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.

Jeffrey MacDonald
An Army Green Beret doctor named Jeffrey MacDonald began showing signs of violence and hatred of women in his adolescence. In 1970, was accused of killing his wife and daughters, and then staging the scene to look like a cult slaying in the mold of Charles Manson. MacDonald was convicted of murder, but his case — the subject of the book Fatal Vision — has dragged on for four decades. In August 2010, his lawyers filed a brief in federal court asking for a new trial and claiming that DNA evidence could prove MacDonald's innocence.

This should be interesting to follow. I see theres a thread on him.

IMO, the Pure Torturers like Cameron Hooker, should be given the heaviest sentences: equal torture.

Having recently read both Hitler's and Stalin's bio's, Stalin comes close to this classification. Just having his prisoners of war walking barefoot all the way to Siberia and enduring a winter up there with little or no clothes, no food, no heat, just dying slowly, what torture! And summer comes, for those that survived the winters, there was the torture of mosquito's, and forced slave labor.

After Hitler came into power, he immediately went around and had any number of his opponents shot quickly. He could have gotten more mileage out of it by slowly torturing them for years, but he didn't. I give him some credit for that. One shot and out of their misery.
