Which Part of America Has The Highest Concentration of Psychopaths? The Answer is Hilarious

Published

If you’ve been around the block a bit — politically speaking — then you’ve likely heard Washington, D.C. and the federal government referred to as a breeding ground for all sorts of psychopaths.

Well, according to a new study, there’s actually a whole lot of truth to that statement.

That’s right, folks. Washington has the highest concentration of psychopaths in the United States. It all makes sense now, doesn’t it?

A report conducted by Ryan Murphy at Southern Methodist University found that Connecticut contained the most psychopaths per capita followed quickly by California. New Jersey and New York followed next. But our nation’s capital by far had the highest level of psychopathic behavior than anywhere in the country.

As Newsmax notes, “Added in the study was Washington, D.C., which ‘had a psychopathy level far higher’ than any state, according to the report – albeit because it is a small, entirely urban area and not as geographically diverse as a state. “The presence of psychopaths in District of Columbia is consistent with the conjecture found in Murphy [2016] that psychopaths are likely to be effective in the political sphere,” Murphy concluded in his study. (emphasis added)

Murphy analyzed “levels of big five personality traits (extroversion, agreeableness, conscientiousness, neuroticism, and openness to experience) in each state,” to carry out his research.

Turns out our nation’s capital attracts these kind of characters in a major way.

“The District of Columbia is measured to be far more psychopathic than any individual state in the country, a fact that can be readily explained either by its very high population density or by the type of person who may be drawn a literal seat of power (as in Murphy 2016),” the report says.

Not shocking at all to see the entertainment industry is chock full of psychopaths. That’s a fact that seems relatively self-evident, same with politics.

However, it’s a little scary to think of these sort of individuals as being the folks who are calling the shots for the future of our nation. Long gone are the good old days of men like George Washington taking political office out of a sense of duty to God and fellow men.

Maybe one day politicians will be less psycho and more men of character and integrity. We can always hope and pray, right?

Secret Service Shamed After Drunk Agents Assault Cab Driver in South Korea

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations.

You can tell a lot about a White House by the extracurricular nonsense that hits the press surrounding it.

For instance, after one of President Joe Biden’s dogs began biting random people on the grounds, we started hearing murmurs of just how terse and stressful the place had become, with dog behavior experts suggesting that the mood at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue might have a lot to do with the aggression.

This week, the Biden administration beget more bad behavior, but this time it wasn’t from one of the First Pets.

Two U.S. Secret Service agents in South Korea were sent stateside ahead of President Biden’s arrival following their involvement in an off-duty alcohol-related incident.

The two agents, whose identities have not been made public, are on their way back to Washington, D.C. where they will face disciplinary action, a source familiar with the matter told Fox News.

Both agents apparently became intoxicated while not on duty. One of the agents then got into an altercation with a cab driver.

There could be more trouble coming, as well.

In South Korea, officials send mediators to the scene of low-level disputes and then determine if criminal charges would be filed.

One of the agents was interviewed by authorities and no charges have been filed.

The government released one of its usual, dry, boilerplate-esque missives.

“The Secret Service is aware of an off-duty incident involving two employees which may constitute potential policy violations,” USSS chief spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told Fox News. “We have very strict protocols and policies for all employees and we hold ourselves to the highest professional standards.”

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations, with a notable incident having occurred in 2012, involving Barack Obama’s agents and a Colombian prostitute.
