Epstein Guard Willing to Cooperate With Invesgitators

I don't expect this means a lot, but you know, Epstein did not kill himself.*

A Manhattan prison guard is willing to cooperate with a federal investigation into Jeffrey Epstein's death -- even though she's been accused of goofing off while he hanged himself, her lawyer said Wednesday.

Tova Noel "did not make any efforts to frustrate the Government's investigation" following Epsteinís jailhouse suicide, defense lawyer Jason Foy said in a statement.

"In fact, Ms. Noel remains available to fully and truthfully cooperate with the Inspector Generalís investigation, which is also geared toward uncovering the many problems that existed from the commencement of her employment [and] which continue to plague the Metropolitan Correctional Center."

Foy didn't respond to a message asking what sort of info Noel could provide.

* As I've said, I actually think Epstein did kill himself. The idea of corrupt cops working for Hillary Clinton or the Royal Family bumping him off is just too big a thing for me to accept, on an intuitive, gut-guess level.

But I think it's generally salutary to distrust the government to the very maximum.

I also think it's funny to upset the Hall Monitors in our media and government who freak out if you mention a non-liberal-approved Conspiracy Theory.

31 Apparently, the security cam showing the hallway down toward his cell (one way in) made it clear that the guards or no one else entered his cell that night, which seems to rule out a murder.

Breaking News: Tova Noel found dead of apparent suicide. She emptied a gun into the back of her head and then strangled herself just to make sure

Posted by: TheQuietMan at November 21, 2019 01:17 PM (mpeBU)

63 I'm beginning to wonder if this is like the plot of a famous G.K. Chesterton "Father Brown" short story.

In the story, just as in Epstein's case, a man is locked in a cell with absolutely no way in or out -- no windows, no vents, nothing, except for a single solid door. Several people are standing outside the door, and they hear the guy inside yelling, "Oh dear! Help! Hellpppp!" Everyone is alarmed and think he is being killed. One guy says "I'll rush inside to see what happened to him!" He opens the door, rushes inside and immediately yells, "The man in the cell has been murdered!" Lo and behold, everyone else rushes in to see that he has indeed been murdered.

But how could that have happened? There was no one in the cell with him at the time.

Father Brown eventually deduces that the man in the cell had, at first, NOT been murdered. And that the killer was in fact the first guy who rushed in, who very quickly killed the victim and only THEN announced he had been murdered.

(And yes, this plot device was later re-used in the first episode of the "Death in Paradise" British comedy-mystery TV series, in case it seems familiar.)

So I'm wondering: Who exactly was it that "discovered" Epstein's "body." Was the discoverer alone? How many seconds/minutes went by before the initial discoverer informed anyone else?

Several Female Guards at the Baltimore City Jail were pregnant with the children of the gang boss of Baltimore's biggest drug gang a few years ago. The gang effectively ran the jail, and the gang leader was able to lead the gang while inside the jail. The jail was so corrupt the feds were threatening to take it over. After that, I didn't hear anything more.

125 I'll dare to ask the question:

Why is a female prison guard working in the men's prison?

That is known to be a recipe for disaster. Either due to rape attempts by the prisoners, or due to the female guard consensually dallying with a prisoner who convinces her to help him escape.

Wherever they have had female guards in male prisons, one or both of these things generally happen. I thought the criminal justice system wised up and stopped being stupidly PC and removed all female guards from male prisons.

Posted by: vrf at November 21, 2019 01:11 PM (L8qt4)


I think that's the most likely scenario.

Epstein was given word, somewhere, somehow, that made him decide that living was worse than dying.

I mean, that's what suicide is, in a nutshell.

The person decides this is the easier way out. So unless one can show that Epstein believed, in and of himself, that his life wasn't worth living, then someone else showed him so.

Ummm, no. There are quite a few female staff, not just guards, roaming around in this country's prisons.

So much of this stuff is extraordinarily routine. Most prisoners aren't violent, most prisons aren't hellholes of chaos. Most of the time, it's people (prisoners and staff alike) going about their day to day existence, as if it's normal. Because to them, it is.

So yeah, there are women staff who get abused and/or used by prisoners to smuggle in shit, but really, male staff are just as susceptible to being corrupted as women staff.

The effect is the same: dead pedo. But arguably, there's no actual crime committed. Plus, murder has a nasty habit of spiraling out of control and causing more problems than it solves.

I've been saying that since day one. I think he was goaded into thinking that he had no other choice, and then he was deliberately placed in a falling-apart Fed facility staffed by lazy retards.

The effect is the same: dead pedo. But arguably, there's no actual crime committed. Plus, murder has a nasty habit of spiraling out of control and causing more problems than it solves.

Regardless, I'm enjoying the squirming going on from various miscreants every time a sarcastic right-winger says Epstein Didn't Kill Himself.

If Bill Clinton goes to bed at night, fretting over his legacy, then I guess that's some small comfort, but I kinda doubt he does. I think he goes to bed at night, remembering all the nubile girls he's f**ked over the years, and believes he deserved it as a reward for being such a feminist hero.

