Why are their faces not shown? Is this now a new development to protect these Criminals. These Tourists could have been badly hurt and it is known that that Tourists have even been killed by bag snatchers. The  punishment  handed out are a joke. Just slaps on the wrists are bad enough already and NOT a deterrent at all.
