    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.
    Well said.

    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
    TD, for decades, he operated a successful Ponzi Scheme. That is where his brilliance lies, being a smooth talking criminal.
    A person familiar with the situation said investigators believe Mr. Madoff initially had a trading strategy that failed, and that he had made very few, if any, stock or options trades for clients over the years. Instead, the operation consisted of taking money in from new clients and paying it out to existing clients, said people familiar with the matter.

    So I disagree. Prison is a fine place for him.

    This is the important stuff. We canít get lost in discrimination. We canít get lost in B.S. We canít get lost tearing each other down. I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.

    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
    hell no
    he did the crime
    make him pay

    D'Souza: "Yup, it certainly appears that way."
    Kelly: "But wouldn't you say that you were being unfairly targeted?"
    D'Souza: "Kelly, I don't know, maybe I was, maybe I wasn't, but let's not try to change the subject. The point is I broke the law and I'm paying the price for it. That's it."
    Kelly: "Yes, but-"
    D'Souza: "Kelly, there is no 'but.' I knew what I did was illegal and I got busted. That's it. Here's the thing you really need to remember here: if I hadn't committed a crime, I wouldn't be here right now."
    Kelly: "But the prosecutor-"
    D'Souza: "Kelly, just stop. Let me reiterate: If I hadn't committed this crime, I'd be home right now binging on Orange is the New Black, because I have absolutely terrible taste in television."
    Kelly: "......"
    D'Souza: "......"
    Kelly: "Um..."
    D'Souza: "Yyyyup."
    Kelly: "Okay, um...Dinesh D'Souza, everybody. We'll return after these messages."
    It really is a terrible show though.

    I always find it interesting the liberals bend over backwards to excuse violent criminals but want to waste expensive jail space on people who aren't physically hurting others

    We'll have to agree to disagree. He has nothing to offer to society in the manner which you have suggested. No skills to turn towards the public good.

    What the authorities have recovered in terms of "his" assets, can't make everyone whole again. Including charities and foundations, so I'm good with him being locked up.
