Hickling and Walcott (2003), posits that many individuals who have been found guilty for murder were said to be victims of abuse as a child.
These persons were proven to be suffering from aggressive behavior.
One of the main reason are due to persons historical past were physical abuse is evident.
Hickling and Walcott (2013) stated that the lack of remorse, as indicated by being indifferent to or rationalizing, having hurt, mistreated or stolen from another individual.
Without having any knowledge of the individual’s background, family or what they are facing, people hurt others, mistreat and in most cases kill others. Has shown that in Jamaica, it was confirmed that most cases occur in urban area and they were moderate to severe.

Yes. What I found interesting is them attributing being raised in poverty to the development of personality disorder.
Yes. I found that to interesting also. I have never made that connection.
