Miami Gardens Mayor challenged over murderous policeman

Oliver G. Gilbert III, Mayor,

18605 Northwest 27th Avenue,

Miami Gardens,

Florida 33056.

I authored a book named “Department of Corruption.  Darren Rainey.  The Untold Story.”  This book can be located at crusaderbooks.com or lulupublishing.com.

In my book I explain the following facts concerning Miami Gardens Police Officer Roland Clarke:

1) I personally knew him between 2010 and May 2014 when he was a security officer at Dade Correctional Institution.

2) For a six-month period I witnessed Roland Clarke use a shower that reached temperatures in excess of 160 degrees as a torturing device to punish mentally-disabled inmates.  Darren Rainey was the fifth mentally-disabled inmate that Roland Clarke placed in the hot water shower.

3) I witnessed the June 23rd, 2012, murder of Darren Rainey.

4) During the years that I knew Roland Clarke, I also witnessed him physically abuse inmates, poison their food with foreign substances such as medicines, laxatives, urine and feces;  and lie to his supervisors concerning his misconduct and the misconduct of other staff who worked with him.

In my book I also provide substantial facts showing that Roland Clarke murdered Darren Rainey.

Finally my book explains that covert recordings were obtained of Roland Clarke in 2013 and 2014 admitting to using the hot water shower as a torturing-device to punish mentally-disabled inmates and to murdering Darren Rainey.

The citizens of Miami Gardens have a right to expect that the law-enforcement officers, who are payed tax-payer’s money to protect them, not be murders with a history of violating the civil rights of people under his authority.

Polygraph test and voice-stress test are admissible in administrative proceedings.

As mayor of Miami Gardens you have the authority to direct that officer Roland Clarke receive a polygraph test or voice-stress test about murdering Darren Rainey, his history of using a shower that reached temperatures in excess of 160 degrees to punish mentally-disabled inmates, and his history of violating the civil-rights of individuals.  Will you please direct that officer Roland Clarke receive a polygraph test or voice-stress test about these matters?

Thank you for your time and please feel free to contact me if I can be of any assistance.

Sincerely,

WHAT IS MORE IMPORTANT: PROTECTING FEDERAL INVESTIGATION INTO TAX & CREDIT-CARD FRAUD IN FLORIDA DEPARTMENT OF CORRECTIONS OR JUSTICE FOR THE MURDER OF DARREN RAINEY?

Tax and credit-card fraud have been happening in large levels in Florida Department of Corrections (FDC) for close to two decades.  When I was working for the FDC Inspector General’s Office as a Confidential Informant, I was involved in investigation into individuals who were filing more than 100 tax returns a year.  All of the tax-returns they were filing ranged between $1,200 and $4,800.  As it relates to credit-card fraud, I can’t count how many inmates I’ve known over the last decade who have processed hundreds of credit-card applications a year over their cell-phones.  The majority of inmates who engage in tax and credit-card fraud in FDC have staff helping them with their fraud.  From personal knowledge I understand the Federal Government’s interest in protecting their investigation into organized fraud in FDC.

I also hope that the Federal Government understands how important it is to protect their investigations.  For this reason I hope everybody understands that justice for the murder of Darren Rainey must happen.  In my book “DEPARTMENT OF CORRUPTION – Darren Rainey – The Untold Story” I explained in detail the audio recordings that were covertly obtained in 2013 and 2014 of Roland Clarke at Dade C.I. admitting to torturing mentally disabled inmates and killing Darren Rainey.  The Government has copies of the recordings.  I pray that the recordings are used to support prosecuting those involved with killing Rainey.  Those friends of mine who have copies of the recordings I mentioned in my “Department of Corruption” book, know what circumstances to release the recordings without my direction.

To show how serious I am, I will provide the following information for people to start investigation:

(1)  In 2008 a high-ranking federal official in Tallahassee, Florida directed the FDC Inspector General’s Office to investigate information I supplied the federal official concerning Washington C.I. Main Unit – now Northwest Florida Reception Center.

(2)  In 2009 FDC Inspector General James Hayden at Wakulla C.I. Annex requested that his supervisors approve my transfer from Wakulla C.I. Annex because my identity as an informant had been disclosed.

