Sociopath/psychopath in sheep's clothing.

Walls of Shame Menu Page > This 'Wall of Shame - Individuals' page

! Note !
More individuals (sociopaths/psychopaths) may be added,
if I ever take time from other projects to update this page.

Sections below:


This page gives a list of 'objects' deserving of scorn and/or incarceration --- and, in many cases, deserving of criminal prosecution, to the maximum extent of the law. The 'objects' here are individuals, most of whom could be classified as sociopaths or psychopaths.

The 'objects' of shame are listed on this page in alphabetical order --- by the person's last name.

Many candidates for this page are actually on other Wall-of-Shame pages at this site --- the Walls-of-Shame for Business or Politics or Medicine or Media or Religion.

So scan those pages for more examples of sociopaths and psychopaths.

This page is for sociopaths/psychopaths that do not fall into those other categories --- that is, for people who have not found a hiding place in those societal 'employment areas'.

Testing for Sociopathy/Psychopathy   (an under-developed 'amygdala'?)

Back around 2007 or 2008, I saw a documentary on one of the cable channels (the Discovery channel or the Learning Channel or whatever) that talked about how there seems to be a correlation between sociopathic and psychopathic behavior and the size or connectivity of a part of the brain called the amygdala (two peanut/cashew/almond-sized bodies).

There have been many research articles on this subject in the 2005-2015 time frame. For example, a blog page article (at neurologicalcorrelates.com, circa 2009) talks about the amygdala and psychopaths' brain matter. Some quotes follow.

I would just like to point out that if medical/physiological/psychological technologists ever find a way to determine who is quite likely to be or become a sociopath or psychopath --- and if it is deemed highly advisable to isolate them from the rest of society, then the 'U.S. Congress' had better take retirement in a foreign country --- because a lot of those people are going to be highly restricted in a manner not suited to their egos nor suited to the lives they have become accustomed to.

Others who might want to 'self-deport': 'medical professionals' who are scamming the health system (like Martin Shkreli) --- many 'business' men/women, on Wall Street and on Main Street (like Lloyd Blankfein and John Stumpf) --- 'religious orators' (like Peter Popoff) --- 'media' people (like Rupert Murdoch and Roger Ailes and Bill O'Reilly).

Lucky for these people, many of the conclusions from amygdala studies seem to be almost contradictory and many studies seem to be poorly performed (in the 2005-2015 time frame).

But when enough data is collected to 'clarify the waters', there may be a chance to determine those individuals who are pre-disposed to sociopathic / psychopathic behavior.


For further info on the amygdala and sociopathy and psychopathy:

If you want to know a way to distinguish sociopathy from psychopathy:

In a work on psychopathy by Dr. Robert Hare, he makes a distinction between the two based on causation. He claims that psychopaths have a physiological abnormality which is the heart of their problem, whereas sociopaths do not.

Sociopathy is described as a maladaptive reaction to a brutal social environment early in life.

    This seems to suggest that a person with BOTH the physiological abnormality and the brutal social environment early in life is going to be a 'hot mess'.

Organization of this page

This page is divided into two main sections: 'PERPETRATORS LISTS' and 'PERPETRATOR TYPES'.

Cases of 'offenses' associated with a particular individual will be recorded, in the 'PERPETRATORS LIST' below, by individual's name --- in order by last name.

    NOTE that it would probably be instructive to have detailed info on the childhood of these 'individuals' --- including the way their parents raised them (and the psychological and genomic history of the parents).

'Offenses' (or bad outcomes --- such as actions or statistics of a psychopathic or sociopathic type) are noted in the 'PERPETRATOR TYPES' section further below --- under a suitable name --- such as 'Pedophile' or 'Serial Killer' or 'Spammer' --- with names presented in alphabetical order.

How to navigate this page

You can use an option like 'Find in This Page ...' of your web browser to search for key words, such as 'pedophile' or 'criminal' or 'sociopath' or 'psychopath' or 'court' or 'trial'.

Or you can simply scroll down this page to find 'instances' of interest.

Bundy, Ted (serial killer)

Theodore Robert Bundy (1946 - 1989) was an American serial killer, kidnapper, rapist, burglar, and necrophile who assaulted and murdered numerous young women and girls during the 1970s, and possibly earlier.

