Above the Law, victims of narcissists

A case that started with a simple nuisance drainage issue, it ended up with the neighbor using chemicals with intent to cause me serious injury. He and the local officials had no regard to the building codes or requirements pertaining to legally nonconforming property redevelopment. There was not one thing regarding this redevelopment that was compliant with the State building code or State drainage laws. When he realized he could not get his new redevelopment recorded on the county plat map that he decided the remedy was to eliminate me and acquire my property. This will give you an idea of the offenses that have been committed against me. These are clear violations of Federal Law. Equal protection, private property right, the 14th amendment to name a few.

 
Are you diagnosed with any injury or condition as a result of this behavior or otherwise?
 

Yes, the skin condition that resulted in the chemical exposure is chronic, the only way I can keep it reasonably under control is by taking the medication methotrexate. Methotrexate in itself is known to cause damage to internal organs. I have to have blood drawn and tested on a regular basis to monitor the amounts in my system are considered as “safe”. My body specifically my arms are covered in scars. I must avoid the sun due to the methotrexate Initially I was required to travel to the University of Iowa hospital weekly, slowly it has now become every six months, I have an appointment tomorrow in fact. This Dr. literally saved my life. There is no other case that a person has been intentionally exposed to glyphosate ongoing for five + years. I question whether that is the only chemical that was unlawfully applied to my property along the common boundary. The attacker began unlawfully applying chemicals to my property the year prior to when he applied it on the city easement along lot #1 of my property. He is well connected with the local agricultural supply corp. It was only when he applied it to the city easement when a neighbor two properties down from me reported chemicals to the EPA. Where he applied it happened to be the point source of a large portion of the city’s drainage ditches. When he applied it and it rained it naturally ran downstream into a backwater slough that feeds directly into the Mississippi River. A neighbor notified the EPA when all living plant life on her property was killed by the chemicals. This man by this time had suspiciously been elected to the city council. He was misrepresenting his authority to be that of an employee of the street dept, which he had no authority nor did the city’s insurance cover him in acting as an employee of the city. I continue to suffer emotional distress, I was distraught that I had no protection of the law to file a trespassing complaint against this man. This man sued me because I (within my rights) put up a privacy curtain his case was dismissed. The judge’s order cited my “right to enjoy my property”. I felt a sense of relief believing this meant that he would not apply chemicals to my property again. I was soon after charged by the State on this man’s behalf for a misdemeanor act. The citation stated “Mark Conlee said Melody Boatner drove by his house and gave him the middle finger”. A few days later I received another citation, this one stated “Mark Conlee said Melody Boatner drove by his house and gave him the middle finger, he is tired of this continuing to happen.” The additional wording bumped the charge up to harassment. The County Attorney sent Lee County Deputy David Hunold to my house, according to Hunold, the County Attorney was concerned there may be a conflict of interest. We sat for over an hour, I showed him documented evidence that Conlee lied in court, knowingly make false statements, made false police reports and his admission in court documents that he did apply chemicals to my property. He got up to leave and I said “wait a minute, I want to file trespassing complaint against Conlee”. Deputy Hunold advised me that he was only there to investigate the complaint regarding me giving him the finger. There is no law against giving someone the finger, I admitted I did one time. That is the only interaction I ever had with this man aside from telling him years earlier not to apply anything to my property, not to enter my property. I have the date and photo evidence. Conlee violated the court order in the civil case he filed against me. He approached me, accompanied by the Chief of Police, he advised me that he was going to move the railroad ties that I had placed down the common boundary to divert the significantly increased stormwater runoff from his illegal property redevelopment. I ask the Police Chief, what are you doing here? He advised me that he was acting as a witness that Conlee told me in advance that he was going to move the railroad ties. This is the same police chief that the day I told Conlee not to apply anything to my property, because I felt whatever he had been unlawfully applying was causing me medical problems. I followed up directly with the Police chief requesting an incident report. I finally received an incident report sixteen months later. By that time my body was eaten up. I was unable to function at all, to simply wear clothes was unbearable. I continue to have eruptions to my skin but is controllable with ointment provided by prescription from my dermatologist in Iowa City. I have had many incidents caused by bad interactions with medications that have been given in an attempt to offer some relief to the severe skin condition. I was overdosed on IV steroids by the Dr on duty at the Ft Madison Community Hosp. resulting in hallucinations resulting in being hospitalized in ICU for three days. There are many instances similar to what I have just explained, I have everything documented.

