Will the Government take heed?

Latest news on the consequences of making our society into a gambling society. It appears that addictive gamblers are turning to loan sharks and literally paying for it with their dignity, freedom and sometimes life. Some men were chained and locked up by loan sharks for defaulting on loans.

According to Datuk Michael Chong some 80% of the 870 cases involving loan sharks recorded by the MCA Public Services and Complaints Department since January last year involved habitual gamblers. In this process the family of the gamblers become victims.

Does'nt anyone in the Government know that gambling is addictive and kills families?

Can someone in the Government explain why we have turned the Klang Valley into a casino by having more than 65 slot machines clubs?

Who is making the money? At whose expense?
