    I'd like to think the casino as a chance to let people know their own true self. It exposes the previously hidden corrupt and greedy nature of individuals.

    cause they are willing to pay whatever amount of land that the government will auction and even help offer to reclaim land from marina bay. Of course singapore loves them. There will be casualties here and there insignificant in the big picture

    Mr Adelson said: "How much more land as a percentage of what we have? Oh how about I am looking for 10 times! We can use whatever amount of land the government will put up for auction, any amount of land that they will put up. This property is so enormously successful."

    Mr Adelson said: "I even offered to go out to the water and reclaim some land!"

    From what I have researched about him and LVS (that time whacking his stocks in 2009), he will do it, but not in the near future.

    I won't see the casinos as a 'cause' per se. Exacerbation of a pre-existing condition, maybe.

    It is only juicy news because he happened to be SAF officer.
    The casino is not to blame. He could have lost money in mahjong in his neighbourhood haunt, or stocks/shares or even on property speculation.

    Allowing himself to be bossed around by a loan shark to do evil acts of harassment shows that he was not SAF officer material in the first place.

    It is a mistake to cane him only. The law should provide for the loan shark mastermind Ah Seng who asked the captain to do these harassment to 30 years jail+24 strokes+$5 million fine - all non-negotiable. It should be an automatic sentence, like death for drug trafficking above a certain weight of the drug.

    if he'd "won exceeding 5 figures", then he won't be in the news, let alone jailed. Nothing to do with the casino. Life is about taking chances and making choices.
