So, turns out hes not being sent to an "undisclosed prison", and will actually go to jail! this came to me as a surprise. I figured he would have came in the front door and walked out the back into a luxury hotel or something.

Not that he will have the treatment he deserves anyway. The article says he will be living in a "dorm-style" house.

hopefully he lives a long time in there

I personally don't hope he lives a long time. I'm not wishing for his death or anything, but do you know how much money it costs taxpayers to maintain prisons and the prisoners?

I believe Madoff has cost people enough money already. Don't forget the huge bill for prosecuting him, seizing property, locating assets, etc -- none of that comes cheap.

As far as I'm concerned, he bilked billions of dollars from innocent people and the longer he lives, the more the amount of money that goes out the window.

ahaha, definitely a good way to look at it. He'll leech from our economy for the rest of his life. I wonder how he had planned to spend all that money...?
