"don't have them in public view. If they don't see it you won't get mugged
Although different , I had a cop tell me something similar . My car was broke in to by breaking a window and they took my radio . This may date me but it was a pull out radio . Thats a radio that you could just grab a handle and pull the whole thing out so it would not be stolen . The cop went on to tell me it was my fault the radio was stolen cus I did not take it in the house with me . The item in question was in a locked car in my driveway on private proprety and yet it"s my fault it got stolen . Next they will say if you didn't have such nice things in your house nobody would come take them .
