Mad Madoff Can't Be Backdoor Man

1/1/2009 2:10 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

He's admitted to swindling investors out of $50 bil, so it's no surprise Bernie Madoff would want to be a total sneak when it comes to entrances and exits.

But the prince of Ponzi is finding that harder to do than he'd like. The New York Post reports Madoff has been trying to get into his Manhattan building through a boutique next door, because he's too embarrassed to go through the front lobby, where paparazzi and reporters have been hounding him. The store, however, isn't having it.

"We don't let him do it," says one William Wayne worker. "Why would we want that kind of person in our store?"

He should just kill himself and save everyone the court case. Lesser criminals have done it with more moral fibre than ponzi king Madoff.. Just sayin. lol.

He wants to hide? It's too late for that. There's nowhere for him to hide. This greedy food is only at the beginning of his suffering. What the public don't do, the press will. You don't steal money from some of the people he bilked and get away with it. He is going to wish for death.

I am too surprised that this greedy crook hasn't been assassinated by the people he bilked! Its amazing that greedy people just never have enough money. When enough, enough? Like that CEO (I think of Merrill Lynch) who bought the 39 million dollar apartment in New York City after receiving 25 million for two weeks of work? Madoff deserves any punishment he gets. Up to and including death! Greed is, after all, a deadly sin.

The only "chosen" people are the money managers and financial industry executives who have bribed and cajoled Congress and federal regulators into allowing them to operate outside of regulations and without transparency. as if they are more deserving and "trustworthy" than anyone else.

This guy is a blemish to society. We should bring back the old "tar and feathering" treatment for people like this on top of what his real punishment should be. He stole money from so many people it is ridiculous.

Why does he get to live in his spacious, ill-gotten apartment? People rot in jail for stealing much less than this guy has admitted to. Yes, if it were up to the mob, I'd vote for tar and feathering. Indeed, I wouldn't be surprised if it is a mob that gets him in the end.
