This is how I've always thought about it- Versatility and Criminal. A criminal who commits various offenses. He/She could steal an identity, get a DUI, and then be arrested for a sexual battery charge.
These offenses are very different- A criminal who has a record like this is unique. The criminal in question might have more than one motive and be dangerously unpredictable. Or he could have a personality disorder and cops could consider that disorder as an 'umbrella' motive, like psychopathy.

"Reckless disregard for the safety of self or others"
This is wrong. "Criminal versatility" means engaging in different types of crimes, and is a sign of psychopathy. For instance, someone who has a meth lab might steal the raw materials and traffic the finished product, in addition to cooking up the drug. That's not "criminal versatility" because everything is connected. But having a meth lab, committing unrelated burglaries, and molesting children would be a good example of it.

A role is a compromise - and compromise is not spirited. To BE a defender of life one must audaciously win it. When last did you see life compromise and humiliate itself? And those pathetic creatures who humble themselves for a captive audience!?
