Martin Shkreli, the sociopathic butthole that was trying to convince us all it was a human being, was arrested today. From the New York Times:
In 2011, while running the hedge fund MSMB Capital Management, Mr. Shkreli started Retrophin, which adopted a controversial business strategy that has come under scrutiny. It acquired old, neglected drugs often used for rare diseases and substantially raised their prices. Retrophin, for example, raised the price of Thiola, used to treat a disease that causes kidney stones, to $30 a pill from $1.50. In 2012, he took Retrophin public through a merger with a publicly traded shell company.
You might remember this waste of protoplasm as the same dicknose who took the price of Daraprim, a decades-old drug used in the treatment of AIDS, from $13.50 to $750 per pill, because he is a monster who lacks empathy and deserves to be hit in the face with a comically oversized dildo on national television during prime time where we can all best enjoy it. However, FCC regulations probably make that impossible, so I guess this bit of karmic retribution will have to do instead.
