Jeffrey Epstein’s 13-month “sentence” in Florida was a farce. He wasn’t in jail, as you and i understand that term, he only slept there. He spent all of his days in his office, ostensibly on a work furlough, and apparently his “business” was being up to no good, because new information is surfacing that while Epstein was supposedly working, he was in fact luring very young women to his corporate lair. In other words, the State of Florida, with the help of then-U.S. Attorney Alex Acosta, was enabling a sexual predator and pedophile, because they let him out every day to do his thing. Daily Beast:
“It was not for some business arrangement and it was for… improper sexual contact,” [Attorney Brad] Edwards said, adding that the new accusers said they were under 21, though they may not have been minors.
“He just wasn’t in jail. He only slept there. He was in his office most of the day and what I can tell you he had visitors, female visitors,” Edwards said.
“All I can say is more than one person that visited him,” Edwards said, declining to provide more details because of ongoing litigation. “They believed they were going there for something other than a sexual purpose.
“Once there, he used his perfect master manipulation to turn the situation into something sexual,” Edwards said. “Not one of the individuals was a prostitute. These were all people who at the time that wanted something. They came over under false pretenses and he manipulated them and now his attorneys have labeled them prostitutes.”
Quite a racket. Rich guy preys on the vulnerable, then turns it around and makes them the wrongdoers, alleging prostitution, which is illegal. First you victimize, then you criminalize. He’s got it wired. It’s devoutly to be wished that Epstein goes down in flames and that our culture begins to grow out of this knee jerk acceptance of the victimization of women, and the excusing of predatory men. It’s always the woman’s fault when the man behaves badly. This attitude is from the Middle Ages, and basically it still flies now, but Epstein may be finished, in the era of #MeToo and Harvey Weinstein. Epstein may soon find himself in a box canyon, with Lady Karma raining down arrows. It’s devoutly to be wished.
