Oh man! I was just reading through some of those articles. Now there's a blueprint for rounding up and disposing of millennials if it should ever come to that.

Some more pictures of the luxury accommodations. That picture of the cheese sandwich just cracks me up.

Quote:
Prosecutors had pushed for a 15-year prison sentence but McFarland's attorneys asked for leniency, claiming he suffered from mental health issues. A representative for McFarland said in a statement later on Thursday that they were appreciative of the "careful consideration" of the court.


Millennial justification.

Quote:
"And we’re grateful that the Court rejected the draconian sentence requested by the government and imposed a sentence that will allow Billy to spend the second part of his life meaningfully giving back to his community," the statement continue


Feel sorry for anyone who believes this guy will "give back to the community" after he gets out of prison. Some people are just born scammers.

Ja Rule may not be going to jail like this guy but I hope he gets taken to the woodshed from those lawsuits against him.

Love the dig at millennials but how about shout outs to all the white collar criminals from every generation including the the richest politicians robbing everyone blind.
