    No. Even if we were 100 % sure that certain genetics make a person "evil" , sterilising them and separating them from the general population would be enough.

    In reality, things are not that simple. Pretty much everybody is capable of horrible acts, if the conditions are "right".  There is no neat line between " evil people"  and "good people"

    Thing is, most are not. There are plenty of guys with double Y chromosomes that are not psychotic.

    You are assuming that cruelty, violence, sadism and so on, are genetic traits. There is no evidence at all that they are. These are behaviors, not inherited traits.

    Here's the problem:  You share about half your allele set with your parents, siblings, and children.

    If you're evil, so long.

    But in a hypothesized kill-the-evil-genes society, your parents, siblings, and children would also be killed.

    The death penalty is based on what people did, not what they are genetically. For example, Osama bin Laden was killed not because he is evil, but because he committed murder and he could not be arrested to face justice.

    They just need special education in their formative years tailored to their DNA.
