    Currently reading a book called "Why Kids Kill"

    and it's about children who have gone on school shootings. The author discusses their past history, and theorizes on what made them go on a shooting rampage. Really interesting book for those curious about what makes serial killers serial killers.

    Fascinating. Yes.

    They are extremely Fascinating. I find reading about Serial Killers, and different other Psychopaths to be a very intoxicating read. Some find it strange and or weird to read about them. When it's not strange at all, it's not even weird. I always find it so odd when someone says...

    Serial killers are probably the most

    interesting people to ever live.. from Dahmer to Gacy, Manson to Fish. The more gruesome the more interesting.. I'd give anything to talk to someone so enthralling. :)

    Is It Odd?

    As the title says, I absolutely enjoy learning

    about serial killers, watching documentaries, and movies. My favorite is Ted Bundy. I do not condone anything he did, but I find him incredibly attractive. :)

    There's an old saying,

    "You can't fight what you can't see." Although this is all good and true, it leads me to question something. What can't you see? You can see psychos, serial killers, and other "evils" of the world. Have you ever stopped to think, "Why do they kill?" The truth is, that these poor...

    I Find Serial Killers Fascinating

    I have read nearly every article on crimelibrary.com. I guess I just have a lot of morbid curiosity concerning the subject. On the other hand, maybe it runs deeper, because I am also studying to be an embalmer. Yes, I am an odd cookie. :)

    Serial Killers Are Sooo Cool

    I have really been into studying serial killers forever.  Way back in the 80's my government class had to write a paper on a famous person.  I perused the list and nobody looked interesting.  I begged her to let me do Charles Manson.  She was like Nobody has...

    I find them fascinating from a psychological

    standpoint. The fact their brains are wired entirely differently than most people is interesting. Not commending anything they have done, of course.

    The People, Not So Much The Crimes

    Serial killers, which is just yet another label like emos, preps, jocks, etc., are people. Just people. Generally, the way the media portrays serial killers annoys me by saying they're monsters, they're this, that, and the other thing. I know many people will disagree with me...

    Again on the topic of human psychology,

    serial killers such as Jeffrey Dahmer, Ted Bundy, Edd Gein, John Wayne Gacy etc interest me because although they are human but they're not like us.... They have no sense of compassion or emotion, they feel nothing but the pleasure of feeling powerful... Many people talk about...

    Mary Bell, Lizzie Borden,

    Dahmer, gacy, gein, zodiac.

    They may be Evil people but their intricate minds and malice and the fact that the full extent of their crimes is always a mystery only they know is truly fascinating!

    Omg this is so true about me.

    I don't know why but I think they're so interesting. (Not good, just fascinating.) They're always so smart. They get away with, well, murder for so long. They just do whatever they want. They don't love by society's rules. I loved Dexter too. Lol
