This is regarding the Hatton Garden heist.

I don't quite understand how their attitude towards the crime ties in with their usual demand for very tough justice and their usually quite graphic wishes of what should happen to criminals....

Nicely done and well played. Always good to see non-violent crimes pay off.

Is it maybe:

* Reminds them of Good Old Days™ crimes?
* British criminals rather than Romanians, which would garner a very different reaction?
* Getting one over on the rich?
* ^ Rich Jews?!

Not to dismiss there being some underlying hatred in mailites' minds, but I think there is a ring of truth to that thought. That these audacious, lovable rogues are invariably violent thugs doesn't seem to register.

Propah nawty but loved their mums. Looked after their own. Never stole from their own, mainly because there was nothing to steal. Etc.

Man, 45, who was jailed for a year when he snapped and punched girl, 11, playing 'knock-and-run' is released early after appeals court says sentence was 'too harsh'
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article ... harsh.html

Bearing this in mind....
Lee Kilburn snapped when the youngsters kept knocking on his front door and running away, as he was trying to comfort his partner who had just been diagnosed with a terminal illness.
Perhaps a suspended sentence would have been more compassionate. It was a terrible time for him. I can appreciate the strain he was under. But still....
The girl suffered a broken nose and needed surgery after Kilburn caught up with her and punched her twice in the face, the court was told.
I get the impression the Mailites aren't really taking into account his circumstances...they just seem to believe it's okay to break a kids nose because 'youth of today'.

I'd have thought 'Knock & Run' would've reminded them of the Good Old Days where kids were safe to go play outside and have some harmless fun.
