Kirsters Baish’s Opinion, Speculation And Analysis: Former New York Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik sat down with Fox News host Sean Hannity on Monday to speak on the untimely death of multi-millionaire/close Clinton family friend, and accused pedophile, Jeffrey Epstein. Epstein was found hung in his New York City jail cell on Saturday morning.
The former NYPD Commissioner, who is familiar with the facility, also headed the Department of Prisons in New York for six years, which involved roughly 133,000 inmate admissions annually.
Bernard Kerik told Hannity that there is most likely video surveillance taken from the hallway outside of the multimillionaire’s prison cell leading up to the time of his death.
Bernard Kerik explained, “I think there is a couple things the Attorney General is going to focus on, primarily Sean. Who authorized him to come off of suicide watch? Was he put in a buddy system? Was there a secondary system in that cell? The reporting is, there was. That person was removed. I can tell you I know that housing area that he was in quite well. In the northside and the southside of the hallway where tho se cells are, there are cameras overhead. So you’ll be able to see who went in the cell, who came out of the cell. There’s no camera facing in the cell. So you wouldn’t see inside.”
Sean Hannity answered, “But we would know the time he was last checked on…”
Kerik explained, “Sean, that area that he was in, 9 South, historically those bed checks are 15 to 30 minutes. A bed check is looking into a cell, identifying the person that’s in there and they have to guarantee that they’re breathing. If they can’t see that they’re breathing, once they see the body they have to wake the person up to make sure they’re alive. I cn tell you if those checks were not done, that’s going to be one of the irregularities that the Attorney General’s talking about.”
