(Tea Party PAC) – Over the weekend, sex trafficker and all around disgusting human being, Jeffrey Epstein committed suicide in his prison cell, which wasn’t shocking to those of us who understood the depth of the connections this man had with some of the most powerful men and women on the planet.
However, what is shocking is that, despite several previous suicide attempts, the man was taken off of suicide watch, a move that shocked a former prison warden who weighed in on the situation.
Epstein, a convicted pedophile who befriended numerous politicians and celebrities over the years, was found unresponsive in his cell around 6:30 a.m. at the Metropolitan Correctional Center from “an apparent suicide,” the Department of Justice said.
He was pronounced dead at a hospital.
On July 23, the 66-year-old was found unconscious with marks on his neck. He was put on suicide watch for six days before being returned to his cell in a high-security part of the jail, the New York Times reported.
Cameron Lindsay, an ex-warden who worked at three federal prisons, said in an interview with NBC News:
For them to pull him off suicide watch is shocking. For someone this high-profile, with these allegations and this many victims, who has had a suicide attempt in the last few weeks, you can take absolutely no chances. You leave him on suicide watch until he’s out of there.
It’s too early to say what I think should happen, but if this did occur as we believe that it did, some staff are going to have some hard questions to answer.
The Department of Justice’s inspector general and the FBI immediately launched probes as politicians, law enforcement officials, and alleged victims expressed shock that Epstein could take his own life.
Attorney General William Barr said in a statement:
I was appalled to learn that Jeffrey Epstein was found dead early this morning from an apparent suicide while in federal custody. Mr. Epstein’s death raises serious questions that must be answered. In addition to the FBI’s investigation, I have consulted with the Inspector General who is opening an investigation into the circumstances of Mr. Epstein’s death.
You don’t have to be a card carrying member of the tinfoil hat brigade to think that something fishy is going on with the whole mess surrounding Epstein. This guy had some very powerful clientle for his deplorable sex slave business and there’s no doubt a lot of these people wanted Epstein to take his last breath before he could spill the beans about their involvement in his lolita ring.
Does that necessarily mean he was murdered or coerced somehow into killing himself? Not exactly. In fact, it’s pretty common place for folks like Epstein — pedophiles — who are facing conviction to kill themselves rather than face the horrors of prison, which as we all know, are not fun places to be for child molesters.
However, the timing of everything, not to mention the bad decision making of taking him off suicide watch are suspect to say the least. Let’s hope some sort of investigation is conducted, ethically, that will enable us to have closure over what really happened.
