    for people like Madoff, the best punishment is to impoverish them and force them to spend the rest of their years on earth working off what they took from other. Madoff is brilliant so he can use his intelligence to help enrich those he cheated

    as to DD-its a stupid law that should not exist in the first place
    got it
    as a former officer of the court, a former practicing attorney, you find that those who do engage in fraud should not be subjected to incarceration
    too twisted for those of us who reside in the real world

And he never saw a minute of jail time nor community center living - and he remains in Congress to this day.
    But of course. Why did you expect anything less than this?

    First, he's a minority. Second, he's a congressman. Third, he's a monitory congressman brought up before his congressional peers.

    You seriously expected some sort of consistent justice to be applied to this situation as if he were a rich white businessman? Perish the thought.

    Yes, yes. Not only excessive political correctness apply here, also the case that a thief being judged by a ban of thieves.

    My only concern is how he would take advantage of the sentence to simply make enough to sustain himself and not a penny more for those he stole from, all just to stay out of prison. In principle it's a neat idea, though fuzzy in the execution.

If D'Souza were seven years old his behavior would make sense. But he's an adult so he's just a scumbag. His character is seriously piss poor.

    madoff is currently enjoying superstar status while in prison
    doing taxes for many of the inmates
    should be a movie about someone who does such

    prison should be reserved for violent types

    working off their debt to society for scam artists like Madoff makes more sense. A guy with his intellect can LEGITIMATELY make 200-300 K a year. so have him do that and take 80% of it for the victims rather than spending 40K a year on him in prison

    why not have him work mainly for free while paying for his own food and housing?

    What would compel him to make 200-300k a year entirely for other people?
