The only difference between Shkreli and almost every other CEO is he didn't try to hide his dirty tricks. The guy was literally too honest to be a grifter. While I believe he deserves every ounce of punishment he's getting I'll never understand why he's being held to a higher standard than the CEO of Monsanto, the president of the United States, or even Catholic priests for that matter.
And still, he is going to jail for committing fraud against wealthy investors, not for being a d-bag who overnight increased the price of a life-saving drug over 50 times its previous price.
So he is going to jail because he defrauded rich folks (investors) and not the sick and needy people.
I would be even happier if he were held responsible for price gouging on older generic drugs acquired from others. TO me, it seems that gouging patients, and by extension insurance providers, the government, and finally and least of all... PATIENTS, would be more important, or as important, as cheating investors.
Good. This is step one. As a friend of mine, a MUCH nicer person than I am, says, maybe now he will get the treatment he so urgently needs.
a jail sentence lost him that shit eatin' grin. I hope Bubba (from the hills) and Raheem (from the hood) make him their bitch in prison.
I hope they lock him up and throw away the key ,I don't care about the rich ones he's defrauded ,I care about the normal Mr and Mrs average that he's harmed ,by making life saving drugs impossible to our purchase ,how many people died because of his greed ? Robbing people of life is murder .
It is ironically fitting that a parasite of a CEO is sent to jail by his own stupidity and arrogance. It would be even more comical if he were to continually receive a mass of random hair samples mailed to him everyday he's in jail.
Somebody is gonna be making the "Ohhh face" from the back!!!!! I hope they don't have lube where he's going!!! #fuckbigpharma #skreliisacunt #mayyourassholerestinpeace
Pay attention, he is only going to jail for screwing over rich people. If he was going to jail for what he really should be, then those rich people would also be at risk of going to jail. They want us to think, "got him!", when this is basically a token win.
