Thanks for chiming in, I assumed I was alone here. I know this is always a risk, but I've been fortunate enough not to have experienced this personally, as I work with higher functioning people. I don't worry about "crazy" people; I worry about the pi$$ed-off parent who lost custody and wants to take it out on someone. Leaving an office park alone at night isn't the safest thing either.
