Take anyone who has murdered, not for profit or gain (Jack the Ripper etc.). They were all conditioned not to kill, but they chose to ignore that. There was no other conditioning kicking in saying "killing is ok". They simply decided to ignore everything they'd previously been told was right and wrong. Someone who's conditioned can do that, something that's programmed cannot.
^^ Excellent point. People can go out and do crazy things, regardless of what's logical or how they've been conditioned.

EDIT: like Jason Bourne? Anyone?
