There also are situations out there where the kid was from a great home with loving and non-violent parents, but they still turned out to be killers. I believe immensely that certain surroundings can shape a person's behavior, but when is it time to blame the person who actually committed the crime instead of their surroundings/parents/religion/favorite group? Everyone wants to be a part of a group, but that particular group's ideals doesn't give pass to any individual committing crimes against humanity as a whole. ( fuck, maybe I should have passed on that last bong toke.)

But I completely agree, a good majority of these types of cases are a result of abuse by those that are supposed to love and protect them. It's too bad that a simple mental health test before anyone has kids is looked at as infringing on a person's right to reproduce. If you're a shitty and mean person, there's a good chance that your children will be as well.
