Rajaratnam Jury Says It Has Reached A Verdict

Tyler Durden's picture

If he walks, it is time to scrap insider trading laws for good. We wonder if Raj walks, whether the 20 or so coconspirators who have already pled guilty still go to jail?

More as we get it.

Rajajarara is Pakistani right?

The fact that they have taken 12 days to deliberate this gives me no faith in the legal system. Unless of course the jurors were milking the $40 per day stipend.

Sit through a divorce court proceeding and you'll find that you'll lose faith in the US legal system in about 20 minutes.

Guilty as the JUICE

This jiblottie will not see the punishment he deserves, because white collar crime laws were written by people with sympathy for the wealthy and connected.

He should be given the full twenty years in the graybar hotel, but will most likely get a hell of  a lot less. Maybe a big fine and exclusion from the boyz club.

It must be a bitch to inside trade and not be a real insider. Buffy didn't make all that cash based on hunches.

Who t f cares about all this noise now?  No one should.

There is only one event that ill matter ...

Comet Elenin is coming Sept 27, 2011.  From mythology, stars are considered agels and comets are considered archangles. Comet Elenin will be the mightiest archangel of them all.  It will try to overpower the sun (god of old) when it crosses directly between the earth and sun and it will literally fall to earth.  This comet is the origin of all the old myths about the mightiest angel who fell from grace, banished by god (the sun), and fell to earth … better known to everyone as Lucifer.

This comet’s vapor trail is saturated with dust (as all comets are) and it will sweep and engulf the earth in October (the falling angel!).  The massive vapor and dust tail will engulf the earth and create enormous rainclouds for DAYS all over the world.  Water levels will rise everywhere.

A massive flood is coming in October!  This is not a joke. This is not a test.
SP-666 will be taken out before October! 

Bankster criminals, murderers and thieves (and all their ilk) have kept this “little” event secret for centuries within their stupid childish secret society cults. For nothing but pure greed and hatred for the rest of humanity, sheeple and markets have been lied to and manipulated for millennium so those greedy little devils … “chosen people” can “inherit the earth” after this event.  They are stealing and raping everyone now to accumulate every last ounce of gold (money) before October.

Whatever your doctor prescribed you, up the fucking dosage or the voltage already.

Good, maybe they'll stop cloud seeding with chemtrails.

Many would perish, comets don't discriminate.

Dude, I shouldn't even respond but, here is the "other side of that story":

Comet Elenin should be at its brightest shortly before the time of its closest approach to Earth on Oct. 16 of this year. At its closest point, it will be 35 million kilometers (22 million miles) from us. Can this icy interloper influence us from where it is, or where it will be in the future? What about this celestial object inspiring some shifting of the tides or even tectonic plates here on Earth? There have been some incorrect Internet speculations that external forces could cause comet Elenin to come closer.

"Comet Elenin will not encounter any dark bodies that could perturb its orbit, nor will it influence us in any way here on Earth," said Don Yeomans of NASA's Near-Earth Object Program Office at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif. "It will get no closer to Earth than 35 million kilometers [about 22 million miles]. "

"Comet Elenin will not only be far away, it is also on the small side for comets," said Yeomans. "And comets are not the most densely-packed objects out there. They usually have the density of something akin to loosely packed icy dirt.

"So you've got a modest-sized icy dirtball that is getting no closer than 35 million kilometers," said Yeomans. "It will have an immeasurably miniscule influence on our planet. By comparison, my subcompact automobile exerts a greater influence on the ocean's tides than comet Elenin ever will."

Yeomans did have one final thought on comet Elenin.

"This comet may not put on a great show. Just as certainly, it will not cause any disruptions here on Earth. But there is a cause to marvel," said Yeomans. "This intrepid little traveler will offer astronomers a chance to study a relatively young comet that came here from well beyond our solar system's planetary region. After a short while, it will be headed back out again, and we will not see or hear from Elenin for thousands of years. That's pretty cool."

Yeah and having nuclear power has no risk to humans on earth either. 75% of the oil in the gulf evaporated, like magic. Subprime is contained.

If this creates solar flares on the edgy sun then we might get thrown into the stoneage.

1859 solar flares fried telegraph systems. Imagine what they can do to your iphone. No power, no water. Be thirsty, my friends.

In the world I see – you're stalking elk through the damp canyon forests around the ruins of Rockefeller Center. You'll wear leather clothes that will last you the rest of your life. You'll climb the wrist-thick kudzu vines that wrap the Sears Tower. And when you look down, you'll see tiny figures pounding corn, laying strips of venison on the empty car pool lane of some abandoned superhighway.

If not you have persisted longer than a common variant of dumbass and you have achieved the exalted status of schizophrenic. Congratulations.

Even if he is convicted we should scrap insider trading laws. A single conviction every once in a while is no deterrent.

Real time public disclosure of all insider trades makes insider trading rules unnecessary.

Please write an article and submit it to Tyler...

Tyler, please post his article at midnight and it will be gone by morning...hopefully like SP666_IsComing

Guilty or not there's someone taking his place willing to do the same things, only not so obvious to the rest of the world, which runs on insider trading and every other form of market manipulation one can imagine.

Repeat after me: slap on the wrist. When the fat bastard starts to suffer from heart problems after eighteen months of continuous ass rapes he´s let go on humanitarian whathaveyou... By then we´ll all have bigger issues to deal with so no one will care.

How about going after Mary Schapiro and Cox? The system is fucked up and cannot be corrected like this.

Bob Moffet (dismissed IBM exec) has already pled guility in this case. His defense was that he was in love with Rajaratnam's partner and gave away inside  info (about AMD) to her for love. Have you seen that ugly bitch?  He should have gotten a lethal injection just for cheating on his wife (who is sick with MS) with the uglyiest bitch this side of Maiden Lane.

A trial by jury is likely to get any bankster a life in the slammer.  That is why you very seldom see jury trials for banksters.  There are always plea bargains, petty fines, and dismissals.

The case for not going to prison for this sub human was that he has a 'had a genuine concern for children'. What a Joke!
