This guy takes the cake. Like if its not on this website it there must not be evidence, pretty assumptive of the AUSA for the Southern District of Iowa. Chemical warfare has nearly cost me my life and he thinks its a good idea to put all my evidence out here for the public to view, even the deranged people who used chemical warfare to eliminate me from my property. What is it that he is calling assumptive? All the evidence I have posted is hard copy original documents. If he cannot prove beyond a reasonable doubt that chemical weapons were used to eliminate me from my private property when even a civil court order or no law enforcement would stop him from applying chemicals to MY property, he should really find a new job. This case is cut and dry. Any reasonable person who would read the evidence I have posted has no doubt this was an intentional act. This evidence is based on facts, SA Reinwart wanted to used hearsay evidence, when the hard copy evidence is right in front of him. He wasted tax payer money to travel clear to the tip of Iowa to refuse to review hard copy evidence and ask for hearsay. When a person knows he is causing another person physical harm and doesn’t stop what he is doing to cause it, its pretty obvious why he is doing it. There is nothing that I have posted that does not have hard copy evidence to support. Reinwart did not follow procedure for investigation and you have not followed procedure for prosecuting criminals. VanderSchel you are assuming that reasonable people do not know it is illegal to do anything to another person property, not to mention unheard of act of chemical warfare as stated by the EPA field investigator. That is a F(&99+ fact. And I have to mention that you advised me that you would not be the person prosecuting this case anyway so why do you think you have any input about this case at all? You are assuming you have some kind of authority over a case that you are not the prosecutor of. That show a defect in your personality any reasonable person can determine that to be a fact also. An attorney of minimum experience could win this case. The evidence is solid as a rock. Not the hearsay, the hard copy evidence. Hearsay does not stand up in court, don’t you know that?
Well this may be against my best interest but at this point what do I have to lose. I am publishing the email of the FBI SA who refused to review my hard copy evidence. Did not look into the financial record of the accused to see if perhaps a bribe has been paid. He accepted hearsay to be evidence. My case did not even get issued a case number. He did not recognize that private property rights are Federally protected rights. He continued to claim that no Federal law has been broken when anyone who has taken the time to review the evidence agrees with me that Federal laws have been violated on more than one occasion. firstname.lastname@example.org. He goes by the first name of Thomas.
The AUSA immediately advised me that he would not prosecute giving me three different reasons at three different times. The first three reasons I submitted evidence that he was incorrect as to what the evidence proved he was basing his decision on. Knowing he has been given false information or information based on hearsay by the above named FBI agent. The most recent decision not to prosecute was because he has the authority. I sent him guidelines suggested by the Attorney General but to no avail. The letter states that I am not supposed to contact this AUSA again. They will not put any more resources into my insignificant case. I explained that a civil court order early on in my favor was violated by the local government officials and he callously does not care. Kevin.VanderSchel@doj.gov. he of course goes by the name of Kevin.
There is no record of any citizen being forced to flee from their private property due to unlawful application of toxic chemicals being applied, ongoing for over 5 years. NONE. It seems to me that anyone who would continue an act that he knows is causing anyone else physical harm has some mental health issues. I know I would not do anything to anyone else’s property because it is illegal and immoral. It seems the Federal authorities feel that they can join in this figurative gang rape. I feel they need to be held accountable as well as the locals. There is nothing I have posted that is based on hearsay or based on fabricated information. There is much evidence that I have not posted. If these individuals are satisfied that they have upheld their duty and the oath they took to uphold the Constitution of the United States then they should be proud of their job performance in my unnumbered case. They never showed any real intent to defend my rights given by Federal law. They should be proud of their actions in this case that has multiple violations of Federal law. Anyone who reads my information and feels my Federally protected rights have been violated I urge you to email these individuals and let them know that private property rights are Federally protected rights and any other opinions you may have that Federal law has in fact been violated. Terrorism is not a violation of Federal law I have been told. Only supporters of terrorism are violating Federal law, so clearly the local officials who would not stop this neighbor from applying the chemicals to my property are supporters of terrorism. Yes herbicides and pesticides are considered chemical weapons. I have done all the research to know that violations of Federal law have occured.
If something happens to me it is well documented as to who may be involved. Just saying. Glyphosate is harmful to human beings when not applied as directed on the label. This is what is wrong with our Government today. Covering up and supporting corruption is not what the FBI has the duty to do. I want to know why I am exempt from the same rights that every other citizen takes for granted, as I did when I fled from my home, business and property. There is no justifiable reason any US citizen should have to suffer what I have suffered.

You have never looked into the financial records of Conlee and the County Attorney or my attorney or any of the rest of this criminal enterprise, have you? I told you that Mark Conlee’s personality disorder would not allow for him not to keep a record of who he payed off. It the linked case is Federal then why would my case be exempt? My case also falls into the guidelines of violation of international human rights crimes I have been told.So I would think there would be many allegations like mine. If there is no Federal law to hold City and Countys accountable for using chemicals to force you from your property and they happen to have a conflict of interest with the local officials, but the local officials instead of recognizing the conflict, they use the situation for personal gain. Hey, I read about conflict of interest on the FBI website. Why is my case not within the guidelines for Federal conspiracy against rights and deprivation of rights under color of law? By rights I mean my rights given by Amendments 4, 7,8, 14
The FBI is the primary federal agencyresponsible for investigating allegations regarding violations of federal civil rights statutes. These laws are designed to protect the civil rights of all persons—citizens and non-citizens alike—within U.S. territory. Using its full suite of investigative and intelligence capabilities, the Bureau today works closely with its partners to prevent and address hate crime, human trafficking, color of law violations, and Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances (FACE) Act violations
Color of Law Violations Preventing abuse of this authority, however, is equally necessary to the health of our nation’s democracy. That’s why it’s a federal crime for anyone acting under “color of law” to willfully deprive or conspire to deprive a person of a right protected by the Constitution or U.S. law. “Color of law” simply means the person is using authority given to him or her by a local, state, or federal government agency.
The FBI is the lead federal agency for investigating color of law violations, which include acts carried out by government officials operating both within and beyond the limits of their lawful authority. Off-duty conduct may be covered if the perpetrator asserted his or her official status in some way. Those violations include the following acts:
Excessive force: In making arrests, maintaining order, and defending life, law enforcement officers are allowed to use whatever force is “reasonably” necessary. The breadth and scope of the use of force is vast—from just the physical presence of the officer…to the use of deadly force. Violations of federal law occur when it can be shown that the force used was willfully “unreasonable” or “excessive.” chemical weapons would fall under this catagory
False arrest and fabrication of evidence: The Fourth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution guarantees the right against unreasonable searches or seizures. A law enforcement official using authority provided under the color of law is allowed to stop individuals and, under certain circumstances, to search them and retain their property. It is in the abuse of that discretionary power—such as an unlawful detention or illegal confiscation of property—that a violation of a person’s civil rights may occur. Fabricating evidence against or falsely arresting an individual also violates the color of law statute, taking away the person’s rights of due process and unreasonable seizure. In the case of deprivation of property, the color of law statute would be violated by unlawfully obtaining or maintaining a person’s property, which oversteps or misapplies the official’s authority. This happened multiple times in my case, This is the most personally offensive action against me in my opinion.
Failure to keep from harm: The public counts on its law enforcement officials to protect local communities. If it’s shown that an official willfully failed to keep an individual from harm, that official could be in violation of the color of law statute. This one is a given. Did you look at the affects the chemicals had on my skin? The scars that I will carry with me on my arms the rest of my life. Nobody protected me from harm. You have the evidence that proves this without a doubt.
Title 42, U.S.C., Section 14141 makes it unlawful for state or local law enforcement agencies to allow officers to engage in a pattern or practice of conduct that deprives persons of rights protected by the Constitution or U.S. laws. This law, commonly referred to as the Police Misconduct Statute, gives the Department of Justice authority to seek civil remedies in cases where law enforcement agencies have policies or practices that foster a pattern of misconduct by employees. This action is directed against an agency, not against individual officers. The types of issues which may initiate a pattern and practice investigation include:
- Lack of supervision/monitoring of officers’ actions; City of Montrose and Lee County Ia
- Lack of justification or reporting by officers on incidents involving the use of force; Lee County Sheriff’s Dept. and City of Montrose Police Dept.
- Lack of, or improper training of, officers; and Lee County Sheriffs Dept. and City of Montrose Police Dept
- Citizen complaint processes that treat complainants as adversaries. City of Montrose, Lee County sheriff dept, State of Iowa prosecuting attorney for Lee County
ADDRESSING POLICE MISCONDUCT LAWS ENFORCED BY THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE
Federal laws that address police misconduct include both criminal and civil statutes. These laws cover the actions of State, county, and local officers, including those who work in prisons and jails. In addition, several laws also apply to Federal law enforcement officers. The laws protect all persons in the United States (citizens and non-citizens).
It is a crime for one or more persons acting under color of law willfully to deprive or conspire to deprive another person of any right protected by the Constitution or laws of the United States. (18 U.S.C. §§ 241, 242). “Color of law” simply means that the person doing the act is using power given to him or her by a governmental agency (local, State, or Federal). A law enforcement officer acts “under color of law” even if he or she is exceeding his or her rightful power. The types of law enforcement misconduct covered by these laws include excessive force, sexual assault, intentional false arrests, or the intentional fabrication of evidence resulting in a loss of liberty to another. Enforcement of these provisions does not require that any racial, religious, or other discriminatory motive existed. What remedies are available under these laws? Violations of these laws are punishable by fine and/or imprisonment. There is no private right of action under these statutes; in other words, these are not the legal provisions under which you would file a lawsuit on your own.
Federal Civil Enforcement
“Police Misconduct Provision”
This law makes it unlawful for State or local law enforcement officers to engage in a pattern or practice of conduct that deprives persons of rights protected by the Constitution or laws of the United States. (42 U.S.C. § 14141). The types of conduct covered by this law can include, among other things, excessive force, discriminatory harassment, false arrests, coercive sexual conduct, and unlawful stops, searches or arrests. In order to be covered by this law, the misconduct must constitute a “pattern or practice” — it may not simply be an isolated incident. The DOJ must be able to show in court that the agency has an unlawful policy or that the incidents constituted a pattern of unlawful conduct. However, unlike the other civil laws discussed below, DOJ does not have to show that discrimination has occurred in order to prove a pattern or practice of misconduct. What remedies are available under this law? The remedies available under this law do not provide for individual monetary relief for the victims of the misconduct. Rather, they provide for injunctive relief, such as orders to end the misconduct and changes in the agency’s policies and procedures that resulted in or allowed the misconduct. There is no private right of action under this law; only DOJ may file suit for violations of the Police Misconduct Provision.
Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964
and the “OJP Program Statute”
Together, these laws prohibit discrimination on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, and religion by State and local law enforcement agencies that receive financial assistance from the Department of Justice. (42 U.S.C. § 2000d, et seq. and 42 U.S.C. § 3789d(c)). Currently, most persons are served by a law enforcement agency that receives DOJ funds. These laws prohibit both individual instances and patterns or practices of discriminatory misconduct, i.e., treating a person differently because of race, color, national origin, sex, or religion. The misconduct covered by Title VI and the OJP (Office of Justice Programs) Program Statute includes, for example, harassment or use of racial slurs, unjustified arrests, discriminatory traffic stops, coercive sexual conduct, retaliation for filing a complaint with DOJ or participating in the investigation, use of excessive force, or refusal by the agency to respond to complaints alleging discriminatory treatment by its officers. What remedies are available under these laws?DOJ may seek changes in the policies and procedures of the agency to remedy violations of these laws and, if appropriate, also seek individual remedial relief for the victim(s). Individuals also have a private right of action under Title VI and under the OJP Program Statute; in other words, you may file a lawsuit yourself under these laws. However, you must first exhaust your administrative remedies by filing a complaint with DOJ if you wish to file in Federal Court under the OJP Program Statute.
Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990
and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Section 504 prohibit discrimination against individuals with disabilities on the basis of disability. (42 U.S.C. § 12131, et seq. and 29 U.S.C. § 794). These laws protect all people with disabilities in the United States. An individual is considered to have a “disability” if he or she has a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities, has a record of such an impairment, or is regarded as having such an impairment.
The ADA prohibits discrimination on the basis of disability in all State and local government programs, services, and activities regardless of whether they receive DOJ financial assistance; it also protects people who are discriminated against because of their association with a person with a disability. Section 504 prohibits discrimination by State and local law enforcement agencies that receive financial assistance from DOJ. Section 504 also prohibits discrimination in programs and activities conducted by Federal agencies, including law enforcement agencies.
These laws prohibit discriminatory treatment, including misconduct, on the basis of disability in virtually all law enforcement services and activities. These activities include, among others, interrogating witnesses, providing emergency services, enforcing laws, addressing citizen complaints, and arresting, booking, and holding suspects. These laws also prohibit retaliation for filing a complaint with DOJ or participating in the investigation. What remedies are available under these laws? If appropriate, DOJ may seek individual relief for the victim(s), in addition to changes in the policies and procedures of the law enforcement agency. Individuals have a private right of action under both the ADA and Section 504; you may file a private lawsuit for violations of these statutes. There is no requirement that you exhaust your administrative remedies by filing a complaint with DOJ first. It was the misconduct of these officers that causes my disability.
It seems it would be appropriate to bring a complaint in violation of fair housing act, I would need to speak with the US Attorney about this issue;
I have also been advised this case is one of environmental protection violations. This case has some elements of all Federal law violations. If you have read this reply “ok”
You know full well that there are laws that protect citizens from aggressive neighbors. There is no record of a citizen having to shoot a neighbor in the knee caps to keep him from applying chemicals to their property. I would think if all you had to do was apply chemicals to a neighboring property until they have no option of excaping the chemcials except by fleeing, it would be happening everyday. It is not happening everyday, it does not happen everyday and the reason is because it is against the State and Federal law to do anything to the property of another person. They cannot do it and if they do they are subject to arrest by law enforcement. They do not get to continue the terrorist crimes against humanity until the people who are being poisoned flee. It does not happen and It is not going to happen to me. So whoever had the duty to file a trespassing complaint against this neighbor, I want to know right now. Is it the City police chief? Is it the County Attorney? Because I am going to challenge them to a fist fight. How dare they treat me as an undeserving citizen. How dare they use attorney discrection when the acts agaisnt me were life threatening. Kevin Vanderschel I am coming to town and I am going to request that you review the factual evidence, not the hearsay that you have gotten from third parites. If you collude with these local imposters I am going to swing on you. You do not have the right to violate my rights and you do not have the right to allow anyone to get away with intentionally causing me physical harm. I do not care if you can show me where it is written that you do, I am telling you you can find someone else to violated because I am not going to allow you or anyone else to do it to me . You oath or you office, which is it going to me, I am pissed off. I spent the last two years with an FBI agent who is either ignorant to the natural rights given to the people or he simply is protecting those people who gave him false information and he used it as facts. He has lied to you, I can prove it and you are going to give me the opportunity to prove not one of these locals are credible. I think I could take you in a fist fight, I don’t care how big you are. I am bigger because I have not violated anyone, I have not lied to anyone and most of all I have not critially harmed anyone. Be expecting me as I intend to come to your city on business, perhaps we could have lunch, my treat. Have your evidence prepared because I have mine all ready to battle it out, I do not want you on my case. You are not committed enough to your job to represent my case. You have already as much as told me you are going to allow my property to be taken by force and leave me with only the calassed hands from building my home, business and happiness. You should be ashamed to call your self a public servant just as the rest of them are. Collusion comes to mind.
Profile of the Sociopath
This website summarizes some of the common features of descriptions of the behavior of sociopaths.
- Glibness and Superficial Charm
- Manipulative and Conning
They never recognize the rights of others and see their self-serving behaviors as permissible. They appear to be charming, yet are covertly hostile and domineering, seeing their victim as merely an instrument to be used. They may dominate and humiliate their victims.
- Grandiose Sense of Self
Feels entitled to certain things as “their right.”
- Pathological Lying
Has no problem lying coolly and easily and it is almost impossible for them to be truthful on a consistent basis. Can create, and get caught up in, a complex belief about their own powers and abilities. Extremely convincing and even able to pass lie detector tests.
- Lack of Remorse, Shame or Guilt
A deep seated rage, which is split off and repressed, is at their core. Does not see others around them as people, but only as targets and opportunities. Instead of friends, they have victims and accomplices who end up as victims. The end always justifies the means and they let nothing stand in their way.
- Shallow Emotions
When they show what seems to be warmth, joy, love and compassion it is more feigned than experienced and serves an ulterior motive. Outraged by insignificant matters, yet remaining unmoved and cold by what would upset a normal person. Since they are not genuine, neither are their promises.
- Incapacity for Love
- Need for Stimulation
Living on the edge. Verbal outbursts and physical punishments are normal. Promiscuity and gambling are common.
- Callousness/Lack of Empathy
Unable to empathize with the pain of their victims, having only contempt for others’ feelings of distress and readily taking advantage of them.
- Poor Behavioral Controls/Impulsive Nature
Rage and abuse, alternating with small expressions of love and approval produce an addictive cycle for abuser and abused, as well as creating hopelessness in the victim. Believe they are all-powerful, all-knowing, entitled to every wish, no sense of personal boundaries, no concern for their impact on others.
- Early Behavior Problems/Juvenile Delinquency
Usually has a history of behavioral and academic difficulties, yet “gets by” by conning others. Problems in making and keeping friends; aberrant behaviors such as cruelty to people or animals, stealing, etc.
Not concerned about wrecking others’ lives and dreams. Oblivious or indifferent to the devastation they cause. Does not accept blame themselves, but blames others, even for acts they obviously committed.
- Promiscuous Sexual Behavior/Infidelity
Promiscuity, child sexual abuse, rape and sexual acting out of all sorts.
- Lack of Realistic Life Plan/Parasitic Lifestyle
Tends to move around a lot or makes all encompassing promises for the future, poor work ethic but exploits others effectively.
- Criminal or Entrepreneurial Versatility
Changes their image as needed to avoid prosecution. Changes life story readily.
Other Related Qualities:
- Contemptuous of those who seek to understand them
- Does not perceive that anything is wrong with them
- Only rarely in difficulty with the law, but seeks out situations where their tyrannical behavior will be tolerated, condoned, or admired
- Conventional appearance
- Goal of enslavement of their victim(s)
- Exercises despotic control over every aspect of the victim’s life
- Has an emotional need to justify their crimes and therefore needs their victim’s affirmation (respect, gratitude and love)
- Ultimate goal is the creation of a willing victim
- Incapable of real human attachment to another
- Unable to feel remorse or guilt
- Extreme narcissism and grandiose
- May state readily that their goal is to rule the world
(The above traits are based on the psychopathy checklists of H. Cleckley and R. Hare.)
NOTE: In the 1830’s this disorder was called “moral insanity.” By 1900 it was changed to “psychopathic personality.” More recently it has been termed “antisocial personality disorder” in the DSM-III and DSM-IV. Some critics have complained that, in the attempt to rely only on ‘objective’ criteria, the DSM has broadened the concept to include too many individuals. The APD category includes people who commit illegal, immoral or self-serving acts for a variety of reasons and are not necessarily psychopaths.
Antisocial personality disorder is characterized by a lack of regard for the moral or legal standards in the local culture. There is a marked inability to get along with others or abide by societal rules. Individuals with this disorder are sometimes called psychopaths or sociopaths.
Diagnostic Criteria (DSM-IV)
1. Since the age of fifteen there has been a disregard for and violation of the right’s of others, those right’s considered normal by the local culture, as indicated by at least three of the following:
A. Repeated acts that could lead to arrest.
B. Conning for pleasure or profit, repeated lying, or the use of aliases.
C. Failure to plan ahead or being impulsive.
D. Repeated assaults on others.
E. Reckless when it comes to their or others safety.
F. Poor work behavior or failure to honor financial obligations.
G. Rationalizing the pain they inflict on others.
2. At least eighteen years in age.
3. Evidence of a Conduct Disorder, with its onset before the age of fifteen.
4. Symptoms not due to another mental disorder.
Antisocial Personality Disorder Overview (Written by Derek Wood, RN, BSN, PhD Candidate)
Antisocial Personality Disorder results in what is commonly known as a Sociopath. The criteria for this disorder require an ongoing disregard for the rights of others, since the age of 15 years. Some examples of this disregard are reckless disregard for the safety of themselves or others, failure to conform to social norms with respect to lawful behaviors, deceitfulness such as repeated lying or deceit for personal profit or pleasure, and lack of remorse for actions that hurt other people in any way. Additionally, they must have evidenced a Conduct Disorder before the age of 15 years, and must be at least 18 years old to receive this diagnosis.
