Circumcision, Serial Killing, Criminal Behavior and American Medical Violence

The first killer I studied had put bandages over the wounds of the people he stabbed once they were dead. Other killers have done the same thing. Robert Ressler, FBI.[1]

(MONTEREY, CA) - Circumcision is a Mock Death ritual,[2] a game of play killing in a sacrificing ritual. Once the tissue is taken, the concept of death is finalized and bandages placed. Criminally and medically circumcision’s ritual is a Genital Dismemberment.

As early as 1945 the connection of circumcision induced homicidal and suicidal rages was established in a child as young as 6 years old.[3] This article also connects PTSD, then called Combat Neurosis, to such early surgeries and may be a reason the USA and U.S. Military personnel are highly susceptible.

Degrees and intensity vary with age and higher when young. Pre-verbal trauma is not easily accessed by regular memory and much resides in the unconscious. Verbal conscious memory increases the awareness of betrayal. Traumatic frustration occurs and remains with both verbal and Pre-verbal. In essence, circumcision related violent behavior is expressed from being a Sacrifice Returned.

Genitally-focused circumcision Assault and Battery is a form of Culture-Bound and Culture-Specific Syndromes in a Shared Psychotic Disorder. Violence between individuals and societies are common to the point of pathognomonic.

America’s circumcision is an adopted habit of socialized violence through Cultural Imperialism. The result is Cycles of Violence and Betrayal.[4] These cycles reside in a sense of Betrayal resulting in a Transference of Aggression onto other persons in other acts of Betrayal. Besides the individual, the Transference of Aggression is expressed socially between one group and nation against another. Transference is a deliberate choice and the substitute object is the genitals.

Transference is the deliberate displacement of one’s unresolved conflicts, dependencies, and aggressions onto a substitute object.


Original FBI’s Criminal Profilers who led the Behavioral Science Unit in Quantico, Virginia know circumcision is a factor in some serial killings and partly responsible for America’s generalized asocial violence.

It has been inferred Robert Ressler, in an off the record comment when interviewed by Mothering Magazine’s web-editor, related the fact that the FBI realizes circumcision is a factor in violence. He explained they do not mentioned this because they would be considered raving lunatics and lose their jobs. Robert Ressler coined the term Serial Killer.

This attitude pervades throughout Law Enforcement from the U.S, Department of Justice down to local Sheriff Departments and Child Protective Services. Many have no clue, the same as the parents who are Conned into the ritual. The Con is the criminal Approach used to lure victims.

In Norway, the only country that records the circumcision status of rapists, 2% of the population are circumcised and commit more than 80% of their rapes. And, since 1991 almost all wars involved one circumcised country with some conflicts between both factions being circumcised. This includes all USA conflicts since Vietnam.

No other statistical records are kept regarding the individual and social percentile circumcision status of serial killers or rapists. Yet, over 50% of rapes in Sweden are perpetrated by the minority of men who belong to circumcising cultures. Circumcision status may factor highly in the USA’s highest of all other country’s incarceration rate to population.

Mickey Featherstone

Mickey Featherstone was born in the Irish district of New York City. He enlisted the Army at 17 making the ranks of the Green Berets. He never saw combat because he was considered to be too small, meek, mild and non-aggressive.

When passed out drunk in Vietnam he was circumcised by two Medics as a joke. The Army considered it No Big Deal and nothing happened. His sister said his eyes had become scary when he returned.

He drank heavily. One time a group from outside the Irish district was escorted out of the bar he was at twice by the police. He went home. When told they returned again he got a rifle and shot one in the side not killing him. Featherstone pleaded guilty and received probation. He became a gangster.

In 1971 he was confronted by another gangster and shot him dead. At this trial the psychiatrists who testified agreed he was a paranoid schizophrenic due to his Vietnam trauma and found not-guilty due to insanity. He was incarcerated in Attica until 1975 for not returning from a week-end furlough from his Psychiatric facility.

When released he became a mob hit man and was never convicted in any trial. He was eventually arrested for passing a counterfeit $100 dollar bill and pleaded guilty. He received a six year term and Judge Lawrence Pierce told him: “Mr. Featherstone, the war in Vietnam is over.” But Featherstone was still circumcised.

Eventually Mickey Featherstone was found guilty of a murder he did not commit. Figuring he was set up by the mob he worked for he turned informant and went into Witness Protection.

Featherstone’s Signature in some of his killings was Dismemberment. He with his partners would cut them apart in a bath tub and dispose the remains. This was somewhat common in their gang warfare.

Mickey Featherstone’s legacy of crime is attributable to his circumcision as an asocial Sacrificed Returned.

Brisman Craigslist Murder

Phillip Markoff was born 1986. His biological father is Jewish and mother Catholic. He was circumcised. His parents divorced and mother remarried. She and her husband occasionally attended Catholic Mass especially after the children grew.

