WHY AREN’T THERE ANY REFERENCES TO GREGORY SHEVLIN IN DADE C.I. OFC. WILLIAMS’ HOUSING UNIT LOG?

In another blog I explained why inmate Gregory Shevlin was an important witness in the Darren Rainey murder and the events that happened with Shevlin on the night Rainey was murdered.  In the Dade County Florida State Attorney’s 3/17/17  decision to not prosecute the staff who murdered Rainey, their ‘Exhibit One’ is Ofc. Williams’ Housing Unit Log from the night Rainey was murdered.  That log makes no reference to anything with Shevlin.  Did Ofc. Williams and the Dade C.I. staff working on the night Rainey was killed intentionally not place any references to Shevlin in the Housing Unit Log?  Ofc. Williams was the Booth Ofc. for the 4:00 pm till 12:00 am shift.  Did the Booth Ofc. for the 12:00 am till 4:00 pm shift make any references to what happened with Shevlin on the night Rainey was killed in her log for 12:00 am till 4:00 pm on 6/24/12?  Did the Dade County State Attorney and Miami-Dade Police Department investigate this issue?  If they didn’t, why not?  The log would aid in proving the events that happened on the night  Rainey was killed.

“IF ANYBODY ELSE ASK TELL THEM OFC. CLARKE FOUND RAINEY DEAD ” “YEA. TELL THEM I FOUND HIM” THE WORDS OF OFCS. THOMPSON AND CLARKE ON 6/27/12.

On Saturday 6/23/12 when Darren Rainey was murdered, I was housed in Wing J3-101.  On Tuesday 6/26/12 I was moved from Wing J3-101 to Wing J1-117.  On Wednesday 6/27/12 Dade C.I. Major McCarter called me out to speak in one of the offices in Wing J1.  Several security staff were present to watch the Major question me.  

How I deemed the foregoing was the major was trying to intimidate me to not say anything that could hurt staff.  This caused me to do my best to get out of the office with him as quick as possible.  The longer I was in the office with the Major, the more security staff would think the chance existed that I slipped and said something I wasn’t supposed to say about the Darren Rainey murder or something else in the Dade C.I. TCU.  I was in and out of the office in approximately four minutes.  

From approximately thirteen years of incarceration and legal studies, I knew the Major to some degree shared liability and my experience told me to not tell FDC (the Major) that FDC (the Major’s staff) killed an inmate and I was a witness that was going to talk and tell everything, until I first told people in society what happened.  That way, if I was killed or mysteriously found dead, my family and people in society would know why.  I thought I did good with my answers to the Major.  The last question the Major asked me was if I had anything I wanted to say on anything.  I told him “yes, isn’t the only important thing that they did their thirty-minute security checks?”  

The Major responded, “yes – did they do their security checks?”

I responded, “yes.  Officer Thompson found Rainey dead approximately twenty or twenty-five minutes after the last officers were in the wing.”

The Major said “ok Hempstead.”

When shift changed at 4:00pm, I knew it was in my best interest to tell Ofcs. Clarke and Thompson as quick as possible about the Major questioning me.  By doing such, they’d think I didn’t have anything to hide.  The 4:00 pm till 12:00 am shift started with officers Clarke and Thompson counting.  Ofc. Clarke went by my cell too quick.  I wasn’t able to stop him.  I was able to stop Ofc. Thompson.  When I told Ofc. Thompson the questions Major McCarter asked me and my answers etc. to the Major, he said “you told the Major I found Rainey dead?”  I responded “yes.  Why?”  

Ofc. Thompson then yelled over to Ofc. Clarke and asked him to come over to where we were.  When Ofc. Clarke got to where we were at, Ofc. Thompson asked me to tell Ofc. Clarke everything I just told him (Ofc. Thompson.)  When I got done repeating everything, Ofc. Thompson said “you shouldn’t have told the Major I found Rainey.  If anybody else ask, tell them Ofc. Clarke found Rainey dead.”  Ofc. Clarke then said “yea.  Tell them I found him.”  

