Why Do People Leave Their Homes and Cars Unlocked in 2019?

I am not sure why in 2019 and with all of the crime that happens in neighborhoods, people are still leaving not only their cars, but there homes unlocked? Back in the day there was a time when you could easily leave your house unlocked on the block because you pretty much knew everybody and you didn't worry about someone breaking in. But those days are gone.

There has been a recent rash of burglaries in some south side neighborhoods and the alleged robbers attempting to break into these homes can clearly be seen on security cameras. What is surprising to know is that some people still leave doors to their homes unlocked. I can't ever imagine doing so, not even for a short period of time because you never know who is watching you come and go.

And believe it or not people leave their vehicles unlocked too! It doesn't matter that your car is parked in the driveway to your home or in the garage, anybody can just walk right up and get inside of your car. There have been reports of women in the western suburbs leaving their purses, cell phones and other valuables in their cars while they work out at the gym. Foolish.

You just can't trust anybody these days. I sometimes look side-eyed at a valet, not knowing what they are rummaging through in my vehicle when I hand over the keys to them. The bottom line is be safe wherever you are. It doesn't matter what the neighborhood or who your'e hanging around. Lock all of the doors and be aware of your surroundings at all times.
