In the article “Jeffrey Dahmer, Crime Library” (Crime Museum), I learned more about the case of Jeffrey Dahmer and what crimes he committed throughout his lifetime. Throughout the span of 1978-1991, he murdered 17 males and did horrible things to them. He would rape his victims, dismember them and eat them. He claimed that he ate them in order to “feel that they would always be with him”. His childhood was very rough on him which sometimes can lead to them becoming this way. This case was very shocking to the world when this case came out, sometimes Dahmer would add acid to his victim’s brains in order to make them into “zombies”. 

What are your thoughts on this case? Do you think he should’ve gotten the death sentence?

Although this case happened many years ago this case is still very shocking and “fresh” to the world because of the new series that came out on Netflix. I do not recommend watching this series if you get frightened and disgusted easily. Dahmer was sentenced to 957 years in prison for his crimes. All of his victims were males and one was a 14-year-old boy.

I agree that he should have gotten the death penalty because he murdered multiple people and should be held accountable for what he did. But I do believe that his color played a role in why he didn’t get sentenced to the death penalty. For example, people of color are mostly sentenced to the death penalty even though 82 percent of serial killers in America are white. So it is not surprising that he didn’t get sentenced to the death penalty even though he should have.

Dear Kimberly,

I really liked this post and found it very interesting. After first hearing about the Dahmer case and looking more into it I could really see how bad this actually was. I wonder how it was for the families who had to see the man who did this to their relatives.

Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because this was very interesting and it makes me wanna go back and see how exactly this played out and the different perspectives on this.

I really like this and I totally agree with you. Even though this case was a while ago, it is still so disturbing and forever will be, and I agree with you when you call it “fresh” even with how long ago it was, becuase that’s how shocking it was. This case is so disturbing and forever will be, I can’t imagine how it would have been when he finally got caught.

Dear Kimberly,

Your post made me think about how bad people can be depending on their situation. This means how they grow up and how they are taught can greatly influence who they will be in the future. As you continue to research, I hope you discover more about what people thought of him and how they justified his actions. Like if they thought he was mentally insane or was instead aware of what he was doing.

Dear Kimberly,

I was very interested in your article, “Jeffrey Dahmer, Crime Library Crime Museum” because It was informative on Jefferey Dahmer’s crime.

He ultimately murdered many innocent men. He was addicted an unable to stop his crime. I believe he deserved a death sentence since many lives were taken, and families were put through pain.

One sentence that stood out to me was “His childhood was very rough on him which sometimes can lead to them becoming this way. ” I think is is important because his past and childooh played apart in who he became. I Think this effected him.

Thanks for your writting. I look foward to seeing what you write next, because it brings awareness of whats going on and whit is happpening in the real world of crimes.

Dear Kimberly, I was very interested with your article, “Jeffrey Dahmer, Crime Library ( Crime Museum )” because of the interesting information that was given. This basically summarizes what Jeffrey Dahmer did and possibly why he did what he did.

One sentence that you wrote that stands out to me is, ” This case was very shocking to the world when this case came out, sometimes Dahmer would add acid to his victim’s brains in order to make them into “zombies”.  ” This is very interesting as I didn’t know about this and I even watched the Netflix Series and Documentaries.

Thank you for writing, I look forward to seeing what you write next because this post was honestly very interesting. Learning about this case was very interesting because of the things he did.

Dear Kimberly

I am satisfied by the article “Jeffrey Dahmer, Crime Library ” (Crime Museum),because I have watched  the jeffery dahmer netflix series and I fell in love with it. This goes more into details about who he is . I learned more about his case as well.
One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is “He would rape his victims, dismember them and eat them” I think this is stands out because as a human why are you eating people. A normal person would not be satisfied with killing and eating other people.
Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because we both have the same interests. I personally love true crime so I hope we communicate and inform each other more about this case.

Dear Kimberly, I am intrigued by your post ” Jeffrey Dahmer” because I find his story to be interesting. This is because Jeffrey Dahmer had murdered people for a span of 13 years which was from 19-78-1991 which was when he was finally caught. One sentence that stands out to me was “…dismembered them and ate them..”. I found this to be eye catching because this isn’t normal. This is because when people were found to be serial killers they weren’t found out to also be a cannibals as well which is what Jeffrey was for eating his victims. Thank you for your writing, I look forward to what your write next because I found your post to be very educating and interesting because I learned something I didn’t know before.

dear kimberly i am satisfied with your introduction because its really on point and interesting. one thing i learned from your writing that stood out for me is “In the article “Jeffrey Dahmer, Crime Library” (Crime Museum), I learned more about the case of Jeffrey Dahmer and what crimes he committed throughout his lifetime.” I think this is confusing because you were supposed to write about native Americans but instad you wrote about jeffrey Dahmer. your writing doesn’t connect to my own because i wrote about native Americans and wrote about something wield.
