Darren Rainey

State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle refused to charge the correctional officers that killed Darren Rainey by locking him in a shower with 180-degree water.

In 2012, Darren Rainey was killed by correctional officers while serving a two-year sentence at Dade Correctional for cocaine possession. Four guards locked Rainey in a shower with 180-degree water for nearly two hours. 

Rainey had burns on 30% of his body, but State Attorney Rundle claimed he died from heart conditions and schizophrenia. The Miami Herald reported that State Attorney Rundle “refused to allow a private forensic pathologist to review the skin tissue sample that would show more clearly whether Rainey was burned.”

The Miami-Dade Executive Committee passed a resolution asking Rundle to suspend her reelection campaign due to her “historical record of failing to persecute law enforcement for on-duty killings.”

Melba would have charged the officers that killed Darren Rainey. Miami deserves a State Attorney that stands up to abusive law enforcement officers.
