Bernie Madoff was sentenced to 150 years in federal prison for running a fraudalent investment scheme that bilked thousands out of billions. Or maybe even millions out of billions. His greed ruined lives, and at least one person killed himself over the loss. He wasn’t alone, but so far he has refused to implicate anyone else in the crime. Since it’s been going on since the early 1990s, I’d guess that someone else knew about it along the way. Or someones. Since he was audited, I’d guess that bribery might have been involved. Those people should be caught, tried, convicted, and sent to prison for a long time. In fact, any time that Madoff (who is in his 70s) can’t serve should be tacked on to the other crook’s time.
OK, maybe that’s a bit extreme, but there should be plenty of prison time handed out to anyone who took part in this in anyway.
In other, less enlightened, societies, he’d be executed. He’s lucky that he’s going to spend the rest of his worthless life in prison.
