In my mind, taking another life is the ultimate crime, the ultimate worst thing that you could do and is completely out of the question. What makes these individuals think that they have the right to end a life? Do they even think of the individual as a human with a soul?
While viewing all the videos, reading books, viewing documentaries and newspaper articles on this man it is truly hard to pinpoint the exact type of killer he truly is; considering the many traits of a few different serial killer types he could fit. He for the most part would have sex with most of his victims and then kill them, which were all prostitutes that would go undetected as missing for quite a while and he very well knew this information.
He would make them comfortable, have sex with them and for most of the cases beat and strangle them and later dismember them and distribute their body parts.
Although, in some cases he incased them in a trunk and dumped them but typically keeping to his usual dumping sites; some cases he used concrete and threw them in the East River never to be found. I consider him a mission killer because he targeted prostitutes with a random selection but mainly did it when his mother and sister were out of town which to me sounds planned to a certain degree.
Although, he was very organized in his disposal of each and every victim it is stated he changed his method of disposal variously. He did mainly stick to a concentrated area of Manhattan and Brooklyn.
He grew up a shy child making him a target for bullies. Something about Joel Rifkin made him different, a quality that made him an immediate outsider, falling prey to all bullies.
Classmates named him The Turtle, after his slouching posture and slow walk. He was always left out of all the neighborhood games; Joel was the butt of all the pranks and jokes. The bullies assaulted him in school and pulled his pants down, stole his lunch and books, and harassed him constantly.
Joel was the stereotypical nerd, in glasses and high-water pants with white socks. One of the bullies who harassed him later called Rifkin an abuse unit. He talked about how he was subtly obnoxious and that his presence annoyed you.
Rifkin joined the yearbook staff, and had his camera stolen. He tried his hardest to put the senior yearbook out, but he was excluded from the year-end wrap party. In some daydreams he raped and stabbed women, but his fantasy victims were silent, just passive about it.
There were no real-life romances for Rifkin. Another time, Rifkin made it as far as a local pizza parlor with his date, but the same bullies chased them out, chasing he couple on foot until Joel and the girl found safety in a public library.
His mother shared her love of gardening and photography with Joel oblivious to him being bullied by his classmates. She thought he just a loner.Jun 08, · Joel David Rifkin ( –) American Serial Killer Posted on June 8, by davidmalocco American serial killer Joel David Rifkin aka Joel the Ripper was convicted of the murder of nine women working as prostitutes in the New York area between and However, he is believed to have been responsible for seventeen or eighteen deaths.
