The biggest problem we have in capital punishment is the restitution theory , the families of the victims think that this will make them feel better lf the person who cause their loved ones harm get the same treatment or something worse than what happened to them (Thiroux, et.al, 2012). This theory is basically to make someone else feel better in a violent situation.
