I don't even lock my garage. Don't lock the house unless I'm going to be gone overnight.
I don't think that the "burglaries" have much to do with people losing their jobs. Normal people don't start breaking into other people's houses just because they're out of work.
They break in because (A) They've not been taught that its wrong and (B) There's no consequences if they DO break in. That has little to do with having a job or not ...
Like the "looters" in some of our big Democratic-ruled inner cities. They don't steal food; they steal sound systems and Nike shoes.
