It is time to note the difference between a psychopath and a psychotic.
A person with an antisocial personality disorder, manifested in aggressive, perverted, criminal, or amoral behavior without empathy or remorse.
Psychopaths tend to lack normal human emotions such as guilt. They are also often highly intelligent and skilled at manipulating others.
Also, psychopaths seem to appear normal. You would probably never guess there was something wrong with them.
Note, not all psychopaths are serial killers.
Ted Bundy was a psychopath, but Richard Chase was a psychotic.
A person who knows the difference between right and wrong, but doesn't give a damn. Shows no morality and no emotions towards others, including love, guilt or hatred. Would happily destroy anything or anyone merely for personal pleasure.

Generally an intelligent, heterosexual, socially concerned male with adequate amounts of male hormone but who's sadly been hit with the ugly stick at birth. They go through most of their adolescents and young adulthood severley tormented, discriminated and rejected by both sexes because of personal appearance flaws, but its the female rejection which would later demonize them forever. Then from about ages 25+ these somewhat psychologically damaged and bitter individuals begin to despise all human rights and wrongs especially the 'asthetic law' which places the ugly away from the goodlooking. The end result being a sexually frustrated, deprived lonely individual whos only en-route to eden and out of depression is to go on a ballistic rampage for nothing more than self gratifcation, revenge and power.