Shortly before his execution -- after more than a decade of denials -- he confessed to 30 homicides committed in seven states between 1974 and 1978.

Dahmer, Jeffrey (serial killer)

Jeffrey Lionel Dahmer (1960 - 1994), also known as the 'Milwaukee Cannibal', was an American serial killer and sex offender, who committed the rape, murder, and dismemberment of seventeen men and boys between 1978 and 1991.

Many of his later murders involved necrophilia, cannibalism, and the permanent preservation of body parts -- typically all or part of the skeletal structure.

Convicted of fifteen of the sixteen murders he had committed in Wisconsin, Dahmer was sentenced to fifteen terms of life imprisonment on February 15, 1992.

Christopher Scarver -- who fatally beat the serial killer and another inmate in 1994 -- said he grew to despise Dahmer because he would fashion severed limbs out of prison food to taunt the other inmates. He'd drizzle on packets of ketchup as blood. "He crossed the line with some people -- prisoners, prison staff. Some people who are in prison are repentant -- but he was not one of them."

Gacy, John Wayne (serial killer)

John Wayne Gacy Jr. (1942 - 1994) was an American serial killer and rapist. He sexually assaulted, tortured and murdered at least 33 teenage boys and young men between 1972 and 1978 in Cook County, Illinois.

All of Gacy's known murders were committed inside his Norwood Park ranch house. His victims were typically lured to his address by force or deception, and all but one of his victims were murdered by either asphyxiation or strangulation with a makeshift tourniquet. His first victim was stabbed to death.

Gacy buried 26 of his victims in the crawl space of his home. Three other victims were buried elsewhere on his property, while th bodies of his last four known victims were discarded in the Des Plaines River.

Convicted of 33 murders, Gacy was sentenced to death on March 13, 1980 for 12 of those killings. He spent 14 years on death row before he was finally executed by lethal injection at Stateville Correctional Center on May 10, 1994.

Gacy became known as the "Killer Clown" because of his charitable services at fundraising events, parades, and children's parties where he would dress as "Pogo the Clown", a character he devised himself.

Sandusky, Jerry (pedophile, football coach)

Jerry Sandusky was accused by more than 40 boys/men of having 'taken liberties' with them while he was a coach in Ohio --- and while he was administering a 'charity' for young boys, 'The Second Mile'.

I find one thing that he was regularly doing inexcusable and deserving of considerable jail time.

He was regularly taking boys out of school --- without letting the parents know he was doing it. And the schools in his area were allowing him to do it --- allowing him to use the schools as if they were a lending library of human flesh.

    The school administrators who were allowing that to happen should also be serving some jail time.

There are upper level administrators at Penn State University who were also deserving of some jail time. I saw an interview with Graham Spanier, Penn State President at the time. He was unapologetic and seemed as sociopathic as Sandusky. I was glad to see that he was finally convicted of child endangerment, in 2017.

More sociopathic / psychopathic 'individuals' may be added to this 'PERPETRATORS LIST' someday. In the meantime ...

The American Greed TV show is probably a good source for sociopathic / psychopathic individuals who are interested in separating people from their life's savings.

However, many of the 'American Greed' subjects would be candidates for the other Walls-of-Shame pages of this site: Business or Politics or Medicine or Media or Religion.

Searches like the following can reveal many more 'individuals' to add to the list above.

Pedophiles (in general)

The FBI maintains a web page of Sex Offender Registry Websites.

The Department of Justice has a National Sex Offender Public Website (NSOPW).

The various states of the U.S. also have Sex Offender Registry websites.

For further info:

Serial killers (in general)

Wikipedia has many pages of names of male serial killers and a page of names of American female serial killers.

Wikipedia also has a page of names of serial killers by number of victims, with various sub-categories.

For further info:

Spammers (electronic, in general)

While not quite as horrific a threat as a serial killer, spammers have wreaked a lot of havoc on society.

The Department of Justice has a web page on Spam.

The FTC (Federal Trade Commision) also has a web page on Spam

Wikipedia has a long page of info on Email spam, including info on various kinds of spam (example: phishing) and on various anti-spam organizations (examples: SpamCop and Spamhaus).

The Spamhause project has a page of the Top 10 Spammers.
