True, but the people who don't look at the evidence or think about the data are in the majority. They get all their information from these guys. They vote, too.

That's why this is bad - a bunch of rich guys are using the ignorant masses as a way to trade the future of the planet for their nth new mansion in some tax haven or other.

Yep.

The idea is to make the thief think that breaking in would be a bad idea. If he doesn't make that decision then no amount of fancy sensors will make any difference, he'll just walk in, grab some stuff then walk out admiring all your expensive flashing lights and sirens. He knows the cops won't turn up for half an hour (if at all).

You'll still have a broken window, broken doors, etc. to clean up next morning.

No, that's far too simple. He's after a high-tech solution.

I still want to know how sending an email will prevent the burglars. Is he going to put up a sign: "Warning! This shop protected by email!" ?

I'm not sure I'd hire him as a security consultant. I might do something crazy like ask a local cop what to do. Somebody who knows the area and knows what sort of people break into shops. That's just me though...YMMV.
