I would have thought the time to address this law was after the Kahui twins' murder, when not one of the twelve people present told the cops a thing.

On the other side, one of the Hole in the Wall Gang is a mate of mine (not Simon Kerr) and he served eight years for it. Stole loads of cash, never harmed anyone.
While I understand your point and don't want to derail the thread, I don't think it's fair to say that stealing loads of cash doesn't harm anyone. I understand that he's a friend of yours, but such crimes absolutely harm society, and depending on the circumstances of the theft, can harm individuals severely in ways not fully understood by the perpetrators of such crimes.
