RE: Criminal Mind
by: Ian

There are many factors that may involve why a person commits a crime (anger, peer pressure etc). However, it has been proven that a person is more likely to commit a crime if they have a abnormal frontal cortex which can be caused by many things (dropped as a child, mother was exposed to smoking or smoked while pregnant, etc.).

If you're interested in such things might I recommend taking a Criminology class as it covers said topic and other various theories as to why criminals do what they do.
