  1. 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 “transmission of threats to injure.” Prosecutors alleged McCrudden had an “execution” list on his company website. “Go buy a gun, and let’s get to work in taking back our country from these criminals,” he wrote on the site, according to prosecutors. “I will be the first one to lead by example.”


    Mr. McCrudden must have been very angry with SEC, FINRA, CFTC and NFA. Can you understand him? :cool:
  2. My bet is, these threats, more numerous by the day, are being taken very, very seriously.

  4. Boy, there's a shocker.

    If the average guy just looks around at the devastation, realizes who's "in charge", he'd come to the same conclusion, which, if fact, is the correct conclusion.

    I certainly understand the accused's motivations for threatening SEC officials. Have you ever talked to any of them? They come across as arrogant parasitic porn-watching assholes.

    Habeus Corpus . . . ?

    criminal incarceration, now for over 2months, this Vmac has not only been denied bail after 3 different hearings, but is also being denied needed medical attention --for over a month

    a sports injury, inside, mid-february, resulted in a blown-out calf --ruptured tendon-- which has pulled the muscle up into a ball behind the knee

    doctor examination and recommendation was for surgery, Within 10 Days . . . while yet another painful month has passed, with no further medical attention being given

    . . . some 3-4 days ago, the Vmac, needing mobility in his present adverse circumstances, finally resorted to ripping off the temporary aircast, himself, as the ongoing medical negligence has reduced him to such daily pain that he is in fact forced to move around inside dragging a dead but aching leg . . .

    in light of recent reports that he Did Not Write that ostensible email from singapore, which is indeed Known by the government, as they now delay and delay and delay in the face of their lie, {as well abrogating their agreement for a speedy trial} in addition to criminally incarcerating him are they all the more so defying any pretense of justice in this case as the accused is exiled inside while undergoing this ongoing medical abuse
