Find out about crime in your area. Maybe if you can show her that someone in the neighborhood was broken into she'll talke it more seriously.
People in good neighborhoods are killed/broken into every day. Why would a thief want to break into a house in the ghetto?
We had a TV anchor woman raped then killed with a hammer. And an old lady had her throat cut during a breakin.
Both of them where in nice neighborhoods.
Someone mentioned Dr. William Petit. He came home and was held up by two men just released from prison. He had two underage daughters and a wife. They tied him up and beat him with a bat...raped one of the daughters and wife...then set them all on fire. The Dr. got away and the neighbor didnt even recognize him, he was beaten so bad. His whole family was killed.
