    [font=&quot]Wow - This is soooooooooo Raven![/font]

    [font=&quot]Profile of a Sociopath

    A number of mind-manipulating cult leaders may exhibit many of the behavioral characteristics of a sociopath--an outstanding ability to charm and seduce followers. Since they appear apparently normal, they are not easily recognizable as deviant or disturbed. Although only a trained professional can make a diagnosis, it is important to be able to recognize the personality type in order to avoid further abuse. These traits also apply to a one-on-one cultic relationship.

    1. Glibness/Superficial Charm
    Language can be used without effort by them to confuse and convince their audience. Captivating storytellers that exude self-confidence, they can spin a web that intrigues others. Since they are persuasive, they have the capacity to destroy their critics verbally or emotionally.

    2. Manipulative and Conning
    They never recognize the rights of others and see their self-serving behaviors permissible. They appear to be charming, yet are covertly hostile and domineering, seeing their victim as merely an instrument to be used. They dominate and humiliate their victims.

    3. Grandiose Sense of Self
    Feels entitled to certain things as "their right." Craves adulation and attendance. Must be the center of attention with their own fantasies as the "spokesman for God," "enlightened," "leader of humankind," etc. Creates an us-versus-them mentality

    4. Pathological Lying
    Has no problem lying coolly and easily and it is almost impossible for them to be truthful on a consistent basis. Can create, and get caught up in, a complex belief about their own powers and abilities. Extremely convincing and able to pass lie detector tests.

    5. Lack of Remorse, Shame or Guilt
    A deep seated rage, which is split off and repressed, is at their core. Does not see others around them as people, but only as targets and opportunities. Instead of friends, they have victims and accomplices who end up as victims. The end always justifies the means and they let nothing stand in their way.

    6. Shallow Emotions
    When they show what seems to be warmth, joy, love and compassion, it is more feigned than experienced and serves an ulterior motive. Outraged by insignificant matters, yet remaining unmoved and cold by what would upset a normal person. Since they are not genuine, neither are their promises.

    7. Incapacity for Love
    While they talk about "God's love" they are unable to give or receive it. Since they do not believe in the genuineness of their followers' love, they are very harsh in testing it from their devotees and expect them to feel guilt for their failings. Expects unconditional surrender.

    8. Need for Stimulation
    Living on the edge, yet testing the beliefs of their followers with bizarre rules, punishments and behaviors. Verbal outbursts and physical punishments are normal.

    9. Callousness/Lack of Empathy
    Unable to empathize with the pain of their victims, having only contempt for others' feelings of distress and readily taking advantage of them. Their skills are used to exploit, abuse and exert power. Since the follower cannot believe their leader would callously hurt them, they rationalize the behavior as necessary for their (or the group's) own "good" and deny the abuse. When devotees become aware of the exploitation it feels like a "spiritual rape" to them.

    10. Poor Behavioral Controls/Impulsive Nature
    Rage and abuse, alternating with small expressions of love and approval produce an addictive cycle for abuser and abused, as well as creating hopelessness in the victim. Believe they are all-powerful, all-knowing, entitled to every wish, no sense of personal boundaries, no concern for their impact on others. The followers only see them as near perfect.

    11. Early Behavior Problems/Juvenile Delinquency
    Usually has a history of behavioral and academic difficulties, yet "gets by" by conning others. Problems in making and keeping friends; aberrant behaviors such as cruelty to people or animals, stealing, etc.

    12. Irresponsibility/Unreliability
    Not concerned about wrecking others' lives and dreams. Oblivious or indifferent to the devastation they cause. Does not accept blame themselves, but blame their followers or others outside their group. Blame reinforces passivity and obedience and produces guilt, shame, terror and conformity in the followers.

    13. Promiscuous Sexual Behavior/Infidelity
    Totalist leaders frequently practice promiscuity, child sexual abuse, rape and sexual acting out of all sorts. This is usually kept hidden from all but the inner circle. Stringent sexual control of their followers, such as forced breakups and divorces, removal of children from parents, rules for dating, etc.

