WHEN WAS THE MIAMI-DADE POLICE DEPARTMENT (MDPD) ASSIGNED TO INVESTIGATE THE DARREN RAINEY MURDER (6/23/12) AND WHEN DID THEY START INVESTIGATING SAID MURDER (JUNE 2014)

On 6/23/12 when Darren Rainey was murdered the MDPD was assigned to investigate said murder.  On that same day the MDPD assigned case number : 1206 23238979MDPD as the MDPD case number for the Rainey murder.

MDPD and Miami-Dade County Florida State Attorney records will show that from 6/23/12 till June 2014, the MDPD didn’t conduct any investigations into the Rainey murder.

All law enforcement officials are taught to not postpone investigating a case.  Why?  Because as time passes evidence is destroyed or lost, witnesses die and their memories get worse.  All law enforcement officials know that as time passes the chances of proven the crime decrease.  The MDPD detectives assigned to the Rainey case knew the foregoing and they still refused to investigate the Rainey case.  Why do you think the MDPD refused to investigate the Rainey case for approximately two years, knowing that as time progress the chance of proving the case decrease?  I cannot think of any valid legal or moral reason for the MDPD doing the foregoing.  The only logical reason I can think of as to why the MDPD would do the foregoing was that the MDPD detectives assigned to the Rainey case believed they had more important cases to investigate.  The Rainey murder wasn’t important to the MDPD detectives assigned to the case.  Why wasn’t it important to them?  I believe it was because of who Darren Rainey was.  Rainey was a poor, black, mentally disabled Muslim prisoner, in prison for possession of a small amount of drugs.  To the MDPD nobody cared about Rainey’s murder apart from some convicted burglar serving 165 years in prison.  Since nobody in society cared about Rainey’s murder, why would they care about it!  To the MDPD detectives assigned to the Rainey case, Rainey was a nobody.  If you order the MDPD rules for investigations and the MDPD Homicide Department Standard Operating Procedures For Investigations, you’ll see the MDPD detectives assigned to the Rainey case violated their own rules in not starting an investigation into the Rainey case until almost two years after Rainey’s murder.

Now I’d like to address what actually caused the MDPD to actually start investigating the Rainey murder.  If you go to the Miami Herald newspaper internet site and read the first Miami Herald article published on the Rainey murder on 5/18/14, and read all their articles that mention Rainey’s name until about the second week of June 2014, you’ll see it was the media that caused the MDPD to do their job and start investigating the Rainey murder.  Yes the only thing that caused the MDPD to do their job and investigate the Rainey murder was the Miami Herald publishing several articles on how the MDPD was refusing to investigate the brutal murder of Rainey that happened almost two years earlier.

MDPD and Dade County Florida State Attorney records will prove that absolutely nothing was done to investigate the Rainey murder from June 2012 till June 2014.  Please investigate what I’m saying.  Also, please read the May and June 2014 Miami Herald articles and you’ll see how they mention the MDPD not investigating the Rainey case.  I believe this should show the people of Dade County, Florida and the World that certain types of people’s lives don’t matter to the MDPD.  If you’re poor your life don’t matter to the MDPD.  If you’re black your life don’t matter to the MDPD.  If you’re mentally disabled your life don’t matter to the MDPD.  If you’re Muslim your life don’t matter to the MDPD.  If you’re a prisoner your life don’t matter to the MDPD.  If you’re anything else your life might not matter to the MDPD.

My friends, I’ve told people over these years that by taking a stand asking for justice for the murder of Rainey, I’m not just taking a stand for Rainey, I’m taking a stand for the value of life for all people.  By saying Rainey’s life mattered we’re saying all lives matter.  In other words, a quest for one is a quest for all.  Please join us in our quest to show that Darren Rainey’s life mattered and that all lives matter.

THE INMATE WITNESSES THE MIAMI-DADE POLICE DEPARTMENT PLACED IN DANGER IN THE DARREN RAINEY MURDER CASE

After approximately 6 months of Dade C.I. staff using a shower that reached temperatures of 160°F (according to Dade C.I. Cpt. Dixon) to punish mentally disabled inmates, Darren Rainey would be the last inmate placed in the shower as punishment.  Why?  Because he was killed in the shower.

