Honour amongst thieves.
The perpetrator of one of Liverpool's worst crimes of recent years has apparently been on the receiving end of some prison justice. It is commonly held and reported that 'honest criminals' don't like rapists,child molesters and child killers as they are beyond the pale. Just what is an honest criminal I wonder?..is the burglar who destroys the sanctity of an old ladies home and steals her life savings honest?...is the bank robber who traumatises a clerk with a shotgun in the face an honest criminal? Criminals are just criminals..no more no less and I have no time or sympathy for any.
