“The Department can confirm that Mr. Epstein was placed on suicide watch in July,” Justice Department official Stephen E. Boyd wrote. “Mr. Epstein was later removed from suicide watch after being evaluated by a doctoral-level psychologist who determined that a suicide watch was no longer warranted.”
Epstein was found unresponsive in his cell at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan, N.Y., on Aug. 10, as he awaited trial on federal sex trafficking charges involving underage girls. He had been placed on suicide watch weeks earlier, on July 23, after he was found on the floor of his cell with bruises around his neck.
Here’s the thing, Epstein knew he was going down fast and hard.
He knew that he was going to be convicted because he knows how much evidence there is; it’s everywhere. Also, he knew that if he were to go to federal prison for the rest of his life, he would likely be killed while in prison because prisoners hate pedophiles.
Besides the questions over if Epstein should have been on suicide watch, reports have surfaced regarding abnormalities in how he was observed, including one saying guards in Epstein’s unit fell asleep and failed to check on him for roughly three hours during the time when he is believed to have hanged himself.
Barr said he was “appalled” and “angry” over the circumstances surrounding Epstein’s death and directed the FBI and the Justice Department Inspector General to investigate the suicide.
It’s not difficult to understand why the attorney general is so angry about the whole situation. After all, Epstein should have been under a very close watch and it is absurd that he was removed from suicide watch.
I’d like to know what kind of psychologist removed Epstein from the suicide watch after he had so recently tried to commit suicide and how they could sleep at night knowing that he is now dead.