The Epstein murder just had too much traction in the public. This EDKH thing wouldn't go away, and someone has to take the fall, so it's gonna be these two. I'm sure they've been promised a lenient plea deal and a nice payoff if they cop to whatever the FBI tells them to cop to.

And, ya know, all of the EDKH jokes aside, I was pretty much split as to whether it was murder or simply that these people were paid to look the other way in Epstein's case.

But now that the FBI is saying he killed himself, I know for 100% sure that Epstein Didn't Kill Himself.

BUT if you go with Duck Duck Go, you "New Government Scheduling elections" "Morales Supporters attempt to shut down food and fuel shipments" and "Morales attempted to turn Bolivia into a Narco-State."

261 @125

Having worked in corrections (state level) for a long time there are a couple reasons why female officers work in male prison facilities and vice versa.

The 1st reason is who can search visitors -- much like how male police officers on the street must call for a female officer to conduct a search of a female suspect. Female correctional officers can perform physical searches of female visitors that male officers are prohibited from conducting.

The 2nd reason has to do with job assignment discrimination. Because female offenders are often a much smaller population compared to male offenders there are fewer facilities to house females. This means that from a job assignment (and billets to promote qualified candidates into) it would limit female correctional officers from ever holding higher rank or assignments compared to male officers. So all job assignments must be open to all applicants provided they meet all other requirements (time in service/grade, education, etc.)

262 I am not defaming anyone as anyone who does a job well should be proud. But Liddy said there were two types of people in prison. There was the group that was forced to spend their days in prison and there was the group that volunteered to spend their days in prison. That is Liddy talking.
Posted by: Quint at November 21, 2019 01:41 PM (n13/j)


Kind of true. And, in a sense, there are lots of guards who view the job as a deadender, and they get a mindset that they're victims of the system, more than the prisoners.

Corruptions among guards often comes from that perspective. They MADE me take this rotten job, to endlessly watch over these bad people, so I'm gonna get mine where I can.

USA Today, May 7, 2014 An EPA employee with a work-from-home job did no work for five years -- and still earned a total of $600,000 and performance bonuses. She retired after an inspector general investigation.

She claimed she was on special assignment with the CIA, and no one, including her boss, bothered to check up on that. For FIVE years.

When I first called, I got someone obviously in India who had a very lovely accent. She assured me she was just routing me to the correct US based support location.

She sounds rather English when she talks on the phone because she is surrounded by English people. She still has a NJ accent but with an English overlay, and she's not a person that would fake anything.

Speaking of accents, I just finished listening to an audio collection of Sherlock Holmes narrated by Stephen Fry. His American accent sounds off.
I can't define why it sounds off but it just doesn't sound right to me.

360 Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu responded Thursday to the Attorney General's decision to indict him for bribery, fraud and breach of trust.

"I respect the Israeli judicial authorities very much. They have earned a world-wide name and rightly so. But one has to be blind to not see that something not good is happening with the police and the prosecutor's office," Netanyahu said.

"Today we see an attempt to make a government coup against the prime minister with false allegations and in the process of tainted and biased investigations.

"I've given my life for the State. I fought for it and was wounded for it."

There was a very good video piece done a few years back which went into detail into how all the regional American accents were descended from the British regional accents corresponding to the colonists in those area. Britain used to have far greater variety than it does in the 20th century (there's still some) What we call King's English is mainly London and Oxford English. Most northern american accents are descended from Yorkshire, and the Boston accent is believed to be derived from an early to mid 19th century Irish accent, which was much different than a modern Irish accent. (And Ireland had regional accents as well, especially a city/country split)

But the point of the meme isn't that exactly. It's the obvious dropping of all reporting by news outlets, a complete black holing of the entire le affarie de Epstein that is so troubling. He's dead. Story over. You fucking kidding me? Lying bastards!

Is Clinton a pedo? How about prince Andrew? How about George Stephonopolis?

Why'd Epstien get off the first time so easy? Where'd he get his money? What about the #metoo movement you shoved down everyone's fucking throat till you realized it implicated mostly Democrats?

So fuck them, Epstein didn't kill himself. I'll keep saying it till the whole fucking story comes out, and the chips fall where they may.

My wife is Bolivian who I met when I lived down there. Morales is a typical incompetent anti-American socialist who held a knife to the countries throat for years with chaos, blockades and strikes until he finally manged to get elected after his mobs forced a competent, pro-American president to resign and flee the country. He was starting his fourth term although limited by the constitution to two and finally run out of power and the country after the fraud became too obvious to ignore and the military abandoned him.

395 I am pretty good with English accents.

A
weird irony of the show Frasier is that Daphne was supposed to be from
Glasgow. She spoke with a Glaswegian accent. Of course the actress
Jane Leeves was not from Glasgow and never sounded like a Glaswegian.
She took a lot of guff over that. I still don't understand why they made
her from Glasgow when the actress was not from there and could not do
the accent. What was the point in that? It is not like Americans would
know the difference from one town to the next.

Another
funny thing about Frasier is when Martin calls his umbrella a
Bumbershoot. Daphne responds that it is nice for an American to use her
native tongue. But Bumbershoot is not a British term at all, it is an
American term for an umbrella. Obviously none of the writers or actors
knew this bit of trivia.
