You make an important point. Physical violence is not a necessary part of the Hare psychopath. (I do think that the Cleckley/Hare model is importantly different from DSM-IV anti social personality disorder.)

But, there is a flip side to this as well.

A number of white collar criminals may in fact fit the Hare checklist, and yet they have committed minimal acts of physical violence.

It would be good to know if any of the recently incarcerated white collar criminals fit the Hare diagnostic.
