Did this happen to you? Ask for help against a thief and the policeman investigates you. The people of the order don’t like to deal with disorder. It’s easier to search the victim. This reminds me of a story:
Hodja’s donkey was stolen from his shed. He rushed to complain to the magistrate of the village.
“Misfortune,” he said, “my help, my precious, my only donkey was stolen!”
“Tell me exactly how it happened!” commanded the asas bashi.
Nasrudin looked at him surprised:
“How should I know how it happened? I was not there when it was stolen!”
