This guy just ain't right.
He has some form of mental defect.
Not necessarily 'crazy' - but definitely a mental condition.
Sounds like he is headed to prison.

Martin Shkreli is heading to jail.
A federal judge Wednesday revoked the former pharmaceutical exec’s bail after he offered $5,000 to anyone who could grab a strand of Hillary Clinton’s hair.
Judge Kiyo Matsumoto said Shkreli, who was convicted of fraud in August and is awaiting sentencing, has “demonstrated that he has posed a real danger.”
In a Facebook post last week, Shkreli promoted a conspiracy about the Clinton Foundation and said he would pay any person who could procure a lock of hair from the former presidential candidate.
Prosecutors said the post reflected “an escalating pattern of threats and harassment,” adding that it had triggered an investigation by the Secret Service that required “a significant expenditure of resources.”
In a hearing in Brooklyn federal court, Judge Matsumoto said she was particularly concerned that he had “doubled down” on his challenge for someone to grab the Clinton’s hair. Shkreli said he required a hair with a follicle while urging his social media followers not to hurt anyone.
Until Wednesday, Shkreli remained free on $5 million bail. His sentencing is set for January 16.
Shkreli, 34, has called the post “satire.”
He ultimately asked Judge Matsumoto not to penalize him for “poor judgment” in a letter filed Tuesday.
“I understand now, that some may have read my comments about Mrs. Clinton as threatening, when that was never my intention when making those comments,” Shkreli wrote in the letter. “I used poor judgment but never intended to cause alarm or promote any act of violence whatsoever.”

His defense lawyer, Benjamin Brafman, initially argued that Shkreli has a nonviolent background and was convicted on a nonviolent crime. He conceded that the comment was “stupid.”
“Stupid doesn’t make you violent. Sometimes stupid is just plain stupid,” he said.
He asked the judge to ban his client from social media instead of sending him to jail.
Shkreli was convicted in August of two counts of fraud and one count of conspiracy for misleading investors in his hedge funds.
The most serious count carries a maximum prison term of 20 years.
Shkreli first gained notoriety in 2015 when he raised the price of a pill used by AIDS patients from $13.50 to $750 while he was CEO of Turing Pharmaceuticals. His bombastic personality and prolific use of social media has kept him in the spotlight since then.
Even after his conviction, he continued livestreaming on YouTube from his apartment, predicting that his sentence would be “close to nil.”

Maybe he was developing/using his own products in ways not intended?

Um. Every crime is born of poor judgement.....and selfishness. Two characteristics that define Shkreli.

Now, Marty, what was that you were saying about how you wouldn't go to prison?
And you cried at your sentencing? Really, Mister Smirking Shit Millionaire? I thought everything was just a big fucking joke to you, son. Guess not, huh? When it comes down to it, you're a pussy.

remember last summer when they released juror comments from his trial ?
Juror No. 1: “I’m aware of the defendant and I hate him. I think he’s a greedy little man.”
Juror No. 47: “He’s the most hated man in America. In my opinion, he equates with Bernie Madoff.”
Juror No. 70: “I have total disdain for the man. I can be fair to one side but not the other.”
Juror No. 77: “I believe the defendant is the face of corporate greed in America. You’d have to convince me he was innocent rather than guilty.”
Juror No. 155: “I have read a lot of articles about the case. I think he is as guilty as they come.”
Juror No. 10: “The only thing I’d be impartial about is what prison this guy goes to.”
Juror No. 41: “I was looking yesterday in the newspaper and I saw the defendant. There was something about him. I can’t be fair. There was something that didn’t look right.”
At certain moments Shkreli’s lawyer Benjamin Brafman had to get involved, as during this exchange.
Juror No. 52: “When I walked in here today I looked at him, and in my head, that’s a snake—not knowing who he was. I just walked in and looked right at him and that’s a snake.”
Brafman: “So much for the presumption of innocence.”
Other noteworthy comments came courtesy of Judge Kiyo Matsumoto (who is identified as “the court” in the transcripts).
The Court: “The question is, have you heard anything that would affect your ability to decide this case with an open mind. Can you do that?”
Juror No. 144: “I don’t think I can because he kind of looks like a dick.”
One wannabe juror (whose testimony fittingly ends the Harper’s article) got the last laugh after being cross examined by Matsumoto.
Juror No. 59: “Your Honor, totally he is guilty and in no way can I let him slide out of anything because—”
The Court: “OK. Is that your attitude toward anyone charged with a crime who has not been proven guilty?”
Juror No. 59: “It’s my attitude toward his entire demeanor, what he has done to people.”
The Court: “All right. We are going to excuse you, sir.”
Juror No. 59: “And he disrespected the Wu-Tang Clan.”
You gots ta answer for dat, dawg.
prison will not be kind to a guy like that

"We may consent to be governed, but we will not be ruled." - Kevin D. Williamson, 2012
"All the citizens of this land are of right freemen; they owe no allegiance to any class and should recognize no task-masters. Under the chart of their liberties, under the law of high heaven, they are free and without shackles on their limbs nor mortgages upon the fruits of their brain or muscles; they bow down before no prince, potentate, or sovereign, nor kiss the royal robes of any crowned head; they render homage only to their God and should pay tribute only to their Government. Such at least is the spirit of our institutions, the character of our written national compact."

Smacked the smirk right off his face. If he cried for the judge - is it too much to hope he gets to toss some salad in the next 6 years?
