The Sociopath is one who is affected with a personality disorder marked by
aggressive, antisocial behavior. In a world full of fears, perhaps the worst one a human being
should have is that to be afraid of his fellow man. The human that should be most feared is the
one that has Anti-Social Personality Disorder or in laymen’s terms the sociopath. The sociopath
is probably the most deviant mind that exists and treatment is not very successful because there is
not a cure or drug to control it. The solution in my mind to control the problem of sociopaths is

What makes a Sociopath
The sociopath is a combination of other mental illnesses that are incurred in childhood as
a result of heredity, trauma and the lack of emotional development. The lack of moral or

alcohol to facilitate the violent behavior. The violence in many cases is the result of

moral development lets the person feel no guilt or pain for what they did and quite possibly feel
great about their actions. A sociopath has little self regard for themselves and pays little attention
to their own personal safety when picking fights. Quite often they will be outsized and get hurt.
Some sociopaths are non-violent and stay out of prison by doing small crimes like swindling and
insurance fraud. It is possible that a sociopath will come from a normal home but their are more