The problem for me to date has been the existing conflict of interest between these local officials. Anyone with the authority to protect my rights and prosecute criminal offenses have clearly conspired to cover up, violate Federal law pertaining to private property, equal protection and several of the Constitutional Amendments.  The evidence is much clearer than my ability to tell this story. Photos and court documents do not lie.  This is not supposed to happen in the USA. This is illegal, ignorance of the law is no excuse. This has never happened to another citizen.  

My father was employed as the Street Commissioner of a neighboring town. I was aware of the violations that were being committed against me as they were happening. I reported these crimes to the proper authority as they occurred. I had a successful business that I operated from this property. A home the biggest investment a person make in their lifetime. Mine was taken because my neighbor having all the right people holding the needed government position was allowed to violated all laws concerning redevelopment of legally nonconforming property. Everyone except the County Recorder, he couldn’t get past having to have this illegal redevelopment recorded on the county plat map.

Continued involvement in covering up evidence of a conspiracy

Within the past few weeks the people of Lee County, Ia have gotten a new Sheriff and a new County Attorney. I thought I would contact both of them and see if they were interested in pursuing criminal actions against the former local officials who have without a doubt committed crimes against me.

First I telephoned the new County Attorney, he advised me that he would take action against criminals, he did require a complaint be given to him by the sheriff though. I am curious why former Lee County, Ia Attorney Michael Short never requested this.  Short told me straight up he would decide who gets prosecuted in Lee County. He did decide, he refused to file a complaint against criminals with evidence that was unquestionable. He did file complaints against innocent people being charged with fabricated laws. He was unsuccessful at getting convictions for these imaginary violations of fabricated laws.

Anyway, my thoughts that the new sheriff would ever implicate the former Law Enforcement officer that he stated in his first press release after being elected were pretty clear to me not going to happen. I talked to him and he told me he would help me receive justice. But I just never considered that he would be true to his word. The fact that in the press release he praises the former Lee County Detective that was so heavily involved in the illegal actions against me as being the major factor as to why he chose law enforcement as a career is telling in itself. The thin blue line does not get crossed, even though they claim they will unhold the law. Not reasonable in my mind. The fact that he made this former detective’s son his right hand man, also makes me question his loyalty. Is he willing to put his mentor on the chopping block as his duty to protect and serve the people. I doubt that.

The discussions we did have were in reference to him giving me the name of a Federal agent. That I admit he did stay true to his word and do. He also advised me that he informed the city of Montrose clerk that there was an investigation into public corruption. I asked “what did she say?”. He told me she said she didn’t know what he was talking about.

Within days the City of Montrose website was taken down, the clerk was the administrator. She had been vigilant at keeping the public record of the city council meeting minutes up to date, beginning in Jan. 2005. I had noticed that three different months had been removed, those minutes being the ones that contained the record of the Mayor and council implicating themselves by statements they made at the meetings. I had the copies of those meeting minutes any how.

I believe the fact that the city clerk took down the website only after being advised there was an investigation is just the latest action that supports the evidence that a conspiracy against my rights has occurred, I think this extends statute of limitations is the only  positive result from this action in her attempt to cover up the evidence, no worries though I have every month of city council meeting minutes downloaded and saved. So I may owe the new Sheriff a thank you for his assistance.