I responded, “why would you want me to say that?  The cameras can prove that didn’t happen.  There wasn’t a thirty-minute period between the time Ofc. Thompson found him and the time you came to the shower after Ofc. Thompson, and Rainey was reported dead.  Security Checks are every thirty minutes.  You won’t be able to say your check on Rainey was a Security Check.”  

Ofc. Clarke then stated again, “if anybody else ask tell them I found Rainey dead.”  

I responded, “I understand.”

To me. it was clear I was being told to lie and that there was a strong possibility these Ofcs. put on their Incident Reports that Ofc. Clarke found Rainey dead and not the truth which was that Ofc. Thompson actually found Rainey dead.  In 2012 and 2013, I mailed the Dade County, Florida State Attorney’s Office, Miami-Dade Police Department and Dade County Medical Examiner’s Office several letters wherein I explained the foregoing to them.  From January 2013 till around the middle of 2015 I filed several Florida Department of Corrections (FDC) Inmate Grievances explaining how these Ofcs. were directing me to lie if anybody else questioned me on who found Darren Rainey dead in the shower.  

In my letters and grievances I explained how Ofc. Thompson actually found Rainey dead, that he left Rainey dead on the shower floor for approximately eight minutes to return to the officer station and tell his co-workers Rainey was dead, and then Ofc. Clarke came back and acted like he just found Rainey dead.  Despite me consistently stating in my letters and grievances this issue since 2012, the Dade County State Attorney in her 3/17/17 written decision to not prosecute Rainey’s killers, decided to believe the lies of these two Ofcs. instead of the truth which the mounted security cameras in Wing J3 supported.  

In the Dade County Florida State Attorney’s 3/17/17 decision to not prosecute Rainey’s killers, the State Attorney has her timeline of several things she alleged happened in Wing J3 on the night Rainey was killed.  This timeline contends that at 9:13:32  Ofc. Thompson left from checking on Rainey in the shower and walked downstairs past my cell, and at 9:25:41 Ofc. Clarke entered Wing J3 to check on Rainey in the shower.  By this timeline there was a time period of twelve minutes nine seconds between Ofc. Thompson’s visit to the shower when he found Rainey dead, and when Ofc. Clarke came back to the shower to act like he found Rainey dead.  Ofc. Clarke said he found Rainey dead while doing a security check.  Security checks are done in FDC every thirty minutes, not every twelve to fifteen minutes.  Ofc. Clarke by FDC Rules had no reason to allegedly do a security check twelve minutes, nine seconds after Ofc. Thompson.  The only reason he had to go back to the shower Rainey was in, twelve minutes after Ofc. Thompson checked on Rainey in the shower, was because Ofc. Thompson told Ofc. Clark and his other co-workers Rainey was dead in the shower.  

The Dade County State Attorney in her 3/17/17 decision to not prosecute Rainey’s killers chose to believe the lies of these Ofcs. and say that what I said was incorrect because these Ofcs. said something different from what I said.  She said this even though:

(1)  she knew since 2012 that these Ofcs. tried to get me to lie and say Ofc. Clarke found Rainey dead and not Ofc. Thompson;

(2)  She knew that security checks in FDC were done every thirty minutes;

(3)  The Wing J3 cameras showed Ofc. Clarke returning to the shower twelve minutes after Ofc. Thompson, which means it wasn’t a security check that caused him to return to the shower Rainey was already dead in.  

Just like I refused to lie for Ofcs. Clarke and Thompson in 2012 (and since), I will not switch from the truth and tell a lie now.  Those who killed Rainey will have to answer to God for killing Rainey, and their lies.  The Dade County State Attorney and Medical Examiner and MDPD detectives assigned to the Rainey case will have to answer to God for not prosecuting Rainey’s killers and trying to cover up Rainey’s murder.  Life is short.  We’re born, we live, we die.  As long as I’m living by the Grace of God, I’ll strive to manifest my love to the Lord by keeping his commandments (John 14:15).

WHY DIDN’T THE DADE COUNTY FLORIDA STATE ATTORNEY’S OFFICE, MIAMI-DADE POLICE DEPARTMENT AND FLORIDA DEPARTMENT OF CORRECTIONS POLYGRAPH OR VOICE STRESS TEST ME OR ANYBODY IN THE DARREN RAINEY MURDER CASE?

