Because he is white and old? Still hates the 2A, and all for tax, tax, tax, and spend (with more than a bit to benefit himself evidently). Did he raise a fuss about the trolley or any of the redistribution policies of rob and neglect from Ward 2 & 3 to handout to the rest of the city?i think not.

Typical drapery of a “what’s good for thee is not for me” leftist. No different than the rest. As a long time constituent of his, I say eff him. Not to say he will he replaced by anyone better.

I know, right?

A 12' wide hollowed out shell of a townhouse down there starts at a mil and a half!

Who says crime doesn't pay?

Sounds like you'd support a return to eugenics, forced sterilisation, literacy tests for voters and all that sort of thing.
Bob do you really get that from the comment Steve made?
Observing facts, is not the same thing as recommending actions

Does observing that smokers get cancer mean that one is recommending sterilizing smokers??

An there is already "eugenics" going on in the US with regard to IQ. Some people with their health providers are getting embryos tested for genetic conditions, including some intellectual defects, right now when doing IVF where an embryo is selected from a set of fertilized embryos.

Are you saying you oppose letting parents decide if, out of a dozen fertilized eggs, they will skip implanting the ones with a genetic defect influencing IQ? That is eugenics.

IQ is both genetic and environmental, more genetic based, but certainly with inputs from both, and we know for a fact that lower IQ is very strongly associated with violent crime commission.

That is not "outdated," but all the current science. Nations with lower average IQ have higher crime rates, states with lower average IQ have higher crime rates, and even siblings in the same family those with lower IQ are more likely to commit crime.

As far as physical attributes correlating to violent criminality, all the evidence is that key attributes, such as IQ, mental capability, whether or not you have a penis, is hugely correlated to violent crime commission.

So what can we do to influence IQ and therefor reduce crime? Well even though it is mostly genetic, it is not all genetic. Now we can't (yet) make someone with a genetic based maximum of 90 IQ go higher, but we can keep them from going lower -- through proper nutrition, better education.
