“Last time I slept all night with a girlfriend it was 1982. Girls and women don’t even give me a second look ANYWHERE.”
In 2009, George Sodini opened fire at an LA Fitness centre because he was angry that women always rejected him. Over a nine month period, he blogged about his sexual frustration on his website, complaining about the lack of initmacy he was having. Sodini was arrogant and believed that he was incredibly good-looking, and once wrote: “Who knows why (I get rejected)? I am not ugly or too weird.”
On August 4th, he entered a women’s aerobics class at the LA Fitness center in the town of Collier. He put his duffle bag containing weapons on the floor, turned off the lights, and took out two semiautomatic pistols. He then fired at least 52 shots at the 12 victims before shooting himself dead.
Before he killed anyone, serial killer Ted Bundy would go on “dry-runs” to test his skills in serial murder. He would pick up a woman, terrorise her, but release her unharmed just to see if he was capable enough. In later interviews, he compared killing to learning how to be a better mechanic or chef. He told interviewers that he thought he had a Ph.D. in serial killing and that he took time to select the perfect victim- both physically and mentally. When asked about how he selected a victim, he stated that: “I have known people who…radiate vulnerability. Their facial expressions say ‘I am afraid of you.’ These people invite abuse… By expecting to be hurt, do they subtly encourage it?”.
Cult leader Charles Manson was described by prison psychiatrists as being “desperate for high status and securing some kind of love.” At one point, Manson’s behaviour deteriorated so drastically that he was classed as “only safe under supervision”.
Richard Ramírez, speaking on the concept of evil. Reading off a script he had written himself, he told the interviewer: “Evil has always existed, the perfect world most people seek shall never come to pass. And it’s gonna get worse.”
