Very interesting that many think we should not put psychopaths to death and instead fill our prisons with them.

I believe just the opposite. Prisons filled with psychopaths mean nonpsychopaths will be in much more danger, exposing them to much more violence. I believe the answer is sentencing the psychopaths to the death penalty and getting them out of our prisons based on the very evil crimes they have committed for which they have no remorse. In consideration of the same crimes committed, does the psychopath with no empathy get to live while the nonpsychopath who may have remorse must die? That sounds to me like the opposite of justice.
