69. Well, that's just good common sense
But a lot of places simply don't have anything worthwhile to steal anymore.


Eh, it's a complex problem, compounded by the fact that governments operate in generalities (overall crime rates) while the poor guy getting robbed deals with specifics ("Hey! I'M being robbed!")

And there are other things to consider... what if they're threatening? Are you obliged to risk death to avoid taking the risk of hurting the criminal? If you just roll over and shrug it off, will you be a prime target for future crime? Will you or your family be at risk in those future if they come back? What will they demand next time?
