He's a POS and good riddance, full stop.

But to this day, I have a hard time having sympathy for the dumb/greedy victims. On some level, everyone who invested with this guy was at best colossally stupid and at worst as criminally inclined as he was. Or they foolishly put their trust in a close associate who fits one of those descriptions.

Read up on the victims. The nurse who lost $7M? Well, she never had $7M, she had 4.5 when she started. The other 2.5 was fake Bernie bucks. Who, at age 60, gives every penny to someone they never heard of doing something they don't understand, because their Uncle said to? Who at age 60 with $4M to their name has a mortgage they have to pay? And then while the poor lady is reduced to cleaning houses, she decides recovering her initial investment of several $M isn't good enough - so she sues the trustee for the entire recovery effort for using a formula that didn't try to make her whole including the fake gains.

Sorry, that picture doesn't all add up in terms of victimhood. Sounds more like someone still trying to get a leg up on everyone else, fellow victims included, by any means necessary.

When you scratch the surface on the whole thing, it all just looks like dishonor among thieves.

Funny things is, he was just doing the same thing the government does with your Social Security money.

Bernie Madoff rode a modded GSXR 1000 as a senior citizen? SOmething seems off with that.

The FED does the same thing. So does Social Security.

The line of people waiting to piss on his grave runs out the cemetery gates, and around the block.

Not a surprise he was well liked. A good con man is always highly likeable. That's why they get away with it. He probably died with a cell full of cigarettes he ripped off from the other inmates.

He seemingly gave a guarantee to investors that is something which absolutely can not be guaranteed, ever.

The fools bought his story hook, line and sinker. If it's too good to be true, and you fall for it, no surprise how it ended up. A story as old as the invention of money. Those who do not understand history are condemned to repeat it.

Kidney failure imagine that. When your hearts beating 200 bpm for years on end while running a ponzi scheme there comes a point you beg the doctor for the drip - at the end

Yeah, he was a mega crook. But who give 1 man their entire life's savings? How could you give one investor over 20% on any one scheme. Even 20% is pushing it.

Bernie actually said it was easy to do because people were greedy.

Probably bought it with the thought of out running the cops.

Greed had everything to do with everyone involved...more,more, more I gotta have more. Everyone involved already had money & it's not like he dealt with average Joe"s you had to know someone to hook up with him & meet certain financial criteria to be considered as an investor. He had such a reputation it was like "Please take my money"

In all seriousness, he could have bought the bike as a trophy. Ben Affleck supposedly (if my memory serves correct) bought a race-proven Yamaha R7. That was a bike that was unobtainable for anyone without a proven on-track record. I don't think it's ever moved under it's own power since he bought it.
