Martin Shkreli, former CEO of Turing Pharmaceuticals AG, was arrested for allegedly misleading investors and looting a publicly traded company. Prior to his arrest, Mr. Shkreli had become despised for raising the price of a drug that fights AIDS

According to the New York Times, Martin enraged customers when he increased the price of one pill from $13.50 to $750! He claimed, To owe it to his investors to maximize their profit.

Proverbs 11:6 teaches, The righteousness of the upright will deliver them, But the treacherous will be caught by their own greed.