(3)  I’ve been involved with investigations in FDC as an informant since 2002.

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.

WHAT IS DADE COUNTY MEDICAL EXAMINER DR LEW TRYING TO HIDE ON THE DARREN RAINEY CASE?

On 4/18/17 I was told the Miami Herald published an article on how Dade County Medical Examiner Dr Lew is refusing to allow an independent medical examiner to review the skin and blood samples etc. from Darren Rainey that are the records to support her findings.  Also, I was told the reason why Dr Lew is doing the foregoing is because she’s alleging the skin and blood samples etc. that the independent examiner wants to review are not public records.  If  that was true then why do medical examiners across Florida disagree with her.  You can find several articles by the Miami Herald newspaper on prison deaths that county medical examiners across Florida allowed independent medical examiners to look at the skin, blood etc. samples in other prison death cases.  Also, you can find several other cases in Florida where county medical examiners allowed independent examiners to examine skin, blood etc. samples in murders and deaths they were assigned to.  Were all the medical examiners in Florida legally wrong for doing what they did and only Dr Lew’s office is right?  Of course not.  Florida lawyers also say Dr Lew’s office is legally wrong.  I can only think of two logical reasons why Dr Lew’s office would refuse to allow an independent medical examiner to review the skin, blood etc. samples from Darren Rainey.  Dr Lew and the Dade County State Attorney know the skin samples prove Rainey’s skin was burned and that he didn’t die like Dr Lew alleged.  

Option One:  They don’t want the independent examiner to expose Dr Lew’s lies, so they’re going to fight tooth and nail to prevent the foregoing.  

Option Two:  Dr Lew refused to allow the independent examiner to review the record samples from Rainey until she had time to replace Rainey’s record samples with another dead person’s samples.  

These are the only two logical reasons I can come up with.  If you can think of another one will you please share it with me?  In other blogs I addressed problems with Dr Lew’s findings and how a lot of the reasons why Dade County officials don’t want to prosecute Rainey’s killers is because Rainey was a poor, black, mentally disabled Muslim prisoner and to them Rainey’s life wasn’t worth how much it’ll cost to prosecute Rainey’s killers.  

I haven’t yet explained the impact the Rainey case would have on the Florida Department of Corrections (FDC) and Florida and how much it’ll cost these two entities if a murder prosecution was instituted (and was successful.)  I believe it’s fair to say that if the Dade County Florida State Attorney (and Dr Lew) said Rainey was killed based on the conditions in the shower it would show the DOJ and the people of the World the extent of the evil to which FDC staff will subject inmates.  It would more than likely cause the DOJ (and the people of the World) to see that the DOJ (or some type of independent oversight committee) really needs to take over, supervise, monitor FDC and it would lead to millions and millions of dollars in liability and problems for FDC that they’d have to pay to have fixed to prevent future inmates from being harmed.  

Despite all of the things I’ve mentioned, these things shouldn’t matter.  Those who killed Rainey shouldn’t be allowed to remain free and Rainey’s killers should be prosecuted.  If Rainey’s killers would be prosecuted their prosecution would be a statement to all that the lives of poor people, black people, mentally disabled people, Muslims and prisoners matter.  By not prosecuting Rainey’s killers it is a clear statement that the lives of the lives of these people don’t matter and the life of poor, black, mentally disabled Muslim prisoner Darren Rainey doesn’t matter to Dade County Medical Examiner Dr Lew, and to the Dade County, Florida State Attorney who led Dr Lew to make false findings on Darren Rainey’s murder.

