65. Thank you for all that information
It occurred to me while reading your post that we already know what the most prominent genetic marker is for violent crimes of all sorts, including child molestation. That is the Y chromosome. I don't remember the exact number, but people with one Y chromosome are about 10 times more likely to commit any number of violent crimes than those without a Y chromosome. And people with 2 Y chromosomes are about 7 times more likely to end up in prison than those with one. So, what should we do about that? Incarcerate anyone with a Y chromosome? Good luck with that idea. Once we start locking up people for what they might do, we are well on our way to a police state.
