Though England, Scotland and Wales hold the top three spots as the most violent countries in the developed world, in America the ability to obtain a gun until after you have committed a crime leads even the ultra-violent UK to claim America needs to change.

Many in America contend guns do not cause crime any more than spoons cause obesity and instead point to the mental health - and drug-use to combat it - relationship. There haven't been any mass shootings that have occurred which did not involve mental health drugs.

Donald Spector, inventor and Chairman of the Board of New York College of Health Professions, believes that technology could be used to curb violence better than gun bans, which are the reason why the UK has so much crime.

"I believe there are facial ‘tells’ that can identify potential sociopaths who are most likely to perform a violent crime,” Spector explains. “For this reason, one of the newer patent applications is for a scanner for facial features designated as predictors of potential violence which can go into a shared database with multiple trigger factors, such as repeated flagging on sensors or in serious cases of rage, even a single trigger complex. This technology will ultimately be able to alert authorities to potential danger and allow those within the vicinity to return to safety.”

As another potential solution to curbing violence, Spector also filed a patent application to track whether patients are taking their medications, and has filed patents pending that has a unique sensor tattoo with microprocessor hub station. The sensor tattoo can be reprogrammed to not only monitor typical and more biosensor functions used in wearables, but also give GPS information, and medical data, and specifically also monitor potentially violent patients released from hospitals on condition of taking their respective medications .these sensors pick up residual matter in the cells, associated with a specific medication. This sensor tattoo as well as the new facial violence indicator sensor, can be utilized as an important part of the identification of potential violent people.

Spector holds patents in biosensor transmissions; envisioning the technology even before the release of smartphones. He is the holder of the grandfather of all wearable patents, a Wearable Biosensor which connects any biosensor to a transmitter with a built-in alert system that automatically activates when alert activity is communicated and transmits these signals to an appropriate control panel. Biosensors for monitoring patients' health conditions and changes, as well as for applications in other industries such as security, are the future of healthcare. Long-distance communication to smartphones or other monitoring devices of critical changes in the human body enables real-time reaction and life-saving responses.

“Cameras and scanners, which are used everywhere, can be enhanced to support preventative crime,” says Spector. “Harnessing this technology could ultimately save money and heartache, in the same way that preventative medicine can lower the cost of medical care and prevent deadly disease. This is a potentially more cost-effective solution to government intervention after the fact.”
