#1 Silent night
Holy night
Perverts quake
At the sight

Round yon felon so tender and vile
Guards a snoozing (just for a while)
Sleep in hellishness slee-eeeeep
Slee-eep in hell.ish.ness ...
... sleep...

#2 Asleep, or at least staring intently at the ceiling, so as not to accidentally see anything.

#3 Did the cameras take a nap as well?

Pull the other one...

#4 Wonder how many times 'senior management' ever left their desks to stroll around to see how their important guests were doing? That which doesn't get inspected, doesn't get done. See - Management by Walking around.

#5 I wonder if their bank accounts show any unusual activity?

#6 I'm afraid we're going to have a drip, drip, drip of details indicating that something quite unusual went on. But we're never, ever going to find out what exactly it was. The bureaucratic cover-up will succeed.

#7 And when the drips are put together, what ultimately emerges will be so incoherent as to be laughable. But enough time shall have passed that nobody'll care, the front pages will have the villain of the day and that new sordid story.

#8 For some reason, this whole Epstein story reminds me of JFK's assassination and the feeling is bad, very bad. The truth will never be known and justice will not be done.

#9 A modicum of natural justice has been ensured by the universe, hasn't it ? Now it would really be complete if the Maxwell lady were to die too.

There is a judge above that needs no committees or sanctions from piddly men in long gowns. Think of the anguish and the tears of the unheard children that disappeared into his factory of filth. Such a man has other hidden crimes as well, ranging from silencing victims to forced abortions to gawd knows what. The auxiliary activities of a sex trafficker.

Rest assured, brethren that he is now in a place fitting for his kind, from which there is no escape, no parole, no appeal. The doctrines of ethical niceties do not apply there, and there is no recourse, only weeping and gnashing of teeth.

#11 It was murder and levels of our government and another were behind it. What surfaced was the foreign government sponsored blackmail scheme linked to a friendly pervert with a cover story and wide ranging links to the soft underbelly of political power in this country. There are too many factors to make it merely a rich pervert with an appetite for young girls and willing politicians. The cash flow without apparent sourcing, the cover given even in his first prosecution, the convenience of the demise, and the specific facts of the homicide. The proof will be the dog that didn't bark, to wax Holmesian. No major political names will fall, proof it was a conspiracy to protect a vital ally whose power honeytrap was close tp being revealed.

#12 Agree with Dron that natural justice will eventually apply but in the meantime those who murdered Epstein to cover their own crimes will walk free and continue to do evil while trust in our government is destroyed.

And all of this is to say nothing of the young girls who were victimized, whose lives were ruined while they were still children, who will not see that natural justice until they die. I hope they can get something from Epstein's estate but it's far from certain.

#13 Medical Examiner rules he was a suicide, and the fix begins.....Dr Wecht is already saying BS based on the finding that he self hung by leaning forward from a kneeling position to suffocate, inconsistent with broken hyoid and cervical bones, Wecht doesn't think it is possible to sustain those injuries, insufficient force.

Well, how about lining up a few cadavers and doing some testing. Ought to be lots of cadavers in NYC willing to take the plunge for science and justice. Just a thought.

#15 I'm sure the guards would be happy to volunteer to clear their names.
