"Honor among thieves" nghĩa là gì?

"Honor among thieves" = danh dự giữa những tên cướp -> cướp sẽ không cướp của nhau.

Ví dụ
"I grew up in the old school," Torres would often tell Cabral. "I got morals (đạo đức) and principles (quy tắc)." He had an odd reformulation (viết lại công thức) of the Golden Rule: "I have always believed there is honor among thieves. You respect the next thief."

Usually there is a place to complain about and weed out (loại bỏ) the miscreants (kẻ đê tiện) who defraud (lừa gạt) their own. This is a special section for "honor among thieves." When a deal between two cyber-criminals (tội phạm mạng) goes wrong, they seek justice from arbitrators (thẩm phán), who are usually forum administrators (quản trị diễn đàn). A forum admin can choose to ban an account of a cheater from the forum, destroying that person's hard-earned (khó kiếm) reputation (danh tiếng).

Completing a round of bounty hunting (săn tiền thưởng), the Mandalorian meets with Greef Carga (a charming Carl Weathers), the leader of a bounty hunting guild (yes, there is some honor among thieves) for a new job. This leads him into the employ of the Client, a mysteriously awesome Werner Herzog who might be slumming it (chọn sống ở nơi nghèo nàn), but hey, at least we get to hear him say the word “parsec (đơn vị đo khoảng cách các ngôi sao).”
