What is the Purpose of Killing Someone? Does It Make Sense?

You may be asking yourself why do people commit murder? Human beings are one of the only species that will kill each other for reasons other than self-preservation. People commit murder to survive less often than  people who commit murder for other reasons. If we look closely at high profile mass murder and serial killer cases we will realize that these are far from what you might consider normal.There are always warning signs before murder happens.

One of the most prevalent high risk behaviors associated with violence in the United States is presence of drug and alcohol related activity. According to the latest statistics, some 40 percent of violent crimes committed today involve alcohol alone. In addition, substance abuse and alcohol are commonly associated with gang culture. Social influence can cause violent crime and murder. A Ultra-macho and glorified view of homicide can cause men and women to kill for seemingly no reason, such as petty theft. Drug use sometimes results in paranoia, increased levels of impulsivity, and poor judgment. Just stay away from illegal drug trade and those involved in drug and alcohol use and abuse.

Domestic violence does not always lead to murder. However, there is a definite pattern. Stats indicate that one out of every four murder victims are killed by a family member. Warning signs that apply to almost all domestic violence cases include when your partner insists on controlling everything, your partner yells at you, your partner calls you names, your partner destroys your belongs, your partner physically hurts you, and your partner threatens to hurt you or your loved ones. Polishing firearms, talking about murder cleanup, and threatening to commit suicide if you leave are all warning signs that you should leave.

Outbursts will normally be followed by lengthy and convincing apologies. Actions by the victims such as choosing to attend treatment classes or being with a new group of friends might appear harmless, however, they can bring on an abusive spouse to snap. It must be noted that one of the most controlling behaviors by an abusive spouse is seeing whether or not you will take your spouse back after wrongdoing. Leaving a group of friends or an abusive relationship is easier said than done. Develop a plan, and leave as fast as possible. However, even avoiding these risks does not eliminate the possibility of tragedy. If the worst does happen, there are many options which may help reduce the actual impact of the event.
