The media saw an opportunity to skew the light on Martin Shkreli negatively so they could make a couple bucks off a headline.. he was trying to do a great thing, and all you people bought it from the media.. wish more people would research before coming to conclusions. smh Media can be one of the worst cold-blooded emotionless evils to ever rise

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.😀

isnt he Jim Cramars protege, and isnt Jim Cramar the guy who robbed an entire town in the USA, and if he ever goes back there they will literally kill him
Alex Jones (10 months 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 (10 months 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.

What town is that?

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.
Bill (10 months ago)
sfamerken12 Do you expect him to become poor?
Bill (10 months ago)
sfamerken12 You realise all the "assholes" are CEOs and businessmen who create thing you use on a daily basis? They also fund medication that you use when your sick. You are the pinicle of ignorant and a dumbass.
sfamerken12 (10 months ago)
Michael Choi, that is incorrect. They had to meet certain criteria, but those criteria where not given. He funds research to new medicine that he can sell at exorbitant prices to get rich on the backs of the sick, so fuck you. But this trial wasn't about that, this was about him trying to fuck over wealthy people. He should have gotten life imprisonment and all his wealth and assets given to the poor and needy. As a warning to all assholes in the world.

Only 7 years and he will have his fortune back. Great trade off.

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% ?
Mike Jordan (10 months 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.

Awesomely Sarcastic well said. I'm so sick of wankstains hiding behind the details when the facts are clear to see.

Do Bo (10 months 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
Bill (10 months 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*.
