John McAfee Collapses At Guatemala Detention Center

timothy posted about a year and a half ago | from the send-lawyers-guns-and-nitro dept.

Crime 219

An anonymous reader writes with this snippet from ABC News: "Software millionaire John McAfee has been taken to a Guatemala City hospital via ambulance after suffering a possible heart attack at the detention center where he is being held. McAfee, 67 — who may soon be deported back to Belize, where authorities want to question him about the shooting death of his neighbor — was reportedly prostrate on the floor of his cell and unresponsive. He was wheeled into the hospital on a gurney, but when nurses began removing his suit, he became responsive and said, 'Please, not in front of the press.' Earlier today, McAfee had complained of chest pains."

The biggest question in all this mess is how long it is going to take Intel to order the name change on McAfee, Inc.

My bet: 1 week
New name: ??? (does anyone have a suggestion on a name that makes it sound like the company wasn't founded by a kook)

Sadly, it doesn't. An acquaintence of mine was jailed for some minor offense here in Sangamon County, and he died in agony from a perforated colon because they thought he just had a stomach ache. Of course, his family sucessfully sued the county for a shitload of money.

They're not going to let you out of custody, they're going to have a guard on you at the hospital. When the hospital releases you, back to jail you go.

Your "oldest trick" is quite ineffective. It also costs the county a lot of money.

Hey, if there's one thing he knows, it's false positives...even in the medical community. If it looks like a heart attack and it acts like a heart attack, then it must be a heart attack. Except it really doesn't look like a heart attack, lol. The other possibility is basically, well, withdrawal will do that to you. In either case, what a jackass.

Why do people always target drugs?

Honestly, when you're around 67 years old, I'd like to see you spend a full month running from the government; little sleep, always on the move, old worn down body, hiding in trees, mind fucked from all the worrying...

And *then* try telling me that it's drugs.

I'm not saying that there are in fact no drugs involved--I don't know, and neither do you--but seriously, quit placing the blame for every single health condition on recreational drugs for a change. If drugs are found to be a cause, then you could add those to the potential causes, but don't fucking forget old age, which you don't need any drugs at all to take a toll on your health.

And you know what? A lot of people take drugs, er, I mean "medication" that their doctors prescribe them once they get up in age and start having heart problems (who would've guessed, eh?). Ever think that if he is supposed to be taking prescription drugs, that maybe, just maybe, they're not exactly his top priority while trying to save himself from the Belize government? What if the *lack* of drugs combined with stress and old age are doing him in? There are too many factors that could be involved, do us all a favor and shut the fuck up about recreational drugs.

If trolls are trying to entrain and boost other people's egos, in particular the people they are baiting, then more power to them, as that is practically a public service.

but the more McAfee pulls these stunts the more he looks guilty in my eyes.

I will give him credit for making every effort to remain out of jail and out out of Belize for that matter.

It seems clear that 1 or more of 3 possibilities are the truth.
1. He killed his neighbor in retaliation for his dogs being poisoned.
2. He is innocent and being persecuted by froces within the Belize government and police department.
3. He is having or has had a psychotic episode.

I am mostly convinced that #3 is true. I wonder if both of the others are also true.

1. Killed neighbour.
2. a) If he'd paid up some more, he'd have been ignored.
2. b) He didn't so they're persecuting him.

They aren't mutually exclusive. ONLY IF the Belize police ALWAYS and with zeal persue cases of possible murder could they be mutually exclusive.

The police don't have to have no legal excuse to be persecuting you as well as prosecuting your case.

Many years ago this person founded a software company, cashed out, and moved to Latin America to do lots and lots and lots of drugs. So yea, there really isn't a reason it should be Slashdot since this person has not been relevant in the Nerd fields for a very long time.

* a compound with military-grade security
* allegations of corrupt local officials with commando units demanding bribes
* embedded American journalists following the saga
* a murder with alternate allegations of settling a vendetta versus a framing job
* millionaire hiding in dirt to avoid authorities
* extreme measures to hide location, including numerous disguises and a decoy with a North Korean passport
* arrest and detection in yet another third-world country

Oh yeah, forgot about the allegations of experimental drug use on part of said millionaire.

There was an article in 2010(I think, maybe 2009) that Wired ran about McAfee and how he baited some Wired reporter that was trying to do a big expose on him. He made up outrageous claims of bribing the police and such. When I first saw these headlines a few weeks back, I immediately thought he had moved beyond one magazine and was baiting the whole world. I still haven't read anything that convinces me that this isn't a hoax(but I admit I haven't RTFA on any of them.) My google-fu is weak and I don't know where my dead tree versions of Wired are right now.

What's odd is being deported to Belize... (1)

Does no-one else find it odd he's being deported to Belize? He's a U.S. citizen, he should be deported here. There is no extradition treaty between the two countries. Everyone on Slashdot in the story where he was captured assumed he would be exported to the U.S...

I'm not sure he's all there mentally but I am sure he's being screwed over by Belize and will be killed if he gets back there. Or possibly now and they'll just frame it as a heart attack.

Poisoned? (1)

Belize officials want him dead. Was this an assassination attempt? This is what Mcafee was worried about.
