DO YOU KNOW OF ANY CASES WHERE THE DADE COUNTY FLORIDA STATE ATTORNEY REFUSED TO PROSECUTE LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICIALS FOR UNLAWFULLY KILLING A CAUCASIAN OR CHRISTIAN?

In prior blogs I mentioned how I believed the Dade County Florida State Attorney refused to prosecute Rainey’s killers because Rainey was a poor, black, mentally disabled, Muslim prisoner and to the Dade County State Attorney Rainey’s life wasn’t worth how much it’d cost to prosecute his killers.  I’m in prison with no access to the internet and limited access to a telephone.  I believe if I can prove the Dade County Florida State Attorney has no history of refusing to prosecute law enforcement officials for unlawfully killing Caucasians or Christians, it will support my position more, that a motivating factor in why the Dade County State Attorney didn’t prosecute Rainey’s killers was because Rainey was a poor, black, mentally disabled, Muslim prisoner.  If I had access to the internet and unlimited access to a phone, I could thoroughly research this issue within 2 or 3 hours.  Since I don’t have the foregoing, I don’t want you to think I haven’t researched this issue.  Those who know me fairly good, know that I have a strong belief that nobody should ever assert something without any evidence.  If I was to assert something based on no evidence, I’d be engaging in unsupported speculation.  In other words, giving you my opinion based on no evidence.  Now it is obvious that I can only speak based on the knowledge that I have.  As long as my statements are only consistent with what I know / the level of knowledge that I have, then I cannot be charged with lying – something all Christians and people with morals should strive against doing.  If I make assertions based on what I know and somebody comes along who knows more than me on said subject and presents evidence that my assertions are not accurate, I haven’t proven to be a liar.  However, it would be proven that person has knowledge I didn’t have prior to making my assertion.

I have taken the position that one of the motivating factors in why the Dade County State Attorney has decided to not prosecute Darren Rainey’s killers is because Darren Rainey was a poor, black, mentally disabled, Muslim prisoner.  I also believe there’s substantial evidence to prove murder in the Rainey case.

I’m asking for the help of those who are reading this blog.  Will you please search the internet and provide me with one newspaper article from the Miami Herald, Miami Times or any respected newspaper that present facts that show (1) That since Katherine Fernandez Rundle has been the Dade County Florida State Attorney, her office has refused to prosecute a law enforcement official for unlawfully killing a Caucasian or Christian who was unarmed and not a physical threat to the police or others.  (2)  The Caucasian or Christian had to be unarmed and not a physical threat to police or others.  If the Caucasian or Christian was armed or a physical threat to others then law enforcement was to some degree justified in the action they took.  In the Rainey case the government admits that Rainey was unarmed and not a threat to police or others.  (3)  The newspaper article must specifically reference how the Dade County Florida State Attorney has refused to prosecute a law enforcement official for unlawfully killing a Caucasian or Christian.  The evidence that I’m specifically needing is this:  (1)  Evidence that the law enforcement official who unlawfully killed the Caucasian or Christian wasn’t prosecuted by the Dade County State Attorney’s Office since Katherine Rundle has been the Dade County, Florida State Attorney.  (2)  Evidence that the person killed was a Caucasian or Christian.  (3)  Evidence that the person killed was unarmed and not a physical threat to police or others.  It should be noted that if there was any evidence showing that law enforcement believed the Caucasian or Christian was armed (even though he or she wasn’t) then law enforcement was still to some degree justified in the force they used.  As long as they had some evidence to believe such.  I know you might disagree with me, but as a Certified Paralegal I know Florida law doesn’t.  If you can’t find me an article from a respected newspaper or even a respected magazine that can provide the above evidence, I’ll also accept any State or Federal document that can provide the above evidence.  Please look at what I’m specifically requesting, because if you provide me with anything other than what I’m specifically requesting, I won’t be able to use it / it won’t be helpful.  I need facts/evidence.  Not opinions.  I really want those who are reading this to please look at how I construct my words in this blog to try and get help at finding specific evidence to support a specific position.   I believe if you research you won’t find any articles by respected newspapers or magazines or any State or Federal documents on all of the above.  Keep in mind I need all of what I’m requesting – not just some of it.  The reason why I’m being so specific is because I need facts/evidence to present to the Department of Justice and Civil Rights leaders.  I can’t present opinions/speculation to them.  I want to read anything you’d like for me to read concerning the matters herein.  Please feel free to provide Jeremy with any articles, documents, etc. you’d like for me to read.  If you don’t provide me with what I requested herein, I’ll take the position that nothing could be found on the internet.  I strive to know the facts/evidence and to never present unsupported speculation/opinions.  I ask you, will you please help me see if there’s any articles by respected newspapers or magazines or any State or Federal documents on the internet that provide the specific facts/evidence listed herein that shows the Dade County State Attorney’s Office under Katherine Rundle’s leadership has refused to prosecute a law enforcement official for unlawfully killing a Caucasian or Christian?  Please look because I believe you won’t find what I’m looking for.  Also please understand that by encouraging you to help me research, if you don’t find what I’m specifically looking for, you’ve aided me in proving that a motivating factor in why Katherine Rundle has decided to not prosecute Rainey’s killers was because Darren Rainey was a poor, black, mentally disabled, Muslim prisoner and to Ms. Rundle his life wasn’t worth how much  it’d cost to prosecute Rainey’s killers.

