the genetic roots of crime

there's no easy answer to the question of why some people end up in jails and prisons while others do not. It's a mathematical reality that the American criminal justice system disproportionately punishes poor people and black people for the same crimes as wealthier and white people.

But at the same time, the population of people who end up in prison do share some traits. And scientists have now traced one common criminal trait to specific genes.

Antisocial Personality Disorder (ASPD) is wildly overrepresented in prisons. Take a crowd of 100 people of the street, and chances are just one to three of them will have ASPD. Take 100 people from a prison, and you can expect 40 to 70 of them to have the disorder.

That's significant, because ASPD has been linked with aggression, irritability, disregard for rules, disregard for other people, and dishonesty.

The liberal elite ... know that the people simply cannot be trusted; that they are incapable of just and fair self-government; that left to their own devices, their society will be racist, sexist, homophobic, and inequitable -- and the liberal elite know how to fix things. They are going to help us live the good and just life, even if they have to lie to us and force us to do it. And they detest those who stand in their way."

I wonder, too, about Oppositional Defiant Disorder or whatever the exact name.

i was diagnosed as odd as a teen, another name for it is, "teenage rebellion" and/or "would you like a reason to sedate your kid into compliance". teenagers with odd are known to listen to large amounts of punk rock and/or gangster rap and relentlessly question their religious upbringing.

As its name indicates, Oppositional Defiant Disorder (also referred to as Oppositional Defiance Disorder or ODD) is a disorder characterized by anger, defiance, and negativity. Adolescents and teenagers who have Oppositional Defiant Disorder are prone to be destructive, belligerent, and physically violent.

Oppositional Defiant Disorder may begin to manifest in children as young as 7, and commonly surfaces by age 13; however, reaching the ages of 14 does not mean that a young person is now immune from developing Oppositional Defiant Disorder.
Though Oppositional Defiant Disorder is more commonly diagnosed in boys, girls can develop this disorder.
It is important to understand that Oppositional Defiant Disorder is not a “phase” or a temporary period of adolescent moodiness. Young people who have Oppositional Defiant Disorder are unlikely to grow out of the disorder.
Left untreated, adolescents and teens who struggle with Oppositional Defiant Disorder may develop additional conduct disorders, may be at increased risk for developing antisocial personality disorder, and are also at risk for depression, substance abuse, and a host of additional unhealthy behaviors.
Causes of Oppositional Defiant Disorder
As is the case with depression, learning disabilities, and many other emotional and behavioral problems that affect adolescents and teenagers, Oppositional Defiant Disorder does not lend itself to quick diagnosis and one clear cause.
Mental health professionals and other experts attribute the development of Oppositional Defiant Disorder to a host of possible causes, including factors in the genetic, psychological, and social realms.
When considering if a child may have Oppositional Defiant Disorder, it is important to also assess the child for disorders such as depression, panic/anxiety disorder, learning disabilities, ADHD, and similar conditions. Students who have been struggling with these issues without the benefit of diagnosis or treatment may be much more likely to behave in a manner that resembles Oppositional Defiant Disorder.
Symptoms of Oppositional Defiant Disorder
Students with Oppositional Defiant Disorder will exhibit many (or even all) of the following:
Hostility toward peers, teachers, parents, and other family members
Persistent negative or pessimistic attitude
Refusal to obey orders or follow directions
Aggression toward others (both verbal and physical aggression)
Anger that can quickly boil over into rage
Propensity to be easily frustrated and to quickly blame others for personal failures
Loss of most or all friendships
Continuous problems in school and, eventually, with law enforcement officers
To meet the criteria for being categorized as Oppositional Defiant Disorder, adolescents and teenagers who exhibit these symptoms must do so for a period of at least six months — and the severity of these behaviors must be greater than “normal” adolescent angst or teen anger.
Oppositional Defiant Disorder Treatment
Determining the optimal treatment for a child with ODD is dependent upon a number of factors, including the age of the student, the nature and severity of the Opposition Defiant Disorder, and the presence of other disorders and disabilities that may have contributed to or been exacerbated by the Opposition Defiant Disorder.
In some cases, the best treatment may involve some or all of the following: behavior modification, individual therapy, family therapy, social skills education. In cases of younger children who have been diagnosed with Oppositional Defiant Disorder, the treatment focuses more on equipping the parents with the skills and strategies for managing and modifying the inappropriate behavior. Among adolescents and teens, treatment will most likely focus on both the child and the family.
Depending upon the nature of the Opposition Defiant Disorder and the presence of any co-occurring disorders, Oppositional Defiant Disorder treatment may also involve medication. While no single medication has yet been developed to directly treat ODD, certain medications have proved successful in certain cases (especially when the effects of a co-occurring disorder such as ADHD or mood/panic disorder can be lessened via medication).

again. weird.

it's your favorite topic lib! don't forget this part..

In the past, claims about specific genes and violence have been — in the researchers' words — "misused" by prosecutors as evidence that defendants are violent. And as more studies like this one link specific genes to the potential for violence, that danger only grows.

There are valid, important reasons for scientists to deepen their understandings of disorders like ASPD, but also real danger of people's genes being used as evidence that they are criminals.

An international team of Finnish, American, British, and Swedish researchers examined data from the Finnish CRIME sample — a database of psychological tests and genetic material from 794 Finnish prisoners taken between 2010-2011.

The findings of this study cannot be implemented for any prediction purposes, or brought into courthouses to be given any legal weight.

Of the 794 prisoners, a full 568 screened positive for ASPD. By comparing that group's genetic material to a large control sample from the general population, the researchers identified a number of genes that may play a role in at least some ASPD cases
