Yes, it happens, and probably many criminals have mental issues but you'd be surprised at the amount of patients I see come into the psychiatric ward I work at (I am an assistant psychiatric nurse at a secure unit), and I see these people trying to talk doctors into sectioning them and surprise surprise, they have a court case coming up for murder or rape etc.....People use mental illness as an excuse, at times, to hide behind....

I think there are just as many murders commited out of lust, jealousy, a moment of rage.....Surely not all are committed by schizophrenics and Personality disordered people? And in fact, in my experience, a lot of those people with genuine mental illness are more a danger to themselves than to others.

I tend to agree with this reply.
I have to agree as well but will add alcohol and drugs also play a part in this.
Belief bias occurs when we make illogical conclusions in order to confirm our preexisting beliefs. Belief perseverance refers to our tendency to maintain a belief even after the evidence we used to form the belief is contradicted.

I agree with Teufel. Remember, the question is about serial offenders and people like Hitler and Jones.

I remember hearing once on a program about Jonestown that one of the survivors remembered that the afternoon, just before they started the mass suicides, that there was a horrible dark cloud and storm that came up suddenly. Although that was the only statement, it certainly seemed that the person was alluding to an evil force that overtook the area.

IMO the only evil force in Jonestown was Jim Jones himself.

Hilter was mentioned a couple of times. Some say he was involved in the occult, the deep, dark black magic witchcraft. He also should have had something to do with Aleister Crowley.

Without any credentials, I believe it is more likely that the serial killers are mentally ill when they start. And the attitudes, and dark emotions attract demons. It would seem the killing leads to demon possession, or possibly just demon oppression. Any way you look at it, they are all sick.

Murderers may have any number of motives for their killings but the question is reffering to Serial Killers and I think that such cases are always mentally ill. They may be 'sane' as described by the Law (i.e. they can sign their names etc.) and often serial killers are organised and systematic. The obsession with a certain vic profile is not ordinary or normal and thus it's classified as mentaly illness.
I do believe in posession to an extent and maybe serial killers are possessed but even then their mentality is negativly different and so categorized as mentally ill.

They look really sick,which comes out from demonic possession but they do not look at this that way.They all think that their purpose is to be special and do something that they think is their purpose.They often come out like that from dysfunctional families or something that has been a trigger for becoming one of them(maybe a demon or evil).Also they have no conscience or moral so this is the thing that is most weird to me.

The page below was interesting, most serial killers are 20-30 ..... now the strange part.... and in the USA. Their main motive is sex even if it doesn't take place, manipulation, and power. They may be disappointed in the murder so they search out others to try and find the experience they are looking for.

This I find extremely alarming ..... what is happening here for this to be happening?

Throughout the last three decades the US serial killer rate has risen 940% and it is estimated that by the next millennium it will claim an average of 11 lives a day. Serial Murder is an epidemic, there are at least 35 serial killers active in the USA today who claim one third of the annual murder rate. The USA has 6% of the world's population yet it has three quarters of all serial killers. Not only are serial killers appearing in more numbers in the US but all over the world countries are terrorized by serial killers which are appearing in more numbers year and year after.

I know that the mindset of someone like this seems to be addicted to the whole process of killing. That's why in serial murders the method is always the same...if it works, stay with it.

What is scary about serial killers is that they are not often caught until many people have lost their lives. They often go about their day to day activities, the people closest to them never knowing what they have done.

I remember reading the first Anne Rule book I ever got my hands on..."The Stranger Beside Me" about Ted Bundy. Anne had known Ted Bundy...had worked with him and sat next to him...talked to him and even became friendly accquaintances with him. And then when he turned out to be a serial killer...she became obsessed with finding out what makes people do this. While her books have been very informative and she has extensively covered the murders in recent history that have made us cringe...I don't think she is any closer to an answer of why the numbers are rising.
