Temporary insanity, crimes of passion, and crimes of opportunity. You assume that bad guys are always bad guys on some level but its not true. We are all exposed to violence whether its on TV or video games and even you friendly animated cartoon. People are not inherently good, fear of punishment keeps most of us in line.
