I think one of the reasons the elderly are losing their aura of sacred cows when it comes to being targets of crime, is that so few of them survive from the really bad times - the wars and the Depression. A man who was in WW2 at age 18 in 1945 would now be 90. If we look at today's pensioners at the younger end, they're probably more associated with Teddy Boys and hippies.
