For those of you just joining us, this is pretty much how the previous 70+ pages have broken down:

1) Man gets murdered;
2) Investigators do just about everything other than investigate.

Tell me he's wrong!

So this is basically Maerc's invitation for any professional or wannabe bounty hunter to try their luck...
(And/or for amateur sleuths, because there has to be detective work to be done first - but after that, I rather doubt that Maerc's next planned step is delivering the perpetrators to the authorities for a fair trial...)
And I bet a very generous reward is implied for the solver of this case...

Yeah, you’ve pretty much described the next page.

"Summarize the narrative." "...my corporate assets were suborned by forces unknown..."

It seems like telling lies that don't even try to be believable is a winning leadership strategy in America, for the bigly of winnerest. Either Maerc is lying about not knowing who used his toys to perform remote mass murder, or he is too careless and stupid for words. Mind you, it could be true he genuinely does not know who stole his stuff: Most people are too careless and stupid for words with respect to IT and IT-controlled assets.

"What I find amazing ... I'm somehow painted the eternal victim."

Also, murder investigations generally take more than two days to get much unless the suspect was witnessed in the act, then arrested and/or shot promptly. I don't know what the FBI and police have been doing about this case, but Maerc is being quite impatient. He ought to be old enough to know that most murder investigations and prosecutions take at least months, and usually years. Maybe he does know, and this is a bigger lie than just CYA about how the responsible got their hands on his corporate assets?

You talk about leadership as if there were some sort of rule set involved. Maybe there is... in which case the ability to react swiftly to chance events and wrest control of their "meaning" is obviously a major skill, as opposed to "patience" or "transparency" or "ownership".

Excuse me for wanting the human species to survive. The problem is that we are in the era of accidentally and purposefully created deserts, plagues, and the ability to poison the whole world through our industry and weapons. The power of overprivileged assholes to make irresponsibly destructive decisions is increasing because of technological development and brute politics. This makes continuing the old ways of politics, with unconstrained negative externalities, untenable. So, if we want to have civilization at all, we now must constrain our liars, thieves, rapists, and murderers. What are the alternatives?

Glad you're along for the ride. The driver can yammer all he wants, but the destination is what really matters.

Let the damn comic speak for itself.

You know, a appalled CEO first, grieving friend second :D

Let's just fly around and yell at everyone XD I'm sorry, I totally could see someone like McCafree doing some insane thing like this XD (gotta laugh to keep from crying...)

You list the important thing second in order to emphasize it... right?

"Let's just fly around and yell at everyone" pretty much summarizes the Star Wars Imperial leadership style.
