Martin Shkreli ordered to give up $7.4 million, including his one-of-a-kind Wu Tang Clan album

While viscerally I want to scream" hell yeah" that logic can be turned around on us regular folk and would.
Right now it’s in the form of civil asset forfiture


My understanding is that $7.4 million was related to his criminal charges. We’ll see what if anything he has left after the inevitable civil suits from the investors he defrauded are resolved.


I was worried! :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Pretty good deal for Shkreli to get to surrender the Wu Tang Clan album as part of the settlement. He bought it mostly out of spite and I doubt he could have gotten his money back out of it, but hey, I’ll contribute that at my basis against my fine? That works.

But if you’re not supposed to button them, why are they there?


Wait, so the judge can impose the fine, obviously, but can the judge specify which assets he must use to pay it? I am confuse.

That juror who was rejected for stating that he couldn’t be objective because Shkreli “disrespected the Wu-Tang Clan” must be smiling today.


But didn’t he sell it in September?

My wife told me not to button. She was in tech, maybe that’s why(?)

Just a reminder:

  1. He wasn’t jailed over any of the truly evil things that he did. Those are all still legal, and still Senator Manchin’s daughter’s primary source of income (along with many, many others).

  2. No one would have investigated him for anything (and certainly wouldn’t have tried him) if he hadn’t committed the unpardonable crime of telling the truth about how he made his money.

But something, something, Wu-Tang, let’s all pat ourselves on the back.


Nobody wants this cracker parasite in the hood, and besides, plenty of deserving people need those spots. Better to let this asshole stay on Park Ave where he belongs, with just enough money leftover after to rent to feed himself on ramen


I came here to complain about the same thing. Drives me nuts to see some douchebag with his bottom button buttoned. Especially this douchebag.

The latest chapter in this saga just reminds me that this theory from 2015 is still plausible:


Punk ass bitch.

Couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy.

I thought the same but it looks like the actual sale never happened.


Nope, which is also why he did not protect his neck, because cash ruled everything around him. Now we finally get to bring the mother fucking ruckus.


Fake pockets always annoyed me also.


Accident of fashion history. After it became popular not to button one button, copying a royal figure I believe, the new jackets were designed to only fit right if you skip that button. They are now cut to look awkward on most men if it’s buttoned.

Ladies jackets are more often cut so you can button them all, as are riding jackets.

I would much prefer them to just leave off the extra button, I hate extraneous buttons like that, and fake pockets. Although, I don’t mind random zips or purely decorative buttons, at least not on goth clothes. As long as the zippers aren’t where I’d want my pockets. I like busy looking goth stuff.
