In fact, I would guess that in the general case, the less we do to
mitigate or prevent a specific harm, the higher the probability that
it will occur.
Thefts don't occur more often because it is to some extent socially
unacceptable, we close and lock doors, and (occasionally) punish
people for theft. In the absence of any of these, it might be a
completely different story.
