Former New York Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik joined Sean Hannity on Monday to discuss the surprise death of multi-millionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein on Saturday in the Metropolitan Correctional Center (MCC) in Lower Manhattan.
Kerik, as the former NYPD Commissioner, is very familiar with the prison. Kerik also ran the Department of Prisons in New York for six years involving about 133,000 inmate admissions a year.
Bernard Kerik told Sean there should be video from the hallway outside of Epstein’s prison cell.
Bernard Kerik: 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 those 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: But we would know the time he was last checked on…
Bernard Kerik: 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.