WHO IS GREGORY SHEVLIN? AN IMPORTANT WITNESS IN THE DARREN RAINEY MURDER CASE

Gregory Shevlin was one of the most worked orderlies in the Dade C.I. Transitional Care Unit in 2011 and 2012.  We worked together as orderlies more days than any other orderlies in the TCU in 2011 and 2012.  On the day Darren Rainey was killed Shevlin was one of the two orderlies working.  I didn’t know the events that happened with Shevlin on the night Rainey was murdered until a few days after Rainey’s murder.  On the day Rainey was murdered, Shevlin slept in Wing J1 and I slept in Wing J3 of the TCU.  A few days after Rainey was murdered, I was able to see Shevlin for the first time since Rainey’s murder where I could actually speak with him.  It was at a group meeting with several other inmates.  Shevlin was expressing to Dr Cesar and the rest of the group that he was mad because Sgt. Fanfan wrote him a Disciplinary Report for refusing to clean up the feaces in Darren Rainey’s cell on the night Rainey was killed.  Shevlin said that on the night Rainey was killed, after Ofc. Clarke took Rainey out of his cell to escort him to the shower, Sgt. Fanfan told Shevlin to clean Rainey’s cell.  Shevlin said that when he looked in Rainey’s cell and seen the feaces, he told Sgt. Fanfan he wasn’t “going to clean it up,” to “get Hempstead.”  

Sgt. Fanfan then told Shevlin to lockdown in his cell and that he would be receiving a Disciplinary Report for disobeying a verbal order.  Shevlin said when he got back to his cell he was mad so he took a razor and made a big cut on the top (not the palm) of his hand.  Shevlin further said that as Sgt. Fanfan and the security staff dealt with the issues going on with Darren Rainey, he (Shevlin) stood in his cell bleeding.  He said security staff refused to help him so he almost bleed out and had to go to the hospital late on the night Rainey was killed.  Shevlin knew I had been studying law for a long time, so while he was sharing the foregoing with all of us, he asked if I’d help him “fight the Disciplinary Report.”  He wanted to get it thrown-out.  I of course said yes.  I wanted to see the Disciplinary Report right away.  I knew the Disciplinary Report and the events that happened with Shevlin on the night Darren Rainey was killed was more evidence to prove Rainey’s murder.  

Gregory Shevlin’s nickname was ‘New York.’  He was a very loud and vocal inmate when he wanted to be.  The Disciplinary Report Shevlin received and the medical records relating to Shevlin cutting his hand on the night Rainey was killed are evidence.  Another thing that I’d like to point out is that when prison staff, medical staff and law enforcement were at Dade C.I. on the night of Rainey’s murder, Shevlin was in the same general area of all of these people.  If I know Gregory Shevlin like I believe I do, I can assure that my old vocal work-partner made sure that everybody he seen on the night Rainey was killed knew what was going on with him (Shevlin.)  

Finally, the cell Shevlin was housed in on the night Rainey was killed (even though it was in Wing J1) had a direct view of the shower Rainey was killed in (even though the shower was in Wing J3.)  What this means is, when Shevlin was in his cell bleeding on the night Rainey was killed, he could see (but not hear) everything going on with Rainey in Wing J3.

Obviously all of the foregoing made Gregory Shevlin a very important witness and all the documents relating to what happened with Shevlin are very important to prove Darren Rainey’s murder.  I provided all of this information and a lot more details to the MDPD, Dade County Medical Examiner and State Attorney, and Department of Justice and FBI.  When I seen on page 42 of the Dade County, Florida State Attorney’s 3/17/17 written decision to not prosecute Rainey’s killers, that the MDPD interviewed Shevlin while he was still housed in the Dade C.I. TCU, I could only say “why?”  

Why would the MDPD interview Shevlin while he was housed in the Dade C.I. TCU where inmate-patients had a long history of being murdered, tortured, starved and abused?  They knew Shevlin was an important witness and that he’d have to be willing to place his life in danger to speak about what he knew about the Darren Rainey murder while he was still housed in the TCU.  

Why would they place Shevlin’s life in danger?  The detective assigned to the Darren Rainey murder case had been in law enforcement for many, many years.  They knew what they were doing.  They knew they were placing Shevlin in danger.  They knew they were placing Shevlin in a position to not tell them (the police) everything he witnessed on the night Rainey was killed.  The MDPD interviewed Gregory Shevlin while he was housed in the Dade C.I. TCU because they didn’t want Shevlin to tell them what he witnessed and knew about the Rainey murder.  

