Psychopathic Criminals Can Manipulate Parole Boards to Get Out of Jail


Recent study showed that psychopathic criminals are released from prison earlier than other, regardless of how grave their offensives are.

It is known that psychopaths have good skills in manipulating other people, but they are also good at manipulating legal systems in their favor.

Kent Kiehl of the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque, says that psychopathic criminals manage to persuade administrators to give them better food, resources, or to work on road crews, outside prison.

Steve Porter of Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, analyzed the records of 310 prisoners in a Canadian prison in order to identify psychopaths' level of success in fooling parole boards. The researchers discovered that psychopathic criminals were 2.5 times more likely to be let out of prison early. In addition, he said that termed psychopaths were "much more likely to then violate their parole than non-psychopaths". His findings were based on a standard psychological test, reports New Scientist.

According to the developer of the psychological tests, Bob Hare of the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, parole boards should receive better training to know what a psychopath really is.
