Hey Rob:

What is it with you and the mall kidnapping? Do you know that only only a tiny percentage of child kidknapping's are done by strangers?
Most are children involved in custody battles.
In most serious crimes (rape, kidnapping, murder), the victim and perpetrator know each other - or are at least "acquainted". "Random attacks" statistically pale in comparison, and in those cases a better sense of "awareness" (which is learned in Aikido, or any other martial art) could help cut down the number of those incidents.

"The ultimate aim of martial arts is not having to use them." - Miyamoto Musashi
