This is the second of a two-article series in which violent and non-violent criminals are compared. In the first article the focus fell on biographical variables and childhood family relations as possible characteristics that may distinguish violent from non-violent offenders. As mentioned in the first article, it is important that, as a result of the great negative impact violence has on both the individual and the society, research on violent offenders should not be neglected. This is especially true in South Africa where violent crimes are rampant (see http:www.saps.co.za).
