Editor's Note: American Morning's Tuesday viewers were glad to see Madoff sentenced and none cared how he would fare in jail.
- Nick: Why would anyone be worried about bernie after he ripped off so many people,who cares what is life would be like in prison. he did not care about the people he ripped off.
- Drew: Your interview with Larry Levine on how life in prison will be with Madoff I felt was pretty weak. Where were some of the harder questions, such as should he stake out the biggest guy in prison and start a fight...or should be become someones bitch in order to get protection. Larry Levine's insight in the prison was pretty weak.
- Julio: I just heard a "Prison Consultant" speaking on what Bernard Madoff should expect in prison. This guy is more of a con than anything else and should probably be returned to prison for his bogus consulting business. Although not impossible it is highly improbable that any harm will come to Bernard Madoff from other inmates as he will most likely be in protective custody or a form of it. An if the consultant want to argue the point, I too spent time behind bars a combined total of 11 years and 9 months in 3 different states. Shame of this so called Consultant for getting on National Televison and talking as if he were an authority in the matter subject. Are there murderes and rapist in prison? Of course, but I stand on my ground that Mr. Madoff will not be allowed to interact with most of the population. Federal Prison Officials will not just carelessly put Madoff in harms way and it would be ridiculous to think so unless you want attention or are coning people by means of fear.
Do you believe Mr. Madoff should receive special protection in jail because of the nature of his crimes? Comment here or follow the story.
The pastor supporting guns in church was poorly received, as most felt church was no place for guns.
- Gary: God and Guns. Just shows how some Christians have perverted the teachings of Jesus. Arent ministers supposed to be Christlike? I cant even imagine Jesus carrying a gun, concealed or otherwise. It is totally contrary to what he taught.
How would you feel in a church where everyone was openly carrying guns? With the recent shootings in churches, is this an appropriate alternative?
