The warden of MCC is…

The warden of MCC, the prison where Jeffrey Epstein committed suicide, is named at the NY Times (as well as other news sources).

Morons on the web have been shouting that it’s a conspiracy of some kind, while I point to Hanlons razor, which says that you should never attributed to a conspiracy that which is easily explained by stupidity or incompetence. There have been articles well before Jeffrey Epstein was being held there that MCC was a poorly run hellhole.

Not surprisingly, we learn that the warden of MCC has a black name. Probably an affirmative action promotion.

  2. Hey I called it first. And it’s not affirmative action- most corrections officers in nyc are NAMs.

    So are there any conspiracy theories (which is a stupid term anyway) that you do believe, or at least give credence to, Lion?

  5. Blacks have been drawn to correctional work for decades. Nothing new here.

    • In all the prison documentaries I’ve watched, COs were mostly white, but perhaps that was regional. In nyc for whatever reason there are few white COs. One of my neighbors was a guard at rikers early 1980s and he was one of two white COs there.

      Here’s an interesting article about life as a CO in nyc, if you haven’t already read it:

      • NAMs makeup more than half of NYC’s demographics. No other city in America has more black people than the Big Fat Apple.

        Why is it a surprise that blacks are overrepresented in low status, sh!t jobs, that might pay well, where proles might even croak, because the work sucks?

        Ok, what, who's this again?

        August 14, 2019 at EDT am

      • Also, one needs to understand NYC’s declining prole population, with the exception of Staten Island. When one thinks of White people who live in NYC, one conjures up an image of SWPL types in their pricey Manhattan apartments and expensive neighborhoods of Brooklyn.

        Ok, what, who's this again?

      • The kind of prole who could stomach working as a CO doesn’t really exist in nyc anymore except in SI and pockets of other outer boroughs. btw the reason I know my neighbor was one of two white COs: on his last day on the job he was involved in an incident with an inmate. Because he was wearing protective gear over his face the inmate could only describe him as ‘the white guy.’ By the point it was written up there was only one white CO left so he took the fall!

  6. Also makes corruption more likely though, so I don’t think it supports either side of the foul-play debate.

  7. Are you saying that blacks can’t be corrupt? Or that it has to be incompetence because the warden was black? Don’t you know that poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white kids?

    Blacks are greatly over-represented, not only as prison inmates, but also as prison employees.

    • Correct, and in NYC, it is indeed a glaring fact. blacks are also the main engines of gov’t and low status menial work, such as a delivery person for Amazon, retail employee and any other low functioning corporate role. Hispanics take up these positions as well, but they are in the minority at the moment. Besides the low totem pole role of busboys with Hispanics, Hispanics tend to work for smaller companies, because these employers can’t afford to virtue signal with black employees to fulfill the liberal agenda.

      Ok, what, who's this again?

      August 14, 2019 at EDT am

      • “low status menial work, such as a delivery person for Amazon”

        I don’t know about Amazon, but I know for a fact that UPS delivery drivers make $42 per hour.

      • Proles are a few and far between working at jobs that they are well suited in NYC. It’s now the 21st century, and the dynamics are all about hiring NAMs as the servants for the upper parasitic class. I guess the White upper parasites hate proles, because they fear them as competition in the wealth and status race, knowing that NAMs pose no threat at all.

        No one predicted 9-11 would happen, and no one predicated post 9-11 became a world where a few had everything, and everyone else were strivers, servants and slaves. After 9-11, those who were lucky to live in Manhattan, without being persecuted by their landlords, understood anyone who lives in the outer boroughs clearly made the wrong choice, because proximity to status and wealth are more important than ever.

  9. Why should guys like like El Chapo Guzman, associates of Osama Bin Laden, and ISIS sympathizers get comfy treatment in their prison state at the MCC?

    • Perhaps being a warden really sucks, and blacks fill the void, because it just pays.

  10. Good news, sort of. For your viewing pleasure I’ve been searching for a video of a hott chick shooting a Nitro Express elephant gun. No luck, however all isn’t lost. Here’s a quick clip of a middle aged woman shooting a monstrous 470 Nitro Express rifle. Hey, she may have been a hottie in her younger days, or she might have a hott 20-something daughter … heck, a fling with her today might be a lot of fun.
    And she handles this ridiculous rifle pretty.well too.

  11. Look, we’ll never know if he killed himself, or was offed. I say it was assisted suicide. Whatever.

    If Epstein had lived he would NEVER have said diddly.

    So please, no one has answered this: how does his being dead make it LESS likely for the truth to come out?

    Strikes me it makes it more likely, unless there is tempering w/the evidence. The photos.

