Or they hound you later, claim you've cheated them. They are a no-good lot or they wouldn't be hooligans. Violence is a form of stupidity, and it's all they know. Herr Doktor Riemenschneider, the brains behind the heist, is literal in his appraisal of the hardman he needs, but his audience is quick to expand the definition to all the crooks thirsty for power in the city.

This being a classic pulp and not a modern blockbuster with A-list actors, most of them will not escape with the loot.La jungla de cemento - Castellano - 1982
The solution instead is presented by the two characters from the opening chapter: These two refuse to accept defeat in the face of institutionalized corruption and still believe the system can be saved from within, not by running away from the jungle.
