Having just completed a short stay in Stuart Creek, for unpaid fines and refusing to wear a helmet, it is with much relief that I have read that Maori's, of whom there were a minority present are not genetically predisposed to violence.
I must admit I never argue with a six foot four 140kg Maori.
So, it is not genetic.
This is from a Dr.Hook, I kid you not."While conviction rates for domestic violence of Maori exceed those of any other group there is no indication that the (monoamine oxidase gene) system carried by Maori functions any differently from that of any other ethnic group and certainly no evidence to indicate that it was anything to do with violent behaviour in Maori."
Perhaps if Dr.Hook had to lay abed in a Correctional Facility, he would have more data on which to base his opnions.