DANIEL GEIGER – THE FIRST INMATE PLACED IN THE SHOWER AS PUNISHMENT THAT KILLED DARREN RAINEY

From the beginning I explained to the Miami-Dade Police Department (MDPD) that Daniel Geiger was the first mentally disabled inmate placed in the shower (Rainey was killed in) as a torturing device, and easily the most mentally disabled inmate I witnessed get placed in the shower as punishment.  Just prior to Geiger leaving the Dade C.I. TCU to go to Lake C.I. TCU I witnessed him eating his own faeces.  I don’t believe Geiger was ever in touch with reality when I knew him in the Dade C.I. TCU.

In 2012 Geiger was transferred to Lake C.I. TCU.  I was told that in the end of 2016 Geiger was found dead in the Lake C.I. TCU.  I don’t know anything about Geiger’s death, I just know he died.

When I was reading the Dade County, Florida State Attorney’s 3/17/17 memorandum stating they aren’t going to prosecute Rainey’s killers, I noticed that it said that the MDPD attempted to interview Geiger.  Page 36 of the State Attorney’s memorandum provides a synopsis of MDPD’s attempt to interview Geiger.  The synopsis says Geiger appeared despondent, that Geiger didn’t appear to fully understand the questions and that he was adamant that he was never incarcerated at Dade C.I., but this synopsis contends that the interview was done at Dade C.I.  In other words, Geiger didn’t know he was at Dade C.I. when the interview was being done.  (I guess Geiger returned from Lake C.I. to Dade C.I. sometime prior to this interview and sometime after this interview he transferred to Lake C.I. again.)

By reading this synopsis on page 36 of the Dade County Florida State Attorney’s memorandum, you can see that Geiger was severely mentally disabled when the MDPD tried to talk with him.  However this fact didn’t stop the Dade County State Attorney from citing Geiger like she was citing a mentally-stable man.  To be specific, on page 69, first paragraph, last sentence of the State Attorney’s memorandum it states “Geiger said he was unaware of the shower being used for punishment or torture.”

Do you think it’s right that the Dade County Florida State Attorney cited Geiger like he was a stable inmate?  Let’s think about this:  when the MDPD interviewed Geiger at Dade C.I. they said he appeared despondent, did not appear to fully understand the questions and was adamant that he was never incarcerated at Dade C.I.  To me it’s outrageous that the State Attorney cited Geiger like he was mentally stable.  The mentally unstable shouldn’t have their words used against them, and they should be given more protection because they are mentally unstable.

Do you believe it’s right for the police to ask severely mentally disabled people if they were victimized and when they give some kind of answer that can be interpreted as ‘no,’ that the police and State Attorney use that answer against them and let the suspect get away that harmed them?  Shouldn’t the police and State Attorney use witnesses and other types of evidence to prove the crime(s)?

Another thing that I find outrageous is not only that the State Attorney cited a mentally unstable man like he was stable, but she also cited a dead man.  Yes, Daniel Geiger died several months prior to the State Attorney releasing their memorandum.

If you look at Martin Christianson’s statement on page 41 of the State Attorney’s memorandum you’ll read that the State Attorney told us what Christianson’s statement was, but also told us that Christianson was deceased.  The State Attorney didn’t tell anybody that Geiger was deceased.  Why do you think the State Attorney did this?

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.

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.

Please share your answers with us.  We want to receive your responses to my questions.  We care about what you think.

THE LAWYERS AND OFFICIALS WHO TACITLY SAID THERE WAS ENOUGH EVIDENCE TO PROVE THE ABUSE AND TORTURING OF MENTALLY DISABLED INMATES IN THE DADE C.I. TCU.

In the end of 2014, Disability Rights Florida filed a 42 USC 1983 Civil Rights complaint lawsuit against Florida Department of Corrections (FDC) Secretary Michael Crews, FDC and Wexford Health Sources Inc.  This lawsuit was filed in the United States District Court, for the Southern District of Florida, Miami Division and assigned case number 1 : 14 – CV – 23323.

