9780978898403: Life Without Hope: Into the Mind of Richard L. Ramirez

Richard L. Ramirez terrorized Los Angeles during 1985. He was dubbed "The Night Stalker" because he would stalk the homes of people at night, break in, murder, rape, and burglarize residents completely at random. What drove him to such acts of horror? Could he be considered sane, or merely evil? There have been numerous books and articles written about him in an attempt to understand his and other criminal minds. Yet never to my knowledge has there been one book that documents the thoughts, and actual letters of a mass murderer. That is precisely what this book does. It finally answers some of the questions that we have all wondered about. What goes on in the mind of a mass murderer? What motivates their heinous actions? And what is it like to KNOW that you will spend every second of your life in a cold cell with barely a shred of hope for freedom? Kay Dee has assembled a collection of actual letters, poems and essays that let us feel the desolation of, "life without hope."

From the Back Cover:

Look at your daily newspaper. Turn on your radio or TV tonight. You will be hard-pressed NOT to find some article or show about murder. I dare you to even attempt channel surfing for more than 1 minute without being drawn in at the prospect of death. We have ended-up glorifying the very thing that we loath.

So we must be honest with ourselves. We are perplexed by this and we would have to ask, WHY? That is precisely what this book does. It finally answers some of the questions that we have all wondered about. What goes on in the mind of a mass murderer? What motivates their heinous actions? And what is it like to KNOW that you will spend every second of your life in a cold cell with barely a shred of hope for freedom?
