Martin Shkreli found guilty of securities fraud

Karma's a bitch, Shkreli baby!

https://www.cnbc.com/2017/08/04/phar...raud-case.html

He can get up to 20 years in prison.

Edit: Since it was pointed out that I may not have provided sufficient commentary, I will add that it is sickening that hiking up the price on life saving drugs is totally legal, and this piece of shit is going to jail for defrauding investors. Profit>people.

Re: Martin Shkreli found guilty of securities fraud

He is such a douche. I hope they give him the full 20 in Rikers with the general population. His corpse would be a sex-toy within a half hour.

Not the first. It was already on Colbert.

"Supercilious weasel" is epitomized by this rat-faced psychopath. Enjoy the bloody anal-widening courtesy of the big sausage on your cellmate.

There's far less rape in prison than you would like Norm.

I think that depends on the prison, and these assholes go to daycare.

Plus he'll be in a white collar country club prison, not some maximum security hellhole.

I would actually like there to be no rape in prison, Josh. This slimeball just makes me particularly livid. If he gets 20 years, sans rape, I'll be happy.

Yeah, a friend who went to prison said there was no rape, just "all the sex you would never want."

The transcript for the jury selection on the Shkreli trial proves karma is indeed a bitch: https://harpers.org/archive/2017/09/public-enemy/

These are my favorites:

Quote:
the court: Well, I’m going to excuse you. Juror Number 144, tell us what you have heard.

juror no. 144: I heard through the news of how the defendant changed the price of a pill by up-selling it. I heard he bought an album from the Wu-Tang Clan for a million dollars.

the court: The question is, have you heard anything that would affect your ability to decide this case with an open mind. Can you do that?

juror no. 144: I don’t think I can because he kind of looks like a dick.

Quote:
juror no. 59: Your Honor, totally he is guilty and in no way can I let him slide out of anything because —

the court: Okay. Is that your attitude toward anyone charged with a crime who has not been proven guilty?

juror no. 59: It’s my attitude toward his entire demeanor, what he has done to people.

the court: All right. We are going to excuse you, sir.

juror no. 59: And he disrespected the Wu-Tang Clan.

Re: Martin Shkreli found guilty of securities fraud

When I first read that article yesterday, I was sure it was political parody, not a real transcript. I still think we're going to find out we got punked and the whole thing was written by Jon Stewart!
