The science of antisocial behavior is becoming increasingly common in the criminal court room. Forensic psychiatrists at Vanderbilt University have reported they are genetically screening defendants charged with first degree murder for a gene associated with antisocial behavior. Such evidence stemming from current research raises questions as to how that evidence will either mitigate or aggravate punishment to a perpetrator in the criminal justice system, hence the "double-edged sword" of the science of antisocial behavior.