People with this disorder appear to be charming at times, and make relationships, but to them, these are relationships in name only. They are ended whenever necessary or when it suits them, and the relationships are without depth or meaning, including marriages. They seem to have an innate ability to find the weakness in people, and are ready to use these weaknesses to their own ends through deceit, manipulation, or intimidation, and gain pleasure from doing so.
They appear to be incapable of any true emotions, from love to shame to guilt. They are quick to anger, but just as quick to let it go, without holding grudges. No matter what emotion they state they have, it has no bearing on their future actions or attitudes.
They rarely are able to have jobs that last for any length of time, as they become easily bored, instead needing constant change. They live for the moment, forgetting the past, and not planning the future, not thinking ahead what consequences their actions will have. They want immediate rewards and gratification. There currently is no form of psychotherapy that works with those with antisocial personality disorder, as those with this disorder have no desire to change themselves, which is a prerequisite. No medication is available either. The only treatment is the prevention of the disorder in the early stages, when a child first begins to show the symptoms of conduct disorder.
Evidence based on hearsay, “Mark Conlee says” False statements made at the city council meetings, in the civil court case under oath, to fellow council members and used by County Attorney Mike Short to bring criminal charges against me. Charges based on fabricated laws. How many psychopaths does it take to force someone from their property using chemicals as a weapon?
Hearsay Evidence based on Mark Conlee said
APRIL 7, 2005, PAGE 204
MONTROSE COUNCIL MEETING PAGE 2
Drainage ditch. Mark Conlee spoke with Council regarding runoff from his property into a neighbor’s yard. He says Craig Junkins dug a trench and all is well now.
Authors note. Standard procedure would be that the complainant would confirm whether an issue has been resolved. There was no excavation of a ditch in front of the Conlee property, the drainage problem was caused by the non conforming in size of the new structures and illegal change of the frontage of Conlee’s property
MONTROSE COUNCIL MEETING
Councilman Junkins said he talked to Mark Conlee and according to Mr. Conlee his lawyer told him there wasn’t a problem.
Jeff Junkins has an existing conflict of interest as he is a fellow employee of Mark and Linda Conlee. Junkins made this statement at a public meeting as if it were a fact, possibly giving the general public attending a false opinion of the law. The lawyer Conlee is speaking of is not a lawyer at all, he is misrepresenting his brother who was the Lee County Detective to be a lawyer. Conlee did not seek legal advice until later in the year.
MONTROSE COUNCIL MEETING
- He (Mark Conlee) said her fence blew over during a recent storm.
- Mark Conlee is lying about my curtain blowing over, had that of happened he would have had pictures for evidence.
- Conlee says there is a lot of traffic there.
- Mark Conlee has no view of my driveway from any spot on his property. He fails to mention there is a 4 way stop on my corner. Everyone stops at that corner from any direction, he is defaming my character to be a dope dealer to collude with his brother Lee County Detective’s defaming statements about my character. The fact that I operated a successful upholstery business does bring clients to my home, however it’s not a lot of traffic.
- Conlee stated Mark Holland told him he could put a fence on his side of the line he shares with Melody Boatner.
- By making this statement Conlee indicates Holland has responded to his complaints about me. In my complaints against Conlee Holland refused his appointed duty. Holland stated that he had no intention of addressing my concerns about the nuisance drainage caused by the illegal redevelopment.
- He says he has put weed killer on his side of the fence.
- Photo evidence proves this is a false statement made by Mark Conlee
- He states Melody Boatner has put a black curtain on an insecure structure.
- I did put a privacy curtain up, however it was not insecure. I was well within my rights to install a privacy curtain. Mr. Conlee made a habit of hollering across the yard at me telling me that he was over the setbacks and such. He would make sure my customers saw him by walking to the center of his yard and giving them a staring look of disapproval. Had Conlee not violated the law and changed the frontage of his property to be the alley he may not have had the impression that my backyard was his backyard. What he seems to believe is his backyard now is actually his side yard. Conlee has no backyard to speak of as his entire property lot is filled with oversized structures that overfill his allotted space.
- Conlee says Boatner has broken the law with her wording.
- This is another false statement made in a public forum for the purpose of giving the community an unfavorable opinion of my character. I was well within my right to post “Do not spray weed poison on my property. The sign was on my property
- Conlee says the black plastic on the lawn is a nuisance.
- There is no ordinance stating black plastic is a nuisance, the material was not black plastic it was commercial landscape fabric.
- The Conlee’s say they have never had words with her and they have done nothing wrong.
- He has had words with me such as hollering across the yard to inform me that he was over the setbacks. He along with the police chief acting as a witness advised me that he was going to violate the civil court ruling that cited my right to enjoy my property, by physically moving the landscape timbers I had placed on my side of the common boundary to divert the excessive stormwater runoff that he intentionally diverted onto my property. They have violated every law in the book regarding redeveloping a legally non conforming property. However it is the duty of the City of Montrose to oversee that the redevelopment is compliant to State law. The false statements he made to the public defaming my character were enough to give an unfavorable opinion of the general public, I was unable to wear clothes and was unable to function enough to publicly challenge him on his false statements. Not that I have the duty to hold him accountable to the law, that is the duty of law enforcement and the city.
- They were attacked with the writing on the curtain and are emotionally upset.
This is not even debatable, I had every right to post “do not spray” and to install a privacy curtain, At the time there was no city fence ordinance. I was physically and emotional destroyed by the intentional terrorist acts committed against me by Mark Conlee and his conspirators of local government authorities. My right to equal protection of the law was violated by the criminal offenses committed by Conlee and the other officials who acted on his behalf. Conspiracy against rights and Deprivation of rights under color of law. Both of which are violations of Federal law.
Mark Conlee made a false police report stating that he heard gunshots come from my property, this was actually to know if I actually had any guns because that is the day he and Police chief Shipman violated the civil court order and I told him I would invoke my 2nd amendment right.
There are so many lies that I have documented that Mark Conlee make it is ridiculous that nobody even considers questioning anything he says. I am the credible one here, not one of you can find one false statement I have ever made. Lee County Detective Bob Conlee is a liar, his brother Mark has him beat by a long shot. To think these local officials are so stupid to believe anything he says only insults their own intelligence to be less that a turtle. I know for a fact that Mayor Ron Dinwiddie is not a stupid person, he had personal financial gain to be made when he sold this otherwise worthless lot to Mark Conlee for $27,000. Here is my statement to Mayor Ron Dinwiddie, fuck you RD!
This is the second of the exact same criminal complaint Lee County Attorney Mike Short filed against me on Mark Conlee’s behalf. The first one Conlee had not included the last sentence. With this sentence the charges became harassment. What a joke, City Deputy Karl Judd and County Deputy Dave Hunold were literally laughing about this when I saw them both chatting at Casey’s. Until they asked me about what happened in the case I didn’t even realize there were two of these same complaints being charged against me. Had they not brought it to my attention I would have not shown and been held in contempt. Conlee did not show but he was on vacation in Florida, Judd knew that before the court date but did not tell me till after it was over. I never even got to see the judge either time. Conlee is a pathological liar, his textbook traits allow for him to be able to convince anyone of anything. Such as just his word is good enough evidence to compel criminal charges against me. Photo evidence and an EPA report are not compelling enough evidence to get a trespassing complaint filed against him on my behalf. Bullshit, how much did he pay these guys to insult their intelligence to this level? Did these people really commit criminal offenses on Conlee’s behalf for no financial reward? We know for a fact that Mayor Dinwiddie did receive a financial reward for selling the otherwise worthless legally nonconforming lot to Mark Conlee. Dinwiddie knew the lot could not be redeveloped with any structures larger than the existing structures. Dinwiddie implicated himself on public record of his knowledge. But why was Mark Conlee exempt from complying with any written law in every illegal action he committed? The building administrator Mark Holland, has no history of not following standard procedure. Only in the illegal redevelopment of Mark Conlee’s lot did he act as a conspirator to violate the law and most importantly Boatner’s Federal private property rights. Mark Conlee was not just a little out of compliance to State building and drainage laws, he was so far out that he could not get the redevelopment recorded on the county plat map. Conlee has to little land and to oversized structures.
March 2002, Mark Conlee purchased the property adjoining mine from then Mayor Ron Dinwiddie. Creating a conflict of interest Boatners property is numbered 1-6 in the photo, Conlee property in not numbered. Both properties are equal in size however they are non typical in layout. These are the only 2 lots in Montrose that are legally described as being 6 half lots. running from street to street. Typical lots run from street to alley. Double frontage properties and reverse frontage lots shall be avoided, except where their use will produce definite advantages in meeting special situations in relation to topography, sound site planning, and proper land use. Being long and narrow lots restricted new redevelopment structures.
March 2003 Mark Conlee trucked in tons of fill dirt on lots 1 & 2 of his property (4Th St). He constructed a non-conforming, over sized, 2 story garage. The fact that this building was positioned 90 degreesfrom what would be considered normal and there was no drain tile installed caused me great concern. It was foreseeable that roof surface of this massive structure being directed to my property was going to cause adverse effects by flooding. I assumed he would install guttering and downspouts to divert storm water to the cities open drainage ditch as required by law. Mark Conlee intentionally diverted storm water to my property. He installed a culvert and new driveway which requires a special permit, as do all driveways. I suspect no standard procedure for acquiring the proper permits were followed. Prior to the redevelopment of Mark Conlee’s lots 1 & 2 there were no structures and the grade ran down to the city ditch. Iowa drainage laws state “new construction and property redevelopment stormwater run off to a neighbors land “can not be more than before development”. The amount of runoff onto my property was significant and caused my property to lose value as evident in the County property assessment records.
I spoke to Montrose Chief of Police John Farmer, at that time, about my concerns. According to Officer Farmer, the reason Mark Conlee built the over sized 2 story garage with the intention of making the second story his living quarters. Mark Conlee had recently divorced.
