Behaviors that Could Predispose An Individual to Commit Murder

Do certain types of behavior lead to someone becoming a murderer? Murder is

the most horrific crime anyone can commit. Society often wonders what makes an

individual want to commit such a crime. There are many reasons. As people think, the

belief of being born a murderer is false. There are many different factors that contribute

to someone committing a crime. Certain types of behavior such as the environment
in which a person was raised in and a person?s anger, even a person?s level of income as

well can lead to someone becoming a murderer.

The level of income does contribute to the number of murder being committed. A

survey was distributed to the grade eleven students and over 50% said ?yes? that the level

of income does contribute to the number of murders being committed. Many reasons that

have been proven for the need to murder someone is for their money. For example, a

wife murders her husband for financial gain, to receive his life insurance. Although it is

not the only reason that people murder, it is one of the main reasons that can lead to a

person becoming a murderer. Less income level means that the person does not have a lot

of money; therefore taking someone?s life would be something that they would have to

resort to make ?extra cash?. Killing someone for financial gain is proven to lead someone

to becoming a murderer.

It would seem that anti-social behavior is a learned behavior. It seems common

sense that if you take a child and raise them in a violent household, chances are that they

are going to have ?issues? with their emotional well being. The environment that a person

was raised in can contribute to the probability of that person committing a murder or

other violent crimes. Our personalities begin to develop early in life, within the first few

months. The results from the grade eleven student survey shows that 95% said ?yes? that

they think the environment that a person was raised in can contribute to the probability of

that person committing a murder. In the book ?Killing for Sport? by Pat Brown,

according to FBI research, 100% of serial killers have suffered some sort of child abuse

and never established good relationships with anyone. On the other hand, there has not

been a serial killer who has come from a functional and strong family. The most

shocking fact that is true about behavior is that this terrifying crime is frequently

committed by a non-violent person. Forty-one people were surveyed and thirty-nine of

them said you do not have to only be a bad person to commit a murder. For example, in

February 1996 a fourteen year old boy, who had no criminal record or history of

violence, shot his mother to death after arguing with her over a family matter. The teen

by all accounts was a completely non-violent individual. He was a good person and was

very close to his family. Certainly his acts are evil when being compared with what

society had decided is normal and nice, but it does not necessarily mean he is evil. Child

abuse when growing up in an abusive environment proves that it can lead to someone

committing a murder. Also you don?t have to be a bad person to commit a crime or have

a criminal record or history of violence.

Everyone gets angry to a point were they are just furious, sometimes it goes that

far, but for some people it goes on further.

If a person is angry enough, they can murder someone, and people who isolate

themselves from society are more likely to commit a murder than outgoing people. In

many instances, the effects of rage can be very unpredictable and are heading for disaster.

Someone with raging anger can result in acts of extreme and gruesome violence. Results

from the survey were 83% of people said ?yes? that someone can commit a murder if

they were angry enough. For example a Nevada teen shot five of his family members:

his mother, father, both grandparents, and his ten year old sister. He was raging with

anger after having verbal confrontations with his father. Was this a good enough reason

for killing someone? Certainly to the victims, murder would not have seemed possible.
This teenagers uncontrollable rage resulted in acts of extreme violence and murder

against his own family members. Anger and uncontrollable rage are common behaviors

that people develop that can lead to murder.

It has been proven throughout the essay that certain types of behavior can lead to

someone becoming a murderer. In conclusion, history has shown us those certain types of

behavior leads to someone becoming a murderer. Murderers are often a product of their

own environment, their economic standing and an individuals tolerance for anger.
