I don't think most on here realize just how desparate the accused are right nnow. The vast majority are in dire financial straits and some have even experienced maritial & family problems as a result of the lawsuit & federal investigations.
The number of unindicted co-conspirators who are cooperating with the government are pretty large at this point. The early birds have gotten their worm and the rest are left to dangle in the water waiting for the shark to gobble them up without remorse.
A little mixed metaphor there but I love that...actually more of a metaphor mash-up.
The shark reference is funny though. When Meffert stepped down from the CTO position, City Business ran a fluffy, sycophantic profile on him. When asked what he would do next he replied, “A shark can’t breathe unless it’s moving. There’s a part of me like that. I’m going to have to be doing something or I’ll go nuts,”
Which reminds me of a quote from Qui-Gon Jim in Star Wars I, "...Always a bigger fish."
I do feel sorry for family members though...especially children who may have to watch their parent carted off to jail.
It makes me wonder who the early birds are as well.
