WHAT DO THE REPORTS FROM THE FDC INSPECTOR GENERAL’S OFFICE ON THE DADE C.I. TCU IN 2011 AND 2012 SHOW?

LesterFernandez

On 3/17/17 I was ghosted out of the Florida Department of Corrections (FDC) and Involuntary Interstate Compacted to the Tennessee Department of Corrections (TDOC) with none of my law work or property I had in FDC.  Since my 3/17/17 arrival to TDOC, I haven’t had any access to Florida law.  In this blog, I’m going to from memory attempt to address three Florida statutes that concern the FDC Inspector General’s Office, I believe the Florida Statute numbers I’m going to be addressing are Florida Statutes 944.31, 944.32 and 944.33.  I believe Florida Statute 944.31 explains the duties of FDC Inspector Generals and one of the things it says they’re obligated to do it so conduct a physical inspection of all the institutions in FDC once a year.  This Florida Statute shows us that in 2011 and 2012 the FDC Inspector General’s Office was obligated, and more than likely did conduct a physical inspection of the Dade C.I. Transitional Care Unit.  If they conducted this inspection this statute would’ve obligated them to look in the closet where the unlawful shower equipment was, next to the shower stall that Darren Rainey was killed in.  This means they would’ve seen the unlawfully rigged shower that killed Rainey, and they took no action to order the shower equipment be disconnected.  I believe Florida Statute 944.32 says the FDC Inspector General’s Office is obligated to complete a written report on their physical inspections of all the institutions they physically inspect.  Also, I believe Florida Statute 944.33 explains what type of trouble an FDC Inspector General can get in if they don’t complete written reports of the physical inspections of the institutions in FDC.

Please google the Florida statutes and read them.  From my knowledge of these statutes, what they say hasn’t changed from 2011 till the present.  I’d really like to obtain a copy of the FDC Inspector General’s Reports of the Dade C.I. TCU from 2011 and 2012 and see if they mention the unlawful shower that killed Darren Rainey.  Also, to see, if they do mention said shower, what they say about said shower in their reports.  I know from seeing the illegal shower where Rainey was killed, in the Dade C.I. TCU in 2011 and 2012 that it was there when they conducted their physical inspections in these years.  These reports could possibly be evidence that shows us the FDC Inspector General’s Office knew that the unlawful shower/torturing device that killed Rainey was in the Dade C.I. TCU and they took no action to have it disconnected but instead allowed it to be used as a torturing device to punish and kill mentally disabled inmates.

WHY DIDN’T THE DADE COUNTY STATE ATTORNEY PROVIDE CLEAR VIDEO FOOTAGE ON THE DARREN RAINEY MURDER TO THE MEDIA, ETC.?

Darren Rainey

In the beginning of 2012, while I was incarcerated in the Dade Correctional Institution Transitional Care Unit (TCU), I was told by several Lieutenants, Sergeants and officers that a new camera system had been installed in the TCU, that the new camera system was digital, that it could tell if a dime on the ground was on heads or tails and it had very clear footage.  The reason why so many security staff told me the foregoing was because I was the primary Orderly for all the shifts and Lieutenants in the TCU and they wanted to make sure I knew a new camera system was watching security and I when we were working on the floor in the TCU.  Security always kept me aware of issues with the mounted camera system solely because a lot of bad things happened in the TCU, and the cameras were always a threat to the staff when the cameras were operating.  My diary from 2012, that State, Federal officials and the media have, shows that in 2012 there was multiple staff-related investigations into issues that happened in the TCU.  Because I was the primary Orderly for security, I was often placed under investigation with the staff, solely because I was often present when security staff were doing things they shouldn’t have been doing.  There’s several 2012 entries in my diary that talk about the mounted security cameras.  The reason I’m bringing this up is I know from personal knowledge how clear the footage was from the mounted digital cameras in the TCU in 2012 and I’ve been told the camera footage from 2012 in the Darren Rainey murder case that the Dade County Florida State Attorney released to the media and others was unclear / blury.  I haven’t personally got a chance to view the camera footage but two people who have the video footage on the Rainey murder told me how unclear / blury the footage is that they received from the Dade County State Attorney.  Did the Florida Department of Corrections (FDC) intentionally provide the Miami-Dade Police Department and Dade County State Attorney with unclear / blury video footage from the night Rainey was murdered and this is why the Dade County State Attorney provided unclear / blury camera footage to the media etc?  Did FDC provide clear video footage to the police and the Dade County Florida State Attorney intentionally provided unlcear / blury camera footage to the media etc. to aid in their attempt to cover up Rainey’s murder?  I don’t know the answers to these questions.  I just know that my 2012 diary proves I had several dealings with the mounted security cameras and from my personal experiences with them and knowledge of them, the footage from said mounted security cameras were very clear.  This is another issue / problem with the Rainey case I wanted to bring to light.  Please share this blog with your friends and with 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.

