    It's because Epstein didn't kill himself

      BS.  WERE you there to se him NOT commit suicide?  ===  Then YOU must know who killed him.  Go to the police and give YOUR evidence.

    too much of a convenient coincidence favoring people who have way too much to lose.   And Epstein did not just die, he died with many suspicious coincidences that helped insure we could not know what actually happened, like not having the required guards around, not having cameras around his cell area to know the goings ons etc...

    The Holmesian approach can work in either direction in this case, that after you've eliminated all other possibilities, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth. Both murder and suicide are equally possible and improbable.

    For the same reason they think vaccines cause autism, the moon landing didn't happen, 9/11 was an inside job, and that Ukraine is hiding some giant computer server.  There are 3 main driving factors:

    * A need for understanding and consistency (epistemic)

    * A need for control (existential)

    * A need to belong or feel special (social)

    And the situation fits the criteria/factors that increase the likelihood of conspiracy belief:

    * Situations involves large-scale events, where more mundane or small-scale explanations seem inadequate

    * Situations where people experience distress over uncertainty

    There is also a connection between conspiracy beliefs and educational levels. Lower educational status tends to be associated with higher levels of conspiracy belief.  And people who feel psychologically and sociopolitically disempowered are more likely to believe in conspiracy theories.

    People Believe In Conspiracies When:

    * They are on the “losing” side of a political issue

    * They have a lower social status due to income or ethnicity

    * They have experienced social ostracism

    * They are prejudiced against “enemy” groups they perceive as powerful

    People who feel that they or their social group have been victimized are also less likely to believe in government institutions and more likely to believe in conspiracies.

    Confirmation bias can also play a role because people are naturally inclined to seek out information that confirms their existing beliefs. So when they run across a theory that supports something that they already think is true, they are more likely to believe the information is also true.

    I really don't care. I'm glad he's dead.

    2 guards of a suicide watch prisoner decide to go take a nap at the same time---all the cameras stopped working--his cellmate was suddenly moved out--he tied a sheet only 3 feet high UNDER the top bunk when he is a 6 foot tall man--bones in his neck were crushed which is not possible with regular hanging. NY's top medical examiner said that this was rushed through autopsy and no way was this really suicide.There are even other factors also. Plus he knew world politicians and wealthy men that had been with children and everyone wanted him silenced. All that would have come out if he lived. THAT is why no one believes this was suicide.

    I buy it. He had every reason to commit suicide. He was losing his freedom, status , use of his money, power and access to women.

    I think that he decided that it wasn't worth it. Why is that so hard to believe?

    Of course, many do believe that Hillary snuck into his cell and put him to sleep - but, it doesn't seem likely.

    Personally I don't care.  He was a perv.  He should be dead. ===  Many Republicans seem to be caught up in trying to make a connection between Epstein and the Clintons.  If they don't make the connection these people will then claim that the media is hiding something.  Too many people can't accept the truth.

      Bill Clinton flew on Epsteins private plane to pedo island over 20 times. Gee wonder why people would think the Clintons are involved?

    Because we know better. When the elite are looking to go down the person with the dirt dies. It's been that way since governments came into existence and it's that way in the US too.
