    I was reading this at work this week and the guy who sits next to me is from Long Island. Starting talking to him about it and he knew like the whole story. He referred to the whole industry as "The Shitter Mafia" lol

    The craziest part to me was the girl who went to Harvard and Colombia Med then dropped out of her residency in Cali to move in with this crazy person.

    It's fucked up but also weirdly impressive. I'm positive I could not convince a group of college girls to abandon their families and give up everything behind some fabricated conspiracy theories. How did he do that shit?

    I listened to a podcast about that chick. Totally mindblowing. I dated a girl in college who was from a lot of money and after school she moved to New York and started running in those kinds of trust fund-ish, arty circles. It honestly doesn't surprise me that a bunch of those people got taken. A lot of those people barely notice money as a concept. The one piece that surprised me is how much rope some of those hotels gave her. I guess you don't want to upset someone they think is a very wealthy client but good god how many "oh the money is on its way" excuses do you get?

    I was not very impressed with the manliness of Daniel in that story.

    i loved the guy posting memes about how tough he was and how people who lived off the government were moochers was on disability, demanding the county play peacekeeper and saying they should provide free counseling for him

    not that he’s wrong on those demands but lol at trashing BIG GUBMINT and then crying about them not catering to your every need

    i think the shooting was justified but he’s a hypocritical moron so i don’t feel too bad for him

    I think I'd find him guilty of the current manslaughter option....I just can't see letting a guy off for shooting someone in the back. That being said, he was in a pretty shitty spot thinking this guy was going to kill him and having zero help from the police. Would have been more justified if he killed him when Knight showed up with one of his buddies.

    yeah but him taking the phone is so big. he had no money, no way to get to civilization and had a crazy guy threatening him. that phone was his only link to help and taking it may as well have been a death sentence. i guess it’s still manslaughter but idk i feel like he didn’t have a choice

    Agreed. Also, the world is a better place without Knight as a part of it, so I don't really care.

    I was thinking the same thing when I read it. It seems there have been a handful of similar articles posted here over the years....but, each one is interesting. These people are definitely sociopaths/crazy.

    We had some people open up a restaurant next door that were just pure conmen and it blew me away they managed to con so many large companies for so many years all over the country plus bilk Chinese investors. They probably aren't done yet.
