Any dog can be trained to become mean and dangerous. This is caused by human error such as praising the dog when he or she jumps or barks and also by encouraging rough play with other people and/or animals. My family has had many Rottweilers in the past and they were the sweetest dogs ever. My favourite was Alpine who died in 2003. As long as you start training early 4-5 weeks old you should start with basic along with socalization and continue to enforce the rules you will have a well behaved dog...also never hit or yell at your dog because it does nothing. Use a firm, low voice and never use the crate as a punishment, only for traveling and bedtime.
