Is it really so strange...

I'm with you every word.
IIRC Johnson (who blames the riots on "over-entitlement") claims to have thrown a flowerpot through a restaurant window the night his generation of the Bullingdon Club were arrested. OK, that’s not setting fire to a building with people in it, but for the people in the restaurant it is still terrifying and certainly a far worse an assault on civil society than receiving a pair of stolen pants, for which I understand the going rate is presently 5 months in the clink*.
*£20,000 of expenses theft as an MP gets you 4 1/2 months. I understand that for the riots, context is important. I'd say it's pretty important when you're talking about MPs stealing from the nation.
