Oh for fuck’s sake!

Two cameras that malfunctioned outside the jail cell where financier Jeffrey Epstein died as he awaited trial on sex-trafficking charges have been sent to an FBI crime lab for examination, a law enforcement source told Reuters.
Epstein’s lawyers Reid Weingarten and Martin Weinberg told U.S. District Judge Richard Berman in Manhattan on Tuesday they had doubts about the New York City chief medical examiner’s conclusion that their client killed himself.
The two cameras were within view of the Manhattan jail cell where he was found dead on Aug. 10. A source earlier told Reuters two jail guards failed to follow a procedure overnight to make separate checks on all prisoners every 30 minutes.
He had been taken off suicide watch prior to his death.
The cameras were sent to Quantico, Virginia, site of a major FBI crime lab where agents and forensic scientists analyze evidence.
So to sum up Epstein was inexplicably taken off of suicide watch, his two guards “fell asleep” and failed to check up on him for at least two hours, and now the two cameras outside of his cell are said to have “malfunctioned?”
And we are expected to swallow this load of horseshit?
I have to admit that I am now less upset at the fact that somebody killed Jeffrey Epstien and tried to make it look like a suicide, than the fact that they were so sloppy at doing so.
If this were an episode of CSI they would have caught the killers before the first commercial break.
