I fear it's only a matter of (short) time before Mayfair bites the dust as well. And just to clear the air since my last post was snipped: IT
DOESN'T MATTER WHAT COLOR, CREED OR SEX YOU ARE. If you are intentionally CAUSING HARM to someone for NO APPARENT REASON other than violence for the
fun of it, YOU ARE AN ANIMAL who should not live with civilized society. Not a racial viewpoint, but a HUMAN viewpoint.

I couldn't agree more ... the problem is that most sociopaths, out-of-control people, including teens, young adults and mature grown adults,
(sociopaths = people who lack a conscience) are NOT behind bars. The majority of sociopaths, all age groups included, are actually free to roam the
Socio-pathology has nothing to do with skin color, ethnicity or religion. Although based on my observations and experiences, I have noticed an
unusually high percentage of sociopaths within the Black community, particularly Black youth. However, this doesn't necessarily mean that most
sociopaths are Black or that a Black child is more likely to become a sociopath.
It has to do with the fact that a part of their brain never developed. The region of the brain that instinctively and intuitively feels empathy and
compassion --- it never fully developed. The reason it never developed varies from one sociopath to another. There's no cure whatsoever for
socio-pathology and there will never be a cure. Sadly, it's incurable because if this region of the brain (including the Oxytocin Receptors) haven't
fully developed by the mid 20's, there really isn't anything that can be done.
While socio-pathology may be due to genetics, sometimes socio-pathology is caused by poor parenting ... or good parenting but other sociopaths happen
to be in the picture (ie. ex-spouse/partner, in-laws, teachers, counselors, friends) and an impressionable young child may never develop empathy
because either they weren't taught by example, or they were taught, but, someone else in their life (an adult sociopath) undid what they were
taught/learned without the parent realizing what happened. So, the origin of socio-pathology is not always poor parenting, although that's the most
common reason along with regular alcohol and/or drug abuse before the brain fully developed somewhere around age 25.
A conscience is what prevents us from causing harm. If one doesn't have a conscience they are free to do anything ... and I mean anything. Since
'like attracts like' they're attracted to one another like magnets ... hence the mob mentality. But, not all sociopaths have a mob mentality. Some
are low-life's who lie low.
Unbelievably, many adults are sociopaths ... not just kids. They are the people who are irrational, selfish, greedy, entitlement troublemakers. Many
families have at least one -- the shallow person who has no substance and is all about image -- behind closed doors they are evil.
Some kids never outgrow this emotional disorder. Heavy or regular alcohol use and/or drug-abuse during the teen years and into the early 20's (when
the brain is still developing/growing) will always prevent the part of the brain from properly developing.
So, if a person rarely or never uses drugs/drinks before the brain is fully developed in their mid-20's, they stand a really good chance of becoming
compassionate, intelligent and a contributing member of society. Drinking and drug use once the brain has already fully developed (after the age of
25/26) the damage is minimal or non-existent. But, before the mid-20's when the brain is still developing, the damage is quite extensive.
If the part of the brain that controls emotion and rational thought doesn't fully develop properly by the time a person reaches their mid-20's,
whether it's due to alcohol/drug abuse or living in dysfunctional, negative environments and/or when other sociopaths are influential in the child's
life -- (friends, teachers, relatives, ex-spouses etc.) the individual doesn't emotionally mature or develop properly and many become as
unpredictable as a wild animal ... regardless of their skin color. Sociopaths get worse with age, not better.
