As a child, J. Paul, his siblings and mother were physically and emotionally abused by his alcoholic father.

Paul proceeded to get his dream job and fulfill the promise he had made to himself as a boy; to arrest people like his father. Once he became a police officer, J. Paul set the bar even higher for himself and went on to become a subject matter expert as a Hostage Negotiator, Detective, International Peace Keeper, and instructor.
