81. Well, at least I can be sarcastic
Thinking thieves should get a pass doesn't strike me as progressive. Sounds more like you want better work rules. For as long as man has existed taking stuff that's not yours has been an open invitation to get your head bashed in.

It is that overblown sense of entitlement that thieves and their apologists imbue them that leads to much conflict.

A prime example is in kindergarten. Absent the higher authority to impose order the bullies and the bastards will take all the best toys and use force and violence to impose their will on the others. Those that fight back get left alone. Those that don't keep getting picked on.

When faced with an attack on your person or your property you can acquiesce, resist, or hope that someone will intervene on your behalf and do what you do not have the will to do for yourself.

I will say one thing about cutting off the hands of thieves. I saw a noticeable number of one-handed people in Saudi Arabia when stationed there. I don't recall seeing any with BOTH hands missing.
