"...In 1955, as a witness at a Senate subcommittee hearing on juvenile delinquency, Dr. Hacker testified that impressions gained by viewing movies could serve as a 'trigger mechanism' that set off latent tendencies toward abnormal behavior....Later Dr. Hacker was a court-appointed expert in the murders of the actress Sharon Tate and several other Hollywood figures, in which Charles Manson and a number of his followers were convicted. Dr. Hacker also worked with the Hearst family after Patricia Hearst was kidnapped in San Francisco in 1974, and with the West German authorities after the terrorist killings at the Munich Olympics of 1972....Dr. Hacker's books included 'Crusaders, Criminals, Crazies: Terror and Terrorism in Our Time,' which came out in 1977."
