MIAMI — Prison guards in Florida are off the hook this weekend five years after they reportedly boiled a man alive during his stint for cocaine possession. Guards at the time allegedly boiled Darren Rainey at temperatures in the prison shower up to 180 degrees — well beyond the limit set by the prison for showers to be at to begin with.
Although, despite their heinous activities towards the schizophrenic man a Dade County prosecutors office has found that there is no evidence to support such a cause and declared that no charges will be filed against the guards. Interestingly, prison captains at the time had measured the temperature of the shower at 160 degrees following Rainey’s death.
It may be important to note that prison officials and Dade-County officials refuse to release the actual autopsy report for Rainey.
