Are you referring to when he has to kill Lennie? George has no choice. If Curley and the mob didn't torture and kill Lennie, they would (at the very least) lock him in a cage and, as Slim said, "that ain't no way to live". George could not let the situation go any further, he could no longer protect Lennie.
