    Cool use of "nor"

    Hi,

    Is the following sentence correct?

    Not all the psychopaths become one day assassins, nor physically violent.

    Not all psychopaths become assassins one day; nor do they all become physically violent.

    I would use "or" in the first sentence since the negative carries over from "Not all ..."
