Disgraced Theranos CEO Elizabeth Holmes to plead insanity

Well, it's not as if she's guilty of rioting. I mean the patients all got their blood tests, albeit fake ones, they still got one. Fraud is hard, y'all.

Antisocial personality disorder AKA sociopathy Is the one and she is that. But does this qualify for an "insanity" plea? She's never going to be cured of being a sociopath. She needs actual prison time - punishment! Hideous cunt!

by Anonymousreply 109/11/2020

That theranos documentary was amazing. She's a total sociopath.

by Anonymousreply 209/11/2020

Android. Where would she be sent if she was found guilty by reason of insanity?

by Anonymousreply 309/11/2020

I think she should be tried for murder.

Who’d she murder, r4?

OP. This woman has got too much hair.

Dangling Tendrils is SO last decade!

As a result, tens of thousands of patients may have been given incorrect blood-test results which, in turn, could result in serious health consequences due to: incorrect diagnoses; the initiation of unnecessary or inappropriate treatments; a delay in or failure to seek treatment for a treatable health condition; the implementation of an ineffective or inappropriate plan of treatment; and/or exposure to unnecessary, inappropriate or potentially harmful treatments. [1]

So - given the high failure rate of test results and the sheer volume of tests (3 million +) it is well within statistical probability that someone died as the result of a Theranos administered blood test. The death could have resulted from:

Incorrect diagnosis (either false positive or false negative) The initiation of unnecessary or inappropriate treatment Delay or failure to seek treatment for a treatable health condition The implementation of an ineffective or inappropriate plan of treatment Exposure to unnecessary, inappropriate or potentially harmful treatment

Is it an American thing that people rush to buy and consume hogwash snake oil quackery and are shocked (SHOCKED!) that they fell for a scam?

There is a reason why people should get a "second opinion" when it comes to medical consultations. Putting all trust in some new medical invention? Insanity.

by Anonymousreply 809/11/2020

Yes, r7, but you can’t charge someone with murder because it’s within statistical probability that her actions resulted in someone’s death.

I do hope she doesn’t get off as easy as it seems she might. The insanity defense, on the one hand, strikes me as shameless and on the other, well, maybe she IS insane (but probably not in a way that would prevent her from realizing what she did was wrong).

by Anonymousreply 909/11/2020

She's guilty of reckless endangerment. Not sure if a privileged white woman can be charged for that though. Especially when she made those men on her company's board look like utter fools, and they don't want to get dragged further into the mess.

She ran a billion dollar company. She wasn’t exhibiting mental symptoms before nor expressed any mental episodes. She’s a scam artist to the end. She won’t be able to claim insanity, it’s too tall an order.

It’s important to note she “glamoured” people- it was like a confidence spell that she cast- convincing everyone and getting on the front page of magazines.

I really hope she does time, if she and Trump get away unscathed and free from any accountability for their actions, this generation and the next two are truly fucked.

by Anonymousreply 1109/11/2020

R9 In the US you can - a little thing called "Depraved-heart murder". There doesn't have to be an intention to kill, just that the action causes a real and grave risk of death, and in fact leads to that death.

In any case, I hope the legal system sends the bitch to jail for a long time and makes sure that she never has a dime to her name again.

by Anonymousreply 1209/11/2020

I agree you can't charge on a statistical chance of death AND that is why this CRIMINAL operation should be investigated thoroughly. The fraud was not just financial. It was medical fraud. I am sure if the correct resources were put they would find real deaths!

by Anonymousreply 1309/11/2020

To constitute depraved indifference, the defendant's conduct must be 'so wanton, so deficient in a moral sense of concern, so lacking in regard for the life or lives of others, and so blameworthy as to warrant the same criminal liability as that which the law imposes upon a person who intentionally causes a crime.

Put that faux Steve Jobs away!

If she can successfully plead insanity then anyone can get away with anything.

CEOs = sociopaths. Capitalism has tried to convenience us otherwise for decades - but the reality is in order to put money first over people, the best personality to have is that of a sociopath who doesn’t care about other people.

by Anonymousreply 1909/11/2020

Every minute she exists as a free person outside a maximum security prison is an insult to every law-abiding citizen.

We need to start trying white collar criminals with the same gusto reserved for a black thief.

by Anonymousreply 2009/11/2020

I recommend both the podcast and the HBO documentary if you haven't already listened/watched. Both are well done. I think John Carreyrou (and the author who tipped him off), the intern who was in conflict with his grandpa, the lab woman who wrote the email, are all heroes. Holmes and Theranos would have been figured out eventually but they saved lives.

Really hope she is criminally charged.

by Anonymousreply 2109/11/2020

I think she's tremendous.

She ran through a screen door in a rage after losing at Monopoly as a child. The girl is fucking nuts.

by Anonymousreply 2509/11/2020

I would like to see her tested daily, and "treated" for every misdiagnosis and not treated for every real "diagnosis". Since she has no guilt, she will surely be flattered to spend so much time with her machines. Every day a new treatment for a disease she doesn't have. Until she is poisoned to death by unnecessary medicine. Hopefully, a long slow death. Also, they can do this in a room overlooking Silicon Valley, and live stream it. There will be nonstop documentaries played in her prison cell of successful Silicon Valley entrepreneurs who are lauded and not in prison.

Her pussy stinks.

The criminal charges against her for defrauding doctors and patients are being challenged and it doesn't look like these will be finally brought or she'll be convicted.

I think its a travesty of justice.

A quack doctor would totally get busted.

miscarriage of justice?

It's the investors who are going to work her over ultimately. Did she marry her new bf? He must be a piece of work as well to want to be with that tub of human garbage.

by Anonymousreply 3009/11/2020

Regardless of her punishment in the courts, the real punishment is that she's ruined for life. A grifter like her loves nothing more than to grift, and now she can't.

by Anonymousreply 3109/11/2020

Grifters don't let a little thing like a conviction or indictment stop them......if she doesn't go to jail, she'll be back with some new scam......

I have no doubts she's criminally insane, but she still needs to be locked up.

If she has $$$, and she does, she won't be an outcast.

by Anonymousreply 3809/11/2020

When I watched the HBO doc on her right after quarantine started, I literally kept saying out loud, "This bitch is fucking nuts." That being said, the fact that she's trying to plead a mental disorder is laughable. It's almost like she's believing all the people who said she was psychotic, borderline, and a sociopath...all of which were true. That being said, she was a smart, conniving young woman who knew precisely what she was doing to bank all this $$$ for a fraudulent idea. This is her lawyers attempting to use some loophole(s). The fact that she put so many people's well-being in jeopardy should count for something in the case.

R39 here...I overused "That being said," before anyone says that! I'll "Mary!" myself.

What was her exit strategy? Surely she must have known she would not be able to get away once the big was up.

by Anonymousreply 4109/12/2020

"fake it to you make it" - she was deluded and pathological and felt they would eventually get something working. Or sell the company and move on. Even bankrupt the company and move on. She's like Trump. Fake it fake it fake it fake it fake it fake it. - that's all they know

R35, I bet the top of her head opens like the lid of a box and a smaller, second head with a cyclops eye pops out. It too has a fake deep voice but only sings Christmas carols.
