The Florida Department of Corrections’ Ghosting-to-Tennessee farewell party for inmate whistleblower Harold Hempstead was violent, per a communication from Harold that oddly reached the United Kingdom before it reach me here in Florida.
There’s sound reason to believe that a welcome home party for the Caged Crusader would be even more violent, as Harold has obviously availed himself of the opportunity to piss off yet more public servants by telling the truth about his farewell party.
Rather bizarrely, the increased violence of an FDC welcome home party may be the better option … prison conditions in Tennessee are so godawful that corrections officers are committing suicide. I pay attention: I know that Arizona, Texas, Michigan and many other states aren’t safe to be Ghosted to, either.
So what’s our whistleblower supposed to do, request a return trip to Florida and hope not to die in transit or immediately upon arrival? What’s our whistleblower’s family to do … how will they deal with the drama of interacting with two dysfunctional corrections departments instead of one, and the increased expenses and emotional turmoil that distance causes?
With a federal government that prides itself on law and order despite law and order only being available in fiction, what the hell is anyone who’s trying to help to do?
All I can think of to do is keep repeating that #FailureToKeepFromHarm is a federal crime that the FBI and Department of Justice are obliged to investigate and prosecute, and that the president and Congress are supposed to ensure they do their jobs.

More testimony of violent assault, serious retaliation and attempted repression of free speech of the Rainey murder witness Harold Hempstead, by Florida Department of Corrections staff.
A few weeks before the night when he was awoken in the small hours, knocked around and transported to Tennessee – on the very same day the Rundle report was released – Harold Hempstead, the key-witness in the torture/murder of Darren Rainey, wrote a sworn affidavit about some of the retaliation he’s received from the Florida Department of Corrections.
Here’s a brief account from Harold on the manner of his departure from Florida:
“When I was being escorted from my cell to…
