True, you're stupid if you leave just a flimsy lock, or none, on the door of
your house--but that doesn't give moral justification to the burglar who
empties it out. And this was robbery, pure and simple. Like a pickpocket's
accomplice who creates a distraction, this guy (if he's indeed the guilty
one) took advantage of other people's trust and stole a vast amount of money.
"White collar" robbery (in this case, if they've got the right man,
white-tee-shirt) is just as heinous as a stick-up in the street--and often
far more damaging in financial terms.The naivete of the victim doesn't excuse
the perfidy of the perpetrator.
