Florida Dept. of Corrections Under Fire; Murder, Mayhem & Cover Ups

Recently, Florida Department of Corrections has fired 35 correctional officers for various CRIMES ranging from breaking the law, a gassing death, cover ups, and more. All were on administrative leave pending a review that was launched in summer. NONE have been arrested or charged with any crimes. Whats the hold up? Why have there not been any arrests or charges?? If it were you or I, we would be behind bars with no bond….corruption runs deep in Florida, always has. Its time to clean house and if it means getting rid of Crews ( the DOC secretary) then so be it.

A state senator is asking the Department of Corrections to turn over documents regarding the cover-up and investigation of suspicious inmate deaths at Florida prisons, warning that the use excessive force may have violated the constitutional ban on “cruel and unusual punishment.”

Sen. Darren Soto, D-Orlando, sent the letter to DOC Secretary Michael Crews in response to a Miami Herald report that chief investigators for both Gov. Rick Scott and the agency were told of the suspicious inmate deaths by an anonymous letter writer more than a year before news reports about the deaths prompted the agency to crackdown on abusive guards.

“If they did receive information and nobody did anything about it, we may have to replace some of the auditors,” said Soto, a member of the Senate Criminal and Civil Justice Appropriations Committee which oversees prisons. “I’m worried about the potential liability to the state and the potential of a federal takeover if we are violating the constitution.”

    As many who advocate for inmates know, Gretl Plessinger – the current spokesperson for the Florida Department of Law Enforcement – is the former spokesperson for the Florida Department of Corrections. Her testimony about the FL DoC ignoring complaints of abuse, violence and the taking of lives would be required if the FDLE was legitimately investigating the FL DoC.
