Children And Violence

Children can be violent by nature, if they are psychopaths. A psychotic serial killer is someone who has viciously murdered more than three people. Their killing is motivated by a psychological gratification. Reasons for such killings include things like financial gain, anger, attention, and thrill. The victims often share traits such as sex, age, occupation, race, or appearance. In the United States psychopath serial killers often share similar traits. These include that on average, they are in the 20’s or 30’s, white males, who come from middle class or lower class backgrounds. Their IQ’s dictate that they are abnormally bright, though they often have difficulty staying employed.

Coming from unstable families, they fathers often abandoned the family leaving a domineering mother to care for them. Psychopath serial killers will often have alcoholic family histories, as well as criminal and psychiatric family histories. A family member usually abused them either physically, emotionally, or sexually, leaving them prone to high suicide attempts. Of all of the psychopath serial killers in the United States, over 60% of them still wet their beds after twelve years of age. Often they were bullied as a child, leaving them involved in the torturing of animals and interested in sadomasochistic pornography as well as fetishism and starting fires. They begin their criminal activity with petty theft, fraud, or vandalism.

Psychopathic serial killers cannot recognize other people as worth any compassion. While psychopathology used to mean moral insanity, it now means that the person suffers from sociopathology or from an antisocial personality disorder. Sociopaths often suffer from biological, sociocultural, and interpersonal irregularities. Psychopaths display irrational antisocial behavior as well as purposeless behavior, a lack of conscience, and a lack of emotions that experience little to no fear. Environmental factors contributing to sociopaths and psychopaths include having lost a parents at a young age, being deprived of physical touch or love as a child, as well as having inconsistent discipline. This means that the father was the authoritative figure who was only stern and the other was the nurturing soft figure leading the child to late authority and to manipulate the soft mother. Another major environmental factor would include having hypocritical parents who would present a happy family image to the public while belittling the child in private.

Some people argue that they are natural born killers, but there is no gene for killing, only genetic tendencies attributed to violent behavior. In early childhood, psychopathic infants develop a split which includes the soft vulnerable inside and the hard exterior which pushes away the neglect or the painful experiences. This creates an expectation for all experiences to be painful, turning the child inward. This inward child then becomes distrusting of everything and refuses to allow anything in, no longer identifying with parents but seeing them as malevolent strangers. From here the child no longer feels empathy and views human nature as nothing more than a nuisance. Instead of developing bonds with the loving mother, the child experiences a passive stranger as the mother or an aggressive predator.
