Pharma bro Martin Shkreli to miss 2024 Paris Olympics

Bernard M. Orwell Silver badge

No, it hasn't, and nor will it most likely.

Shkreli wasn't arrested for putting thousands of aids patients at risk of death, that's not a crime in the US. Instead, he made the error of taking money from rich people and using it like they would, and therein lies the crime he was charged with.

Inflate a drug price to a level where only the rich can afford it? No crime.

Steal money from rich people? Down you go.

America. Fuck you.
