In Miami-Dade, Florida, prosecutors have announced they will not bring criminal charges against four prison guards over the death of 50-year-old Darren Rainey, a schizophrenic prisoner who died after the guards locked him in a shower stall and exposed him to 180-degree scalding water. When his body was found two hours later, he had burns covering 90 percent of his body. Click here to see our full interview on Darren Rainey’s death.
