L.I. War Profiteer Makes Bail

Via Newsday, it looks like war profiteer and stock fraud indictee David H. Brooks has been released into a special situation on bail. Why do I think they'll regret this? Oh, that's why:
Court documents alleged that "literally dozens" of witnesses said they feared Brooks, based on a "history of intimidation and threats." The documents alleged he had ties to organized crime and, more recently, sent $4 million to tribal holy men in Senegal, West Africa, for religious ceremonies to win his acquittal. That country does not have an extradition treaty with the United States.

Picture of the virtuous, railroaded and completely innocent Brooks taken from Newsday.