In the last twenty-seven years of my life I’ve had a lot of communications with State and Federal agencies (not as a suspect) in more administrative and criminal investigations than I can remember.  Over these twenty-seven years I’ve learned that law enforcement agencies highly favor polygraph and voice-stress testing as investigative tools to test the credibility of their own staff, witnesses, suspects and those who aid them in investigations.  I’ve never been placed on a polygraph test over these years, but I have been administered voice-stress testing several times.  Also, over these last eighteen years of my life I’ve read several criminal cases where law enforcement agencies used these types of testing for investigative purposes.  Since Darren Rainey’s murder, I’ve asked the Dade County State Attorney’s Office, Miami-Dade Police Department, and Florida Department of Corrections several times to polygraph or voice-stress test me on the things I told them concerning Darren Rainey’s murder.  

These agencies consistently refused to do the foregoing, even though they each have the equipment to conduct said tests and the people trained in administering these tests.  In other words, they don’t have to hire somebody to administer these tests.  

Why do you think they consistently refused to polygraph or voice-stress test me concerning the things I told them about the Darren Rainey murder?  I believe they refused to do the foregoing because they knew beyond all doubt what I told them was the truth about Rainey’s murder and if they tested me, I’d be able to use the results from the test against them to push for a prosecution of those who killed Rainey.  

My 2013 FDC Inmate Grievances I filed on Rainey’s murder also document me asking to be polygraphed or voice-stress tested on what I said concerning Rainey’s murder.  Why didn’t these agencies polygraph or voice-stress test the Dade C.I. staff that killed Rainey and that were working on the night Rainey was killed?  I believe because these agencies knew those who killed Darren Rainey and the Dade C.I. staff that were working on the night Rainey was killed, were lying.  

Since these agencies have refused to polygraph or voice-stress test me, I’m asking for your help.  I believe if I can get anybody to polygraph or voice-stress test me, I can use the results of my testing, to further prove a cover-up, corruption and racism in the Darren Rainey murder case.  I’m absolutely positive I can pass a polygraph or voice-stress test concerning the things I said on the Darren Rainey murder.  If you’re reading this blog and you have the ability to polygraph or voice-stress test me, or arrange to have somebody administer one of these tests to me, will you please contact my friend Jeremy who manages this blog and tell him you’d like to help me with this matter?  Because I’m in prison, I have several restrictions placed on me.  Any law enforcement or State or Federal agency can administer one of these tests to me.  The only other people who can obtain authorization to have one of these tests administered to me are private investigators or contractors, lawyers and the media.  With the proper paperwork, any person can hire a private investigator or contractor to administer one of these tests to me.  If you can help me, I’d really appreciate it.  Also, if you can help me, think about your help as being a way of aiding in the fight for justice for the murder of Darren Rainey and as a way of aiding in the fight for the value of life.  The people I personally know and I, can’t make arrangements to have me receive one of these tests, because if we paid for me to receive one of these tests, people could say the person who gave me the test was bias in favor of my view of things.  I want an unbias tester to administer me one of these tests.  Please share this blog with your friends and anybody you believe would like to join us in our fight for the value of life.  Please sign our petition on Change.org entitled THE LIFE OF BLACK, MENTALLY DISABLED MUSLIM PRISONER DARREN RAINEY DOES MATTER.

TWO CRIME STOPPER CALLS CONTEND THE KKK WERE CONSPIRING TO KILL HAROLD HEMPSTEAD AND FLORIDA DEPARTMENT OF CORRECTIONS STAFF WERE ALTERING PAPERWORK ON HAROLD HEMPSTEAD

Image result for okeechobee correctional institution

On 5/23/16 when I was placed in confinement under investigation at Martin Correctional Institution, Cpt. Scarpatti told me that somebody called the Martin C.I. Warden and the Florida Department of Corrections (FDC) Main Office saying there was a conspiracy to kill me.  

