Karma, right? 

Bloomberg is reporting that Martin Shkreli, the guy who bought the rights to an anti-HIV medication only to raise the price from $13.50 to $750, was arrested by federal agents early Thursday morning at his midtown Manhattan apartment for securities fraud. You knew they were going to dig into his past until they found something. 

This current securities fraud charge is linked to a biotech firm he started in 2011 called Retrophin Inc. Bloomberg's report goes on to say the 32-year-old (who this past weekend is the owner of the only copy of the Wu-Tang Clan's latest album "Once Upon a Time in Shaolin") is accused of illegally using stock and cash from Retrophin, Inc. to pay off debts from “unrelated business dealings.”

I hope he is tried fairly and sentenced accordingly. The love of money is indeed the root of much evil- he should serve some time and be forced to do community work with those who need financial help- teach him a bit of kindness and empathy. It would be nice to see such an utter wankstain learn a lesson about basic human decency. At 32 he could come out and instead of shafting the vulnerable, make a difference for good in the world. I am not, however, holding my breath.

Yeah, he will probably get away with it. Too much money.

and even if he got time he wouldn't learn a damn thing. Sadly no one would try either and that says a lot.

I wonder how many of our outraged politicians have Turing Pharmaceuticals AG stock in their portfolios.

It will, if it comes to porridge, likely be a for-profit prison. So at least he can still be true to his beliefs.

I don't even feel bad about how I happy I am that this happened. It seems they busted his lawyer too. That's just the bitters in my gin.

The man is a sociopath. He probably thinks he's the victim... Or he's so far gone that he thinks he'll come out of this a hero somehow.

Couldn't have happened to a nicer guy. Anyone feel like crowd-sourcing his bail?
