As we continue with our theme from last week looking at the general stages to crime, today we analyze the next three in relation to Wendy’s actions thus far.
Detention/Containment of Victim:
At this stage in the perpetration of the crime the victim is often restrained using various methods:
- Blunt trauma
- Threats of violence or death to victim or family members.
This is the stage where the actual act against the victim occurs and can include any one or a combination of the following:
All victims will exhibit two major forms of response in some manner:
Grabs the injury in an attempt to limit aggression, pleads for the aggressor to stop inflicting pain, fights back, attempts to flee or escape, panics, stops resisting in hopes the attack will cease.
This is a result of autonomic nervous system responses.
At this stage one normally can expect hormonal responses, rise in blood pressure, shock, etc.
Analyze Wendy’s actions in the “Un”missable series and see how many of the actions above apply to Wendy, then comment or send me an email, I’d love to have a dialog with you.
