Justice for Bernie
on the sentencing of Bernie Madoff is enlightening.
In most cases the Federal white-collar prisons are easy time, decent accommodations for people who deserve an indecent life. Normally I wish they could spend time in a serious prison, mingle with serious criminals, receive a daily beating and reaming. But for Bernie, who worked his scam at country clubs, the country club prison will be exactly
what he deserves. Why? Because he won't meet any rich Jews in a serious prison, but he'll meet plenty in a country club prison.
"Madoff isn't going to be real popular," said Larry Levine, who served 10 years in federal prisons for securities fraud and narcotics trafficking and now advises convicts on surviving time behind bars. "All the guys there will have wives or parents who are losing their homes or their jobs or who can't send money to them anymore. Everybody's going to be blaming Bernie."
