why does he hurt others

Cole had anger problems because he said that nobody cared about him. Throughout the story Cole relates flashbacks of his childhood. Although his parents had money, his father and mother were both alcoholics. When father drank, he would get violent. Mother went into an alcoholic stupor and did nothing to protect him. Cole channels his anger into doing bad things. This includes stealing and beating up innocent people like Peter.
