Yes, your point is right.
However if others rob a bank and do not get caught, does it make it acceptable for you to do it?
You may challenge the fact that the two that have been prosecuted are from indian subcontinent origin, you may recall the case of a british tourist prosecuted for sex attempt at the beach!
So law aplies to anybody when the choose so!
Hypocrisy, sure. Naivety, also!
