NOTICE CONCERNING ST PETERSBURG POLICE DEPARTMENT JUVENILE CONFIDENTIAL INFORMANTS

I authored a book entitled “USED AND ABUSED BY THE ST PETERSBURG POLICE DEPARTMENT – My Life As A Juvenile Confidential Informant” which can be located at Crusader Books. In this book and in blogs and documents that are on this blog, I’ve explained how the St Petersburg Police Department abuses children and places their lives in danger by using them as confidential informants.
If the police department used you as an informant when you were a child then they abused you.  If you have ever been used as a confidential informant when you were a child, then will you please contact the following two people and share your story with them:  Attorney John Trevena and Tampa Bay Times reporter Kathryn Varn.

WILL THE ST PETERSBURG POLICE DEPARTMENT ADMIT THAT THEY ARE GUILTY OF CHILD-ABUSE AND ENDANGERMENT BY USING JUVENILES AS CONFIDENTIAL INFORMANTS?

I authored a book entitled “USED AND ABUSED BY THE ST PETERSBURG POLICE DEPARTMENT – My Life As A Juvenile Confidential Informant” which can be located at Crusader Books.  In this book and in blogs and documents that are on this blog, I’ve written extensively on the St Petersburg Police Department abusing children and placing their lives in danger by using them as confidential informants.
I was recently told that there’s a possibility that the St Petersburg Police Department (SPPD) might try to say that they no longer use children as confidential informants (CIs).  If the Police Department actually alleges this, then they’d be admitting that they are guilty of abusing children and placing their lives in danger by using them as CIs.
I know beyond all doubt that they are still using children as informants, but why would they deny this, unless they know that it’s legally wrong to use the kids as such and that it’s child-abuse.
I respectfully contend that if the SPPD denies that they are using kids as informants then they are trying to mislead the public because they know they are abusing and endangering the kids by using them as CIs.

WILL THE ST PETERSBURG POLICE DEPARTMENT TRY TO DENY THAT THEY ARE CURRENTLY USING CHILDREN AS CONFIDENTIAL INFORMANTS?

The St Petersburg Police Department will eventually be given an option to admit or deny that they are presently using children as confidential informants (CIs).  I think it would be outrageous and unreasonable if they tried to deny that they are presently using children as CIs.  Additionally – it would be very easy to prove that they are still using children.
(1)  St Petersburg PD records show that they are still using children as informants.
(2)  Pinellas County, Florida State Attorney’s records for their Juvenile Division and the Juvenile Division of the Pinellas County,Florida Public Defender’s Office have records that prove the SPPD is presently using children as CIs.
(3)  The children who are presently being used as CIs, and their families, can prove this to be so.
(4)  Criminal defense attorneys who represent children arrested by SPPD know that SPPD is using children as CIs.

Letter To St Pete Mayor Kriseman On SPPD Child Confidential Informants

Re:  THE ST PETERSBURG POLICE DEPARTMENT USING CHILDREN AS CONFIDENTIAL INFORMANTS
Dear Mayor Kriseman
How are you doing?  Good I hope.  I’m writing you about the pattern and practice of the St Petersburg Police Department placing the lives of children in danger and subjecting them to child abuse by using them as confidential informants.
I authored a book entitled “Used And Abused By The St Petersburg Police Department – My Life As A Juvenile Confidential Informant.”   My book can be located at Crusader books or Lulu Publishing.  In my book I explain how St Petersburg Police Department has a history of using children under the age of 17 as confidential informants.
For decades, juveniles across our nation have been being killed as a result of their work as confidential informants.
In 1998 – 17 year old Chad McDonald was killed in California as a result of his confidential informant work.  His 16 year old girlfriend was also kidnapped, held hostage and tortured for several days.  During that time period she was also raped and shot in the face.
Cecil Calloway was 16 years old when he was beaten and murdered in 1982 as a result of his confidential informant work in Roanoke, Virginia.
Gregory “Sky” Erickson was from Estherville, Iowa.  About a week after his first act as an informant he was found beaten and shot in the head in an abandoned farm house.  His body was also set on fire by his killers.  I believe he was 15 years old when he was killed as a result of his confidential informant work.
Brenda Paz was 16 years old when she was killed in Virginia as a result of her confidential informant work involving the Latin gang Mara Salvatrucha (MS-13) –
Every child that the St Petersburg Police Department uses as a confidential informant, they place in a position to possibly be killed.
The following documents which can be located on the internet show that Professors and a large quantity of people across our nation agree that law enforcement place the lives of children in danger when they use them as confidential informants.  Additionally, the following documents show that law enforcement commit child abuse when they use children as confidential informants:

The citizens of St Petersburg, Florida have a right to expect the St. Petersburg Police Department to not abuse children and place the lives of children in danger.
As mayor of St Petersburg, Florida, you have the authority to stop the unconstitutional pattern and practice of St Petersburg Police Officers placing the livs of children in danger and subjecting children to chil abuse.  You also hav the authority to request that the Department of justice (DOJ) and Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) investigate the St Petersburg Police Department using children as confidential informants.
Will you please take action to protect the children of St Petersburg by ordering that the SPPD stop placing the lives of children in danger and abusing children by using them as confidential informants?
Will you please also request that the DOJ and FBI conduct investigations into the unconstitutional pattern and practice of SPPD officers placing the lives of children in danger by using them as confidential informants?
Thank you for your time with these matters and I hope to hear from you soon.
Sincerely,  Harold Hempstead,

