Killing, maiming and wilful destruction of property are as old as humanity. They are enmeshed in man's aggressiveness and violent behaviour as he interacts with other humans on an interpersonal and group level. While much of the daily violence like rape, assault, murder and robbery is perpetrated by individual criminals, some of it, like taxi wars, and clashes between rival political groups, is collective.
