I have taken recently to watching the Sky Crime channel and it has been fascinating stuff indeed! It is the channel for true crime. Real murderers, serial killers and evil killers. Stories about how the cases were solved. It has a number of different series types and genre styles available to the avid viewer from killers to cops, to border control to murders and so on.
It does make your mind tick as you sit down and watch how murderers have killed their victims and how the police forces have worked to secure convictions …. and it makes you wonder how hard it might be in today’s world with forensic sciencing the way it is and has progressed especially in more recent years to perform and commit the Perfect Murder and get away with it and escape detection and capture?
I recently read an article which sparked a lot of controversy over here in the UK when Katharine Birbalsingh who had once been labelled Britain’s Strictest Teacher’ suggested that all children are born with ‘original sin’. In simple terms, she suggested that all children were born bad and through education and love from parents only then did they learn a moral code of conduct.
She recently said …. “If children are left to it, they will not learn anything, including moral behaviour. They need to be taught. Toddlers fight over toys until they are shown how to share. They learn gratitude or sacrifice when taught. This is not inside them.”
This too made me think …….. the fact is , l can see where she is coming from to a degre. We all follow an ‘ethical ruling’ that is imprinted and conditioned into our systems from a young age and yet, not everyone receives that and they don’t turn out to be murderers and killers and we have seen time and time again, ‘ordinary people living ordinary lives’ have become ‘abnormal’ in their behaviour towards other human beings.
I think all of us, could potentially have an evil streak, or a fight for survival line inside us. Serial killers are not born that way, life shapes them, environmental elements mold them into who they become and certain triggers can activate the evil trigger within us all – despite what people say, l think people if given no other choice could potentially become a killer or a murderer … you never know.
Years ago, l recall reading a study that basically said humans are almost designed to kill other human beings, it was part of our history, our evolution, we have simply adapted differently from our ancestors who didn’t think twice about ‘bumping’ others off to solve problems, or using violence to get their way or matters sorted … quickly!
I even remember reading something in Pinterest which suggested that every day we walk past at least seven psychopaths … but l am pretty sure that was meant to be funny …. and yet!
I sometimes wonder also, those who write such ghoulish crime stories that involve murder … could they, would they, did they??
Anyway … all that aside … to the questions of today!
Could you comit the ‘perfect murder’ and if you could, do you think you could get away with it …. easily?
Now you could answer with a yes and a no and leave it at that OR … you could say what you think your perfect murder would be and how you plan to escape detection and conviction!
Yes, yes, of course if you told us, you’d have to kill us … no problem, we’ll take the risk –
Now Fess Up!!! Could you do it …. Or not?
