1) I'm very much in favor of the use of the death penalty for violent offenders. There are some violent and dangerous people who just have to be eliminated.
2) I'm very much in favor of DNA testing of the accused.
There was a time that I was concerned about the use of the death penalty--I didn't trust the government to find the right perp to bring before a jury. But the more that I hear about DNA testing being able to connect perps to crimes, the more I find myself supporting the death penalty.
