My cousin was hit and killed by a drunk driver. All of Madoff's victims are still living. I'm pretty sure his wife and daughters, father, cousins, etc... would be glad to give all of the money they own to have him back.
Put one of your loved ones in place of my cousin and see if money is still all that important.
I don't doubt the pain and hurt that comes with a death because someone made a bad decision. I know. I lost a friend to drunk driving as well. But, the drunk driver, as mad as I was at him was extremely remorseful and he never intended to hurt anyone. Doesn't make it right, for sure, but his intent was not to hurt anyone. I know. He should have known about the possible consequences of his decision. I know. I agree.
But someone like Madoff had no conscience and intentionally set out to hurt people. And he had little remorse for doing so.
I can't stand people that intentionally go out to hurt people.
Melo made a bad decision, but I highly doubt he made that decision with the intent to hurt anyone. Compare that to someone who intentionally went out to hurt people.
It's clear to me which is worse, but we don't have to agree. Both are not ideal situations for anybody.
