The "Cannibal Cop", A Psychopath Who Didn't Eat Human Flesh.



Here is, in a short version, my own view on the subject as I posted it by the video at Youtube...

I think Dr. David Greenfield is correct about why we develop strange fetishes seemingly out of the blue. I can certainly trace my own sexuality back to how when I was a child I became aware that female sexuality was something that was seen as indecent, dirty, shameful and punishable, but I wasn't consciously aware of how that connected with how I developed my own sexual sadism even as a pre-teen. Sexuality and gender is not talked about and so there is no way for people to avoid or re-direct negative elements from developing within their sexuality.
As for this cop, he did commit a crime. Giving sensitive information about and pictures of women that he looked up the police database to virtual strangers, people about whom he has no way of knowing whether or not they may (ab)use that information, not to mention the mere fact that he has given that information without the women's consent, that is a crime and because of this - not because of his fantasies  which don't really matter - there's no way he should be allowed back into the police force or any other job of a similar nature.

The thing that stood out the most in when I watched this video and read the comments section below it was that people focused on this guy's fantasies, that this is what made them think him to be evil. Few even mentioned the fact that the actual crime he committed had nothing to do with his fantasies or with cannibalism, it had to do with not respecting people's privacy and abusing his power.

In a society where we're quicker to judge people for what they think about than for what they actually do to one another, how can we wonder why we have been so slow about realizing that psychopathy is more, and - I suspect - often different from merely being somebody who don't care about having a destructive impact upon his surroundings.

I have been thinking about writing a little more about my relationship with sex but I've hesitated because this blog is meant to be appropriate for all ages and all kinds of approaches to religion and life in general. It's not always easy to find where to draw the line.

I have for quite some time been thinking about publishing an article about the two times when as a young man (teenager, really) I 'engaged' in rape, there's a lot that hasn't been said about that and I know the truth will definitely not be what people expect. I may still write that article as I believe it should be easy, or at least possible, to do so without crossing any lines.

Zack, I wanted to ask you: If you have shallow emotions you should have an hightened mental sensitivity, I mean that what you do not feel with the emotion you can (ok, not really can, but you get the point) compensate with mental activity, mental pleasure. If you understand what I mean (and I think you do), you confirm this? I's' a correct opinion?

Zhawq AmaDraque said...

I can absolutely confirm what you're saying. When I was younger I found it very difficult to understand how it could be that other people - all those who claimed to be normal and good and right - did not do the same.

In a certain way I can't help but thinking 'What does it matter if you're a good person if you can't find any pleasure from doing anything with it, from hopefully helping your fellow human beings with new ideas...you know: Fellow Human Beings, the ones you claim to care so very deeply for?...If you can't think outside the box, can't find pleasure in looking for solutions beyond those that the authorities and the government tells you to follow, then what good is it to be good and normal?'.

I think some of the problem those of us who do have heightened mental activity and sensitivity have when we try to talk sense to people and try to educate them, even if we do in a kind way without talking down to them, is what I describe above.

I also think it may very well be the reason for some of us to grow so completely disillusioned that we end up thinking:

"What the hell, they don't get it and they don't care to. Trying to talk sense to people gets me nowhere and nothing but "heartache", and I'm sick of it so from now on I'm going to indulge - just like them. Let them see what real indulgence can be!"

And if somebody asks us we can reply: "Well they may not like to see real indulgence, but they're the ones who taught us, they didn't want to listen to reason or even meet us half way, now let them wallow in their own mess, because I've had it and I'll wash my hands in their filth!"

Maybe that sounds somewhat misanthropic, but that's the kinds of extremes you'll find from a mentally highly sensitive person, especially when they/we are young but often also later in life.

But to answer your question about mental pleasure directly: Yes, that is a very big part of how I function, it always has been and it very obviously always will be. It hasn't waned in any way, if anything my mental sensitivity and need for gratification in that area may in fact be growing stronger as time passes.

"I have been thinking about writing a little more about my relationship with sex but I've hesitated because this blog is meant to be appropriate for all ages and all kinds of approaches to religion and life in general. It's not always easy to find where to draw the line." Some of the things you could certainly talk about - and people are interested in - is psychopathy's link to things such as pedophilia/child molestation, rape , sex addiction, misogyny, sexual sadism, homosexuality/bisexuality and gender identity issues (you hear many stories about psychopaths who are cross dressers and closet bi/homosexuals.)

Anonymous said...

