Darren Rainey's death in prison shower 'accidental'

This is so infuriating. At the same time I got this in my newsfeed, there was another article about a CO that is facing 10 years for allowing an inmate to use his cell phone to call a sick family member. Apparently it is okay to torture or kill an inmate, but if a CO shows a little compassion they throw the book at them.

This really is horrible.

But, this is what happens when the mentally disabled are sent to be watched by other humans that have been trained to guard prisoners.

A scalding shower is obviously permissible treatment of Florida prisoners.

Let that sink in for a minute.

In June 2012, four guards trapped 50-year-old Darren Rainey, a schizophrenic, in a shower at Florida's Dade Correctional Institute for two hours.
He was found dead lying face up in the shower, his skin red and slipping off.
I am physically sick.

But, we continue to let this happen. Until enough get enough, it's only going to continue.

It's an elected position. She ran without opposition in 2016. If I were in Florida I'd be marking my calendar.

There's fresh news. Someone on the inside showed a Huffington Post reporter some of the investigation materials that the prosecutor left out of her report.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/...ushpmg00000009

Quote:
Numerous official photos taken of Rainey’s body several hours after he died were also reviewed by HuffPost. The images reveal extreme damage to his skin, with wounds over his entire body and significant sections of skin missing, exposing red and white tissue and, in some areas, what appear to be blood vessels
I cannot imagine what this is like for his family and if I could imagine it it would probably wreck my mind.

Thanks for sharing. This is horrific that a so well planned torture room could exist today.

I continue to hear Mother's say, 'prison saved my son's life' and I just cringe.

I read that case several years ago....it was horrific then, and still is. I don't see how anyone could consider it accidental.

I read about this years ago. Only the article I read had details in it that I wish I could unread.

Back in the day, the press was supposed to be the people's protector, expose abuses of power and help us to stop it.

SHAME on Huffington Post for merely "reviewing" incriminating reports and photos.
REALLY? I'm pretty sure even I could have managed to take some proof out of there . . .



How does this happen in 21st century AMERICA?

The government is keeping the photos secret and fighting an independent investigation.
