      there is no policy that will cover illegal acts, and I do not believe it is legally possible to force insurers to pay for such.  I have attended a number of continuing education seminars with presentations by lawyers who specialize in malpractice law, and that is what they tell me.  

      Furthermore, no legislative body is going to pass laws requiring insurance to cover criminals and crime.

        Thieves recently broke into my supposedly secure storage facility.  They cut the locks off several units and took thousands of dollars worth of stored stuff from us and from others.  Unless I had a rider on my own insurance covering that stuff, I am just out what was stolen.  The thieves actually had insurance, but their policy will not pay for losses incurred by their victims.
