I understand the thievery is way down in Saudi Arabia, compared to other countries. I suspect the prosthetic hand business is thriving, too.
The headless criminals really don't have a problem with recidivism, either. There's a lot of inequality and unfairness in the system, as to who gets the blade, and who gets a tongue-lashing from their Uncle Faisal, but there's inequity across social lines in every society I know about.
P.S. It's always nice, when a man can find steady work that fits in well with his personal belief-system, and general temperament.