Mental sensitivity seems understandable as a “capacity to feel, transmit, or react to stimulus” (google) as a mental process. But ‘mental gratification’ I just don’t get. Gratification implies a kind of satisfaction which surely has some emotional component even if lacking depth and sustainability.

Your thought provoking video and article brought me here but I couldn’t resist reading comments and got side tracked. Just to say if you decide to go ahead with the topics you mention I believe you are more than capable of doing so with subtlety, something you are particularly skilled at.

Great Article Mr. Zhawq. There's a secret society called Skull and Bones, in order to be a part of this elite soceity a part of the ceremony is to talk explicitly about all your sexual encounters. This society bringsforth a lot of CEO's and powerful positions. I suspect that many of them have engaged in rape. The fact that men are turned on by the expression of females faces during intercourse brings part of the pleasure of commiting this act. Anyone with enough intellect van see that female sexuality is greatly repressed, especially in religious countries. Where those experiences among your first sexual experiences, and do you still fantasize about rape?

Dr. Vaknin has talked about how trump and hilary are almost certainly psychopathic, do you agree? It much more than political lies machination, its in their underlying menage and how at least Trump says things more than political, i cant grasp exactly what it is bit I feel he is more certainly psychopathic than clinton. Interesting Article btw.

For anyone who indulges excessively in extreme sadistic fantasies to 'switch off' to consensual BDSM or vanilla sex (in a wide sense of course) is puzzling and something you could possibly shed some light on.

Zhawq AmaDraque said...

Anon Aug 2.-16, 12:09 AM,

Vaknin and I agree about most of the people he writes about. And i this case, Hillary and Trump, yes, so absolutely.

Though I normally abstain from saying I think anybody is psychopathic who's career or who's family depends on their reputation, I have no quarrel about saying what I think in the case of these two individuals.

Contrary to what I expect many would think, in my mind there is no doubt that Hillary is the more psychopathic of the two while Trump's narcissism is more visible and probably influences his behavior more than it does for Hillary.

For this reason I think Trump is more volatile and unpredictable - something which in and on itself can be a great asset but also a great liability when a whole nation's future is at stake.

While Hillary will continue to lead us into the abyss, Trump could send us over the edge in an instant. And while generally speaking Hillary's ideas are probably even more dangerous than Trumps - being the pro-limitation of people's freedom - I sadly think she may be the safer card to go for at least in the short term.

I more or less gave up trying to tell NT's anything complete waste of time!

It just hits their emotional lymbic system and gets rejected. Unless the following conditions are met => a person is of some emotional significance to them + they like the information + they believe it can work for them.
I even tell them in advance " you're going to reject this information" and they still do it!

A relative (the one I find most trying) recently made the statement “I never lie”. Through bitter experience I’ve learnt to keep some of my thoughts to myself, but my mind screamed out “that’s the biggest lie I’ve ever heard”. And of course it is because even the holier than thou persons indulge in untruths – we all do at times.

But it got me thinking and I came to the conclusion that psychopaths are known to be prolific liars, but don’t seem to lie to themselves, whilst non’s, even those who avoid lying to others as much as they can, lie constantly to themselves. So one could deduce that psychopaths direct their dishonesty outwards and non’s do so inwards. Just a reflection I found fascinating.

I can't help but wonder what it is you are telling NT's that they reject. Perhaps you could be stereo-typing, just maybe, as some of us have open minds and think outside the box as a way of experiencing life.
There are likely more such as myself who have read almost every post here and actually feel we have gained personally from the insight and logic of a psychopath.

There is something you don't appear to have covered in your articles, and that is adjustment. Humans together with all living species have this ability in the long term resulting in evolutionary survival, but psychopaths are believed to have a heightened ability to adjust to prevailing circumstances in the short term with relative ease compared to others.

Have you noticed this? And if so it would be nice if you could give some examples since if so, this is an aspect of psychopathy that could be considered 'wisdom' and something we would do well to pay heed to.

I found this site while trying to look up the average score for the PCL-R, and after a few weeks of on and off lurking, I've finally decided to comment.



First I wanted to thank you for making this website; it's been not only incredibly informative and fascinating to read, but has also made me question and correct a false assumption that I (and probably a lot of others) held. You see, growing up, from how they're portrayed in the media, I had this mental picture of psychopaths as these cartoon-villain like caricatures of evil. It's pretty stupid now that I think about it, because obviously psychopaths are still human and no person is entirely good or evil, but that's the effect of years of cultural brainwashing for you.



