A new study conducted by The Mind Research Network in Albuquerque, N.M., shows for the first time that neuroimaging data can predict the likelihood of whether a criminal will reoffend following release from prison.

This is not some new age crackpot outfit from Santa Fe. They are part of Lovelace and quite credible. Their paper is getting published in the Proceedings of the National Academies of Science, which is one of the premier science organizations in the world.

weenie liar. When we get an actual background check that applies to all, then you can indulge in your paranoid speculation.

Maybe the bigger issue is just what exactly (and how) is this information going to be used?

Actually they were acquired in 2012 by Lovelace Respiratory Research Institute which is a private, non-profit biomedical research org specializing in research on the prevention, treatment and cure of respiratory disease to improve public health. LLRI is the only dedicated research facility on respiratory health in the world. MRN is an independent non-profit research facility on the UNM campus.

Are you saying that they are part of Lovelace Health Systems?

Oh, and they were predicting based on the fact that the people being researched were already "criminals".

That's what I meant, the Lovelace Research Institute, not the HMO.

It's just a study that found a likelihood, not an absolute guarantee that the person would reoffend. I am not surprised that the gun freaks have forced this study into their paranoid government conspiracy hypothesis.

The article you linked makes no mention of the study we are talking about, much less using such a test to take people's guns away.

So, you must believe that people like Jared Loughner should be allowed to keep their guns right up to the moment they start killing people. All the people who have been slaughtered recently by nutjobs with guns are just collateral damage in your obsession to defend the Second Amendment.

Give me a break.

Well, gave you a break.

Instead, it requires mental health professionals to tell local officials if they believe a patient is likely to hurt himself or herself or someone else. Police officials would then be authorized to seize guns that person might own. The name of the patient would also be entered into state and national registries to prevent future firearm purchases. KHN Kaiser Health News

Someone sees this as the Russia experiment. Sees that mental health professionals, who may not use evidenced based criteria, are now forced to go beyond Tarasoff. Impacting someone's civil liberties. Someone brings up how this new (and not yet validated or reliable) brain scan to predict future behavior may be used to curtail someone's civil liberties and you do your usual "how stupid they are" comments.

You really don't need to moderate all of us mental cases on the threads. I am sure you can make yourself feel superior without devaluing people who have ideas outside your paradigm. No harm, no foul.

I am not going to apologize for defending a valid scientific study from the paranoid gun freaks who see conspiracies for the government to take their guns away behind every shadow. These nuts are obsessed with their single issue and every piece of info they get is processed into the question of how it will be used for gun control.

And so tell us, at what point should people like Jared Loughner have their guns taken away? Or do you believe the 2nd Amendment protects him right up to the point when he starts slaughtering people?

So this was a valid scientific study from the paranoid gun freaks? Why don't you give the cite.

You misread my post. I was defending a valid scientific study from attack by paranoid gun freaks. As far as I know the gun freaks don't have a valid study. They just push the panic button every time they twist something around into a conspiracy to take their guns away.

And the issue Kaiser Health Group brought up about mental health issues and how things like this might impact care and seeking of treatment were...off topic for you? Not related? Surely Kaiser's issues, since you had brought up gun nuts, were valid concerns for those in the field of mental health. Not some gun nut conspiracy response.

And I was "funnying" with your sentence structure and it was just a little jest.
