In our community/neighborhood there is an extremely verbally aggressive and confrontational member. He can be very intimidating to some of the members who have begun to avoid community meetings, community gatherings and public/shared spaces as a result of his behavior.
Law enforcement involvement is a null as he does not break laws. In addition, if he were, it would be very difficult to push through any type of charge which ultimately would only exacerbate the issue.
It is my opinion that even though he is a large fit male that he exhibits behavior that is founded in insecurity and fear. This is merely an assumption on my part of course. Are there any suggested strategies to bring this individual around to a place where he might have a change of heart regarding his tactics towards others? Any thoughts/ideas/comments are appreciated.