The primary officer responsible for killing Rainey was reposted to work in another area at Dade C.I. (other than in the TCU where Rainey was killed) about four months after Rainey’s murder.  Rainey was killed on June 23, 2012, the officer was reposted in October 2012.  In March 2014, the officer was reassigned to work back in Dade C.I. Westside TCU which is the area where Rainey was killed.  The officer who killed Rainey was no longer an officer when he returned to the Westside TCU.  He returned as a sergeant.

In April 2014 I met with a Miami Herald representative at Dade C.I., on May 18, 2014 the Miami Herald newspaper published their first article on the Darren Rainey murder and from thereforth until the first about two weeks of June, 2014 they published several articles on the Miami-Dade Police Department not investigating the Rainey murder.

In June 2014 the Miami-Dade Police Department interviewed ten inmates in the Dade C.I. TCU who were in the Dade C.I. TCU when Rainey was killed.  In August 2014 the MDPD interviewed an eleventh inmate in the Dade C.I. TCU who was also in the Dade C.I. TCU when Rainey was killed.

These eleven inmates were all witnesses to inmates being starved, abused and tortured in the TCU they were housed in.  Several of these inmates were witnesses to the Rainey murder and how the Dade C.I. staff used the shower Rainey was killed in to torture mentally disabled inmates for approximately six months.

Why did the MDPD place these inmates’ lives in danger and interview them while they were still housed in the Dade C.I. TCU in the custody of staff who were starving, abusing and torturing inmates?  Why didn’t the MDPD make arrangements to have these inmate-witnesses transferred to another TCU at another institution where the inmates would be safe and interview the inmates at a safe institution?  Do you believe the experienced MDPD detectives that interviewed these witnesses knew or didn’t know that by interviewing the eleven inmates in the Dade C.I. TCU, they were placing these inmates’ lives in danger?

I believe these detectives knew what they were doing and they did such to hinder/hurt the investigation.  It is obvious that the MDPD only acted like they were investigating the Rainey case because of the numerous articles that the Miami Herald published in May and June 2014 on the MDPD refusing to investigate the Rainey murder.  The police didn’t want to investigate the Rainey murder and the May and June Miami Herald articles that mentioned their failure to do the foregoing is what caused them to have to investigate said murder.  How do you think the MDPD felt that a newspaper was exposing them for failing to investigate the murder of a black, mentally disabled Muslim prisoner?  Do you believe that if the MDPD conducted a thorough and effective investigation into Rainey’s murder and proved Rainey’s murder, it would’ve made the MDPD look bad?  I believe it would’ve because it would’ve showed that the police were originally trying not to investigate a brutal murder and that they only investigated said murder and allowed such after the media published several articles on the police department refusing to investigate Rainey’s murder.  The sad thing is Rainey was a black, mentally disabled Muslim prisoner and that is why the MDPD didn’t want to investigate the Rainey case and that is why the Dade County Florida State Attorney don’t want to prosecute Rainey’s killers.

WHAT HAPPENED TO HAROLD HEMPSTEAD (ME) ON THE DAY THE DADE COUNTY FLORIDA STATE ATTORNEY RELEASED THEIR DECISION TO NOT PROSECUTE DARREN RAINEY’S KILLERS

At 3:30am on 3/17/17 I was waken in my prison cell at Hardee C.I. by Cpt. Schrank, Sgt. Hamilton, and Ofc. Cabrara.  After being told all my property was going to be thrown in the trash, I was taken to the front of Hardee C.I.  While in the front of Hardee C.I., Cpt. Schrank told Sgt. Hamilton “Serg. it’s on you.”  Sgt. Hamilton then slapped me with an open hand.  Ofc. Cabrara helped me get back up, as he was saying “get up Hempstead,” Ofc. Cabrara then held me from behind by both arms as Sgt. Hamilton grabbed my throat and said “you could’ve had a serious accident, but instead you’re being spared.  Don’t forget that.  You hear me?”