THE PHOTOGRAPHS OF DARREN RAINEY’S BODY RELEASED IN A 5/6/17 MIAMI HERALD ARTICLE PROVE THE CONDITION OF DARREN RAINEY’S SKIN

On 3/17/17 when I was ghosted out of the Florida Department of Corrections (FDC) at 3:30 am, the Dade County Florida State Attorney released their written decision to not prosecute Rainey’s killers.  About ten days after my 3/17/17 ghosting out of Florida against my will, I received the Dade County State Attorney’s 3/17/17 foregoing written decision and I was advised that since 3/17/17 the Dade County Florida State Attorney had told the media and numerous other people that one of the primary reasons they weren’t going to prosecute Rainey’s killers was because Darren Rainey’s skin allegedly wasn’t burned.  Now the people of Dade County Florida and the whole World can see the condition of Rainey’s skin when he was taken out of the shower, in the photographs of Darren Rainey’s dead body that the Miami Herald newspaper released on 5/6/17.

Now everybody can see why several inmates, two Dade C.I. security staff, and FDC Inspector General, three nurses, a Fire-Rescue Lieutenant and I, all said that Darren Rainey’s skin was burned.  Now everybody can see what I saw on the night Darren Rainey was murdered.  Now everybody can see that the Dade County Florida State Attorney and Medical Examiner didn’t uphold their oaths to be truthful when they both said Darren Rainey’s skin wasn’t burned.  The photographs the Miami Herald newspaper published in an article on 5/6/17 show how much the life of poor, black, mentally disabled, Muslim prisoner Darren Rainey don’t matter to the Miami-Dade Police Department, Dade County Florida State Attorney, and the Dade County Florida Medical Examiner.  

Now you can see what they did to Rainey, what do you think about this case?  Do you think it’s right what they did to Rainey?  Do you think it’s right that the Dade County Florida State Attorney is allowing Rainey’s killers to stay free?  Do you think it’s right that the Dade County Florida State Attorney and Medical Examiner lied to you and everybody in saying Rainey’s skin wasn’t burned?  My desire is to move you to join our fight for justice for Rainey and 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.

Publisher’s note:  The canvas shoe you can see in the shower is the same shoe that a convict was ordered to fill with Mr Rainey’s skin, the day after he died in the locked shower.  This convict was later ordered to “throw it in the trash.”  Thus a crime-scene was destroyed, with collusion from the police and prison authorities.

WILL YOU PLEASE PROVIDE ME WITH INFORMATION ON THE VIDEO FOOTAGE FROM THE DARREN RAINEY MURDER?

In the Dade County, Florida State Attorney’s 3/17/17 witten decision to not prosecute Darren Rainey’s killers, they have an Exhibit 7 which they say is a timeline from the mounted security cameras in Wing J3 of the Dade Correctional Institution Transitional Care Unit (TCU).  I was told that several people now have copies of the footage that the Dade County State Attorney alleges their timeline in their Exhibit 7 came from.  

As of the date I’m writing this blog, I haven’t been able to review any of the alleged actual footage the Dade County State Attorney released in the Rainey murder case.

If you’re reading this blog and you have a copy of the video footage that the Dade County Florida State Attorney allegedly used to make their timeline in their Exhibit 7, will you please help me by doing the following:

  1. The video footage allegedly starts at 7:38:54 and runs to 9:33:17.  That is a total of fifty-four minutes and twenty-three seconds.  Will you please use a watch and time the video footage you have from start (7:38:54) to finish (9:33:17) and let me know if it’s fifty-four minutes and twenty-three seconds long?
  2. The timeline in the Dade County Florida State Attorney’s Exhibit 7 shows no entries between 8:17:36 and 8:56.  Will you please let me know if the time stamp on the video footage you have jumps from 8:17:36 to 8:56, or if it shows the seconds and minutes that happened between these two listed times?  Will you please help me with the foregoing?  Please mail me your findings and/or send them to my friend Jeremy that manages this blog.  I really appreciate it.

WHY AREN’T THERE ANY REFERENCES TO GREGORY SHEVLIN IN DADE C.I. OFC. WILLIAMS’ HOUSING UNIT LOG?

In another blog I explained why inmate Gregory Shevlin was an important witness in the Darren Rainey murder and the events that happened with Shevlin on the night Rainey was murdered.  In the Dade County Florida State Attorney’s 3/17/17  decision to not prosecute the staff who murdered Rainey, their ‘Exhibit One’ is Ofc. Williams’ Housing Unit Log from the night Rainey was murdered.  That log makes no reference to anything with Shevlin.  Did Ofc. Williams and the Dade C.I. staff working on the night Rainey was killed intentionally not place any references to Shevlin in the Housing Unit Log?  Ofc. Williams was the Booth Ofc. for the 4:00 pm till 12:00 am shift.  Did the Booth Ofc. for the 12:00 am till 4:00 pm shift make any references to what happened with Shevlin on the night Rainey was killed in her log for 12:00 am till 4:00 pm on 6/24/12?  Did the Dade County State Attorney and Miami-Dade Police Department investigate this issue?  If they didn’t, why not?  The log would aid in proving the events that happened on the night  Rainey was killed.

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.

YOU WON’T KNOW UNLESS YOU ASK – CAN A PERSON SEE THROUGH A WHITE SHEET?

