Yes, I live in a different place, but it is the same kind of place.<quoted text>
No stupid, I was at work and my house was unlocked. Got jury duty today, be leaving shortly, the house will be unlocked.
Maybe you just live in a different kind of place than the one you grew up in. Go back to what you grew up in and leave your doors unlocked. Nothing has changed beyond more people living in denser populations. When I live in cities or the suburbs I lock my doors. In the suburbs the biggest threat is breakins by bored local teens.
Y'all have whipped yourselves into a paranoid frenzy, feels good 'cause it gets your blood moving. Fact is crime is down in this country, lower than it was has been at any other time in our lifetimes.
I know very well what it is like where I grew up. My family still lives there. All I have to do to find out what is going on there is just call a brother or sister or my mother or any one of a dozen cousins I grew up with when we didn't have to lock the house.
So, back to the question you are trying to run away from:
Why did this country change from a place where you didn't need to lock your house to a country where everything not locked up will get stolen?
