    Good for the judge. I wonder if he still finds the whole thing as amusing now. Maybe his smarmy cat that swallowed the canary grin will disappear now. The little twerp needs to learn some hard lessons.

    Smuck

    This moron being sent to jail perfectly fits the definition of poetic justice: a result or occurrence that seems proper because someone who has done bad things to other people is being harmed or punished.
    Thank you Judge!

  • E Sverdrup

    He seems to be getting a little mental. I wonder if he would progress in evilness.

  • Joe Menn

    I can't imagine anyone expected Shrek's lawyer to say he was happy his client talked himself into jail, but it sure sounds like the lawyer was resigned to the fact that his client is an insufferable jackass.

  • SearingTruth

    Suck the life out of them.

    For profit.

    And if they don't have the money let them die.

    That's all Mr. Shkreli is saying fellow citizens.

    And it's the exact same thing "Health Insurance" companies say millions of times a day in America.

    So what's the problem now? One guy saying it versus corporations with billions of dollars to make it sound better?

    At SOME point, you'd think that Shkreli's lawyer wouldn't have to sit him down and explain that it's an amazingly stupid thing to put a bounty on body parts of individuals who are still under secret service protection.

    And yet, that's what Shkreli's lawyer had to do.

    "You did a stupid thing, Martin. I told you not to do stupid things, and you did a stupid thing."
    "But it wasn't stupid. It was just me being me!"
    "You're a putz, Martin."
    "Can you get me out?"
    "No, Martin, you're going to jail and there's nothing I can do. If you're not bright enough to not do stupid things, well, I suspect jail will teach you that doing stupid things has consequences."

    As long as Shkreli comes out without that smug smirk, I'll be satisfied.

    Karma. It's sweet when it finally comes.

  • Lulu Smyth

    While I cannot stand the guy, Shrekali is simply being made an example of in a ruse to show the public that the govt is "doing something" about such price gouging. I will believe it when they place the CEOs of all big Pharma in the same cell as him. Right now he is placed in a jail with out much wrong doing other than running his mouth.

    Well I'm sure this is not the last we'll hear of Shkreli...what was it Forest Gump use to say?

    Okay, just kidding. I never really said that :)

    Attorney Ben Brafman should not be disappointed in the judge, instead, he should be kicking himself for representing a narcissitic punk w/no ability to restrain his big ugly mouth ...
    Trump would probably love to have Shkreli as his son ...

  • SMRT

    Good.

    Also he has a stupid name.

  • MadBrother

    About time this bozo was punished. He's been pushing the limits for far too long. Also fine him $70 million. Pretty sure he didn't get it honestly.

  • Dicazi

    What does he want to do?

  • odinsleep

    the lawyer said what a lawyer is supposed to say.

    the fool would still be out if he could keep his stupid mouth shut, it is his own fault his bail was revoked.

    the public is disappointed we can not slap the fool every time he opens his mouth.

  • tet1953

    Enjoy prison, bro.

  • Harrison2253

    Americans are too lazy to do what they should do to maintain their health. They would rather take a pill to solve all their physical problems and the doctors and drug companies are more than willing to indulge them.

  • Franck Sasser

    Shkreli's ilk gets us socialized medicine within two years. So in effect he is indeed working for the public good.

  • Franck Sasser

    Most of the big Pharma boys make Shkreli look like a philanthropist.

  • Puddin' Twain

    Pharma Dude is obviously angling for a high-level position in the Trump administration.

  • Another commenter

    Ladies and Gentlemen, the next President of the United States of America!

  • MarkM

    Best news I've read in a long time. What a jerk.

  • wescraske

    The judge seems to have matters well in hand: safe to assume the message will be delivered!

  • Life's a River

    This is almost as good as when OJ got sent to jail for his incredibly stupid armed robbery of his own memorabilia.

  • StillThatSameGuy

    Good. I hope its permanent.

  • pfon71361

    True to form, Mr. Shkreli has a habit of putting his foot in his mouth. Flippancy, irreverence, and sarcasm as a way of life may serve his purposes but they leave everyone else decidedly unimpressed. An absurd bounty on a lock of Hillary Clinton's hair was something even his lawyers could not successfully explain away. His buffoonery has become a sad tragedy and his audience, what there was of it, has long since stopped laughing.

    So, the judge just cost the tax payers of NYC $40,000 to house, guard and care for this guy for 4 months because she got upset by his joke Facebook post?

  • unusual

    Glad to hear it. Couldn't have happened to a more deserving person. I'd like to think no one is beyond redemption but Shkreli is proving me wrong.

  • Sonora Nomad

    Good...Shkreli is the first of hundreds of Pharma dudes who need to spend a bigly amount of time in the Graybar Hotel.

  • CantStoptheSignalMal

    Now hopefully he wont just receive probation at his sentencing.

  • MauiOhana808

    Dude won't be so smug when he is "lame duck" in prison!!!!
    Aloha : )

  • RichardBroderickJr

    This guy's greed is just more obvious than most. The drug companies have been treating us this way for years and they do so entirely by our own laws which we don't bother correct.

    Change patent law.

  • Bucktooth

    It couldn't have happened to a more smug and deserving jerk.
