A dangerous person is one who is capable of great violence and has it under control.

Wouldn't it be the one who "doesn't have it under control"?

The one who has it under control does not stand out as a dangerous person and is much more dangerous.

Jordan Peterson and Jocko Willink have a good podcast interview on the very topic.

(…an interesting pair indeed - a pasty academic and a brutish warrior…but you can see they both have much in common and are each warriors in a different sphere…)

Also Chris Williamson interviewing John Lovell...
