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.

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.

TWO CRIME STOPPER CALLS CONTEND THE KKK WERE CONSPIRING TO KILL HAROLD HEMPSTEAD AND FLORIDA DEPARTMENT OF CORRECTIONS STAFF WERE ALTERING PAPERWORK ON HAROLD HEMPSTEAD

Image result for okeechobee correctional institution

On 5/23/16 when I was placed in confinement under investigation at Martin Correctional Institution, Cpt. Scarpatti told me that somebody called the Martin C.I. Warden and the Florida Department of Corrections (FDC) Main Office saying there was a conspiracy to kill me.  

On 5/24/16 I was transferred to Okeehobee C.I.  Over the next about six weeks, FDC made several inconsistent statements to people in society contending different reasons why I was placed in confinement on 5/23/16.  Not long after I arrived at Okeechobee C.I. I was interviewed by two men professing to be Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) agents, alleging they were investigating a conspiracy to kill me.  A few months after I arrived at Okeechobee C.I. I was advised by the Okeechobee C.I. Warden that two calls were made to the Treasure Coast Crime Stoppers contending that FDC prison staff were conspiring to kill me and FDC prison staff with the Inspector General’s Office were altering paperwork concerning me.  The paperwork he was reading from also made reference to prison staff who were allegedly conspiring to kill me being members of the KKK.  The two Crime Stoppers case numbers that appeared on the paperwork he was reading from were 104-65509 and 104-65662.  Because I was never placed in Confinement or Protection over the foregoing, I was caused to believe FDC was trying to sweep these alleged calls under the rug.  This caused me to think there might have been some truthfulness to these calls.  In December 2016, I was transferred from Okeechobee C.I. to Hardee C.I.  I felt that pursuing an investigation into these calls more seriously while at Hardee C.I. would be in my best interest so in January 2017 I drafted a sworn affidavit wherein I provided all the details I knew on these alleged calls.  I mailed this sworn affidavit to approximately two dozen people in the State and Federal Government, media, Civil Rights groups, etc..  As of the date that I’m writing this blog, I haven’t been able to find out who was behind these alleged calls to Crime Stoppers or any new information other than what I placed in my January 2017 sworn affidavit.  I mailed my sister Windy and Jeremy copies of this January 2017 sworn affidavit.  I don’t if this sworn affidavit has been placed on this blog yet.  If it has, I hope that my friend Jeremy provides a note at the end of this blog on how you can find this sworn affidavit on this blog-site.

The KKK is the oldest Caucasian brotherhood in Florida.  Since the KKK started being rebuilt in the nineteen twenties, they’ve strived to get their members in positions where they can be most effective in strengthening up their brotherhood and spreading their beliefs to Caucasians that can further their goals.  The KKK still has low-ranking knights and it is oftentimes the low-ranking knights that have done things that are deemed inappropriate, that have got the attention of the media (and government) and that oppose the primary goals of the KKK.  The KKK has bylaws that explain that the KKK is supposed to be a secret society and that only literature and activities approved by the Imperial Grand Wizard can be made known or public to those who are outside of the brotherhood.  It is a well-known fact by FDC staff and inmates that a very large quantity of FDC staff are members of the KKK and to think that the South  (and especially Florida) doesn’t no longer have a large number of racist and KKK members in it, is to not know the history of the South and Florida.

It is sad that there’s still so much racism in our country and especially in Florida but it’s a fact that we have to accept.  I know that my quest for justice for the murder of Darren Rainey and my activism against the unconstitutional conditions of FDC has brought a lot of attention and legal related issues to an agency that employs a large number of KKK members.  Did I upset the Florida KKK members by doing the foregoing?  I know that since 2014 FDC staff have called me all types of racial related names for taking a stand for a dead black man (Darren Rainey), such as ‘The Nigger Activist,’ ‘Nigger-Lover’ and ‘Nigger in White Man Skin, etc..  Also, I know that FDC is well aware of my communications with outside agencies concerning criminal activity and racism in FDC.  

If anyone reading this blog can help me obtain an audio copy or verbatim printout of the alleged Crime Stopper calls mentioned herein I’d greatly appreciate it.  

I’m a Protestant Reformed Presbyterian-in-America Christian who believes that I’m biblically commanded to take a stand for the value of life and help those who cannot help themselves.  I believe all that people are equal.  If Darren Rainey was an oriental man, Spanish man, a member of the KKK, or blue, green or orange man I still would of took a stand for the value of his life.  Why?  Because right is right and wrong is wrong.  Will you please share this blog with your friends and anybody you believe would like to join us in our fight for the value of life?  Will you please sign our petition on Change.org entitled THE LIFE OF BLACK, MENTALLY DISABLED MUSLIM PRISONER DARREN RAINEY DOES MATTER.

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.

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.

DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA, MEDICAL EXAMINER DR LEW’S EXCUSE AS TO WHY DARREN RAINEY’S BODY WAS HOT BEFORE AND AFTER HIS DEATH

Since Darren Rainey’s murder, I thought one of the strongest pieces of evidence that proved Rainey’s murder was the condition of his body after he was found dead in the shower.  I wasn’t the only person that seen Rainey’s body after he was killed.  The Dade County State Attorney’s 3/17/17 memorandum shows that several other inmates and state officials also seen his body.  A review of their statements will show they seen the same thing I seen.  Rainey’s body looked burned with his skin slipping off him.

I never thought Dr Lew with the Miami-Dade Medical Examiner’s Office would refuse to make a ruling on how Rainey died until she could somehow find a way to say Rainey died from something other than a medical problem that was brought about as a result of the extreme heat and steam in the  shower, caused by the water that, according to Dade C.I. Cpt. Dixon, tested at 160°F.

