You can take colloidal silver until you're blue in the face, but it's really not going to do anything for you.

It must be coincidence that the AG went after a two-biatcharlatan hocking a snake oil that wasn't shilled for by the Charlatan-in-Chief.

That shirt is rather blue. And so is that groovy background.

Perhaps other colors might make his face appear... unblue.

First, he gets to refund the suckers money.
Next, he gets to pay settlements to the families of the suckers that believed it would "Totally eliminate it, kills it. Deactivates it", treated themselves, and died of Corona anyway.
Bet a shiatload of old people went out unprotected thinking they were now completely immune.

So, $156K and he admits no wrong-doing.   Pretty harsh on the poor fella.   I better send him some prayer request donations.

So let me get this straight, if you defraud people out of $90,000 you get a stern telling off and get told to pay it back plus a small fine, but if you steal 2 T-shirts worth $10 you get 20 years in jail....oh wait, one of those guys was old and white. I see now.

Bakker has spent eight years in prison already. Granted, it was supposed to be 45, but being a white Christian male has to mean something, right??

As far as I understand, silver even copper and gold have antimicrobial properties.  It's that human bodies can't process these minerals in a healthy way in proportion to what you would have to take in order for the antimicrobial benefits.  So you're basically poisoning yourself.

knowing nothing of the T Shirt Bandit; it is obvious that person does not have an extensive arrest record, there is no way they have walked a criminal path most of their life. no way. not possible. it was a straight 2 T shirt theft = 20 years in jail. PS: jail is local, county, short time. 20 years is prison.

Bakker's attorney, former Democratic Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon, had previously claimed that Bakker was being unfairly targeted "by those who want to crush his ministry and force his Christian television program off the air."

I think doing that is completely fair.

I knew a guy who sold colloidal silver back in the 90s.  Banner ads drove traffic to his site, orders were forwarded to the supplier, supplier drop-shipped to customers.  Once it was set up, all he had to do was sit around watching TV and smoking weed.  Check in once in a while to pay the supplier and deal with CC disputes.  Maybe tweak the ads.  So jealous.

Maybe if the defrauder wasn't already a convicted felon you might have a point. You wouldn't, but at least it would be a possibility.

You DO know Bakker is an ex-con, right? He should have been put through the system as repeat offender and thrown back in PRISON (see that? The way you like it) not treated like some first timer teen joyriding his parents' car.

So that's compared to someone who already spent 8 years in jail, down from a 45 year sentence for $3.4m of fraud (yes, we're talking about bakker) and without even looking I can tell you he has scammed more money from people has in 10 entire lifetimes.

My point is that it's an issue of scale - that t-shirt bandit could literally shoplift clothing every hour of every day for the rest of his natural life without opposition and it would still be less damage than what jim bakker has done. 
Why do you find it acceptable to jail petty thieves for decades yet fraudsters stealing thousands of times more get let off?

Need to put into legislation that a plea deal is an implicit admission of guilt to the underlying charges.
