How do you tell when an act of violence is actually targetted rather than some "random" attack/s?
Do I need a detective to help watch my steps?
Hi , I don't know much about this but I will make a guess if I may . This is such an interesting question . I wish there wasn't actions like this going on but we all know about them . First , I would think if there are more than one attacking the other its premeditated . Usually when one attacks another the coward bring a flock with them ... Sad
Second, If it is a one on one attack ,its random if the method of attack method involves no weapons or the attacker is pretty clumsy in their behavior .. A thought out attack is more a spot on get you're victim kinda deal ...... Always watch your back
That is a good question, it all depends on a lot of factors I would think. You have to first assess your present situation. Do you have one or more people that you know at work or in another social arena that dislike you in any way, or would want harm to come to you? If so, this may be some form of jealous act or hate crime and someone may be either trying to scare you, or hurt you in some way. This could be a targeted act of violence. On the other hand, if you find yourself in the middle of lets say a crossfire between another individual. This could be just a random event, targeted at another individual and you just happened to be at the wrong place, at the wrong time. Remember there are a lot of individuals out there walking around, who need psychological help and often do not seek it. You may randomly be attacked by a mentally incapacitated individual, basically because they are having a bad day and you are the one, they happen to run into on the way home and want to harass. Otherwise, I would just keep aware of your surroundings everyday and keep familiar with the areas outside of your home and or at work. See if there are strangers in the neighborhood, who have been hanging around for a few days or more or those who look like their up to no good or suspicious. If worse comes to worse, higher a body guard if you can afford one, or hire a friend to frighten and individual who may be thinking about trying to harm you. They will in turn think twice about their actions. I hope this had helped you somewhat in answering your question. And for the life of me, I know many people have various reasons for wanting to harm other individuals, but for the life of me, cannot understand why they would want to hurt a fellow human. Good luck to you!
ussaly there is some form of evidence suggesting a target or other type of offense
If you are the victim or not. It is always personal when you are the victim. Randomness left with the first blow.
Well, I had encountered a random attack while sitting at a coffee shop seeing a group of people rushing in to attack. Luckily I had avoid this disaster by moving away from the crowd. The rest are unfortunate to be stuck in the group and got beaten. Less than a minute, the group of people just left the scene.

Why we create comfort zones and then find it difficult to come out of it?It is well known that living in the comfort zone for too long limits growth and sets in boredom and dissatisfaction. I wonder why living comfort zone is hard for many people.
