Do you agree with him being able to keep this money?!?

Bernie Madoff is accused of fleecing his clients out of billions, but he said Monday he shouldn't be forced into the poorhouse.
His lawyers are arguing that Madoff should be entitled to keep the $7 million apartment he's currently being held in while under house arrest and $62 million, including $45 million in municipal bonds.

I hope they take it all! He should be homeless. He robbed people of their life savings!

  • He needs to payback all the money and even if he has enough left over he should split the difference and pay more for damages. Anyone who makes money by stealing other peoples money deceptively doesn't deserve to be living large.

  • I think they should take it.

  • I don't know the whole situation. The market has completely crashed. If it is because of this or honest bad decisions, then no. If he stole the money and still has it, hell yes. Take it all away.

  • He needs to pay back the people he put in the poor house. Now he can see what happens when you lose everything. Like he's victims.

  • He deserves to pay for his crime, but doesn't own enough to cover all the money he took (and lost) of his investor's. Do we confiscate everything in his name and sell it? Will the proceeds get divided fairly among the victims?

    I think he should go to jail for a long time...and not the country club jail!

    But the real question is: What was the SEC doing all this time??

  • I agree strip him down to his tighty whities! He does not deserve the luxuries that he got by scamming so many people out of their well deserved retirement funds and so forth. Hes a crook and deserves to have nothing.

  • No! He should have to pay every red cent to everybody he shammed and be forced to work for a living at a real job like the rest of us. That is the best punishment for him. He should have a court appointed job and residence. I am thinking a tiny shack and being a sharecropper (even though that does not exsist anymore then maybe he'd respect people's hard work

  • They should take it all and give it to those he duped. Now those who invested with him are morons and many knew his scheme so it will be tough to find the morons that should get their money back from the scammers who should not get a dime.
