Serial killer

A serial killer is typically a person who murders three or more people,A serial killer is most commonly defined as a person who kills three or more people for psychological gratification; reliable sources over the years agree. See, for example:

  • usually in service of abnormal psychological gratification, with the murders taking place over more than a month and including a significant period of time between them. while most set a threshold of three murders, others extend it to four or lessen it to two. The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), for example, defines serial killing as "a series of two or more murders, committed as separate events, usually, but not always, by one offender acting alone".

Can someone explain to me why he only got 30 years? He is a disgusting pig who deserves to rot in a jail cell. They can to extend his term, but they shouldn't of had to in the first place. He should have already been in there for life. Why is this even allowed? Disgusting. Sorry rant is over.

It's alarming to know that such dangerous people could live amongst us, and these 10 are certainly not alone. There are many unidentified serial killers in the United States, and even more unsolved murders, some still yet to be uncovered. As far as progress has come in the fields of law enforcement, and forensics, there will always be some who manage to slip through the cracks, potentially indefinitely.
