    Glad this young pup bowed to public pressure, but we'll see what price the drug re-enters the market at before we start high-fiving him.

    People who wreck companies for profit have a lot of enemies.

    This pasty, young money hound would make more enemies than
    he could ever imagine.
    Maybe he is less morally deficient or maybe he just freaked out upon
    realizing how ugly or short his life could become.

    With any luck this will be a slap across the face for anyone trying to
    rationalize sticking it to sick people.

    I think there were about 10 or fewer people in the US taking this drug. He probably did this with other such drugs...figured no one would notice. Or care.

    Not sure laws will work as well as public shaming. This guy seems like a real douche. I have never used that word, but he seems like the definition of douchebag.

    "You only need less than 100 pills so at the end of the day, the price for treatment – to save your life – was only $1,000," Shkreli told Bloomberg TV on Sept. 21, 2015.
    I guess this means that you ought to be more than willing to pay a lot more than $1,000 to save your life. Especially since so many other life-saving drugs cost ever so much more.

    Toerag could be another term for this guy.

    Sorry to offend. I've been watching episodes of "New Tricks." I picked it up there.
