The film's explanation of Rickey Ray Rector, who incurred some degree of brain damage after committing multiple murders when he shot himself in the temple, is somewhat manipulated to cast Rector in a sympathetic light. Rector was, despite his minor self-inflicted injury, judged to be competent to stand trial, as his brain damage was minimal and he expressed an understanding of the charges against him, the difference between right and wrong, and what the death penalty was on multiple occasions.

A train wreck of confirmation biases and manipulators leading pure academics by the nose
I think most reasonably intelligent people realize that some of the most sadistic, unempathetic, sociopathic criminals in our midst come from awful backgrounds, dysfunctional families, abuse, and trauma. The credibility of this program's assertions quickly ends there.
The program proceeds to document two academic psychotherapists being led around by the nose by some of the most manipulative personalities known, psychopathic sexual sadists and murderers. Murders who repeatedly and conveniently evidence, for the first time, multiple personality disorders, when interviewed by these two. Performances which are encouraged and almost welcomed with glee. If you want to watch something that will strip you of any faith you might have in defense "experts," watch this. This is the definition of confirmation bias in quasi-science.
