Why people don't steal in Saudi Arabia
In Saudi Arabia and in many other Islamic countries, the penalties for crimes have been very harsh throughout the times and that’s why the crime rate there has been really low, at least until the '90s when lots of foreign workers moved there and their punishment methods started to get more criticism from other countries.
For example, for a theft, your hand (or both and even legs) can be cut off from the joint. This is done with a special knife and the procedure is watched by doctors to prevent infections.
This punishment is not being determined easily and to earn it, you have to commit many crimes and the dread of this rigorous punishment prevents people from committing crimes.
