I’ve long thought there are a lot more psychopaths around than people imagine, or that the official figures reveal. As long as things go well they try to remain hidden, knowing they must resemble others to be socially acceptable, but if things go bad they will do what they want, either to survive, or because they enjoy it and figure there will be no repercussions on them for their actions.
My opinion, of course, doesn’t amount to proof and I hope I’m wrong about their numbers, but having been on the receiving end of a number of them during my life I don’t believe I am wrong.

Yosemite Sam: "Oh yeah? Well I speak LOUD! and I carry a BIGGER stick! and I use it, too!" BAM!
