Do you hate someone who didn't do anything to you directly?

Let's say you saw a man who killed his wife and kids on the news. Will you get mad and angry because you can relate to the issue or because people see it as cruel? Will you hate him even though he doesn't hate you? Is it unfair?

Hi, Gorillafootprints925. I won't hate this person. If anything I will despise them very much for committing an indecent act upon someone that was deadly. I would be totally disgusted with this person. I would not hate them, but I would feel sick of them.

I don't like the word hate, since I believe hating doesn't get you anywhere and it is a wasted emotion. It is a horrible act he committed and yes I feel angry when I hear about such things happening. Hate is usually one sided I think, why would it matter if he hated back, he probably hates him self. A man that killed his family deserves to be hated, unfair? No!

I remember before that we had a groupd of friends. And she was invited by one of our friends. At first glance I no longer dont like her. I dont know what's with her that I dont like. I just feel irritated everytime I saw her face. I know I am being unfair but I just could not help. So to hide this feelings I just avoided my group of friends everytime she is with them. Everytime we have a hang out or bar hopping I would always ask first if she is coming. Once I knew she is coming I would not go with them.

I think it is totally bad because nobody have rights to kill any person in anger. I think anger is a very bad thing which always encourages peoples to doing any wrong with peoples. So I always take control on my anger. Because I am a person who have an angry nature. But I always take it in my control.

It is not always anger that motivates people to kill. Anger is always one of the main suspects but it is not always the murderer, it could be that the person enjoy killing people just for pleasure. Anger towards other people rarely tends to kill someone, usually it is the anger that has been built inside a person's mind that finally makes a decision to make a move. It's a good thing to have control but how long can you control yourself, I think it won't be forever and you might snap one day. Have a nice day.
