* NeverendingTerror: A particularly twisted example with a serial rapist that got sick pleasure by stalking and tracking his victims after their first assault and then raping them again and again at random points in their lives. One woman was so broken by the experience that her career, marriage, family and entire life went to pieces as she became afraid of ANY human interaction, or even leaving her house...forcing her to live in painful solitude. The criminal got pleasure from knowing he was the only thing these women thought about, every moment of their lives.

[[JustifiedTrope Justified]] for two reasons: She's a medical doctor, and therefore would know where to aim to avoid a mortal injury; and, more importantly, the perp was holding up a bank with an entire squadron of police cars waiting outside, ''and'' he had just fired at them, ''and'' was seconds away from committing suicide by cop.

* BigBrotherInstinct: Glenn loves being a big brother, even if it's only to his adoptive siblings. Greg also qualifies given that he committed a big and elaborate crime just so the FBI would reopen the case and look for his missing brother.

* TheExtremistWasRight: In the episode "Spectacle", the villain of the episode is a young man whose little brother was kidnapped eight years ago, never being found because law enforcement gave up without much of a fight. He was absolutely convinced that they could easily have found him even with the trail being eight years cold if they genuinely gave a shit, so he resorts to, [[spoiler:with both the accomplice and "victim" in on it because they're his friends]], [[MissingWhiteWomanSyndrome kidnapping a young, pretty college girl]] and having his accomplice physically abuse her on camera, then demanding they find his brother before he lets her go. ''They find his brother in less than half a day''.

* ReactionaryFantasy: A favorite of the whole franchise, but taken to new levels considering this show focuses around sexual crimes. What would the horror of kidnapping a teenage girl be without a lurid recounting of the bondage and sexual perversions she suffered?