The Dade County, Florida State Attorney’s Office contended that on the night Darren Rainey was killed, a sheet was covering my cell door window at different times so I allegedly wasn’t able to see everything I said I seen.  They don’t contest that I seen certain things, just that the ‘sheet’ allegedly prohibited me from seeing everything.  

I found from many years of experience that people in society who’ve never been incarcerated in Florida and/or have no knowledge of the life of the incarcerated, are not aware of a lot of things that would at first sound outrageous to them if they didn’t first inquire for more details.  For instance, if I said I could be in a locked cell in a Confinement Unit with the whole wing of prisoners in their locked Confinement Cells and I could pass to other prisoners or obtain from other prisoners in their locked cells books, canteen items, clothes, writing supplies etc. without the help of any person outside the locked cells, most people in society would think that I was lying.  Especially if I said it didn’t matter if I or the other prisoner(s) were on the first or second tier.  Why would most think I was lying?  Because they don’t know what ‘fishing’ is.  If I said I could do the foregoing to anybody who was ever incarcerated in the Florida prison system (FDC,) they would know I could do such by ‘fishing.’  All Florida prisoners know what ‘fishing’ is.  

What is ‘fishing.’  In order to know what ‘fishing’ is I’ll first have to tell you how we make ‘fishing lines’ and a ‘car.’  

We make a ‘fishing line’ by taking thread out of a sheet, boxers, pants or shirt and tying all the strings together at their ends until we get our fishing line as long as we need it.  We make a ‘car’ by emptying all the toothpaste out of a toothpaste tube, cutting off the side of the tube from about an inch under where the toothpaste comes out, filling the empty tube with soap powder filed from a bar of soap and mixed with water.  We use the water to make the soap powder hard, the length and width of the tube and less than a quarter inch thick.  We then tie the tube closed (with the hard soap powder in it) with one of the ends of the fishing line.  We then have a ‘fishing line’ with a ‘car’ at the end of it.  With the foregoing, I can be in my locked cell, hold on to one side of my fishing line and push my car under my cell door in the direction to and under another inmate’s locked cell door.  We can then pass anything we want from my cell to his, or from his to mine, by tying it on the car or line.  The more experience you have fishing, the better you get at it.  We use ramps to fish from the upper tier to the lower tier.  We fish in our vents, and even in our toilets.  We fish out the top of our cell doors with wet toilet-paper balls we use to bounce off our cell doors until they fly upstairs.  The list goes on and on.

I’m going to name just a few more things we do in prison but I’m not going to explain the details on these because I don’t have the space to do it.

  1. Prisoners make wine from scratch.
  2. Prisoners make wall-safes to hide their contraband, with screws and locks.
  3. Prisoners can use a plastic mirror sold in the canteen to hide a cellphone or drugs in the water in a toilet.  You can look in the toilet and not see it and the phone or drugs won’t be flushed away.  

All these things sound strange to most people in society but if they were explained, like ‘fishing,’ they would then not sound so strange.  When the Miami-Dade Police Department interviewed me in June 2014, they were too busy trying to limit me on what I could or couldn’t say instead of asking me how I could see.  In June 2014 when I was interviewed I had been incarcerated for fifteen years straight.  After fifteen straight years of incarceration it was only common sense to me that inmates can see out their cell doors with a sheet covering the window.  Inmates placing sheets on their cell doors covering the windows is very common for inmates in Florida.  We place sheets on our cell doors every time we use the bathroom and every time we want privacy for any reason.  Having been incarcerated for fifteen years in June 2014, I had placed sheets on my cell doors one to five times a day every day for fifteen years straight.  Inmates in the Florida prison system (FDC) are issued two bed-sheets a piece.  Most inmates use one sheet to cover their bed and one sheet for the collar on their bed.  The collar-sheet is also used to cover the cell door window, to cover the shower door when they shower, etc..  Since the collar-sheet is used for so many different things, inmates usually strive to keep that sheet clean.  The more the sheet is washed, the thinner it gets.  If you were to take any white sheet off your bed, cover a window with it, stand on one side of the sheet with the light off and look through the sheet into a room (or outside) that is full of light, you’ll be able to see everything on the other side (even if the white sheet is new).  If the light is on in the room you’re in, and in the room on the other side of the sheet, you’ll still be able to see through the sheet.  

Even though this is common sense, the Dade County, Florida State Attorney contended I couldn’t see through the white sheet I allegedly had hanging in my cell door at different times on the night Rainey was killed.  

Not only was my sheet old, but it had been washed with bleach dozens if not hundreds of times.  The MDPD and Miami Dade State Attorney never once mentioned a sheet on my cell door at specific times on the night Rainey was killed.  I believe they never once questioned me about the foregoing because they had common sense to know anybody could see through a white sheet set up like I mentioned in this blog.  I also believe the Dade County State Attorney has attempted to twist this common sense fact and try to get people to believe I (and anybody else) could never see through a white sheet how I present the matter herein.  

This is just another matter that the Dade County State Attorney has attempted to twist in the Darren Rainey case.  The Rainey case should send out a clear statement to the people of Dade County, Florida and the World that the Dade County State Attorney will do everything possible to let those who killed Rainey continue to walk the streets of Dade County, Florida as free men.
