classic case of fact being stranger than fiction -- I figured it was a guy doing a bad job of making up a story/accusation until I got to the part where police apparently find the evidence.

There has to be a bad joke in there about "shooting", but I'll be damned if I can think of one.

Holy shit. That's, well, I guess that's one way to get your way. Yikes. (I sense some Detroit Lions and Chicago Black Hawks fans are taking copious notes about Messrs. Millen and Wirtz...)

Fully loaded but only half cocked, by the sound of it.

Assuming the charges are true (that is, accurately recount what happened rather than provable to legal standards), I can't imagine why Morris would expect the document signed under duress to hold up when Paladini went public. Because who would believe the shares were signed over for no payment at all, even in QPR?
