Shkreli is a horrible human being who deserves jail time. He epitomizes white privelege.

The dude has very twisted morals and displaced values, but to imply he is the way he is because he is White is just plain dumb.

Maybe not but the little stinker does have privelege, whether it's because he's white is debatable.

Yesterday, you implied "browns" are the way they are because they're brown.

No Xbox for 'Pharma Bro' Martin Shkreli as he's locked up with terror, mob suspects

NEW YORK — Inmate No. 87850-053 has no internet.
That could be the least of the inconveniences ahead for “Pharma Bro” Martin Shkreli, whose online rantings about Hillary Clinton prompted a judge this week to revoke his bail and put him in the Metropolitan Detention Center, a fortress-like federal jail that also houses terrorism and mob suspects.
MDC, as the Brooklyn lockup for 1,800 men and women is known, has over the years drawn complaints ranging from sexual assaults to the lack of fresh air, sunlight and recreation.
Federal prison officials wouldn’t discuss Shkreli’s conditions, though his lawyer says his client is in with the general population. All defence attorney Ben Brafman would say of Shkreli’s two nights locked up so far is that he “is doing reasonably well under very difficult circumstances.”
Shkreli, a boyish pharma executive best known for jacking up the price of a life-saving drug, had been allowed to remain free on US$5 million bail following his conviction last month in an unrelated securities fraud scheme involving two hedge funds he ran.
But Shkreli’s creepy Facebook posting offering a $5,000 bounty for a strand of Clinton’s hair was the last straw for U.S. District Judge Kiyo Matsumoto, who agreed with prosecutors that he should be put behind bars until his sentencing for securities fraud early next year.
He is facing up to 20 years in prison on the most serious charges. But he had brashly predicted in live-streamed rants that he would never see the inside of a prison because of sentencing guidelines — and that even if he did get prison time, it would be just a few months at a minimum-security “Club Fed.”
“I’ll play basketball and tennis and Xbox and be out on these streets in four months,” he boasted to the New York Daily News just minutes after his conviction.
That’s hardly what Shkreli will be experiencing at MDC, where he will remain for at least four months until his Jan. 16 sentencing.
The 34-year-old Shkreli is under the same roof as defendants accused of plotting to join the Islamic State group or commit attacks on its behalf. Others include organized crime family captain Vincent Asaro and Edgar Veytia, a former Mexican state attorney general charged with drug smuggling.
While far less notorious than city-run Rikers Island, the Brooklyn facility has a checkered history. After the Sept. 11 attacks, dozens of mostly Arab or Muslim men “of high interest” were detained at MDC, where many claimed guards regularly slammed them against walls until officials began videotaping them as a safeguard.
More recently, prosecutors have alleged that MDC was the scene of sexual assaults by guards on female inmates. A federal magistrate last year expressed reluctance to remand a woman there, citing a report saying there was an “absence of fresh, clean air, the complete absence of sunlight, and the absence of ANY outdoor time and activities.”
In a court filing, lawyers for Jacob “Kobi” Alexander, the convicted ex-CEO of Converse Technology, complained about a lack of recreation time, saying he “spends large parts of his day walking in circles in his unit when he is permitted to do so.”
When the technology website Gizmodo recently pressed Shkreli on a then-hypothetical question of what he would read if locked up, he played along.
“I don’t read much fiction,” he said, “but I would probably bone up on philosophy.”

Instead of being a whiny bitch when confronted with facts, try doing some of your own investigating. Yes, Big Pharma has been overcharging for decades but Obama gave Big Pharma free-reign in pricing. Why do you think there were sudden drastic increases in the price of prescription drugs in the US after the ACA went through.

But is it really fraud when your investors are paid back and then some? I mean voluntarily, not under a court order.

You haven't been following the case-the money that paid them back came from ongoing fraudulent actions perpetrated by the convicted.

NEW YORK — Pharmaceutical honcho Martin Shkreli has been banished to solitary confinement amid allegations he was running his drug company from federal prison using a contraband smartphone, a person familiar with the matter told The Associated Press.
Shkreli was moved to solitary confinement at the Fort Dix, New Jersey, facility on March 7 and is likely to remain there while his alleged conduct is being investigated, the person said. The person wasn’t authorized to discuss the matter publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity.
The U.S. Bureau of Prisons told the AP on March 8 that it was investigating whether Shkreli, known as the “Pharma Bro,” violated prison rules forbidding inmates from conducting business and possessing cellphones.
That inquiry hasn’t resulted in any charges within the agency’s inmate discipline program, the person said, indicating that the matter may have been referred to federal prosecutors for potential criminal prosecution.
Shkreli’s lawyer, Benjamin Brafman, declined to comment.

The Bureau of Prisons said it does not release information on an individual inmate’s conditions of confinement.
“The matter you reference is under investigation,” the agency said in a statement. “When there are allegations of misconduct, they are thoroughly investigated and appropriate action is taken if allegations are sustained.”
The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Brooklyn, which prosecuted Shkreli’s securities fraud case, declined to comment. The U.S. Attorney’s Office in New Jersey also declined to comment.
Shkreli’s move to solitary confinement was first reported by Forbes .
Shkreli, 36, is serving a seven-year sentence at a low-security prison complex about 40 miles (65 kilometres) from Philadelphia. He was convicted in August 2017 of lying to investors in two failed hedge funds and cheating them out of millions.
The Wall Street Journal reported last month that Shkreli has used a cellphone to call the shots at his drug company, Phoenixus AG, posting regularly to social media and even firing the company’s chief executive.
The punishment for inmates caught with cellphones depends on how the case is handled.
If it’s prosecuted in court, a conviction could tack on up to an extra year of prison time. Within the inmate discipline program, having a cellphone is considered a “greatest severity level” offence and carries sanctions ranging from loss to privileges to up to a year in solitary confinement.
In Shkreli’s case, he could face more punishment if he’s also found to have conducted business while locked up.
Other than the alleged cellphone flap, Shkreli has been pretty well behaved. His only other violations were for refusing an order and being absent from an assignment in May 2018, inmate disciplinary records show.
Shkreli’s securities fraud case stemmed from his role managing MSMB Capital Management and MSMB Healthcare between 2009 and 2014. It was unrelated to the 2015 furor he caused when he raised the price by more than 5,000% of a drug used to treat an infection that occurs in some AIDS, malaria and cancer patients.

NEW YORK — Imprisoned pharmaceutical entrepreneur Martin Shkreli sued three executives at a company he started Friday, saying they illegally ousted him and defrauded the company of millions of dollars.
The lawsuit was filed Friday in Manhattan federal court. It seeks unspecified damages.
Shkreli, 36, was dubbed the Pharma Bro and is perhaps best known for boosting the price of a life-saving drug by more than 5,000% and trolling his critics on social media while he worked at Retrophin.
He was convicted in August 2017 of fraud related to his handling of hedge fund investments and Retrophin stock but brashly predicted he’d never go to prison. Shkreli is serving a seven-year prison sentence.
Recently, he’s spent time in solitary confinement while the U.S. Bureau of Prisons investigated whether he violated rules forbidding inmates from conducting business and possessing cellphones.

In his lawsuit, Shkreli alleged that he was “unceremoniously and illegally ousted” from the company he started by executives who were “driven by their egos, jealousy and greed.”
The lawsuit said Shkreli was fraudulently induced to negotiate the terms of departure from the company before he was tricked into signing a fraudulent document, resigning voluntarily from the company and giving up his rights as the chief executive and founder.
He alleged through the lawsuit that those who ousted him paid themselves over $35 million.
The company declined through a spokesman to comment.