Phillip Markoff

If Phillip attended Catholic Catechism classes or other forms of religious instruction he would have learned the Christian Testament’s verses regarding circumcision. If he questioned, the Catholic nuns would more likely than not responded with simply: Because God was. Children are not taught by the American Catholic clergy any more that circumcision is a sacrifice at birth. Instead they only emphasize the Crucifixion of Jesus. Jesus to Christians is the Last Sacrifice. But this is not lost to many males.

Markoff was a good student and a second year Sophomore in medical school. First Freshman year medical students take Gross Anatomy where they dissect preserved human bodies. What did he see? What did he learn? What did he discuss? What did he keep to himself?

Julissa Brisman

As with almost all, Markoff used Transference of Aggression on women. He started using Craig’s List to meet victims. At first he committed a violent robbery. But the name of his second victim that he killed, Julissa Brisman, was the stressor that drove him over the edge with loss of control. His third victim survived. Violence usually never decreases further indicating circumcision was the Stressor. Was circumcision mentioned or discussed before he killed her?

The circumcision connection was immediately made. The Jewish community was quick to respond. Their analysis was though his father was Jewish and his mother was not Jewish, Markoff was not Jewish. This is because to be Jewish the mother must be Jewish. Thus they felt culturally exonerated and self-glorification maintained in their Munchausen behavior. But Markoff was still circumcised.[5]

Finally after 3 previous attempts Markoff committed suicide in his jail cell and never went to trial. Psychologists debate why. Some say it was the ultimate expression of selfishness in Narcissism and not about his x-fiancé whose pictures were all over the wall. And, in his blood he wrote her name as well as her affectionate nickname.

Not one psychologist equates this as embarrassment equivalent to why many women do not report their rape. Somewhere he came to see himself as a deformed man. He could not handle it anymore with what his future would surely have been.

Philip Markoff’s spree Craig’s List crimes are attributable to his circumcision as an asocial Sacrifice Returned.

American Medicine

Circumcision is a social crime. The Signature of the crime is called the Ritual. Socially the Specialized Agent is the person who carries out the Ritual.[6] It does matter if the Ritual Agent is a witch doctor, mohel or physician. Psychological conditions determine what drives their knives.

The 2012 AAP Policy Statement is a criminally based lie which partly resides from Delusional Disorder. Much involves Narcissism and a Malignant Hero Syndrome common in pathologic health care providers. As with Team Member serial killers some may be the Dominant Personalities while others are Submissive Personalities willing to follow to belong.

This American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) circumcision policy is carefully crafted with active components of Public Relations, Propaganda and Persuasion through the Power of Words with Logical Fallacies. The inactive component is a screaming Misdirection as a contrived improper Differential Diagnosis through omissions of facts that would make their assumptive balderdash the opposite.

American Medicine has been blessed no retaliation has occurred upon them because of this Cycles of Abuse and Betrayal. Serial killers do not usually attack the object of their resentment. The frustration of circumcision is evident. There is a web site Circumcision Karma that may appear disturbing to some. It has short biographies of many circumcised serial killers and conjectures about other individuals.[7]

There are historic instances where circumcision is the cause of social violence. It occurs when men take over the social role of protecting its children’s socialized genitals. These are short and extremely violent. It is best to cease this criminal ritual altogether because present winds are foreboding.

What begins as a fantasy ends as part of a homicidal ritual.  Robert Ressler.[8]

Subject as old as Maimonides who warned fellow Jews that a Jewess who experienced an intact man will never return. Also Sigmund Freud who was his own therapist discovered that a circumcised invalid and an intact Jewess play on a rigged field. He recommended female circumcision as a cure for what he called female hysteria, rather than growing a foreskin. He found it baffling that his jewish clientele consisted of Viennese Jewesses but not Italian. The secret was in the fact the Italian Jewesses used an institution called "gigolo". Hence prevalence of Italian genes among Italian jews. Ancient Greeks had an interesting perspective and early on in their civilization discovered the significance of a foreskin which they would protect from damage during Olympic games. St. Paul realized that he could not sell Christianity if he was to insist on circumcision.

The connection has been made often and we might include Islam.

Ive noticed that often when the subject of which is better, intact or cut, its usually the cut men who get aggressive and defnsive, while the intact men tend to care what othrs think less

Doesn't surprise me in the least.

The only way to know whether cicumcised males are more at risk for PTSD than intact males is to perform a comprehensive study on the matter. Is there such a study? Personally, I'm against non-consensual circ and I'm sure RIC causes some psychological trauma, but jumping to farfetched conclusions that tie circumcision to criminal behavoir will not help our cause in the least.

When one is harmed in early life and has no words for it, he 'acts out' what happened to him. if he feels betrayed and was in fear for his life, then he might dramatize that - "See what they did to me!" I believe this is what happens when a child is cut and does not resolve his terror around it.

Ralph E. Stone September 1, 2012 8:32 am (Pacific time)

Whatever your feelings on circumcision, this nonsensical linking of circumcision to "homicidal and suicidal rages" and the "cause of social violence" doesn't advance the debate one bit.
