    obvious, you need guts to do classic crimes; cybercrimes , you just stay hidden behind a computer.

    Earth .... occasionally
    I thought the same thing .... and the wording made me chuckle :)

    " Traditional crime " made me think of crimes of the " lead pipe " variety.
    .... the others being committed with a silicon chip .

    More seriously , I reckon the vast majority of the world's law enforcement personnel have neither the training
    nor experience to tackle cybercrime .... and it's going to be a very long catch-up !
