POLYGRAPH ROLAND CLARKE ON THE KILLING OF DARREN RAINEY

Attn:  Oliver G Gilbert III – Mayor of Miami Gardens – Florida – USA          13:2:2019
Re:  Roland Clarke – Darren Rainey – Harold Hempstead
Dear Mayor Gilbert –
I am writing to you from Great Britain to express my deep concern over the fact that Roland Clarke is working for Miami Gardens Police Department –
For some years I have been working on the case of Darren Rainey – the mentally-disturbed 50 year-old black Muslim man who died under torture at Dade CI on 23rd June 2012 – Mr Rainey was steamed to death in a specially adapted shower which reached temperatures of over 160 degrees Fahrenheit –
I have been in regular contact with Harold Hempstead – the primary witness to the killing of Darren Rainey and have learned a great deal about the circumstances of the case –
As you are probably aware – State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle closed the case on 17th March 2017 – finding no wrong-doing and bringing no prosecutions or other disciplinary action against the perpetrators –  I am aware of the official verdict and exactly how the case was handled –
The following matters are now public knowledge:
Harold Hempstead has audio recordings of Roland Clarke admitting to using the adapted shower to punish mentally-disabled prisoners at Dade CI Transitional Care Unit –
The recordings also feature Roland Clarke admitting that he killed Darren Rainey –
The video evidence submitted by Attorney Rundle was fraudulent and an attempt to pervert the course of justice through perjury –  As explained on his blog-site– Hempstead describes how the time and ID stamps on the video are from a different wing of the prison – NOT wing J-3 where the torture and killing actually occurred –
I suggest that Ms Rundle be removed from office and prosecuted for the crime of deliberately misleading a jury with irrelevant evidence –
Even though he has yet to be charged with any offence over the torture of at least five mental patients and the killing of Darren Rainey – I suggest that Roland Clarke is a huge discredit to the reputation not only of the police but also to the city of Miami Gardens – After killing Darren Rainey – Clarke actually boasted that he-d got away with it and that Harold Hempstead was his “co-defendant” – as at the time he believed that Hempstead was gong to cooperate with him and help cover up the crime –  In fact the opposite happened and Harold Hempstead has since dedicated his life to bringing justice to the case of Darren Rainey –   One of his suggestions in pursuit of this justice is that Roland Clarke should be given a polygraph or voice-stress test and questioned over his part in the death of Darren Rainey and the torturing of several other men in the super-heated steam-chamber –
I am asking you sincerely to do just this and interview Roland Clarke on the above matters – I believe – in view of the irrefutable evidence that Harold Hempstead has which proves beyond any doubt that the torture and killing of Darren Rainey was crudely covered up in an outrageous miscarriage of justice – I believe that there will eventually be a re-trial and this time justice will be served –  It would do credit to the authorities of Miami Gardens if they were to take a proactive stance and interview Roland Clarke and establish the truth about the events of 23rd June 2012 –
To quote from a recent letter from Harold Hempstead:  “In other words – a killer who is responsible for torturing mentally disabled inmates is employed for the Miami Gardens Police Department”
I am sure it is in the public interest to investigate Roland Clarke – and follow this up by taking appropriate action – Does Miami Gardens really want to be associated with a man like Roland Clarke~
As part of his campaign for justice for Darren Rainey – who died a terrible death – Harold Hempstead has just published a book: “DEPARTMENT OF CORRUPTION – Darren Rainey – The Untold Story” which is essentially 400 pages of extremely detailed information on every aspect of the case – He has written several other books on this and related subjects which are all due for publication imminently –  He is also a qualified Para-Legal and a Minister of the Church and has been trained by the police in evidence-collection since the age of 13-
I ask you most sincerely to look into these matters I have raised and take action –
With best wishes –

WILL YOU PLEASE ASK MIAMI GARDENS FLORIDA MAYOR RODNEY HARRIS TO DIRECT THAT OFFICER JACKSON BE POLYGRAPH OR VOICE-STRESS TESTED?

Miami Gardens Police Officer Jackson was dating, engaged to and married to Roland Clarke when they both worked at Dade Correctional Institution.  Prior to Officer Jackson going to work for the Miami Gardens Police Department (MGPD), Officer Roland Clarke told Officer Jackson about how he used to use a shower that reached temperatures in excess of 160 degrees Fahrenheit to punish mentally disabled inmates; that he placed Darren Rainey in said shower as punishment; and that Rainey died in said shower.  Officer Jackson worked with Officer Roland Clarke in the same Dade Correctional Institution Transitional Care Unit where the hot-water shower was located; where Officer Roland Clarke was using the hot-water shower to punish mentally-disabled inmates and where Darren Rainey died.
I believe the citizens of Miami Gardens have a right to know if Officer Roland Clarke admitted to Officer Jackson to killing Darren Rainey and torturing mentally-disabled inmates.
For this reason I’m asking everyone who reads this blog to send an email to Miami Gardens, Florida Mayor Rodney Harris and ask him to have the MGPD polygraph or voice stress test Officer Jackson  about what Officer Roland Clarke told her about the Darren Rainey murder and Clarke’s torturing of mentally-disabled inmates
If you’d like to learn more about the Darren Rainey murder and Officer Roland Clarke then you’ll want to read my book entitled “DEPARTMENT OF CORRUPTION – Darren Rainey – The Untold Story.” You can locate this book at Crusader Books or Lulu Publishing.  Please share this blog with your friends.

