What I'm trying to say is depending on whether it's nurture or nature you'll get very different monsters. Those messed up by people, nurture, are usually pretty dysfunctional and easily spotted/avoided. I firmly believe genetics plays a role when monsters choose to construct a persona, nature. They are disciplined, conniving and for the most part they feel it's their birth right, they don't self loathe.
Those like the BTK killer are caught because of their arrogance/confidence not because of any visible dysfunction. Some are more skilled and never get caught. Imo there's more going on with them than past abuse. Something entirely different is happening in their brain making them the most deadly of all. You'll never see them coming until it's too late.
what makes the difference between those that only think about committing a crime and those that actually do it?

I don't think we are "creating" more- we just have more people, the percentage is roughly the same. (imo)
Also with the internet, we have easier access to this info.

They aren't really created.. more just born. Granted there are factors like child abuse which will contribute to creating violent psychopaths.
Do you think that some people are just born evil?
