Mentally ill man scalded to death in Miami Dade Jail in 2012. No one held accountable as of 2014.

[IMG][/IMG]

The purported details of Darren Rainey’s last hour are difficult to read.

“I can’t take it no more, I’m sorry. I won’t do it again,’’ he screamed over and over, according to a grievance complaint from a fellow inmate, as Rainey was allegedly locked in a shower with the scalding water turned on full blast.

A 50-year-old mentally ill inmate at the Dade Correctional Institution, Rainey was pulled into the locked shower by prison guards as punishment after defecating in his cell and refusing to clean it up, said the fellow inmate, who worked as an orderly. He was left there unattended for more than an hour as the narrow chamber filled with steam and water.

When guards finally checked on prisoner 060954, he was on his back and dead. His skin was so burned that it had shriveled from his body, a condition referred to as slippage, according to a medical document involving the death.

But nearly two years after Rainey’s death on June 23, 2012, the Miami-Dade medical examiner has yet to complete an autopsy and Miami-Dade police have not charged anyone. The Florida Department of Corrections halted its probe into the matter, saying it could be restarted if the autopsy and police investigation unearth new information.

1. That is medieval, I guess we are living in the Dark Ages.

 

How totally horrific. The pain he must have gone through probably is comparable to being on fire. Of COURSE I don't expect anyone to be held accountable.

practice cruel and unusual punishment. And it's not only in the USA either.

8. We have the extra-judicial killings where the cop is judge,

jury and executioner. The good news is that people have had enough and they're beginning to be arrested for murder.
I won't even discuss the prison conditions,

9. People with mental health issues should not be warehoused in prison, and the US

prison system is barbaric from top to bottom.

10. Very true

People with mental health issues need medical care.
Many of the judicial branches of government across the globe have failed humanity big time.

11. Yes, because they are fucking dumb and or corrupt..prison is privatized now...money, money.

The answers to confronting crime are not that elusive:

The Norwegian prison where inmates are treated like people

On Bastoy prison island in Norway, the prisoners, some of whom are murderers and rapists, live in conditions that critics brand 'cushy' and 'luxurious'. Yet it has by far the lowest reoffending rate in Europe

17. Yea, we need to evolve and it would help if we end all the St Reagan privatize garbage too.

One day, people as you say, are sick of where we are as a society...too much pain and no growth.

4. I am so fucking disgusted with the gangs in blue in

this country !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The people who did this are heartless, soulless, murdering, criminals.

It has gotten to the point that the prisoners are the good guys and the "police officers", "prison guards", and the "judges" are the true criminals.

Our prisons and jails are places of TORTURE and MURDER !!!!

The police departments are filled with evil vengeful psychopaths.

No one deserves to die like this.

No one !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

12. Death for cocaine possession apparently is the new vogue for mentally ill prisoners?

I know my father hated being in jail. But I'm glad he never had anything like this happen to him.

14. The people who become prison guards

 

do so because they're either unqualified, unfit, failed to pass the entrance exam (or, failed the academy), to become police officers.

That should tell you something.

22. This seems like a on easy case of manslaughter


And maybe murder depending on what other facts are provable.