WILL YOU PLEASE ASK MIAMI GARDENS FLORIDA MAYOR RODNEY HARRIS TO DIRECT THAT ROLAND CLARKE BE GIVEN A POLYGRAPH OR VOICE STRESS TEST?

If you google my name you’ll see that I’m the inmate who exposed the brutal torture and murder of Darren Rainey to the media and law enforcement.  I wrote a book entitled DEPARTMENT OF CORRUPTION – Darren Rainey – The Untold Story –   My book can be located at Crusader Books or Lulu Publishing.  In my book I provided hundreds of pages of facts to support that Roland Clarke was using a rigged shower that reached temperatures in excess of 160 degrees Fahrenheit to punish mentally disabled inmates; that he placed Darren Rainey in said shower as punishment and that Rainey died in said shower.
Roland Clarke is currently employed by the Miami Gardens Police Department.  In other words, a killer who is responsible for torturing mentally disabled inmates is employed by the Miami Gardens Police Department.  I believe that Mayor Rodney Harris should direct that the Miami Gardens Police Department (MGPD) give Roland Clarke a polygraph or voice stress test about the Darren Rainey case and the torturing of mentally disabled inmates in the Dade Correctional Institution Transitional Care Unit.  Polygraph tests and voice stress tests are admissible in administrative proceedings. Will you please email and ask everybody you know to email Miami Gardens, Florida Mayor Rodney Harris and ask him to direct that the MGPD give Roland Clarke a polygraph or voice stress test about the murder of Darren Rainey and the torturing of mentally disabled inmates in the Dade CI TCU.

Lies By Dade County – Florida State Attorney Katherine Rundle Concerning The Time Stamps On The Video Footage In The Darren Rainey Case

The State Attorney in her Memo closing the Rainey case without prosecuting any of the suspects involved with his murder, said the footage from the mounted security cameras on the night Rainey died shows the times I provided concerning when specific things happened were inaccurate.  The State Attorney didn’t disclose that the time stamps on the recordings that her office released were not from the mounted security cameras that recorded the events that happened with Rainey on the night he died.  Rainey was housed in the Westside Transitional Care Unit, the cell he lived in was located in Wing-1 and he died in Wing J-3.  The time stamp location on both of the videos the State Attorney released show an “E”.  Additionally, the time stamp location on the three minute video states “J-4” and the time stamp location on the 117 minute video states “J-5”.  This shows us that the time stamps on both videos came from the mounted security cameras on the Eastside in Wings J-4 and J-5.  If the time stamps on the video footage was from wings J-1 and J-3 which were the wings where the cameras were that recorded what happened to Rainey, then the time stamps would’ve said “J-1″ and J-3”.
It’s outrageous that the State Attorney tried to manipulate people into believing the time stamps on the videos her office released were the time stamps from the mounted security cameras that monitored everything that happened to Rainey on the he night he died, when the time stamps on the videos prove that they weren-t.
I authored a book called “Department of Corruption – Darren Rainey – The Untold Story.”  This book can be located at Crusader Books or Lulu Publishing.  In my book I thoroughly explain numerous false statements the State Attorney made in her close-out memo on the Darren Rainey case –  I also thoroughly explain all types of matters concerning the Rainey case and all types of matters concerning the Florida Department of Corrections –  I hope that you read my book and join us in trying to bring reform to the Florida prison system.  Please share this blog with your friends.

WHAT IS MORE IMPORTANT: PROTECTING FEDERAL INVESTIGATION INTO TAX & CREDIT-CARD FRAUD IN FLORIDA DEPARTMENT OF CORRECTIONS OR JUSTICE FOR THE MURDER OF DARREN RAINEY?

Tax and credit-card fraud have been happening in large levels in Florida Department of Corrections (FDC) for close to two decades.  When I was working for the FDC Inspector General’s Office as a Confidential Informant, I was involved in investigation into individuals who were filing more than 100 tax returns a year.  All of the tax-returns they were filing ranged between $1,200 and $4,800.  As it relates to credit-card fraud, I can’t count how many inmates I’ve known over the last decade who have processed hundreds of credit-card applications a year over their cell-phones.  The majority of inmates who engage in tax and credit-card fraud in FDC have staff helping them with their fraud.  From personal knowledge I understand the Federal Government’s interest in protecting their investigation into organized fraud in FDC.

