One of the first things we noticed in San Diego is that windows aren’t barred here presumably because theft is much less of a concern in this area. There is one house not too far from my apartment which has bars on its windows. As I passed it I wondered what the public perception of this one house with bars. Do people think that they’re paranoid? Do they dislike these people because of how they make the neighborhood appear? Do they think that they’re distrustful of neighbors?
