Batman used to kill criminals all the time

He hurled them off rooftops — including one member of the Frenchy Blake gang whom he tossed with “a mighty heave.” In the first Bat-story, “The Chemical Syndicate,” he punched a criminal into a vat of acid, and says, “A fitting end for his kind.” He also strangled criminals to death with his lasso, kicked them so hard he broke their necks, and punched them so hard they fell to their deaths. In Batman #1, he kills a bunch of Hugo Strange’s henchmen with a machine gun. “Much as I hate to take human life, I’m afraid this time it’s necessary!” Batman shouts.
