"Cops in America are heavily armed and trained to be bullies, routinely hurting people. After a number of mistakes committed by SWAT teams breaking into the wrong home of citizens and constant confrontations with people, are police overstepping their boundaries? Former Reagan Administration advisor Paul Craig Roberts says people who are attracted to police forces are bullies and sociopaths."
When psychopaths think about other people’s suffering, areas in their brain necessary for empathy and concern fail to activate and connect to other regions, such as those involved in affective processing and decision-making. Instead, they showed increase activation in the ventral striatum – the area known to be involved in feelings of pleasure.
A new study published in the journal Frontiers in Human Neuroscience involved the fMRI scans of 40 individuals who suffer from low, medium or high psycopathy – a personality disorder characterised by lack of empathy and remorse, manipulation, glibness and callousness. This mental illness is more common than people realise. Research carried out in England in 2010 suggests that there is one psychopath in every 2,000 people.

A new, riveting study from the University of Chicago, published in JAMA Psychiatry, has shown that people with psychopathy—who lack empathy, are likely to engage in criminal behavior and who are much more likely to be violent—have abnormal brain function.
Researchers examined 80 prisoners in a U.S. correctional facility with “functional MRI,” which shows brain activity, by measuring things like blood flow and oxygen use by brain cells.
They showed them pictures in which people were being attacked or were obviously in pain. And, for the prisoners with high levels of psychopathy, less than normal activity was found in a critical part of their brains linked to emotion—called the amygdala.