    14. Lack of Realistic Life Plan/Parasitic Lifestyle
    Tends to move around a lot or makes all encompassing promises for the future. Many groups claim as their goal world-domination or other utopian promises. Great contrast between the leader's opulent lifestyle and the followers' impoverishment. Support by gifts and donations from the followers who are pressured to give through fear and guilt. Highly sensitive to their own pain and health.

    15. Criminal or Entrepreneurial Versatility
    Changes their image and that of the group as needed to avoid prosecution and to increase income and to recruit a range of members. Is able to adapt or relocate as needed to preserve the group. Can resurface later with a new name, a new front group and a new twist on the scam.

    Other Related Qualities:

    1. Contemptuous of those who seek to understand them

    2. Does not perceive that anything is wrong with them

    3. Authoritarian

    4. Secretive

    5. Paranoid

    6. Only rarely in difficulty with the law, but seeks out situations where their tyrannical behavior will be tolerated, condoned, or admired

    7. Conventional appearance

    8. Goal of enslavement of their victim(s)

    9. Exercises despotic control over every aspect of the victim's life

    10. Has an emotional need to justify their crimes and therefore needs their victim's affirmation (respect, gratitude and love)

    11. Ultimate goal is the creation of a willing victim

    12. Incapable of real human attachment to another

    13. Unable to feel remorse or guilt

    14. Extreme narcissism and grandiose

    15. May state readily that their goal is to rule the world

    The above traits are based on the psychopathy checklists of H. Cleckley and R. Hare. In the 1830's this disorder was called "moral insanity." By 1900 it was changed to "psychopathic personality." More recently it has been termed "antisocial personality disorder."

    The beautiful thing about Sociopaths is that they DON'T need psychological help (so they say) there is NOTHING wrong with them. They are as close to perfect as they could be. They will charm you, point out their flaws (but not too harshly, just enough to make you think they are human), but that's just part of their charm, they honestly believe they are lying to you when they point out their flaws![/font]

    LOL - Well, I'm pretty nuts, I am sure that has been well established by my postings/rantings here.

    We all can be a little out there, but since it asks Do You Know a Psychopath? I took the test based on what I knew of the Bird. My interest is if you know the bird, take the test and be honest with your answers.

    He does not see anything wrong with anything he does. He would never see himself in those statements. But those of us who know him, know better. He is messed up in the head!

    THE PSYCHOPATH NEXT DOOR...
    Psychopath. We hear the word and images of Bernardo, Manson and Dahmer pop into our heads; no doubt Ted Bundy too. But they’re the bottom of the barrel – most of the two million psychopaths in North America aren’t murderers. They’re our friends, lovers and co-workers. They’re outgoing and persuasive, dazzling you with charm and flattery. Often you aren’t even aware they’ve taken you for a ride – until it’s too late.

    Psychopaths exhibit a Jekyll and Hyde personality. “They play a part so they can get what they want,” says Dr. Sheila Willson, a Toronto psychologist who has helped victims of psychopaths. The guy who showers a woman with excessive attention is much more capable of getting her to lend him money, and to put up with him when he strays. The new employee who gains her co-workers’ trust has more access to their chequebooks. And so on. Psychopaths have no conscience and their only goal is self-gratification. Many of us have been their victims – at work, through friendships or relationships – and not one of us can say, “a psychopath could never fool me.”

    Think you can spot one? Think again. In general, psychopaths aren’t the product of broken homes or the casualties of a materialistic society. Rather they come from all walks of life and there is little evidence that their upbringing affects them. Elements of a psychopath’s personality first become evident at a very early age, due to biological or genetic factors. Explains Michael Seto, a psychologist at the Centre for Addiction and Mental health in Toronto, by the time that a person hits their late teens, the disorder is almost certainly permanent. Although many clinicians use the terms psychopath and sociopath interchangeably, writes psychopath expert Robert Hare on his book ‘Without Conscience’, a sociopath’s criminal behavior is shaped by social forces and is the result of a dysfunctional environment.

    Psychopaths have only a shallow range of emotions and lack guilt, says Hare. They often see themselves as victims, and lack remorse or the ability to empathize with others. “Psychopaths play on the fact that most of us are trusting and forgiving people,” adds Seto. The warning signs are always there; it’s just difficult to see them because once we trust someone, the friendship becomes a blinder.

