- Jeffrey Epstein documentary “Filthy Rich” is out on Netflix.
- His “outrageous deal” is highlighted, at a time when Americans have witnessed some outrageously tragic deals.
- This contrast of justice could be too much for the public to accept.
The documentary “Filthy Rich” just hit Netflix. It documents the secret and seedy underworld of billionaire Jeffrey Epstein, as told by his victims.
It’s infuriating enough that Epstein is no longer alive to face justice. It’s even more upsetting that he was quite alive when he evaded justice in 2007.
Facing 53-pages of federal sex trafficking charges, Epstein received the “deal of a lifetime” from federal prosecutor Alex Acosta. He served minimal jail time and had his records sealed.
The documentary comes out at a time when someone else received the “deal of a lifetime.” His name is George Lloyd. He was choked to death under the knee of a Minneapolis police officer.
Jeffrey Epstein Gets His ‘Outrageous’ Deal
Jeffrey Epstein was suspected of trafficking underage girls from his home in New Mexico, and his island in the Caribbean.
In 2006, he was charged with multiple accounts of unlawful sex with a minor. The FBI even investigated him for “child prostitution.”
The prosecution had substantial evidence.
According to retired Palm Beach Police Chief Michael Reiter, who supervised the investigation,
This was not a ‘he said, she said’ situation. This was 50-something ‘shes’ and one ‘he’ — and the ‘shes’ all basically told the same story.
Epstein could have ended up in federal prison for the rest of his life.
But he didn’t. He didn’t come close.
He barely spent more than a year in jail. The FBI probe was shut down. Strangely, the deal even granted immunity to “any potential co-conspirators.”
