1. Neither.

IMO: Trying to get transferred to a more comfy hospital room for psych evaluation.

2. Option 3: a ruse. An insincere "suicidal" gesture intended to garner sympathy and leniency

leniency in the terms of his pre-trial detention, that is.

5. That would be counterproductive

 


A suicide attempt doesn't get you better treatment. It gets you a paper suit and suicide watch. It sure as hell doesn't get you out, because being suicidal is an independent reason to keep you locked up.

I don't know why people think that a "suicide ploy" would be at all helpful to him in any way, other than sheer ignorance of how jails work.

6. And how much does Jeffrey Epstein know about how those policies work?

And how rational and calculated was his decision-making at that moment?

I don't think this avenue will be helpful to him either, but that is neither here nor there when addressing what happened. Regardless of its counterproductiveness, I think it is more likely he was desperate to change *anything* about his circumstances than he was actually expecting to die.
