N’Kia West April 22, 2014 English 1010 Professor Jones The Mind Behind the Crime There are many known serial killers out in this world, and of course, these serial killers are not favorited by people. Many people do not know exactly why they kill, though there are simple reasons, maybe because of their childhood, not getting the love and support that any child should get, or maybe because of a mental disorder. But what makes a serial killer conceive of such malicious acts and with disregards of morality and consequence? What drives someone to such drastic measures to go as far as killing another? Do they do it for pleasure and ease?
Serial killers are not just murders they are usually intelligent people with a history of abuse that motivates them to kill. Serial murder victims die as the killers try to regain control of his or her own life by controlling their victim’s life and death. The term “ Serial Killer” has always been loosely defined it usually means the sexual attack and murder of men, women, and children. Even before American society became aware of serial murder in the late 1880’s researchers had begun to classify multiple killers and assign labels and certain characteristics to them. A serial killers has also been defined as all offenders who have killed three or more people at different times over weeks, months, or years.
Gun control has always been a controversial topic. The deadly trigger has been known to kill many people through accidents and cold blooded murders. Some people fear that guns cause crimes and negatively impact society and as a result, feel that there should be some sort of ban or restriction placed on guns. However, others fear for their own security and believe that guns are needed for self defense and the restriction of guns will only go against their right to bear arm, as promised by the Second Amendment. Guns are fairly popular these days.
These criminals deserve the worst death penalty for breaking American laws. They know that there are consequences and that they will get caught in the long run. Now many people argue if the death penalty is constitutional and there have been many controversies over the death penalty. Argument is: Whether the United States should keep this punishment or abolish it completely. Very few nations such as The United States, Iran, China, and other nations leave the death penalty as an option depending on the victim then there are a few other nations that completely abolished the law of killing someone by using the death penalty.
Gun Control The subject of gun control is very thought provoking and a very touchy issue, just mentioning the term gun control can strike a fire in many people and in many different ways. Some people look at gun control and see it as the answer to all the crime problems in America, others see it as the beginning of a tyrannical government, some look at the second amendment as just a way to project the sport of target shooting and hunting. The purpose of this paper is to provide evidence as to whether or not gun control is constitutional, prove whether or not guns create crime, and what limitations on owning a gun are constitutional and what is stepping on a person’s right to bear arms. There is no better place to start then the beginning,
Many people wonder what it takes to make a serial killer. Is there something defective in that person that means that they have the ability to commit murder without remorse or somehow enjoy the suffering of others? Do childhood abuse and other mistreatment mean that someone will grow up to be serial killers? The conflicting information about Bundy’s childhood does little to help answer these questions. On the surface, Bundy’s childhood does not appear to have the level of child abuse or neglect that one normally associates with a serial killer.
Journal Entry (Personal Choice): Critical Reading Mayberry Author- Josh Sugarmann Page numbers 6 Summary- The article I read was called the NRA is Right it actually mainly shows how the author is against the right to bear arms. All he keeps bringing up is statistical rates that the NRA and police are applying to. He rather keep his own opinion to himself and just go off of what other people are say to try and show that guns are not the best choices to be held and used.

The award winning documentary investigates Michael Moore’s suggestion for the reason behind the Columbine Massacre and other violent events in the US due to the gun policy.

If someone kills a person he or she will be punished, but the government can kill people not only without punishment, but it is also enforced. What type of statement is this saying to American citizens or other countries, if we say this country will murder its own people? Not only that a country that supports the most horrible way to punish a person? Innocence and the Death Penalty states “The vast majority of countries in the world have now abolished the death penalty in law or practice. The numbers are as follows: Abolitionist for all crimes: 96, Abolitionist for ordinary crimes: 9, Abolitionist in practice: 34, Total abolitionist in law or practice: 139, Retentions: 58” (Innocence and the Death Penalty).
Due to Dorner’s various act being linked together as a result of a singular event by classification he fits the mold of a spree killer. By definition a spree killer is an assailant who moves from place to place in rapid succession and who commits multiple murders at each location. In Dorner’s case, victims involved thru the span of his stint included law enforcement officers, their families, and civilians misidentified as the suspect (injured by police not Dorner). His M.O. (Modus operandi) was to take lethal action against those involved in sullying his reputation.
