Who is responsible if I leave something valuable in my front yard unattended and it gets stolen?
The thief. No one else.
That I don't leave valuables unattended in my front yard is accepting that thieves abound.
Locking my front door is a similar acceptance. An unlocked door is not an invitation to trespass. Even an open door is not such an invitation.
Attempting to shift the blame to the person whose property has been stolen or house violated is wrong. Perhaps more wrong than the actual trespass or theft.
Making life more difficult for thieves may be a prudent decision for a property owner to take, but that does not mitigate any of the guilt for the thief!
