- He then went into denial of doing anything wrong "Guilt doesn't solve anything, really," he said in 1981. "It hurts you ... I guess I am in the enviable position of not having to deal with guilt." “We serial killers are your sons, we are your husbands, we are everywhere. And there will be more of your children dead tomorrow” “I didn't know what made people want to be friends. I didn't know what made people attractive to one another. I didn't know what underlay social interactions. “ “What's one less person on the face of the earth, anyway?” “I just liked to kill, I wanted to kill.” “You feel the last bit of breath leaving their body. You're looking into their eyes. A person in that situation is God!” “Murder is not about lust and it's not about violence. It's about possession.” “I don't feel guilty for anything. I feel sorry for people who feel guilt.” “… I deserve, certainly, the most extreme punishment society has and society deserves to be protected from me and from others like me, that's for sure.” “Well-meaning, decent people will condemn the behavior of a Ted Bundy, while they're walking past a magazine rack full of the very kinds of things that send young kids down the road to be Ted Bundys.” “I'm the most cold-hearted son-of-a-bitch you'll ever meet.” “I've met a lot of men who were motivated to commit violence just like me. And without exception, without question, every one of them was deeply involved in pornography. “
