now i've heard everything. if i get laid off, i now know exactly what industry i'll migrate to. i'll commit a crime (because i'm a low-life scuzball) get convicted and then when i get out i can make a living counseling other low-life scuzballs on what they can expect in jail (like nobody on the outside has cable tv) and i'll become a multi-millionaire. God bless america!

An insight into our society! A man OJ Simpson either kills two people, in the first person, or he has them murdered by proxy. A trial ensues, where the American justice system is made a mockery of, inept counsel ( prosecutors ), wannabe a TV star judge ( Ito ). The result after one year in the court system ....---he WALKS! Very few people outside of the immediate family and friends, and at least one prosecutor, really care.

Fast forward fifteen years. An aging Bernie Madoff rips off numerous folks, over a fiteen year period, of a large part, if not all of their savings. Buyer beware---Jesus said " stand clear of the money changers" . It then became ultimately important that Madoff be given 150 years in prison, and if the death penalty was available in his case, I am quite convinced it might have been administered.
Quite a parable on what we view and hold fast to as being important in our society. Yes Madoff deserves jail time, but overkill for the almighty dollar does not greatly help our American justice system, nor strengthen our moral conscience!

Hey, smallfish, you have an interesting perspective, but I believe it too simplistic. O.J. used race, successfully, in his first trial. He was lucky, but his luck ran out when he went to Vegas, so he too is rotting, thankfully.

Madoff will be dead within a year from now as he will certainly be shanked by someone seeking to make a name for himself. Madoff will be treated no better than a pedophile.

His jail term was mandated by the countless victims. If someone killes someone they get 30 years. If they kill two people they get life. See how it works?

Okay, let me get this straight the value on human life is 30 years, while the value on monetary theft is 150 years. Oh by the way some murderers only get 5-7, and some, a few get off scot free. You make my point as well as I do--Thanks!

OJ didn't use race, race used OJ. To say it is OK to overlook a crime in a peremptory manner that the crook will eventually messup and get caught later--down the line, is like waiting for rain after the game is already past 4 1/2 innings. It may happen but it is irrelevant. Oh by the way white collar crooks ( Madoff ) don't go to " shank " prisons. They go to prison with other white collar crooks.

" Joe " don't attribute statements you apparently understand as being in accordance with your racist diatribe. Learning to read and comprehend will go a long way toward greater understanding on your part. OJ may have gone to jail for Brenwood if he were a white man. But by the same token Madoff would not have been allowed to rip people off for fifteen years if he were black. Our criminal justice system is but a mirror of our morays and values. That mirror, as is some peoples minds, has become clouded by race, ethnicity, political correctness, and above all by the almight dollar. If a serial killer were right out in the open killing folks for fifteen years, as was Madoff in his ponzi schemes, I seriously doubt he would have succeeded for so long. Madoff was not the only person who hugely profited from his nefarious theft. Again money ruled for fifteen years.

Obviously you can't recognize that you are a racist and anti-semite.
This from the person who said, " send all negroes and jews to jail". Minorities have been mistreated in this country for centuries in part because of slanderous communication such as yours being attributed to other sources. If you believe something say it in the light of day. I think others who read these blogs ( comments ) can readily acknowledge who made racist, antisemite comments. Again you cloud the issue!

This kind of thinking allows our society to incarerate young black males at an alarming, disproportionate rate, almost 8%, 11 times their white counterparts, and believe it is OK! Of all men on death row, 37% are black. Societal misjudgement does not end with a money changer in New York, it rather extends and permeates all who fall in its pervue.

That he sucked thousands with his schemes is sad...that it included an ass like Senator Frank Lautenberg of New Jersey is priceless.
