Well he's in jail now and though I truly despise this SOB there's not much else you can do to a man in a civilized world.
As somebody who's been locked up for more than a few hours - I can tell you for someone like Madoff the first few days or even months will be
excruciatingly painful. The man always had the best of the best. He lived in comfort and quiet - in jail and prison no matter how cushy you think it
is the fact is it's always noisy, it's either really hot or really cold and everything is hard and uncomfortable.
The food is the same everyday - remember your school lunch's ? Imagine the worst ones made with sour, stale, rancid out of date ingredients hours
ahead of time often with insects crawling though it and served luke warm if you're lucky. Every meal every day and you can't go home and get
something better later.
You want to cause trouble or just defend yourself - they'll lock you up in total darkness or with a 1500 Watt spotlight above your head 24 hours a
day until your eyes feel like their bleeding and you have to sleep with your arms over your eyes to take away the sting and they feed you the same
food blended all together and cut into from a loaf.
For a guy like Madoff every day will be torture. It doesn't matter how cushy everyone thinks his jail or prison is the fact is he has lost virtually
all privacy. He can't take a crap or shower with the expectation of privacy. They can and will come in and rouse you out of a deep sleep any time
they feel like shaking you down - to look for supposed contraband - which could be something as simple as a piece of bread you were saving for later
or one too many pictures or letters in your possession.
I could go on and on, but for those of you who think Madoff will have it cushy think again - he will have a heart attack because everyday will be
torture. So, be happy they put the bastard in jail - lets hope he stays awhile.
