A moment ago, the bail hearing for Jeffrey Epstein resumed. Each side will have 20 minutes today, with Judge Richard Berman to issue a ruling on Thursday.
Hopefully, we may soon begin plausibly imagining that this sorry bastard will never again be free. More importantly, so may his victims.
Jeffrey Epstein is a demonstrably unrepentant and evil predator, and he preyed upon children. Presuming he is held until trial and then convicted—more evidence is rolling in daily—that all but guarantees him one of two broad remaining life narratives. He may live another decade or two all by himself. Or, he may live for a time that may even be short enough to be measured in weeks, with a violent end.
(You see, even prison populations don’t care for monsters who hurt children.)
