As seen many time in Macbeth’s fall he becomes meticulous in his actions, going overbroad to change or follow his fate except this one instance. Early in the story he was willing to kill a longtime friend Banquo his son, and his willingness to murder an entire man’s family.

After the king 's death, Macbeth expresses his hatred towards killing the king "I have no spur/To prick the sides of my intent, but only/Vaulting ambition, which overlaps itself/And falls on the ' other." Specifically, under his new state of power, he was taking extra precautions to prevent anyone from taking his dignity and bloodline. Simultaneously becoming apprehensive of his throne for this purpose he kills Banquo otherwise his descendants will inherit the throne, and the killing of Macduff 's family since Macbeth was suspicious of his downfall might be coming.

Once he came home, she told him, “What beast was’t, the, / That made you break this enterprise to me? / When you durst do it, then you were a man; / And to be more than what you were, you would / Be so much more the man” (1.7.47-51). This confirms how she had to threaten Macbeth in order for him to even think about killing the king. She wanted to persuade him to think if he killed King Duncan, then he would be so much more of a man.

Macbeth slowly becomes a new shade of evil with every action he makes as he sends murderers to murder his good friend Banquo. ¨I will advise you where to plant yourselves, acquaint you with the perfect spy o´th´time, the moment on´t; for´t must be done tonight, and something from the palace; always thought that I require a clearness.” (3.1.129-133) Macbeth gives ill advice to the murderers to kill Banquo because of his so-said ¨wrong doings¨.

Should the mentally challenged get another chance if they have killed someone and could do it again. No one should get another chance if they have committed a crime worthy of the death penalty. They should not get another chance because everyone is taught right from wrong and in John Steinbeck 's book Of Mice and Men Lennie Knew what he did was wrong and that is why he went to the creek where George told him to go if he ever got in trouble like he had before and he would again. George is justified in killing Lennie because he knew Lennie kill again and would never get better and their dream would never come true, it was a mercy killing and was the best thing for Lennie at that moment, and George knew Lennie would keep making the same mistakes and eventually would make one that even he could not forgive him for. That is why George is justified.
“There is no flag large enough to cover the shame of killing innocent people”-Howard Zinn, if a person is innocent, there is no reason for them to die. However, if the person does something really bad, or attacks you, you have every right to kill them. Therefore, in the book, Lennie kills Curley’s wife, so George kills Lennie. (John Steinbeck, Of Mice and Men) George should not be punished for killing Lennie. George realized Lennie would never get better and the dream would never come true.
