'You've got to send them to jail,' Biden joked.

    While the jury was busy hearing Ghislaine Maxwell’s case in her recently concluded trial, there was some other action related to her perverted boss taking place quietly in the background. Insider is reporting that the charges against Tova Noel and Michael Thomas, the guards charged with sleeping on the job while Epstein supposedly killed himself, were dropped. The timing of this decision was certainly curious, as was the fact that the decision to drop the charges wasn’t made public for more than two weeks. A public status conference for the case against the guards had been scheduled for December 15th,...

Immigrant rights and civil liberties groups had been pushing for the change, arguing the weekly compilations that include arrestees’ addresses and other details could allow U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to target immigrants for deportation and raise privacy concerns.

That fiasco was said by authorities to have involved an unknown woman and a vehicle which ended up off the road. During that incident, a belligerent Jones was caught on video arguing with state troopers and at times hurling racial slurs toward them when the authorities showed...
