How A Killer Became A Killer – The Elements That Created A Motive

The growing popularity of true crime documentaries has grown over the past years. I remember growing up and watching Unsolved Mysteries as kid which didn’t gain so much popularity until recently. Having channels dedicated to these type of documentaries. Which the reasoning of the appeal is different based on the experiences they have endured throughout their lives. Some with the motive of facing a fear or a stigma. Others to get understanding of the reality of how dark the world can truly be. Others to keep in transparency, prevent them from enabling the perivial “the straw that broke the camels back.” While others as way to reassure themselves that they truly aren’t horrible people. Which one of the things that I have noticed is that everyone involved has a naive perception of the one factor that can the most righteous and most evil trait that humans all possess. Which becomes the acts of human nature.

As humans, we tend to forget that human nature is an animalistic characteristic. Which many don’t like to admit based on life experience is due to possessing the feeling of inferiority. Which in many of these brutal crimes, becomes the main motive. Which naturally people will say, “they shouldn’t of committed murder!” But after seeing these cases, there is one common element that enabled someone to kill. Which ultimately in lost hope and irrational desperation. Is what caused the person commit murder. Which I am sure you are probably wondering why I posted these previous blogs I wrote in the past? There is a reason. Because behind motive a motive, there is a story. Which lead these individuals to commit some of these unforgivable crimes. Where the motive that develops is not just the free will of the murderer. But many of he elements that occurred within the back story. Which in the end was created by the characteristic of human nature.

One thing that stood out to me after watching Netflix’s “Trials of Gabriel Hernandez,” the first thing that came into my head was that these were sins enabled by human nature. Which has government and environment being the factor that in the end caused the torturous murder of Gabriel Hernandez. Which the one elemental phrase “gay” was the reasoning that I conclude the murder occurred. And why wouldn’t it be? Because his uncle’s who were probably the better fit in taking care of this child were also stigmatized and demonized for being gay as well. Which one question that never seemed to come up in the trial against the social workers that failed to assure the child’s safety was “What where their thoughts on the LGBT community. Which the oldest of the defendants, being a former nun. Could have potentially been an act of manipulative bandwagoning that prevented this child from being taken from harms way. But in addition to that there were many factors that could also have occurred in this. Which falls on the greed for the for-profit organizations that tend to have a biased idealism from the upbringing of this and other individuals who seem to never get help. The unsaid caste system that is the tax bracket. After watching Netflix’s “Long Shot” as well as “Exhibit A” one of the most disturbing thing that had me toss and turn at night was the fact in many of these cases. Forensic Science is used against the minority defendant. Showing that discrimination isn’t just a action. It truly can ruin an innocent person’s life. In the act that is a frequent term in various series I have seen. Which is “finding the escape goat.”

After researching some of the common motives killers develop, I began to get a little excited for various reasons based on the scientific hypothesis I established. One being that with the absence of understanding human nature. Many of these motives appear to be biased based on someone’s personal belief system. The second reason being that each characteristic on determining the motive. Left out many important details that could have potentially lead to a confession if the person was probed the right questions based on these biased idealisms. Thirdly, there is premeditated bias in many of these cases, which in “Long Shot” showed dominance in. And lastly, an anti social behavior that is inferiority and fear. Which the feeling of guilt overcomes many of the people involved in the case. Whether it be the defendant or the prosecution. The feeling of “not doing enough to prevent this from occurring.” Subsides with no discrimination when these events and trials occur.

One of the things that grabbed my attention after watching “Killer Inside: The Mind of Aaron Hernandez” was the term used in this particular documentary which was a “dual personality.” Which initially is inflicted by major trauma that occurred in a person’s life. Which begs the question of “how do you stop it?” Which is not that easy for many people. Which if you really think about it many people naturally develop of a double life. Which is conditioned by the professional environments that develop in the work place. Which a common phrase used in the work place is “leave your problems at the door.” Which is phrase used to encourage people to focus on the work tasks at hand and worry about your problems when you leave. But it becomes hard when people are faced with existing severe trauma. Which in many severe events, has people working to avoid dealing with their emotions and facing the problems when they walk out the work doors. Which many use the excuse of working late to live another life they create in their escape from their emotions and their problems. Which becomes very appealing to those who are inflicted with naive stigmas that they see common in the world around them. Because in many situations when people have onset childhood trauma, don’t have the luxury to take time and deals with their problems when they leave high school. Many of them begin to see the act of internalizing as a normal behavior on coping with problems in adulthood. Not realizing that the internalized issues have them engaging in the bad behaviors they swore they wouldn’t engage in. Having it be the solution to all their problems. Which leads to the act of self medication in many cases. Which one of the biased idealisms is that murderers are alcoholics and drug addicts. Which in denial, another common occurrence in these cases. Becomes an encouraged behavior by the people that gravitate to them. Which leads to my scientific hypothesis for this blog post. What makes a killer, a killer isn’t just based on the intentions and motives the individuals have. It’s an act that over time, based on the elements that would have afforded them the help that they always needed. Is an act not only caused by the individual. But the elements that society has created as a whole. Which those in denial are the ones that may just have also been the caused to make someone, a killer become a killer.
