DRD2 A1, DRD4 7-repeat, 5HTTLPR/rs25531, COMPT (or COMT) Met108/158, MAOA-L (corrections welcome).

So, . . .which one, if any of these, is the no fellow-human-feeling, no empathy, no guilt gene, . . .where do full-genetic-dose psychopaths such as Stacey Castor or Michael Swango fall on this (actually they are not full spectrum full dose psychopaths — they did have the capacity to exercise restraint and to strategize, but on the other-humans-are-just-bugs continuum they are full dose)?

Would visitors who find us through an interest in the relationship between psychopaths, cats or other animals please leave comments?

Posted in General with tags , , , , , , , on November 27, 2014 by pathwhisperer

Many come to this site through searches for the relationship between combinations of the above.   I don’t know why.  Please feel free to share any thoughts or experiences — there are no “wrong” observations and PCness is not necessary.  What cat behaviors lead you (and there are many of you) to think that cats are able to recognize psychopaths?  All I have here is one paragraph and some comments.

Unusual search: Can cats sense someone is a sociopath?

This is the first time I’ve ever seen this search.  All I can say, the most extreme female sociopath I’ve ever known said cats and dogs hated her.  Was this just something unique to her or do dogs and cats have some innate sense of fairplay?  Did they recognize her as a rapacious, reptilian-minded predator?  I don’t know.

  • . . . there are both psychopaths and sociopaths that happen to love animals but have no regard for human life. Then there are, some that have no regard for life in general, other than their own.Leaving the article so broad, it’s not necessarily a good idea.

    It’s true to some extent, animals, like some people are a good judge of character but it’s not true for every animal or person. There are some dumb / too trusting people, cats and dogs out there as well.

    Animals, since they tend to have a lot more non audible or visual cues and pay attention to them more often than we do to each others body language, the animals know when they are in danger more often than humans do.

    It also has to do with bio-chemistry too, since animals can smell things most humans cannot, they can tell if someone is a danger to them or not, or they can even smell “fear” and that they are “easy prey”.

    I had a sociopathic friend once who told me she hated animals. She said that her mother-in-law’s cat would sit on her lap when she visited her inlaws. She said she pretended to like the cat’s attention. Later she told me about the stray dog that stayed under her house. Her husband wanted to keep the dog. I think he finally got his way. She then posted a photo of herself holding the dog on a blog. She and her husband are trying to adopt. Isn’t that scary?!!!. I think I’m the only person who knows she’s being a fake.

  • alearner Says:

    yes cats and dogs have something against sociopaths the female sociopath i was with was morbidly afraid of even the smallest dogs.

  • Cats can, but dogs can’t. This is why Female Sociopaths have small dogs. It serves the function of making them look compassionate in the eyes of others.

    They see the dog as an object, not a life. No matter how much they tell you their pet dog is their “baby”, female sociopaths will begin shopping for a replacement dog before the previous dog has died. This is something a human being who loves their pet would never think of doing. Apart from the stress a new dog may cause a dying old dog in the last weeks of its life, this also shows how for all their “my baby!” talk the female sociopath sees the dog as an object with no real love for it. Which is also how they see people.

    Thanks.

To my ex and her criminal cop friends: Get the hell off my phone line

Posted in General with tags , , , , , , , , , on November 25, 2014 by pathwhisperer

Last night once again I heard those sounds that I know to be my ex tapping my phone line, or rather, the cops tapping the line for her.  Of course, as the psychopathic cop said in Training Day, it’s not what you know, it’s what you can prove that counts.

Here’s how it goes.  You go to non-NYPD law enforcement, say the DA’s office.  You say, ‘I think my phone is being tapped — there are unusual sounds and the suspect shows up where I am by surprising coincidence.’  They say, ‘OK, have that verified by the phone company.’  ‘But they work hand in hand with the local police.’  ‘How do you know the police are involved?  Is she living with a police officer?  In any case, only the phone company has the capabilities, we don’t.’

For decades, the NYPD has been unconstitutionally allowed to illegally bug suspects, they just can’t use the information in court.  But they can gather it as they wish.  This really means they can tap anyone they want.  The phone company and their technicians know this full well, essentially becoming their accomplices.

So you call Bell Atlantic/Verizon, ‘Please check my line for taps.’  ‘OK, will do.’  Then the day before the appointment there’s a message on your answering machine saying ‘Hello, this is the telco, with a reminder that you have an appointment tomorrow to check your phone line for taps.’  Shortly, an hour or so later, the line is as clean as a whistle.  There isn’t a whisper of additional noise.  And, of course, nothing is found.  It might as well be a code to tell cops to temporarily clean up their act.  No phone company will ever find a police phone tap.

