?What Makes a Serial Killer? By La Donna Beaty
Preface: I am writing this essay to discuss one of the points made in the essay, by La Donna Beaty, ?What Makes a Serial Killer?. My essay will explore one of the points she makes in reference to the possible cause and effect relationship of what makes a serial killer. In her essay, Beaty contends that one possible cause is the ?family atmosphere into which the serial killer is born.? (Beaty 182) She gives as evidence, situations such as being psychologically abused as children, having poor relationships with the male figures in their lives, being rejected or neglected by their parents, and moving repeatedly, however I do not agree with this point. Simply having a poor family environment or being abused in any manner cannot cause you to become a serial killer. In my essay, I will make use of arguments from the heart, as well as, value-based decisions as to why I do not agree with the author?s point of view.
