"It's nothing you'd understand, but I do have something to say.
In fact, I have a lot to say, but now is not the time or place. I don't know why I'm
wasting my time or breath. But what the hell? As for what is said of my life, there have been lies in the past
and there will be lies in the future. I don't believe in the hypocritical, moralistic dogma of this so-called
civilized society. I need not look beyond this room to see all the liars, hater, the killers, the crooks,
the paranoid cowards--truly trematodes of the Earth, each one in his own legal profession. You maggots make me sick--
hypocrites one and all. And no one knows that better than those who kill for policy, clandestinely or openly,
as do the governments of the world, which kill in the name of God and country or for whatever reason the deem
appropriate. I don't need to hear all of society's rationalizations, I've heard them all before and the fact remains
that what is, is. You don't understand me. You are not expected to. You are not capable of it. I am beyond your
experience. I am beyond good and evil, Legions of the night--night breed--repeat not the errors of the Night Prowler
and show no mercy. I will be avenged. Lucifer dwells within us all. That's it"
--Richard Ramirez's statement before he received sentencing at his trial.
"I love to kill people. I love to watch them die. I would shoot them in the head and they would wiggle
and squirm all over the place, and then just stop. Or I would cut them with a knife and watch their
faces turn real white. I love all that blood."
"Even psychopaths have emotions. Then again, maybe not."
"Serial killers do, on a small scale, what governments do on a large one. They are products of our
times and these are bloodthirsty times."
"Killing is killing whether done for duty, profit,or fun."
"I gave up love and happiness a long time ago."
"There's blood behind the Night Stalker"
"No big deal death always comes with the territory I'll see you in Disneyland"
