    The terms “sociopath” and “psychopath” are essentially identical.

    That worries me, with nothing to back it up. There are similarities between sociopaths and psychopaths as much as there are differences and I don't think a flippant comment like that helps general understanding at all.

    "Psychopaths are estimated to make up 1 percent of the population but constitute roughly 15 to 25 percent of the offenders in prison and are responsible for a disproportionate number of brutal crimes and murders."

    Then they have not caught enough. Is that the premise?

      Psychopathy is not illegal so there's no "not caught enough." A person with a mental illness can perfectly fit in with society and to suggest psychopathy can only be criminal is incredibly damaging to understanding and accepting mental illness.

        "Mark Dadds, a psychologist at the University of New South Wales who studies antisocial behavior in children, acknowledges that “no one is comfortable labeling a 5-year-old a psychopath.” But, he says, ignoring these traits may be worse"

        This sounds like "catching" to me, hence the question on premise.
