The ex-chairman of Nasdaq makes Kenneth Lay look like a small-time crook, defrauding clients of $50bn. I expect he'll start suffering from 'Ernest Saunders Disease' as his trial approaches.

He Madoff with the loot.

With Bernie Madoff spending the rest of his life in prison, what do you think are the odds of him being done in by an inmate?
Will 2011 be it for the following?
Fidel Castro, Kim Jong-il, Dick Cheney, Margaret Thatcher, Billy Graham, Aretha Franklin, Ariel Sharon, Peter Falk, Elizabeth Taylor, Annette Funicello, Gerry Rafferty (RIP, gone right down the line to Heaven), Kirk Douglas, Zsa Zsa Gabor, James Garner, Jerry Lewis, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Sir Richard Attenborough, Dick Clark, Harlan Ellison, Michael Douglas (joker)

Madoff - if he lives long enough to be sentenced - will be in the country club that is federal prison for white collar criminals. He'll be fine.

White collar prisons are very lenient. Bernie Madoff's prison might be similar to a hotel room along with catered food every night. I would imagine it's not much different from those retirement homes that seniors are placed in.

There really is no such thing as white collar "country club" federal prisons.

With that said, Banshee Screams is right in that white collar criminals generally are placed in "nicer" facilities. White collar criminals generally are placed in minimum security federal prisons. The differences between these and higher level security facilities are these: the prison cells resemble dorm rooms more than actual prison cells. There are less prison guards roaming these facilities. White collar criminals have more freedom -- that is, they are not confined to their cells 23 hours a day.

It's Scream, not screams. Respect yer elders bitch. Anyway, I wouldn't mind if Bernie received the death penalty. Does anyone share the same thought? Wouldn't it set an example? Even if Bernie is never executed, it would make people think. The greedy minds would change their minds. Once people start changing their minds, the world will change too.

I think that sums it up.

Settle down, Beavis.

Anyway, I'd love it if Bernie were sent to a prison and get his ass brutally raped and killed by an inmate on death row with nothing to lose.

When you compare a US state level maximum security prison to the minimum security US federal facilities that people like Madoff are put in, the federal prison is a country club.

Comparatively speaking, you're right.

But to call Federal prison camps (e.g., federal minimum security prisons) "resorts" is still stretching it. At best, the federal minimum security places are like heavily guarded college dorms, but with none of the fun (no loose women, much yuckier food, etc.). Far from the myth that is "white collar club fed resort."

I'm against the death penalty on general principle but even I can acknowledge that in some cases it would constitute justice. That being said, to suggest that someone who steals money should be executed is really silly. I'm not trying to minimize the seriousness of Bernie's crime, just suggesting that capital punishment for a Ponzi scheme is ridiculous. The comparative luxury of the facilities that deal with less violent offenders has more to do with the company they keep than any attempt by the authorities to make things better for "white collar" inmates.

Jailed for 150 years, not eligible for parole until 2129.

He'll have to be Madoff strong stuff to get that far.

At the age of 71, I somehow think that a 150 year sentence is a tad excessive. Even 20 years would probably finish him off.

I wonder if his reaction to bring sentenced was like this?

What, you mean you wouldn't be completely and utterly shocked to the core if you were to find out that the above suggestion might not be entirely true?? No need to brace yourself for this earth shattering revelation then :birthday: :
