    Who do you consider more cruel?

    There's some contrast between the crimes they committed and the result of their actions, making the answer seem more like a personal 'preference' imo, so I'm wondering: what do you think?

    Textbook borderline personality vs. textbook psychopath.

    Despite the planned out nature of her crime, I see Arias as too emotionally turbulent to really be 'cruel'. She's incredibly egocentric, but I know she's fighting genuine bouts of remorse over what she did.

    Castro, on the other hand, even to the end seemed incapable or unwilling to relate to his victims. Everything is rationalization and ego-shielding.

    Jodi isn't a borderline and Ariel doesn't have anti-social personality disorder.

    They clearly are, but i'll allow you a chance to explain yourself.

    I've seen Borderlines. The interviews with her parents and friends leave no doubt in my mind.

    How anyone can deny that Castro is a psychopath given the details and even his remarks yesterday is really beyond me.

    I don't like 'Antisocial Personality Disorder'

    It's too broad and practically encompasses every fucking person with a temper and impulse control issues.
