These traits, Kouri points out in his analysis, are common to psychopathic serial killers.

Interesting.
many of us share these traits.
the reason is, these traits are all part of the human Psyche
mass murderers don't know how to control these traits
normal people do.

in general were all psychologically tarred with the same brush.
the only thing that stops us normal people from killing raping and molesting is the social norm. make rape legal and watch the number of rape cases soar exponentially.
