From Russell Nelson’s comment to Bruce Schneier’s Crypto-Gram of 15 November 2003:

Do you mean this as evidence to bolster your point or to counter it? It seems to me that if he never arrested even one pickpocket in a tie, that would be very good evidence that pickpockets wearing ties escape arrest.
