... however the University of California found that in 60% of dogs aggression could be treated with castration
Various studies of the effects neutering has overall on male and female dog aggression have been unable to arrive at a consensus
.....half a million crimes a year are committed by people who have been released from jail, convicted or cautioned within the previous year12 months. Around 50,000 were committed by criminals who had previously been jailed at least 11 times....More than 3,000 of these new crimes were serious violent or sexual offences.
There is, of course, a fraction of a percent (at least) of people who are wrongly convicted. And far too many people sent to the "criminal training camps" for minor offenses such as possession of some weed.However, risking one's own family jewels may act as a deterrent to some would be criminals to discourage them from takings other people's jewels.

No, it would still be wrong.
There have been gene variants linked with impulsivity, rage and violence.Perhaps someday when we can do genetic engineering on living people, we might be able to do something about the genetic causes of some violence?Then more conventional therapies like counseling might be more successful?