Soon after Mark Conlee finished building his garage he remarried. This was quite surprising since most of the neighbor and I were unaware that Mark had a girlfriend. He never introduced me to his wife when there was an plenty of opportunity. Marks new wife, Linda is co-worker of Mark Conlee. The factory they work at is considered high paying wage. Mark Conlees finances doubled with this marriage. Soon after he married the existing double-wide mobile home burnt in a suspicious nature. The double-wide home and the berm were put in place in 1972. I am certain the cause was arson because Mark Conlee told me and another witness that he “wished the trailer would burn”. Two weeks later his wish comes true.
The fact that the only 4 firefighters were on the scene were Mark Conlee, Mayor Ron Dinwiddie, Fire Chief/ Council member/Appointed building administrator Mark Holland, and Jake Holland(Mark Hollands son) and not at their regular job in neighboring towns that morning.
Mark Conlee went to work as usual that day. He returned home soon after he got to his job at a factory 3 miles from Montrose.
I called Iowa arson hotline, of course, my tip to the hot line was never investigated.
Montrose Chief of Police John Farmer stated he felt the fire was suspicious and warranted further investigation however he was told not worry about it they had it “taken care of”.
Every neighbor with the exception of one approached me stating they thought it was arson. I did not ask for details as to their reason for there suspicion.
One neighbor was curious where Mark Conlee was getting all his money from.
According to a witness several weeks prior to the Conlee fire there was a case of mobile home fire the cause of both fires being the same.
The cause was in a nature that a reasonable trained firefighter as Mark Conlee would not be so reckless.
The morning of the fire I was not awakened by the fire station siren as always, I woke from the noise of Jake Holland hooking up the hose to the hydrant on my corner.
Conlee, Dinwiddie and Mark Holland were doing nothing more than standing on the sidewalk talking. When Jake did get the hose hooked up to the hydrant, one of them told him to put the hose down.
After several hours of waiting on the sidewalk in front of the residence Mark Conlee dressed in the full body firefighters suit and went inside the home. Several minutes later he returned outside. I noticed he was empty handed. It seems unreasonable that someone’s house unexpectedly burns and they are the firefighter that enters. They would try and save a treasured memento or at least one item from inside the home.
The timeliness of this fire is suspicious in itself.
Though none of this information was disclosed to me. After the fire Mark Conlee opted not to build his living quarters upstairs in the non-conforming garage. With his newly acquired financial gains from his marriage and insurance claim from the fire Mark Conlee decided to build a new home. He wanted a large very nice home. The one thing he was unable to make larger was the size of his property lot that he bought from Mayor Ron Dinwiddie. His lot was always going to be 70 X 300′.
Mark Conlee’s grandiose behavior toward me was undeniable. The last time Mark Conlee spoke to me in a neighborly fashion, he stated to me that he wanted to top my trees so he could build his house without the limbs from my trees obstructing his space where he would need to work on the roof of his new home. I replied “I do not have a problem with that.” I wrongly assumed he would clean up the waste in the yard from the limbs and such. It was an elm tree and they do have a lot of small growth that comes with topping them, more than most other types of trees for sure. He hired a group Amish workers to top the tree and clean up the scrap material strewn about in his yard. I assumed the ran out of daylight the first day. The second day my yard was a mess. I could not get to the clothes line without clearing a path. Which I did. The third day I dropped what I was scheduled to do in my business and cleaned up the mess in my yard into 3 large piles of waste. Mark Conlee never offered to assist with any of the mess he made in my yard. I was very offended that I was kind enough to let him top my trees for his benefit and in return I was left with a major cleanup in my yard with no regard or concern that I had a business to run and I certainly did not have cleaning up the massive amount of yard waste in my scheduled customer deadline. Reflecting back, knowing narcissist I understand that when he stated “He wanted to top my trees”, he was not asking permission as a reasonable person would. He was stating that he was going to top my trees. Mark Conlee never spoke a kind neighborly word to me from that point on. He did talk to me. He did communicate with me. At one point he hollered across the yard at me informing me that “his house is over the setbacks required by State Law”. I look at him but had no verbal response.
Mark Conlee had blueprints for his new home in at this time. Standard procedure requires site layout and drainage are determined before anything else in property redevelopment. There is no previous record of complaints that suggest Building Administrator Mark Hollands acted with intentional disregard to perform his appointed duty as building administrator by following standard procedures required by Law. Witnesses were and are available to testify that Mr. Holland studied their blueprints and questioned the layout of building on their plans. Holland’s intentional negligence leaves the City of Montrose liable for Boatners damages.
Legal theories of Liability a manual provided by the State Association for Floodplain Management explains the grounds in detail. Lee County Federal Emergency Floodplain Management officer is Steve Cirinna, Husband of City of Montrose Clerk, Celeste Cirinna.
Mark Conlee’s property redevelopment simply would not fit on the narrow half lots and be in compliance with Uniform Building Laws. He illegally changed the frontage of his property so that now the massive roof surfaces directed storm water directly onto my property. This is a legally non conforming property. Not developable in anyway making the footprint of any new structures larger than the existing structures. Standard procedures require stormwater drainage be directed into the city drainage ditches. The law states that a redevelopment cannot divert more stormwater runoff onto a neighboring property than before the redevelopment. The existing structures the roof surface ran parallel with the property. Boatner received no run off from the existing structures. The adverse effects to her property were foreseeable and intentional. Mark Conlee had fill dirt trucked in and regraded his property so that all storm water was diverted onto my property. He raised the alley as it were his private driveway. General procedure is that alleys are lower than the homeowners property to receive storm water on Boatners behalf. According to Mr. Dodds a developer can not take it upon himself to remove any berm or swale that is protecting neighboring property from flooding and has existed for 10 or more years.
On 7-4-2004 Mark Conlee was putting the finishing touch on his dirt work. His work with the rented uni-loader was meticulously smooth in both the grade and level. On what looked to me to be his last pass I hollered to get his attention over the noise of the uni-loader. I stated to him that we needed a ditch dug on the common boundary because it was foreseeable that my property going to be flooded as a result of his redevelopment. He heard me but never acknowledged me, he just drove on past me without a word. I was devastated. Mark Conlee had not installed drain tile, he had unlawfully remove the berm that protected my home and property from flooding, and he had changed the frontage of his new home and garage to face the alley as his front yard and the rear of his property now was my property to serve the purpose of his alley in regards to stormwater.
My repeated requests for the proper City authority went unaddressed. The drainage issue continued. At this time also Conlee began using what is defined as terrorist acts using toxic chemicals as the weapon unlawfully applied to my property, not his as the photo evidence shows. His intent was to cause me bodily harm or death. The motive for him to eliminate me was because he discovered that he could not get the illegal redevelopment recorded on the county plat map. He simply did not have enough land to set the oversized structures on legally. This is documented in Poisoned by My Neighbor From Hell, Good Old Boy Network From Hell, My Neighbor Poisoned Me.
Feb. 3, 2005 Bob Conlee was promoted to Detective for Lee County Sheriff’s Office. Bob Conlee is Mark Conlee’s brother. He has been employed with the sheriff’s dept for most of his adult life. They actually removed the 6’ height requirement in order to hire him when he got his job as a deputy.
3-22-2005 Lee County Detective Bob Conlee was present at Mark Conlee’s property presenting himself to be the authority of the building administrator on behalf of the City. Lee County Sheriff’s Dept. Detective Bob Conlee being the brother of Mark Conlee acted in violation of a conflict of interest rule. Detective Bob Conlee having no jurisdiction in the City of Montrose acted with Mark Conlee, Mayor Ron Dinwiddie and Building Admin/Council Member/Fire Chief actions support CONSPIRACY DEPRIVATION OF RIGHTS UNDER COLOR OF LAW.
SA Thomas Reinwart disputed the allegation that I made saying that Bob Conlee was acting as a city building authority. Reinwart suggested that he was merely giving his brother advice. But we know that building official Mark Holland refused to come to the location, so yes Bob Conlee was misrepresenting his authority as a city building official.
Det. Conlee began knowingly making false statements, defaming my character to the general public. On one occasion Montrose Deputy, Mike Smith and I witnessed Det. Conlee say over the police radio in response to a report about my brother “are you sure it is not Melody driving Reggie’s truck? “I (Bob Conlee) know she used to drive Reggie’s truck”. Detective Conlee knowingly made a false statement. There is no evidence that I have ever driven my brothers truck, because I never have. Officer Conlees motive was to associate me with illegal drug activity. Based of the content of that statement it is reasonable to believe that what he is referring to is an incident in 1997 when I was mistaken for my brothers girlfriend at the time due to the fact that my brother and I have the same color truck. He owns a Chevy S10 and I own a Ford Ranger. The task force had my brothers house under surveillance waiting for his girlfriend to pull up. My brother was incarcerated at the time. He and I had not associated since an earlier disagreement in 1995. I arrived on behalf of a phone call from my Aunt, Connie Reuther. She was concerned about some movement at Reggie’s and called me asking if I would come and check on his place. Had Reggie not been incarcerated I would not have been there. Aunt Connie watched out for Reggie’s place knowing it was vacant and she lived next door to his property. When I pulled in the task force surrounded me before I had time to get out of my truck. Senior Officer Tom Crew requested identification, searched my vehicle and cleared me from any wrong doing immediately, Senior Officer Buck Jones was also on the scene and apologized for any inconvenience they had caused me. Lee County Deputy Bob Conlee could identify me on sight and knew I was not the individual who the warrant was issued for. I did not know who the warrant was issued for until a later time. That is what Detective Conlee was referring when he falsely stated he knew I used to drive Reggie’s truck. I have had no other interaction with the drug task force, ever.
Lee County Detective Bob Conlee in his delusional state of mind began defaming my character, claiming I was going to get busted for drugs. He had me under constant surveillance. When Bob Conlee was on duty he never let me out of his sight. I was well aware of his presence. I was unconcerned because I knew I was innocent of any wrongdoing. I was a homebody, I enjoyed staying home and keeping busy in my upholstery shop, yard or the house. When Detective Conlee began psychopathic stalking me I was concerned for my own safety. On two occasions he followed me from my house to my destination point. I was at a service business just out of town using the owners chop saw for a chair frame fabrication I needed. Bob came tearing in the door like a mad man. He came to the back of the building where I was operating the saw. He observed what I was doing and just turned around and left. He didn’t say a word to me or the owner of the business. When he got back in his unmarked car he defamed my character again making false statements on the police radio. He stated that I had hidden my truck at the destination point. That is a complete fabrication.