    Even lovers get taken for a ride by psychopaths. For a psychopath, a romantic relationship is just another opportunity to find a trusting partner who will buy into the lies. It’s primarily why a psychopath rarely stays in a relationship for the long term, and often is involved with three or four partners at once, says Willson. To a psychopath, everything about a relationship is a game. Willson refers to the movie ‘Sliding Doors’ to illustrate her point. In the film, the main character comes home early after just having been fired from her job. Only moments ago, her boyfriend has let another woman out the front door. But in a matter of minutes he is the attentive and concerned boyfriend, taking her out to dinner and devoting the entire night to comforting her. All the while he’s planning to leave the next day on a trip with the other woman.

    The boyfriend displays typical psychopathic characteristics because he falsely displays deep emotion toward the relationship, says Willson. In reality, he’s less concerned with his girlfriend’s depression than with making sure she’s clueless about the other woman’s existence. In the romance department, psychopaths have an ability to gain your affection quickly, disarming you with words, intriguing you with grandiose plans. If they cheat you’ll forgive them, and one day when they’ve gone too far, they’ll leave you with a broken heart (and an empty wallet). By then they’ll have a new player for their game.

    The problem with their game is that we don’t often play by their rules. Where we might occasionally tell a white lie, a psychopath’s lying is compulsive. Most of us experience some degree of guilt about lying, preventing us from exhibiting such behavior on a regular basis. “Psychopaths don’t discriminate who it is they lie to or cheat,” says Seto. “There’s no distinction between friend, family and sucker.”

    No one wants to be the sucker, so how do we prevent ourselves from becoming close friends or getting into a relationship with a psychopath? It’s really almost impossible, say Seto and Willson. Unfortunately, laments Seto, one way is to become more suspicious and less trusting of others. Our tendency is to forgive when we catch a loved one in a lie. “Psychopaths play on this fact,” he says. “However, I’m certainly not advocating a world where if someone lies once or twice, you never speak to them again.” What you can do is look at how often someone lies and how they react when caught. Psychopaths will lie over and over again, and where other people would sincerely apologize, a psychopath may apologize but won’t stop.

    Psychopaths also tend to switch jobs as frequently as they switch partners, mainly because they don’t have the qualities to maintain a job for the long haul. Their performance is generally erratic, with chronic absences, misuse of company resources and failed commitments. Often they aren’t even qualified for the job and use fake credentials to get it. Seto talks of a patient who would get marketing jobs based on his image; he was a presentable and charming man who layered his conversations with educational and occupational references. But it became evident that the man hadn’t a clue what he was talking about, and was unable to hold down a job.

    How do you make sure you don’t get fooled when you’re hiring someone to baby-sit your child or for any other job? Hire based on reputation and not image, says Willson. Check references thoroughly. Psychopaths tend to give vague and inconsistent replies. Of course the best way to solve this problem would be to cure psychopaths of their ‘illness.’ But there’s no recipe for treating them, say psychiatrists. Today’s traditional methods of psychotherapy (psychoanalysis, group and one-on-one therapy) and drug treatments have failed. Therapy is more likely to work when an individual admits there’s a problem and wants to change. The common problem with psychopaths, says Sets, “Is they don’t see a problem with their behavior.”

    Psychopaths don’t seek therapy willingly, says Seto. Rather, they’re pushed into it by a desperate relative or by a court order. To a psychopath, a therapist is just one more person who must be conned, and the psychopath plays the part right until the therapist is convinced of his or her ‘rehabilitation.’

    Even though we can’t treat psychopaths effectively with therapy, it doesn’t mean we can’t protect ourselves, writes Hare. Willson agrees, citing the most important factor in keeping psychopaths at bay is to know your vulnerabilities. We need to “realize our own potential and maximize our strengths” so that our insecurities don’t overcome us. Because, she says, a psychopath is a chameleon who becomes “an image of what you haven’t done for yourself.” Over time, she says, “their appearance of perfection will begin to crack,” but by that time you will have been emotionally and perhaps financially scathed. There comes a time when you realize there’s no point in searching for answers; the only thing is to move on.

