If Hunter S. Thompson had written Bonfire of the Vanities he might have come up with someone like Vincent McCrudden. A commodities trader, he’d long been engaged in a furious one-man war against his regulators. In 2009, for example, he tried to sue them for a billion dollars…

The above named entities operate like organized crime and use additional enforcment agencies like the US Attorneys Office, the FBI and US Marshals offices like their “capos”. For example, Chris Veetch at the US Attorneys office in Chicago does the bidding for the NFA out of Chicago. Dan Driscoll at the NFA in particular operates as a mafia “don”.

Last year the regulators brought charges against McCrudden for the operation of unregistered commodity pools. His response, it seems, was not entirely professional

You fucking corrupt piece of shit! I have let so many of you fucking corrupt mother fuckers of the hook for doing this to my life. You my friend are not going to get away with this. I am going to do this my way now and you, your corrupt mother fucking piece of shit are first or my list! Laugh mother fucker…

…and so on. McCrudden took to his personal website in an attempt to inspire the world to rally for his cause…

In order to stop the libel, slander and harrassment at the hands of these entities, and with no available forum in the US justice system, Mr. McCrudden has started a process to enact payback for years of Government abuse. As a twice survivor of the WTC bombings, Mr. McCrudden knows all too well what the Government can do in the “name of public interest”. Mr. McCrudden believes the 23 friends he lost on 9-11-2001 would have had their full support. Wake up my fellow citizens and middle class and go look into the mirror, because you my friends are the face of the new Al Qaeda! Civil disobedience can be a start for justice. Its us (middle class)¬†against them (Government officials and the Bourgeosie).¬†Start acting now before its too late!

Help, mystifyingly, failed to arrive. McCrudden posted up an “execution list” that named his regulators before noting – with unconscious sagacity – that “there is no good way to execute this plan“. No, there wasn’t. He was arrested. His example shows that revolutionary fervour lurks within the breast of every man. In a highly individualised market, though, you’ll get highly individualised rebellion.
