Readin’ junk so you dont have to #8366

So there’s an article about using neuroscientific evidence to mitigate sentencing of criminals who are diagnosed as psychopaths, by a law professor, specializing in criminal law who has a LLM from Columbia. Great. So, I was going to toss a link and note the usual discrepancies I found within the paper. But swear to god, I feel like law reviews rarely make the distinction between clinical psychopaths and those having psychopathic traits, which leaves a lot of room to argue whatever point they are making. The current research is such that it’s imperative to make these clarifications, especially when talking about criminal offenders since the majority of psychopaths aren’t violent nor criminal.  I’m just gonna keep truckin with my spectrum theory, thanks.
