It's a judgment call based on how well you know your own locale, and how much risk you're willing to accept.
This is how I roll. I really feel sorry for all the cyclist out there that live in such high crime areas. I do lock my bicycle up, but that only keeps the honest people honest. I leave my panniers, lights, saddle bag on pretty much all the time and never have had a problem. Only exception is there is a yearly local festival that can and does attract a lot of opportunistic individuals so I pretty much leave all the extras at home.
