Martin Shkreli Update: It was exactly one year ago, this morning, he was perp-walked… “He. Just. Can’t. Help. Himself.”

shkreli-12-16-16-tweetTake a look (at the posts, on another property of mine). If you’ve ever played organized competitive sports, you understand the idea (the coach’s idea, really) of using what the other guy/other team is saying — as strong motivation.

Trash talking. Talkin’ junk. That’s what this is.

Me? I’d personally bet that the able AUSAs in Brooklyn have a small (but now-crowded) cork-board — in one of their offices/ conference rooms — and it has paper copies of tweets like this one plastered all over it.

There is no shortage of them, in truth — stretching back over a year, today. But Mr. Brafman had warned Mr. Shkreli, in front of the press, last summer — to knock this nonsense off. But that one was tweeted last night. I suspect the one-year anniversary of the perp-walk has him addled.

shkreli-one-year-on-201Stupid. Now it ALL serves as a “motivation folder” — for the AUSAs.

And, perhaps more importantly, when it comes time for his eventual sentencing hearings, tweets like these will be offered by the AUSAs, to the judge — as evidence that Mr. Shkreli regards the federal criminal statutes as some sort of video game. Just a minor maze to beat — to run through — in the allotted time.

Such outbursts are likely to lengthen his eventual sentence. Not very smart.

Now you know.
