      Drugged? unless it was self induced. Falling asleep when working multiple overtimes or working forced overtime is not that uncommon. Especially on the 12-8 shift. The logs where they document their rounds is on a sheet of paper each officer keeps and turns in at the end of their shifts.Everybody keeps saying the cameras were not functioning but in the same breath saying that unnamed sources claim there is evidence on video they were not making all there rounds like their log indicated they did. Both the officer and non correctional staff member who were on duty are both on Admin leave pending further action, which most likely be a firing.

        Be interesting to compare the records from that fateful night to those of previous nights.

        Did they fall asleep on those nights as well? Do the cameras show that they missed checking then as well?
        Or was this the only night shift that they conveniently “fell asleep”?
        Were the cameras “malfuctioning” prior to Friday night? For how long?

        • gda53, I’ve been wondering who and how many guards were PAID to take off or call off “sick” so others needed to work overtime. So overtime could be used as an excuse. After all the first “suicide attempt was either a dry run or a failed arkacide.

            Overtime is a daily occurrence at most federal prisons because of the staffing shortage. It is also a daily occurrence to pull non correction staff from their other jobs to work a correctional post. MCC NY has even more problems than most because no one wants to work there. Evey one wants to work in the NY State Prisons because they pay more.

          Remember, we’re talking buerocracy, NOT private industry. Probably 1/2 the cameras were NOT working, on a regular basis, the guards knew the supervisors didn’t sit and fast forward thru the ‘tapes’every day, to make sure they actually made their rounds.

          Private security guards have a key, and every so often, on their rounds, there is a metal box. They put the key in and turn it, it ‘records’the time.

          Hence, they can’t sleep through their shift, as long as their supervisor checks the logs from the boxes.

          Guarding, whether prisoners in their cells, or valuables in a building, is REALLY boring.

          And Government is notoriously innefficient, and at LEAST 10-15 years behind. As an example, it wouldn’t surprise me, at all if their system actually WAS on old school video tapes.

          Former Federal guard is saying the whole Federal prison system is basically decrepit, innefficient, full of cronyism, etc.

          Its possible he did suicide, and it was incompetence and not some mission impossible type operation.

          On the other hand, if Mr. Phelps actually knew the true state of affairs as to how the prison operated, he could have felt the job was beneath him.

          “Hell, anyone can waltz in there and take this guy out! We don’t even need to wear masks and imitate anyone! Boring!”

            I have never worked at the MCC NY, but the Federal Prison Hospital I worked in no one could turn off any camera except the IT Techs when updating software. Our control room along with the shift LT have access to all the cameras in the prison which they pull up from their computer. The Bureau of Prisons have standardized rules and regulations they all work by including updates in electronics and software. Our cameras were fully digitized in the early 2000’s along with every federal prison in the country. Believe me, keeping the cameras functioning properly was taken seriously, not because of the inmates as much as keeping tabs on staff.

              And I know that prisons, in general ARE,a place for corruption, because the public generally isn’t looking, and who are prisoners going to tell?

      I’ve never heard Curt’s show, but of course I remember him well as a Phillies pitcher. I remember how he’d stay in the dugout with his head down and put that towel over his head when Mitch Williams would come out to relieve him. Of course, Mitch (aka Wild Thing) stank on ice in tight situations, and Curt was just doing what we all felt like doing, but the towel thing was a classless act and showed him not only to be a poor sport, but also a really lousy teammate. On the other hand, not playing well with professional politicians is a definite resume enhancer so it probably wouldn’t be a bad thing if the people of Arizona were to send Curt to Washington…

            I explain it differently than you do. I don’t think Hannity is that bright. I think he’s very average in intelligence and not capable of thinking critically. A good example is when he has a guest on who is making a good point and Hannity, instead of engaging with the guest and talking about the point being made, will go back to his list of questions and just move down the road. He can’t have a good intellectual discussion with his guests.

            All I wanted to say was that I was thinking the same thing. If Fredo would have taken a swing, my thoughts were that he would have taken a beating. The “kid” seemed to know what he was doing. Both verbally in keeping his calm and ensuring that he wasn’t getting himself into legal trouble, but also physically. He could handle himself just fine. I think he was waiting for that first swing to act.

            By the end of the video, I think even Fredo figured out what his handler knew all along. Just get out of there intact…

      Wikipedia— ish It’s already misrepresenting Mr.Cuccinelli.

      Emma Lazarus (1849–1887) wrote the poem in 1883 to raise money for the construction of a pedestal for the Statue of Liberty. In 1903, the poem was cast onto a bronze plaque and mounted inside the pedestal’s lower level.
      After the pedestal was fully funded in August 1885, the poem was forgotten and played no role at the opening of the statue in 1886.
      In 1901, Lazarus’s friend Georgina Schuyler began an effort to memorialize Lazarus and her poem, which succeeded in 1903 when a plaque bearing the text of the poem was put on the inner wall of the pedestal of the Statue of Liberty.

