Jeffrey Dahmer: The Milwaukee Monster

It was May 21st, 1960 when Jeffrey Lionel Dahmer was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin to Lionel Dahmer and Joyce Flint. Dahmer was raised there as an only child. He was a child that was full of life, interested in everything you would assume your average boy to be interested in. He loved to wrestle with his father and help him around the house all the time. Outgoing and curious, Dahmer was everything any set of new parents could ask for and more. One thing interesting was his early fascination for animals. He loved to help his dad clear the animal bones from under the house where animals had died. As the bones were dropped in to a bucket, Dahmer was overwhelmed with joy at the sounds they made. As he grew older, the fascination of the sound of bones became a fascination with turning animals in to just bone - he began to kill them. In 1968, Dahmer’s family moved to Akron, Ohio to a small town call Bath in the Bath Township. That same year, he became a brother to David Dahmer. It seems as though from that point on things started going downhill for Dahmer. As he neared junior high, Dahmer became much more introverted. Although he was always the class clown throughout both junior high and high school, students still knew something seemed to be off with Jeffrey Dahmer. As Dahmer grew from the boy he was in to the teenager he was becoming, he was going through a hard time in his life. His parents marriage had been seriously falling apart for the past couple years and this took a toll on Dahmer. He took up drinking at a very early age and became an alcoholic. Dahmer drank continuously, both in school and at home. He graduated from Revere High School in 1978, and only a month later, on July 24th, his parents destructive marriage finally came to an official end. His mother left and moved back to Wisconsin with his…...

The Sexual Lesbic Revolution Sheila Jeffreys

...La Revolución Sexual lesbiana SHEILA JEFFREYS En los años 80 se produjo un repentino entusiasmo por la obra de los Maestros del postmodernismo -Lacan, Foucault y Derrida- seguido de su incorporación a la teoría feminista. Algunas críticas feministas han señalado que este hecho causó cierta despolitización del feminismo. En el campo de la teoría lesbiana y gay la obra de las grandes figuras masculinas del postmodernismo, así como la de otros teóricos inspirados por ellos, ha sido acogido con más entusiasmo aún. No debe sorprender que la llamada teoría lesbiana-y-gay, a saber, aquella que homogeneiza a lesbianas y varones gays, resulte tan atractiva a los ojos de estos últimos. Todo lo que remita de forma demasiado explícita al feminismo es contemplado con suspicacia. En el momento actual el proyecto de elaborar una teoría lesbiana independiente aparece como una empresa extravagantemente separatista. Las estrellas de la nueva teoría lesbiana-y-gay, Judith Butler y Diana Fuss, son ambas mujeres, aunque se dedican a reciclar un feminismo fundamentado en los Maestros postmodernos -en su mayoría gays- que no hiera la sensibilidad de los gays. No es una empresa fácil. ¿Cómo lograr, pongamos por ejemplo, que el fenómeno del travestismo se considere no ya aceptable sino revolucionario en la teoría lesbiana y gay, cuando ha sido un tema sumamente controvertido para la teoría feminista desde que las lesbianas se distanciaron del movimiento de liberación gay? Sólo se logra con un......

Jefferey Dahmer

...Jeffrey Dahmer Jeffrey Dahmer was a notorious serial killer who killed about seventeen young males and boys. Most of the victims were African-American or other minorities, but they were also homosexuals. Dahmer, a 31-year-old good-looking man from Milwaukee, would cruise gay bars and choose his victims by their skin color (mostly dark), attractiveness, and their physique. Jeffrey Dahmer would lure them into his apartment and that’s where he would begin his infatuation with his supposedly new lover. Dahmer would perform some of the most horrifying acts a human being could ever commit. In some cases Dahmer would drill holes in the victims head and then pour acid through the skull, he would keep the heads as a “souvenir”. He would also tear the bodies’ limb from limb and keep a certain body part from the victim to remind him of their endless beauty. Jeffrey Dahmer was a sick and twisted man. In his eyes he believed he did no such thing wrong. He blamed his outrageous behavior on alcohol. But one thing Jeff Dahmer had was wits because he did know how to out smart a judge. Dahmer at one time spoke on his own defense and the things he would say would make you think twice maybe he is truly sorry for his actions and deserves a second chance or maybe it’s just an extraordinary act which he plays well. The judge fell right into his trap in which lead Dahmer to be on probation for five years, serve a sentence for a year in the House of Correction and Dahmer would still be able to...

Serial killers tend to murder strangers rather than people they know.   Their victims normally have something in common such as age, race, educational background, gender, occupation, or facial features.   Serial killers normally have an image of the perfect victim, but will sometimes settle for anyone, if he cannot find his preference.      Victims who are from broken homes, runaways, prostitutes, and they who suffer from drug and alcohol abuse normally fall prey to serial killers.   Serial murders sometimes share common characteristic; however, their approach to killing might differ.   According to Fahui Wang, some serial killers are organized and others are disorganized.   Some serial killers are very organized, and they plan their attacks with care; they tend to be very selective in choosing their victims, and oftentimes, follow the same patterns when committing a crime.   Their crimes are planned in detail, and they involve various ways in which the murders will occur.  ......