After reading through some articles over a period of days, that was when I found out about the rapes. That discovery was what caused the "off" periods of the on and off reading-I have a close family member who went through that, and to keep reading almost felt like a betrayal. But my curiosity got the better of me and I came back. I was hoping to find answers as to the motivation for doing that, especially since you've stated that you didn't commit your crimes at random. What did you feel you would gain from doing it?



And speaking of caricatures of evil-after finding out about the rapes, I made an effort to think of you as the Ultimate Evil I had always been taught that all rapists are, and just take the knowledge offered without sympathizing, but the polite, eager to learn attitude is rather disarming and made it impossible. Sigh. I guess this means that there really is no "pure/ultimate" evil out there, and the human race is just made up of varying shades of moral greyness and ambiguity. Maybe at 20 years old and in college I should have known this already, but I suppose it's better late than never.



Reading this blog also made me wonder-do psychopaths feel boredom more intensely than other people? Because I've felt bored and impatient before, but I've never seriously considered committing a crime that would risk my freedom and everything I've gained in life to alleviate it. The way you described it, feeling like a living death (or something like that), sounds almost more like depression than any feeling of boredom I've experienced.



I'm sorry about your health issues and constant pain, and I hope you can find a way out of whatever country you're living in that can justify doing that to someone. Hearing the story behind that was pretty shocking, but after myself having to deal with daily bouts of pain and continually deteriorating health for over a year after a supposedly routine operation, with the doctors refusing to admit they'd done anything wrong, I know it's certainly not out of the realm of possibility.

EdKNZ said...

I gave this a lot of thoughts; But I cannot agree - ok, he should not have used the datatbases he had access to because of his job as a police-man. I nevertheless cannot find him guilty - it does not matter in the end, if he gets my photo and adress from his database, or becaues he followed me one day after seeing me in the bus, or if he just was browsing internet and sees a pic of me...
And I visualized - what if somebody did something with me in his imagination, putting me in the shoes of the "victims" of phantasy-kidnapping and torturing.
But surprisingly I came to the conclusion, this would not frighten my at all.. I mean, he never hurt any of these women.
Ok, havint such phantasies is kind of sick, but - such aberrations of sexual impulses have a good reason, they are a result of his coping whatever went wrong in his very early environment.
Go and bust the parents, if you want a guilty person put in jail.
But this guy was actually guiding these urges in a harmless direction, ok, he followed some woman to their home - but he did not break in or whatever, the ones he had real contact with, he also was polite, did not harm any of the.
In my opion it is of nobody's business, what phantasy he is later jerking off at home.
Thoughts have to be free. And as there seems to be a chatroom for such phantasies with 60 000 members, as I remember, well, that tells us a lot what goes wrong with mankind, but isn't it a good thing, that like-minded people can actually meet and talk about their dark and sick urges, maybe play together wit thoughts and get feedback from others, which maybe helps them to cope with it.
It is idiotic to claim somebody CHOOSES to go for such shit. That just comes up and you have to deal with it. To who could you possibly talk about something? His wife? Doubtable.
People are idiots, as I have to judge most of the reactions. And this silly question: who can guarantee that he will never REALLY do it?
Well, nobody can guarantee it. But as it is out in the open, it would not be so easy for him to actually go real. On the other hand, you also cannot guarrantee that another guy, who never chatted or talked to anybody about their emotions towards woman, suddenly go pop and out of the blue sloughter one or two in this very first night.
And people are into weird shit, if you look at advertising - they want to get diaperd, shitten in the face, put animals in their asses... he just found this chats as an outlet with a bonus thrill of googling data ...like world of warcraft if parented wrong.
And I find it very disturbing, that our legal system is now at a point, where THOUGHTS can get you in jail.
THIS is the sick part, that really freaks me out in this case. That they now can actually do this.

Followed your previous blog and am doing so with your new one. Although I get most of what you write, there is one question I would like to ask you. In your article on psychopathic sexuality you state that you like to control the perception people have of you. I was a bit surprised as I was under the impression that psychopaths couldn't care less about what others think of them (that is under the surface or mask). Have I got this wrong?
Zhawq, your input would be welcome.

Zhawq AmaDraque said...

Anon Nov. 3. -16, 2:30 PM,

Many psychopaths go to great length to control how others perceive them simply because it gives them power to also control how people behave towards the psychopath.

