Can you make a displaced anger rapist admit to his crimes? If so what method should be used? and how can other people who covered the abuse up be made to admit what they witnessed but did nothing about? How can i protect other children more? seen as this person is going to be released into society anytime soon. Do anger displaced rapist just pick one victim or do they pick many? can they change or is the displacement continual. The rapist was a minor/teen, his mother the coverer, victim-niece.
for a displaced anger rapist you really need to know their background to get into their head - it’s exactly what is sounds like, displaced anger. As Douglas wrote, the victim is a substitute for the actual person that the anger is geared towards. I would say that challenging the rapist that the victim was not the actual target of their rage, and following along the lines of humanizing the victim to the perp would work - and also being able to zero in on the person who they are actually so angry at would help. People cover up abuse for many different reasons, so it’s kind of difficult to offer a general opinion about making someone open up. Anger displaced rapists are scary - it makes sense that they would pick someone who represents the type of person they are so angry with. The details are so vague so it’s pretty hard to say - and threat assessment is definitely the most difficult part of forensic psych. With the victim being a young girl and the coverer being the mother, I’d be a bit worried about the mother still being in the picture after the perp’s release. Maybe more than a bit worried. if possible, I’d ask for a PO to get a really good psych assessment and have them provide some recommendations.
hey, i'm in college and for my final public speaking grade i'll be giving a speech about serial killers. what are some 6 major points i should talk about? -thanks!
Sorry - not sure how long ago you sent this, I haven’t checked in for awhile unfortunately.
but i would say - and some of these may overlap and i’m trying to answer as quickly as possible since i haven’t answered questions in so long
1 - sex crime vs non-sex crime
2 - psychotic vs non-psychotic (which could also fall into the category of organized vs disorganized possibly)
3 - childhood of the offender
4 - sadistic qualities to the crime
5 - how did the offender function as an adult (ex. employment)
6 - how did they evade capture/get caught
6 points off the top of my head.
why did you kill them people
because i thought it would stop an catastrophic earthquake in California?
Assuming that anon means donating organs? If you're in the US you just check off a box when you get your license
I think most places have an organ donation section with your driver’s license. I know you can exclude parts to donate, but I’m not sure if you can indicate that you want to donate your whole body - I thought that anon was probably talking about donating your body to science. Maybe you can just put it in your will and your lawyer will take care of it:)
Wait body parts in Niagara? WTF did I miss something?
Yes - I think tourists spotted it at the bottom of the Falls, they were probably on the Maid of the Mist - the torso of a woman. No other body parts have been found.
I have asked this yesterday but i don't think you have responded or if you have i didn't see your response. I suffer from Borderline Personality Disorder and i'm having trouble with the law. I haven't done anything wrong, these charges were a case of revenge caused by a failed relationship. Do you think having BPD might be bad for me during my trial? Should I talk about it or should I hide it?
I did respond - if I’ve had a bunch of anons I usually go back and delete them after a couple hours or so.
It could be used against you or for you - it depends on the circumstances. I can think of scenarios where it would go either way. You should definitely discuss it with your lawyer and see what their opinion is.
So what would people who kill accidentally fall under? (ie: runs someone over or something of the sort)
Probably manslaughter (which means you unintentionally killed someone without malice)- the categories can overlap - often the culprit will be charged with the highest, most severe charge possible - then there is always room to deal it down or for the jury to decide on a lesser charge if it goes to trial. The names are different sometimes depending on where you live - the Canadian Criminal has a section called Murder, Manslaughter, and Infanticide (section 229) which involves “culpable homicide”, then section 232 goes on to describe murder reduced to manslaughter: “Culpable homicide that otherwise would be murder may be reduced to manslaughter if the person who committed it did so in the heat of passion caused by sudden provocation”
Can you explain the degrees of murder?
