I do think it’s really sad that Bernie Madoff’s eldest son committed suicide this weekend, especially since he left behind four children. What a disaster this whole scandal has turned out to be. The mastermind jailed for 150 years. A family humiliated. Investors defrauded of their life savings.
Here’s what I don’t understand. Madoff’s family members are still living lives of luxury. Bernie’s wife got away with several million dollars. Does that make any sense when many of their investors have nothing? Their sons were living in penthouses. Have you no shame? How do you think that money–which is other people’s money–got into your hands? It’s not yours. Give it back or at least have some decency to downscale.
