Why Is George Justified When He Shot Lennie

Satisfactory Essays
I believe that George was justified when he shot Lennie because lennie was going to go to prison anyways,Curly would have done the same thing but he would have made Lennie surfer and George did it quick and painless,the book foreshadows what was going to happen at the end of the book. Curly was trying to find Lennie to shoot him for killing his wife,But george already new where Lennie would go if he got into any trouble because George is the one who told him if anything happened to go and wait for him by the river.So in Georges mind it would have been better if he would go find Lennie before Curly did.I know that some might say that he could have taken hime to prison but Curly could have killed him anyways and it would have been better
