Epstein’s ‘bizarre’ treatment during stay in jail filled with multiple oddities: Washington Post investigative reporter

Published

on

Appearing with MSNBC host Joy Reid, Washington Post investigative reporter Carol Leoning noted multiple irregularities in the way convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein was treated while in jail that may have contributed to his death.

During her appearance on “AM Joy,” Leoning was asked about the facility and what measures are taken to prevent suicides.

“I’m not an expert on this facility, but I believe there are a lot of protections to prevent this kind of thing from happening,” she confessed. “We just don’t know enough yet to say how it happened just as we still don’t know, two weeks later, what happened on July 23rd. I think that, you know, it’s scary and worrisome for conspiracy theorists to spread rumors about what could or should have happened, but it is reasonable to ask the question what do we know, what do the tapes show and when was the last time somebody saw him alive?”

“My understanding is if someone exhibits suicidal ideation and they attempt to actually hurt themselves, they would then be on suicide watch, and it wouldn’t be brief,” Reid prompted. “There’d be a constant monitoring of that person. Does it read as logical to you someone this famous being accused of predation on children — which normally can lead to violence against you in prison, these are people targeted, people who allegedly molest kids — would it make sense to you to take someone like that who’s that high profile off suicide watch?”

“No. I mean, everything about this, Joy, is so odd,” Leoning remarked. “The July 23rd incident is a red flag. The fact he was in a cell with a roommate who is about four times his size and is an accused — a former police officer who’s accused of killing four people — the fact that was his roommate is also odd.”

“Again, that’s back to July 23rd. I don’t know understand how they run the prison. I just know these things sort of stand out as bizarre, and now he’s dead an, honestly for his victims, you know, what in the world should they feel at this moment?” she added.

‘People’s lives will be lost’: Psychiatrist warns ‘sociopath’ Trump is ‘getting worse’ — and failing in coronavirus response

Published

on

President Donald Trump's psychological problems are getting worse and could be consequential as America faces a potential COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.

MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell on Thursday interviewed Dr. Lance Dodes, a former assistant clinical professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School.

"As you pointed out, Lawrence, this man is about himself. He really is not about the country, he's not about public health," Dr. Dodes said of Trump.

"Although he has already severely damaged the country by being a psychopath or sociopath -- in many ways, he's damaged democracy -- I think people's lives will be lost now," he warned. "Individual lives will be lost because of the way he's mishandling the coronavirus issue."

Published

As the 2020 presidential campaign cycle grinds on, there’s renewed concern about the 21st century’s newest form of warfare: cyber-sabotage of government systems, including elections and online disinformation intended to incite unrest. But as Suppressed: The Fight to Vote, a documentary from Brave New Films, makes clear, partisan voter suppression tactics with 20th-century roots remain and can thwart multitudes of voters from changing their state’s political leaders.

The real story behind Trump’s new lawsuit against the New York Times

Published

on

Wednesday was an ominous day for freedom of the press in this country, and I want to tell you why.

You may have heard or seen that President Trump filed a libel suit against the New York Times. Perhaps you weren’t surprised: the president is known to frequently disparage the Times even as he reads it obsessively. Borrowing a page from what I’ve referred to before as a Mount Rushmore of totalitarians, Robespierre, Hitler, Stalin and Mao, Trump loves to call the press the “enemy of the people.”