Causation is very important in law.  If the heat and steam in the shower that was caused by how hot the shower water was, caused Rainey to have a medical problem that killed him, then those who placed Rainey in the shower are liable of murder, if they placed Rainey in the shower with the intent to punish him.  In other words if the Dade C.I. staff made the water in the shower hot as a way to punish Rainey.

Since it was contended from the beginning that Dade C.I. staff used the shower to punish the mentally disabled, Dr Lew had to find a way to attack the steam and heat in the shower (the causation in the case.)

It took Dr Lew from June 24, 2012 till January 20, 2016 (or later) to come up with a way to explain away the above.  Dr Lew knew Rainey had the mental condition schizophrenia and that he was prescribed Haloperidol, so she started her research with the foregoing.  During her research on the foregoing she possibly found something that motivated her to contend Rainey had an undiagnosed medical condition, to wit “Atherosclerotic Heart Disease.”  Now obviously nothing existed to support Rainey having this type of heart disease other than Dr Lew’s statement.  Also, if Rainey actually had undiagnosed “Atherosclerotic Heart Disease” the foregoing was obviously not bad enough to cause Rainey any medical problems while he was alive.

After years of looking and Dr Lew coming up with the foregoing, it allowed Dr Lew to say the following.  You’ll be surprised at the outrageousness of what she said.  Starting at the last paragraph on pg.52 of the Dade County, Florida, State Attorney’s 3/17/17 memorandum, it states:

“Dr Lew notes two important aspects and correlations regarding Rainey’s mental and medical conditions and his prescribed medication.  The first is that ‘schizophrenic patients have an increased mortality rate over the general population!’  Further, Dr Lew advised that ‘schizophrenic patients may have a dysfunction of the autonomic nervous system which could increase the risk of cardio-vascular events.’  As previously described, Dr Lew found evidence during the autopsy of atherosclerotic heart disease and made it one of her autopsy findings.  Second, with respect to psychotropic medications, Dr Lew noted that certain types of anti-psychotic medications, including Haloperidol, have been known to ‘impair’ thermoregulation (48) and contribute to hyperthermia (49).  In addition Dr Lew noted that people with schizophrenia have a ‘dysregulation of body temperature (50) including an impaired ability to compensate to heat-stress.’  Therefore, placing Rainey in the shower atmosphere for a prolonged period of time with his mental condition (schizophrenia) could have created an impaired ability to deal with heat stress.  In that same vein, the medication Haloperidol could cause a physiological event which could create a pre-disposition to sudden cardiac death.”

The above says in simple terms that Rainey’s schizophrenia, heart disease and medication he was taking caused him to overheat, have a heart attack and die in the shower.  According to this report, if you know anybody with schizophrenia taking anti-psychotic medication, they probably could have heart problems and overheat like a car.  To me this is absolutely crazy.  For Dr Lew to say such a far-fetched, outrageous thing instead of just stating what the evidence shows as to why Rainey’s body was hot before and after his death, shows us the extent that people will go through to try and cover up another brutal killing of an African American.  It is obvious that the reason Rainey’s body was hot before and after his death was because Rainey was in a shower that, according to Cpt. Dixon, had water that tested 160°F.

Have you ever heard the saying the more outrageous the story is, the higher the chance is that it’s not true?  What is more logical?

Option One:

Rainey’s body was hot before and after his death because he had undiagnosed atherosclerotic heart disease, schizophrenia, and was prescribed a common mental health medicine and these things caused him to overheat.

Option Two:

Rainey’s body was hot before and after his death because he was in a shower that had a water temperature of 160°F, according to Cpt. Dixon.

The answer is obvious, the most logical answer is Option 2.

Why would Dr Lew do the foregoing?  I’m not sure, but I can think of one very reasonable answer.  The Miami-Dade County Medical Examiner’s Office has been working closely with the Miami-Dade Police Department and Dade County State Attorney’s Office for a very, very long time.  These three agencies have obvious developed a relationship with each other.  I don’t believe anybody from the Miami-Dade Police Department or Dade County State Attorney’s Office told Dr Lew to find some way to say Rainey’s body was hot before and after he died, other than because the water in the shower Rainey was killed in was hot, because they didn’t want to prosecute Rainey’s killers for whatever reason.  I believe somebody from the Miami-Dade Police Department and/or Dade County State Attorney’s Office encouraged Dr Lew from 2012 till 2016 to find a way to say Rainey’s body was hot before and after he died, for any reason other than the water in the shower being hot, because the shower wasn’t hot.  Those who told Dr Lew the foregoing knew they were lying because the evidence shows the water was hot.  This caused Dr Lew to know that those involved with the investigation and prosecution of the case didn’t want to prosecute a murder case, so Dr Lew looked and looked and looked until she created the far-fetched story listed above.

Why did those involved with the investigation and prosecution not want to prosecute Rainey’s killers?  Those who killed Rainey were and still are law enforcement officials.  Rainey was a poor, black, mentally disabled, Muslim prisoner who was in prison for a small amount of crack cocaine.  To them Rainey was a scum-bag nobody and his life didn’t matter.  How they seen it was why would they waste their time, money and resources to prosecute law enforcement officials for killing Rainey when Rainey’s life didn’t matter.  How many times have we seen African Americans get killed by law enforcement officials in our nation and excuses are made as to why the killers are not prosecuted?  When is this going to stop?  We must all join together in love and unity and take a stand for the value of life.  God made us all equal and we have to stop saying that certain people’s lives don’t matter like the babies that are aborted, African Americans, the mentally disabled and Muslims.  We as a nation have laws and they should be followed.  If we continue to degrade the value of lives of certain classes of people, one day we all can be placed in a class by others who believe our lives don’t matter.  I pray that we all join hands together in love and unity and do all that we can in accordance with the law to take a stand for the value of life and to show that
