(Tea Party 247) – There is hardly anything believable about the death of disgraced billionaire Jeffrey Epstein, who is said to have committed suicide in his cell at the Manhattan Metropolitan Correctional Center on Saturday morning.
A former inmate, who spent several months in the prison’s notorious 9 South special housing unit for high-profile prisoners, told the New York Post that it would have been, in his words, “impossible” for Epstein to have taken his own life in that cell.
“There’s no way that man could have killed himself. I’ve done too much time in those units. It’s an impossibility,” said the former inmate, adding “Between the floor and the ceiling is like eight or nine feet. There’s no way for you to connect to anything.”
“You have sheets, but they’re paper level, not strong enough. He was 200 pounds — it would never happen.”
The unnamed former inmate says that when a prisoner is on suicide watch, which Epstein was supposed to have been on, they are placed in a straight jacket so that “a person cannot be injurious to themselves.”
However, we have also been told that Epstein was taken off suicide watch. This was in spite of the fact that he was found on the floor of his prison cell with injuries to his neck just three weeks ago.
What’s more, Reuters has reported that two jail guards, who had been required to check on the prisoners every 30 minutes (which would have been every 15 minutes for suicide watch), failed to follow protocol the night that Epstein supposedly took his own life.
Even if the guards hadn’t checked up on Epstein, however, it would have been impossible for him to inflict any harm on himself, as this former inmate said.
“They don’t give you enough in there that could successfully create an instrument of death,” he explained. “You want to write a letter, they give you rubber pens and maybe once a week a piece of paper,” adding that there’s nothing hard or made of metal provided.
He also described the miserable conditions of the prison.
It’s like you’re an animal and you’ve been brought into a kennel. A guy like Jeffrey, it’s like, “Holy sh-t.”
I told my parents not to come there. God wasn’t in the building.
I’ve had some heavy incidents in the building. What happened is permanent.
Some of the guards are on a major power trip. They know guys there are suffering. They know something the rest of the world hasn’t seen, that a place like this exists in this country, and they get off on it.
If the guards see that the guy is breaking, they’re going to help you break. –New York Post
“But it’s my firm belief that Jeffrey Epstein did not commit suicide. It just didn’t happen,” he concluded.
Epstein’s autopsy has been performed, but the conclusions thereof have yet to be released “pending further information.”
