Criminal Profiling Topic of the Day: AIDS prevents Solving of Murders

There is one odd side effect of AIDS awareness that few people are aware exists. Some rapists and serial killers are terrified of becoming HIV positive and so they use condoms in the commission of their crimes. They may not actually be using condoms to thwart identification by law enforcement or to prevent the linkage of crimes, but simply because they don’t want to get a disease. How about that for getting the message across about safe sex?Yes, while serial killers don’t mind taking the lives of others, most have a real aversion to losing their own. Consequently, they don’t take on victims that will fight back, they avoid death penalty states, and some wear condoms to protect themselves from contracting HIV. Of course, some attack children and those they consider possible innocents, but, if they can’t get those victims, a condom will do.

The number of serial homicide cases without semen evidence is on the rise. While the missing semen may be due to the inability of the killer to function sexually or that he has reach such a level of experience that he is careful not to leave DNA, we shouldn’t jump to that conclusion. It may just be that he is a health nut.

Pat,

This, issue about them protecting themselves from getting aids, really flushes the argument "You can't put him to death, because he wants to die!” argument down the toilet. Or this argument “He committed murder because he wanted the state to execute him!"

They don't want to die, they want to make OTHERS die.

It's so funny, some of these thug-hugger types are always saying, "He wanted the state to execute him. He was suicidal."

If they want to be executed, why don't they kill themselves? Instead, everyone around them is dropping like flies.