When the Sgt. let go of my throat, Cpt. Schrank said “you really pissed off the wrong person.  Think about what he said and think hard!”  When Ofc. Cabrara let me go he punched me in my lower back.

After the foregoing I was placed on a van with none of my law-work, Bible, property, pain medicine and wrist-support for my broken right wrist, pain medicine and back-brace for my hurt back, vision glasses and ADA equipment for my eyes, and without a urinal to urinate in on the four hour trip to Regional Medical Centre (RMC).

After we arrived at RMC, I was placed on another van and driven to an institution in Tennessee that is part of the Tennessee Department of Corrections (TDOC).

I have no criminal charges in Tennessee.  Interstate Compact is when an inmate is sent from one state prison to do his prison time in a state he wasn’t convicted in.  The majority of time inmates request to be Interstate Compacted from one state to another state to be closer to their family or to have better living conditions in a different state.  I didn’t request to be Interstate Compacted.  I never knew I was going to be subject to involuntary Interstate Compact.

Why was I involuntary Interstate Compacted?  I was recently told that the Florida Department of Corrections told Tennessee that the reason why Florida involuntary Interstate Compacted me was for my protection.  In other words, Florida has alleged that I had a serious protection issue in Florida that made it where I wouldn’t be safe at any institution in Florida.  It is obvious that the only protection problems I’d have in Florida is with Florida prison staff because of my activism concerning the unconstitutional conditions of the Florida prison system.  Accordingly, the Florida prison system has tacitly stated they can’t trust their own prison staff in sending me to Tennessee for protection from Florida Prison Staff.  If the Florida prison system could trust their own staff I wouldn’t have been involuntarily Interstate Compacted to the Tennessee prison system.  I believe this should show the Department of Justice and everybody that the fact that the Florida prison system don’t trust their own staff to not physically harm me shows how bad the conditions are in the Florida prison system.

Now even though the Florida prison system contends I was involuntary Interstate Compacted for my protection, I believe I was subjected to the foregoing as punishment for my Civil Rights activism concerning the unconstitutional conditions of the Florida prison system.

I also believe that another primary reason I was subjected to the punishment of involuntary Interstate Compact and the events that happened on 3/17/17 was as a way of hindering my communications with the media and etc. on the Dade County, Florida State Attorney’s decision to not prosecute Darren Rainey’s killers.  Obviously it is harder to communicate with Florida media from Tennessee than from Florida.  I believe I was battered and the other things happened to me on 3/17/17 as punishment for my Civil Rights activism on the Rainey case and Florida prison system and as a way of Florida prison staff trying to give me something to think about if I continue my activism in the Rainey case and against the unconstitutional conditions of the Florida prison system.

THE RECORDS THAT THE DADE COUNTY FLORIDA STATE ATTORNEY DIDN’T OBTAIN THAT WOULD’VE AIDED IN PROVING DARREN RAINEY WAS MURDERED

As I read through the Dade County, Florida State Attorney’s 3/17/17 memorandum (hereinafter ‘State Attorney’s memorandum’) stating they’re not going to prosecute anybody for killing Darren Rainey, I noticed there was no reference to some very important records they should’ve obtained in the investigation into Rainey’s brutal murder.  I’m going to list those records and how they are relevant:

1)  The Dade County State Attorney should’ve obtained the Florida Department of Corrections (FDC) ‘Forced Hygiene Compliance Procedure’.  This FDC Procedure lists the specific actions all FDC staff must follow if an inmate refuses to shower.   Those who killed Rainey lied and said Rainey refused to shower on the night they killed him.  This procedure would show that the shower Rainey was placed in violated this procedure.  This procedure would show that the duty warden and psychiatrist at Dade C.I were both supposed to be contacted and told that Rainey was refusing to shower.  Nobody at Dade C.I. contacted the Dade C.I. duty warden and psychiatrist and told them that Rainey was refusing to shower.  This procedure says that a hand-held camera was supposed to be used to film Rainey from the time he was in his cell, removed from his cell and taken to the shower, all the time he was in the shower and when he was taken out of the shower and escorted back to his cell.  None of the foregoing happened on the night Rainey was killed.  This procedure says the duty warden on the night Rainey was killed was supposed to be present to supervise everything that happened when the forced hygiene compliance procedure was being instituted and followed with Darren Rainey.  The duty warden wasn’t in any way contacted on the night Rainey was killed and he wasn’t present for the foregoing.  This procedure says medical staff had to also be present to supervise everything that happened with Rainey from the time he was taken out of his cell to be placed in the shower, until after he showered and was placed back in his cell.  The Dade C.I. staff who killed Rainey didn’t follow any of this procedure on the night Rainey was killed because their intent was not to be lawful and follow the rules.  Their intent was to punish Darren Rainey for being a headache and not listening.  This procedure would’ve also refuted what Darren Rainey’s’ killers told the police that they were following the rules on the night they killed Rainey.