I once was talking to a technician at a spy shop looking for something that would detect police taps.  He had nothing. He also said, he couldn’t foresee an officer risking his career in such a manner.  I said, if he can’t be caught then what’s the risk, and why would he ever stop?  And to myself I said, particularly a what-me-worry, can’t-possibly-lose psychopathic police officer ever stop.  This case may be the Guinness world record for longest period of phone tapping — over a decade, under two.

For a time, five – eight years, it seemed to be twenty-four/seven, as though someone was living my life with me.  Also a girlfriend of the time even said, ‘I don’t want to sound crazy, but I think my phone may be tapped.’  Then it fell to a few days a week, or once a week, or just a couple times a month.  When I started this series of posts in June the problem disappeared, after being a steady once a week.  In the last couple weeks it seems to be back.

On the other question, ‘How do you know police are involved.’  So I hire the services of an database private eye.  There is no obvious link.  Unfortunately the results are left on my answering machine, against my request.  (If you don’t give contact info to private eyes they get nervous about your motives.  So I gave them contact info, but requested that they not use it.  Oh well.  Private detectives are also annoying in another way:  a psychopathic detective will NEVER find any information on a psychopath — which is amazing.)

In NYC, there is no designed mechanism to complain about the local police.  Any complaints will be forwarded to the local precinct.  Early in the process, I filed a complaint in another precinct concerning 20-30 calls a day to my answering machine.  I was told that the complaint couldn’t get a file number until it was forwarded to the home precinct, which it was, the report then disappeared as did the calls.

Moreover the DA’s office has a conflict of interest.  Police cooperation is necessary for their cases.  It is against their interest to act on an anonymous citizen’s complaint.

New York City needs an independent prosecutor for police misconduct or an independent investigatory body with subpoena powers and the power to appoint temporary prosecutors.

Search: my sociopathic husband is trying to have me committed

You’ve got to go on the offensive.  In the United State, the truth is its own defense.  Label him a sociopath.  Demand he submit to a court ordered brain scan (plus a DNA sample).

Perhaps the most useful test would be for the incomplete brain wall, the cavum septum pellucidum (I’m thinking out loud here, not offering this as expert opinion).  We need to find out which test is the best for courtrooms, one that would give a yes/no answer and that would be easily visible to an informed layman in side by side scans.  Anybody know?  Adrian Raine’s tests are mentioned in these posts, http://pathwhisperer.wordpress.com/2011/11/29/criminal-minds-will-testing-the-brain-even-before-birth-separate-the-good-seeds-from-the-bad/, http://pathwhisperer.wordpress.com/2011/09/20/post-redux-are-saps-socially-adept-psychopaths-real/.  More, Abnormal Brain Region Characterizes Those With Psychopathy, Habitual Liar Brains Look Different On Scans, and www.futurepundit.com/archives/001998.html.  Other tests also, http://pathwhisperer.wordpress.com/?s=brain+scan.

Good luck.

This ‘snake-hearted’ era — Reginald Tasker’s monologue from The Bad Seed

Posted in General with tags , , , , , , , , , on November 8, 2014 by pathwhisperer
. . . yet sometimes I wonder whether these malignant brutes may not be the mutation that survives on this planet in this age.  This age of technology and murder-for-empire.  Maybe the softies will have to go, and the snake-hearted will inherit the Earth.  Now, I’m betting on the democracies.  But we’re living in an age of murder.  In all history, there have never been so many people murdered as in our century.  Add up all the murders from the beginning of history to 1900, and then add the murders after 1900, and our century wins.  All alone . . . http://www.theatreink.net/shows/2013/bad%20seed/bspacket.pdf

Sadly this was written in the 1950sI’m sure the authors, William March (the novel) and Maxwell Anderson (the play), thought knowledge of psychopathy would spread quickly in the modern age.  As did Hervey Cleckley, Mask of Sanity, and Mary Astor, The Incredible Charlie Carewe, Mary Astor’s “The Incredible Charlie Carewe”, no doubt.  I don’t know what went wrong.

FOILed by Jonathan David

Posted in General with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 4, 2014 by pathwhisperer

Why does this person still have a job?  I wrote a request for all records pertaining to myself under the New York FOIL law and have received two woefully incomplete (obviously and ridiculously incomplete) responses.  The second response was an appeal from the first response.  Jonathon David now informs me that my only recourse left is to bring a Article 78 proceeding in court, i.e., to sue them.   So, . . . the NYPD has to be forced to obey the law?  When the law is very clear?  This apparently happens all the time (see articles referenced below).  Why haven’t the courts slapped them down.  Courts usually don’t like being bothered with matters that could and should have been handled adminstratively.

