Biological Criminal Behavior
Crimes happen every day and everywhere by many different types of people. Research has been proven that genes can influence criminal behavior. Biology is confirmed to play a big role in an individual’s criminality behavior by genetic evidence. Some believe that desire to commit crimes may be inherited and that criminal inclinations are genetically based. Research has been done extensively to discover evidence that would support this claim that has been made by intellectuals. Criminal deeds have always been a motivation due to the debate of nature and nurture. Studies have been done in regards to this debate that has resulted in a conclusion that both genes and environment do play apart in the criminality of a person. Genes do not cause behavior, but they affect tendencies to behave in certain ways (Nurnberger, Aug 10, 2006, para. 3). Research states that crime can be collaborated between the atmosphere and genes. The human behavioral system is neither environmentally or genetically determined, but does have potentials that come through interaction of the environment and genes (Owen, pg.87).
