Thesis: The use of capital punishment (lethal injection) as a ruling from a judge should be increased for criminal Punishment. Those who argue that capital punishment (lethal injection) should be embraced for criminal punishment Supporters believe that the expense to society is much lower than that of life in prison. Supporters believe that DNA testing and other methods of modern crime scene science can now effectively eliminate almost all uncertainty as to a person's guilt or innocence. Supporters believe prisoner parole or escapes can give criminals another chance to kill. Supporters the death penalty gives closure to the victim's families.