On 5/24/16 I was transferred to Okeehobee C.I.  Over the next about six weeks, FDC made several inconsistent statements to people in society contending different reasons why I was placed in confinement on 5/23/16.  Not long after I arrived at Okeechobee C.I. I was interviewed by two men professing to be Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) agents, alleging they were investigating a conspiracy to kill me.  A few months after I arrived at Okeechobee C.I. I was advised by the Okeechobee C.I. Warden that two calls were made to the Treasure Coast Crime Stoppers contending that FDC prison staff were conspiring to kill me and FDC prison staff with the Inspector General’s Office were altering paperwork concerning me.  The paperwork he was reading from also made reference to prison staff who were allegedly conspiring to kill me being members of the KKK.  The two Crime Stoppers case numbers that appeared on the paperwork he was reading from were 104-65509 and 104-65662.  Because I was never placed in Confinement or Protection over the foregoing, I was caused to believe FDC was trying to sweep these alleged calls under the rug.  This caused me to think there might have been some truthfulness to these calls.  In December 2016, I was transferred from Okeechobee C.I. to Hardee C.I.  I felt that pursuing an investigation into these calls more seriously while at Hardee C.I. would be in my best interest so in January 2017 I drafted a sworn affidavit wherein I provided all the details I knew on these alleged calls.  I mailed this sworn affidavit to approximately two dozen people in the State and Federal Government, media, Civil Rights groups, etc..  As of the date that I’m writing this blog, I haven’t been able to find out who was behind these alleged calls to Crime Stoppers or any new information other than what I placed in my January 2017 sworn affidavit.  I mailed my sister Windy and Jeremy copies of this January 2017 sworn affidavit.  I don’t if this sworn affidavit has been placed on this blog yet.  If it has, I hope that my friend Jeremy provides a note at the end of this blog on how you can find this sworn affidavit on this blog-site.

The KKK is the oldest Caucasian brotherhood in Florida.  Since the KKK started being rebuilt in the nineteen twenties, they’ve strived to get their members in positions where they can be most effective in strengthening up their brotherhood and spreading their beliefs to Caucasians that can further their goals.  The KKK still has low-ranking knights and it is oftentimes the low-ranking knights that have done things that are deemed inappropriate, that have got the attention of the media (and government) and that oppose the primary goals of the KKK.  The KKK has bylaws that explain that the KKK is supposed to be a secret society and that only literature and activities approved by the Imperial Grand Wizard can be made known or public to those who are outside of the brotherhood.  It is a well-known fact by FDC staff and inmates that a very large quantity of FDC staff are members of the KKK and to think that the South  (and especially Florida) doesn’t no longer have a large number of racist and KKK members in it, is to not know the history of the South and Florida.

It is sad that there’s still so much racism in our country and especially in Florida but it’s a fact that we have to accept.  I know that my quest for justice for the murder of Darren Rainey and my activism against the unconstitutional conditions of FDC has brought a lot of attention and legal related issues to an agency that employs a large number of KKK members.  Did I upset the Florida KKK members by doing the foregoing?  I know that since 2014 FDC staff have called me all types of racial related names for taking a stand for a dead black man (Darren Rainey), such as ‘The Nigger Activist,’ ‘Nigger-Lover’ and ‘Nigger in White Man Skin, etc..  Also, I know that FDC is well aware of my communications with outside agencies concerning criminal activity and racism in FDC.  

If anyone reading this blog can help me obtain an audio copy or verbatim printout of the alleged Crime Stopper calls mentioned herein I’d greatly appreciate it.  

I’m a Protestant Reformed Presbyterian-in-America Christian who believes that I’m biblically commanded to take a stand for the value of life and help those who cannot help themselves.  I believe all that people are equal.  If Darren Rainey was an oriental man, Spanish man, a member of the KKK, or blue, green or orange man I still would of took a stand for the value of his life.  Why?  Because right is right and wrong is wrong.  Will you please share this blog with your friends and anybody you believe would like to join us in our fight for the value of life?  Will you please sign our petition on Change.org entitled THE LIFE OF BLACK, MENTALLY DISABLED MUSLIM PRISONER DARREN RAINEY DOES MATTER.

YOU WON’T KNOW UNLESS YOU ASK – CAN A PERSON SEE THROUGH A WHITE SHEET?

The Dade County, Florida State Attorney’s Office contended that on the night Darren Rainey was killed, a sheet was covering my cell door window at different times so I allegedly wasn’t able to see everything I said I seen.  They don’t contest that I seen certain things, just that the ‘sheet’ allegedly prohibited me from seeing everything.  