Another thing I noticed when I was reading the Dade County State Attorney’s 3/17/17 decision to not prosecute Rainey’s killers was there was no references to the Disciplinary Report Shevlin received or any of the other documents relating to what happened with Shevlin on the night Rainey was killed.  I believe it’s reasonable to say the State Attorney, police and medical examiner in the Rainey case didn’t even try to obtain the foregoing report and documents.  Why?  Because these agencies didn’t want to prosecute Rainey’s killers so they didn’t take the investigation into Rainey’s murder serious and the police interviewed Shevlin in the Dade C.I. TCU knowing that would place him in a position to not talk about what he witnessed and knew about Rainey’s murder.  Why do you think all these problems have happened with the Rainey case that I’ve presented and will continue to present if it’s God’s will?  I believe the answer is obvious, and so obvious it really doesn’t require repeating because of how many times I mentioned it in other blogs.  However, because this might be the first blog you read that was written by me, I’m compelled to state again what I’ve stated in so many other blogs.  To the Dade County, Florida State Attorney and Miami-Dade Police Department, Rainey’s life wasn’t worth how much it’d cost to prosecute his killers.  Why?  Because Rainey came from a poor family, he was a black, mentally disabled Muslim prisoner, in prison for minor possession of drugs.  It shouldn’t matter what or who Rainey was.  What should matter is Rainey’s life had value.  What should matter is those who tortured and killed Rainey violated state and federal law.  Will you please join us in our quest for justice for the murder of Darren Rainey?  Will you please join us in our fight for the value of life?  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.

IT WAS NORMAL FOR THE INMATE-PATIENTS HOUSED IN DADE C.I. TCU WING J3 TO HEAR INMATE-PATIENTS BEING TORTURED IN THE SHOWER THAT KILLED DARREN RAINEY

In January 2012 Dade C.I. staff started using a shower in Wing J3 of the Dade Correctional Institution Transitional Care Unit (TCU) that reached temperatures of more than 160 degrees Fahrenheit to torture mentally disabled inmates.  Inmates who refused to do what staff said were placed in the shower and the water was turned on full hot with no cold.  Inmate-patients placed in the shower for punishment would stand as close as they can to the shower door to avoid the hot water.  What made the shower punishment wasn’t the hot water that they could avoid but the heat and steam from the shower they couldn’t avoid.

From January 2012 till June 23rd, 2012 several mentally disabled inmates were placed in the shower as punishment, each of them were placed in the shower one or more times.  All the inmate-patients to some degree or another yelled, kicked the door, or made noises wanting to get out of the shower.  The foregoing always happened on the 4:00pm till 11:00pm shift.

For the inmate-patients housed in Wing J3 of the TCU, the above happened so much it was considered normal.  

I explained this numerous times to the MDPD and Federal Government.  The Dade County State Attorney knew this.  The reason why I’m explaining the following is because the Dade County Florida State Attorney contended in her 3/17/17 memorandum that the fact that the inmates only went to their cell windows a few times in Wing J3 on the night Rainey was killed, in essence showed nothing unusual was happening in the wing that night.  She makes this assertion but fails to state in her memorandum that the reason why nothing unusual was happening in Wing J3 the night Rainey was killed was because it was normal for us inmates housed in J3 to hear inmate-patients in the shower for punishment, trying to get out of the shower.

Also, the Dade County State Attorney hopes that everybody doesn’t use common sense in realizing how it’s a common instinct for people who don’t want to get hurt to not make themselves seen when they’re in an area where somebody is getting hurt.  If you’re in the area of where a person is severely hurting and killing a person and you could avoid being seen by the suspect, would you hide?  Most people would.  Does the Dade County State Attorney expect the witnesses to the Darren Rainey murder to have stood at their windows all night long and in essence tell the staff torturing Rainey “Hey, I’m watching you torture Darren Rainey?”

Anyone using reasoning when reading the Dade County Florida State Attorney’s 3/17/17 memorandum stating they aren’t going to prosecute Rainey’s killers will see that the State Attorney used unreasonable, trivial and frivolous reasons to attempt to attack the circumstances of what happened on the night Rainey was killed and etc..

If you have any information to show corruption with the Miami-Dade Police Department and/or Dade County Florida State Attorney’s Office, will you please share that information with us?