For the dooley case, why was it randy and not teego? i mean its a HORRIBLE case and it makes me absolutely sick but what made the parents choose randy as a victim? just like why gertrude chose sylvia as her victim and not jenny?
I have no idea what made them target the one child. I’m assuming that it usually because that child is either the weakest (so easiest to target) or a threat in some way.
I don’t know much about the Dooley family other than the abuse that Randal suffered, so I can say why they would have targeted him and not his brother. It sounds like the stepmother was the worst abuser - and it is actually more common for the female to be more vicious and sadistic than her male partner!
Sorry, very green on a lot of the criminal stuff. Is there anything specific/interesting/'something you ought to know' when it comes to con men?
Don’t trust them:P
Do you mean anything they do that could tip you off? I think first off all, if you’ve got that feeling in your gut that something is just not right, that they’re glib and insincere, trust your instinct. Promising you something that seems unrealistic, or being too flattering, etc. - don’t assume it’s just because you’ve met the nicest man in the world.
If you could spend a day with any criminal, talking and doing regular stuff, knowing that they wouldn't harm you in any way, who would you pick?
What was interesting about Magnotta's behaviour? Sorry, I haven't watched the video and I don't think I will any time soon, but I'm curious
At first, he was kind of stroking Jun Lin’s cheek.
During the stabbing (Jun Lin was dead at this point) he did not seem to be enjoying it - he seemed very hesitant for most of it. He certainly wasn’t getting excited by it and worked up.
I seemed more concerned with putting on a show than doing it for his own pleasure - so I think the fact that he was making this video people would see satisfied him, not the killing or dismembering.
Also, after the music stops, you can hear a beeping. The only thing it sounds like it could be is a heart rate monitor - which is perhaps the most interesting part of it.
would you consider yourself as a hybristophile?
Approximately how many female serial killers that you know of had sexual motives? I know that female serial killers are extremely rare and I'm just curious how many of them had the same motives of their male counterparts. Thank you!
I know of one study that showed that only 10% of female serial killers reported a sexual motive for their crimes. I would say that number is probably impossible to tell, since there are so many that deny have any sexual motivation for the crimes. I think Carol Bundy and Charlene Gallego clearly enjoyed what they were doing with their significant others. You would probably have a good argument for naming Myra Hindley. I have heard claims that there was a sexual component to Elizabeth Bathory’s crimes.
Gwendolyn Graham and Cathy Wood were two women who killed together (in the nursing homes they worked in) and there was a sexual excitement created by the murders. If I recall correctly they would collect souvenirs from the victims and use them to relive the murders, which they found sexually exciting.
Karla Homolka - while I think there’s no question she enjoyed their crimes, I’m not sure that the excitement for her was of a sexual nature.
Even if my suspicions are correct about many of the female serial killers, there would still be very few.
I read an article recently about female psychopathy, and the myths about females, psychopathy, and violence that are largely based on social stereotypes - and it mentioned how the sexual satisfaction from violence is probably extremely underrated - damn it, I can’t remember what that was called!
There are better statistics I think when it comes to sexual assault/abuse as opposed to sexual murders. One British study showed that when sexual abuse is committed by a male and female partners, it is often the women who take the lead - AND, women are more likely to use excessive force. In a survey of 50 convicted female sex offenders, half the women reported that they derived sexual pleasure from inflicting pain on their victims. Another study showed that 25% of sex offenders are female.
Probably most troubling, is that victims of childhood sexual abuse when the abuser was a female, report the abuse to be more traumatic. There is an alarmingly high rate of sexual abuse by females in the backgrounds of rapists, sex offenders and sexually aggressive men - 59% (Petrovich and Templer, 1984), 66% (Groth, 1979) and 80% (Briere and Smiljanich, 1993).
Sorry, long answer, but I find it a very interesting topic!
Hellooo~ What do you think about Karla Homolka? I still don't understand why she did the things she did, at all. Like as to why she would let her husband rape her sister.. x_x
I think she enjoyed it.