If someone perceives you as a warm heart who would never abuse anybody they are more likely to trust you with their bank account. In other cases again it is merely a question about being able to execute control and experiment with how far you can influence someone to change their behavior.

I have met psychopaths who went out of their way to influence people to the extent that they would act completely against their own interest and eventually self destruct. This kind of control is not unusual with psychopaths who describe themselves as taking delight in "corrupting" or "ruining" other people.

Personally I have only ever taken this kind of delight with people who I know to have done excessive harm to others.

To give you a comparative example: Watch the second movie in the Hannibal Lecter series where Lecter makes the villain slice off his own face and feed it to his dog.

The whole point of this scene is that he makes the evil and sadistic villain do this to himself AND do it willingly. Personally I took delight in the scene because the villain got what he deserved but I think the audience was meant to feel sickened. My emotions would probably classify as 'callous'.

On a final note: A psychopath who scores 40 on the PCL-R wouldn't feel sickened nor smug or satisfied - nor anything else for that matter - by watching this scene. Psychopaths at that level are so emotionally flat that they almost deserve the label of being people without emotions.

Trump didn't care about offending people but now for example has said he would probably ask Bill Clinton for advice (the same man who just a couple of weeks before he publicly accused of being a seriel rapist and brought the women to one of the presidential debates).


"Personally I took delight in the scene because the villain got what he deserved but I think the audience was meant to feel sickened. My emotions would probably classify as 'callous'." This is a common reaction amoung normal "empathetic" people as well.

Zarq,
I've read every blog posting of yours.
You're definitely a fascinating case study.

Yet I wonder if you are not a psychopath. Perhaps you're a sociopath.

If psychopathy is defined as a biological/physiological brain dysfunction then when was this diagnosed?

I suspect you brain scans were done well after the environmental factors had changed your brain chemistry.

Your initial years in an orphanage were crrtainly traumatic and set the stage for your future behavior.

Perhaps I'm wrong or missed something.

In the end it may just be a distinction without a difference.

I think Donald Trump will try to be the best president he can be.

He and Hillary Clinton are both people who want to win, but Hillary wants to win for the power that winning gets her. Trump is much more narcissistic, he wants to win because he wants to win. Now he won the presidency, what's next? Being the best and most popular president the US has ever had, obviously.

I don't see any tendency toward self destruction in Trump or towards making others self destruct - unless they become his enemies. In that case he will stop at nothing, but so far he appears to try to obtain the opposite, to make friends where possible both nationally and internationally.

Zhawq AmaDraque said...

It's always - or usually - difficult to tell if someone is a psychopath just by reading their words. I knew a politician who's a psychopath, but I wasn't aware of it until I met him. When that happened I knew it instantly, but it wasn't because he was a bad person, it's difficult to describe, but if you know what to look for and have some experience with this kind of thing, you just know.

As for myself, I guess you'll just have to take my word for it. What can I say? My scans show the anomalies that cannot be a result of the impacts of my life experiences.

The thing is, if I was a sociopath or had Antisocial Personality Disorder I would have the behavior but not the differences in my brain.

But you're right for as far goes my antisocial behavior, that - in my own opinion, anyway - is clearly a result of my upbringing and my life experiences. It is totally possible to have the brain of a psychopath and yet not be antisocial.

I'm aware that I wrote a few years back that you cannot be a psychopath and not display antisocial behavior, but back then the new scientific results in psychopathy research which shows that you can indeed be a productive citizen and have the brain of a psychopath had not yet become known. All I had to go on back then was the studies of Robert Hare and his predecessors who all studied antisocial and criminal psychopaths. Nobody thought of checking if people who behave normally could have the same brain patterns and brain anomalies. Now we know that they can (ref. James Fallon and others).

I hope my answer helps solve the understandable confusion. '^L^,

About how psychopaths adjust to change easier than most normal people do...

You're right, we do. Examples... well, I guess it especially pertains to difficult types of change such as if you're suddenly thrown into prison sentenced for something you didn't do - or did do as the case may be.

When I was in prison I remember seeing some inmates become gray haired within weeks. This would never happen to a psychopath. Psychopaths have a way of always finding new situations interesting, even if they're difficult. It may in part have something to do with our high pain threshold, and even when we do feel pain it has to be very severe before we succumb to it, have to lie down, etc.

