    If we eliminated all the potential children who will become criminals, who will we run for Congress?

    Who will run our major corporations?

    Decent people?!

    We're not equipped to run a society designed by, for and of theives, folks.

    Why do you keep posting junk science? When are you going to start using your brain and do some actual thinking?

    A note of caution: people still think that having the 47 XYY karyotype makes a person highly prone to criminality when it has been shown to not be the case.

    However, if we can find neurophysiological clues that would help us do early interventions in the lives of potential criminals, well that's just dandy.

    Those whacky psychiatrists!

    Everyone who was ever three years old knows that the tooth fairy was a conspiracy of their parents intending to get them to eat their vegetables.
