Abstract

Bosnian/Serbian/Croatian Abstract Masovne, nekontrolisane i serijske ubice zauzimaju značajno mjesto u savremenoj, masovnoj kulturi. Za ovakvu (anti)reputaciju ponajprije je zaslužna sedma umjetnost’’ – filmovi, a naročito serije. Fenomen koji je dostupan širim masama podložan je iskrivljenim interpretacijama, generalizacijama i stereotipiziranju. Dakle, osobine i ponašajne karakteristike masovnih, nekontrolisanih i serijskih ubica okružene su mitovima i nedovoljnim razumijevanjem njihove suštine i fenomenologije. Stoga je prvi cilj ovog rada predstaviti i objasniti definicije glavnih pojmova vezanih za homicide. Potom, prikazati statističke podatke i rezultate dosadašnjih istraživanja, a sve u cilju razbijanja mitova o masovnim, nekontrolisanim i serijskim ubicama. Poseban naglasak stavljen je na treći cilj: opisivanje toka i sadržaja kriminalističkog profiliranja, uz isticanje njegovog psihološkog aspekta. Opisane su i žene-serijske ubice, te teroristi, kao zasebna grupa počinilaca.


English Abstract Mass, spree and serial killers occupy an important place in contemporary mass culture. In the first place, "the seventh art" (movies and especially TV series) is credited with such an anti-reputation. A phenomenon, that is available to broad masses, is susceptible to misinterpretations, generalizations as well as stereotyping. Hence, traits and behavioral characteristics of mass, spree, and serial killers are surrounded by myths and insufficient understanding of their true essence and phenomenology. Therefore, the first aim of this paper is to present and explain the chief definitions of the main terms with regard to homicides. Further, to display statistical data and results of the previous research, in order to bust myths on mass, spree, and serial killers. Special emphasis was placed on the third aim: describing the process and contents of criminal profiling, while highlighting its psychological aspect. In addition, women-serial killers were described as well as terrorists, as distinct category of offenders.
