7 Infamous, Deadliest Criminals Proving They Were Not Born Sinner

Crime is not something that is inherent in an individual. Though we all have been well acquainted with the idea that nobody is born a criminal, we have at the same time learned to type cast the criminals. There is no denying the fact that one or the other external/social factor is involved in becoming of a criminal. 

Poverty has been attributed popularly to draw people into the world of crime, as it appears to be the most readily available survival technique. The survival techniques gradually magnify from petty offenses to grave and heinous crimes. An alternative theory, however, suggests that social factors are a mere catalyst to trigger the criminal thought process.

Here is a list of some famous serial killers and their back stories

#1. Charles Manson- Charles Manson was associated with several murders, including the murder of an actress, Sharon Tate. Manson was born in Ohio, to a 16-year-old prostitute. He was sent to the boys’ school soon and was later abandoned by her mother. He started with petty offenses while he was living on the streets. The probation reports described his psychological state as suffering from a "marked degree of rejection, instability and psychic trauma" and "constantly striving for status and securing some kind of love."

They Are Made By Their Own Environment

Criminals are made in the environment they are grown in, nature/nurture. They also, like any human, learn from the people in their lives who have a direct impact. Their criminal tendencies may stem from a traumatic experience in their childhood or potentially from their interpretations of what they learn from society as they grow up. Take the many recent shootings for example. If news outlets would STOP SPREADING FEAR, then becoming the "next school shooter" wouldn't be "cool." Hopefully this answers your question.

childhood plays a crucial role in determining how we are going to turn out. most of these killers, if not all, especially Ted Bundy and Aileen had troubled early years!!
