'Pharma Bro' wants out of prison to research coronavirus

Source: AP

NEW YORK (AP) — Convicted former drug company CEO Martin Shkreli, known as “Pharma Bro,” wants to get out of prison so he can help research a treatment for the coronavirus, his lawyer said Tuesday.

Defense attorney Ben Brafman said that he will file court papers asking federal authorities to release Shkreli for three months so he can do laboratory work “under strict supervision.”

His client — best known before his arrest for drug price-gouging and his snarky online persona — is housed at a low-security prison in Allenwood, Pennsylvania.

“I have always said that if focused and left in a lab, Martin could help cure cancer,” Brafman said in a statement. “Maybe he can help the scientific community better understand this terrible virus.”

if Marty wants to volunteer to be a vaccine test subject, I'm down with that.

“I have always said that if focused and left in a lab, Martin could help cure cancer,”

Super cool story, bro, but needs more orcs and wizards.

13. under strict supervision

He probably wants the Epstein supervision
The grifter needs to go nowhere
Though, if he wants out, I'd be okay with it. From his minimum security prison (where, I recall, he was caught with contraband cellphone) and moved to a medium security prison

17. Just imagine - Al Capone wants out of prison

to help the Chicago police curb crime

or:

Aldof Hitler wants the allies to stop bombing
so the Nazis could study the effects of warfare on the German people

or:

The captain of the Titanic wanted to postpone sailing
So he could study the affect of ice vs. steel plating

30. But ... he can play one on Wall Street!

From Wikipedia, Shkreli ...

- Received a bachelor's degree in business administration from Baruch College in 2004
- Told Vanity Fair that he developed an interest in chemistry when a family member suffered from treatment-resistant depression.

Yeah, not a scientist. He could volunteer to demonstrate the effects of hydroxychloroquine overdosing.
