    Here's an interesting article on a study done on male kids and delinquency problems. There seems to be genetics involved and environmental stressors that make it worse or set it off in some kids.

    It's interesting that the study still suggests that good parenting is integral.

    I can see it now. The "I have 1 of 3 crime genes" defense.

    Thanks for the info, txsvicki!

    I am not to blame, it is all genetics, environment and those pesky parents did not sit down to dinner with me, so I am blameless.

    I can see it now.........

    Exactly what I was thinking. Soon, nobody will be held accountable for their actions.
