well do you think he would act on those thoughts? or why he has those thoughts.. it could just be hes under a lot of stress or very depressed.. also could be a type of personality disorder i know borderline personality causes a lot of anger and resentment. i would STRONGLY encourage him to get help.. and let him know just because he has bad thoughts doesn't make him a bad person and that there is help that works that could make him feel better even if he feels hopeless..if he is showing any signs of psychopathy you should get him help immediately. i hope things work out for you!