I do not feel comfortable meeting with the new sheriff. I have little trust in the local authorities when it comes to upholding the law. I have also heard rumor that the new right hand man is a little aggressive and I do not want any interaction with him. He is going to defend his family to the best of his power. That is an honorable character trait, if it weren’t for the fact that his family members committed unprecedented criminal offenses.

Conspiracy, taking of property without just compensation to say the least.

The facts of this case in a brief summary is that a neighbor purchased the legally nonconforming lot adjoining mine. He began redeveloping it the following year by trucking in enough fill dirt to elevate the lot up to 10′ higher, constructed a two story nonconforming garage with roof surface altered to allow stormwater runoff to be diverted directly onto my property. He regraded the fill dirt from the alley down to my property, resulting in diverting all stormwater runoff from his new redevelopment. The building permit issued for this structure is illegal. He also did not install drain tile around the slab or along the common boundary to carry stormwater to the city drainage ditch. I was advised he intended to build a living quarter in the upper level of this garage when I mentioned my concern about adverse affects to my property.

The following year after a suspicious fire destroyed the existing double wide mobile home, he changed the plan. He was issued an illegal building permit for a new home. He again built a nonconforming structure, altered the roof surface and trucked in fill dirt all of which were made to intentionally divert stormwater from the entire lot onto my property. He illegally removed and existing berm, conflicting with a statement made under oath. He changed the frontage of the new home to be the alley. This to conflicts with a statement he made under oath. He and the city raised the alley to act as if it were his private city street, higher that the private property abutting it. The raising of the alley is in conflict with the standard procedure of an alley to be lower that the property adjoining it to take stormwater from a backyard and carry it to the city drainage ditch. There are many inconsistencies and conflicting statements implicating himself in perjury in the civil case he filed against me for loss of enjoyment of his property. The case was dismissed. At no time did the building official address my concerns, he did continue to issue illegal building permits to this neighbor however.

He then used his connections to be elected to city council. Specifically the city clerk. In that position he attempted to cause me financial harm, however all cases against me were dismissed, only costing the taxpayers of the city money. One case was for the same complaint the same as the civil case he filed against me, it was dismissed with a note at the bottom from the judge questioning the purpose of the case against me by the city. He held his position as city council member for the intent of continuing to harass me. He made false police reports against me. He initiated nuisance weed ordinances with the intent to cause me physical harm. He began applying toxic chemicals to my property in early 2005. I followed all standard procedures provided for me to remedy the nuisance drainage issue his property redevelopment causing adverse effects and loss of value to my property. The city building official refused to follow standard procedure to remedy the situation. The chemicals had severe effects to my physical health. I suffered severe pain as a result of not being able to get equal protection of the law in my requests for them to issue a trespassing complaint on my behalf. I had no protection of the law and the city level or the county level, in fact certain law enforcement officers misrepresented their authority and jurisdiction to act on this neighbors behalf. Ethical violation of not recognizing a conflict of interest existed at every local level, those special relationships were used for the benefit on this neighbor. He violated the civil court ruling by physically altering the railroad ties I had placed on my property to divert stormwater toward the city drainage ditch, he was assisted by Chief of Police Brent Shipman.

The chemicals unlawfully applied to my property continued for the following five years. My right to enjoy my own property as cited in the civil court ruling was violated due to the illegal application of the chemicals. These chemicals caused my condition to deteriorate to the degree that I believe they were going to be the cause of my death. He would not stop. No law enforcement officer intended to make him stop the criminal act. The Lee County Attorney advised me that “he would decide who gets prosecuted in Lee County.” He proceeded to file criminal complaints against me on my neighbors behalf. All were dismissed due to the fabrication of a law itself.

