Gotta agree with the folks calling for better situational awareness. You're not being paranoid your just prepared. Nobody should be able to get the drop on you like that especially if your in an area of town known with a bad reputation. I personally have a deep burning hatred for thieves, the idea that someone thinks they're entitled to my belongings just because they can take them enfuriates me. There's no way I could sit back and let that kind of crap happen.
