Slightly off topic but I'm currently watching the HBO series Staircase. Fascinating case and it seems the US system is completely screwed, trial by media, pleas bargains and effectively blackmail to co-erce witness cooperation. What an absolutely fucked up system from the land of the free. Boris Grrrr
Then she wasn't smart enough to have various names and times/locations etc drafted and copied and stashed in a number of secret locations to be released to media across the globe in the event of a nasty accident or worse and make that be known that they are out there and will surface if anything happens.If that's the case, maxwell is between a rock and a hard place, if she tells all, she will have an "accident" if she doesn't, she will banged up for life, in solitary, to make sure she doesn't. Which tells you all you need to know about american morality, and who really runs the country.
I'm more upset about the stolen valour although throwing two wives down the stairs shows a distinct lack of imagination.Watch the Netflix documentary. It’s not as agenda leaning. Spoiler: he blew off that French chick as soon as he got out. She, like others, was used. There was no owl. The injuries only match manual strangulation. He did it.

Well there is that aspect but if you have names of all the participants/dates/times etc then let the investigation journos do the rest.
I seem to recall that during Maxwell’s trial Epstein’s pilot stated that Trump had also used his plane on occasion.
I don’t say that as ‘whataboutery’, but more at my bemusement that some get the ‘nothing to see here, move along’ treatment, while Hillary particularly gets the ‘she must be a witch, burn her’ approach.
Just seems odd, to me.
The problem is that if she was rumored to ready to talk about either half of a very big US couple she would very surprised when she “commits suicide”She could reduce that sentence, say a year off for every name named. Odd that only one, who happens to be a very big, non-US target, has been named, albeit without reliable witness or evidence.
With regards to the American legal system, it's quite astonishing what they can get away with. In Making A Murderer, the DA is holding a news conference telling everyone that the accused is guilty before, during and after the trial. Evidence is planted (the casings in the bedroom that were on the floor yet the first search never found them) and all sorts of shenanigans that we wouldn't put up with because of sub judice etc.
With The Staircase, I haven't seen the new drama series, but I watched the documentary series on it some time ago. What haunts me is to hear his daughters talking about their dad's innocence with eyes brimming with tears. You can see them wrestling with the facts. The documentary was heavily biased towards his innocence, it was quite a shock to me when he was convicted. Having said that, subsequent reading up and the fact that his first wife died in identical circumstances removed much of the doubt.
Even if he was innocent, he might Alford plea anyway, people will always think he did it, so why not get out of prison early?
Have an excellent for inducing WTFs.I was out and about with an undercover US Plod narcotics unit doing post sales door knocking to nick a crack manufacturer that an undercover had bought from.
By the time we got back to the HQ building with the prisoner, crack, and seized firearms a news conference was being set up. Press and TV cameras were already on site, tables set up to display the haul, and the police chief was there waiting for the head of the unit before starting. They tried to drag me into it as a visiting British copper but, I had a subsequent engagement with a coffe machine.
Cases are tried in the media here, no matter how much they argue the toss . They all want to be on telly, or have their picture in the paper. The reason being is that most of the muppets are elected into their positions so they need the PR to hang onto their well paying elected jobs. Sheriffs are directly elected, Police Chiefs are appointed, or fired, by the Mayor, and Mayors are elected. It gets professional at the level of State Police who are less affected by local city (police) and county (sheriff) politics.
As a side note: If I had gathered evidence and presented it into court case the way I have seen police and sheriffs collect it here I would have been rifted. At one location I was assissting with collecting and processing evidence and doing it like we do in the UK. I received a few WTF’s from city detectives who were just dropping evidence into brown paper bags and writing on the side with a felt tip. Their Lt. loudly explained to them that the way I was doing it is best practice and is the way that the DEA and FBI do it.
