Judgment Call by Skaja Evens

The only thing keeping her from being classified a sociopath 

According to a licensed therapist

Is the fact that she is capable of empathy

So how does one explain away the criteria

Symptoms of problematic behavior

Barely kept in check

Violence simmering under the paper thin surface

Having her own code of right and wrong

As part of her psychosis
