Abstract

Psychopaths share chilling personality characteristics that make them extremely dangerous and, to date, impossible to cure.The failure to cure or even control them has divided the medical and legal communities, as well as society in general. What do you do with incurable killers? Lock them up and throw away the key, or spend hundreds of thousands of dollars every year to treat them? Some experts believe the federal government should commit funds for more research and provide special facilities to treat psychopathic patients.
