Is it alright to make excuses when a violent person has suffered?

Is it alright to make excuses when a violent person has suffered?

Compassion is gold. However, I feel uneasy whenever someone makes excuses for a violent behavior by saying they have suffered in their childhood for instance.

When I was a child, I was taught I had to tolerate some abuse because my mother suffered as a child.

I understood that abuse was to be excused whenever an adult acted from their wounded inner child.

Today, such a message makes me angry, especially when it is taught to my own child.