This neighbor had all the right people in all the right positions that he was aided and abetted causing me serious injury. When he discovered he could not get his illegal property redevelopment recorded on the county plat map is when he began using the chemicals as a weapon against me. He motive was to acquire my property. He could never get his illegal property redevelopment recorded on the county plat map without the addition of my property to his lot. I was forced to flee to escape the chemicals that were killing me. I fled from my home, business, property and the chemicals cost me my health. There are no words to express being violated of my right to this degree. I did survive only due to one Dr. from the University of Iowa hospital. However the medication I must take to control the severe skin condition will more likely than not cause damage to my internal organs. The damages include pain and suffering, along with the severe skin condition I lost my eyesight for over 7 years. I was unable to read, recognize people and had no business driving. My successful upholstery service that I operated out of my shop on my property and future income from that business. All lost income that will affect the amount of SS I received had I been allowed to stay at my property till retirement as I had planned for myself. This is unprecedented in that there is no other case according to the EPA field investigator in which a neighbor has been allowed to used chemicals on a neighbor’s property.  There are laws in place to prevent this type of thing from happening.

Went to City Hall to get copies of building permits issued for Mark Conlee’s property redevelopment. – Poisoned By My Neighbor From Hell in Montrose, Lee County, Iowa

After being told by Mayor Dinwiddie that this was a private issue I went to City Hall. I got copies of the building permits on file for Mark Conlees new garage and his new home. This one for his new home.

In the circled area Value is handwritten $40,880 Fee $ is blank. The issue date at the top is 7-12-2004. Complainant had only noticed that this permit was invalid due to no Builders signature. Clearly Building Administrator Holland was intentionally negligent at least for his lack of oversight and pre-approval of issuance of this permit

3-24-2007 Epa warning City of Montrose illegal applied chemical

warning to City of Montrose unlawful application of toxic chemicals

3-24-2007 EPA warning City of Montrose illegal applied chemicals that directly feed into the Mississippi River.
This is the warning the EPA sent to the City. It states the process that the City failed to do in order to lawfully spray chemicals. If these chemicals were not harmful to humans, why would these laws be needed? The City is required to have a certified applicator, which they did not. This was done soon after Mark Conlee (suspiciously) took his elected seat as a council member. There has never been any chemicals sprayed on my property by anyone until Mark Conlee took the unlawful liberty to trespass on my property with toxic chemicals. After the City received this warning Mark Conlee continued to apply chemicals to my property as part of his yard maintenance routine, he went back to his original plan of only applying it to my property along our common boundary line. An investigation would expose that it was not the Street Dept, director Craig Junkins who actually applied the chemicals in the point source of the drainage ditch that flows to the backwater slough and into the Mississippi River. The chemicals were to precisely applied. Clearly only where the City easement is on my property, not any on Mr. Conlee’s easement. Mr Junkins would not have been so meticulous, he would have applied it the entire length of the Cities easement. Mr Conlee was obsessed with finding me guilty of violating a City ordinance. This act was another attempt to cite me for nuisance weeds. He personally came home from work during his lunch hour, (he never comes home for lunch) he personally drove directly to the area in the City’s drainage ditch and took photographs of the weeds on my side of the gully as well as the weeds on the Cities side of the gully. The photos only proved to be evidence that illegal chemicals had been directly applied to the headwaters of Jack Creek, these chemicals killed all living plants on my property but washed downstream through the City culvert and across the properties of the 2 downstream neighbors. It killed all living plants and probably animals on their properties also. It was the neighbor whose property was the farthest downstream who called and reported the incident to the EPA. The letter is addressed to Mr. Junkins only because he was the head of the street dept. at this time. Mr. Conlee being a City council member has no authority to do anything on behalf of the City except attend council meetings and vote. The Cities insurance does not cover him to be acting as an employee of the street dept. By this time due to the prior year of Mr Conlee illegally applying toxic chemicals to my property I had developed a skin condition so severe that it was unbearable to wear cloths, I was wearing my bathrobe when the field investigator came to the location and took soil samples and a written statement from the 2 other neighbors whose property was effected and myself. · Updated 4 minutes ago
