#1 Sleeping guards don't want cameras working. Tightly integrated circuits prevent a camera from being degraded unless a good electronics person purposely damages a capacitor or resistor or someone spins the lense out of focus, etc. 30+ days of video can be stored or more on commercial GeoVision Systems, depending on the hard drive size (500 meg 30 days or 1 terabyte much longer video archive?). Was the video quality poor before Epstein occupied the cell or during the brief two weeks he was there? Any of thousands of security camera techs/hnstallers can look at the above in a few minutes and deliver a verdict.

#3 Some questions, feel free to add
1) When did the camera go down?
2) Did any other hundreds to thousand cameras in the complex went down at that time?
3) How reliable were these two cameras before?

#5 Not to worry about this, we have our best man on it, Inspector Clouseau, heading up a crack FBI team.

#6 Looks a little damaged. Let's open it up and check it out. WHACK. Hm, rather resistant, give it another one, Jim. WHACK. SHATTER. That's better - let's see, yup not looking good. Better check the solder connections on these chips. Hand me that cold chisel.

#7 security footage from at least one camera near Epstein’s cell was deemed unusable by authorities.

Who are these authorities ?

#10 Too many moving parts to this to think it won’t seep out. He was murdered to protect the blackmail honey trap he was running for a foreign power....far too many suspicious events for a suicide and only huge national security motives would force these clown car level Coincidences......

#12 Was Epstein a Mossad asset?

If I had Epstein's money, I wouldn't be running a brothel for a bunch of international movers and shakers. He and Maxwell must have had a reason, a motivation. What was it ?

#13 Clearly he was mercenary. No loyalties and no ties. Any agency could have used him and he could have run afoul of any agency.

#14 Other than Prince Andrew, interesting how few of his clients and former associates appear to have surfaced.

#15 Motivation: sick motherf---er. Perv, psychopath, voyeur, fantasies about dominating others utterly (the whole "master/slave" BS), messianic delusions (cf. the weird fantasy about "seeding the world," etc).

There are probably tens of thousands such characters scurrying around, unbeknownst to their neighbors and colleagues.

Means: blackmail, extortion, repeated again and again. Like any good manipulator, he and Maxwell instantly spotted their marks' weaknesses and what those marks wanted; maneuvered them into positions of dependence; and then exploited them with nasty and vicious threats of violence, exposure, ruin.

These, too, are common traits, found in every garden-variety hustler and pimp (and not a few politicians and business execs).

Opportunity: an endless supply of weak, vulnerable (what used to be called "wayward") young girls sourced from the usual places + a smaller but still quite large supply of wealthy older men, drawn from transatlantic power circles, especially Manhattan, gulled by their lust, vanity and probably boredom into playing along with a boontime companion.

It's this last quality that puts Epstein in a league of his own.

No one is paying nearly enough attention to the man's early days, when he went from college dropout and failed nudnik-on-the-trading-desk to Friend to Bear Stearns Managing Directors and phony Master of the Universe.

That Wall Street connection is the key to this man's bizarre career.

Wall Street runs on personal relationships between the money guys - which E. pretended to be (though never actually was in any meaningful sense at all - and the sources of their money: billionaires and CEOs (Wexner: check), wealthy Old Money (Andrew: check), politicians seekign to score big money or young girls or both (Clinton and his "Foundation,", Richardson, Mitchell, et al.: check), and other Wall Streeters (cf. the Bear Stearns execs: check).

Follow the money. Find out which money guys are in those videos.

That's it! I'm locking both doors tonight.
