Image via WikipediaI have this theory, criminals are born not made. It isn't nurture it's nature. If it was up to me, I would sterilize all convicted criminals to prevent them from having children.OK, go ahead and vote for me.
Now this news item of collective DNA of juvenile offenders makes sense. It's only the first step to what I consider a good policy of preventing crminals from breeding and multiplying.
Sometimes I write tongue in cheek, this time I'm dead serious. A long time ago I read about a man who was convincted as a serial rapist. It made the news because his father was also a rapist. That was no surprise to me. It just makes sense.
For too long we've passed the blame of recalcitrant behaviour on the environment and have excused criminal behavior because of a person's circumstances. People brought up in poverty must always be thieves...the Oliver Twist syndrome...
In America, jails are called correctional facilities. Get real, you can't correct criminal behavior it's in the genes.
