Default What's fear aggression

What does it look like? I think most times what's labeled fear aggression is really something else.

For example, if a dog runs up to a person passing by and attacks them - it doesn't look like fear. Something is wrong, a dog shouldn't be attacking a 'non threat' but it doesn't sound like fear to me.

I've been told that dogs that do that are insecure and that makes more sense. So they run up barking and possibly biting out of the 'attack before I'm attacked' notion.

Anyway, interested in thoughts about all of this
