Madoff earns some prison yard ‘cred’

Seriously, I’m surprised Bernard Madoff hasn’t gotten shanked yet. He did, however, get into a prison yard scuffle with another inmate who disagreed with the great swindler’s investment advice. From NYPost:

The shouting match got so heated that the inmate pushed Madoff, who shoved back harder with both hands, causing his attacker to stumble.

As the attacker tried to stand up straight, Madoff hovered over him red-faced and glaring, eyewitnesses said.

The stunned attacker went chicken and took off—allowing Madoff to collect some “cred” among his fellow prisoners.

As Jay Firestone points out: “it appears Bernie Madoff has learned a valuable prison lesson about property. Either own or be owned.”