2)  The Dade County State Attorney should’ve obtained the FDC Environmental Health & Safety Manual.  This manual would’ve showed that the temperature of the water in this shower was supposed to not be able to get higher than 120°F.  The State Attorney’s memorandum shows that Dade C.I. Dixon tested the water in the shower Rainey was killed in at 160°F.  This manual would also show that the construction of the shower that was used to kill Rainey was unlawful in violation of the manual.

3)  The Dade County State Attorney should’ve obtained all the Incident Reports from the Dade C.I. TCU and asked the FDC for any Incident Reports that mentioned Darren Rainey’s name.  The foregoing would’ve proved that Darren Rainey and no other inmates who refused to shower was ever lawfully placed in the shower Rainey was killed in.  These Incident Reports would show that when inmates refused to shower and Dade C.I. staff followed the Forced Hygiene Compliance Procedure the inmates refusing to shower were always placed in regular showers in Wings J1 or J2.  Inmates were never placed in the shower in J3 that Rainey was killed in.

4)  The Dade County State Attorney should’ve obtained a copy of all the Housing Unit Logs for the Dade C.I. Westside TCU.  The Dade County State Attorney is aware of what Housing Unit Logs are because they have a copy of one as their Exhibit One.  These Housing Unit Logs would’ve showed that Rainey had no history of wiping faeces on himself or in his cell and he was never placed in a shower for refusing to shower other than the night he was killed.

Those who killed Darren Rainey told the police that the shower Rainey was killed in was a legal shower that was constructed to shower inmates that refused to shower and that Rainey had a history of refusing to shower and being placed in showers.  These are straight lies that Rainey’s killers told the police.  The Miami-Dade Police Department (MDPD) and Dade County Florida State Attorney didn’t do anything to investigate the foregoing lies of Rainey’s killers.  Why didn’t they?  Because if they would’ve investigated the Dade C.I. staff who killed Rainey’s lies and obtained the above records they would’ve proved Rainey’s killers were lying.  These records would’ve proved the shower was never constructed to shower inmates, the shower was illegal, no inmates who refused to shower were ever lawfully showered in it, that Rainey had no history of refusing to shower and that the only time Rainey was ever placed in that shower was on the night he was killed in that shower.

I advised the MDPD and Dade County, Florida State Attorney about the records listed above in sections 1 – 3 several times between 2012 and 2015, so they knew these records existed.  Likewise because the Dade County State Attorney has a Housing Log in the memorandum as Exhibit One this shows they know what Housing Logs are.  Accordingly the police and Dade County State Attorney knew these records existed and were relevant and they didn’t obtain them.  To me it is sad that the Dade County State Attorney and MDPD chose to not seriously investigate the Rainey murder and prosecute Rainey’s killers, but instead chose to try and cover up the murder.  Why did they do this?  The most logical answer I can think of is to them Darren Rainey was a poor, black, mentally disabled, Muslim prisoner and his life didn’t matter.

THE MOUNTED SECURITY CAMERA FOOTAGE THAT TWO AGENCIES DIDN’T SECURE THAT SHOWED FOUL PLAY ON THE NIGHT DARREN RAINEY WAS MURDERED

After Darren Rainey was murdered I wrote the Miami-Dade Police Department {MDPD} and Miami-Dade Medical Examiner’s Office several letters telling them to please secure the footage from the mounted security camera in wing J1 of the Dade C.I. TCU that pointed toward the officer station on the night Rainey was killed.

