John Derbyshire quoted

“a story about Dorian Johnson, friend of Ferguson shootee Michael Brown:

Johnson grew up in Walnut Park, one of St. Louis’s tougher areas, where he lived in a house shared by his mother and aunt, who had 19 children between them.” [Emphasis added]

It appears that Chez Johnson (at its peak 19 minors and two single moms) is no stranger to the law in North St Louis.

St. Louis student killed, four others hurt in crash near school,  By Margaret Gillerman and Valerie Schremp Hahn, Post-Dispatch.Com September 7, 2012

Here we see the sibling of the erstwhile Eyewitness Dorian, a certain D'Angelo Johnson, kill himself in an illegal drag race. He also appears to have almost wiped out his friends in the attempt to play chicken with a tree trunk. Is the aggression of the St Louis Johnson clan genetic?
