One of Pickton’s friends said that he described how he killed the victims and what he did to them. He showed him handcuffs and acted out what would happen if he had a victim there at the time. His friend said that as Pickton was telling the story it was almost as if there was a girl there. Pickton would first have sex with the victims, shortly after that they would be slaughtered and fed to the pigs so the evidence would be vanished. Pickton also had a crack cocaine addiction which may have led his

At 18, he says, he was gang-raped in prison and, he claimed, killed three of the rapists while still incarcerated. After his jail term he started preying on young girls in Peru.

For example, Ted Bundy chose many of his victims based on their resemblance to his former girlfriend who broke an engagement she had with Bundy (Fido M. 300). Another example is Jerome Henry Brudos who never felt accepted by his mother (Hale 39). This caused a feeling of humiliation and rejection for him, leading him to murder many women to transfer his hatred. Similarly, Hale describes how Richard Biegenwald murdered many men and women due to humiliation from his alcoholic father who had no interest in his wife and his son Richard (40). Lastly Robert Hansen, described as a skinny pimply-faced social reject, murdered many women due to his continual rejection in adolescence (Hale
In his book “The black book of serial killers” (2), he describes and defines the two crime characteristics. He states that depending on their IQ they are either “organized” or “disorganized”. While speaking about the “Vampire of Dusseldorf” (Peter Kürten) the profiler says, “Peter Kürten is a hardened criminal whose career spans over thirty years. When he was denounced in 1930, it is because he knew he was about to get caught.

Some laws, such as the waiting periods, have led to people getting hurt or even murdered because they had to wait for approval before completing the purchase. “On March 5, 1991 Bonnie Elmasri called a firearms instructor, worried that her husband-who was subject to a restraining order to stay away from her-had been threatening her and her children. When she asked the instructor about getting a handgun, the instructor explained that Wisconsin has a 48-hour waiting period.

He and others like Gabrielle Giffords are even bringing the parents of the children who were lost in Sandy Hook to make tearful pleas to pass the amendment. Gabrielle Giffords is yet another example that proves my theory. She was shot in the head by Jared Lee Loughner in 2011 in the middle of a constituent meeting she held. Loughner was expelled from college for disruptive behavior and was showing many signs of mental distress prior to the shooting. So much so that his parents disabled his car at night and took his shot gun away from him.
