Dude looks rail thin. It's a little off.

Second:

"Shkreli also posted a photo to his Facebook page, showing himself in the backseat of the car, writing: 'Getting out of real prison is easier than getting out of Twitter prison.'"

Farker learned absolutely nothing.

What did you expect?  That he would come out of his prison experience a changed man, determined to help those less fortunate and practice true humility?

That only happens in sermons.

Bad sermons.

No, of course not.

But I had hoped he would have had the sense to be something of a quieter, more circumspect douchenozzle for a month or two.

They really should have increased his prison term by 500% just as he was approaching parole.

Yeah, hope springs eternal.  This guy was never going to be that, though.  He's made a lifestyle of being the most unabashedly obnoxious asshole on the planet.  And it's been very lucrative for him, too.

As soon as he's legally allowed, I bet he gets out of the country and sets himself up somewhere without an extradition treaty, with all the cash he was able to offshore before the trial.

Wonder if that reporter who divorced her husband because she was in love with Shkreli is still waiting for him?
 
2022-05-18 3:55:03 PM  
Does he have to fill in his parole officer on the details of his master plan to steal back the one of a kind Wu Tang album?
 
2022-05-18 4:17:36 PM  
Hmm in that time he's gone from being quite possibly America's most punchable face to being kind of far down that list - McConnell and tRump and Graham and Stone and Giuliani and Spencer all taking the lead while he was out of play.

Nope. He needs to grift. He's a talentless unproductive ass with no morals. There's a big market for that in the give-me-your-money game. Half of this country loves him because he pisses off the other half.

LOL why not? They probably figured it was a mistake that a wealthy white person somehow ended up there.

Now lets check on the black men doing a 10 year bid for stealing a 12 pack.

I spent 3 weeks in jail. One time. 30 years ago.  So. It . Can. Happen.  But you have stop being that person.
Most people depend on their sense of who they are.

And if anything, the "market" for that kind of person has gotten way, WAY better since he went to prison. I don't know what kind of media access he had in jail -- since he was in cushy fed prison I suspect pretty good -- but if he paid any attention to the ascendency of people like Elon Musk over the last few years, the lesson is clear: Dial that shiat up to 11.

I GUARANTEE he'd going to quadruple the number of fanboys, clinger-ons, and worshippers he has simply by being an even bigger tool than he was before.

And he won't be persona non grata in the business world provided he's making people money.

All this asshole really got was a few years off from work. He's going to be worse than ever. I'd stake money on it.
 
2022-05-18 4:21:19 PM  
That was 5 years ago?

Pandemic time makes it feel a lot longer ago than that.

He'd have to lost something.  Did he? Maybe not. Apparently.

I say he was framed! Now who's with me?!?!

There are similarities, and the Venn diagrams between their respective fans have a ton of overlap. Granted, the Musk circle is a lot bigger. But it almost completely engulfs the Shkreli circle.

I still think most of the trouble he got in was for exposing what was already going on and calling too much attention to it. The stuff that pissed off the public (massive price increases) wasn't what he went to jail for, but more for cooked up stuff that would have been ignored if not for wanting to pin something on him.

Just in time to take over as CEO for Abbot and give baby formula a 5000x price hike!
It's time to see just what the baby formula market will bear. Capitalism Fark-Ya!

Dude is loathsome but releasing people from prison early is Good, Actually, and there should be more of it.

I very briefly gave Graham forgiveness when he reversed himself after hearing encryption testimony. He lost that pretty quickly.
 
2022-05-18 4:34:12 PM  
He'll probably run for senate. And win. And make a few billion on insider trading. And push legislation for big pharma that puts more billions in his pocket. And openly make a deal with Putin.

Murica.
 
2022-05-18 4:34:39 PM  
There's annoy the guards annoying, then there's the Guard Union statement 'Shkreli is so annoying they're all going to quit and we don't have anyone on the replacement roster,' annoying.

/he won't get laid on the outside either

Oh, I have a feeling this King of Assholes will make up for his absence in the near future...
 
2022-05-18 4:37:12 PM  
The fact that he didn't die from Covid proves there is no God.
 
2022-05-18 4:39:26 PM  
Thank god. Now, he can truly be free to do what he was clearly born to do:

Stand non-chalantly next to a sign that says "Punch this man for 1 Bitcoin"
 
2022-05-18 4:39:29 PM  
He official release date is scheduled for October 2023 after being convicted of two counts of securities fraud and a single count of conspiracy.

So when's Musk going in?
 
2022-05-18 4:40:01 PM  
May the treatment for whatever medical issues he develops be $20,000,000 per pill and not covered by insurance.
 
2022-05-18 4:40:25 PM  
I can't believe they cut his sentence short after he flooded Gotham and encouraged all those shootings. I guess it really is true what they say. You want early release, get caught by Batman. Nobody caught by Batman ever serves their full time.
 
2022-05-18 4:44:21 PM  
Why hasn't anyone punched him in his face yet?
He's been free for hours now...

Flee the country?

When he's clearly Presidential material?

At a time when Presidents can do absolutely anything, including physically attacking Congress with a militia of frothing idiots, and still be highly electable?

Or the fact that he didn't die proves that he was in a federal prison and federal prisons are equipped to isolate people.

It's the great Cycle of American Ethics.

Being an amoral thieving slimebag makes you rich.

Being rich makes you immune to any consequences that your actions might otherwise have (and often makes you widely admired for your actions).

Even the dumbest of assclowns can shrug off the most serious offenses if daddy gave them some dough.  Hop over to the politics tab if you need some examples.

I really wish he had a taste of his own medicine. In the form of a couple jabs from Epipens. Yes, I am aware what this will do.
