(1.) In some instances, it is considered morally good to use violence.

(3.) Therefore, anger can be a good moral motivation.

Con

Anger is not considered as a good moral motivation because it only enablers the person to handle their anger in violent ways. It is not a good to relieve anger by one acting violently because one's judgment is clouded and one is not thinking rational. once anger has filled the mind the actions or then unpredictable and the harm can be severer because no one knows the extent of the actions and how it may be carried out because one is anger. Anger is not a good way to relieve stress.

Pro

Sentence 1: Violence is considered to be morally good in some instances, so that is not a valid reason for anger to not be considered a good moral motivation.
Sentence 2: You are assuming that when we are angry, we automatically lose our ability to think rationally. That is not the case, for in the event that such a feeling takes over our beings and judgment, it ceases to be anger and transforms into rage.
Last sentence: You might be right, but this is entirely irrelevant debate subject. No one ever said that there exists a necessary relationship between relieving stress and morally good actions.
