People need to understand that being on suicide watch isn't just about not having any items you could hang yourself with, but about being in a room where *there's nowhere to hang yourself from*. Taking Epstein off suicide watch *may* have altered both circumstances—it's shocking.
1/ Needless to say, inmates can get very creative—in distressing ways—if they want to kill themselves by hanging but have no place to hang from. And a person bent on killing themselves, with that grim resolve, can often find a way. And few prisoners' cells are TV-monitored 24/7.
2/ But Epstein presented at the *highest threat level* for suicide or inmate violence due to the national/international nature of his case and his prior suicide attempt. He should've been alone, in a special cell, and under closed-circuit monitoring 24/7—it's not even a question.
3/ Even beyond the preceding evidence, major-media reporting over the past few weeks *repeatedly confirmed* that Epstein was having an extremely hard time adjusting to being in a cell.

*Every* *possible* *alarm bell* was *blaring* that this man was a risk of suicide or homicide.
4/ Moreover, the document release in the Roberts defamation case yesterday *immeasureably increased the danger* of an Epstein suicide/inmate-inmate violence, and *immeasurably increased* the odds Epstein would try to cut a deal with prosecutors by offering up new co-conspirators.
5/ My point: there's a reasonable likelihood that this is the most suspicious death in federal custody in years, if not decades. You *couldn't have* a more high-profile case, defendant, witnesses, co-conspirators, political implications, or warning signs of a suicide or homicide.