Before long the entire community knew that I was a drug dealer and my arrest was imminent. Officer Brent Shipman defamed my character by repeating this false information to the general public. Mark Conlee defamed my character at a city council meeting suggesting that I am a drug dealer. After the meeting an witness approached me stating that in her opinion Conlee’s statement was a reaching an all time low view of his character.
My initial complaint in reference to the drainage issue in March 2005. I contacted Mark Conlee, Council member/building admin. Mark Holland and Mayor Ron Dinwiddie via written notes taped to their front doors and leaving messages on their answering machines when my calls were not answered. Having not responded in May, I took the aerial photo with me to Mark Holland’s home. Mark Holland was planting his garden. I showed him the photo and pointed out the berm that Mark Conlee had removed and was causing adverse effects to my home structure. Mark Holland stated “I forgot about that” (the berm). With that I assumed as any reasonable person would, that Mark Holland would follow up or at the least re-access the redevelopment that he had issued the building permits for. He took no action to resolve the problems. He at no time represented my interests as required by the City Authority. He did continue to serve Mark Conlee’s every request with no discretion, Holland issued two more permits to Mark Conlee each for an outdoor structure.
I began having severe panic attacks, the mental anguish of watching my property being taken from any of my control was unbearable.
I knew Conlee committed arson of the existing home on his property
I was terrified that he would burn my house down with me in it.
I believe he to be a psychopath
He has absolutely no conscience.
He is a habitual liar
I knew he had no fear of being held accountable by the law for any criminal act against me.
I contacted every council member and requested they come and look at the situation. Cathy Roberts Farnsworth was the only council member having the professional courtesy to respond to my request. Cathy witnessed my property flooded as a direct result of Mark Conlee’s property redevelopment. She also told me that she asked Mark Holland if he was going to address my concerns, Mark Holland stated to her that he was not. I called Mayor Dinwiddie several times, one of which he did come to my property. I expected Mayor Dinwiddie to follow some type of standard procedure and together would walk the property line visually and discuss the drainage issues that were so prominent. He got out of his vehicle and stood near the sidewalk long enough to tell to me “he (Conlee) can’t do that (divert storm water onto my property), but its a private issue”. He returned directly to his truck and left with no intent of being open to my opinion or further discussion. Certainly not the character I know Ron Dinwiddie to be.
I have known Ron Dinwiddie personally since I was a teenager. He and his family have been like my second family since I was young. His sister and I have been best friends throughout our youth. His mother made it a point to tell me she loved me when she became ill prior to her death. I can visualize Dinwiddie’s mannerisms as he would and should have stated at the City Council meeting advising them and Holland that “he can’t do that”. Ron Dinwiddie knew he was telling me a lie when he made that statement to me.
According to City of Montrose Code of Ordinances (Code of Iowa, Sec. 380.5 & 380.6)
6. Negotiations. Represent the City in all negotiations properly entered into in accordance with law or ordinance. The Mayor shall not represent the City where this duty is specifically delegated to another officer by law, ordinance, or Council direction.
Dinwiddie had no authority to act as building administrator, Dinwiddie had the duty as Mayor to manage the City officials and had the duty to direct my issue to the proper authority, Mark Holland.The following day I went to City Hall and got copies of the building permits issued to Mark Conlee by appointed building administrator Mark Holland for Mark Conlee’s garage and new home. By this time Holland had issued 2 more permits to Mark Conlee for out buildings. Dinwiddie and Holland were both co-conspirators with an existing conflict of interest on Mark Conlees behalf.
I was denied equal protection of the law.
My attention was focused on the permit issued for the new house. Conlee’s entire property redevelopment increased stormwater run off on to my property. But it was Conlees new home that was causing adverse effects to structure of my home. The permit is not completed according to general procedure. The permit was signed by building administrator Mark Holland, but not signed by the builder Mark Conlee. The authority is Mark Holland. His intentional negligence to disregard his duty to address my concerns on behalf of his special relationship with buddy there leaves no oversite or accountability, this is unacceptable. Hence, the purpose of uniform building codes and the issuance of building permits as noted on public record by Mayor Dinwiddie
I contacted State Rep. Phil Wise requesting some assistance, he called City Hall and requested I be added to the agenda so I could direct my questions to building admin Mark Holland. With in minutes of Mr. Wises phone call to City Hall, Lee County Detective Bob Conlee arrived at his brother Mark Conlee’s home. Mark Holland did not respond. It was no surprise that at the City Council meeting in which Mr. Wise requested I be added to the agenda Holland was absent, a rare occasion according to his history. I did address the council and public record shows Mayor Dinwiddie implicated the City of Montrose as being liable by interrupting me when I following procedure had the floor to speak to Council. When Mayor Dinwiddie finished what he interrupted me to say I submitted the building permit in question showing that Mark Holland representing the City has signed it but Mark Conlee the builder had not. There was no discussion as to Mayor Dinwiddie’s acknowledgement of liability was obviously on the City after I submitted the unsigned permit. There was no response from Mayor Dinwiddie to me privately either. I followed up with an email to State Rep. Phil Wise. Mr. Wise did not respond. I am aware that Mr. Wise did not have any real authority to rectify my problem. He was up front with that information, out of professional courtesy he used his political influence to contact City Hall on my behalf. Also this was just prior to Mr. Wise’s retirement I am sure he felt the City would address my concerns when I presented the questionable document. Mayor Dinwiddie’s own statements at that public meeting implicate himself in CONSPIRACY DEPRIVATION OF RIGHTS UNDER COLOR OF LAW.
July 2, 2005 My skin condition is spreading Mark Conlee continues to unlawfully apply chemicals to my property on a regular basis when he maintains his yard. Officer Shipman still denies my request for an incident report as requested in May.
July 7, 2005 Council minutes state Mark Holland and Jeff Junkins are both are looking for nuisance violations. Both have a special relationships with Mark Conlee, evidence supports an existing conflict of interest. This meeting also includes evidence that the City was uncooperative in submitting documents to the Ombudsman on behalf of my allegations in a complaint I filed with them. It is unreasonable behavior for the City Clerk not to cooperate with the ombudsman’s request. I find it more unreasonable the Ombudsman determine to drop the case based on hearsay from Cirinna and it is beyond suspicious as to why the City would not submit the request for documents, yet the Ombudsman dismissed my complaint stating they found no wrongdoing, without viewing the questionable documents. I am offended that the ombudsman was negligent in investigating the evidence I had supporting my side of the case. I am offended that this City finds no duty to follow standard procedure on behalf of one individual.
Still searching for a solution to rectify the drainage situation, I joined cyburbia forum on the internet. I was desperate for some assistance as my property was being washed away due to uncontrollable flooding. One individual on the forum was particularly interested in my situation, he advised me to contact Lee County Extension agent, Bob Dodds. Mr. Dodds had no duty or authority to rectify the situation. Mr. Dodds did come to my property to access the situation. He took photos and wrote a letter to Mayor Dinwiddie on my behalf, including a copy of the State of Iowa Drainage Law Manual. Mr. Dodds happened to live in Montrose. In reviewing the building permit issued by Mark Holland for Mark Conlees new home, Mr. Dodds noted a few discrepancies. One being that Mark Conlee had not been required to paid the fee for the permit. There was no response from Mayor Dinwiddie in reference to the letter written on my behalf by Robert Dodds. Mayor Dinwiddie was intentionally negligent in his duty as Mayor to manage and direct appointed to Mark Holland to perform his duty. I have found no case in which the building administrator was allowed by a Mayor to refused his duty to represent the State building code. This is unreasonable professional behavior by all these officials by any standards.
With all the written laws, rules and regulations in place to protect citizens from being forced to sue City’s and neighbor’s being ignored on behalf of Mark Conlee. The City’s intentional negligence left no other recourse but for me to sue them.
I was looking for an attorney. John Farmer suggested Steve Swan. John briefed Steve Swan as to the case and our initial meeting 6-21-2005. Steve Swan advised that we would sue the City of Montrose and Mark Conlee adding the comment, (that I was already aware of), that the City is where the money is. Mr. Swan was quite taken when I submitted my list of witnesses, he said he felt the list itself was quite compelling, another fact (that I was already aware of). Mr. Swan made a comment that in hindsight I now question in regard to his ethical behavior. He told me that Bob Conlee had already lied to him, stating that his brother Mark had not altered the grade or elevation of the lot located at 105 N 5th St. Swan also said that officer Farmer told him that I did not have money for such an unnecessary expense and agreed that we would barter upholstery service for his representing my case. On the way home I had to pull over because I was literally sobbing, so grateful that Steve Swan was going to submit my evidence to the court. He sent a letter of intent to Mark Conlee on my behalf that afternoon.
The unexpected attack on my property also caused adverse effects to my business. This was the first time in 15 years in business I had failed to meet a customers requested delivery date. I bought 28 railroad ties and placed them down the non typical 300′ common boundary to divert the storm water from Conlee’s to the City ditch. Typical psychopathic traits began to emerge from Mark Conlee. He was upset that I had diverted the storm water. According to a witness, Mark Conlee contacted Building Admin Mark Holland requesting that Holland find a code or ordinance that would require me to remove the diversion. Mark Holland could not find a loophole to overrule my Federal Right to defend my property. Mark Holland should have followed standard procedures as he had always done in the past and all my damages could have been avoided.
I lost the enjoyment of my property due to the fact that every time I would go out in my yard Mr. Conlee would make his presence known. He would make his presence known, then just glare at me and anyone accompanying me. The day that he hollered across the fence that he was over the setbacks required by state law I decided to install a privacy curtain. Fully within my legal right, allowing for the encroachment, I erected a conduit frame and stretched industrial landscaping fabric down the property line to serve as a privacy curtain. My technique was bare bones conduit and pipe clamps but it served my purpose well. Welcome to the City of Montrose, Iowa . MINUTES10-6-05 evidence supporting Mark Conlee has a vendetta against me. A vendetta that has no end to it until he acquires my property, at any cost. He knew he had to have my property to ever get his illegal redevelopment recorded on the county plat map. Conlee is not completely liable, the City of Montrose allowed and assisted in every criminal act committed against me. There are many court records in which a noncompliant structure is ordered to be removed, there are no other cases in which a person has been allowed to unlawfully apply chemicals to a neighbors property ongoing for 5 years, until the neighbor has only two options to remedy the situation themselves.
