Who could be worse than Madoff?

I wonder, "Why would this guy Madoff, who jilted people via a voluntary choice, be more worthy of condemnation than American Presidents, who routinely kill, enslave, and steal from people using coercion and the threat of violence?" Seriously, if Madoff deserves to be imprisoned and tortured, certainly someone who kills a family he’s never met soon after his first day in office deserves similar punishment, no? Interestingly, I’m not the only person who wonders about this aloud . . . .