Jeffrey Dahmer

...Jeffrey Dahmer Reed Criminology Instructor Steven Cable Word count: 787 words Abstract Jeffrey Dahmer was an intensely troubled child who grew up in an environment rejecting him fuelling his loneliness. As an adult his instability only escalated. This has revealed that parental upbringing is of core importance in a child’s development of social skills. As seen with Jeffrey Dahmer he did not receive that socialization bond be it with his parent or other people in his life. All the way through his childhood, Jeffrey Dahmer was ignored and developed a way of perceiving himself as an outsider, rejected by society. This loneliness and sense of rejection grew until it aggravated his compulsion to commit the monstrous crimes of murder, necrophilia, and cannibalism. As seen from his biography he didn’t have close relationships that could have deterred him from committing the crime as the social control theory suggests. In his loneliness Jeffrey filled that void with dismembering animals, a behavior later seen in his crimes. It can thus be concluded that creation and nurturing of social bonds are very essential in childhood socialization and in the development of stable psychological state of mind. Jeffrey Dahmer’s Criminal Theories Jeffrey Dahmer has had many different theories applied to him, such as the social control theory, rational choice theory, and many other psychological theories. The sociological theory of deviance that best fits the criminal behavior of......

...Jeffery Dahmer Hannah Bialas CRJ 308: Psychology of Criminal Behavior Instructor: David Ojo October 6, 2014 Introduction Everyone knows that there are many killers out there in the world but some were made famous because of what they did. Jeffery Dahmer is a famous case that really has an interesting story behind it. Behind every killer there is something that made them that way which could include many aspects of one’s life. The Jeffery Dahmer case has many aspects as well as different theories as to what made him the way he was and made him to the things he did. Childhood History Jeffery Dahmer was first born and go little attention from his parents but then another child came along and he did not like getting less attention than he already did. After he was no longer the only child that is when the problems started. “He was born into a loving household and was a happy child till he was six, when his brother was born and he received some minor surgery then he became increasingly insular and lacking in self-confidence” (The Dominion Post, 2007). Soon after the family ended up in Ohio which made Jeffery Dahmer’s life darker because he became less social or more insecure and ended up with no friends because of these issues.

Since sex[1] and gender[2] are controversial topics that have been discussed by scholars such as Simone de Beauvoir, Michel Foucault or Judith Butler to name only a few, it can be assumed that the depiction of hermaphroditism in a Pulitzer Prize-winning novel like Middlesex might have an influence on how readers think of the topic itself. Due to this day especially hermaphrodites and intersexuals lack in most countries representation in form of the possibility of being recognized as a third sex. Does Eugenides mirror this situation and depicts Cal as in fact frowned upon, too? So far there are only a handful of countries that......

Jeffery Dahmer

...A Jeffrey Dahmer Story Tyler Jones Understanding Criminal Minds December 2, 2014 Jeffrey Dahmer Fantasies can be strengthened by great amount of sex drive that assists in unusual behaviors; sexual murders are based on fantasies. The purposes of the fantasies are to take control of the victims; the killer wants the control because he/she has sought it since childhood. It is known that very few serial killers have healthy relation with their parents. “Jeffrey Dahmer was born on May 21,1960, in Milwaukee; his parents were Lionel and Joyce Dahmer. Joyce had problems during her pregnancy and started taking drugs to treat her sickness” (Fischoff, 1996). After Jeffrey was born he had difficulties with his legs and needed help with his legs for four months. Despite this problem he seemed to grow up as a healthy beautiful child, but at one point his mother started to refuse to breast-feed him. Since she could not handle breast-feeding, this increased her consumption of antidepressant and psychotropic drugs. “After a few years the couple moved six times in their first years of marriage. In 1962, the family moved to Iowa. Lionel had been accepted to a doctoral program in chemistry; in this period Jeffrey got sick very often and required several injections to treat the infections” (Fischoff, 1996). “When he started preschool his interest for insects and animals was starting to take form, in fact, he helped his father in nursing a owl they found.