Whenever there is a problem of a culture gone bad in an organization, the first targets are logically the exemplars, the public standard bearers of that faulty culture.  Here in NYC we have a police culture of arrogance and individuals seemingly believing that not only are they above the law, that they are the law.  Jonathan David and his office carries out that behavior in broad daylight.  He should be fired and the office reorganized.

Please don’t think this is my personal opinion/problem.  The NYPD Legal Dept. is quite famous.  Amazingly they claimed the Freedom of Information Law didn’t apply to the FOIL process itself.  .  .  .  Huh???

From The Village Voice’s The NYPD’s a Little Confused About How the Freedom of Information Law Works:

Since late last year, MuckRock reporter Shawn Musgrave had been trying to get the NYPD to release “any manual, training reference, or other guide” explaining how the department processes freedom of information requests. The cops had refused the request though, arguing — with a deeply symbolic bit of circular logic — that the freedom of information procedures themselves weren’t subject to New York’s Freedom of Information Law.

. . . . NYPD received jabs from outlets far and wide because, really, dashing off a post about the whole FOIL mobius strip was too good to pass up. FOIL policies exempt from FOIL? Blog and blog.

While it’s unusual for FOIL officers to talk publicly about individual requests, Jonathan David, the attorney charged with answering Musgrave’s letters, tells the Voice the whole thing was really a misunderstanding. In his view, the patrol guide, which contains pretty limited FOIL discussion, didn’t qualify as a training manual.

http://blogs.villagevoice.com/runninscared/2014/07/the_nypds_a_little_confused_about_how_the_freedom_of_information_law_works.php

Come on.  Our tax money goes to these people?  “Training manual”?  Nice little trick, selective memory.

NYPD Rejects Freedom Of Information Law Request For Their Freedom Of Information Law Handbook

. . . But this latest rejection is for the exact guidelines that spell out which records must be released and which can be withheld from the public. Few documents are better suited for release under the Freedom of Information Law than a freedom of information handbook.  http://gothamist.com/2014/03/21/nypd_transparency.php

NYPD has a freedom of information handbook, after all

The NYPD does, in fact, have a Freedom of Information Law guide. Someone tell its Freedom of Information Law unit, which for months has denied emphatically that any such document exists.  https://www.muckrock.com/news/archives/2014/jul/02/nypd-has-freedom-information-handbook-after-all/

I’m quite aware that many of my readers disagree/disapprove of my listen-to-the-force-luke-skywalker/let your subconscious be your guide approach to recognizing psychopathy.  Thinking patterns, psychopathic arrogance and  types of lies are also avenues into recognizing psychopaths, and are more objective.  Psychopaths like to turn situations on their head — such as, FOILs don’t apply to FOILs.  That’s also a pre-logical thinking pattern, another trait of psychopaths.  It is also very arrogant.  If my services had been hired, I would have started with those NYPD positions that have the capability of protecting other psychopaths within the force.

Back to my situation, my original request asked that the psychopathic NYPD police officer (identified by his DPL/DPA license plate numbers which I had learned through their harassment of me over the years) I have referenced elsewhere not be allowed to play a part in deciding what to release or not.  (See, To the de Blasio administration, I hereby volunteer to identify NYPD whiteshirt psychopaths, gratis, Is there a ‘Training Day’ crew in the NYPD and are they targetting me?, and other posts tagged NYPD.)   The first response included only a traffic ticket and a complaint that I had filed that didn’t involve him or my ex.  Clever, very clever.  He couldn’t have done better if he had chosen himself.  While the complaint didn’t involve them, at the time I though it might and thus I referenced other complaints I had made about telephone harassment.  Obviously these should have been, and were included in the second response.  However the source/telephone numbers of that harassment was not included (which a detective had in fact given me originally, so they do have them).

Also unincluded were files regarding the time I was served by the police and my ex with papers to appear at mediation, or complaints that she mentioned having filed prior to that mediation (which I was not aware of her having done).  It is patently ridiculous that these not be included (non essential material could be redacted of course).  I’m not that interested in this material, these events were some 20 years ago, but obviously any complete file would include them.  Further there was nothing indicating why extremely hostile (and apparently disgusted??) auxiliary cops were posted at my corner and armed cops at the therapists’ corner for weeks in 2011.  Nor was there anything referencing any political activism on my part.

My goal with the FOIL was hopefully to find out the character assassination/whispering campaign that my ex and her cop friends seem to be the font of.  It is taken very seriously, scares people and has caused many to turn their face to the wall rather than give a friendly hello as they had done for years (inducing ‘refusal to associate’ is a crime).  More later.
