  2. When talking about violence, we need to distinguish between intentional and unintentional (accidental) violence. Whether or not it is intentional, how much damage did the violence cause?

    For example, if a gun accidentally fires, what does the bullet hit? Ground? Valuable property? A person? If it hit property or a person, how much damage did it cause?

    Is shooting at a person and missing as violent or more/less violent than throwing a stone and hitting a person?

    As you see, for psychologists, just defining violence has its complexities.

    I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
