she complains about getting broken into....she knew her door wasn't locked, yet she left it that way, cuz its been like that for 'years n years"...well now she gotten broken into, and her housemates things were stolen....and she STILL wont put a lock on the door...i told her sh'es taking her life in her hands....with all the home invasions happening, people in this day and age are nuts....times have changed and its no longer safe to leave your doors unlocked when you are not home.

I don't think it's ever been really safe to do that.

That's crazy.Things around here are locked down like Fort Knox,even though there aren't any break-ins...you never know people aren't trusting anymore,it's sad but true.

Just because she left her door unlocked does not mean someone has a right to come in and take her stuff.  She can be upset about it if she wants to.  Things are not any worse now than they were in the past you just hear about it more because of the news and internet.

What did she think was going to happen if she left her home unsecured? Her housemates need to move or demand a lock in the door.

I couldn't do that. Both my parents and inlaws leave their doors unlocked. Our town has like a 0% robbery rate but I still can't do it! Both of them hardly lock their cars ether.

Thats kind of like telling a rape victim that she deserved what happened to her because of her short skirt.

If somebody really wants to break into your house it isn't going to matter whether the door is locked or not, just sayin'.

I do lock my doors, but I can't tell you for a fact if all of my doors are locked every time I leave or go to bed for the night. My front door is always locked unless my DD is in the front yard playing, but my two back doors stay unlocked sometimes, unless DH is more meticulous about it and I just don't know it.

No it is not! I am a rape survivior and I strongly disagree. She is still a victim of a robbery but having something stolen is no way the same victimization of a woman being violently and forceably raped! I could not predict I was going to be raped but you can somewhat predict that if you leave a door unlocked someone uninvited may walk in.
