(Gawker)   If you steal $200M from your war-profiteering company, don't draw attention to it with a $10M bat mitzvah party and a $100,000 belt buckle. Bonus: He asked a veterinarian if they had a "memory erasing pill" he could use against a government witness   (gawker.com) divider line 130

Well, the other defense contractors don't seem to run into problems, I wonder what he did differently....

FTFA: for his role in swindling $200 million from his company and its investors

I think I see the problem now.

Brooks also used DHB to purchase tickets to sporting events and concerts, and then made more than $300,000 scalping them.

What the fark.  He's making tens of millions legitimately, stealing tens of millions past that, and he STILL felt the need to scalp farking concert tickets?

What the fark.

Can't find the youtube clip, but this has already been invented on arrested development.

At what point does it go from my fault for inflating prices to your fault for paying them?  Doesn't somebody check?


Guys obviously a douche, and deserves prison, but if the military goes "how much for your sunglasses?" And I reply "a trillion bucks" and they accept, I doubt I'll argue. (Obviously not talking about the other charges and embezzlement)

According to the FBI, even after he was re-arrested and held in custody, he still smuggled prescription pills into court and doctored a fake email that his attorney used to cross examine a government witness. A vet who looked after Brooks' racehorses testified that Brooks repeatedly asked if he could provide a "http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GgwP8frXGm4" target="_blank">forget me now"?) to use on one of the government's witnesses.

There is another way to make government witnesses forget.  It involves a lead or copper suppository.

My mom worked for a computer company designing systems for Ford.  One time they had a government contractor come in to look at an estimate of some work.  They had all the costs laid out, in detail.  The guy looked at the list and said "Just round it to the nearest quarter million."

"Brooks also made millions off of falsely inflating the value of the bulletproof vests that he sold to the government, helping the company to meet profit projections."


But HEAVEN FOR FARKING BID that we should ask Uncle Stupid to pay for WIC programs or provide a decent level of Social Security to anyone, but that would be SOHSHULLIZZIM THAT WILL BANKRUPT THE COUNTRY!!!!

So, is he a regular prick who happens to be Jewish or an arch-Zionist prick? I need to know if he has dual citizenship or donated to Likud before I can figure out how angry I am.

When it comes  to swindling, it isn't the "what", the "where" or the "how much" that matters...

It's WHO YOU SWINDLE that counts.

Karma Chameleon: Much like banks, I just really can't muster the outrage for someone who steals from defense contractors.


Except that he was inflating prices on body armor that he sold to the government.  I'm wondering if we can get some more execs at that company thrown in jail for defrauding the government, I'm sure he wasn't the only person who knew about it.

/Just kidding, we all know that defrauding civilians of the government gets you nothing more than a slap on the wrist, this guys problem was stealing from rich people, lol.

Didn't he get some in his Evil Villain starter kit?  The contractor for the kits probably stole them and replaced them with Tic-Tacs.

"In spite of indications of the potentially unsafe and defective nature of its body armor, the company falsely represented the quality and safety of its body armor products,"

So not only did he rip off everybody under the sun, the lousy **** also put people's lives at risk by cutting corners on the product. I wonder if Hollywood will make a movie about him. Seems like a natural story line for a a film. Maybe Ben Stiller could play him.

Ah, DHB Industries. One of those companies favored with "no bid, cost plus" contracts in 2003. Picked out by Rumsfeld himself. Later found to have bribed Aberdeen testing ground officers to falsify data in their favor, data which kept the superior Tiger armor away from the troops, unless the soldiers bought their own. But since those officers were all West Point grads, they never went to jail--they were allowed to "resign" so they could keep their pensions.

Later, when DHB were informed that they were shipping body armor with defective materials in them, they kept supplying them anyway. But that turned out okay, they just bribed their way out of that one. Link Pity about the US soldiers killed and maimed, though.

This cocksucker doesn't belong in jail. He needs to be strung up by the balls with barbed wire and left to rot in a public square.
