... has been sentenced to 150 years in prison. How unimaginative! He will no doubt live out his days in semi-luxury, with nobody to bother him. How much better it would have been if he had been stripped of all his possessions apart from one set of clothes, allowed no money, and put out on the street to beg for his living. Would have been fun to see him trying to beg from the same people he stole from.

Surely far better to make the punishment fit the crime.

Let me get this straight: 150 years for swindling rich investors? Why not just put him on death row?

All the while rapists, murderers, child molesters go free? Not sure I understand how punishment fits the crime.... Am I missing something?

There were hundreds of rich investors but the majority of people (according to NBC, CBS, FOX, etc.) that lost money were retirees who lost all of their life savings. One couple was reported to have commited dual suicide. THAT is murder as far as I am concerned. I ALSO would like all of the rapists, murders, and child molestors to get a minimum of 150 years!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Or worse.
