Another Shining Example of an American Job Creator

Note he made his millions as a "rentier" - sitting on his ass collecting profits from investments - rather than working for a living.

Ian Milhiser at Think Progress:

Gurbaksh Chahal is a very wealthy man. He’s made millions of dollars via online advertising startups, and he currently leads the $100 million-a-year company RadiumOne. He also allegedly beat his girlfriend for 30 minutes straight, striking or kicking her 117 times. At least four times during this extended beating, Chahal told his girlfriend that “I’m going to kill you.”

Prosecutors believed that they had an airtight case against Chahal — since the tech millionaire’s home security system reportedly videotaped the entire attack.
You know what's coming, right? Bad search, no warrant, girlfriend clams up out of terror for her life, video tossed, criminal walks.

But because this motherfucker is rich, he's also a WATB.
Without crucial evidence implicating Chahal, prosecutors dropped all 45 felony counts against him and he eventually plead guilty to two misdemeanors.

Then he went on Twitter to complain about this outcome.
A $500 fine is what he's complaining about. The same amount of money that falls into his lap with no effort on his part every 2-1/2 minutes.

When repugs talk about our precious job creators who must be given every last dime of middle-class wealth so they'll keep getting wealthier, this is who they're talking about.

Deport them all to the Galtian Paradise of Somalia, where there are no taxes and no laws to stop them from killing anybody they want.

As always, Wonkette nails it.
