C - Criminology 12 - Today we are going to quickly look at burglary and arson (motives and differences in types). After we will watch a Criminal Minds episode (#19) from season two Ashes and Dust.

The unsub is described as an underachieving white male between 35 and 45 who suffers from a narcissistic character disorder. He can't succeed in his personal life or in business. He wants admiration and feels entitled like a petulant adolescent, and expects other people to take care of him. "His arson suit is expensive," notes Morgan, continuing that this means he is employed but can't work closely with others. This, along with the car information, leads the team to believe he is a traveling salesman of some sort. When Det. Castro asks why he uses fire, Reid answers that arsonists are like drug addicts who need a "fix" to get off. As addicts need more and more of a drug, so arsonists' crimes become worse and worse as time goes on. "It would be almost impossible for him to quit without help."
