An object used with the intention to physically harm, disable or murder a victim is generally referred to as a weapon. Only in extreme situations will the perpetrator make open use of weapons. In most cases, we will find that a disguised object is the preferred tool of the perpetrator. At times, the perpetrator harms her/himself claiming to the authorities that the victim inflicted this harm. However, inconsistency and emotional instability are a give away if such an occasion should occur.
The typical arsenal of weaponry is the following one:
The perpetrator will test the victim and the situation before lunching an attack. A successful attack will increase the probability for the perpetrator to become arrogant and delusional and hence to manufacture a situation where the crime will be detected.
