There are more than a few people upset that serial pedophile and accused sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein is now dead.
That’s because they believe he either took the easy way out — suicide — or was shown the easy way out and ‘suicided’ so to speak.
Whatever the case, one thing is for sure: If you’re someone who used to have some power and influence with the global elite because you were providing them with a “service” that wasn’t legal, wasn’t moral, and could have landed them in jail alongside you, then you become an expendable non-asset.
And you can be ‘gotten to’ even inside what is being described as a very well-guarded prison facility not known for providing ‘opportunities’ for people to kill themselves.
According to various reports, there was a potential breakdown in guard coverage, so to speak, but also some other shenanigans. For example, according to The Epoch Times, guards who were assigned to check on Epstein’s cell, among others in his building, were working “extreme overtime shifts” to compensate for staffing shortages the morning he allegedly killed himself.
Also, the news site noted, there was no surveillance footage of his cell or the surrounding area, which, of course, is not standard and highly suspicious in and of itself.
Someone familiar with the operation of the Metropolitan Correctional Center’s Special Housing Unit, where Epstein was housed, told The Associated Press that one guard assigned there was working his fifth straight overtime shift. Another was working mandatory overtime.
And, wouldn’t you know it, “the staff at the facility failed to follow protocols on the day” Epstein died, The Epoch Times reported.
The source of these details, who was not authorized to speak on the record, told Reuters that Epstein was found “hanging by his neck.”
But wait. According to a former inmate who spoke to the New York Post, there is “no way” that he could have committed suicide because the facility is too well-guarded and monitored.
Even, apparently, if guards are working some OT. “There’s no way that man could have killed himself. I’ve done too much time in those units. It’s an impossibility,” the former inmate told the paper.

‘Something doesn’t smell right’
There’s more. Taking into consideration that, okay, perhaps guards were tired, or distracted, or shorthanded, there still isn’t any way for Epstein to have hung himself, the former inmate said.
“Between the floor and the ceiling is like eight or nine feet. There’s no way for you to connect to anything,” he added. “You have sheets, but they’re paper level, not strong enough. He was 200 pounds — it would never happen,” the inmate said.
Further, “When you’re on suicide watch, they put you in this white smock, a straight jacket. They know a person cannot be injurious to themselves. The clothing they give you is a jump-in uniform. Everything is a dark brown color.”
Another oddity. According to RedState, Epstein’s cellmate, according to “a person familiar with the matter,” told The Washington Post on condition of anonymity that he was transferred out on Friday, just hours before Epstein’s death.
What are the chances?
Also, the same source said that guards had not checked on Epstein for several hours — surprise! — and that he had also been removed from the suicide watch list.
Guess who else isn’t buying all of this? Some New York officials.
“Something doesn’t smell right — and it’s not his dead body,” said Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams, who has presumably seen his share of how ‘things work’ in his district and throughout New York City.
It should also be noted that Epstein’s untimely death comes as the first reports implicating former Democratic politicians like Maine Sen. George Mitchell and ex-New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson as sleeping with a “sex slave” came out last week.
But hey. Nothing to see here.