The reason why I told these two agencies to save this video footage was because it would show the frantic actions of the officers in the officers’ station  after Ofc. Thompson found Rainey dead in the shower, left him dead in the shower on the floor and went to the officers’ station and told his fellow officers Rainey was dead.

I told these agencies that Ofc. Thompson was the officer who found Rainey dead on the shower floor, that he left Rainey dead on the shower floor and went to the officers’ station and told his fellow officer that Rainey was dead.  That for the next approximately eight minutes the officers’ actions were frantic as they obviously discussed Rainey dead in the shower.  That when they were done discussing the foregoing, Ofc. Clarke went to the shower and acted like he just found him dead.  Also, I told these agencies in 2012 and 2013 that several days after Rainey was killed, when discussing Rainey’s death with Ofc.s Clarke and Thompson, they told me to say Ofc. Clarke found Rainey dead if anybody asked.  Finally I told these agencies that these Ofc.s were going to say Ofc. Clarke found Rainey dead, but that was a lie.  As you can see, these agencies knew from the beginning that it was important to secure the footage from the mounted security camera in wing J1 that pointed toward the officers’ station on the night Rainey was killed.  However, as it presently looks this camera footage wasn’t secured.

Why do you think these agencies wouldn’t secure the camera footage?  I believe they didn’t do the foregoing because it was more evidence to show foul play with Rainey’s murder.

Do you believe the police sometimes don’t conduct as thorough investigations into some cases as they do others?  I do.  Do you believe the police would conduct as thorough an investigation into a man in prison being killed as they would a man in society being killed?  I don’t.  Do you believe the police would conduct as thorough investigation into a mentally unstable man being killed as they would a mentally stable man being killed?  I don’t.  Do you believe the police would conduct as thorough investigation into an African American being killed as a Caucasian?  I don’t.  I believe the majority of police in America are very good people that are very good at their work.  However police officers are humans and a lot of them are bias, prejudicial and/or racist.  It is sad, but this is the truth.  Why didn’t the Miami-Dade Police Department secure the footage from the camera mentioned herein?  I believe they didn’t secure this camera footage for the same reason they refused to investigate this case until the Miami Herald newspaper in May 2014 started writing articles on the police failing to investigate this case.  Why?  Because to the Miami-Dade Police Department detective assigned to the Rainey case, Darren Rainey’s life didn’t matter.  Why didn’t his life matter?  Because Darren Rainey was a poor, black, mentally disabled, Muslim prisoner.  When a detective cares about the outcome of a case, they thoroughly investigate it.  When they don’t care, they do just enough to say they investigated it.

The Darren Rainey case is another case that will go down in history as evidence showing that Black Lives Don’t Matter In Dade County, Florida and America.  This is how it’ll be unless we all join together in unity, peace and love, and do all that we can to show Black Lives Matter In Dade County, Florida.  All of our efforts must be in unity, peace and love.  What do you think?  Do you believe Black Lives Matter?  We do.  Do you believe all lives matter?  We do.  We care about what you have to say.  You matter, and you can make a difference.

FIVE IMPORTANT FACTS ABOUT THE DADE COUNTY FLORIDA STATE ATTORNEY TIMELINE THAT SUPPORT HAROLD HEMPSTEAD’S TIMELINE ON DARREN RAINEY’S MURDER

In the Dade County, Florida State Attorney’s 3/17/17 memorandum (hereinafter State Attorney’s memorandum) the State alleges that their timeline marked Exhibit Seven was created from the footage from the mounted security cameras in the wing Rainey was killed in on the night Rainey was killed.

In other blogs I addressed some of the problems with this alleged footage and how I believe said footage was tampered with.  Even though I have many reasons to believe the foregoing, I’d still like to address the timeline marked Exhibit Seven in the State Attorney’s memorandum.  The Dade County State Attorney alleges that their timeline contradicts my timeline in several important areas.  A review of their timeline shows that it supports my timeline on several important facts.