    Thanks WV171 - Raven's quite on the loud and obnoxious side. He likes to be noticed and makes sure he is noticed.

    I find it quite interesting that he's gone so quiet lately.

    Wonder what he did on the anniversary of his wife's murder?

    Was he out playing the :boohoo: to get sympathy, was he at the Church looking for handouts, or was he out planning another con. I'm betting he was spending his day lying and denying like he usually does.

    Yes, Raven is obviously a textbook sociopath and very likely killed Janet.
    Unfortunatly, unless he tells someone he actually did it and they come forward to testify, he walks. There is simply not enough solid CE to build a compelling case beyond a resonable doubt...IMO.

    You are right Raven is a textbook sociopath. I believe 100% that Raven killed Janet and their unborn child.

    Raven will never confess. If it came to a confession and sparing his life, I doubt he would confess. He's a sociopath and cares more about what other's think of him. Lying and Denying are part of his nature and after four years we know this POS has no conscience.

    I believe there is plenty of evidence to build a compelling case beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law. Perhaps the issue is with the case not being compelling to the State. All cases are up the discretion of the DA's office. Nifong was sworn into office the day after Janet was murder. If Nifong wasn't golfing, fund raising and campaigning on the clock, and put any sort of work on this case perhaps we wouldn't be sitting here 4 years later.

    Politics, backlogs and campaigning

    Durham, N.C. — More than 19,000 warrants in Durham County will go unserved after the District Attorney's Office threw them out.
    Authorities said some were too old and others weren't worth pursuing because the crimes were minor.

    Durham had a backlog of more than 60,000 unserved warrants dating to 1977, and city and county officials have created a central office and computer system to help serving warrants.

    Money and the political issues in Durham are what caused this case to stall. The State of North Carolina needs to get their act together and designate more funding to get these guys off the street.

    Speaking of State of NC, if the Medical Examiner showed up at the scene of the crime and there was more $$ designated to funding that office perhaps this case would have been resolved by now. Same ME on Janet's case was the one that handled Michelle Young's case.

    15 minutes to kill? It is my firm belief that Janet was murdered BEFORE Raven went to soccer. That's what happens when you peform an autopsy nearly 48 hours AFTER a murder!

    I agree if the District Attorney's office took it would be considered a CE case, it would also be considered a High Profile Case. I do believe that this case has not been compelling to the State nor to the DA's office because it's not a slam dunk, these cases are never slam dunks, and they know that, so maybe it's just not compelling enough?

    This case will cost a lot of money once the POI is arrested. Right now, the DA's office is busy trying to fix their reputation that was completely wacked during Nifong's reign. Tracy Cline herself still has to deal with the criticizm that taints the office because she worked closely with Nifong. Durham DA's office is still dealing with the Nifong fall-out.

    Oh yeah, in about two years there will be another election for DA. With election coming in less than two years for District Attorney again, either a high profile case is going to be exactly what Tracy Cline needs, or something she would refuse to take on.

    Homicides by a significant other are the hardest cases to try because it's not what is found at the scene but what is NOT found at the scene. I also think these cases are on the rise and have a domino effect on other cases, and if you actually look at statistics, how many are UNSOLVED for the same reasons? These are CE cases and it's what is not at the scene of the crime vs. what is found at the scene of the crime! You just need someone qualified and with heart enough to handle these types of cases in the DA's office and funding!

    I believe the murderer is running free because the POI is no longer in that state and the victim's family is not in the state. There was not enough National Media on the case also. It's just not compelling enough for anyone in the DA's office to take it or maybe nobody in Durham's DA is qualified to handle a case such as this. Maybe Durham feels it's not their problem anymore and are just sitting back waiting for this POS to kill again...and he will kill again!

    I personally know plenty of ADA's that are qualified to take this to court and win this case, I would hope that there would be at least one or two in Durhams DA's office that can handle this case and I keep praying for someone that has the heart, smarts and courage to take on this case and the Will to Win!

    IMO Durham funding and politics are the #1 reason this case has not come to a resolution, not the evidence nor lack of evidence on this case.
