The Special Litigation Section works to protect the rights of people who are in prisons and jails run by state or local governments. If we find that a state or local government systematically deprives people in these facilities of their rights, we can act.
In my complaint, I detailed the horrific, sadistic way Rainey suffered and the prevailing environment in the Transitional Care Unit that led to abuse, beatings, torture, and murder. So in my own small way, I am trying to make a difference. I'll reach out soon to the detective in Miami Metro Homicide to hopefully give him some leads to pursue. Twenty-one months after Rainey's death and it appears the investigation has stalled. What happens now is anybody's guess. For details regarding Rainey's death, please read Chapter 1 on my website under Books.
