Lennie was a clear danger to himself and if he stayed alive and he was a bit weird. Talking to the dog saying “now maybe George aint gunna let me tend no rabbits, if he finds out you got killed”. Lennie is too much trouble for everyone. Although Lennie was annoying, the reasoning for killing him shows you that George thought did the right thing to kill Lennie. It was best that he was shot because he would of gone through so much suffering.
The Ultimate Sacrifice: To Kill One Person Too Protect Many Difficult decisions are made by everyone, in fact, they are a factor of life. Within John Steinbeck’s novella Of Mice and Men one of the characters, George, was pressured to quickly decide on a life changing event. That decision being too kill his friend Lennie or, as a result, let him die at the hands of somebody else, someone who wanted to harm him. As George knew, Lennie’s requisite death was needed in order to protect him. George’s decision was the appropriate decision considering that Lennie was a danger to himself and others; furthermore, George acted out of love.Therefore, by killing his friend George protected his companion as well as numerous others.
"Ain’t No Good to Himself nor Anybody Else" “You seen what they did to my dog tonight? They says he wasn’t no good to himself nor anybody else. I wish somebody’d shoot me when I ain’t no good no more.”(60) Candy spoke these words implying that death is better than being no good to himself or anybody else. The same is true for Lennie. Lennie wasn’t good for himself because he couldn’t survive on his own.
One example is the parallel between Candy and his dog, and George and Lennie. Candy’s dog had been suffering for a very long time, and the most humane thing was to put him down and relieve him of future misery. Candy, however, can’t bring himself to do it, so Carlson shoots the dog instead. Afterwards, Candy tells George, “I ought to have shot that dog myself, George. I shouldn’t have let no stranger shoot my dog” (Steinbeck 60).
Hamlet’s fathers ghost had told Hamlet when they were talking outside that he only wanted revenge for his uncle murdering him and when Hamlet asked him what about my mother and then the ghost said leave her to heaven and to those thorns that in her bosom lodge, to prick and sting her. He was explaining to Hamlet that he didn’t want anything bad to happen to her just for her to have that burden of moving on
Candy’s greatest fear is that once he is no longer able to help with cleaning, he will be “disposed of.” Even before his dog had died, he had this fear, but the passing of Candy’s dog made it much more apparent in Candy’s eyes. Like his dog, he has lived beyond his usefulness and he is frail and powerless. Candy was called a “lousy ol’ sheep” by Curley’s wife which demonstrates how he’s useless in the eyes of everyone else, and that his fear is not only lurking in his own mind but also in the minds of others that the ranch has no use for Candy anymore. Candy is also very important for the fact that he foreshadows Lennie’s death. The relationship between Candy and his dog is a parallel to the relationship of George and Lennie.
The next night one of the workers persuaded Candy about his dog and telling him that he should kill him so he didn’t have to suffer. They killed the dog because of its old age, which was the best thing to do. After Lennie watching the dog being killed he asked George about what their plans were again for the future of them. George repeated it and said as soon as we get enough money we will buy a house with a few acres of land, and a few animals.
Then they said "Got him, by God ... right in the back of the head" (107). This quote shows that even though George loved him as a brother he shot Lennie in the back of the head to save him from a more painful death from Curley, this is still considered murder because it wasn't Georges responsibility to kill him. I believe that John Steinbeck's Of Mice and Men should be banned because throughout the novel there are offensive and vulgar language, profanity, racism, sexism, loose word of "nigger" and the treatment to the mentally retarded. This is why it should be banned because this probably isn't suited for the young people like Junior High or lower, but probably is okay to read for High School.
(Doc D) Hamlet is yelling and screaming at her and this is how Hamlets action aren’t justified. (Doc C) Ophelia is also mad at Hamlet for killing her father and cause of that she ends of killing herself by drowning. So Hamlet instead of just killing his father he kills Ophelia and Polonius. His actions could have been justified because she knew they were spying on Hamlet she could have told his secretly that they were spying on him but she didn’t. I still don’t think he had to yell and scream at her and he also didn’t have to kill her father in the
Candy’s dog was old and useless, and was put out of a slow and painful death by Carlson. Lennie, as a wanted murderer, could no longer move on and work. He would be hunted down and killed horribly or put in jail. Thus, Lennie’s death is significant because it is the most hard-hitting death in the novel and mirrors the merciful death of Candy’s dog. Lennie is a quiet, simple but strong man with the mind of a child.
