Ender who is a young commander has killed 2 bullies already. Even though Ender had killed 2 bullies Ender should be protect from getting sentenced to jail or anything. This is because Ender was trying to protect himself from the bullies. Secondly he was trying to get in hold of the situation. Lastly Ender was trying to warn other bullies not to pick a fight on him again.
Both the situations when Ender killed 2 boys were when he was alone and there were many bullies that came as a gang. In page 6 of the book Ender’s game it says “to keep him from taking in a pack tomorrow. I have to win this now, and for all time, or I’ll fight everyday and it will get worse and worse.” This shows how Ender was just trying to protect himself from the bullies but actually making the situation worse by killing them.
The second reason Ender should be defended is because he was just trying to get in hold of the situation that had surrounded him. Without this charisma at such a young age no one would have respected Ender for his ability to only fight in battle school. For example, Bonzo was the second boy Ender killed. Bonzo had no respect for Ender since he was young and became a commander and because Ender was trying to get in hold of the situation he died.
Lastly, Ender should be defended for his actions because he was trying to warn other bullies not to pick a fight on him again. In page 6 in the book Ender’s game after Ender finishes his fight with Stilson he gives a warning to the group saying “You might be having some idea of ganging up on me. You could probably beat me up pretty bad. But just remember what I do to people who try to hurt me” Which shows how Ender was just trying to give a warning.
To sum up, Ender should be defended for his actions of killing 2 boys. He should be defended because he was trying to protect himself, get in control of the situation and was trying to warn other bullies not to pick a fight on him again.