    I’d have the Mob break into his mansion & impound everything.

  12. The Warden wouldn’t have anything to do with an operation like this. He’s too high up the food chain. If all you need is guards sent away and a camera malfunction you really just need one or possibly two lower mid level person or persons.

  13. That’s not the most important part of the article. This is:

    “The two staff members who were guarding the jail unit where Jeffrey Epstein apparently killed himself *fell asleep* and failed to check on him for about three hours, then falsified records to cover up their mistake, according to several law enforcement and prison officials with knowledge of the matter. ”

    The dog ate my homework.

    This doesn’t just smell – it ferments!

    • They were both working extreme overtime (16 straight hours) and it was in the middle of the night. That they fell asleep satisfies Occam’s Razor and Hanlon’s Razor.

        D’uh!

        You really are working overtime on this one, Lion.

      • Oh yeah, this too: why did they falsify the records?

        gothamette

        August 14, 2019 at EDT am

      • To cover up their incompetence. That part, actually, is a conspiracy. Conspiracies to cover up institutional stupidity or incompetence are pretty common.

      • I’ve been quite thrilled we’ve had “overtime” postings as I’ve fascinated with this case for years since I learned the Lolita Express had quite the passenger list. Sexy teenage Netflix dramas and D&D don’t return me here, but the chats on this certainly do.

      • Well, my question is – was this the only time they “fell asleep”?

        View the tapes that show when cells were checked during the previous 2 weeks (say).

        If they show that the same thing occurred on more than one night then I MIGHT buy the “fell asleep” trope.

        Simple, and then we don’t have to depend on Occam or Hanlon and any other Razor.

  14. “The warden, Lamine N’Diaye”

    A lot of Federal jobs become sinecures for specific ethnic groups. You ever notice how a lot of times the TSA people at a given airport are nearly all the same ethnic/racial group? Does wonders for keeping down corruption, I’m sure.

    If our Warden is Senegalese (as gothamette notes), my guess is that MANY of the guards are, as well, because that’s how we roll in Diverse America. And that makes both possibilities more likely: the guards were asleep (lazy and hyper-low conscientiousness) or the guards were bribed to be “asleep” (easily corrupted). Take your pick!

    The most interesting thing about the article, though, is that the authors are named Katie Benner and Danielle Ivory, and based on their photos both are obviously Asian. Our new Asian overlords are more numerous than they seem.

    • You don’t need a bribe to fall asleep in the middle of the night working a 16-hour double-shift.

      • Initially, the authorities wanted Epstein to be under house arrest, but they balked at the idea, because he was a flight risk.

        Billions spent with the TSA, and this is the kind of foolish BS buffoonery!

        Ok, what, who's this again?

        August 14, 2019 at EDT am

      • Now, could Epstein still commit suicide inside his Upper East Side Castle? One of the possibility why he wanted to off himself was because he was used to luxury and the MCC is sh!thole.

        Ok, what, who's this again?

        August 14, 2019 at EDT am

      • Yeah, but the bribe sure helps with your timing if you’re an assassin.

  15. Most jail wardens are incompetent, but suicides of high profile inmates are rare.

  16. #1 (by volume) Sailer commenter “Jack D”:

    To bring the saga of Epstein’s suicide up to date, see this:

    At the time of his suicide, I predicted that it would be determined that his guards were sleeping rather than checking on Epstein and falsifying their logs – that appears to have been borne out.

    I also said that this is the kind of stuff that happens in third world-ish places with brown populations and that you didn’t need to posit a grand conspiracy when simple incompetence would do. Well, it turns out that the name of the warden of MCC (who has now been transferred to a desk job) is Lamine N’Diaye. I believe that is a Senegalese name. It turns out that prison warden is another one of those jobs that Americans don’t want to do.

    catch my drift?

  17. I think coming out so strongly against conspiracy theories is premature. There is already some evidence that Epstein was murdered:

    https://www.foxnews.com/media/jeffrey-epstein-suicide-homicide-suspicious

    The proportion of intelligent felons who commit suicide prior to even being convicted is probably very low. And the evidence to date leans more to homicide than suicide. Moreover, in my view it is likely that Epstein would have spilled the beans to barter for a lower sentence, and we can be sure there are quite a few powerful people who would have benefited from Epstein being silenced. Let’s wait for more evidence before jumping to premature conclusions.

    • Fox News is prole. 25% of men in Thailand who hung themselves had that bone broken. This doesn’t prove or disprove anything.

      He was alone in his cell, no one could have killed him besides a corrupt and murdering prison guard, and that’s ridiculously unlikely.
