It's 2034, and in response to rising crime levels, the government launches the LOMBROSO program - Legal Offensive on Murder: Brain Research Operation for the Screening of Offenders. All males over 18 will get screened by advanced brain imaging technologies and a DNA blood test.
The series is set in the near future in which it is possible to instantaneously quantify a person’s state of mind, personality, and probability of committing a crime, all recorded on an individual’s “Psycho-Pass”. When their “Crime Coefficient” index becomes too high, they are pursued and apprehended by police officers known as Inspectors, and their ‘hunting dogs’ the Enforcers; in this way, order is maintained. Unit One of the Public Safety Bureau’s division of criminal investigation, navigate the system to uphold justice in their seemingly Utopian society.
Well I believe that if we can detect the genes that cause violence that we will have the tech to alter them also, therefore this scenario simply would be fixed, not taken to extreme measures of preventing people from having children.
To be honest, the chances of us "finding" genes specific to violence are not very good.
but they lack something in a specific part of their brain or that part of their brain hasn't developed properly due to bad gene mutations or other factors.
I think all of us have the ability to snap if we get pushed too far.
