March 23 (Bloomberg) -- For Vincent P. McCrudden, the former hedge-fund manager charged with threatening to kill financial regulators including U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission Chairwoman Mary L. Schapiro, his prosecution is the culmination of a decade-long government vendetta. McCrudden was arrested Jan. 13 on charges he used profanity-filled e-mails and Web posts to threaten 47 current and former officials of the SEC, the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, the National Futures Association and the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority. According to him, he is being persecuted for fighting back against unfair regulatory actions that destroyed his career. The 50-year-old ex-commodities trader sits in a New York City jail near John F. Kennedy International Airport, facing a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison on two federal counts of âtransmission of threats to injure.â Prosecutors alleged McCrudden had an âexecutionâ list on his company website. âGo buy a gun, and letâs get to work in taking back our country from these criminals,â he wrote on the site, according to prosecutors. âI will be the first one to lead by example.â http://noir.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=20601087&sid=a3tJDKdA3F04&pos=7 Mr. McCrudden must have been very angry with SEC, FINRA, CFTC and NFA. Can you understand him?
