Contract killers bury their feelings to complete the kill

10 posts in this topic

BIRMINGHAM, England, May 20 (UPI) -- Hired assassins must be cold and calculated. It's science -- or at least a scientific survey. Criminology researchers in England found successful hitmen, or contract killers, can convince themselves that they are hunting a moving target, not a human being.

The study, conducted by researchers at Birmingham City University, showed that hitmen must suppress their emotions to successfully execute a hit, or kill. Most novice assassins, the researchers found, adopt a 'just-a-job' mentality when approaching their assignment. They consider themselves businessmen.

In their study -- published this week in The Howard Journal of Criminal Justice -- researchers highlight a number of hired hits, both successful and not.

The 2001 murder of Gulistan Subasi by North London teenager Santre Sanchez Gayle is offered as a prime example of detachment. After shooting Subasi as she opened the door, the 15-year-old -- paid a little more than $300 for his executed kill -- quickly but calmly left the scene in a taxi, allowing no time for humanization. His detachment was later rewarded with a conviction and at least 20 years in prison.

​Well i personally know 2 Hitmen....Explaining how would just be long-winded but anyhow. Here is the scoop.

One of them takes the businessman approach. Takes only jobs that follow his code. That being people who deserve to die. Those with wealth. Those with sick and twisted perversions etc etc.

The other does not care. He enjoys the thrill of the human hunt.

Both of them scare the shit out of me. When it comes to hitmen it does not matter why they do it. It matters that they do it. Dont piss them off.
