Bunkle to seek diversion

Former Alliance Cabinet Minister Phillida Bunkle is expected to seek diversion in relation to her shoplifting charges.

Seems reasonable. It was only $22, but you do wonder what the hell was she doing.  Unless one is pathologically a thief, or you are so poor that $20 is more than you can afford, why would you shoplift?  And in fact she had $200 in cash on her it seems.  Maybe there was a grudge against the store owner?  It just seems so bizarre.
