Who among you has not been the victim of a crime? Did anyone ever steal from you? Burglarize your home? Intentionally push you? How did you feel? I could tell you how I felt when I was victimized by a crimewhen, for example, a burglar stole my jewelry box containing treasured and irreplaceable family heirlooms. But you already know how I felt. You know the feeling of loss. You know the feeling of having been invaded. You know the feeling of being vulnerable and the attendant angst and fear for yourself and loved ones. And you know the feeling of anger-the incense that arises as the repeat dialer in your brain keeps asking: "How could someone do this? How could someone be like this?"
