Letters: Karma will get you

Robbery will lead to bad karma for thieves says letter writer

I couldn’t believe that Gary from Tale of a Whale has been victimized yet again by a robbery.

Whoever is targeting this man’s business (and in turn his personal life) obviously has no clue whom they’re dealing with.

Working in one of the shops along Otter Point Road, I have got to know Gary as  a kind and generous individual who is the epitome of a good neighbour.

He’s always willing to lend a hand to help in any way he can and always has a friendly “Hello, how’re you doing” to greet you.

To the person or persons who have done this injustice to Gary, let me say this:

Either you are extremely insensitive or cruel or both and you just don’t care.

Or you need the money desperately. If the latter is the case, seek out help.

In the end this kind of behaviour will only come back and bite you, not just legally but karma wise as well.

By the way, if you aren’t schooled in the term ‘karma’ here is a definition:  the principle of retributive justice determining a person’s state of life and the state of his reincarnations as the effect of his past deeds. In other words, what goes around comes around.
