In addition, in your text [American Delinquency 4th ed.] on pages 124 & 125, the idea that one is born a criminal began with Cesar Lombroso an Italian physician. He expounded the theory that some individuals are closer to their primitive ancestors than others. His original work, published in 1876, was that some individuals are born with strong innate predisposition to behave antisocially. Lombroso proposed that the criminal was of a species that had not yet evolved sufficiently towards the more advanced Homo sapiens, but was genetically somewhere in between. His data came from prisoners and this group was compared to non-criminal military personnel. Lombroso concluded that there was a physical or inherited difference between the criminal and non-criminal. These anomalies included an asymmetrical skull, flattened nose, large ears, fat lips, enormous jaw, high cheekbones, and Mongolian eye characteristics. Lombroso also detailed behavioral characteristics that accompanied the physical ones and concluded that these criminals were throw backs to an earlier period in man’s evolution.
