Way back when Microsoft was young Bill Gates figured out how to sell something (MSDOS) that he didn’t even own yet.
In Pelham 123 (movie) the terrorist sold stock (commodities?) before he owned it. By the terrorist act he caused the price to go down. Thus making a large profit.
says that there is a financial motivation in this Trayvon Martin – Zimmerman case. They aren’t asking for a conviction … just that he be arrested. The web site indicates that the commodity may be worth little or nothing unless and arrest is made. The arrest requires a PC – Probably cause. And that arrest is all that is required for civil trial … no conviction is necessary. The commodity then becomes potentially valuable. I’m not saying that Trayvon Martin is a commodity to be traded, in my opinion, his death is tragic and I wish for justice in the case, I’m just telling what I’m reading on the above cited web site.
