To say that a person should lock their door if they don't want to be robbed is indeed placing some of the blame of future robberies on people who don't lock their door. This is not a logical fallacy. It is fact.

I suggest certain posters on these boards brush up a little on what is and is not logical.

So you are also saying they won't report the crime out of shame?

You say this is proof are "asking for it?"

You say there is some stigma, word and someone using that word out there to disempower them and victim blame them?

BTW, a final exam isn't a final grade. Just noting that little omission there.

I don't think I every took a class as narrow as logic and drafting. What would be the purpose of such a class? Was it for drafting legal documents?

Of course that's what he's saying. He's all about blaming the victim whether it's a rape victim, a robbery victim, or a cancer patient.

My house was robbed not too long ago. My back gate didn't have a lock on it. Never thought to put one on there. Hadn't been one there for 50+ years. But apparently it's my fault I got robbed.

Now just like Tonton, why don't you list who called you names related to this, shamed you or failed to take action on the theft related to that, and finally who labeled you related to that and we can all go plan a nice walk to protest it.

Just like if you don't want to be mugged, don't travel alone, don't look like a tourist, don't wander into dark areas, etc.

Fit into the crowd where ever you go.Don't look real sexy and wear not to provocative attire.carry mace with you if you can or a whistle.There are plenty of sick individuals out there and just be alert all the time.
