Then he shoots an enemy sniper. He goes and finds out that the enemy sniper he shot was his brother. I believe the theme of the story ¨The Sniper¨ by Liam O'Flaherty is that fear can lead to destructive decisions. The theme that fear can lead to destructive decisions is introduced when he kills the man in the turret and kills the woman. He shoots the man and woman because he is scared of what the man and woman could do to him.
George from George Steinbeck’s “Of Mice and Men” made the right decision of killing Lennie in the story, while other might disagree. George shot Lennie in the back of the head to save him from the suffering and humiliation from a mad and revengeful Curley. George did this not out of hate, but out of the love of their friendship. “George raised the gun and his hand shook, and he dropped his hand to the ground again” (Steinbeck). George is struggling to come to terms that he is going to shoot his best friend.
At the end of “To Kill A Mockingbird”, Bob Ewell attacks the children and tries to kill them. Boo Radley comes to the rescue by saving the children and killing Bob. When Sheriff Tate gets to the scene, he says “I’m the Sheriff of this county and I say Mr. Ewell fell on is knife”. The decision made by Sheriff Tate was to protect Boo, knowing if it got out that he killed Bob he wouldn’t be able to defend himself. Therefore, I agree with the decision.
The book states that Johnny said, “‘I killed him. I killed that boy.’ Bob, the handsome Soc, was lying there in the moonlight, doubled up are still” (51). This quote shows how Johnny killed Bob while Pony was almost getting drowned to death by the other Socs. The two boys then had to go and hide somewhere since they had just committed murder. This heroic action changes the way he views Johnny because he used to see him just as a friend, while now he was a lifesaver to Ponyboy.

For example, he second guessed his action when he was at the brush. Had the chance to do right from wrong. Yet, he still carried out his plan. A little before the execution, he stole a ranch man’s gun and knew exactly where to shoot Lennie for not even a single cry of hell can burst out of him.
Lennie had the dream of tending to the rabbits on the farm that he and George dreamt of. Throughout the novel, Lennie kills a lot of things.

Another example of George and Lennie’s friendship is when George has to shoot Lennie, because he had accidentally murdered Curley’s wife. George knew that he would have let Curley get to Lennie he would have tortured Lennie. It was George’s responsibility to take care of Lennie. George knew that they could not just run away from this. For the better of Lennie, George decided that he should kill Lennie himself (Steinbeck).
