His death means a lot of bastards will get away too easy. Shamelessly.

it doesnt have to.

we all could revolt and eat the rich in protest.

theres way more of us than them.
Hugh E. said @ 3:09pm GMT on 10th Aug
There certainly are more not-rich than rich, but maybe not more us than them. America is a barrel replete with rotting apples and clawing crabs.

I don't think we need a conspiracy theory of murder to explain that a man with the means and motive to kill himself killed himself.

Although they most assuredly could have prevented it and chose to allow it to happen.

Motive? He's gotten away with it before. What has changed?

Gosh, I dunno. Maybe it was the 14 years of life events in between these two instances. Maybe it was the fact that facing prison in your 60s is different from your 40s. Maybe he disliked the 13 months he had to serve last time. Maybe he disliked the nearly 10 civil cases that followed. (Who knows what that did to his assets and connections.) Maybe he wasn't getting the preferential treatment in jail this time around that he was accustomed to/expected. Maybe the fact that he had a record this time around got to him, or the fact that they had more evidence on him this time. Maybe because a plea deal this time would mean pissing off many more, and more powerful, people than last time. Maybe he'd been threatened.

Parsimony, friend.

I don't think he was murdered. But he was already on suicide watch. For him to have killed himself, the guards would have to have been conveniently looking the other way. Which seems a much more likely explanation to me.

So apparently, he was taken of suicide watch 12 days before his death.
rylex said @ 8:14am GMT on 11th Aug
he would have to have been. suicide watch in most jails is referred to as "the booty naked" or "asscrack naked" room. due to the fact that you are stripped before being thrown in.

source: seen inmates go in and come out of suicide watch in a few different jails around the country.

It also tends to include not being allowed to shit in private and having to have all the lights on the dayglo bright setting 24/7.

A lot of the procedures done to keep suicidal people safe are really, really good at making them more suicidal.
rylex said @ 6:16pm GMT on 11th Aug
you can shit in private in jail??
snowfox said @ 4:31pm GMT on 14th Aug
And sometimes those people freeze to death from a combination of body temperature lowering medications and lack of access to anything but paper sheets and clothes! That'll teach them to think about suicide!

Washington Post is now reporting that he should have had a roommate, but the roommate was removed Friday. Also should have been checked every 30 minutes, but had been left unmonitored for several hours.
Dienes said @ 10:42pm GMT on 10th Aug
That is exactly my thought, too. Its neglect, not murder.

That only makes sense if the guards are running the show (not the lawyers, judges, or justice department) and that's what they want. This isn't a "Whoops. Sorry boss, I'll try better next time" situation. Unless this whole thing really was just blown out of proportion and there really isn't more to this than one old rich perv, this would've been subject to special security; with trusted guards impressed on them the gravity of the situation. Failing to prevent his suicide wouldn't merely mean the end of the guards careers, but having them face very serious criminal charges of their own. I don't see a reasonable middle road here. Either the security focus would've been far greater than normal, or it would have been purposely not paying close attention. Whether the end is achieved via actual suicide or helped along is moot. I'd call that chain of events a planned death.

Hangins too good for him, burnins too good for him, he should be torn into itty bitty pieces and buried alive!

So you are saying he was nothing but a low down, double dealing, back stabbing, larcenous, perverted worm?

Very difficult to tear someone into itty bitty pieces prior to a live burial.

Well, if a live person was secured to the platform in a sky burial, it could happen in tandem.
