"People willing to face consequences are still ruddy criminals.... "

On December 1, 1955 in Montgomery, Alabama, Rosa Louise McCauley Parks broke the law she refused to obey the order of bus driver James Blake to give her seat to a white man. This led the conductor to call police and she was arrested

Starting out as a leader of an underground political movement called the African National Congress (ANC), Nelson Mandela played a part in many dramatic demonstrations against the white-ruled government. In 1962, he broke South African law and left the country without permission for a conference in Algeria and to raise funds for the ANC. On his return he was arrested, tried, and convicted

Ruddy/Bloody criminals?

Well yes 'criminals' by simple definition - they both knowingly broke the laws of their countries at the time
Do they deserve your 'expletive attributive'?

Whatever.......
