    Regardless of his sentence, it can never replace all the billions all the trust all the lives he stole from so many people. Did you know that Elie Wiesel was one of his many victims? His foundation, The Elie Wiesel Foundation for Humanity, was completely ruined. I hope they go after all the other financial types who preyed on people.

    Damn, i had heard if he plead the guilty plea, they would have no way of getting the information out on where he hid the money...

    surely he did not spend the 50 billion or even a tenth of it, if the 50 billion is a bloated figure...?

    Very true. Funny thing about the Madoff Scam is that its fuel to the fires for the anti-semites; however, most of Madoff's victims were Jews. Go figure!:eusa_eh:

    What I heard is that this was an open plea. The DA didnt make any offer to him.

    A fool and his money is soon parted, If it is not in your pockett its at risk (401s) can't trust anyone with your money to include your goverment and especialy other people.. Best answer earn it and keep it...You know Bernie didn't force these people to give them money it was there own choice and the real reason they are upset.
    Don't get me wrong he is a scumbag and should rot in jail.

    This is a serious question.

    Should people like this be executed?

    Not unless you can prove what he did caused someone's death. It would be a great aid to prevent recidivism.:lol:

    Otherwise, lock them up for life in a normal prison, no country club shit for this guy.

    PT Barnum was right was right about a sucker being born every minute. Today he could add there are two con men born every minute in our financial families and they are covered too often by the benign neglect of those in charge or their willing compliance.

    The fact that he has been getting away with this for about 30 years is what truly amazes me.:eek:
