Bernie Madoff’s Sentence: Are We Getting Carried Away?

Obviously Bernie Madoff needs to go to jail. But, is the insanity of a 150 year prison sentence when killers often get less, lost on anyone but me? He plead guilty, right?

Stealing money from hundreds of rich people is jailable offense, no question. But to me, taking the life of someone’s mother, someone’s daughter is about a zillion times worse. And I’m not sure why stealing $500 billion – or whatever it was – is that much more serious of a crime than stealing $15,000. Stealing is stealing.
