Prison cheifs are warning that serial rapist Harvey Weinstein could “try to kill himself like Jeffrey Epstein” while in jail.
According to New York City prison officials, Weinstein needs “round the clock surveillance” in case another high-profile Clinton-linked inmate is found dead in their jail cell.
Now, over fears of a repeat of Epstein’s death, calls are being made for Weinstein to be kept in a private section for his own safety.
Tmz.com reports: High-ranking officials at NYC’s Department of Corrections tell TMZ … there’s anxiety running through the ranks about another “Epstein Incident” and the scrutiny that would follow if HW offed himself on their watch, which is why an action plan is in place.
For starters, we’re told one possibility is that Weinstein will be housed in a private section of Rikers Island’s North Infirmary Command, which is for high-profile inmates or guys with health issues — Harvey fits both. He could land in the “ANNEX,” with the other dudes falling apart.
Once he’s there and all checked in, our sources say HW will probably get his own cell with round-the-clock surveillance cameras watching his every move. And, when he’s out walking around, we’re told he’ll have DOC officials escorting him. There’s a reason for that.
