Well, by golly, the government should step in and... No. Wait. This was the government, right?
Although there are cameras in the 9 South wing where the convicted pedophile was being held at the Metropolitan Correctional Center, they are trained on the areas outside the cells and not inside, according to sources familiar with the setup there.
Wouldn't want to let this beauzeau think he was special just because he had the goods on fifty or sixty national-level bigshots, not to mention a few stars of stage and screen...
Pols who attended Sunday’s annual Dominican Day Parade in Manhattan demanded answers to the many questions surrounding Epstein’s Saturday morning death, which is being investigated by the FBI and the Justice Department.
"Yeah! We demand answers!"
"Something doesn’t smell right ‐ and it’s not his dead body," Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams said.
"Now that he's dead, we'll never get to the bottom of this, will we?"
Adams noted the July 23 incident in which the multimillionaire financier was found nearly unconscious in his cell with marks on his neck, as well as the blockbuster court papers that were released on Friday and contained the names of other men ‐ including former Maine Sen. George Mitchell and ex-New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson ‐ who allegedly slept with an Epstein teenage "sex slave."
"Guards! Guards! Somebody just tried to kill me! I've been unconscious! Look at the marks on my neck!"
"Yeah, yeah. We'll... ummm... investigate."

"Something is really troubling about that and I think it needs to be investigated extremely and very thoroughly to make sure there wasn’t any foul play," Adams said.
"Legume! My clarinet! I must get to the bottom of this!"
New York Attorney General Letitia James, who said she’s toured the MCC, said she found it "very difficult to understand how something like this could have happened."
"Yup. No idea."

was found dead Saturday did not conduct required checks on prisoners the previous night, according to a report.
Epstein died of a suspected suicide after being found unresponsive in his Manhattan Correctional Center cell where he was being held on sex trafficking charges. At approximately 6:30 a.m., Epstein was "found unresponsive in his cell in the Special Housing Unit from an apparent suicide," the Federal Bureau of Prisons said in a news release.

Staff conducted life-saving measures and Epstein was transported by ambulance to a hospital where he was pronounced dead.
He's dead, Jim!
according to the Federal Bureau of Prisons. Around 7:30 a.m., a gurney carrying a man who looked like Epstein was wheeled out of the jail and taken to NewYork-Presbyterian Lower Manhattan Hospital, the New York Post reported.

Epstein hanged himself while in solitary confinement. Three law enforcement sources confirmed the suicide to ABC News. NBC reported he was not on suicide watch.

"At the MCC, two jail guards are required to make separate checks on all prisoners every 30 minutes, but that procedure was not followed overnight, according to the source. In addition, every 15 minutes guards are required to make another check on prisoners who are on suicide watch," Rooters reports.

In July, Epstein was found nearly unconscious in his cell with injuries to his neck and was placed on suicide watch.

Attorney General William Barr has directed the FBI and Department of Justice inspector general to launch a full investigation into Epstein’s death.

’s trafficking scheme named two prominent Democrats as part of a group of men with whom she was forced to have sex, unsealed documents revealed Friday.

The more than 2,000 papers released by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York allege that Virginia Giuffre, 33, claimed in May 2016 that she was trafficked by Jeffrey Epstein to have sex with and give erotic massages to several politicians, foreign leaders, and businessmen, Fox News reported.

"There’s a whole bunch of them ‐ it’s just hard for me to remember," Giuffre said, according to the documents. "My whole life revolved around just pleasing these men and keeping Ghislaine and Jeffrey happy. Their whole lives revolved around sex."

The two Democrat politicians named in the allegations were former Sen. George Mitchell (ME) and former New Mexico governor and Clinton cabinet official Bill Richardson.

Mitchell, who is a former Senate majority leader and was later named special envoy to the Middle East by former President Obama, called the allegations "false" and denied he had ever met or had any contact with Giuffre, according to reports.

A spokesperson for Richardson also said the allegations against him were "completely false," adding that "Governor Richardson has never been to Mr. Epstein’s residence in the Virgin Islands. Governor Richardson has never met Ms. Giuffre," reports stated.

Giuffre’s lawyer, David Boies, said, "It took a great deal of courage and commitment for Virginia to file her lawsuit," according to NBC News.

Reports said Epstein was charged with sex trafficking-related charges last month. But on July 24, he was reportedly found "semi-conscious with marks on his neck" in an apparent suicide attempt. Epstein was placed on suicide watch following the incident.

#4 Bring indictments against the guards, supervisors, and chief for involuntary manslaughter. Mr. Flynn can tell you the process can be just as much the punishment as any finding. Do it 'pour encourager les autres'.

I'd consider encouraging someone to turn states evidence, but the fixers already know the other side has a death penalty.

#5 Additionally, Epstein was supposed to have a cellmate. But the person who was assigned to share a cell with Epstein was transferred on Friday before the 66-year-old's assassinated, according to the Post. It was not immediately clear why the cellmate was transferred or why no one else was assigned to room with Epstein.

Who in NYC made the call to transfer Epstein's cellmate? Trace it up the chain.
