We grow up learning to respect each other’s property and space. It’s something both my kids are learning about now. And they get it. Taking something from others (or invading their space) is just not normal for a well-adjusted person. This is what makes a break-in so dangerous.
People that break into homes are not well adjusted and are not normal. They are often driven by irrational thoughts and ideas, brought about by mental illness and/or drug use. An intruder may not have a sound state of mind, but that does not make them dumb. Burglars can actually be quite clever.
