Now a psychopath is described as;
Individuals who behave in persistently antisocial ways are often loosely described as pyschopaths. Doctors often do not understand the cause and cure
is rare. The abnormal behaviour of a heroin addict is an example of pyschopathy in which the cause is clear.
I believe that this really doesn't explain in enough detail about psychopaths, but its a start. Most serial killers are labelled as psychopaths and
its true that they are, but what drives them??
If we take serial killers, most of them have a trouble childhood with alot of violents mainly from the father of the house. This could explain most
violent criminal personailities and why they commit their crimes. But still this doesn't explain all psychopaths only a few.
Lets say a child parents are killed by a group of black males, the child could grow up hating black males and when he hits late teens could have
psychopathy signs. But some serial killers do not fit the bill i.e Ted bundy.
Ted bundy is a psychopath and we know he is a homicidal manic too. Ted came from a good background and he used this for his gain and the women who he
murdered all had something in common.
The mind of psychopath is hard to understand and very complex indeed. The question still remains unanswered......what causes a psychopath???
