The gang's exploits have gripped the Russian media. More shocking, however, is the public's reaction – with 70% of Russians, according to one radio poll, describing the gang members as "partisans" or "Robin Hoods". Only 30% considered the police killers to be bandits, the poll revealed. One blogger even compared them to Che Guevara.
Think if that happened in America.. Probably 99.9% of people would consider them terrorists.