Defamation of my character referred to as “crazy” by Mayor Dinwiddie as told to me by a witness was taken to be a truth by the local community in general. Dinwiddie’s wife Sue Kearns Dinwiddie and a former friend of mine sent me email stating everyone, “thinks your crazy, Mel”. I felt no duty to explain to either of these people my situation. I did want to preserve my friendship with Sue Kearns Dinwiddie. I invited her over to my house to talk. She arrived with her granddaughter, the conversation was minimal. Not directly addressing my mental stability, I assume she was observing the severity of my skin condition. In hindsight, when she was leaving Sue walked around to the side of the house facing Conlees property. She indicated that my sidewalk has sunk. I did not respond at the time. I will now state that my sidewalk sloped away from my house in a manner of directing stormwater to the existing swale, besides the house. Was Sue Kearns Dinwiddie acting on behalf the City of Montrose Building Administrator? She did not announce that she was, but I believe her intent was doing exactly that. She has no authority to do anything on behalf of the City of Montrose. According to what Sue had told me when I rented her garage in 1995 she has used her position as the Mayor’s wife to influence former City employee Police Chief John Farmer. In 1995 one of Sues identical twin boys had been caught by Officer Farmer in a moving violation of some type. She was concerned that the twin would lose his driving privileges. She told me that she was going to contact Officer Farmer, as she didn’t need a problem like that affecting her sons driving privileges. I am sure she did contact Farmer, I do not know if he dismissed the complaint or not. I assume he did if Sue Kerns Dinwiddie directed him to do so as a threat to his employment. Sue Kearns Dinwiddie took her position as the Mayor’s wife to a position of authority when in fact she had absolutely no power of authority. The State Representative following behind Phil Wise has been Jerry Kearns, relative to Sue Kearns Dinwiddie. He has failed to respond to any of my attempts to get answers from him. No response at all. There is an option of recusal for anybody with an existing conflict of interest, not an option for any of these criminal supporters.
Mayor Dinwiddie gave up his seat in the 2006 election after 8 terms, he was busy building himself a beautiful new home on the river. Mark Holland did not get re-elected. Mark Conlee ran and was elected as council member.
Tony Scumbaito running unopposed was elected to Mayor. John Geyer who held his position in the past was elected council member, and appointed building administrator. Chief of Police John Farmer resigned taking a job with the LCSO. The City hired Brent Shipman to be Chief of Police. Brent was not from Montrose, he was 20 years old and he was all ears and mouth in listening to Bob Conlee‘s false allegations about me, repeating the false information publicly.
A witness advised me on a Monday that Mark Conlee had been at City Hall reading the codes and ordinances. I drove past City Hall the rest of the week and, Mark Conlee was at City Hall from 3:30 until 5:00 p.m. every evening. Soon after he and City Clerk studied the City Code he announced he was running for City Council. Witnesses were and are prepared to testify that their family member was aware that his intent was to use his position to “get me back”. His narcissistic personality disorder he could not control
Mark Conlee was elected to council. His intent was clearly to use his position to act on the vendetta he has against me. Mark Conlee appointed himself to a community development committee that never existed prior to his election. He obviously decided that he would get me back by using nuisance weed ordinance against me. He was, like his brother, literally consumed by making me out to be something I am not. Filing frivolous complaints was a constant vehicle to harassment me. According to my research psychopaths is known to be a genetic disorder.
About City Clerk Celeste Cirinna conspiracy deprivation of rights under color of law, intent to cause financial harm
At this time Mark Conlee acted as an authority on the City Street Dept. which he had no authority to do. The City insurance does not cover him as an employee. Mark Conlee unlawfully applied toxic chemicals to the City easement on my property along 4th St. A neighbor/witness Sally Fowler Sandquist contacted the Epa, The investigation determined Glyphosate a toxic chemical in Roundup by Monsanto had been unlawfully applied to my property and had washed downstream to the next two property, killing all living plant life.
This evidence was available but never reviewed by an investigator as it should have been.

I assume this only applies to the County, even though it says “enforcing State and County Laws”. Cities that do not enforce the County and State laws are not under any authority beside their own, right? I was (criminal) assaulted in the City of Montrose, I reported multiple (criminal) offenses of fraud by a city employee, I reported illegal property redevelopment and noncompliant building permits being issued, I reported (criminal) trespassing occurring on a routine basis in the City of Montrose, I reported violations of State and Federal rights by the City of Montrose and Lee County officials, I reported (criminal) conspiracy against rights and (criminal) deprivation of rights violations being committed by City of Montrose and Lee County, Iowa officials. I reported (criminal) conspiracy to cover up evidence by city and county officials. The evidence I have is solid as a rock. Somebody has some splaining to do because what is stated above and copied from the Sheriff’s website and my experience are very conflicting. Maybe they should edit their website making it clear that everything begins or doesn’t begin with

Yes that makes much more accurate and honest statement in regard to the Lee County Sheriff’s dept.
Well this letter said basically the same as the first letter I received from the US Attorney’s office.
He said he read the 43 page complaint and that my allegations are based on assumptions. I am telling you that I am not ignorant. I would not have anything in my complaint that I did not have evidence to back it up. The fact that nobody has taken the time to review this evidence is contradicting. So I emailed the nearly completed log of events as they occurred. I also ask that he be courteous enough to send me a reply that he did received the 249 page partially completed complaint. It is a long read but it is in a slide show so please give it a review and then tell me that I do not have enough evidence to prove I am a victim of conspiracy against rights and deprivation of rights under color of law. I am not impressed at all as to the way anything is this case has been handled. I advised the local FBI agent to look into the financial record to see if any of these individuals received payment, or took a bribe. He refused. I advised him that many of my witnesses have passed. I told him that two of them have been diagnosed with cancer. Here is the link to my incomplete complaint I sent him recently. I know that a person is in violation of trespassing if they do anything to your property. In this case this neighbor unlawfully applied chemicals for no other reason than to eliminate me. https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/18mtF3_4WB2u3mEe1OoSb2QpwlgvI25ulAS5BheCPq4Q/edit?usp=sharing
The letter stated that the statute of limitations has expired. WHAT? I contact Senator Grassley in 2007. I have been complaining the last several years that the timeliness is unacceptable. Seems the US Attorney is just recently getting my complaint. I am sorry but I am not responsible for any statute of limitations expiring in this case. Whoever received it from Senator Grassley is responsible for any mishandling of my case. A case that is unprecedented. A case in which the most brutal means of attack were used. Chemical weapons were used with intent to cause serious injury or death. They did cause serious lifelong injury and had I not fled I would be dead. If I would have done this to another human being I would be in prison the rest of my life. How can the statute of limitations be expired if the FBI was investigating this case appropriately? Who is the victim of mishandling of a complaint. I am. So what now. I have followed all the proper procedures, except during the time I was blind and unable to function normally. I could not get my vision restored until 2012. I could not read. This is really a disappointment, I thought my case was being investigated all this time, but it seems the US Attorney is just recently getting my complaint. Come on now, this is unacceptable. Senator Grassley will hopefully deal with incompetence. He supports whistleblowers and exposing corruption. I hope he gets to the root of the problem with my case. The evidence supports all my allegations, the perps implicate themselves on public record. What could go wrong?
This is typical of the good old boy network. I had been charged multiple times with frivolous charges by the City of Montrose, all charges were alway dismissed that were brought against me. This is typical of how the good old boys went over and above on Mark Conlee’s behalf. The judge had always followed the letter of the law in my cases. This is nothing less than Mark Conlee advising Mark Holland to offer the judge a bribe to find me guilty of a municipal offense. He was so angry when he lost the civil case he filed against me for “loss of enjoyment of his property”. He could not stand the fact that I had broken no law. The charges brought against me were on fabricated laws and ordinances, how the hell does a reasonable person thing a judge is going to rule when the charges brought against me do not exist? Typical psychopathic behavior. He whole purpose for running and getting elected to city council by election fraud was for the purpose of making me take down my privacy curtain and to attempt to cause me financial harm by trying to get me fined. It wasn’t enough for him that the chemicals he had unlawfully applied to my property had me to a state of total inability to function, I found myself in court all winter. Anything he would come up with the rest of them all supported but they implicated themselves when the issue was not about me. I don’t care who you are, nobody has the right to do anything to another person’s property. Not even Mark Conlee according to the real law. Not “Mark Conlee says” law. For the record Mark Holland was not a city council member at this time. Why is council member Conlee asking Mark Holland to ask the judge anything?

The Criminal Division is charged with the responsibility of enforcing federal criminal laws in the Southern District of Iowa. The Criminal Division has a total of 24 prosecutors posted across the District–including in the Des Moines headquarters office and in the District’s two branch offices in Council Bluffs and Davenport. These prosecutors work closely with paralegals, legal assistants, victim witness specialists, and others to fulfill these responsibilities, along with a wide variety of federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies and federal grand juries empaneled to investigate violations of federal law.
Terrorism and National Security
The fight against terrorism is the highest priority of the U.S. Department of Justice, and the U.S. Attorney’s Office is dedicated to combating and defeating terrorism. We work with our partners in law enforcement, the intelligence community, the military, and diplomatic circles to investigate, prosecute, disrupt and prevent terrorism. Criminal Division attorneys work with the Anti-Terrorism Advisory Council and an intelligence specialist in pursuing this important mission.
Fraud and CorruptionCriminal Division attorneys investigate and prosecute complex fraud, public corruption, and financial crimes that the federal government is uniquely qualified to handle.
- Criminal Division attorneys participate in a Working Group, along with the office of Iowa Attorney General Tom Miller, to pursue mortgage fraud cases, along with investigating agencies such as the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Department of Housing and Urban Development–Office of Inspector General, and the FDIC-Office of Inspector General.
