If you’re wealthy Inmate, you can hang yourself and take Guards with You
Is prison security equal? This may be a rhetorical question because of the simple fact that someone in prison is theoretically always secure. But are some prisoners more secure because of their wealth? Jeffrey Epstein, the multimillionaire who allegedly committed rape of underage children, was found hanging in his jail cell. But what about the other inmates who are found every year in similar fatal positions?
In the case of Jeffery Epstein, the two federal guards involved were criminally charged with neglecting their duties and falsifying records to cover up the death.
How is this different? The simple answer can be money. Similar deaths garner little to no attention and always places the blame on the dead incarcerated person. Our firm’s position is simple: Prisons have been “Dante’s version of Hell” for too long, with the lowest of our society sinking to the lowest rung.
Prisons should not be this way. Everyone should be given the maximum protection available and respect for their life. There are people that do not deserve liberal treatment, but this does not answer the question of whether some are (particularly wealthy people) and others are not.
