On June 23, 2012 poor, black, mentally disabled Muslim inmate Rainey was brutally killed in a shower in the Dade Correctional Institution TCU that reached temperatures (according to Dade C.I. Cpt. Dixon) of 160° F.
On May 19, 2014 I was transferred from Dade C.I. after the media started writing articles on this brutal murder.
In the end of 2014 or beginning of 2015 my sister Windy Hempstead, who runs the blog Help My Brother Harold Hempstead @ WordPress.com, read me a heavily redacted report from somewhere on the internet that the Florida Department of Corrections (FDC) Inspector General’s Office released concerning the Darren Rainey murder. Even though the report was heavily redacted, it did state something of importance concerning the footage from the mounted security cameras in the wing Rainey was killed in. The report contended that the camera system malfunctioned as soon as the officer who killed Rainey got Rainey to the top of the stairs where the shower was located.
In the Dade County State Attorney’s 3/17/17 memorandum stating they are not going to prosecute those who killed Rainey, they contend they have the footage from the cameras that the FDC Inspector General’s office said malfunctioned.
Did the camera system really malfunction or did the FDC Inspector General’s office lie in their report? With the history that the FDC Inspector General’s Office has, I believe they lied and told the Miami-Dade Police Department (MDPD) and others that the camera system malfunctioned until they could tamper with it and after they were done tampering with it they turned it over to the MDPD. Also I believe there’s evidence in possession of the Dade County State Attorney, MDPD and FDC that proves this.
Since an FDC Inspector General’s report clearly says that the cameras malfunctioned on the night Rainey was killed and the Dade County Florida State Attorney says they have the footage, it is obvious that the FDC Inspector General’s Office lied. The agency that had all the liability and who had the footage lied. What did FDC and the FDC Inspector General’s Office do to the footage before they turned it over to the MDPD? Please read all the Miami Herald newspaper articles on the FDC Inspector General’s Office and then I’d like for you to please let me know if you think the FDC Inspector General’s Office would or wouldn’t tamper with the camera footage in the Darren Rainey murder case.
