For a project on the book ''Of Mice and Of Men'', I have to prove that George is innocent of the murder of Lennie. My goal is to say that George didn't commit murder, but that it was a justified homicide. I'm planning to use the 4 point underneath a justified homicide : ''When necessarily committed in attempting, by lawful ways and means, to apprehend any person for any felony committed, or in lawfully suppressing any riot, or in lawfully keeping and preserving the peace''. So, I'll say how George is technically protecting future victims of George.
So I need to find what the Californian 197 Penal Code which is on justified homicide was in 1930's around. Does someone know where I could find it?