I also hope that the Federal Government understands how important it is to protect their investigations.  For this reason I hope everybody understands that justice for the murder of Darren Rainey must happen.  In my book “DEPARTMENT OF CORRUPTION – Darren Rainey – The Untold Story” I explained in detail the audio recordings that were covertly obtained in 2013 and 2014 of Roland Clarke at Dade C.I. admitting to torturing mentally disabled inmates and killing Darren Rainey.  The Government has copies of the recordings.  I pray that the recordings are used to support prosecuting those involved with killing Rainey.  Those friends of mine who have copies of the recordings I mentioned in my “Department of Corruption” book, know what circumstances to release the recordings without my direction.

To show how serious I am, I will provide the following information for people to start investigation:

(1)  In 2008 a high-ranking federal official in Tallahassee, Florida directed the FDC Inspector General’s Office to investigate information I supplied the federal official concerning Washington C.I. Main Unit – now Northwest Florida Reception Center.

(2)  In 2009 FDC Inspector General James Hayden at Wakulla C.I. Annex requested that his supervisors approve my transfer from Wakulla C.I. Annex because my identity as an informant had been disclosed.

(3)  I’ve been involved with investigations in FDC as an informant since 2002.

Dear Dade County State Attorney and Dade County Medical Examiner
Harold Hempstead has published a book entitled “Department of Corruption – Darren Rainey – The Untold Story”  – His book can be located at Crusaderbooks dot com –  In his book he explains in extensive detail how he obtained covert recordings of Roland Clarke admitting to killing Darren Rainey and torturing mentally disabled inmates in the Dade CI Transitional Care Unit –  The March 17 – 2017 State Attorney-s memo doesn-t mention these recordings that Hempstead wrote about in his book –  Also it should be noted that Hempstead said he has access to the covert recordings that he obtained –  Will you please let me know why you didn-t mention these recordings in your memo~  Will you also let me know how the Medical Examiner could say what she said about Rainey-s body when Hempstead said Roland Clarke admitted that the shower was “extremely hot” on the records~
Will you please respond to these questions as soon as possible~
Sincerely –
Harold Hempstead

DEPARTMENT OF CORRUPTION

DARREN RAINEY – THE UNTOLD STORY

By Harold Hempstead

A historically factual book about the Darren Rainey murder, the systematic culture of corruption in the Florida Department of Corrections and the murdering, torturing and abuse of Florida prisoners.

A compelling expose of the hidden world of brutality and corruption in the Florida Department of Corrections. 

Harold Hempstead was incarcerated in the Florida Department of Corrections (FDC) for 17 years.  On 17th March, 2017 he was involuntarily Interstate Compacted to the Tennessee Department of Corrections in an attempt to censor him on the Darren Rainey case and stop him from engaging in prisoner civil rights activities.

During his years incarcerated in Florida he was incarcerated at the majority of Florida’s most violent prisons.

In this historically factual book Harold Hempstead chronicles:

1)  A tremendous amount of facts on the Darren Rainey case that have never been told to the public.  Harold Hempstead exposed the brutal scalding death of Darren Rainey to the Miami Herald newspaper.

2)  The murdering, starving, torturing and abusing of Florida inmates by prison staff.

3)  The mass-poisoning of the food that inmates eat,  with pills, chemicals, feces and urine by FDC staff.

4)  The extreme physically and sexually violent conditions in the Florida Department of Corrections.

5)  The rise in gang membership and violence in Florida prisons.

6)  Drugs, cellular phones and contraband-smuggling activities.

7)  A tremendous amount of facts about the culture of corruption and the unconstitutional conditions of the Florida Department of Corrections.

This eye-opening factual book truly exposes the world behind the walls in the Florida prison system and shows why reform and independent oversight are needed in the Florida Department of Corrections.

Miami Herald newspaper – (Reporter Julie K Brown: 8/8/2015)

Article name:  The Inmate Who Exposed Florida Prisons Culture Of Cruelty

“Hempstead didn’t set out to be a hero and, perhaps to some people, he isn’t a hero at all.  But it is likely that no-one would have ever known about the death of mentally ill inmate Darren Rainey, or about the systematic culture of physical and mental abuse of inmates in Florida prisons. had it not been for Hempstead. ”

“Hempstead’s steadfast determination to expose the monstrous acts he says he witnessed ultimately brought about an overhaul of the prison system, the firing of top corrections officials and officers, federal arrests and an ongoing investigation by the US Department of Justice .”

“Hempstead did all this from a prison cell and in spite of threats, intimidation and a haunting fear that one day he would suffer an accident and never wake up.”

Tampa Bay Times (8/11/2015)

Article name:  Editorial:  A Horrific Account Of Prison Abuse

“Convicted burglar Harold Hempstead is responsible for helping to lift the curtains on systematic corruption in Florida’s prison system.”

Miami Herald newspaper – (Reporter Julie K Brown :  8/8/2015)
