And Bernie Madoff's probably going to die in prison. Here's the elephant in the room. Rich people stealing from poor people get nothing. Poor people stealing from rich people get much harsher sentences.Put it to you this way. Andrew Fastow at Enron got 6 years. He cost plenty of people retirement money and in some cases wiped out some employees retirement altogether.
Again, not saying this guy deserves a break but 4-12 years is stiff compared to corporate executive white collar crime.
I think the just way to fix this is to give rich 1%r people the same sentences as poor 99%r people, not the other way around.
