He knew Lennie was a good soul. George also knew that Lennie did not realize how strong he really was or how to control his actions. In this case, it was best that George killed him. He killed Lennie quickly. Had George not done this, Curley and the others would have killed Lennie mercilessly.
Regardless of the law, Curley’s morals based on vengeance and masculinity drive him to kill Lennie. George has very different morals based on protecting Lennie, his travel companion and friend. His ultimate goal of helping Lennie leads to him ending Lennie’s life in order to prevent his suffering at the hands of Curley. The concept that morality takes precedence over the law in certain cases is manifested through the decision of Curley to hunt Lennie down and the decision of George to end Lennie’s life in Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck. Curley’s decision to hunt Lennie down for the murder of his wife is one circumstance in which a character’s morals are deemed more important than the laws that govern society.
But he still wants to commit suicide, and comes to pulling the trigger of the gun, but nothing happens. This teenager planned to take two lives, but deep down he only wanted himself to die.

In almost every corner in the world, murder is illegal. However, in this particular situation, I believe that George 's decision to kill Lennie was acceptable due to the fact that it would have been easier for Lennie to die from George then having Curley
The full of experience always makes him to be a rational person. Pony boy start to want to the fight between Socs and Greasers to stop, here are basically three reasons that why he thinks so: They got psychological damage, it cause the death of his friends, and their gangs are very dangerous. First of all, one of Pony boy’s changes throughout the novel is influenced by fighting. Johnny was for self-defense, so he killed Bob.

He knows what the other men are going to do to him. He finds Lennie, puts him in his happy place and kill him before anyone else could. Since George cared so much about Lennie 's death was less tragic than it would have been if the other men found Lennie. Curley 's abandoned his wife showed her little love and compassion. She was lonely and sought attention from anyone who would talk to her, leading to her death.
When Socs attacked Johnny and Ponyboy, a Soc started drowning Ponyboy. So, Johnny went in to help by killing Bob. For example, “You killed him, huh, Johnny?” “Yeah.” His voice quavered slightly. “I had to. They were drowning you, Pony.
