If someone walks into your house and steals your stuff, then they are responsible. It is irrelevant that you left the door open.
Why is it so hard to work that one out?
The same apologist argument has been made for rape, in that if a woman "looks like she wants it because she was dressed like a..." is a good reason for rape. Think about it.

Well, if you leave your picnic table in your yard and someone walks off with it and is caught, they are guilty of theft.
Stealing is stealing, whether your doors are locked or not. If you want to keep the honest man honest, lock your doors. Professional criminals will get in if the door is locked or not..

I have been having a argument of sorts with a few friends lately about this question. If you leave your door wide open and unlocked are you responsible if someone comes along and steals anything inside?
COmmon sense would say yes you bear soem responsibility correct? but for some reason my friend insist that no they are not at fault period.
What is your opinion on this question ATS?
