Spanish burglar finds evidence of pedophilia, so tips off cops, OF COURSE.

I am not entirely certain why anybody would be surprised to hear that a burglar, having discovered that s/he had just robbed a pedophile soccer coach, would indeed tip off the authorities as a matter of simple civic duty:

The [stolen VHS] tapes had been placed beneath a brown car parked in the south-central [Spanish] city of Jaén, along with a note giving them the address of the suspect, police said in a statement.

“I have had the misfortune to have these tapes fall into my hands and feel  obliged to submit them so you can do your work and put this … in jail for life,” the anonymous note read.

I mean, there’s criminal, and then there’s evil.  By all means, let us vigorously prosecute burglary and put burglars in jail when we catch them, because stealing things is wrong. But let’s face it: if you had to choose between a burglar and a pedophile for your next door neighbor there really isn’t a choice at all, is there?

    It’s stuff like this that proves honor among thieves exists .. on some level, anyway.
    Honor among politicians appears to be extinct.

    Given the usual place of pedophiles in the criminal hierarchy, I’m not really surprised.
