Why we don’t see those who intend to harm us or others, until it’s too late.

The following paragraphs are excerpts from Inside the Minds of Serial Killers,from a chapter about people who live quite close to predators but fail to see them. Although I focus on serial killers in this blog, I believe the same principles hold for being around sex offenders, con artists, and other types of predators:

Many people believe that serial killers are loners and losers, unable to maintain careers or relationships. They’re supposedly under-educated, narcissistic, and searching for short-term gratification. The public wants monsters to be obvious, and many popular culture productions reinforce the naïve hope that they’re on the fringes of society. But monsters do live among us—easily and with little detection—because the clever ones know how to adapt and to deflect suspicion.
