‘Mindhunter’ Season Two Will Focus on the Atlanta Child Murders. Here’s Why That Matters.

The reason that we don’t hear more about Black serial killers is not because they don’t exist. Rather, it’s because their victims are rarely newsworthy enough to get the same amount of coverage as white victims.

Charles Manson is finally dead. Good. A cult leader with a cult following, he inspired various fan clubs and Tumblr blogs, and had several hybristophiliacs fall “in love” with him during his time behind bars. The same is true of the likes of Jeffrey Dahmer, John Wayne Gacy, and Ted Bundy. White serial killers (I don’t care that Manson is “technically not a serial killer,” I did not come to argue with y’all) achieve notoriety and fandoms, even the most depraved and gruesome of them, like Albert Fish and Andrei Chikatilo.

We get to learn intimate details about their motivations for killing and how their childhood may or may not have

‘Mindhunter’ Renewed For A Second Season On Netflix

John Douglas on ‘Mindhunter’ – Part 2 | Military Press

“Mindhunter,” a bestselling book and now a Netflix original series, takes people behind the scenes of some of the most gruesome and challenging cases.

“Mindhunter” and the Presentation of the Serial Killer in Everyday Life

“Mindhunter” arrived, in October, on Netflix, under a sleekly portentous
title adapted from its source material: “Mind Hunter: Inside the FBI’s
Elite Serial Crime Unit.” The book, from 1995, is the true-crime memoir
of John E. Douglas, who was writing as a former F.B.I. agent on his way
to installation as Hollywood’s idea of the glamorous G-man,
behavioral-sciences edition. Douglas’s approach to criminal psychology
continues to determine the views of the government and the media. He
was, for instance, the lead author of a 1992 textbook, “Crime
Classification Manual,” which standardized the language used throughout
the United States criminal-justice system. He was also an immediate
inspiration for “The Silence of the Lambs” and an indirect influence on
screen storytellers who were busy reformatting true crime for a new
century. His insights have been essential both to the work of many field
