Despite what 1950s pulp movies would have us believe... I trust scientists WAY more than politicians, lobbyists, the NRA, cops, my dad, you, Jon
Stewart OR Bill O'Reilly, the President. In fact, I can't think of a sub-strata of American society I trust more than the scientific community.
It's hilarious to me that folks immediately jump to the "pre-crime" conclusion from a report about genetic research. If they can do research and
discover a *reason* people go bitchcakes and kill dozens of innocents, then that's wonderful news. If they isolate that gene, you know what will
happen? People will be shipped to a moon-prison to live the rest of their... no no... they'll research a way to TREAT the problem. You have to
identify the problem in order to treat it. It's become obvious to everyone that there is a mental illness that "causes" these seemingly
mild-mannered people to suddenly decide to shoot up a school. It's also obvious that the paranoid neanderthals aren't going to let us regulate
assault weapons soooo, the next best thing is isolating the mental malfunction that is leading to this and figure out a way to treat it.
To read this thread you would think people didn't know there was a such thing as treatment for mental illness.
