I'm with Payxe - I can't imagine living in such a suspended state of fear. I think I'd move if I feared my city in such a way. I'm also Canadian, and our doors are 9 times out of 10 unlocked, we trust our neighbours and the people we meet out and about.
The fact is horrible things can potentially happen anytime, anywhere. It can happen at home, when you're just in the next room, or even sitting right there. Or you can raise your children in a bubble and the minute they outgrow their sheltered world tradgedy can strike. I am all about lowering risks wherever I think it is reasonable, but some of this seems sadly excessive to me. Should we also refrain from highway driving and taking trips that involve air travel? Should we never let our kids go play with their friends as they grow older? Where to draw the line?
Whatever any individual mom is comfortable with, I say thats great. But lets not get all high horsey and start calling the cops on each other. It's just not necessary, or nice for that matter.
