Nuture isn’t the only thing that affects a serial killer. Many serial killers are affected by nature just like some are affected by nurture. Nature isn’t the most common effect, but it does play its part in creating a psychopath. Antisocial attitudes, values and beliefs, and negative family experiences and low levels of school or vocational achievement (Dawn Wissman, 2013). “It is also important to note that the "triad of evil" that has historically been used to identify social behavior typical of a serial killer is incorrect.” (Dawn Wissman, 2013).
3. Have any notorious murders been a psychopath or a sociopath? If so, who were they and what traits did they display? Psychopaths hide among us, sometimes as the most successful human beings because they are cold-blooded and seemingly charismatic (Mallet, 2015). Between 0.2% and 3.3% of our world’s population are diagnosed psychopaths and 1% of our population are diagnosed sociopaths (Peterson, 2000; Mallet, 2015).
However majority percent said that they were fine to be a part of the experiment. However, I feel that the thought of harming other human under pressure of obedience itself is not less than actually harming people. It is one and the same. This study even after years kindled a debate of ethical treatment of study participants. Even though the debriefing is done and further interviews conducted with the participants, still some amount of unethical treatment is present in this study.
Because of sensationalized murder, the upper class began to worry about the affects of sensationalized murder on juveniles and a moral panic ensued. According to Cohen, a moral panic is registered as a threat to the established order and results in public hysteria. This happened when the upper class became concerned with the effects of Penny Dreadfuls on juvenile society. A Penny dreadful is similar to the modern television series with each publication representing an episode in the saga. According to Flanders, Penny dreadful found success with stories of true crime, especially murder.
Another defense sometimes used by prosecutors is the plea of "temporary insanity"; this essentially amounts to a claim of a crime of passion. In an eerily similar manner to crimes committed under the influence of PTSD, this defense is used for someone who had a temporary loss of being able to tell right from wrong due to an extreme traumatic experience. Most jurors are unsympathetic to this claim (Rubinstein). The largely unseen counter worlds of empirical reality, behavioral advance, scientific discovery, and philosophical inquiry paint quite a different picture. Empirically, the insanity defense is rarely used, is less frequently successful, and generally results in maximum security facilities (often far more restrictive than prisons or reformatories) for far longer periods of time than the defendants would have been subject to had they been sentenced criminally (Perlin.)
Nevertheless people believe that PTSD can be tamed or calmed down. But some researchers say that a whole slew of pills everyday will help. Some cases of PTSD get so bad that the victim either kills themselves or others. In a video I watched the man talking said that, “The smell of diesel fuel takes him back to the middle of Afghanistan at his base.” This, to someone who has never been to war might not mean much. But that brings up memories, good and bad.
Yet, the most disturbing part of this story is that Freddy Gray’s murderers were actually charged significantly less. Their bails were set between $250,000 and $300,000. Their is a serious issue when a country values property more than the lives of it’s citizens. Even worse is the policy towards felons. During the Clinton administration, there were plans in legislation to enact policies that would cut off past and known drug felons(no matter how minor), from all forms of government support.
In an article called Dimensions of the Dark Figure of Unreported Crime, Wesley Skogan describes that there are a majority of crimes that go unreported. In fact, only 28% of crimes were reported in the late 1970s in the United States of America (Skogan, 1977). According to a study the reporting of crime peaked in1990s and has reduced ever since (StatsCanada, 2014). The prime reason for this is that people are unaware that they are committing a crime or they just overlook their deed as they feel it is not severe enough to catch ant attention. It is either people are afraid of the consequences which might occur or there is simply lack of time.
Some of the symptoms of this being a lack of confidence, a crippling need for approval, the inability to empathize and accept others as well and the inability to receive or extend love. They will do everything they can to not be in a place were they could be abandoned again. Wether it be to lie or cheat or even hurt other people. This is what I believe to be the main root of trafficking. Other reasons I have found for trafficking are kidnapping, poverty, greed, lust, abuse, control, fear, pedophilia, and the economy.
Unable to open up to others. Most of the time emotional abuse is found in relationships. The abuse of the relationship is normally possessive and overly jealous. The victim is scared to stay but yet scared to leave. Psychological abuse is normally a stepping stone to other types of physical abuse and sexual
