The power of III

Summum ius summa iniuria--More law, less justice

Madoff's poison

...Continues to claim more victims, and will for generations.

Today in NYC, Mark Madoff, 46, committed suicide.

He supposedly found out of about his father's crime the day before the arrest.  His great bitterness and sense of betrayal only increased over time.  I can't imagine what he must have felt, his very name becoming synonymous with infamy and evil.  Actually it reminds me of Dr. Mudd, who treated John Wilkes Booth's leg during his flight from the assasination--his name became the inspiration for the phrase "his name is mud."

He chose to kill himself on the second anniversary of his father's arrest.

Today was also the end of the statute of limitations to make claims to Madoff's funds.  Lawsuits had been filed going after Mark's two young kids' trust funds earlier this week.

May Madoff's agony ever increase.
