Is Bernie Madoff Continuing to Live in Luxury Absurd?

6 03 2009

A 50 billion dollar ponzi scheme. There are so many issues that can be considered ABSURD that it boggles the mind.

  • It’s absurd his company was able to get away with this for so many years.
  • It’s absurd that the US Justice system would allow Bernie to continue to live in his life of luxury after being caught.
  • It’s absurd that Bernie’s attorney has a possible conflict of interest but has continued to represent the alleged criminal.
  • It’s absurd Bernie has only been charged with a single crime so far.
  • It’s absurd that Bernie filed to protect over 50 million dollars in personal assets he got as part of his crimes.


This will continue to be a case that will test the nation’s resolve into what seems like an absurd and almost bizarre miscarriage of justice. Can we change the law to protect financial victims better and prosecute perps better?

I can’t understand it because I’m not a lawyer. But I just saw in Yahoo news that he is saying his 7 million dollar pad here and 62 million bucks in additional assets are in his wife’s name and not legally subject to forfeture. I think he has to prove those assets are not the result of his criminal fraud but it makes me sick thinking about it. He SHOULD be in Rikers or the Tombs. In any other country he would be.