If you google ‘Pacer’ on the internet and go to the Pacer site, you can use the Pacer service to read this lawsuit and all the filings on it.  I ask that you please do this because if you do you’ll read the following:

The actual complaint that was filed in this class-action lawsuit mentions in some detail the shower in the Dade C.I. TCU that was used as a torturing device to punish mentally disabled inmates, it mentions the murder of Darren Rainey and it mentions how inmates were physically abused and denied food in the Dade C.I. TCU as a form of punishment.  I haven’t read this lawsuit in over a year, but I believe these are the only circumstances the lawsuit mentioned.

The court documents you read on this case will further show that the defendants (FDC Secretary, FDC, and Wexford Health Sources Inc.) in this lawsuit agreed to settle it with Disability Rights Florida in favour of Disability Rights Florida within a year of the lawsuit being filed.

A review of the settlement offer in this lawsuit will show that the changes the defendants agreed to make to the Dade C.I. TCU were the types of changes the defendants would of only agreed to if they knew the torturing and abuses mentioned in the actual lawsuit happened.  Please read this lawsuit, the filings in this lawsuit and the settlement.  You’ll see what I’m saying is accurate.

Now why would these defendants agree to settle a class action lawsuit and institute several changes in the Dade C.I. TCU that cost these defendants substantial money to institute, if the circumstances stated in the actual lawsuit were not true?  The answer to this question is obvious.  They wouldn’t have.  The FDC Secretary, FDC and Wexford Health Sources Inc. knew the shower was being used as a torturing device to punish mentally disabled inmates, these defendants knew that Darren Rainey was killed, these defendants knew mentally disabled inmates were being physically abused and denied food in the Dade C.I. TCU as a form of punishment;  and these defendants knew that the mentally disabled inmates in the Dade C.I. TCU were being subjected to cruel and unusual punishment.  The defendants knew these things were factual so they agreed to the settlement.

The settlement in the foregoing class action lawsuit was obtained in 2015.  The Dade County State Attorney had from 2012 till March 17, 2017 to find ways to twist all the evidence relating to abuse and torturing in the Dade C.I. TCU and the murder of Darren Rainey.

Isn’t it outrageous that the lawyers representing FDC’s Secretary, FDC and Wexford Health Sources, Inc. all knew there was enough evidence in this lawsuit to settle it in favour of those who sued them and the Miami Federal District Court accepted that settlement, based on the lawyers tacitly recognizing the evidence and agreeing to settle, but the Dade County State Attorney now tells the people of Florida and the World she’s not going to prosecute?  What is the obvious real reason why State Attorney Katherine Rundle decided to not prosecute Rainey’s killers?  It is the same reason her office has chose to not prosecute any law enforcement official for killing an African American in Dade County, Florida.  To simply state it:  Black Lives don’t Matter to Dade County State Attorney Ms Rundle.

I believe that it is obvious that the law enforcement officials in Dade County Florida know that if they unlawfully kill an African American they don’t have to worry about being prosecuted.  Dade County State Attorney Ms Rundle will protect them.

What is happening to the foundation our country was built on?  What is happening to our country?  You say, “well this stuff doesn’t affect me now.”  As things continue to get worse, you will one day be affected by the racism and hatred that is happening in these times.  Why don’t you, with peace, love and wisdom, take action now and maybe you won’t be affected?  I believe Black Lives and all Lives mater.  What do you believe and do your actions support what you say you believe?

WATCH OUT AFRICAN AMERICANS – YOUR LIVES ARE IN DANGER

.

As I’ve watched the events that have happened over these last several years, the only thing that I can say to African Americans is:  Watch Out – Your Lives Are In Danger.

As African Americans continue to get killed and the people that kill them are not prosecuted because the culprits are white, or the people involved with the investigation and/or prosecution of the case are racist, the people of America are seeing they can get away with killing African Americans.

You African Americans need to think about what I’m saying.  What type of statement is tacitly being made every single time an African American is killed and the culprit is not prosecuted?  The answer is obvious.  The statement that is being tacitly made is, that people can get away with killing African Americans.

America has been built on the backs of African Americans and I believe it’s time for African Americans to rise up in love and unity in mass peaceful protest which is a Constitutional Right of all American people.  This is the only way that I believe the African Americans of our great nation can show the people of our country and the World that Black Lives Matter and enough is enough.

If you think that African Americans can continue to be killed and the people who kill them not be prosecuted and that this is not sending out a statement that people can get away with killing African Americans please let me know!  If you believe that Black Lives Matter, please let me know.
