What are the traits of violence? The hints before someone snaps? Ah, if only we knew, we could prevent massacres like Newtown from occurring. Or could we?

Back in 2008, I published one doctor’s take. Here’s the link. I thought it would be a good time to look back and see how right he was. And what we can add to his traits. And even if we identify a potentially violent person, what can we do?

I’d like to get your comments and suggestions. It might mean the difference in life and death in survival situations.
