I am seeing a conflict of Interest with the Inspector General reporting to the Secretary of Corrections.

In Australia, and other key Commonwealth countries, such as UK, Canada and New Zealand, investigators are entirely independent. In NSW the investigators even report to a different government minister. Therefore there is no possibility of an inspector being improperly put under pressure not to report wrongdoing.

The inmate Harold Hempstead whom started all this whistle blower stuff with the guy in the shower is a sociopath compulsive liar.I went to highschool with him and he was a wanna gangsta then and a wanna be police informant.The media says he has no violent history which is wrong,in high school several kids attempted to get him out of his house to fight and he opened fire on them with a stolen ak-47 assault rifle.He was a juvi then but I believe he was tried as an adult.Once he got out of that trouble he got into more trouble for breaking in houses all the while being a paid informant.He eventually was caught up in a bunch of burglaries while being a paid snitch.he went to trial and lost and was sentenced to like 165 years.I have done prison time and seen things .Yes DOC has killed many inmates and I mean hundreds,yes they beat inmates,starve inmates,allow inmates to rape other inmates and cover up everything,but Harold Hempsted had balls coming out with this but the guy is a nut and he is using it as a tool to get transferred to the federal system which is much better then the state of florida prison system.
