Quote:
Violence—especially assassination—is an event in which a person,
triggered by an event or change, and operating in a situation
that facilitates, permits, or does not prevent violence
, takes
action against a designated target. These four elements—the
potential attacker, event, situation, and target—form the basis
for a threat assessment investigation.


Quote:
The third factor to consider is the individual’s
specific situation at the time of peak stress. Do people around
the person support, permit, or ignore the threat of violence? Do
family, friends, colleagues, or supervisors say—directly or indirectly—
that violence is not a solution to problems and is not
permitted? Or is the possibility of violence condoned, accepted,
or ignored? People around a person who is acutely at risk of
behaving in a violent manner can act to prevent violence.


All of the normal OffTheWallery aside, these are quotes from a fifteen year old article that you will find with a simple google search. The bolding is mine.

edit: can't spell for squat some days

Pre-emptive defence measures? I am not sure that's such a good idea in general.
