why introduce casinos to sg and cause these problems in the 1st place?
you can buy better gear but you can't buy a better eye
Ho ho ho. Don't blame the captain's woes on the casino. The presence of the casino only offers him a choice to sin, but in the end he has to make that choice himself.
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.
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!"
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.
