I think he was provided an opportunity to kill himself. But beyond that, who knows? He could have started making plans upon realizing his arrest was imminent, or he could have later reached out to some “friends” who were only happy to assist. Or it could have been his “friends” who got the ball rolling — we simply do not know.
This was a man who had nothing left to live for, who was destined to die in prison — most likely violently after a period of sustained abuse. Why bother killing him when it would be so much easier to just let him off himself?
During the Obama administration, one in three Americans were unable to name the Vice President of the United States.
It would appear that many Americans are still unaware of who served as Obama’s VP from 2009 to 2016.
This is why Bernie Sanders needs to receive the Democratic nomination. Brave #resisters aren’t about to forget Bernie’s name and accidentally vote for Trump any more than Bernie is about to forget his principles and throw in with a Corporate Democrat like Hillary.
Full disclosure: I’m not particularly happy with Trump, but I don’t have anything against the man personally, and I wouldn’t resort to base attacks even if I did. I’ve never spoken one word against Hillary or Obama except to criticize their ideologies and the decisions they’ve made.
