People gathered on Reddit to talk about the murderers they’ve met and whether they lived up to our expectations of what murderers act like. TIL there are a lot of murderers that don’t give off the ‘red flags’ we’d hope.
A true sociopath
“I’m a firefighter, so I’ve met a few on scenes (domestic abuse type situations), but one sticks out. We got dispatched for an “injured person”. When we got to the scene a guy, covered in blood, was sitting on the curb. When I asked him what was wrong with him, he said…(completely calm and casual like he was giving me directions) “Nutt’ns wrong wit me, but I kilt the fuck out dat man over der”, and he pointed to the side of the house.
I went around the corner and there was a man with a butcher knife sticking out the top of his head. I checked for a pulse but the poor guy had been stabbed a bunch of times and was obviously deceased.
We later found out he didn’t even know the man he killed, he “just wanted to see what it felt like to stab someone.”
So, to answer your question. What was he like?? A true Sociopath. And his calm and non-emotional demeanor only minutes after he had intentionally taken the life of a stranger scares the shit out of me.” — IFDRizz
“Met one in central booking when I went to jail. Didn’t find out til later from other inmates that he was a murderer, but from the first second I saw him I got a bad vibe from him. Dead look in his eyes, like there was nothing going on behind them. Creepy as hell.” — DJ_L3mtastic
