White collar prison is too good for Bernie Madoff.
Am I wrong for wanting this guy to spend the rest of his life locked up with rapists and murderers?
Usually when people steal money through in non-violent ways like this they are sent to white collar resort prison, but I want Madoff to go to federal pound me in the ass prison. His crimes were of such a scale, and were committed with such arrogant disregard for the people he was knowingly bankrupting that I think he belongs in the same place as the rest of the most despicable criminals in America.
After pleading guilty to the charges against him he said he was "Sorry and ashamed". Bullshit. You don't do something like he did if you care at all about the people you'll hurt in the process, and you can't adequately apologize to someone if your plan was to screw them from the very beginning. If he feels that way about anything he's only sorry that he got caught, and only ashamed that his big important businessman disguise was destroyed and the world saw him for the pathetic worm he really is.
Now I know the US justice system isn't supposed to be about any kind of revenge or payback, and they wouldn't send someone to a place where they'd probably be dead overnight. But it seems to me that the only way justice could even begin to be served here is if every night for the rest of his life he went to bed scared and wondering how he was going to make it through the next day.
