Can’t Step on the Toes of Another Lawyer

JusticeThey left a monster free because they didn’t want to “second guess” another lawyer. Manhattan federal prosecutors declined to pursue Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell case in 2016: sources

Because “second guessing” a colleague wouldn’t show proper respect to a fellow member of the cloth the fraternity the brotherhood the profession.

Some people think I am using hyperbole when I write about the arrogance of attorneys.

Yet more rehashing of Epstein’s reign of terror. But the most insane part of the story is why the US Prosecutor in New York didn’t take action for 2 years.

“This was not a situation where we were dealing with people who didn’t care. I never thought they didn’t believe our story. I never had any doubt they were sympathetic, even outraged by it. They simply seemed to feel they couldn’t be seen as second guessing what the U.S. Attorney in Florida had done,” [Lawyer David] Boies said. [My emphasis. Z-Deb]

The ONLY reason that they decided that they had to “second guess” another attorney, is because the Miami Herald shined a great big, embarrassing light on the situation.

The office’s attitude changed after the Miami Herald highlighted the “Perversion of Justice” that resulted in Epstein receiving a slap on the wrist.

I mean be fair; that was seriously bad publicity.

The Criminal Justice System. It is a “system,” which means it takes care of itself first. It is often Criminal. And it has almost no interest in Justice.

Epstein and The Private Funding of Research

And Epstein still didn’t kill himself. This article is from the upcoming, September 2020, edition of Scientific American. Jeffrey Epstein’s Harvard Connections Show How Money Can Distort Research: Letting the rich pay for science that interests them is a bad idea—even if they aren’t convicted sex offenders.

So before he didn’t kill himself, but after he was a convicted sex-offender, Harvard took a lot of money from him, gave him a position, and let him influence research.

What made it even worse was that Epstein was a latter-day eugenicist whose interests were tied to a delusional notion of seeding the human race with his own DNA. Given this stance, it is particularly disturbing that he focused his largesse on research on the genetic basis of human behavior. Human genetics is an ethically sensitive and intellectually contested domain where it behooves us to ensure that the highest standards of scientific rigor are in place and that nongenetic explanations for behavior are given a fair chance to compete.

Scientists might claim that Epstein’s money in no way caused them to lower their standards, but we have broad evidence that the interests of funders often influence the work done. The New York Times concluded that in this case it led researchers “to give credence to some of Mr. Epstein’s half-baked scientific musings.”

For a Scientific American article, this one is not too long, but worth your time.

People Don’t Trust the Story Regarding Epstein

Not that everyone believes one version of events, just that no one is buying the official line. Via Moonbattery – Epstein and Public Trust.

Maybe the best thing about the demise of Jeffrey Epstein is that the story is too lurid to escape widespread attention and too fishy not to erode public gullibility regarding the trustworthiness of Big Government and Big Media.
