CLEVELAND, OH – American businessman Kobe Bryant’s death on January 26 came three days after the Indian immigrant fentanyl dealer and racketeer he was suing was sent to a federal prison for 5.5 years. John Kapoor was a major investor in the High Tech Pharma company Bryant sued in 2017 for branding the “Black Mamba” nickname he’s used since the beginning of his National Basketball Association (NBA) career.
Bryant’s claim against Kapoor was dismissed, but it didn’t die before he accused the Indian immigrant fentanyl dealer of putting an illegal substance in his dietary supplements. Federal authorities sentenced Kapoor and his co-defendants on January 23, 2020 at 2:30 p.m. for racketeering. Some of the claims the FBI made against Kapoor in their indictment were inserted in Bryant’s litigation.
Jurors during Kapoor’s criminal trial were shown a video of a parodied song written by American recording artist Kendrick Lamar with Drake, 2-Chainz, ASAP Rocky, Stephen Shebib and Major Static that his company’s sales reps parodied to promote Kapoor’s fentanyl product to doctors he was bribing to over-prescribe the addictive and deadly drug to other Americans at the same time Bryant was suing his companies. The parody was titled “Great by Choice” and incuded the following lyric.
“I love titration, yeah, that’s not a problem. I got new patients and I got a lot of ’em. Build relationships that are healthy. Got more docs than Janelle’s got selfies.”
Titration is the process of measuring a patients weight to determine the right dose of medication. The problem with patient weights today is medical personnel are too lazy to ask patients to disrobe to get true weights; so they’re estimating the person’s weight based on some uniform calculation of what they think a fully clothed person’s clothes weigh.
The purpose of the video was to encourage more doctors to prescribe the unsafe fentanyl spray Kapoor sold to Americans with no regard for how it would affect their health. He sought entry into the world’s “billionaire’s club” and care for money outweighed care for Americans.
The United States Department of Justice in its indictment of Kapoor and his Russian “American” Insys sales team charged the company with lying to the Food & Drug Administration about the tests and safety of their products.
According to the Justice Department, every manufacturer of a new drug was required to obtain approval of a new drug application (NDA) from the United States Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) before introducing its new drug into interstate commerce, unless subject to an exemption not applicable here.
To obtain approval of an NDA, the manufacturer had to demonstrate to FDA that the new drug was safe and effective for its intended uses. Labeling on the drug also had to be truthful accurate and non-misleading. Kapoor and his team lied on everything and committed wire fraud when they mailed documents to the U.S. Food & Drug Administration.
An indictment was issued against Kapoor and the Russian “Americans” in his crime gang out of the Massachussetts U.S. Attorney’s office. A superseding indictment was issued against his organized crime associates. Federal authorities weren’t happy with the offending Indian immigrant who’d disrespected this nation’s hospitality and ruined American lives. 400,000 Americans died of fentanyl overdoses; and the numbers dramatically increased after this evil and ungrateful alien joined the pharmaceutical market in 2012.
“As alleged, these executives created a corporate culture at Insys that utilized deception and bribery as an acceptable business practice, deceiving patients, and conspiring with doctors and insurers,” said Harold H. Shaw, Special Agent in Charge of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Boston Field Division. “The allegations of selling a highly addictive opioid cancer pain drug to patients who did not have cancer, make them no better than street-level drug dealers.”
“These Insys executives allegedly fueled the opioid epidemic by paying doctors to needlessly prescribe an extremely dangerous and addictive form of fentanyl,” said Phillip Coyne, Special Agent in Charge for the Office of Inspector General of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. “Corporate executives intent on illegally driving up profits need to be aware they are now squarely in the sights of law enforcement.”
The indictment alleged that Michael L. Babich, 40, of Scottsdale, Ariz., the former CEO and President of the company; Alec Burlakoff, 42, of Charlotte, N.C., former Vice President of Sales; Richard M. Simon, 46, of Seal Beach, Calif., former National Director of Sales; former Regional Sales Directors, Sunrise Lee, 36, of Bryant City, Mich. and Joseph A. Rowan, 43, of Panama City, Fla.; and former Vice President of Managed Markets, Michael J. Gurry, 53, of Scottsdale, Ariz., conspired to bribe practitioners in various states, many of whom operated pain clinics, in order to get them to prescribe a fentanyl-based pain medication, called Subsys.
Federal authorities described Kapoor’s Subsys as a criminal enterprise that marketed fentanyl as a powerful narcotic intended to treat cancer patients suffering intense episodes of breakthrough pain.
The doctors Kapoor’s sales team bribed wrote large numbers of prescriptions to treat patients for cancer who didn’t have it. One of his sales reps, Sunrise Lee, gave a doctor a lap dance if he prescribed the dangerous fentanyl spray Lamar was helping Kapoor sell to them.
Bryant was moving into the energy drink and supplement market that Kapoor’s High Tech Pharma of Atlanta, Georgia was also engaged in aggressively. The video of the parodied song Lamar and the other stars co-wrote bragged that this Indian immigrant racketeer controlled 38 percent of the fentanyl market during a training conference.
Kapoor’s Subsys, Insys and High Tech Pharma officials didn’t like Bryant’s litigation and his death is fueling widespread “Dr. Sebi-like” assassination theories that the widely-loved and respected NBA legend was targeted for death.
Bryant’s Sikorsky S-76 was an executive model helicopter built by Lockheed Martin initially to transport oil workers to offshore rigs and back. The first model was built in 1971. The cost is about $13 million.
The Federal Aviation Administration released its preliminary accident investigation report of the Bryant crash on January 27th, the day after his helicopter went down in Calabasas, California hills where Ronald Reagan lived after his presidency ended. No conclusions were drawn about the accident. Four, including Bryant’s daughter Gianna, were among the non-surviving passengers in the completely destroyed aircraft.
U.S. Today featured a story about Bryant’s death and the reporter observed a search for the NBA legend died returned with the date of his “assassination.”
A search of the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) preliminary accident report data identified 6 airline fatalities within 10 days of his helicopter’s Calabasas, California crash. Altogether the FAA recorded 77 airline “events” along with the 6 fatalities 10 days before his crash.
An FAA accident and incident investigation notice filed on January 23, 2020 shows four U.S. citizens from Las Vegas, Nevada died in Australia when the Lockheed E130 they flew to help put out the wildfires the country is experiencing crashed while conducting firebombing operations. The circumstances for the crash is unknown. Like’ Bryant’s, the airplane was destroyed.
On January 20 in Jacksonville, Texas, a Cessna 150 crashed and killed the pilot after he flew into a eletric powerline. And on January 16 in Ogden, Utah a Cessna 310 crashed into a townhome under unknown circumstances.
Bryant was 41 when he died. Gianna was 13. The other dead were coaching legend John Altobelli, his wife, Keri, and their daughter Alyssa.
Kapoor will have to spend the next 5.5 years among incarcerated American citizens whose lives might have been personally affected by his reckless disregard for the lives of other Americans and possibly those of their families. Approximately 500,000 of U.S. Senator Kamala Harris’ Indian countrymen live in the U.S. About 800,000 Indian green card workers are in the U.S. unlawfully.
