OMG! These People are Blood Chilling Child Killers.
The mere thought that a child would have no empathy and could be dangerous and manipulative to society is shied away from and is something that many people refuse to accept. There is not even a standardized test for psychopathy in children, but as time goes on more and more experts on the matter have started to believe that psychopathy is a neurological disorder that could be diagnosed in a child as young as five. Of course, a child’s behavior is at least partly a result of their environment and upbringing, which must be taken into consideration when understanding some of history’s most horrific crimes, unfortunately, by children.
1 Amarjeet Sada – 8 years old
Amarjeet was an 8-year-old at the time of his arrest in June 2007. He is blamed of having murdered three babies, of which two were his own relatives. His 6-month-old cousin was his first victim, who he supposedly strangled to death. His second victim was also a cousin, not much older than the first, who had been beaten to death. Both incidents were hushed up by the family and he may have even gotten away with it had he not been suspected in the death of a neighbors baby daughter as well.
2 Cindy Collier (15) and Shirley Wolf (14)
Shirley and Cindy came to be friends when Cindy visited a Sacramento group home. Commonalities and mutual experiences such as brutal homes and molestation by parents and relatives led to an instant kinship between the girls. That same afternoon, they went around a condominium complex, knocking on doors at random, asking to make a phone call or for a glass of water. No one but 85-year-old Anna Bracket let them in and was talking with them close to an hour. When a phone call distracted Brackett, Shirley held her by the throat and pushed her to the floor. Cindy threw her a knife and Shirley proceeded to stab the woman repeatedly. Finally, as she lay bleeding to death, Bracket told the girl she was dying and Shirley’s cold response was a simple “good.”
3 Carl Newton Mahan
6 years old – On May 18, 1929 Carl and his friend, Cecil Van Hoose, 8, were in the process of amassing scrap metal to sell and make some extra pocket money. Cecil had stolen Carl’s scrap, hitting him in the face with it. Small spats like this start and end between kids, but the end Carl had in mind was quite different. Unlike most children his age, he did not cry or lash back or tell his parents about the incident; instead, he ran home, found his father’s shotgun, ran all the way back and told Cecil, “I’m going to shoot you,” just before pulling the trigger, killing the other.
4 At only three years old
The youngest reported murderer’s name is kept out of court records for the sake of her own safety. During her trial, it was brought to light that she bludgeoned and murdered her 22-day old sister when her parents were drunk and passed out in the other room. Some do not think the child was at an age to understand what her actions caused, going as far as suspecting the little girl mistook the baby for a doll, but others believe that by the extent and nature of the beating, it was intentional and mainly because of jealousy and neglect.
