These scientists get money for old rope. Would you give a chimpanzee at the zoo a gun, knife or machete?  If not, WHY not?

This is not rocket science.

Perhaps genetic editing and CRISPR can someday fix this problem?

I agree with you, but now we have actual scientific evidence for why joggers chimp out. So even the biggest naysayers would be hard-pressed to disagree without going into ideological autism. Hispanics (mestizos) also probably have a higher incidence of this as well, since low-activity MAO-A alleles are associated with violent crime and gang activity, although it's not as high as in Blacks, it would still be higher than it is in Whites in comparison.

It's makes sense that elevated violence in some West African descended populations is largely due to one gene because there are some West African countries, like Senegal, that have very low violent crime rates. Senegalese are closely related to other west Africans, but they probably came to have a low incidence of this gene through drift or founder effects.

Senegal still has a pretty high intentional homicide rate on par with Nicaragua at 7.38 per 100,000. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_intentional_homicide_rate
