They interpret it as saying that people are inherently, by nature, untrustworthy -- - to be suspected, assumed guilty until proven innocent, etc. They regard with great suspicion any person who is optimistic about people and about possible relationships with strangers. They usually approach new people and relationships expecting that things will go wrong --- and sure enough they do; proving that their suspicions were well founded, and their theology is well founded.
