Human Combative Behavior Presentation

  1. HUMANCOMBATIVEBEHAVIOURInsights from the Animal Kingdomand Statistical Analysis
  2. Fundamentally, how andwhy do humans engage in combat with one another?
  3. Well look at howanimals engage in combat as well asanalyse statistics from millions and millions of violent crime incidents from around the world to determine some truths
  5. By studying animals in the wild engage in COMBAT, great insight can be had into how humans engage in combat
  6. "It is appropriate... to look into both mans cultureand his biology, (i.e., animal behavior) tounderstand mans biologically based,culturally manifested, combative behavior." -Hunter B. Armstrong
  7. In the ANIMALKINGDOM, animalsengage in combat in justTWO fundamental ways
  8. Same Species: Dominance, highly emotional, mating rights...
  9. rarely lethal, presence of others, intimidation, opponent known
  10. Same Species is ALPHA MALEType Combative Behaviour
  11. Inter Species: Predator versus Prey, stalk, hunt for food...
  12. more lethal, motivated by resource, dispassionate, initiated not provoked
  13. Inter Species is PREDATORYType Combative Behaviour
  14. Significant differences
  15. ALPHA MALE PREDATORY (Same Species) (Inter Species)Highly emotional Not emotional Status Resources Rarely lethal More lethal Intimidation Dispassionate Posturing Deception/surprise
  17. Humansengage in combatwith one another thesame way animals do(but within our own species)
  18. In Human to HumanCombat, there are also onlyTWO types of attackers
  19. Alpha Male
  20. Predator
  21. ALPHA MALEHuman Combative Behaviour is mostly seen under the umbrella of ASSAULT (street fights, punch ups, brawls etc.)
  22. Alpha Male: Dominance, highly emotional, reputation...
  23. PREDATORY Human Combative Behaviour is seen inMUGGINGS, ROBBERY and KIDNAPPING along with most other violent crimes
  24. Predatory: Resource driven, stalk, dispassionate...
  26. Now that you have seen the logic, check out the data... Obtained and analysed fromGovernment statisticsfrom the US, UK, Australia and Canada From millions of incidents...
  27. Comparison Between Assault and RobberyRobbery is most common Predatory crime (includes mugging)
  28. Stats: Mostcases of Assault Assaultwere betweenpeople whoknew each other
  29. Assault Stats: Only a small number of Assault cases involved a weapon
  30. Stats: MostAssault Assaults occur at home or place of entertainment
  31. Stats: Abouthalf of all AssaultAssault casesinvolved peoplewho had beendrinking
  32. ASSAULTStatistical Analysis same results as Logic Same dynamic as two animals ofsame species engaging in combat
  33. Stats: MostRobberies were Robberybetween people whodid NOT know eachother
  34. Stats: Almost Robberyhalf of allRobberycasesinvolveweapons
  35. Stats: Most RobberiesRobbery occur on street or other open land
  36. RobberyStats: Only small amount of peopleinvolved under influence of alcohol
  37. ROBBERY Statistical Analysis same results as LogicSame dynamic as animals of different species engaging in combat
  38. 10 Times More Likely
  39. Statistical Outcomes Assault Robbery (Alpha Male) (Predatory) Unknown VictimOpponent Known Half Unarmed Weapons Social Open Land Half Alcohol Low Alcohol More common Less common
  41. Comparing Alpha Male and Predatory Violent CrimeCovering millions and millions of incidents in the US over a 50 year timeline
  42. and this next slide is important
  43. Technical Predatory Analysis Alpha Male Robbery Assault Murder Rape Property
  44. SignificantDifferences
  45. Events affecting changes in violent crime rates affected the two types independently
  46. 5. RECAP
  47. ALPHA MALEPREDATOR Same species Inter species Status driven Resource Assault driven Less lethal Robbery + More More lethal common Less common Around other In quiet public people areas Gradual crime Bumpy crime trends trends
