very bad men "the man without a conscience" - tonight.

And no, I don't mean Ed Stelmach or Snidely Whiplash, I'm talking about Michael Ritter. Tonight, Episode 12: The Man Without a Conscience of the documentary series "Very Bad Men" airs tonight at 10pm Alberta time on Global TV.

If you're not familiar with the story, former Edmonton "lawyer," Chief Parliamentary Consel to the Alberta Legislative Assembly, business owner, philanthropist, and international man of financial scandal Michael Ritter was charged and convicted as part of a $200 million dollar international ponzi scheme. This is a made for TV scandal that includes everything from investigations by the U.S. Department of Justice to fake Belizean passports. As the documentary puts it:
The high-flying entrepreneur who loved the limelight and adulation from the public was finally convicted on two counts of massive fraud and sentenced to 10 years in prison.

this man deserves to spend the rest of his life in jail. the people who have lost everything because they had to defend themselves in a court of law over a case where system did not work should by rights have their out of costs legal expenses repaid to them by the province. can you imagine losing everything including a false friendship and trust. my heart goes out to paul and susan as i know what is like to lose everything because of a corrupt legal system and people who are not what they claim to be.