- Criminal Division attorneys play a leading role in the Iowa Health Care Fraud Task Force, which identifies cases involving medicaid fraud, insurance fraud, and other types of health care fraud for investigation and prosecution. Federal agencies such as the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Department of Health and Human Services–Office of Inspector General, as well as the Iowa Attorney General’s Office and state agencies also participate in these efforts.
- Criminal Division attorneys pursue other types of fraud and public corruption cases with these same agencies, as well as with the United States Postal Inspection Service, the Internal Revenue Service–Criminal Investigation, and the United States Social Security Administration–Office of Inspector General, among other agencies.
Narcotics Trafficking and Violent CrimeWorking with both the United States Drug Enforcement Administration and a wide variety of state and local drug enforcement task forces, Criminal Division attorneys investigate and prosecute federal criminal offenses involving the unlawful importation, possession, distribution, and manufacture of controlled substances, including methamphetamine, cocaine, heroin, ecstacy, and marijuana, as well as prescription drug abuse. Criminal Division attorneys also handle cases involving violent crime, such as armed bank robberies, unlawful possession of firearms (as part of the Department’s Project Safe Neighborhoods program), arson, and violent crime associated with narcotics trafficking.
Computer Crimes, Child Exploitation, and Human TraffickingCriminal Division attorneys, working with the Iowa Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) and other agencies, prosecute a broad range of computer-related crimes, with special emphasis on crimes that involve the sexual exploitation of children and Internet child pornography, including as part of the Department’s Project Safe Childhood Program. Criminal Division Attorneys, along with victim-witness specialists and others, also work to investigate and prosecute interstate prostitution, human trafficking, the enticement of children across state lines for immoral purposes, and unregistered sex offenders who travel across state lines in violation of the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act (SORNA).
Environmental and Wildlife CrimesCriminal Division attorneys, working with both the Environmental Protection Agency and the Iowa Department of Natural Resources, investigate and prosecute criminal violations of federal environmental laws, including violations relating to the improper disposal and storage of hazardous materials and violations of the Clean Water Act and the Clean Air Act. Criminal Division attorneys also work with the United States Fish & Wildlife Service in pursing cases involving interstate trafficking in unlawfully taken wildlife and similar crimes.
Immigration Crimes and Program FraudCriminal Division attorneys handle a variety of offenses involving the integrity of government programs, such as those administered by the Social Security Administration, the Small Business Administration, the Veteran’s Administration, and the Railroad Retirement Board. Criminal Division attorneys also work closely with the Department of Homeland Security and its agencies to prosecute violations of the immigration laws, such as visa fraud, alien smuggling, and unlawful reentry to the United States following deportation.
Civil RightsCriminal Division attorneys, together with the Civil Rights Division of the U.S. Department of Justice, assess complaints alleging violations of the criminal civil rights laws and, in appropriate cases, conduct grand jury investigations and initiate criminal prosecutions for civil rights violations.
Appellate UnitThe Criminal Division’s Appellate Unit handles the office’s criminal appeals before the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals, which is the federal appellate court with jurisdiction over cases arising from Iowa and several neighboring states. Additionally, the Appellate Unit, in consultation with the Department of Justice, decides when to seek appellate review of trial level rulings adverse to the United States, and coordinates with the Department of Justice if further review of cases arising from the Southern District of Iowa is sought before the United States Supreme Court.
Asset Recovery Team–Forfeiture and CollectionsThe Criminal Division’s Asset Recovery Team supports the prosecution of criminal and civil forfeiture cases and enforces and collects criminal and civil debts, including restitution for victims in criminal cases. In addition to litigating civil forfeiture cases, this team of specialists provides support to Criminal Division attorneys on all criminal forfeiture issues. Forfeiture attorneys and paralegals work with federal law enforcement agencies, assisting their criminal investigations by identifying assets subject to forfeiture and developing evidence for seizure and forfeiture. The team also collects criminal debts, such as fines and restitution orders, and civil debt to federal agencies, such as student loans and federally-guaranteed mortgages, and works with Criminal Division attorneys to identify assets that can be used for restitution to crime victims.
The Civil Division of the U.S. Attorney’s Office represents the United States and its departments and agencies at both the trial and appellate levels in civil actions filed in the state and federal courts in the Southern District of Iowa. The activities of the Civil Division include defensive civil litigation, affirmative civil enforcement actions and miscellaneous matters.
The types of defensive cases handled by the Civil Division include tort cases filed against the United States under the Federal Tort Claims Act; claims against individual employees of the United States alleging constitutional violations (also known as Bivens Actions); discrimination cases brought by federal employees based upon race, color, sex, religion, national origin, disability or age; review of administrative action under the Administrative Procedures Act; and appeals of denial of Social Security disability claims.
Affirmative LitigationThe Civil Division brings civil affirmative actions under the False Claims Act to pursue false claims or fraud against the government, Americans with Disabilities Act and the Fair Housing Act and other statutes designed to enforce civil rights, as well as environmental statutes and other health and safety laws.
Miscellaneous MattersCertain miscellaneous matters are also handled by the Civil Division, including summons enforcement action on behalf of the Internal Revenue Service, subpoenas to federal officials, commercial litigation to collect debts owed the United States and protect the government’s interests in bankruptcy and foreclosure actions.
The motive was to acquire my property as his new redevelopment of an otherwise worthless property was non-compliant to State building codes and he could not get the illegal redevelopment recorded on the County plat map. Having been successful in acquiring my property after 5 years of exposing me to the chemicals, He and those who participated are living large and I suffer from chronic health problems and was homeless for over 3 years and blind.
Failure to Intervene,
An officer who purposefully allows a fellow officer to violate a victim’s Constitutional rights may be prosecuted for failure to intervene to stop the Constitutional violation. To prosecute such an officer, the government must show that the defendant officer was aware of the Constitutional violation, had an opportunity to intervene, and chose not to do so. This charge is often appropriate for supervisory officers who observe uses of excessive force without stopping them, or who actively encourage uses of excessive force but do not directly participate in them.
Law does not provide for Lee County Sheriff’s Detective Bob Conlee to act as a building official for the city of Montrose. Or for Brent Shipman not to issue a trespassing ticket because “he did not want to make him mad”. Or any other the other officers who were involved or knew about the illegal in the taking of my property using chemicals as a weapon. https://poisonedbymyneighborfromhell.com
Throughout the violence that has been committed against me I have searched for agencies or resources that assist with cases committed in the United States. My situation is supported by what is described as crimes against humanity, yet all roads lead to other Countries. Public Corruption cases being exposed are easily found outside of the boundaries of the United States. What’s up with all the assistant given by citizens for causes outside of the United States. The corruption within the United States is overflowing and there are no agencies that seem to be concerned with or willing to expose these crimes. Outside of the United States media is sure to report about people being poisoned. Inside the United States this is happening but not being published for the general public to be informed about. Double standards and lack of news coverage about cases in this Country makes it all to easy for our imposter leaders to get away with these crimes as, out of sight out of mind, seems to be the standard procedure in reporting on matters of this nature. https://poisonedbymyneighborfromhell.com
The Bureau’s Public Corruption program focuses on:
- Investigating violations of federal law by public officials at the federal, state, and local levels of government;
In my case it is the City and County officials who conspired against my Federally protected rights. It is the local law enforcement who deprived my of my Federally protected rights under color of law. So if the FBI works closely with local law enforcement agencies there is no doubt some locals will be lying to the Feds. They cannot work closely with the local law enforcement if they are going to expose local public corruption in my City and County.
That statement conflicts with this statement
- No other law enforcement agency has attained the kind of success the FBI has achieved in combating corruption. This success is due largely to the cooperation and coordination from a number of federal, state, local, and tribal law enforcement agencies to combat public corruption. These partnerships include, but are not limited to the Department of Justice, Agency Offices of Inspector General; law enforcement agencies’ internal affairs divisions; federal, state and local law enforcement and regulatory investigative agencies; and state and county prosecutor’s offices
My witnesses are dying, my hope is fading, my destiny is being made for me. I have no control of how this story ends. I do know that it will be ending soon.
Sheriff Weber recently told me there has been an investigation into my allegations since April. The only thing that I am aware of that has happened is the city clerk still participating the conspiracy to cover up the evidence of the City officials implicating themselves by taking down the City’s webpage that had the min of the meeting since 2005.
This situation is not difficult to understand.
Mark Conlee, brother of a Lee County Detective purchased the legally non conforming property from Mayor Dinwiddie. He began redeveloping the property by tearing down the existing single car garage, trucking in enough fill dirt to elevate the property in some areas 10′ high that before, he constructed a nonconforming 2 story oversized garage. He altered the roof surface from standard procedure by turning it so it diverted storm water runoff directly onto my property, he changed the grade of the fill dirt so all storm water ran onto my property. My property lost value of $10,000 just because the drainage was foreseeable going to cause my property uncontrollable flooding. In questioning this illegal structure I was advised Conlee intended to build a living quarters in the upper level. Standard procedure requires drain tile to be installed around the base of the slab, it was not. Standard procedure requires gutter and downspout to be installed and directed to the city drainage ditch, it was directed directly to divert storm water from the massive roof onto my property.
The following spring there was a suspicious fire that supposedly destroyed the existing trailer. Suspicious because the only firemen on the scene were Mayor Dinwiddie, building official/fire chief Mark Holland, Mark Conlee and the son of Mark Holland. The son Jake was a former resident of the Conlee property, we discussed the fire after the fact. He advised me that only 2 weeks prior there was a trailer fire at a nearby mobile home park that was caused by the same M.O. I understand my testimony is not acceptable but several weeks prior to the fire after his new garage was finished he came over to my yard and gave a friend who was with me a message from his brother in Fla. At that time I asked him, “now that you have that nice new garage what are you going to do with the trailer, he said he wanted it to burn. I was still understanding he was going to build a living quarters in the second level of the garage. The morning of the fire, there was no fire alarm that went off, being 1 block from my house I was woke by the siren. That morning I was awaken by the clanging of the fire hose being connected to the hydrant on my corner of the street. The only fireman who acted in an attempt to extinguish any fire was the son, Jake Holland. The other 3 on the scene did nothing but stand on the sidewalk the entire time and chat. Jake got the hose connected and was motioned to lay it down. There was no action to extinguish any fire. After some amount of time an hour or so Mark Conlee puts on the hazard uniform and enters the home. He exits about 5 minutes later empty-handed and gives the others still on the sidewalk a nod. They continue to stand on the sidewalk for another hour or so. Jake puts the equipment away and they go on about their day. I find it suspicious that Dinwiddie and Holland did not go to their regular job that morning. Conlee went to work and was called home. There was no smoke coming from the building, there was nothing telling that a fire had happen to the building after it was over.
