Jeffrey Epstein managed to get a pass from Florida, New York, New Mexico, and Federal law enforcement for serial abuse of underage victims. His prison sentence was in the private wing of the Palm Beach Stockade. He got to go on work release to an office where he continued to abuse other women and girls. He wasn’t forced to register as a sex offender in Florida, New York, or New Mexico.
Multiple law enforcement agencies and prosecutors chose to give him a blatant pass. The media showed very little interest in the story until it recently decided to revive it in order to undermine a Trump nominee. And then, once that mission was accomplished, Epstein committed suicide. In a facility supposedly designed to prevent prisoners from killing themselves, after being taken off suicide watch after a supposed previous attempt.
Is it really that hard to understand why people would be skeptical?
Instead, the same media that chose to give Epstein a pass, that colluded to target potential whistleblowers at ABC News, is acting as if skepticism is unwarranted here.
Epstein has obviously become the center of a swirling mass of conspiracy theories. Many of them garbage. But this is not a case of a completely reasonable event taking place that requires no further explanation. Instead it’s the latest episode in a series of events involving Epstein that have no reasonable explanation. In isolation, Epstein’s death might be rationalized. But within the context of his past, it’s a whole lot harder.
The only explanation for Epstein’s pass at so many levels is that he had powerful connections. Without a serious investigation into who those connections were, no one is obligated to believe that he committed suicide.
