Pop Culture's Pervasive Killer

The Agenda with Steve Paikin

Jason. Hannibal Lecter. Dexter. The list of serial killers in movies and on television is long. Why, with all their brutal and gruesome deeds, do these really bad characters crop up so often in popular culture? To discuss the public's fascination with serial killers, The Agenda welcomes Jim Clemente, a former FBI profiler, and writer and co-producer of the television series, "Criminal Minds," and Father Raymond de Souza, chaplain at Queen's University, and editor of Convivium Magazine.
