Do serial killers or murderers exhibit common behaviors? Based on the hundreds of crime dramas I've watched, I believe they do.
Now, I'm no expert, but I thought it might prove interesting to see if convicted serial killers and murderers ever disclosed their interest in pornography. I did this because one of Net Nanny's goals is to block Internet porn and pornography addiction is top of mind at our company.
Viewing pornography doesn't necessarily cause violent behavior; however, I believe that if someone has aggressive or violent tendencies, viewing violent pornography may exacerbate those tendencies by giving the viewer the idea that fantasies might be "normal."
The following is a summary of direct quotes or information about various convicted serial killers from the past.
The use of pornography likely will not result in the casual viewer to commit violent acts; in the cases cited above, their behaviors included pornography use. I believe pornography can have serious and lasting affects on behavior.
