And no one gets a horse’s head in their bed.
Judge: Plea Bargain Denied! I find the defendant GUILTY, and sentence him to Life in Alcatraz, with no possibility of Parole! bangs Gavel on podium Court, Adjourned!
Sometimes someone gets hurt, but that’s just business.
What does he propose to rebrand to? Trump Organization?
MAGA aka Trump for Speaker while the accused even looks like Bannon.
Judge: “Here’s da ting. Leave the gun, take the cannoli. That’s the deal.”
Is this was Timewaste… Facebook did?
Not the best caricature of Zuckerberg, but I get your point.
Not a plea as intended; an offer not to be refused.
I have always wondered do Law schools have a class on how to keep a straight face ?
Alcatraz is no more, better send him to Q
This Lawyer is almost as nuts as Lin Wood…
Sounds just like corporate America to me
If you don’t take this deal, I can’t guarantee your safety from my client.
Hey, he is meeting them half way – he did let ’em put him on trial.
And yet it has worked.
We don’t know the charges. Perhaps he adopted a truth in advertising policy and sold his product as Coke, but the Coke™ company objected and he is promising to use a new name… Pepsi™.
He doesn´t look like he works for Apple!
If he’s a Republican politician, that would work.
It worked in the health insurance industry a couple decades ago. I learned that the NAMES we know have corporate offices; but the companies we deal with are a local (in my case statewide) franchise. Local guys got caught with a list of no-no’s and corporate was banned for life in our state.
So, local company that did the dirty deeds picked up a new franchise and have become largest insurer again.
Some entities see what is coming and simply avoid the court thing by making the change seem like a normal business decision. The bottom line remains the motivator, as it has and will forever.
Silly crook. That sort of thing only works if you’re talking to a congressional committee.
Ya know, I HATE it when the comix are true. . .
Isn’t the defendant’s table on the wrong side?
I was at Alcatraz once. I used to raise birds there.
At least he’s not claiming immunity as the rightful POTUS.
Instead of rubbing people out, he’s gonna send them to China
So that’s the reason facebook is now meta.
Business as usual
Must be a white-collar crime. If it was beating your baby momma or ripping off a store, there would be zero bail and ready to hit the streets again.
I wonder if “The Squad”, in their drive to empty the prisons, realize that their efforts would release white-collar criminals as well?
I was going to find you not guilty, but I think I’ll give you ten years to be in the safe side.
This is actually considered a perfectly acceptable “plea bargain” for large corporations.
I think we just experienced such a rebranding of justice. I’ll let you all argue over to which recent judgement I refer.
I work for the court system for 30 plus years and I seen worst plea bargains. What is sad, some were accepted by the court.
A typical plea deal for corporate criminals.
Mr. King’s attempt at calling his store Kmart…
My own plea bargain was “Go ahead and take the physical exam. If you flunk it, they wouldn’t have taken you anyway, and we’ll drop your draft-evasion charges.” So it turned out. I managed to outlast the war, the draft, and Nixon that way — plus picking up a good practical understanding of how bureaucracies work that’s served me well in later life.
So now it’ll be called the Tramp Organization?
Rebranded as a political party.
Forget crime. As somebody once advised L. Ron Hubbard, “The real money is in religion.”
Soooo… his client is the CEO of the socialist propaganda and private information gathering monopoly formerly known as Facebook.
That doesn’t look like Mark Zuckerberg.
Am I the only one that thinks ‘and no one gets hurt’ sounds like a threat against the judge?
Wouldn’t it be nice if this were a joke?
Famous gag from THE FLINTSTONES—
Defense lawyer says—“Does my client look like a stick up man?”
He turns around to see the jury standing with their hands up.
I worked in SF for 15 years. Most if that time the nearest window to me looked down on the Embarcadero. I could see Alcatraz and the Bay Bridge.
Facebook on trial . . .
Mafia, Inc. Why not?
