The abuse was so bad that when Gacy was molested by a family friend he suffered in silence. Gacy was so scared about what his father would do he chose to keep quiet. John Wayne Gacy was guilty of killing 33 people mostly teenage boys and burying them under his house. He got most of his victims by dressing up as pogo the clown.

While many ponder on how such a young child could display evil characteristics, many blame Mary’s behavior on her disturbing upbringing (Tales From The Dark Side). Mary had a depressing childhood; her mother was portrayed to be a raging alcoholic and she had an all but absent father (“Mary Bell”). During Mary’s brief childhood, she experienced the torment of abandonment and drug overdoses. On several occasions, Mary suffered frequent drug overdoses that were more than likely distributed by her mother. Betty reportedly suffered from Munchausen by Poxy Syndrome, which is thriving on the attention over her daughter’s horrific “accidents.” Mary’s most serious case involved her swallowing a number of iron pills that belonged to
Chikatilo’s father was sent to war when the Soviet Union joined World War II. Because of being malnourished, Chikatilo’s stomach was swollen and would get bullied in school because of his appearance.

After graduating he tried to get a scholarship to Moscow University, however he didn’t get in, Chikatilo thought this might have been because of his father being taken prisoner at war, even though this was actually because other students had performed better than him. In 1963 Chikatilo’s sister and her husband arranged his marriage to a woman called
The boyars took him in to watch over him, though they did not do a good job. They only payed Ivan attention when it was required at ceremonies or when it was through varying forms of physical and sexual abuse. Living in poverty, Ivan often witnessed brutal murders and abuse; he was exposed to much court intrigue, family dangers, and took all of this torment out on small animals when he was still young. With birds alone, he would tear off their feathers, pierce their eyes, and slit their bodies. His poor upbringing is believed to be a likely cause for what became his ruthless
He grew up in a very abusive family ("Richard "The Iceman" Kuklinski”). His father, Stanley Kuklinski, was an alcoholic and regularly beat Richard and his siblings (YouTube). Richard’s mother also would beat Richard and his siblings often. At the age of five, Stanley Kuklinski beat Richard’s brother Florian to death ("Richard "The Iceman" Kuklinski”).

Atticus is judged by a few in the community, but he is a great father. In To Kill a Mocking Bird, Atticus Finch is criticized by many people in the community about how he raises his children. Two characters in the novel that portray this action are Aunt Alexandra and Uncle Jack. Aunt Alexandra does not accept the way he raises Scout and how he lets her go around dressed like a boy. Uncle Jack just disagrees with Atticus' whole view on disciplining his kids.
Instead of being sent to a detention centre, his father locked him up in his house and now he is mentally unstable from the years of isolation. The mockingbird also has a compelling importance due to the connections with Boo Radley and Tom Robinson. Harper Lee uses juxtaposition to highlight the contrast of a black man and a white man facing racism and discrimination. However in this novel, one mockingbird is shot and the other is pressured to kill. A Mockingbird is considered for someone who displays innocence, kindness and does not want any recognition of the good deeds they do for others.
In To Kill a Mockingbird there were many characters who were misjudged such as Tom Robinson, Atticus Finch, and even Calpernia but the character who was most misjudged was Boo (Arthur) Radley because of the incident that he had with his father as a child, which was when people started viewing him as a monster when in reality he wasn’t.
