    I'll do you one better. Bernie Madoff, who is no doubt a scumbag, is getting more prison time than people who have killed, raped, assaulted, and molested COMBINED!

    It's all about the money. Money is more important than anything...including the lives of a single human. Where are our priorities?

    Madoff gets 150 years and the drunk driver who killed a police officer last year will get 8 years under a plea agreement.

    Its not just about the money though:

    Madoff screws some 114 investors (and investment groups) and gets 150 years behind bars...

    Franklin Raines (admittedly) cooks the Fannie Mae books and screws every taxpayer in the nation, sparking a ripple effect recession in the mortgage market, which in turn brings down half of wall street and all of its investors, and walks (after collecting millions in bonuses)...

    What's the difference?

    Franklin could bring a lot of political players down with him, while Madoff can't.

    I was thinking the same thing when I heard that. Not saying that he got too much time, because he wrecked a lot of lives - just saying that rapists and murders should never again see the sun or breathe fresh air.

    I'd bet his wife knew all about it so she should also be charged, instead of receiving a portion of the fortune.

    Broken victims of her husband's suspected Ponzi scheme are fighting for pennies on the dollar, but Ruth Madoff says $62 million she squirreled away is none of their business...
