Did he have a good childhood? If he grew up abused or neglected, then that would account for his killing 'gene'. I agree that animals will kill to either gain territory or to protect their territory or themselves, so that might be built into our system. But with the proper upbringing, which involves learning to respect other people and not treating life as something cheap, I don't think we would need to worry about anyone killing anyone.

Or even better, if we went the route of the Bonobos and just made love instead of war, and let the women rule the world instead of the men! :)
