I completely support any science and method aimed at preventing crime.
Aside from harming the public and themselves, criminals are a burden on the state. So many funds are spent catching them, then trying them and finally prosecuting and keeping them in jail. If we could prevent crime even a little bit, that means more state money is left to spend on other public services like health care and education.
I didn't know much about crime science before but I'm definitely in support of it after reading this article.