I also remember when I was sent to new orphanages as a kid, some of the other kids would cry at night, I never understood why they didn't find the new surroundings interesting and wanted to explore rather than be sad about it.

Now I was never the kind of kid who bullied or teased other kids for being weak or for crying or for just being different, in fact I would often stand up for them and take on kids that were a lot larger than I was to defend the weaker kids and sometimes I would be beaten badly because of it.

Come to think of it, maybe it's because of my psychopathy that I have the resolve and stamina to continue to do what I think is right despite all the "beating" I get from the establishment. Thanks for bring it up, it gave me some food for thought and maybe I will write an article about this topic.

I do have a variety of emotions, even sympathy, but I guess you're right about calling them shallow - at least for the most part.

When I feel anger or frustration I'll say they're quite intense, perhaps even more so than for most non-psychopaths - at least this is how it looks to me based on my observations of normal people when they're angry or frustrated.

The difference between me and normal people with regards to those two feelings is probably that for me they tend to not last very long while normal people can have some difficulty letting go. Anger and frustration tends to stay with them for days, weeks, even years in some cases.

Really enjoy your calm and logical way of thinking. Although I think you most likely use some kind of 'mask' here, logic and calmness are said to be traits of psychopaths, so those aspects must be genuine.

Sam Vaknin is talking nonsense again. Trump is a threat to world peace and all the rest. He said the same about Obama but when Trump came along apparently Obama is suddenly "intelligent and pro social". He really should stick to speaking about psychopathy and NPD and not predicting that the next president of America is going to blow up the world. (And Hilary clearly was always much more dangerous and much more psychopathic than Trump anyway).

"The thing is, if I was a sociopath or had Antisocial Personality Disorder I would have the behavior but not the differences in my brain." Well they must have something wrong with their brain as well.

"I'm aware that I wrote a few years back that you cannot be a psychopath and not display antisocial behavior, but back then the new scientific results in psychopathy research which shows that you can indeed be a productive citizen and have the brain of a psychopath had not yet become known.

Nobody thought of checking if people who behave normally could have the same brain patterns and brain anomalies. Now we know that they can (ref. James Fallon and others)." Because you have the genetics and brain function that are observed in psychopaths doesn't mean you are a psychopath it just means you have a low emotional arousal (some abnormality in the central nervous system). At this stage we don't know what we can say with confidence from these brain scans. For example Adrian Raine (look him up if you haven't heard of him another very interesting researcher - he also found he has a brain similar to psychopathic serial killers) has found the biggest (or one of) biological predictor of violent crime. What is it? A low resting heart rate. But many people have a low resting heart rate - I do (as well as Raine) but we aren't violent criminals. So it maybe the case you can no more diagnose psychopathy based on brain scans than on heart rates.

The psychopaths i have met seem in a state of confusion. They seem alert yet they are confused about how things work and the nature of persons.

Zhawq,
I posted to you on Nov. 19. First, my apologies for mispelling your name then. Silly mental lapse on my part.

Second, thanks for clarifying the distinction between psychopath and sociopath.

What mentioned about psychopaths raised in normal environments being able function as normal people is particularly interesting, as it implies that psychopathy is not necessarily a condition which should be stigmatized in the way sociopathy or narcissism are. Rather it might be more accurately viewed as a condition within the Autism spectrum, or something where lack of empathy is of a more benign nature.

As a mere layman my understanding is hardly thorough. I'm just fascinated by human behavior.


Thanks again for your insights.

Zhawq - Copied below from someone’s comment elsewhere and posted it on facebook. Everyone who viewed it could read it without a problem. But I was wondering if you can, having a form of dyslexia and maybe English not being your 1st language?

Trump says he will bring down the elite - to my mind a good thing. But it depends on how he defines elite and whether it is confined to those not part of his inner circle. From my definition he is elite or at least falls into the privileged category, having had life too easy: wealthy supportive father who had ‘useful’ contacts; benefitted from trust funds; inheritance; opulent lifestyle with private jet; friends in high places; optimal gain from tax loopholes.

His criticism of media is valid but does not exclude those that report favourably on him, to which he lends support. And I find his discrimination based on racial profiling and sexual identity/orientation contemptible– but that’s just me.

All things added up, there really wasn’t much choice for Americans between him and Hillary. At least with him it’s the devil you know, whereas one cannot know what lies behind her façade. Time will ultimately tell what his legacy turns out to be.

For anyone else ‘hearing the silence here loudly” –something beautiful to listen to.
