DAILYKENN.com -- An elderly white man wanted for a dozen murders and dozens of rapes has been arrested.
Joseph James DeAngelo, 72, was arrested at his home northeast of Sacramento, California.
White people seem to be more likely to commit serial murders and mass shootings. Actually, about 13 percent of serials murders are attributed to black suspects; about the same percentage as the nation's black population.
Nonetheless, over half of homicides in the nation are attributed to blacks.
One theory is that impulse control is more evident among whites that blacks. That explains why blacks are more likely to commit acts of violence as an expression of rage.
Whites, the theory suggests, retain impulse control but are more cerebral than blacks. That is expressed in methodical, thought-out crimes such as serial murders and mass shooting.

The suspect believed to be the notorious Golden State Killer — who was wanted in a dozen murders and nearly 50 rapes from the late 1970s to the mid-1980s — has been arrested in California, officials said Wednesday.
Joseph James DeAngelo, 72, was arrested early Wednesday at his Citrus Heights home, located 16 miles northeast of Sacramento, after a DNA sample matched that of the Golden State Killer, officials said at a news conference.
County records show DeAngelo is being held at the Sacramento County Main Jail, where he was booked on two counts of murder and is reportedly on suicide watch.
Officials said prosecutors will seek the death penalty against DeAngelo, a former police officer.
Sacramento County District Attorney Anne Marie Schubert said that DNA helped investigators identify DeAngelo and helped solve the case in the last six days.
