Some jerks are selling them for up to $60,000.
You read that right.
From an article in SPIN:
“Disasters bring out the best and the worst of human nature, and unfortunately Hurricane Sandy has been no exception. On December 12, the 12.12.12 Concert for Sandy Relief will take place at New York’s Madison Square Garden, where Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, Paul McCartney, Kanye West, Eddie Vedder, Dave Grohl, Chris Martin, Billy Joel, Alicia Keys, Bon Jovi, Eric Clapton, Roger Waters, and the Who will perform to benefit the Robin Hood Relief Fund. In the meantime, on the secondary market, a small number of walking pieces of human filth are robbing from the disaster-stricken to give to themselves. ‘Tis the season!
Ticketmaster waived its usual fees for the sold-out tickets, which originally cost from $150 to $2,500. However, tickets are still available through secondhand ticket-sellers such as StubHub, where as of this typing you could buy your way into the 12.12.12 concert for up to $59,999.99. As the Wall Street Journal and CBSNewYork have reported, the scalping of tickets intended to help storm victims has drawn heated criticism. “They should be in jail, those people,” one Staten Island man who lost his home to Sandy told CBS.”
Your Suggestions for the appropriate punishment?
