Defense: Ohio Kidnapper Fits Profile of Sociopath
CLEVELAND August 19, 2013 (AP)

The lawyers who defended a Cleveland man who held three women captive for a decade say their client clearly fits the profile of sociopathic disorder and that they hope researchers study him for clues that could be used to stop other predators.

Attorneys Craig Weintraub and Jaye Schlachet told the Cleveland Jewish News in a wide-ranging interview that while the public can easily label Ariel Castro a monster and evil, studies must be conducted to determine whether his issue is genetic, organic or “limited simply to mental health.”

Castro admitted to kidnapping and repeatedly raping the women until they escaped his home in May. He has was sentenced this month to life in prison plus 1,000 years and during his sentencing attributed his “sickness” to an addiction to pornography and sexual abuse he himself suffered as a child.

But, Weintraub said, “there are a lot of people walking the streets who were victims of sexual abuse and addicted to pornography who aren’t kidnapping women off the streets, holding them hostage for 10 years and terrorizing them.

“A lot of people don’t do that. They get help. For whatever reason, he lacked the insight to get help, or desire, which exacerbated his mental health issues.”….

Jimmy Savile abuse payouts: 120 victims of paedophile presenter to receive average of £33,000 from BBC     By Tom Pettifor
21 Aug 2013

The BBC is expected to pay out around £4million – less than the £4.1million the broadcaster gave its executive board in 12 months

The BBC is expected to pay out around £4million to 120 of paedophile presenter Jimmy Savile’s alleged victims.

It works out at an average of £33,000 per person – but is less than the £4.1million the broadcaster gave its executive board in 12 months.

The level of compensation is expected to be agreed towards the end of the year when former high court judge Dame Janet Smith, 71, publishes the findings of her probe into the “culture and practices” at the BBC during the Savile era.

The review has uncovered two more alleged suspects linked to the pervert, who died aged 84 in 2011.

Solicitor Alan Collins, whose firm Pannone represents a number of victims, said: “Many have suffered substantial damage because of the sexual abuse they were subjected to by the now disgraced Jimmy Savile and to all right thinking people they should come first.”

He added: “To think that any compensation they receive would be a fraction of that paid to executives in the wake of the scandal seems manifestly unjust.”

He confirmed he is still being contacted by alleged Savile victims….

About 40 of the Savile abuse claimants were quizzed in detail about what allegedly happened to them while giving evidence in Dame Janet’s review.She heard allegations that women were abused by Savile on BBC premises or in outside broadcast vehicles while other staff were present….

The police watchdog has been blasted for probing just one force out of nine accused of failing to investigate Jimmy Savile.

So far only the West Yorkshire force has referred itself to the Independent Police Complaints Commission.

Now forces in Surrey, Sussex, Thames Valley, Lancashire, Greater Manchester, Cheshire, North Yorkshire and the Met have been asked to explain why they did not do the same.

A Savile victim said last night: “The police shouldn’t be allowed to get away with it….

Brain – Psychopaths, C.I.A. Data Show 14-Year Project On Controlling Behavior

April 28, 2012 Comments Off on Brain – Psychopaths, C.I.A. Data Show 14-Year Project On Controlling Behavior

Y! Big Story: What the brain tells us By Vera H-C Chan 4/28/12

….Finding how to stop extreme behavior. Thanks to crime literature and serial killer movies, Americans are aware of many different “-paths”: sociopath, psychopath, and antisocial personality disorder. What has been a raging debate is if one is doomed to that diagnosis and basically lifetime incarceration, or if there’s a window of intervention. One researcher went on a roadtrip into the heart of darkness: Using a mobile MRI unit, a University of New Mexico associate professor of psychology took a snapshot of 2,000 inmate volunteers.

He found that compared to the average offender, 60 percent of psychopaths re-offend within the next 200 days. Maximum-security juveniles showed a similar pattern: 68 percent of individuals who were at high risk for psychopathy re-offended.

Using images of the brain, [Kent] Kiehl said he could predict psychopathy as well as one can with clinical error. (April 23, Duke (University) Research Blog)

Among preliminary findings, Kiehl zeroed in on the interaction with a gene (MAOA) and a “stressful” upbringing and that treatment like group therapy actually ends in “violent failure” among adults. For juveniles, intervention’s a different story and can show a 50% reduction in violent recidivism.

“We have a problem in the United States: We incarcerate a lot of people,” he said. “We incarcerate more per capita than any other country. It’s expensive—it costs $2.34 trillion per year, which is about the same as the annual estimate for all health care [in the country].” (April 23, Duke (University) Research Blog)

C.I.A. Data Show 14-Year Project On Controlling Human Behavior; Data From C.I.A. Show Project on Human Behavior

By NICHOLAS M. HORROCK Special to The New York Times July 21, 1977
WASHINGTON, July 20 The Central Intelligence Agency conducted a 14-year program to find ways to “control human behavior” through the use of chemical, biological and radiological material, according to agency documents made public today by John Marks, a freelance journalist….

Marks: “To be sure, drugs were a part of it, ” he said, ” but so were such other techniques as electric shock, radiation, ultrasonics, psychosurgery, psychology and incapacitating agents, all of which were referred to in documents I have received.”….

According to Mr. Marks’s documents and an earlier Senate investigation, the C.I.A. conducted secret medical experiments from 1949 through 1963 under the code names Bluebird, Artichoke, MK Ultra and MK Delta. The C.I.A. inspector general’s report in 1963 described the program as the “research and development of chemical, biological and radiological materials capable of employment in clandestine operations to control human behavior.”
