Mentally ill prisoner, Darren Rainey, who was scalded to death in a hot shower by officers working inside of Dade Correctional Institution as punishment for defecating in his cell, and refusing to clean it when staff commanded him to
(Julie K. Brown) 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.

Stephen K.: What is happening in these photos, I have no idea.
Rayn: No? These images represent just a few of the many photos available to the public, showing American soldiers “just doing their job” by abusing and torturing detainees at Abu Ghraib prison, and happily posing with the dead body of one of their murder victims, Manadel al-Jamadi. This is a part of the U.S. government’s “War on Terror,” and it is, of course, a tax-payer funded operation. Ironically, we are supposed to believe that this sort of State-sponsored terrorism not only protects us from “the terrorists,” but that the tax-dollars pilfered from us all to fund these crimes against humanity (and other such horrors that almost no American has ever consented to), actually represent “our fair share,” as well as “the price we pay for a *civilized* society.” In other words, I’m supposed to accept these sorts of barbaric, criminal “services” because my tax dollars also go towards Muh Roads, muh schools, muh “law and order,” Muh Borders, and muh “aid for the poor.”
