On 3/17/17 I was ghosted out of the Florida Department of Corrections (FDC) and Involuntary Interstate Compacted to the Tennessee Department of Corrections (TDOC) with none of my law work or property I had in FDC. Since my 3/17/17 arrival to TDOC, I haven’t had any access to Florida law. In this blog, I’m going to from memory attempt to address three Florida statutes that concern the FDC Inspector General’s Office, I believe the Florida Statute numbers I’m going to be addressing are Florida Statutes 944.31, 944.32 and 944.33. I believe Florida Statute 944.31 explains the duties of FDC Inspector Generals and one of the things it says they’re obligated to do it so conduct a physical inspection of all the institutions in FDC once a year. This Florida Statute shows us that in 2011 and 2012 the FDC Inspector General’s Office was obligated, and more than likely did conduct a physical inspection of the Dade C.I. Transitional Care Unit. If they conducted this inspection this statute would’ve obligated them to look in the closet where the unlawful shower equipment was, next to the shower stall that Darren Rainey was killed in. This means they would’ve seen the unlawfully rigged shower that killed Rainey, and they took no action to order the shower equipment be disconnected. I believe Florida Statute 944.32 says the FDC Inspector General’s Office is obligated to complete a written report on their physical inspections of all the institutions they physically inspect. Also, I believe Florida Statute 944.33 explains what type of trouble an FDC Inspector General can get in if they don’t complete written reports of the physical inspections of the institutions in FDC.
Please google the Florida statutes and read them. From my knowledge of these statutes, what they say hasn’t changed from 2011 till the present. I’d really like to obtain a copy of the FDC Inspector General’s Reports of the Dade C.I. TCU from 2011 and 2012 and see if they mention the unlawful shower that killed Darren Rainey. Also, to see, if they do mention said shower, what they say about said shower in their reports. I know from seeing the illegal shower where Rainey was killed, in the Dade C.I. TCU in 2011 and 2012 that it was there when they conducted their physical inspections in these years. These reports could possibly be evidence that shows us the FDC Inspector General’s Office knew that the unlawful shower/torturing device that killed Rainey was in the Dade C.I. TCU and they took no action to have it disconnected but instead allowed it to be used as a torturing device to punish and kill mentally disabled inmates.
