    Bernard Madoff 'beaten up in jail'

    Bernard Madoff 'beaten up in jail'

    http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/new...cle7066903.ece


    Bernard Madoff, the multibillion-dollar investment fraudster, was reportedly beaten up in prison by a fellow inmate with a black belt in karate who inflicted serious injuries.
    The former Wall Street tycoon was allegedly attacked for the second time last December as he served the first months of a 150-year sentence for operating a $65 billion Ponzi scheme.
    After the attack, Madoff, 71, was transferred to a low-security medical centre, where he was treated for a broken nose, fractured ribs and cuts to his head and face, a prisoner in Butner, North Carolina, told The Wall Street Journal.
    At the time of the incident last year, the US Bureau of Prisons denied reports that he had been violently assaulted and said that the financier was being treated for high blood pressure and dizziness.
    The Wall Street Journal said that details of Madoff’s injuries could not be independently verified but said that two other unnamed people were able to confirm that the assault had taken place.



    A former inmate said that Madoff's dispute with a body-builder, who was jailed for drug offences, centred on money the assailant thought he was owed by the trader.
    Traci Billingsley, a Bureau of Prisons spokeswoman, said: “In December he told staff he was not assaulted, and an investigation was completed following his statements, which corroborated his statements. Not one inmate has told staff he was assaulted.”
    The former inmate, who was in prison for drug charges, also offered an insight into Madoff’s life in jail. Apparently he spends much of his free time in the prison library and often watches films including Lethal Weapon.
    The witness also claimed that Madoff had given him financial advice during conversations in the library. He said Madoff had advised him to diversify his share portfolio, suggesting that he invest in funds that track the market as a whole, “where my money would be on all the stocks instead of putting my eggs In one basket”.
    The ex-convict said that Madoff socialised with Carmine "The Snake" Persico, the reputed boss of the Colombo crime family, and John Mancini, a former pharmacist from New York, who was convicted for selling about five million illegal pain-killing tablets.

    Oh dear ,oh dear. His fortunes really have taken a turn for the worse and he probably won't be getting much sympathy either.

    Really could not have happened to a nicer person, i hope that he gets a daily thrashing for the rest of his natrual life, Madoff must have single handed caused more misery and poverty than any other person in history ..

    There must be at least one of his former investors that has looked into having Madoff whacked while in prison. I don't think that he will die of natural causes.

    I hope he and his family sue the Government and collect millions. He has an absolute right to be protected from harm while in custody. This is even more stupid given his age and the fact he is no longer a danger to anyone if he were released.

    Being wacked by another inmate , whilst in prison, is natural causes, ain't it ?

    Bernie pleaded guilty to get the government to give him physical protection from the people he ripped off. It would be ironic if one of his victims has ended up in the same cell.

    Come on Bernie squeal like a pig.

    The justice system for you.

    Peidophile says should i be a fraudster? Na i could end up doing 150 years for that.

    Now should i continue doing horrific acts to children? Yes i might end up doing 2 weeks comunity service.

    But onto the subject, I don't really like hearing things like this unless its against rapists, peidophiles etc. But this guy is 72 years of age, Yes a 72 year old arsehole but still.


    P.s Guy who stole 100 clocks, is looking at doing a considerable amount of TIME behind bars.

    Yes, prison is the punishment and at 72 he must now be going through a night-mare . Probably some of the people on the outside whom he up-set will be making sure his life is not worth living. Still he must have had some knowledge of prison systems in america and to do what he did was pretty fukin stupid.

    Fuzzy logic , so you are saying that the older you get the punishment should be reduced,

    So at 80 years old you can commit murder and walk,

    He is a cnut, he new what he was doing, fck the Jew

    If he ripped you off you might have a different opinion

    I agree with the sentence, I just don't get how a peidophile manages to serve less time.