      The poor have never been excluded from immigrating here. Traditionally and legally, everyone, rich and poor, went through the legal process. Not everyone was allowed in. If they qualified, poor educated and uneducated workers, farmers, professionals and well-off entrepreneurs were welcomed.

      Everyone was expected to be completely self-sufficient or have someone already here willing to aid or care for them, if incapable of doing so themselves, temporarily or permanently. None expected the taxpayer to provide for their needs. Everyone was expected to assimilate, to embrace the Constitution and its principles and to abide by our laws. Every generation worked so their children would have a better life, to be able to take the next step up the ladder in education, business, entrepreneurship, etc., something they were free to do in this country.

      In the early 20th Century, immigration was paused for around 40 years to give time to allow large numbers of legal immigrants to assimilate.

      Burnett’s argument about her “poor” grandparents is non-sequitur. In fact, her grandparents came here under the very laws and rules she now claims are un-American…or un-Statue of Liberty or something.

      I don’t know the exact particulars of these guards but I have more than a passing interest in NY State civil service workers being the son of a Suffolk County police captain.. Until recently, and maybe true today, police and prison guard’s retirement was based on 1 year’s (NYC) or 3 years’ (Suffolk Co. for example) gross pay, including overtime. Your retirement in NYC used to be, and might still be, HALF of your single highest year’s gross. Many cops in the NYPD would join at 21 and retire after 20 years making more than their normal paycheck. They’d typically work all the overtime they could their last year, sleeping in jail cells and patrol cars to stay on the clock. The overtime and shift differential would end up doubling, or more, their pay for that year, so half of that would give them their full pay or more for retirement. When retired, they pay NO NYS income tax. I believe there are NY policemen that post here so an update would be appreciated. I wonder if Epstein’s “guards” were coming up on retirement and that’s why they worked so much overtime???

    “While universal background checks are pushed as a response to the El Paso and Dayton shooting attacks, it should be remembered that such checks are unenforceable without a gun registry.
    In other words, once such checks are in place, it is only a matter of time before lawmakers — in one party or the other — suggest a loose registration scheme. They will most likely do this in the days after the first mass public attack that occurs once universal background checks are the law of the land.

    Think about it — universal background checks presume that the government knows about every gun sale, everywhere, at every time. That is the very meaning of the “universal” system — that all sales are covered by one background check.

    The fact is that the government does not know where the vast majority of guns are at this very moment. Thus, as mass public attacks and/or high-profile shootings continue, they will claim we need a registry so the government knows where every gun is and can, therefore, know if any gun is changing hands without a background check.”

    Confiscation cannot occur without knowledge of the Location. therefore,
    Registration is the First Step in Confiscation.

Over 22 sheriffs offices stated that the new law is unenforceable as there is no way to verify if a sale or transfer ever happened unless it went directly through a FFL.

      No formal procedures or processes exist for FFL’s to maintain any records for background checks that do not involve the transfer of a gun other than from their own inventory. With Lujan-Grisham as Governor we can expect she will sign any gun legislation that is remotely possible… With Democrat controlled governor, and legislature -Republicans have no chance in this state any longer… It will go the way of California very quickly and drive conservatives out of the state in short order..

      We expect significant increases in taxes and unending “climate change” legislation and anti-oil and gas regulations (even though over 35% of our state budget comes from oil and gas royalties)… This state is in deep trouble … the news media does not report on anything other than liberal positions and slams anything contrary to the democrat talking points.

        There is hope if you’re willing to move. States like Idaho, Wyoming, N & S Dakota…and others…are aggressively passing legislation to nullify federal gun regulations and create a “constitutional carry” environment for their residents. As a sovereign State, NM has every right to implode via socialism…and possibly rename itself as New Venezuela.

      JCM, in my State, you simply obtain a CCL, no gun purchase.
      If you have a CCL, you can go to a gun shop and buy whatever you wish w/o an incidental background check.

      the gun purchase is uncoupled from the background check.
      I suspect many do this…a highly recommended course of action.
      if a “crisis” unfolds, you are then in a position to immediately buy whatever is stocked at your local shop…and suitable ammunition…and bring them home with you.
      ps: love the quote from Curran.

    there’s one thing I have (PERSONALLY) come to understand. There is no justice nor the “Rule of Law” and certainly, as it is said the first A, none of that exist today:

    “The right to petition the government for a redress of grievances guarantees people the right to ask the government to provide relief for a wrong through the courts (litigation) or other governmental action. It works with the right of assembly by allowing people to join together and seek change from the government.”

