Ridiculous thing to stick a person in a cage for, especially somebody dumb enough to pay 1/2 million dollars to get his two dumb kids accepted.

Well we have deduced that the real estate business is a criminal Enterprise with little protections for the consumer, with payoffs, bribes, mail fraud, banking fraud as a regular, government abetted RICO part of the scheme. Why wouldn't he think bribery, fraud and conspiracy were OK?
