Dad from 'Dexter'

Craigslist Killer Is Just SICK ...

'Code' Isn't Real

2/23/2014 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

022114_james_remar_launchJames Remar -- who played Harry the dad on "Dexter" -- claims confessed Craigslist murderer Miranda Barbour is sick, sad, and confused if she believes she can kill for "good" ... because The Code from "Dexter" is a fallacy.

Remar tells TMZ Barbour is just rationalizing her crime(s) -- "I'm pretty sure that anyone who's a killer is somehow making it right." In the video, he also pumps holes in Barbour's Satanic cult claims.

Interesting take ... especially because Remar's character is the one who initially gives Dexter the idea to channel his murderous tendencies ... and kill for "good."

Aaahh yes....good old craigslist. Where "jobs" are offered that no one wants, "singles" place ads but never respond to them and people sell "things" at twice the amount they're worth. The entire site is a big steaming pile of dog s h i t.

This guy is such a hypocrite. Who would watch a show glorifying a serial killer or star in it if they weren't getting off on it? They love it, but they think they have the right to talk about someone who got caught up in it against their will and is trying to stop at risk of their own life.

You know that this show is on the air to promote the idea so why act so high and might? What is the point of the show then if they don't think that serial killing is justified in some way? I wouldn't watch the show because the whole premise is so stupid.

I think America is full of antisocial people and the ones who really do try to live in a better world are the ones who get labeled as the crazed psychopaths instead. They are pushed into corners and lash out out of confusion and torment. If he thinks serial killing is so wrong, why does he make his money off the concept?

Son of Sam broke through his programming also and basically left a note that allowed police to trace him and then he surrendered peacefully. He didn't want to be that kind of person and he refuses his parole hearings. He is still scared of what he could do.

To me, that is a person trying to do good, so just speaking bad of people for what they have done is not Berkowitz is now a living example against serial killing while this show tries to make it look cool.

Do you notice how in the clip it says that Dexter only kills those who have beaten the system? So what they are saying is that if you are not part of the system, you deserve to die. They are like robots carrying out their master's wishes, killing those who the system couldn't crush.

This is so NWO it is scary. I guess the fans of this show secretly think they are all Dexters meaning smart and able to kill and get away with it. Dexter used to mean some kind of genius in a nerdy way. So I guess all these goody goodies go prowling around in real life trying to destroy people who aren't part of the system.

Maybe they don't kill them directly, but they do everything they can to make their lives hell. Maybe this is how some of the real serial killers get pushed into being ones.

They get some creepy gawky boy who then only looks cool when contemplating how to kill. Then he is like well i am a yuppie looking guy so I can get away with being a raging killer. All of the sick fantasies this pushes in people is kind of scary to think about.

First a show glorifying the mob with The Sopranos. Then a show glorifying sluts with Sex in the City. Then a show glorifying making drugs in Breaking Bad. Now a show glorifying serial killers. I don't want to ask what is next. No joke. And people complain about poor Honey Boo Boo or even Snooki? Come on.

I remember when Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys were the heroes for stopping crimes, not committing them. There are some sick people getting very popular in this country. THAT IS WHAT IS SICK.

hollywood is a bad influence on a lot of people but they take no responsibility for the bad programing they put out. 1 out of 2 tv, movies glamorize violence, hollywood only cares about the money

She is looking to become notorious. Her outlandish claims will set up a 'not guilty by reason of insanity' defence, which is successful, would give her a shot at freedom when she is deemed 'cured'. That's all this is about.

People for some reason are unable to separate fantasy/tv/movies with reality. Not much common sense anymore.
