Pore Jeff Epstein is daid,
All gather ’round his cawfin and ask why
He had a heap of gold
And he wasn’t so very old
Oh why did such a feller have to die?
Pore Jeff Espstein is daid,
He’s lookin’ oh so peaceful and sereneAnd serene!He’s all laid out to rest
With his hands acrost his chest
His fingernails have never been so clean!
Jeffrey Epstein, age 66, born on January 20, 1953, met his demise under the same circumstances as James J. “Whitey” Bulger, age 89 , born on September 3, 1929. Both were being held by the Federal Bureau of Prisons. While Bulger was interested in living despite knowing he would never get out of prison he was murdered on October 30, 2018. Epstein who was not under a sentence and was being held pending trial took his own life on August 10, 2019.
Both deaths are being investigated.
Attorney General Barr put out a statement: “I was appalled to learn that Jeffrey Epstein was found dead early this morning from an apparent suicide while in federal custody.”
The Attorney General nor anyone else high in the Justice Department put out a statement when Whitey Bulger was murdered.
You’d think that a murder within the prison rather than a suicide would be cause for someone being appalled.
Barr added: “Mr. Epstein’s death raises serious questions that must be answered.” The only question I can see is how was he able to commit suicide especially given that he had previously attempted to kill himself a couple or three weeks earlier.
Speaking of serious question to answer, I suggest the Bulger case presents a ton of them. The first is why was a guy with serious health problems transferred to a medical facility which then transferred him to the notorious horror house at Hazleton that had no such facility. How was it that other inmates knew he had arrived and the cell that he was in? How was it that around 6:00 am they had access to him? What is going on with the investigation into his death? Remember with Whitey it was the Justice Department that had the real animus toward him and that same Justice Department is investigating his murder. Is it any wonder nine months later no word that I know has come out on it. Those to me are the serious questions that must be answered.
Epstein’s death which is totally not mysterious is going to be investigated by the FBI and the Department of Justice Inspector General. We have no idea if anyone is investigating Whitey Bulger’s death.
The investigation into Epstein’s suicide will result in some low-level personnel being sanctioned for failing to properly prevent his suicide. No one on the prison staff will be adversely impacted by Whitey’s murder, although Epstein’s was caused by an act of omission and Whitey’s by a deliberately active act releasing information about his arrival.
One cannot write about Whitey and Epstein without mentioning Borough Park, Brooklyn, and the kid, as he tells it which has the ring of untruth, that often got into fights with Italian kids, Alan Dershowitz. He was very happy to befriend and defend pervert Epstein while at the same time had no problem castigating Whitey and many others he tried to connect to him about things he knew nothing about.
Dershowitz was accused by one of Epstein’s victims of having sex with her which he denied. But the items discovered in Epstein’s Florida mansion where I believe Dershowitz got his massage in his underwear and visited on many occasions showed it was filled with sexual items and naked photos of young girls. As one victim testified: ‘The activities were so obvious and bold that anyone spending any significant time at one of Epstein’s residences would have clearly been aware of what was going on.”
Who then was worse: Jeffrey Epstein, Whitey Bulger or Alan Dershowitz.
The number of young women Epstein abused, victimized and pimped to other people is in the hundreds. Some must be dead having been introduced to vile sex by him at such a young age that they were forever mentally despoiled. The carnage he brought about is impossible to estimate. He surely was the worst.
Whitey was not a Mafia leader. His group consisted of less than a dozen – probably three including himself. He was involved in the murder of less than ten people. He did the murders in one or two at the most preferring to let the blood soaked Steve Flemmi who admits to murdering 40 or so and who is being protected by the Justice Department do the actual murders. Among the people he associated with he was probably number six or seven in the hierarchy of vile and depraved Boston criminals at the time. Hard to even put him in the same class as Epstein when it comes to ruining lives.
Then there’s Dershowitz. He did not have to defend Epstein. That was his choice. He did not have to pal around with him. That was his choice. His sin was holding himself out as an erudite professor while chumming around with a well-known sex pervert. On top of that he felt free to slander those who led unblemished lives.
Dershowitz said about the year 1992: “In those days, if you didn’t know Trump and you didn’t know Epstein, you were a nobody.” Dershowitz never considered himself a nobody so can we infer he knew him way back then? Trump said in 2002: “I’ve known Jeff for 15 years. Terrific guy. 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.”
These people were “clearly . . . aware of what was going on” with Epstein.
Virginia Roberts Giuffre in a deposition testified about being pimped about by Epstein and his woman friend. She mentions people, some prominent, to whom she was required to give “massages.” She never mentioned Trump or Bill Clinton two persons with connections to Epstein which were she interested in making things up she could have easily done. That tends to give her credibility.
The boast of heraldry, the pomp of pow’r,
And all that beauty, all that wealth e’er gave,
Awaits alike th’ inevitable hour.
The paths of glory lead but to the grave.
The world is well rid of them. There will be few tears shed.
