HUMAN RIGHTS FOR PRISONERS MARCH, hosted by Mary Neal, email MaryLovesJustice@gmail.com
Call-in number (347) 857-3293. December 21, 2014 Guest: Windy Hempstead

The world was shocked to read about the wrongful death of Darren Rainey in Dade Correctional Institution in Florida. Rainey died two years ago when correctional officers dragged him into a shower and scaled him to death. Our guest, Windy Hemstead, received an urgent phone call about the murder from her brother, Harold, a prison orderly. She reported Rainey's murder to law enforcement. Two years later, Windy reported Rainey's death to the Miami Herald, because no corrective action was taken by the justice system, and she feared for her brother as a whistle blower.

The Miami Herald published a series of articles about Rainey's death and other abuses to mentally ill inmates in Florida, including "Behind Bars, a Brutal and Unexplained Death" http://www.miamiherald.com/news/local/community/miami-dade/article1964620.htmlhttp://www.miamiherald.com/news/local/community/miami-dade/article1964620.html

George C. Mallinckrodt, who ws a mental health worker at the prison, published a book: "Getting Away with Murder"

To date, Rainey's death has not be pronounced a homicide, according to Windy Hempstead. Justice is delayed.
