In brief: Dangerous behaviors.

Agree with Dr. Law Yone.
Unfortunately both suicide and murder are common. However, having thoughts of taking ones own life or another's does not mean that the person will necessarily take action. The safest option is for someone with these thoughts to have them assessed.
