Socrates doesn't think killing Petis will be honest to their purpose to make the community safe and honorable: staining blood on their hands won't make them feel right. Remember when Socrates killed that big convict that was driving the cat burglar crazy? Socrates noticed that even after killing the man, the cat burglar was still depressed and insane.... Killing just made Socrates more heavy with blood, even though he had good intentions.
