Peeking Behind the Bars at Epstein's Jail
August 27, 2019
Hosted by Dr. Carole Lieberman
Today we are piercing the veil of silence of the Metropolitan Correctional Center, by going behind the bars with guest Ziv Cohen, M.D., who has worked as a forensic psychiatrist examining inmates there. This is the jail whose incompetence allowed inmate Jeffrey Epstein to carry out his suicidal plans. Regardless of the criminal acts Epstein is accused of, no inmate deserves his lethal fate. Despite his risk factors for suicide, such as his fall from power and an opulent life to a jail cell, charged as a pedophile, public disgrace, and most significantly a recent prior suicide attempt, Epsteins fate was left to a doctoral-level psychologist-meaning an unlicensed one, who obviously did not have enough experience to recognize that he needed to be on 24/7 suicide watch, instead of being left in his cell with a bedsheet and a bunk bed to hang it from-with only 30-minute checks and guards who did not even do that. Mental health services in jails and prisons need to be upgraded for all inmates
