Why does guy kill Beatty?

Asked by Cecilia Beck

Montag kills Captain Beatty for three reasons. First, Captain Beatty represents a threat to Faber, one of Montag’s few true friends. By killing Beatty, he increases Faber’s chances of escaping the city without getting caught. Second, Captain Beatty also represents an immediate threat to Montag himself.
