Sports betting caused the reduction of armed robbery rate – J. Derobie.
Young Ghanaian dancehall sensation, J. Derobie has come out to endorse sports betting, stating it only has positive effects on society. He blatantly disclosed his full support for sport betting in a radio interview with Prince Benjamin on Class FM, singing the praises of how it has helped the youth.
Backing his claims of saying sports betting is very good, J. Derobie explained that but for sports betting, many of our youth would have been out on the streets stealing or engaging themselves in armed robbery activities. But sports betting he says, has reduced this crime rate by helping the youth to find an easy way of making money, thereby drawing them away from those vices.
This is what is said in the interview:
“Betting is good, betting is good. It has helped most of the youth, it has pushed some of them from stealing and all that”, adding: “You know, if it weren’t for betting, some [young] people would be on the streets stealing and robbing”.