Conlee almost immediately builds a new home. There is no question that the building permit is illegal. He changed the frontage of the home to now be the alley, that is illegal. The roof surface is also altered from standard procedure just as the garage and directed to divert storm water directly onto my property. I advised Conlee that we needed a ditch, reasonably to run directly down the common boundary since he was the one who had the new redevelopment that caused the problems to my property. He was unwilling to have it on his property, the man I was going to barter upholstery for excavating a ditch backed out fearing a liability if he happened to get on Conlee property since there had been no survey, only a verbal agreement on the common boundary. Conlee illegally removed an existing berm that had been put in place by the original owners of both property for the sole purpose of protecting my home structure from storm water runoff from the Conlee property when the original home burnt prior to 1972 when they brought in the mobile home. Berm and swale were commonly used at that time for this purpose. The berm was on the Conlee side of the common boundary, the swale was on my side of the common boundary. The building officials refused to address my concerns, his duty is to oversee property redevelopment is in compliance with State building and drainage laws. When he refused to come to the location I contacted Lee County Ext, agent Robert Dodds, he did come to the location and took some photos. I had many questions I showed him the building permit which lacked the signature of the builder Mark Conlee but was signed and approved by the building official. Mr. Dodds noticed some other discrepancies on that building permit. He questioned why years before when he built a garage he had to pay a pretty significant amount for the fee charge of his building permit. Mark Conlee had paid no fee according to the permit. He explained that in regards to storm water drainage and property development you are not allowed to divert more storm water to the neighboring property than before the redevelopment. He sent a copy of the letter to Mayor Dinwiddie allow with drainage laws. Dinwiddie had no regard for this expert opinion. When all other times any opinion from Mr. Dodd has held high regard with the city of Montrose.
I hired attorney Steve Swan to sue the city of Montrose, retired Sheriff’s officer John Farmer referred him to me. John worked for the city of Montrose prior to moving up to the sheriff’s dept. He is well aware of the characters who hold positions in Montrose. I met with Swan and he advised me that John Farmer had briefed him on the case, John told him that I did not have many financial resources. I had been self-employed as an upholsterer since I purchased my property in 1995. I was never without work, but I basically charged what I needed to pay my bills, explains why I had a backlog of work for over a year at all times. Swan also advised me that he had spoken to Lee County Detective Bob Conlee, Bob had already lied to him when he told him his brother never trucked in any fill dirt but poured the new slabs just as the property existed. He advised me that my case was a tort case and we would sue both parties, Conlee and the city. He asked if I would be willing to barter upholstering his vehicle for his service. I willingly took him up on that offer, I was so moved by his kindness I had to pull over on the highway because I was crying with gratitude. The following day I received a copy of a letter of intent he sent to Conlee the following afternoon. The letter demanded Conlee remedy the nuisance drainage problem in 10 day or he would file an injunction against him. Conlee began removing the existing evidence of the berm and its height. He built a little roof over the door on the side of his house as if he had not changed the frontage of his property.
I emailed Swan multiple times on the 10th day telling him to file the injunction. I never heard another word from him and he filed no injunction to stop work as he claimed he would at our first meeting.
Soon after this a rash developed on my shins, I referred to it as a rash because that was what it appeared to be to me. I thought perhaps an allergic reaction to something. I had never had any problems prior to this with my skin, I had never even have poison ivy. The itch was intense, nothing similar to a bug bite. I had used a push lawnmower since I purchased my place, I did that for cardio, In fact I never wanted a riding lawn mower. The next time I went out to mow I noticed that the neighbor had applied something to my side of the 300’ common boundary. I had never been exposed to what I assumed was weed killer. I had not changed my routine for over ten years. I did some research about medical issues, skin conditions seemed reasonable that whatever this neighbor was applied to my side of the common boundary to be the most reasonable cause of this suddenly developer skin condition. had now rapidly spread over other parts of my body. I told him and the new police chief the day I discovered it not to apply anything to my property and explained I thought it could be the cause of my skin eruptions. I requested an incident report from the police chief directly after I located Chief Shipman.
By this time my opinion of Mr. Conlee’s character was undesirable. He knew my property was flooding, my foundation had been damaged and he was unwilling to allow me to have a ditch dug down the common boundary. He continued using the chemicals without hesitation as routine yard maintenance. I kept requesting the incident report from Chief Shipman and he kept coming up with excuses as to why he did not have it for me, a witness says he was lying about the reason he did not have it. When I did receive it 16 months later the first on was not satisfactory in detail, I told him no that I wanted one with the details. A week later he gave me a half-hearted report. By this time my rash had become a severe skin condition. My entire body was raw. The pain was excruciating, it was unbearable to wear clothes.
I had requested a trespassing complaint be file on my behalf early on. Every request denied by the City and Lee County Attorney. The chemicals now had become a weapon with intent to cause me serious injury. The fact that I was denied equal protection of the law and access to the courts make this a conspiracy deprivation of rights under color of law.
It became clear to me the reason Conlee would not stop applying chemicals to my property when I realized he was unable to get the illegal redevelopment recorded on the county plat map.
Lee County attorney Mike Short suggested mitigation two years in a row, I was willing, however Mark Conlee was not. He knew his illegal redevelopment would be order to be removed. Taken back to the original state. His excuse the first year was because he had paid an attorney to represent him in a civil case he filed against me. He violated that court order as if it never happened. There is nobody willing to grab this man and put him to the ground like they do on COPS. That is exactly what it would take for him to ever abide by any authority. In that case the judge dismissed his case citing my right to enjoy my property. I put up a privacy curtain and Mr. Conlee believing my backyard was his backyard because he changed the frontage of his home to face the alley was offended by the curtain. I knew I was well within my rights. I always know the law before I ever act. I felt a sense of relief by the judge’s ruling, my right to enjoy my property in my mind meant no more chemicals on my property either. I was wrong about what the ruling meant to Mark Conlee and Police Chief Brent Shipman, they approached me in my yard one day and Conlee advised me he was going to my the railroad ties I had legally placed down the common boundary to divert the storm water to the city drainage ditch. I advised him if he had a problem with the boundary line he would need to file another civil complaint. I question what Brent Shipman was doing by being with Conlee. He advised me that he was acting as a witness that Conlee was telling me ahead of time that he was going to alter my property. At that point I advised them both that I intended to invoke my second amendment right. I advised Chief Shipman never to knock on my door again. I headed to the house to get my weapon, you never saw two adults run up a hill so fast.
Imagine now, that here I am, my body completely raw, trying to meet deadlines for my upholstery clients and having to defend my property every evening beginning at 3:30 pm every night.
I retrieved my weapon, a single shot long arm pellet gun and stood guard on my property till way past dark. I had to have some rest, I had other responsibilities so I went in the house and laid down to sleep a bit. When I woke up the next morning I went out to check the boundary line. Sure enough Conlee had moved the railroad ties I placed to protect my property. I had them held in place with stabs. I had new lawn edging put in place and the railroad ties were pushed every which way. The stab’s were broken off, the edging pull out of the ground and just laying there. My skin condition was full body, I was terrified to go near that boundary in the first place, I have never felt so violated in my life. This was done in contempt of a court order. I called the only authority of the law available Chief Shipman and told him I wanted to file a trespassing complaint against Conlee. He asked me if I saw him do it. I told him he was the witness that Conlee was going to do it. It was complete violation of my rights. It was a conspiracy.
I again contacted Lee County attorney Mike Short, he advised me that he doesn’t let neighbors file complaints against each other because it never stops. Yet I was charged by the State and City several times on fabricated laws and ordinances, I never even got into the courtroom. Conlee did not even show up, I was told by Montrose Deputy Judd that Conlee was on vacation in Fla. What kind of people are these. What kind of people conspire with intent to cause serious injury to anyone? How is it that I was cited on two different occasions by the State of Iowa for violating fabricated lies. The same excuse was given by the Mayor of Montrose, how is it then that I got cited many times for violating fabricated ordinances and the same issue that was decided by a judge had already been determined in another case.
Well the reality set in after 5 years of being abused by my local government officials, committing criminal acts against me. I had by this time lost me eyesight, unable to read, unable to recognize people, I was terrified. Using chemical weapons with intent to cause serious injury is defined as terrorist acts. These government officials conspired to commit terrorist acts against me.
Mark Conlee had to have my property to ever get his illegal redevelopment recorded on the county plat map and he decided the action to take was to eliminate me. I had two options one was to shoot him dead or flee and seek justice according to the law. I mistakenly chose the latter option.
One other thing I want to mention in regard to Mayor Dinwiddie and his property. Several years ago a woman spoke to the city council about opening a tattoo shop in a building that was available, the council discussed this and they did not think a tattoo shop would represent the city as they wanted it to be represented. It was only a short time later that a different woman spoke to the council about opening a tattoo shop in a building she intended to purchase from Mayor Dinwiddie, the city council was all for this new business in town. What is the difference? Mayor Dinwiddie would receive a personal financial gain just as he did when Conlee purchased the legally nonconforming lot from him.
Attorney Steve Swan conspired with Conlee in violation of his oath to represent his clients best interest
Lee County Attorney Mike Short conspired with Mark Conlee by denying me equal protection of the law, access to the court, and terrorist acts. Conspiracy against rights under color of law.
Lee County Detective conspired with Mark Conlee in misrepresenting his authority to be that of a building official, he was acting without jurisdiction, he defamed my character and knowingly made false statements associating me with illegal drug activity. Conspiracy against rights under color of law.
The most recent act of conspiracy was when Sheriff Stacy Weber advised the city clerk that there was an investigation that initiated City clerk Celeste Cirinna took down the City of Montrose website that contained the minutes of the council meeting and evidence of these officials implicating themselves to suppress the evidence. I have copies of all the meeting minutes.
City clerk Celeste Cirinna committed multiple counts of fraud, conspiracy against rights.
What is not in violation of Federal law in this case is my question?
