Jon Hudson (3/18, Letters) doesn’t think Bernard Madoff’s victims should get their money back.
Doesn’t he realize that Mr. Madoff committed a heinous crime against the people he stole money from? They were robbed, just as surely as if he had stuck a gun in their ribs and stole from them. I do not see the comparison at all.
Many of the foreclosures are on houses that the people could not afford in the first place, or they had refinanced them to the point that they could not afford them. The stock market is always a risky business. The recession did not take the Madoff’s victims’ money. He did. That is why he is jail, and that is why everyone associated with him should be in jail.
