OK, he's going to get what he deserves. That Police Department too? Epic fail if they are let scoot free without owning up to their irresponsible behavior - Mvpl TALK (CM Wiki Admin)
The Milwaukee police were greatly criticized for their actions when two of their officers left Konerak Sinthasomphone at Dahmer's apartment and failed to run a simple background check on him (he was on probation for a sex offense against children at the time). --Jpx400 14:59, June 6, 2011 (UTC)
My problem is that I don't think criticism alone is enough to change those shameful behaviors as that kind of unprofessional attitudes usually are the result of something deeper being badly rotten. And to make things worse, I bet some politic will see those critics as a taint to his/her career, and that would be the only thing that would matter from then on, thus making nearly impossible to address the real problem because that would take time and he/she will want a very quick resolution (and yes, I'm aware that I can be the poster child for cynicism ;) - Mvpl TALK (CM Wiki Admin)

Found a funny clip on YouTube of Billy Connolly talking about Dahmer. Never thought a joke about Dahmer could make me laugh.

His official diagnosis

Major depression, generalized anxiety disorder, substance use disorder (drugs and alcohol), paraphilias (including necrophilia, exhibitionism, hebephilia, fetishism, pygmalionism, and erotophonophilia), and the big one, borderline personality disorder. He was never diagnosed with pedophilia and it's probably because he never molested anyone under the age of 13. When you are attracted to those that are 13-16/17 - it's called hebephilia, which he was diagnosed with. What you have up there under "Pathology" is not based on fact at all.