A BLOG ON HOW DADE C.I. TCU STAFF DENIED MENTALLY DISABLED INMATES FOOD AS A FORM OF PUNISHMENT

Over the approximately two years I worked in the Dade C.I. Transitional Care Unit (TCU) I discovered that one of the most common forms of unlawful punishment Dade C.I. staff subjected mentally disabled inmates to was denying the patients food.  It was very  common on all the shifts to deny inmates one to three of their meals a day.  Dozens of security staff used to commonly do the foregoing.   There were times I seen twenty to twenty-five inmates denied a meal in one day.  This caused a lot of inmate-patients to lose large quantities of weight in the TCU in short periods of time.  In two of my other blogs, I explained how Oscar Davis and Darrell Richardson, I believed, died from medical problems associated with being denied large quantities of food/starved over long periods of time.  The Miami Herald newspaper referenced Dade C.I. TCU mentally disabled inmates being denied large quantities of food as punishment in several of the articles they published.  In April, 2016 The New Yorker magazine published an article entitled ‘Madness’ which also mentions the foregoing.  George Mallinckrodt who was a counsellor in the Dade C.I. TCU spoke about inmate-patients being denied large quantities of food in his book ‘Getting Away With Murder.’  This long-term abuse/torturing by denying mentally disabled inmates large quantities of food/starvation was happening in the same Dade C.I. TCU Darren Rainey was murdered in.

A LETTER TO THE PEOPLE OF DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA AND OF THE WORLD, CONCERNING MURDERS AND CORRUPTION IN DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA

I’m in need of any information you can provide me with concerning any African Americans who were killed by Dade County, Florida law enforcement officials and the Dade County, Florida State Attorney didn’t prosecute the case.  Also, I’m in need of any information you have on any type of corruption involving the Dade County Florida State Attorney, Dade County Florida Medical Examiner and Miami-Dade Police Department.  

If you have any newspaper articles or documents you can provide me on any of the foregoing, please send them to my friend Jeremy who manages this blog.  I believe he’ll show me kindness in getting me copies of whatever documents, information, etc. you mail him.  Thank you for your kindness.  

Please share this blog with your friends and anybody you believe can help me with obtaining this information and anybody you believe would like to join us in our fight for the value of life.  Please sign our petition on Change.org entitled THE LIFE OF BLACK, MENTALLY DISABLED MUSLIM PRISONER DARREN RAINEY DOES MATTER.

WHY DIDN’T THE DADE COUNTY FLORIDA STATE ATTORNEY’S OFFICE, MIAMI-DADE POLICE DEPARTMENT AND FLORIDA DEPARTMENT OF CORRECTIONS POLYGRAPH OR VOICE STRESS TEST ME OR ANYBODY IN THE DARREN RAINEY MURDER CASE?

In the last twenty-seven years of my life I’ve had a lot of communications with State and Federal agencies (not as a suspect) in more administrative and criminal investigations than I can remember.  Over these twenty-seven years I’ve learned that law enforcement agencies highly favor polygraph and voice-stress testing as investigative tools to test the credibility of their own staff, witnesses, suspects and those who aid them in investigations.  I’ve never been placed on a polygraph test over these years, but I have been administered voice-stress testing several times.  Also, over these last eighteen years of my life I’ve read several criminal cases where law enforcement agencies used these types of testing for investigative purposes.  Since Darren Rainey’s murder, I’ve asked the Dade County State Attorney’s Office, Miami-Dade Police Department, and Florida Department of Corrections several times to polygraph or voice-stress test me on the things I told them concerning Darren Rainey’s murder.  

These agencies consistently refused to do the foregoing, even though they each have the equipment to conduct said tests and the people trained in administering these tests.  In other words, they don’t have to hire somebody to administer these tests.  

Why do you think they consistently refused to polygraph or voice-stress test me concerning the things I told them about the Darren Rainey murder?  I believe they refused to do the foregoing because they knew beyond all doubt what I told them was the truth about Rainey’s murder and if they tested me, I’d be able to use the results from the test against them to push for a prosecution of those who killed Rainey.  

My 2013 FDC Inmate Grievances I filed on Rainey’s murder also document me asking to be polygraphed or voice-stress tested on what I said concerning Rainey’s murder.  Why didn’t these agencies polygraph or voice-stress test the Dade C.I. staff that killed Rainey and that were working on the night Rainey was killed?  I believe because these agencies knew those who killed Darren Rainey and the Dade C.I. staff that were working on the night Rainey was killed, were lying.  

Since these agencies have refused to polygraph or voice-stress test me, I’m asking for your help.  I believe if I can get anybody to polygraph or voice-stress test me, I can use the results of my testing, to further prove a cover-up, corruption and racism in the Darren Rainey murder case.  I’m absolutely positive I can pass a polygraph or voice-stress test concerning the things I said on the Darren Rainey murder.  If you’re reading this blog and you have the ability to polygraph or voice-stress test me, or arrange to have somebody administer one of these tests to me, will you please contact my friend Jeremy who manages this blog and tell him you’d like to help me with this matter?  Because I’m in prison, I have several restrictions placed on me.  Any law enforcement or State or Federal agency can administer one of these tests to me.  The only other people who can obtain authorization to have one of these tests administered to me are private investigators or contractors, lawyers and the media.  With the proper paperwork, any person can hire a private investigator or contractor to administer one of these tests to me.  If you can help me, I’d really appreciate it.  Also, if you can help me, think about your help as being a way of aiding in the fight for justice for the murder of Darren Rainey and as a way of aiding in the fight for the value of life.  The people I personally know and I, can’t make arrangements to have me receive one of these tests, because if we paid for me to receive one of these tests, people could say the person who gave me the test was bias in favor of my view of things.  I want an unbias tester to administer me one of these tests.  Please share this blog with your friends and anybody you believe would like to join us in our fight for the value of life.  Please sign our petition on Change.org entitled THE LIFE OF BLACK, MENTALLY DISABLED MUSLIM PRISONER DARREN RAINEY DOES MATTER.
