Ariel Garcia

In light of the horrific Ariel Castro case, the public clearly needs info on the characteristics and methods of sociopaths. They first slander their victim so they are a pariah in the community. Sociopaths can be charismatic which then enables them to ensnare others to further spread the slander, stalk and harass the victim. However, these helpers become victims themselves, doing the bidding for the sociopath, engaging in creepy and illegal actions. The helpers may believe that they are involved in acts of social justice preying on the so-called bad person.
The key to stopping sociopaths is watching out for them and avoiding them. That's why I wish the schools and universities would print leaflets and the media, etc. would inform the public.

Glibness and Superficial Charm
Manipulative and Conning
They never recognize the rights of others.
They appear to be charming, yet are covertly hostile and domineering, seeing their victim as merely an instrument to be used.
Grandiose Sense of Self
Feels entitled to certain things as "their right."
Pathological Lying
No shame or Guilt
Does not see others around them as people, but only as targets and opportunities.
Callousness/Lack of Empathy
Believe they are all-powerful,no sense of personal boundaries, no concern for their impact on others.
"Get by" by conning others.
Does not accept blame themselves, but blames others, even for acts they obviously committed.
Parasitic Lifestyle

The above traits are based on the psychopathy checklists of H. Cleckley and R. Hare.)