    If fact this is the unwanted foster child of the 1st A, and it doesn’t matter what level of Govt (City, County, State, FEDERAL). It’s a bunch of old world words that means zilch today.
    This President has done great improvements to the upper echelon of Fed Govt but it surely hasn’t trickled down to the seedy underbelly that is the further reaches of the DEEP STATE (just barely put a scratch on the surface of the BUREAUCRACY). To those who work in GOVERNMENT, “WE THE PEOPLE,” are the ENEMY!!!!!

    FTA “According to far-left CNN and imploding Democrat presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke, Breitbart News, Fox News, and Sinclair News are terrorist organizations sowing “seeds of terror.”
    And when you label an American, or an American company, a terrorist organization, you are deliberately painting a target on their back and calling for violence against them…
    Here’s a quick rundown of CNN’s documented history of violence:
    Antifa fights for a “good cause.”
    Antifa’s fight “is right.”
    Antifa’s punches are more “equal morally” than others.
    Antifa is “on the side of right.””
    This is just a partial list! Read the rest they’re unbelievably wanting violence!

    The left continues to pour gasoline on Republicans and conservatives in the hope of inciting violence to be blamed on us by the msm. What will be the spark or match that will set it all off I don’t know. My guess is will be some protestors at a Trump rally.

    “Democratic New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker’s New Hampshire campaign director and communications director called Tuesday for the cancellation of President Donald Trump’s upcoming rally in their state — and future rallies as well. Claiming that the president’s rallies were “a breeding ground for racism and bigotry that inspire white nationalist attacks like the one in El Paso on Saturday,” Booker’s NH state campaign director Erin Turmelle called for the upcoming rally in Manchester to be canceled. She also hinted that the cancellation of other rallies should be under consideration as well, saying, “They are despicable and have no place in New Hampshire, or anywhere in our country.” – Virginia Kruta Daily Caller

      I do respect Tucker for covering things that the rest of MSM does not cover. That being said, the guy can never give any credit nor say anything good about President Trump. He is of the idea, like all the rest of them, that POTUS is an ogre and would rather analyse the left and avoid defending POTUS because he makes them feel ‘weird’. Like I said, I like Tucker to an extent, but he is a silver spoon like the rest of them that does not understand POTUS and never even tried to begin with.

      Same tired format, same leftist guests, same old same old. What really takes the cake though is I have never seen Tucker defend the President on any meaningful level. Sure he’ll say he’s not a white supremacist, but if a guest says he’s an idiot Tucker will be the one to go “That may be true, but I’m not defending the President” like he always does.

      Guy doesn’t get that his success is directly born from Donald Trump’s movement, like the rest of them Hannity Levin Shapiro, on and on etc. The sooner they admit that to themselves the better, but they wont because MSM types are all about money and ego.

    Has anyone done the math of just the US total cost if we went to….

    1) Medicare for all

    2) Green deal

    3) Free College

    Then take these three annual expenses and divides by the number of adults in the country to get the per person bill that each American adult will get.

    I’d be curious if this number would not at least be a $50,000 per person charge.

    So imagine on Jan 1 of every year the government send you an invoice for $50,000 when the average American can’t come up with $2,000 for an emergency.

    This is how PT needs to speak IMO. Put everything the Dems want to give away into terms of what it will cost each American.

      Cost is irrelevant. In fact, the globalist/socialists would prefer we quibble over costs than contemplate the true goals of the initiatives you’ve cited.

      1) Medicare for all = complete dependency on the central government for health and life.

      2) Green deal = motivation for the electorate to succumb to massive regulations in the name of “saving the planet.” This will destroy competition and the free market and make the electorate ripe for globalism/socialism/feudalism.

      3) Free college = free indoctrination to facilitate the first two

    The left is desperate to blame conservative media and Trump supporters for mass shootings so as to justify silencing them on key issues, especially illegal immigration and our open southern border. I took a quick look at the El Paso shooter’s manifesto at the time, and noticed his comments about the US being the subject of an invasion from the South.

    The thing is, he was right about that. We ARE being invaded. Just google “Mexican reconquista,” or maybe read about it in that mouthpiece for white supremacy The New York Times:

    The problem was not recognizing the fact of the invasion, but the shooter’s immoral response to it.

    The left is very good at identifying problems, but always comes up with the same wrong-headed solution (totalitarian collectivism). Similarly, those who are mentally mis-wired or otherwise socially and morally deficient often resort to violence as the solution for every hurt and injustice. The same moral deficiency that led to the recently publicized mass shootings also lead daily to the shootings in the ghettos of Chicago, often involving multiple victims and therefore also qualifying as mass shootings, although you won’t see 12 hours of non-stop coverage of them on CNN.

    Naming the invasion is not the problem. The shooter’s immoral solution was the problem.
