My husband, looks on all strangers as potential thieves and villains. We do have a friend who is similar.
Say the council for example put in security cameras somewhere he will say "won't be long before a vandal destroys those" perhaps a new wall will go up somewhere "there'll be graffiti on that before you know it".
He believes we are going to be robbed, broken into etc. etc. I don't like to tempt fate but although we live in London and yes there are break-ins occasionally, it's not downtown Johannesburg here.
I am grateful for the burglar alarm we have fitted as we did have a spate of break-ins a couple of years back. We do as well have a dummy camera on the front door a working one on the back of our garage, little spikes of plastic (with sign to warn) on the garage roof and then today he remarked burglars could, if they could get entry to the garden remove fence panels and he's seen some devices which locks them in place. Thankfully, he is not going down that avenue.
I'm not burying my head in the sand although he would probably disagree but I can't spend time worrying about what might happen.
