These three reasons justify the actions that George had to take. George was not wrong in killing Lennie in the way that George had only good motives and was only looking out for
Throughout this chapter, we figure that George is tired of taking care of Lennie and doesn’t want to run away anymore. For example, Candy was the first to find out of the death so he retrieves George first. Candy then says,”What done it? George replies,”Ain’t you got any idear? I should of knew.”

"God, you're a lot of trouble," said George. "I could get along so easy and so nice if I didn't have you on my tail. I could live so easy and maybe have a girl”(Steinbeck 7).

When it comes to death it is better to have a peaceful one rather than a harsh death. In the story Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck, George is put in the middle of a desperate situation forcing him to kill his best friend in an act of mercy. After constantly saving Lennie from getting into trouble, it becomes clear that George has the best interest in Lennie. He wants Lennie to become aware of his actions, and maybe one day not be so dependent on someone to keep him out of trouble. George's actions are justified as it was better for a friend to kill Lennie unexpectedly rather than a cruel manner by Curley and his men.

George should have killed Lennie because Lennie can 't live by himself and I believe if George didn 't kill Lennie
