    I didn't lose any. Does that mean I don't get an opinion?

    Maximum security only means that citizens are safe from the criminals inside. I'm surprised he wasn't put in a minimum security prison.

    Does Canada and Switzerland have a culture immersed in a cowboy/gangster mentality? Are these other nations famous for their Capones and Billy the Kids? Hollywood has spent the last 80 years grorifying their criminal violence and alpha male status. There is a certain attitude America has that others do not have. We tend to have egos that need "defended" and this places Americans in a position of more individualism not seen in other places. Our military is the most powerful in history and we dictate the mood of the globe. We like our sports violent (NFL) and our music aggresive (Rock, Rap).

    I believe this relates directly towards our higher crime rate.
    I think that's a weak correlation. It certain does contribute to our culture, but you fall prey to making a huge generalization on the American population. We have just as many subcultures that are not aggressive and not egocentric.

    Replace Madoff with an innocent convict and tell me you think its ok to beat people up.

    Prison is supposed to be the punishment, not getting beat up in prison.
    He is supposed to serve time and no where in sentence does it include getting beat up or anything else of that sort.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    I understand that can be nice for people to be further punished for their crimes but that is not what prison is for.

    It's part of the reason recidivism is so high for many crimes.

    Someone in there is innocent and has be raped, so it's at least true for a small minority that they have been abused for no reason at all.
