The correlation between habitual liars and murder is not just something in a statistical category, it is in the mouths of liars, and in their actions.
"Just because Casey told a few mis-truths doesn't make her a murderer." Cindy Anthony
A liar may just resort to murder should the liar be exposed. They hate it. It even drives them to take polygraphs.
A 24 year old multimillionaire will now spend the rest of his life behind bars, a few short miles from his former playing field, all because someone dared "disrespect" him.
It is the archive's heel of liars.
Liars grow up, from their earlier days, 'getting one over' everyone else. This breeds a mentality that says to the liar, "you are smarter than him; you can lie your way out" and the speed of transmission (that which we use in Statement Analysis) increases, as the liar becomes more and more comfortable with lying and finds clever ways to mitigate the internal stress that lying causes in the slight disruption in the speed of transmission.
This moves from 'you're smarter than him' to 'you're smarter than everyone else', as the liar gets older but even this gives way to;
'everyone else is beneath you' as success in habitual or pathological lying grows.
The 'insult' to the liar is this:
While he (or she, for regular readers here) holds the world in contempt as beneath him, and worthy of being lied to, the liar cannot abide the challenge of exposure. This causes extreme internal stress and can, in the proper circumstances, lead to violence, particularly if the child was exposed to violence early in life.
The liar will not accept an insult and will take action. In some cases, this "action" is violent, while in other cases, it is to ignore the lie (tangent) and go on the attack.
It is what we have seen in the persons of Lance Armstrong, and Hilary Clinton, as well as so many others. This is why the word "ruthless" has been applied to both. They will destroy anyone and anything that gets in their own way.
Sometimes people point to the polygraph and think, "He must be innocent. Why else would he dare polygraph?" not understanding the nature of a liar.
The speed of transmission:
Liar A is asked, "What happened?"
Liar A must now reach into his internal dictionary of, perhaps 30,000 words (pathological liars are often above average intelligence) and choose which words to use, what order the information should be in, what information to leave out (no one can tell us everything), and which words to place in which places, in order to communicate what is desired.
This takes place all in less than a millisecond of time.
When one speaks from experiential memory, it flows easily, but when deception is present, there is a halt, or disruption in this speed of transmission, which causes stress, internally, to the liar.
This stress is reduced by success and success breeds arrogance, while the fabricator of reality holds the world in contempt.
When questioned, the reaction is not tepid nor mild.
Note the description of Aaron Hernandez in the following article, particularly of his intellect and what happens when he does not get the "acclaim" he feels he deserves; even in prison.
This highlights what liars do, and how the pride they walk in, leads to the inevitable fall in life, as noted in antiquity.
Adolph Hitler, a most skilled liar, intended to end his own life, rather than end up in a Soviet prison. In fact, his pride was such that he commanded his men to burn his body so that even it, his lifeless decaying body, could not be put on display after his death.
Germany had little left.
Its male population was decimated by the war, and its infrastructure all but agrarian with factories bombed, cities destroyed, and civilians who survived, facing Soviet vengeance, famine, disease, and coming death that would rival the death by bullets. This included women and children.
Hitler, having made his "irrevocable decision" to end his life, ordered that Germany, itself, be destroyed. He sought to leave nothing for the allies. The German people "let me down" and now "deserved to be annihilated", in his view.
Liars are destructive.
Liars with authority are even more destructive.
Whether it be your personal life, your department, your business, or in any association, liars will bring damage, theft, loss, and trouble, as they will always put their own selfish wants and needs, above all others, without empathy for others.
Sheriff: Aaron Hernandez treating jail ‘like training camp’
The sheriff who had former New England Patriots player Aaron Hernandez in custody for more than 18 months said Tuesday that he’s a master manipulator and will probably do fine in prison now that he has been sentenced to life for murder.
Bristol County Sheriff Thomas Hodgson said Hernandez knows how to use his charm and manipulate better than anyone he has ever seen. He said Hernandez was generally affable and polite and would try to use those qualities to get what he wanted at the Bristol County House of Corrections.
“He would make every effort to get extra sandwiches,” Hodgson said. “He would just try to convince the officers to give him more than what they otherwise could get.”
Staff members were directed to treat Hernandez like any other inmate, Hodgson said.
Hernandez was convicted April 15 of the 2013 killing of Odin Lloyd, who was dating the sister of Hernandez’s fiancee. He will ultimately end up at the maximum-security Souza-Baranowski state prison. A lawyer for Hernandez did not immediately return messages seeking comment on the sheriff’s remarks.
After the verdict was delivered, staff from Bristol County brought Hernandez to a state prison not far from Gillette Stadium, where Hernandez used to play football in front of tens of thousands of cheering fans.
There, he told them, “I’ll miss you guys, but they got it wrong,” Hodgson said. “He didn’t really have much of a change in his demeanor. He pretty much still had a swagger in his step.”
Hodgson said the 25-year-old Hernandez has an ability to compartmentalize things and lock out the negative.
“He doesn’t really look at it as jail,” Hodgson said. “It’s more like training camp.”
Hernandez got into trouble from time to time in jail in Bristol County. He was accused of threatening to kill a prison guard and his family, and he got into a fight with another inmate.
Asked how he thinks Hernandez will do in prison, Hodgson said he thought he’d be OK.
“He’ll probably do fine. He’ll be able to talk his way through everything,” Hodgson said, adding that disrespect is a “hot-button” issue for Hernandez. “If someone’s trying to outwardly and aggressively disrespect him, that could create a problem.”
Hodgson said he had many conversations with Hernandez about his father, who died unexpectedly when Hernandez was 16. Hernandez would tell him how his father commanded respect whenever he walked into a room.
”His father was a huge, huge influence in his life and really his anchor,” Hodgson said. “If you disrespected him, it’s like you disrespected his father.”
