Bernie Madoff Can’t Say Enough Good Things About Prison

Barbara Walters told ABC’s “Good Morning America” on Thursday that she interviewed Madoff for two hours at the prison in Butner, N.C., where he’s serving a 150-year sentence. No cameras were allowed in the prison. Walters said Madoff told her he thought about suicide before being sent to prison, but since he’s been there he no longer thinks about it. Walters quoted Madoff as saying: “I feel safer here (in prison) than outside. I have people to talk to, no decisions to make. I know I will die in prison. I lived the last 20 years of my life in fear. Now, I have no fear because I’m no longer in control.” [AP, earlier]

    At least use the correct "your." Fucking imbecile.

  16. It's nice to know that we've all contributed to the costs of Madoff's psychotherapy treatment (i.e., nirvana achieved via lifetime incarceration) via the legal system.
