A gambling habit cited as part of the reason for the crime. There have been several of these now where gambling addiction seems to be the reason for very significant thefts.

Must be wonderful for someone to be perfect.  Most people are just ordinary people.

Not about being perfect. It's about being sensible and not self centred
