He offered to put the drug back down to $13.50 a pill for a reduced sentence but the judge told him hes going to need it himself by the time he gets out!

I watched this prick laugh at Congress and take the 5th. Its a pleasure to see he has got 7 years. Hope he gets screwed big style inside. Just like he screwed the people who needed his drug. Nice to hear he cried like a baby when sentenced. Kama is a bitch.😀

bob (11 days ago)
very interesting. Thanks. I;ll look into it but I've never heard of that story before. Any additional info that would help me find out the details would be appreciated. Cramer is scum. Shkreli could be his son.
Jpm King (12 days ago)
I forgot the name. i think it was a small to medium sized town with one large industry making up most of their local economy. he gave the them bad advance and almost left the entire place penniless. i know i cant remember the name of the city but I remember looking at it on the map and it was out west in one of the upper states.

Ciaran (13 days ago)
He made more money for those people than he took, there are bigger cunts stealing much more this was because of his hatred by the ignorant populace caused by the msm. He gave his medicine away to the poor, and funded amazingly rare medicine with low demand for people who were dying without anything.

KRAZO G yeah he sold a Ferrari for the price of a Ford... to dying people. When before his involvement they were paying the price of a push bike. WHAT A FUCKING HERO!! Hope he doesn't get raped too hard. That tape is worth more than stormy Daniel's, the pee tape and that 2 million dollar wu tan album combined.
KRAZO G (13 days ago)
BillW17 Hes a also A Crook.
BillW17 (13 days ago)
KRAZO G This isnt karma since he was punished for doing something good.
Ciaran (13 days ago)
He saved hundreds of lives that no one cared about because the demand for making rare medicine was too low, from this he hardly profited, and he simply gave away the 5000% medicine for nothing to the poor.
KRAZO G (13 days ago)
BillW17 Really??

sfamerken12 Also Martin wasnt being an asshole about it. Have you heard of the economies of scale?? Probably not so ill give a brief definition: The more you produce the cheaper it becomes. Thats what he was doing. Also he never fucked over any sick person. The 5000% price hike was so insurance companies couldnt profit. Read more than just the headlines you ignorant cuck.
BillW17 (12 days ago)
sfamerken12 Actually Bill Gates was an asshole, when Paul Allen the other co-founder of microsoft got cancer Bill Gates tried to take all his shares of microsoft by protraying Paul as weak and useless to the BoD. He only started philanthropy because of public backlash and potential boycotting of microsoft. No businessman ever made wealth frombeing nice.
sfamerken12 (12 days ago)
BilW17 so what? everyone should just roll over, let the assholes fuck us in the ass and then say: thank you, more please; just like you would want then? CEO's are expected to make tough decisions, businessmen are in it to make money; that doesn't mean you have to be an asshole about it. Is Bill Gates an asshole? Not that I'm aware off, if he didn't donate as much as he does to charities, he's be the wealthiest man on the planet. Set a higher price initially to make back the costs of the research, fine by me. But just bumping the price, "because you think you will get away with it", I'll call you what you are: an asshole. Do I expect him to become poor? No. I expect humanity to properly police itself, something clearly not a thing in the US. Jacking the price of a drug by over 5000% is just an asshole move. I would like a message sent to people like that, do this and your punishment will be utter destitution. And just because you say i'm the ignorant dumbass: the correct words are things, you're and pinnacle.

Only 7 years and he will have his fortune back. Great trade off.
Mike Jordan (10 days ago)
Ciaran That is the stupidest pro-Martin thing I have ever seen written. He didn't INVENT Daraprim, he just bought the rights to manufacture and price it. Who was having trouble getting getting Daraprim before he came along? No one. If you needed it, you got it and pretty cheap, too. So whose life did he save hiking it up 5000% ?
Ciaran (13 days ago)
Mike Jordan I think the amount of lives he's saved sort of makes him even.
Mike Jordan (13 days ago)
Noplay I don't see how. With this felony fraud conviction, he can never be a licensed broker or hedge fund manager again. He can forget getting a 6-figure job in any company that values its reputation. But there is a future in pharmaceuticals. CVS always needs cashiers.

Ciaran (13 days ago)
203 cappadon he played it for everyone on a stream and it was Wu who was pissed off and threatened to due for playing it. Also he saved lives and have his medicine away for nothing to the poor.

Do more than reading headlines
Do Bo (13 days ago)
you dont even know what you are talking about. I cant stand Martin but raising the price didnt screw any patients over. read into it before you talk about it
BillW17 (13 days ago)
Awesomely Sarcastic The 5000% rise was justified. Do you know how much money it takes to develop a drug and get it approved? You probably dont so ill just tell you, it takes 2.3B. Where do you think the money comes from?? Thin fucking air? Nope it comes from the rise of drug prices. You also might ask cant the company borrow some money from the bank? Highly not. Most banks wont give money to the development of medication because there is a lot of risk and uncertainty. *THE PRICE HIKE WAD JUSTIFIED*.
BillW17 (13 days ago)
