In 2010 or 2011 it was on the news that a man in central Florida was talking about burning a Koran on TV.  This became such a big issue that people across the World were commenting on it.  However, when the New Yorker magazine published an article in April 2016 entitled ‘Madness’,  and it mentioned Darren Rainey’s Koran being thrown in the trash, I didn’t hear any comments on it.  I’m not a Muslim but to me there are certain things that are right and certain things that are wrong.  To me, the man in 2010 or 2011 in central Florida that was talking about burning a Koran on TV was wrong.  To me, it was wrong for Dade Correctional Institution Staff to throw Darren Rainey’s Koran in the trash.  What do you think?  Do you think it’s wrong for a person to be disrespectful to another person’s religion by burning or throwing in the trash the primary religious book that person believes in?  Do you think it’s wrong that Dade Correctional Institution staff threw Darren Rainey’s Koran in the trash?  Do you think it’s wrong that Dade County State Attorney Ms Katherine Rundle said on March 17th, 2017 that she’s not going to prosecute Darren Rainey’s killers?

  1. Reblogged this on Helpmybrotherharoldhempstead's Blog and commented:
    They threw Darren Rainey’s Koran away most likely to punish a sick man or because it wasn’t a christian Bible,I heard staff had said 1 of the pages in his Koran had feces on it and that’s the reason these people used for throwing it away. That Koran belonged to Mr.Rainey and no one else so even if this is truthful what right does it give staff to throw it away?It wasn’t a Koran that was in a common area in the prison where other people could touch it, and if this is the truth why didn’t they just get a little bleach and some rags and clean the page? Why not because they didn’t care!They knew how much that Koran meant to Darren Rainey and they didn’t care!They wanted to hurt him,make him sad and upset him,these guards loved to hurt the most vulnerable inmates their and then they’d laugh about it!!!