I found from many years of experience that people in society who’ve never been incarcerated in Florida and/or have no knowledge of the life of the incarcerated, are not aware of a lot of things that would at first sound outrageous to them if they didn’t first inquire for more details.  For instance, if I said I could be in a locked cell in a Confinement Unit with the whole wing of prisoners in their locked Confinement Cells and I could pass to other prisoners or obtain from other prisoners in their locked cells books, canteen items, clothes, writing supplies etc. without the help of any person outside the locked cells, most people in society would think that I was lying.  Especially if I said it didn’t matter if I or the other prisoner(s) were on the first or second tier.  Why would most think I was lying?  Because they don’t know what ‘fishing’ is.  If I said I could do the foregoing to anybody who was ever incarcerated in the Florida prison system (FDC,) they would know I could do such by ‘fishing.’  All Florida prisoners know what ‘fishing’ is.  

What is ‘fishing.’  In order to know what ‘fishing’ is I’ll first have to tell you how we make ‘fishing lines’ and a ‘car.’  

We make a ‘fishing line’ by taking thread out of a sheet, boxers, pants or shirt and tying all the strings together at their ends until we get our fishing line as long as we need it.  We make a ‘car’ by emptying all the toothpaste out of a toothpaste tube, cutting off the side of the tube from about an inch under where the toothpaste comes out, filling the empty tube with soap powder filed from a bar of soap and mixed with water.  We use the water to make the soap powder hard, the length and width of the tube and less than a quarter inch thick.  We then tie the tube closed (with the hard soap powder in it) with one of the ends of the fishing line.  We then have a ‘fishing line’ with a ‘car’ at the end of it.  With the foregoing, I can be in my locked cell, hold on to one side of my fishing line and push my car under my cell door in the direction to and under another inmate’s locked cell door.  We can then pass anything we want from my cell to his, or from his to mine, by tying it on the car or line.  The more experience you have fishing, the better you get at it.  We use ramps to fish from the upper tier to the lower tier.  We fish in our vents, and even in our toilets.  We fish out the top of our cell doors with wet toilet-paper balls we use to bounce off our cell doors until they fly upstairs.  The list goes on and on.

I’m going to name just a few more things we do in prison but I’m not going to explain the details on these because I don’t have the space to do it.

  1. Prisoners make wine from scratch.
  2. Prisoners make wall-safes to hide their contraband, with screws and locks.
  3. Prisoners can use a plastic mirror sold in the canteen to hide a cellphone or drugs in the water in a toilet.  You can look in the toilet and not see it and the phone or drugs won’t be flushed away.  

All these things sound strange to most people in society but if they were explained, like ‘fishing,’ they would then not sound so strange.  When the Miami-Dade Police Department interviewed me in June 2014, they were too busy trying to limit me on what I could or couldn’t say instead of asking me how I could see.  In June 2014 when I was interviewed I had been incarcerated for fifteen years straight.  After fifteen straight years of incarceration it was only common sense to me that inmates can see out their cell doors with a sheet covering the window.  Inmates placing sheets on their cell doors covering the windows is very common for inmates in Florida.  We place sheets on our cell doors every time we use the bathroom and every time we want privacy for any reason.  Having been incarcerated for fifteen years in June 2014, I had placed sheets on my cell doors one to five times a day every day for fifteen years straight.  Inmates in the Florida prison system (FDC) are issued two bed-sheets a piece.  Most inmates use one sheet to cover their bed and one sheet for the collar on their bed.  The collar-sheet is also used to cover the cell door window, to cover the shower door when they shower, etc..  Since the collar-sheet is used for so many different things, inmates usually strive to keep that sheet clean.  The more the sheet is washed, the thinner it gets.  If you were to take any white sheet off your bed, cover a window with it, stand on one side of the sheet with the light off and look through the sheet into a room (or outside) that is full of light, you’ll be able to see everything on the other side (even if the white sheet is new).  If the light is on in the room you’re in, and in the room on the other side of the sheet, you’ll still be able to see through the sheet.  