General Electric: from Jack Welch to Jeffrey Immelt

...work force who were deemed least useful by their managers. Creating the Best Practice movement and Work Out (meetings that aided in brainstorming solutions to company problems) were innovative programs that helped him catapult GE toward success. He retired after two decades as GE’s CEO and nominated Jeffrey Immelt as his successor. Jeffrey Immelt became the ninth man to lead General Electric in 2001. He abandoned Welsh’s leadership approach and was said to be “less a commander than a commanding presence” (Rowe and Guerrero, 2013, p. 190). He focused on long term strategies rather than setting pinpoint earning targets, as his predecessor had. By aiding service growth in some of the company’s divisions and investing strategically, Immelt achieved unprecedented revenue growth in key foreign markets. This situation is best described as an evaluation case, rather than a decision or problem. Questions Some of the key questions in this case are: 1. What parts of Jack Welch’s leadership strategy were effective? 2. What mistakes did Jack Welch make that Jeffrey Immelt should avoid? Hypothesis By learning from Jack Welch’s leadership style and improving on his mistakes, Jeffrey Immelt can ensure the growth and success of General Electric. Proof and action Welch was a highly competent and successful leader whose business strategy helped grow GE’s market capitalization by 27 times (Rowe and Guerrero, 2013). He used components of the path goal theory, in which leaders......

Jeffrey Smart in a Modern Day Renassance

...Analyse how a chosen artist provides evidence to a modern day Renaissance. --- The Renaissance art movement has greatly impacted the modern world, with concepts and techniques from the time period still appearing in artworks today. Jeffrey Smart shows a rebirth of ideas, methods and themes that have previously been seen in other art movements, such as the Renaissance, Realism, Impressionism and Post-Impressionism. He was an artist heavily inspired by the Renaissance period, and this shows particularly through his works: "The Traveller", "Labyrinth", "Portrait of Bruce Beresford", and "Turn-off To Dandenong". Smart shows a connection between the modern era and the Renaissance through the similarities of his work and the works of artists from that time period, such as Piero della Francesca, Filippo Brunelleschi, Leonardo Da Vinci and Johannes Vermeer. However, Smart’s works also show similarities to paintings by Vincent Van Gogh and Paul Cézanne, alongside those by Peter Paul Ruben and Jean Francois-Millet. These works provide evidence to a use of techniques and materials such as foreshortening, one point-perspective and oil painting - all exceedingly similar to those of the Renaissance art movement. Smart, by sampling these procedures and concepts from previous art movements and bringing them back to life, creates a new, modern day renaissance. Smart was heavily inspired by artists of the Renaissance period, particularly Piero della Francesca (Rompaey, 2013). Smart......

Dahmer, Jeffrey

...Mia Alonzo Mr. Oliverez English 2 8 May 2016 Jeffrey Dahmer There are plenty of serial killers in American history. Devastating as it may be, they’re still a part of it. There have been hundreds of serial killers documented and identified over the decades in America (statistics), but there have been a handful that have stood out from the rest. One of them was a man named Jeffrey Lionel Dahmer. Given the circumstances of his murders, his psychological profile, or just the initial public shock of it all, it all stems from where he started- his childhood. He stood out from the rest of America’s 20th century serial killers, and for a good reason. Jeffrey Dahmer was known as as The Milwaukee Cannibal and The Milwaukee Killer. These nicknames, given by the media provided a hook, and ensured their story be read or heard. He he was convicted of rape, murder, taking the lives 17 men and boys throughout a span of 13 years, from 1978 to 1991 (CBS). Jeffrey Dahmer’s killings involved necrophilia, cannibalism, the preservation of body parts, and lobotomy (crime museum). Lobotomy was a psychosurgery procedure that involved inserting a long metal “pick” of sorts and inserting it through either the nose, or through the gap above the eye to the to the frontal lobe of the brain. It was used to treat, ironically, severe psychological disorders in the 1940’s and 50’s (How Stuff Works). He was obviously not performing one for medical reasons, but instead just to satisfy his sexual......

Jeffrey Dahmer

...Jeffrey Dahmer was born May 21st, 1960, the first child for Lionel and Joyce Dahmer, after a difficult pregnancy that had Joyce on various prescription drugs. Jeff and his little brother David were raised in Bath Township, Ohio. Unlike many other killers, Jeffreys parents were not abusive. Joyce had some relatively mild psychological problems, but Lionel tried to be as loving a father as possible, struggling to reach his quiet and isolated son. As a small child, Jeff seemed happy enough, playing with his dog or riding his bike, but was fascinated with death. When Lionel removed some animal bones from under the porch, the remains of small creatures killed by small local predators, Jeff seemed quite pleased by the sound they made dropping back into the bucket. His father dismissed it as childhood curiosity. Jeff was the class clown, known for doing things as ridiculous as faking seizures for laughs. In fact, he was lonely and isolated in school, with few friends. By high school, he was a full-blown alcoholic, drinking before, after, and even during class. When his parents divorced, his father was the one to move out of the house. When Jeff was 18, Joyce took David and left. Jeffrey was alone in the house with little food and a broken refrigerator until his father and his new wife found out about the situation and moved into the house. Trying to help his son, Lionel assisted Jeffrey get into the University of Ohio. But it was already too lateJeff Dahmer......
