One of the concepts I was speaking of appears in Dennis Jones’ link regarding the lunatic in the gent’s lavatory: note how the perpetrator “sized up” his potential prey? It’s practically a job interview, “Victim Wanted, Apply In Person”. Now that I think of it, predators such as the one described in the link may have an untapped corporate human resource potential: they would likely prove most intuitive in identifying nice, docile employees for targets of management hostility.
I’ve found that most Law Enforcement Officers have a vast practical knowledge of the types of violence as the really occur vice the often mistaken notions and myths generated by professional “self-defense experts”. From a self-defense standpoint, our training should focus on the people we actually have to deal with before, during, and after the violence, rather than the nearly mythical boogieman in the bushes.
