Percentage of psychopaths in the population
At least 1% of the population is psychopathic (no empathy/compassion/remorse, etc). This turns out to be a lot of people when you do the math. Looking at the recent Colorado tragedy, there seems to be some bogus witnesses. But it doesnt disprove the murders, nor the killer being one of these psychos.

If the purpose is to detract from the libor scandal, it is only temporary. The backlash will resume soon. If the purpose was to enact more gun control, this will be a failed attempt to revoke all guns. The second amendment will never be revoked. There would be hell to pay.

IMO- just a psycho that doesnt deserve his name to be repeated

The term psychopath is itself a distraction.

'Normal' people act like psychopaths in mobs or under stress.

Idiocy in all its forms is inherently human.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 5135901


This detracts from the real issue. Normal people aren't by definition psychopaths even in certain situations, mobs etc. They are temporarily insane or temporarily act insane but that's not psychopathy.


Some people think psychopaths make up 3-5 percent of the population.

The important question to find an answer for, is how large is the percentage of psychopaths in positions of power?

Psychopaths gravitate to and are disproportionately represented in positions where they have power over people.

Police, politicians, prison guards, bureaucrats, etc.

I suggest that the percentage of psychopaths could be as high as 20-30 percent in those fields. Perhaps higher. Because once a psychopath gets in power they attract and hire others just like them.

I believe it's far more than 1%. The downfall of American families (due to heavy brainwashing of the elite) has caused many children to develop psychological problems, to the point of being psychopathic. Drugs, alcohol, homosexuality, adultery, divorce, and dead beat fathers are just a few of the many reasons this is happening. While the illuminati may have had a hidden agenda, the majority of citizens were raised with Godly principles when this country was founded. We need Jesus back in America!

When the supreme court takes away the rights of the majority, you get the election of 2000. But im not supporting Gore here either. Which leads to the main problem with our electoral system and its campaigns. You get an election with characters like obama and romney as the only seemingly viable options. Its extremely sad to me (being a huge RP supporter).

if 95% knows killing is wrong then why do the majority of US citizens "support the troops" - why do the majority not condemn Gitmo?

The majority are psychos of a different sort - as a pack they will agree to kill innocent people when sanitized under the color of law and carried out by so called authority. What they really object to is a sheep that gets above himself and acts without sanction of authority.
