6 Quote “I know society will never be able to forgive me. I know the families of the victims will never forgive me for what I have done. I promise I I will pray each day to ask for their forgiveness when the hurt goes away, if I ever. I have seen their tears, and if I could give my life right now to bring their loved ones back, I would do it”

7 Books and movies Book-The Jeffery Dahmer Story- An American Nightmare Movie- The Milwaukee Cannibal (documentary

8 Social control theory I think Jeffery Dahmer belongs under the social control theory because of his family. The bond between him and his parents was never strong. His father was absent most of his life. Dahmers mother was disturbed herself, she was never there to comfort Jeffery. Jeffery was afraid to be alone when his parents divorced. After his parents divorced he was left alone for 2 weeks without food for his parents. When is father came for him he was a total mess. During those 2 weeks Jeffery was alone that is when he killed his first victim. Dahmer was never able to look people in the eye and he could not build relationships with people. Throughout Jeffery’s childhood he was continually ignored and became an outcast from society. As Jeffery grew older he became an alcoholic. Jeffery's neighbors thought he was a normal child when he was younger, they just thought he was a shy kid.