One}  From the beginning I stated I gave Ofc. Clarke a bar of soap when Sgt. Fanfan was in the wing.  The timeline shows that from seven-fifty-seven-nineteen till the time I gave Ofc. Clark the soap {eight-twelve-forty-six} Sgt. Fanfan never left the wing.  The timeline shows Sgt. Fanfan was still in the wing after I gave Ofc. Clarke the soap  {see eight-thirteen-seventeen entry}.

Two}  From the beginning I stated that I gave Ofc. Clarke the bar of soap at approximately the same time Sgt. Fanfan was at the table in front of my cell.  The timeline alleges that I gave Ofc. Clarke the soap at eight-twelve-forty-six and Sgt. Fanfan was at the table in front of my cell at eight-thirteen-seventeen.  A twenty-eight second difference.

Three}  From the beginning I stated that I had a very short conversation with Ofc. Clarke when he came to my cell door to get a bar of soap.  The timeline shows that Ofc. Clark came to my cell door at eight-twelve-thirty-five to get the bar of soap and that he left my cell at eight-twelve-forty-six.  During this time we had a very short conversation.

Four}  From the beginning I said when Sgt. Fanfan was at the table in front of my cell, Ofc. Hood was with him.  The timeline shows that at eight-thirteen-seventeen when Sgt. Fanfan was at the table in front of my cell another Ofc. was with him.  The timeline doesn’t identify who this Ofc. is, but the footage will show it’s Ofc. Hood.

Five}  From the beginning I stated that Ofc. Thompson found Darren Rainey dead in the shower, that he left him dead in the shower to go and tell the staff in the officer’ station that Rainey was dead in the shower and that approximately eight minutes after Ofc. Thompson left Rainey dead in the shower, Ofc. Clarke went to the shower and acted like he found Rainey dead.

The timeline shows that Ofc. Thompson appeared on camera after checking on Rainey at nine-thirteen-thirty-two and that Ofc. Clarke came back to the shower at nine-twenty-five-forty-one.  The State Attorney’s memorandum alleges that Ofc. Clarke found Rainey dead at nine-twenty-five-forty-one.  That’s twelve minutes after Ofc. Thompson really found Rainey dead.  I said it was approximately eight minutes and the timeline shows it was twelve minutes.

I wanted to address these five important facts that the State Attorney’ timeline supports, I’ve stated from the beginning.  Even though there’s many problems with the footage the Dade County, Florida State Attorney has released, the footage still supports these important facts.

In addition to the above I’d like to point out something else that is unusual about the timeline.  The timeline goes from eight-seventeen-thirty-six to eight-fifty-six.  Does the camera footage jump from eight-seventeen-thirty-six to eight-fifty-six?  Is there anything between eight-seventeen-thirty-six and eight-fifty-six?

MUSLIM MARTYR?

In April 2016 the New Yorker magazine published an article entitled ‘Madness’ that mentions how Dade Correctional Institution staff threw Darren Rainey’s Koran in the trash and how the foregoing led to Rainey’s mental health getting worse and him being killed.  Would Rainey’s mental health have got worse if his Koran wasn’t taken from him and thrown in the trash?  From personally witnessing these events I don’t believe it would’ve.  If I’m right then that means Rainey was killed because his Koran was thrown in the trash.  Let’s look at how these events connect:  Rainey’s Koran being thrown in the trash causes his mental health to get worse, Rainey’s mental health condition causes him to get placed in the shower as punishment and while in the shower he dies.

In other words, if Rainey’s Koran wasn’t thrown in the trash his mental health wouldn’t have got worse, he wouldn’t have been placed in the shower to be punished and he wouldn’t have died in that shower.  How I see it is, Rainey’s Koran being thrown in the trash is what led to his death.  From my knowledge, this makes Darren Rainey a Muslim Martyr.

I’m not a Muslim.  I’m a Christian, but what do you think about this?  What do you think about Dade Correctional Institution staff throwing Rainey’s Koran in the trash?  Do you believe it’s right or wrong to be disrespectful to the beliefs of other people?  I believe we should respect other people and their beliefs.
