It looks like Jeffrey Epstein is roasting in hell much quicker than most of us expected.
This is just terrible. After the system robbed the victims of justice, it looked like it was going to make up for it. Instead, he gets off by committing suicide. Allegedly.
That Jeffrey Epstein could commit suicide after being on suicide watch defies belief. There are many powerful men who wanted him dead, and their secrets to die with him. Epstein epitomized the sickness in the souls of so many men. #ToxicMasculinity— Tony Schwartz (@tonyschwartz) August 10, 2019
Yeah. It really does make you wonder.
I have no idea how Epstein committed suicide while under suicide watch. There needs to be a thorough investigation. More importantly, I’m saddened for all the people who will be denied answers, explanations, and justice.— Marc Lamont Hill (@marclamonthill) August 10, 2019
BREAKING: Jeffrey Epstein's suicide ends the criminal case against him because no one else was charged in the indictment— BNL NEWS (@BreakingNLive) August 10, 2019
Multiple sources I’ve interviewed for my Epstein reporting stress this is not the end of the story. Victims deserve justice. Focus now turns to Maxwell. And how Epstein was allowed to commit suicide (if it was a suicide and not a hit...)— Gabriel Sherman (@gabrielsherman) August 10, 2019
And a trove of documents from his trial was just released. Coincidence? Sure.
Former prosecutors think it’s very odd.
I've been in touch with a dozen-ish current/former prosecutors today. Many commonalities in their responses to #Epstein death, the first of which is this: Why so quick to declare it a suicide? Why not just say he's dead, appears to be by hanging, we're investigating? Very odd.— John Heilemann (@jheil) August 10, 2019
Apparently he had been taken off suicide watch:
NEW YORK (AP) — Jeffrey Epstein had been taken off suicide watch before he killed himself, a person familiar with the matter says.— Mike Balsamo (@MikeBalsamo1) August 10, 2019
Here’s the details on Epstein’s suicide watch:— Shimon Prokupecz (@ShimonPro) August 10, 2019
He was placed on suicide watch when he was found with marks on his neck on July 23, daily psychological assessments were conducted on him.
End of July psychologists with the Bureau of Prisons took him off suicide watch. @evanperez
Rosenstein doesn’t think it’s odd:
Pedophiles facing federal criminal charges are at high risk for suicide. It happened in several of my Maryland cases when defendants were released on bail. Detained pedophiles require special attention. Stopping people from harming themselves is difficult. https://t.co/YK4buPXmR9— Rod Rosenstein (@RodRosenstein) August 10, 2019
Interesting. I guess it makes sense that he would kill himself. Any pedophile that did what he did should want to wipe themselves off the face of this earth. But it IS terribly convenient given that he had so many connections…
