Ex-stockbroker caught in halfway house!
Oh, the humanity! The Pee Dee has its knickers in a twist because the evil scammer Frank Gruttadauria was sent to a halfway house, and he got a job! Prosecutor Bill Mason said that he was "working a scam on the federal prison system."
Uh, no. This is what often happens with non-violent offenders. They have to make room for more drug dealers. The Feds didn't think he was special, not like James Traficant or anything. How would they know not to let him out?
Now don't get me wrong; I think that Frank should rot in hell. But tell me, how does keeping him in the can help anyone? I'm sure that working for $7 an hour is punishment enough for such a high roller. And he'll be doing it for his next 50 incarnations before he pays back all the people he defrauded. Since we can't sell him into indentured servitude, letting him work is the least we can do for the victims.
I suspect the real outrage is because he's had conjugal visits with his ex. Far better that he fire the surgeon general in some dank cell, with a female guard spying on him and pressing charges, eh?
