Karma is a bee-yotch, no?

Bloodied and bruised, this is the shocking picture of cricket tycoon Allen Stanford after a beating by jail inmates.
His neck in a brace, his eye bleeding and half-closed and his head bandaged.
The final humiliation for Stanford, 60, awaiting trial accused of masterminding a $7billion fraud, was his feet and hands were shackled as he was taken to hospital.
