One of the most disturbing things we’ve learned Bryan Kohberger after his arrest in University of Idaho murder case? The fact that he was a graduate student criminology of all things.
Linking that interest to the murders wasn’t a big step. After all, as far as investigators know, the murders were not due to the usual motives. Kohberger was a stranger to the four students. Heck, he didn’t even go to the same school. The brutal murders maddie mogen, Kaylee Goncalves, Xana KernodleAnd Ethan Chapin It seems like serial killings are more about the killer than the victim. Was studying criminology a reason why he always wanted to do it? To help him get away with it? Or just to be close to such cases?
It’s scary to think about, isn’t it?

Well, Kohberger’s interest in crime and law enforcement apparently goes back a long way. It turns out that he actually took part in a program during his high school years that, if things had gone differently, would have resulted in him becoming a cop! *shudder*
Former Monroe Career and Technical Institute Administrator Tanya Carmella Beers revealed Kohberger’s ambitions in the latest episode of a podcast titled The Idaho Massacre. She said she couldn’t say too much because of student privacy laws, but said in good faith that the accused killer was nowhere near becoming a real police officer under the Protective Services Program:
“For him, it wasn’t like he ended up in the police academy. It would be a bit more of a challenge for him to get there.”
Discussing the odd juxtaposition of prosecution and committing such a crime, Tanya teased that it strangely “makes sense” to her:
“Ultimately, looking back now, the reason he was dropped from the program makes sense…the fact that he wanted prosecution more than anything in the world if you just look at it from that perspective, not knowing what I’m doing.” You know… you’d say, “I’m so shocked.” In that sense, I am, but I know another little part, which is the part that happened at school… so do it that sense.”
Tanya explained that a very high moral standard is required of the students and anything that could result in a real cop being fired would also result in expulsion from the program – and an incident ensued.
“A complaint was made and the teacher reported it to me and said, ‘You know, we can’t let that happen.'”
A complaint? Yes – by a group of female students. If you’ve followed Kohberger’s case, you know this is a recurring theme for him. He also had grievances from women as a student, leading to his being fired as a TA shortly before his arrest. Carmella Beers continued:
“An investigation had to be carried out. Other students were interviewed. Bryan was interviewed. And there comes a time when decisions have to be made, whether it’s the decision the student wants or not…I don’t think he may have necessarily grasped the depth and breadth of the subject at hand.”
She couldn’t go into too much detail, but whatever the girls were upset about resulted in Kohberger being banned from the show. Instead, he studied air conditioning repair.
inside, FoxNews reports that Kohberger used the security course on his resume when he applied for a job as a security officer at nearby Mount Pleasant High School in Delaware — not to mention getting kicked out, of course.
