Here's the thing. Episode 1 shows Akane being willing to appeal to moral authority beyond the Sybil system's judgement. And somehow I doubt she didn't bludgeon Makishima to death because of orders.

Perhaps that's what a Psycho-Pass reading is all about - Firmness of character, no sense of shame, no sense of having compromised one's self or one's ideals, no crippling doubts or second thoughts.
I'd pretty sure Makishima is pretty solidly Chaotic evil though. Neutral people don't become serial killers for fun.
