Everyone has the potential for violence in them. We must work hard to overcome the animal part of our nature and live in the proper way.

Anger is a normal human emotion, but feelings of violence and wanting to hurt or kill someone when you are angry are not (except under very special circumstances, such as if your child were in danger). People who feel excess anger to the point of even having these violent thoughts, as well as those who act on them, have not learned the appropriate coping strategies to deal with their emotions, or they may have a mental illness or personality disorder. Either way, these people need professional counseling and behavioural therapy to learn how to control their anger.
