MICHAEL STONE'S SCALE OF EVIL.
Transcript of MICHAEL STONE'S SCALE OF EVIL.
Most evil is an American Forensic TV program presented by forensic psychiatrist Michael Stone of Columbia University. in this television program he rates murders on a scale of evil that he himself has developed. the show covers many subjects such as murders, serial killers, psychopaths and mass murders.
BACKGROUND OF THE MASTERMIND HIMSELF
Columbia University professor Michael Stone knows evil. He's a forensic psychologist — the type of expert that provides testimony on the mental state of accused murderers when a declaration of insanity can mean the difference between life and death row.
EVIL'S OWN GRADING SCALE
His scale is loosely divided into three tiers. First are impulsive evil-doers: driven to a single act of murder in a moment of rage or jealousy. Next are people who lack extreme psychopathic features, but may be psychotic — that is, clinically delusional or out of touch with reality. Last are the profoundly psychopathic, or those who possess superficial charm, glib speech, grandiosity, but most importantly cunning and manipulativeness.
The least malevolent: Those who have killed in self-defense and do not show psychopathic features.
Long Island native Cheryl Pierson had been repeatedly molested by her father after her mother died. He was a domineering man with rigid and bizarre rules — for example, he insisted she eat three items on her dinner plate incrementally in a clockwise rotation; if she didn't he would become violent. In desperation at age 17, she paid a classmate $400 to kill her father. She was sentenced to six months in jail for what was, in Stone's words, "in effect a self-defense killing."
Jealous Lovers, committed their crimes in the heat of passion.
School director Jean Harris led an exemplary life before she became romantically involved with "Scarsdale Diet" doctor Herman Tarnower. But when she found another woman's panties in his dresser, she snapped. Harris shot her lover to death in a crime of passion — and was sentenced to 10 years in prison.
To conclude this horrific tale of Michael Stone's Scale of Evil I will answer the question that I had been thinking about while doing this project...Why did he do it?
His answer was very simple "It sounded fun and i was bored".
