Jeffrey Epstein dead by """""suicide"""""

Postby Nova Cyberia » Sat Jul 06, 2019 9:44 pm

Source.
Jeffrey Epstein, a wealthy, politically connected Florida financier, was arrested in New York on Saturday evening on sex trafficking charges, sources tell NBC 4 New York. 

Epstein was expected to appear in federal court in Manhattan on Monday, two law enforcement officials said on a condition of anonymity. 

He will face federal charges for incidents between 2002-2005, three senior law enforcement sources told NBC News. 

A law enforcement official said Epstein would be charged with trafficking and conspiracy to traffic minors for sex. 

A senior official briefed on the case said there were dozens of alleged underaged victims, some as young as 14. 

Epstein allegedly paid minors cash for massages and then sex acts, the source said. He would then pay those alleged victims even more to bring him their friends or others who he would also allegedly pay for sex acts. 

Epstein’s lead attorney Jack Goldberger, told NBC News he “declines to comment at this time.”

The crimes allegedly occurred at his homes on the Upper East Side and in Palm Beach, Florida. 

Epstein was flying from Paris to New York on Saturday and was arrested at Teterboro Airport, the sources said. 

Spokesmen for the FBI, the NYPD and the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Southern District of New York declined to comment. 

"Jeffrey Epstein has evaded justice for too long - this child rapist belongs in prison and should not be allowed to post bail and hurt more girls," said Sen. Ben Sasse, R-Nebraska, the Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Oversight Subcommittee.

A 2008 deal ended a federal investigation that could have landed Epstein, now 66, in prison for life. Instead, he was allowed to plead guilty to lesser state charges that resulted in a 13-month jail sentence and required financial settlements to dozens of his victims. He also had to register as a sex offender.

The agreement was overseen by former Miami U.S. Attorney Alexander Acosta, who is now President Donald Trump's labor secretary. In the face of intense criticism, Acosta has defended the plea deal as appropriate under the circumstances.

Court documents show at least 40 underage girls were brought into Epstein's Palm Beach mansion for what turned into sexual encounters. Authorities say he had female fixers who would look for suitable girls, some local and others recruited from Eastern Europe and other parts of the world.

An attorney representing four of the girls in the 2008 case said they will continue to fight for all of his co-conspirators to be held accountable. 

"With his money, Epstein was able to buy more than a decade of delay in facing justice – but fortunately he wasn’t able to postpone justice forever," said attorney Paul G. Cassell.

Epstein has maintained a home in New York City, a ranch in New Mexico and a private Caribbean island. Some of the girls were brought to those places as well, court documents show. 

Epstein is a wealthy hedge fund manager who once counted as friends former President Bill Clinton, Great Britain's Prince Andrew and Trump, who was his neighbor in Palm Beach at the time.

Well, it's been a long time coming but Jeffrey Epstein has finally been arrested and faces sex trafficking charges. If the charges are true then Epstein should thrown be thrown away, preferably for life.

Thoughts?

Edit: He's dead by suicide.

Although he did pay them I am more concerned that he probably didn’t respect them.

He's a billionaire who's connected to powerful politicians. It tends to take a while.

This is why you must all give up capitalism and control the means of production yourselves, through constitutional councils.

Knock off the attempted threadjack. Topic is the guy busted on sex trafficking charges, not the glories of communism/evils of capitalism.

What I never get about those types, he clearly invested some criminal energy into it. Hiring female fixers, using various assets, paying hush money... why does he all that while in the United States and staying there, even after they get him down?

Wasn't he aware or just didn cared or thought himself to be untouchable?

Guy is probably bad and probably didn’t treat all them children right, which could have been prevented if the children had power in workers council.

Heard the name before but not really much about the guy. Holy shit there's a lot of famous names connected to him.

I just hope that if some of those genuinely powerful people on that list start getting investigated it's actually pursued rather than swept under the rug, like what happened over in my country when things like Operation Yewtree started looking at politicians who had been quite friendly with Savile and co. Back in the day.

I guess Trump said it best:
“I’ve known Jeff for fifteen years. Terrific guy,” Trump booms from a speakerphone. “He’s a lot of fun to be with. It is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side. No doubt about it – Jeffrey enjoys his social life.”

Innocent until proven guilty people. Innocent until proven guilty.
Purpelia does not reflect my actual world views. In fact, the vast majority of Purpelian cannon is meant to shock and thus deliberately insane. I just like playing with the idea of a country of madmen utterly convinced that everyone else are the barbarians. So play along or not but don't ever think it's for real.
