  1. About 70% of UK violent crime is done by people who have some form of head or head>neck injury. Their mugshots show evidence of this because their eyes exhibit Horners Syndromw – a light or positional discrepancy between them.

    The injury is often vascular related, which means it can be mended, that is provided psychiatrists allow neurologists to examine and operate on the criminals.

    Barriers to this are tied up with the public’s insistence on recriminative justice, but no amount of that will reverse the original organic damage causing people to lose empathy, logic, correct judgement, ability to concentrate and to express themselves and remember how they want to.

    Leeds jail is researching the relationship between violent crime and head and head>neck injuries, and there is similar research at Swansea University. But until head hitting is banned, and all school leavers examined for a predisposition to be violent, the analysis will continue but to no avail. There is also the Bandura Effect – childhood observational learning which makes them more likely to kill people when they are adults, that is through watching adult violence. Anyone exhibiting both of these syndromes needs intensive treatment including de-hypnosis, otherwise, in the wrong circumstances they will maim and kill.

    Good luck with your work.

    • Rosemary – The U.S. Department of Justice sponsored a National Crime Victimization Study in 2007. This evaluation found that 75.6 percent of all offenders were male and only 20.1 percent were female. In the UK in the case of homicide, men are more frequently the perpetrator. For those suspects where proceedings concluded in 2011/12, 89% were male (210 suspects) and 11% were female (25 suspects). For crimes against the person men were responsible for 33,171 offences or 89% of the total in 2011/12. For sexual offences, men were found guilty in 98% of cases (although there are problems with the data as many crimes of this type go unreported). In the remaining cases, the victim wasn’t able to identify the gender of the offender. To gender neutralise violent action and claim that the causes are primarily physiological is to ignore everything this blog is about.

      • Yes. That’s why the crimes continue. But one day, there will be enough empathy with the victims to face the fact that people are violent for reasons, and these reasons can be treated, so the violence stops. Sadly, you, like much of psychiatry according to Nick Clegg, are still in the Dark Ages, intent on reporting and analysing but not interested in solving.

  2. Yes Rosemary, I am in the Dark Ages because I disagree with you! I am perfectly aware of the head injury argument, but it in no ways explains the gender bias.

  3. I find it very odd given violence is overwhelmingly perpetrated by males against females that all these males are supposedly suffering from Horners Syndrome!! Just another convenient excuse/justification for males to commit violence against women and girls and then said male perpetrators claiming ‘I’m not responsible because I suffer from Horners Syndrome!’

    Once upon a time not too long ago male scientists claimed women and girls are ruled by their hormones; have wandering uteruses and hence this is why women and girls supposedly experienced ‘hysteria’ and are incapable of rational/intellectual thought because they are biologically ruled by their emotions. This was how males justified their misogynistic lie that women and girls must be subjected to male control/male oppression. Not so with violent males because they are suffering from Horners Syndrome so this neatly absolves them from enacting their choice and agency – instead they are victims of a medical disorder!

    Whilst the above link focuses on misogynistic male justifications during Greece’s Classical Age, these male lies were widely accepted by men for centuries.
