The Hardest Part Of Martin Shkreli's Trial Is Finding Jurors Who Don't Despise Him

The Hardest Part Of Martin Shkreli's Trial Is Finding Jurors Who Don't Despise Him

There are few people who are more universally hated than Martin Shkreli. That sort of thing tends to happen when you price-gouge life saving drugs, or offer your ex $10k for oral sex, or try to troll a famous comedian who recently lost their wife.

Shkreli isn't the only person who's price-gouged medicine; he just became a symbol for the disgusting practice, which is unfortunately protected under constitutional law. In fact, he's not even going to trial for his shady pharma-dealings, but instead for securities fraud.

But that doesn't make people hate him any less, a fact that is quickly proving to be difficult for his trial: because finding a jury that isn't believably biased is almost impossible at this point.

Shkreli's trial began today, but if potential juror reactions to him are any indication, this is going to be a drawn-out affair.

Jurors just can't keep their opinions to themselves.

Some even pantomimed killing him.

Shkreli's so disliked that there still hasn't been a single juror selected for the trial yet.

So I guess being so reviled is actually working out in his favor, now?
