"Other sins only speak;
Murder shrieks out."
(John Webster)

From the time of Cain and Abel, even before in the unrecorded history of the human animal, the creature named man, Homo Sapiens to the modern world, has engaged in crimes of unspeakable acts of brutality against one another, described and defined in multiple cultures, in the religious beliefs of countless religions, or demarcated and established by laws of governments, or local mores, as beyond the pale, egregious acts of despicable and highly reprehensible deeds, ignominious, sordid, vile, beyond the law of man and the immortals, contrary to the laws of nature, and just plain sinful according to many. These acts, in violation of the mores of society, seem never ending in their occurrences or in the perverted and unusual methods of committing them.

Infanticide, the killing of children; matricide, the killing of one's mother; patricide, the killing of one's father; fratricide, the killing of one's siblings; suicide, self-destruction; genocide, the liquidation of a population for whatever reason; and homicide, the cold-blooded, deliberate acts of murder by butchery, shooting, gutting, choking, burning, dismembering, hanging, drowning, purposeful starvation, gang rape, poisoning, or any other diabolical means, SHRIEKS OUT IN ANGER AND CRIES FOR VENGENCE, for it is, in the primeval sense, murder most foul.
