[Gregory N. Price, an economist at Morehouse College and one of the authors of a paper on height and crime] suggested that there may be policy implications in his work, saying, "Public health policies successful at reducing obesity among individuals in the population will not only make society healthier, but also safer."Sure, because if there is a correlation between fat and criminality, it's definitely not the lifetime of being ostracized, bullied, ignored, and/or denied equal pay and opportunities that underlies the elevated potential for a fat person to commit crime, but the fat itself. So we should definitely focus on eradicating fat, rather than prejudice.
"I couldn't help myself, Your Honor! My fat made me do it!" WICKEDFAT!
