  • Here’s the thing: Jeffrey Dahmer scored a 22. Ted Bundy scored a 32. When I scored Keith, I came up with a score of 36.

    Did Dahmer and Bundy take the test themselves or were they scored by psychiatrists? Frank with all dues respect, your scoring Raniere is not an accurate test of psychopathy because you are completely biased against him. I would like to know what a mental healthy professional thinks though and if they’d agree with your assessment because Raniere is mentally well.

    • How did you reach the conclusion that Keith is mentally well?

      Obviously, you either have not had direct contact with Keith or you have been drinking gallons of the Kool-Aid!

      Healthy people don’t brand women, tell them to drink from a puddle, run into a tree head-on, or keep a woman in a room for 18 months because she refuses to have sex with the dirty herpes-infested pig, Keith!

      Lena, a test for you may be in order.

      • Oh no I agree that Raniere did some very horrible and criminal actions but I do believe that he is legally sane–perhaps that would have been a better phrase then mentally well. He knows that what he did was wrong and he may be a sociopath but is a psychopath.

  • Keith didn’t physically kill anyone himself (that we are aware of), though he possibly arranged to have people killed. Also, he’s not nearly as crazy as Dahmer, who was a cannibal…I think Bundy and Dahmer were much scarier than Keith could ever be.

    • Of course they still are scarier. Anyone who orchestrates murder via a social network that’s within his direct control, is not scary at all. They can’t and should not be charged with anything remotely associated with a crime because they are less scary than Dahmer. Or. Bundy. Or both.

      • Charlie Manson was not present in the house while Sharon Tate and other were slaughtered. Charlie ordered the murders!

        We don’t have proof yet but I do think Keith directed the death (suicides) of three people he knew directly.

        That’s a lot of suicides. Remember he did write the Suicide Module!!
