What a shame. 19 years old and he's already a convicted felon. Not only that, but he obviously doesn't 'get it'. It's most likely a permanent condition for this man and many other people. It seems to me that at some time in the not too distant future, scientists will be able to identify a 'criminal mind' gene. The problem is, what then???
