During early college school career (~age 20), Christian was held up at knife point. Christian really wasn’t prepared and really fumbled and otherwise utterly mishandled the situation. The muggers, angry and impatient, assaulted, stabbed, and ultimately robbed Christian. Christian spent a few days in the hospital and a few weeks of recovery. The muggers were never fully identified or known to be apprehended.
The incident was a forming point in Christian’s life. A latent interest in law and order resulted in a conscious shaping of degree, grad school, etc. to go into the Criminal Justice program. Initially, the intent was close to formal law enforcement, Later, this migrated to working more strategically and fundamentally to address the reasons for crime.
Christian signed up for a few self-defense classes, learned to shoot, enjoyed this for its own sake, and has continued practicing the art of shooting with the University’s gun club. This has built up his confidence in “being hands on”. Christian hasn’t had a substantially similar experience as the stabbing/mugging, and is uncertain how he’ll react. He has talked to many officers about how they handle such situations, listens closely, and does what little he can to practice.
The gun club has a fairly transient population, and Christian has emerged as a longer-term member. The club shoots at the same range many of the local police officers.
Formally studying crime has given Christian a good understanding of many of the social drivers for crime. As a result, he abstractly has empathy or pity for those stuck in a criminal rut. He does, however, make a big distinction between those driven to crime out of lack of choice, versus those consciously shaping their lives for crime, or reveling in their aggressive tendencies. Bullying and random violence are not well tolerated.