Even though this is common sense, the Dade County, Florida State Attorney contended I couldn’t see through the white sheet I allegedly had hanging in my cell door at different times on the night Rainey was killed.  

Not only was my sheet old, but it had been washed with bleach dozens if not hundreds of times.  The MDPD and Miami Dade State Attorney never once mentioned a sheet on my cell door at specific times on the night Rainey was killed.  I believe they never once questioned me about the foregoing because they had common sense to know anybody could see through a white sheet set up like I mentioned in this blog.  I also believe the Dade County State Attorney has attempted to twist this common sense fact and try to get people to believe I (and anybody else) could never see through a white sheet how I present the matter herein.  

This is just another matter that the Dade County State Attorney has attempted to twist in the Darren Rainey case.  The Rainey case should send out a clear statement to the people of Dade County, Florida and the World that the Dade County State Attorney will do everything possible to let those who killed Rainey continue to walk the streets of Dade County, Florida as free men.

WHY DIDN’T THE DADE COUNTY FLORIDA STATE ATTORNEY PROVIDE THE MIAMI HERALD NEWSPAPER WITH A CERTIFIED AUDIO COPY OF MY JUNE 2014 INTERVIEW WITH THE MIAMI-DADE POLICE DEPARTMENT ON THE DARREN RAINEY MURDER WHEN THE HERALD FIRST REQUESTED IT?

On 6/23/12 Darren Rainey was brutally killed in a shower that reached temperatures in excess of 160 degrees Fahrenheit in the Dade C.I. Transitional Care Unit (TCU).  The Miami Dade Police Department was assigned to investigate the Rainey murder that same night, but they didn’t actually start investigating said murder till June 2014.  What caused them to start their investigation in June 2014?  The Miami Herald newspaper published weeks of articles on how the police were refusing to investigate said murder.  

In June 2014, when police started their investigation I was one of the inmate-witnesses they interviewed in June 2014 about the Rainey murder.  Following the Dade County Florida State Attorney’s 3/17/17 decision not to prosecute in the Rainey case, the Miami Herald Newspaper ordered all the public records in the Rainey case which included audio copies of all the interviews the police conducted.  As of 4/19/17 I’ve been told by a Miami Herald representative that the Dade County State Attorney turned over audio copies of all the interviews the police conducted with everybody but me.  Also, I was told that the Dade County State Attorney said the alleged reason why her office didn’t provide an audio copy of my interview with the police was because they didn’t have it, and the MDPD was still in possession of it.  Now tell me this doesn’t sound like more foul play.  Why would the MDPD provide the audio recordings they conducted with everybody but me to the State Attorney?  Does the Dade County State Attorney have the audio recording of my interview, and they just don’t want to turn it over to the Herald because the State Attorney knows she lied several times on me in her 3/17/17 memorandum and to the media about things she alleged I told the police?  Does the Miami-Dade Police Department still have the audio recording of my interview and they don’t want to turn it over to the Dade County State Attorney, because the police told the Dade County State Attorney I told them things that I didn’t say?  Are the Dade County Florida State Attorney and/or MDPD refusing to provide an audio copy of my June 2014 interview with the police until one or both of these agencies can add or subtract things from my interview to suit their lies?  These are questions that I have about matters that I’d like to know.  There are several things that concern my June 2014 interview with the police that I don’t need to ask any questions on.  I know I didn’t say several things in my police interview that the Dade County State Attorney alleged I said since 3/17/17.  I know when the police were interviewing me they were doing their best to limit my answers and evidence I was trying to provide to the degree that I said something about it more than once.  I know that MDPD detective Sanchez told me prior to the interview that the Miami Herald had published several articles on the Rainey murder in the weeks prior to them interviewing me in June 2014, and later on I found out that the majority of those articles were on how the MDPD was refusing to do their job and investigate the Rainey murder.  I know these news articles got the police in some trouble and got them mad.  Other than all of the foregoing that I do know, I know one more thing which is: there’s no logical reason why the audio interview I had with the police wasn’t turned over to the media with all the other audio interviews but for foul play with the MDPD and Dade County Florida State Attorney.  

Is it too much to ask that the law be followed in the Rainey case?  Is it too much to expect Dade County officials to do their jobs that they swore oaths to do?
