I think not knowing this just adds to the psychotic part of the killer. This adds for an overall effective ending too. From the author’s stand point there is an internal debate to why this person wants to kill someone he openly omits to loving. If killing someone you love for just the way they look at you isn’t crazy enough, then the premeditated stalking
The author believes there are reasons such as reports of cult-related homicides will provide research date for researchers to be able to continue to research serial killers and satanism. I am in limbo on this believe of the author concerning satanism, on one had I believe we could put the money used for that research to research that needs the money. On the other hand the research may find a link, but I just they are just evil monsters. I believe anyone can be saved if they want it bad enough and I have the same opinion as the author on serial
Harry develops a “code” which consists of a formal set of rules used to enact justice on criminals who have evaded punishment by finding loopholes in the justice system. As Dexter grows into adulthood, he continues to kill by “Harry’s Code”. Yet his passion for enforcing death creates disconnect from the real Dexter Morgan and the societal norms that he is required to abide by in able to avoid detection. These conflicting interests develop an interesting and entertaining psychological cocktail. I believe that Dexter Morgan suffers from Antisocial Personality Disorder.
Although horror movies can be psychotic, gory, and may sometimes give creative ideas to criminals; criminals committed heinous crimes before the television was even invented. The history of violent crimes and horror films show how violence has been influential to horror films, but does not make a connection with horror films increasing violent behavior. The first actual murder can date back to about 4,000 B.C. when Cain murdered his brother Able (Wikipedia.com). Where did Cain get this idea from?
Villains are present in many stories that feature man-against-man conflict. Captain Torres from “Just Lather, That’s All” by Hernando Tellez could be relatable to the officer from “In The Penal Colony” by Franz Kafka. In “Just Lather, That’s All” Captain Torres gets a shave by a known rebel who loathes Torres for killing his people. The barber debates on killing Torres and comes to the realization that “Killing isn’t easy” (p. 444). In Kafka’s short story “In The Penal Colony”, The Officer is the judge of the colony and punishes men who may or may not be considered guilty by more humane men.

However, the murder of the old man is not the climax of “The Tell-Tale Heart;” it is when the police arrive at the scene of the murder (although they do not know it yet) that the unnamed protagonist reveals that he has murdered the old man and hidden his body beneath the floorboards (Poe 193). At this point the story ends and the mystery of motive unresolved. However, there are several themes dispersed throughout the story, such as themes of insanity, time, and death and destruction of others and of the self. These themes leave many scholars wondering how they fit together to understand as to why the narrator kills the old man. The theme of insanity is easily recognizable and plays a large role in “The Tell-Tale Heart” to why the protagonist murders the old man; However, in “‘The Tell-Tale Heart’ [readers only see] the results of madness, not its origins” (Symons 241).
In the essay, “The Death Penalty: Is it Ever Justified,” an admitted killer named, Joseph Carl Shaw, in an appeal wrote: ‘Killing was wrong when I did it. Killing is wrong when you do it. I hope you have the courage and moral strength to stop the killing”’ (575). In the same essay, Edward I. Koch states, “It is a curiosity of modern life that we find ourselves being lectured on morality by cold-blooded killers” (575). If a person takes another persons’ life, how dare they plea for their own!

By doing this, the reader gains a connection with Jennifer and helps them understand her motivation for her actions. This also helps Silvers arguments later on, using Jennifer’s story as a reference or an example as to why cloning is acceptable. “Narcissus Cloned” however, begins by stating Washington D.C’s concerns with the “ethical issues” and “moral values” that cloning with cause in society. Just from the beginning of both pieces, the reader can already see the bias of both authors, Silver being for cloning and Conley being strongly against it. Both Silver and Conley also disagree on the value of a cloned person’s life.
