frustration and wonky passion (C. Grisso/McCain), Sunday, 11 August 2019 04:29 (five months ago) link

I knew this storyline felt like a retread

Remember when the Panama Papers revealed global level finance crimes and the only thing that happened was that the journalist who released them got killed?

who even remembers at this point that the paradise papers followed that, to even less impact

this twitter thread seemed pretty enlightening re: suicide watch, and what that means in practice

Incoming thread.

Content warning: discussion of suicidal ideation and suicide watch protocol.

Today is an emotionally tough day. Bowing out is fine. Being furious is 100% reasonable.

Warning.

I'm not fully up on the details, but I don't see how Epstein even countenances suicide BEFORE a trial. He'd have a reasonable expectation he could beat the case surely. After a conviction, well. thats a different story

People being murdered in prison is hardly an unusual occurrence

No one ever thought this guy was going to make trial

anvil, Sunday, 11 August 2019 09:12 (five months ago) link

He'd have a reasonable expectation he could beat the case surely.

I'm sure he had a reasonable expectation he was going to get bail, when he didn't get it maybe the sky finally fell in. Tbh I don't want to spend another minute thinking about his POS and am dissappointed at myself for commenting itt.

Ned Trifle X, Sunday, 11 August 2019 10:12 (five months ago) link

u guys do recall that Trump and the Clintons were pals for a couple decades, right?

Hillary didn't lose the "election"; she lost the coin toss backstage, overseen by the lizard people who secretly guide all world events. Then she just had to "make it look good" and vanish off the public stage once her role in the Grand Design was complete. Do I have that right, Morbs?

Don't have stats to hand but people killing themselves in prison is far less unusual.

Euripedes' Trousers (Tom D.), Sunday, 11 August 2019 11:33 (five months ago) link

I really don’t get the impulse to pooh-pooh people for having conspiracy theories about this when the person in question here was being prosecuted for participating in A MASSIVE CONSPIRACY

Epstein may or may not have been whacked but how can you blame people for thinking he was?

If you want this downplayed because you think it will give ammunition to the right, well, whose fault is that? The Clintons willingly chose to associate (extensively) with this guy. A staggering amount of famous liberals did, even AFTER he had been charged the first time.

People believe in conspiracy theories about the wealthy and powerful being depraved monsters who can get away with anything because they are constantly being given good reason to believe it.

And if you dismiss their concerns about it, they’ll happily fall under the sway of something like Qanon

Right, exactly! I don't think anyone here is going to dispute that people die regularly in prison, both by their own hand and by the hands of others. It is far from outlandish to suggest the people are murdered in prison, and that certain people are potentially more at risk of this happening to them.

After trial, I'd take a sucide explanation all day long. Before? I can't see it

anvil, Sunday, 11 August 2019 12:09 (five months ago) link

there's a pretty blinkered anti-conspiracy strain of thought that resembles Richard Dawkins' dogmatic brand of atheism...more abt intellectual arrogance than anything else

one thing for sure about this guy, he killed himself or he didn't

The Ravishing of ROFL Stein (Hadrian VIII), Sunday, 11 August 2019 12:33 (five months ago) link

I mean either way there are enough complexities (psychological or conspiratorial) to make me wonder how some rando on twitter (or ILX) can be all "NO!" about it

The Ravishing of ROFL Stein (Hadrian VIII), Sunday, 11 August 2019 12:34 (five months ago) link

OTM

Conceptualize Wyverns (latebloomer), Sunday, 11 August 2019 12:42 (five months ago) link

The 3rd option that I've seen people claim is that the body isn't estrone st all. Photos show the substitute is clearly different to the living Epstein so he's been spirited away somewhere comfortable.
Which really is a conspiracy theory.
Like.
But is one I've seen circulating.

Again, I don’t really track why people are so quick to attribute any level of rational thinking to the insane pedophile sex slaver who built an impregnation ranch

was he insane?

he pretty rationally figured he could get away with this, it went on for a very long time

The twitter thread soref posted really says it all

“Hakuna Matata,” a nihilist philosophy (One Eye Open), Sunday, 11 August 2019 13:13 (five months ago) link

I corrected a predictive text back to epstein on the previous comment. I thought it had become a recognised option for the phone then it posted wrong again.
But there is a conspiracy theory circulating that e body isn't epstein at all.
Which is another way of seeing things.
Gone back to his lizard friends?

omg, insane Twitter liberals actually *are* theorizing Putin did it. And Perrin just thought he was joking.

starting an impregnation ranch is less bonkers when seen as an elaborate cover for sex island, getting a sort of free pass as an eccentric or horny Dr. Moreau

Epstein had plenty of agency himself to decide to take his own life to protect his rich buddies.

well he had plenty of other reasons to kill himself, such as "no future" and "complete and utter humiliation"

Vape Store (crüt), Sunday, 11 August 2019 13:53 (five months ago) link

I didn't realize we were doing specifics! I'd like to restate in that case. I think is likely he was murdered but I have no idea who by

effrey Epstein, the financier who hanged himself in a federal jail in Manhattan, was supposed to have been checked by guards every 30 minutes, but that procedure was not being followed the night before he was found, a law-enforcement official with knowledge of his detention said.

In addition, the jail had transferred his cellmate and allowed Mr. Epstein to be housed alone in a cell just two weeks after he had been taken off suicide watch, a decision that also violated the jail’s normal procedure, two officials said.

I just think people who say Epstein was murdered are talking out their asses and I feel it’s my duty to call them out on it if not shame them for it. What’s the big deal
