So, instead of allowing Lennie to be murdered alone and afraid, George took matters into his own hands and made sure his friend died knowing he was cared for and full of hope. Through it's ironic, George’s choice protected Lennie from the malice of others, thus keeping him unafraid and unharmed. However, others may believe

Because of Lennie?s mental impairment and immaturity, he would not be able to handle such animosity. In saying that Lennie is not to blame for the death of Curley?s Wife, Lennie should not have to face the merciless people at the farm.

So did George but unlike the regretful Candy, George made the right decision in saving Lennie from himself and others. Candy’s dog was no good to itself and was going to be shot by strangers. It would have been better for Candy to shoot him himself. It would have been better for Candy’s dog to be saved from himself by a friend than by a stranger.
He joined the conspirators to kill Julius Caesar, didn’t listen the people that tried to help him out, and switched his mind more than he should have. Together all of these things led to Brutus’s downfall and eventually his death. The plot that the conspirators had planned did not work and when they had to flee for their live, the terrible decision became more real to Brutus. Brutus listened to Cassius’s evil ways of talking him into joining the conspirators, then did not listen to his advice that was suppose to help him, Brutus, be successful. Cassius deceived Brutus and convinced Brutus that Caesar was no good and useless to Rome, but was really a lie to make sure Caesar never got crowned.
The march to Phillipi was also a bad idea because if they hadn't gone everybody wouldn't have been killed. Brutus also made poor judgment on his friend Cassius. Cassius was the one persuading Brutus to become one of the conspirators, if he hadn't listened to Cassius, he wouldn't have killed Caesar. Brutus was one of Caesar's best friends, but he was not the greatest friend in the world. He killed his own best friend.
The first example of this was when the monster is talking about the “groans of Clerval” and that they were not “music to [his] ears” (pg 229). The creature showing remorse could mean that he really regretted all the things he did. It's like when one gets really mad and does a lot of things that they eventually regret in the long run. It is like the anger takes over and they do not know what they are doing. This is most likely the same thing that happened to the creature, his rage and thirst for revenge may have provoked his killing spree.

In my eyes these people are seen as pure evil people and they don’t deserve a second chance. In my brother case I know he didn’t mean to hurt the kid, and he felt really bad because he turned his self in. Finally I have to say the death penalty should not be legal anywhere for the simple fact a lot of innocent people can be killed. We have to understand when a family loses a love one they want revenge for them and the only revenge they see a lot of time is that the suspect dies. If we are going to legalize the death penalty there’s no need to say we want to live in a violence free world.
Oedipus was determined to find the killer of King Laius saying, "As for the criminal, I pray to God- whether it be a lurking thief, or one of a number- I pray that that man's life be consumed in evil and wretchedness and as for me this curse applies no less…" (World Lit 316). Creon' s motive of determination was not to back down from his word and law. The law was whoever buries Polyneices would be publicly stoned to death, since Polyneices didn't deserve a proper burial for his actions in war.
