George Mallinckrodt is a psychotherapist who formerly worked in Florida prisons counseling mentally ill inmates. He observed an alarming pattern of abuse by corrections officers and complained. He lost his job. Months later, he learned about the death by scalding of Darren Rainey, a 50-year-old black mentally ill inmate who guards scalded to death in a small shower. Rainey was tortured under a strong spray of 180°F water (water boils at 212°F). Rainey's skin had to be scraped from the shower after his body was removed. No charges were filed after Rainey's homicide, and no autopsy report was released to date. Disgusted by the lack of accountability. Mallinckrodt then published a book about abused mentally ill inmates, murderous corrections officers, and the Florida Department of Corrections called "Getting Away with Murder."

"The Florida Department of Corrections is riddled with amoral, sadistic sociopaths and the people who support, enable, and cover-up their crimes." ~ @GeoMallinckrodt (at Twitter)

"If what is done to mentally ill Florida inmates was done in the military, these would be considered war crimes." ~George Mallinckrodt?
