12-26-2019 submitting complaint to FBI Agent Thomas Reinwart one last time.

To: FBI Thomas Reinwart

Thomas,

The only way the US Attorney could not recognize this as a case of conspiracy against right and deprivation of rights under color of law would be due to you not presenting the facts given by the evidence. I am going to give you the facts one more time. I want to speak directly with a rep of the US Attorney for the southern district of Iowa. You have not and can not provide me with any conflicting evidence that my allegations are not correct. Here it is one more time. You must read it in its entirety to understand the unprecedented conspiracy that was committed against me including that without these conflicts of interest  this could have never have happened to this degree of torture.

INTRODUCTION  Complaint alleging Public Corruption, Request for investigation of violation of State and Federal civil rights.

This case concerns my neighbor Mark Conlee’s redevelopment of a legally nonconforming property purchased from the Mayor of my city. He began redeveloping the property by adding a new non compliant garage. He trucked in fill dirt and not only was the massive illegal roofs rotated to drain storm water onto my property he set the grade of the elevated fill dirt to drain down onto my property. The five building permits are illegal, the building official refused to address my concerns in regard to the nuisance drainage the redevelopment caused my property as his duty requires. When this neighbor discovered he could not get the illegal redevelopment recorded on the county plat map, he determined the remedy was to eliminate me. He began unlawfully applying chemicals onto my property. It took very little time before the chemicals caused me a severe skin condition. I verbally told this man not to apply anything to my property, and requested an incident report from the chief of police. Needless to say that I had developed a full body severe skin condition before the 16 months in it took the Chief of police to give me the incident report. This was so severe that it was unbearable to wear clothes. I hired an attorney to sue the City. He was on board with the law at our first meeting. I was questioning him about his knowledge and he passed. The liability was the City. One of the building permits was not signed by the builder and had been forged at a later date  from the original on file. The other permits are illegal based on the fact that this was a legally non conforming property. For those who don’t know there are very stringent rules that apply to redevelopment of such properties. As commented by Mayor Dinwiddie on public record. You’re not allowed to build any structure larger than the existing structures. This guy even went so far as to put in a garden pond that drained onto my property. I am a single middle aged female. I owned my property outright having purchased it in 1995. I opened an upholstery shop that I operated from one of the existing structures on my property. I could not have been happier with my ideal of acquiring my American Dream.

The chemicals continued nonstop. I was surprised when I got served notice that I was being sued by this neighbor for “loss of enjoyment of his property”. It seems that the legally installed privacy curtain that I installed on my side of the 300′ common boundary was too much for him to bear. He could not see out of his windows. Does he even realize that he was looking into his actual side yard? His lot was too narrow to set the oversized structures on. When I spoke to my attorney I was clear that my intent was to sue the City. He advised we would sue both parties adding that the City is where the money was. I know, the liable party is where the money is. I have a long line of paternal parents that held authority titles for a neighboring city. I did not know why he wanted to sue the neighbor to but that is why I hired an attorney. I did not question it. I have never needed an attorney and I am unfamiliar with the court process. The letter of intent my attorney sent the next day did state that if there were no remedy in 10 days he would file an injunction. Upon receiving the letter, the neighbor removed all evidence of an existing berm he had illegally removed. He illegally changed, the frontage of his home to now be the city alley. Apparently, the re-positioning of his home made him believe that my backyard was now his backyard . He added a little roof over the side entrance door to make it look as though his frontage was the street but it clearly was the alley now. This being one of many counts of perjury he committed in the civil court case

I continued to go to council meetings each time a new Mayor was elected. That would be an unprecedented  four Mayors in 5 years. As a citizen being affected by a nuisance drainage as a result of the non-compliant redevelopment, I had the duty to notify the building official that there was a problem. I tried to call him on the telephone, I left messages on his answering machine. He never returned my calls.  My attempts to address the city council were in vain, I had the floor and there would be a distraction caused by the former building official. I was never allowed to speak about my complaint or try to get the proper authority to make him stop applying the chemicals. He would not stop and no law enforcement would file a complaint against him for trespassing.

I believe that if I had been a male, he would never have been brave enough to ignore my request. The Chief of Police did advise me that he did not want to file a complaint against him because he did not want to make him mad. The civil court case he filed against me was dismissed citing my right to enjoy my property. I felt a sense of relief assuming the chemicals would stop based on the citing of my right to enjoy property I could not have been more wrong. This made him mad. He suspiciously is elected to city council for the sole purpose of “getting me back”. The chemicals continue without hesitation. I hear nothing from my attorney in regards to the case against the city even though I email him multiple times. I went to give him a payment and mentioned that the Mayor actually took my side in regards to the privacy curtain I installed. He advised me that the reason the Mayor took my side was that he had received a letter from my attorney. My attorney had lied to me all this time. He never filed the complaint against the city. He never did anything on my behalf. He did suppress evidence on behalf of this neighbor. This guy and the police chief physically altered Railroad ties I had placed along the common boundary to try to divert the excessive storm water from my property to the city drainage ditch. This was a direct act in contempt of court. There was no reason but to prove to me that he was not going to abide by the court of anyone else’s ruling. He had to have my property.

The county attorney advised me that he would violate his duty to prosecute all criminal offenses and he would decide who is prosecuted in his county. He then proceeds to file criminal charges against me several times for fabricated laws. Laws that do not exist, but I cannot get one for criminal trespassing against this neighbor whose intent is clearly to cause me serious injury or death. I suffered severe pain for five long years. I knew I was dying. Only when a former city police chief now moved on to the Sheriff Dept stopped by my home to advise me that this neighbor had no intention to cease and desist with the chemicals did I know I had no option. I had either to shoot this neighbor dead or sell my home business and property for enough funds to repay the debt I owed my friend for supplying the funds for my basic living expenses over the 5-year period and pay for my final expenses. I knew I was dying.

I could not leave this earth without repaying my friends well over $10,000 dollars. My condition only increased, I  could not bear to have anything touch my skin the pain never stopped. It was 24/7, I had lost my eyesight by this time also as a result of the medical treatment administered to offer my skin some relief. This neighbor has more than less of the traits to determine a psychopath according to Hare’s list. I now know the reason the police chief or anyone else for that matter did not want to make this guy mad. However, for me to be the sacrificial lamb and live to tell about it, no way. It is the duty of law enforcement to protect the rights of the people in these United States. They take an oath to do just that, the criminal acts committed by this enterprise of local government officials is unbelievable. However, the evidence does not lie.

I did survive and I am now seeking compensation for my damages. According to the Storm water management handbook, the courts see cities as having deep pockets in not complying to the State building code and drainage laws. Now I am looking for law enforcement and prosecuting attorney  that are committed to protecting the rights of their fellow citizens. https://poisonedbymyneighborfromhell.com What is truly unbelievable this group of thugs being afraid to do their duty to the degree that they would rather commit serious criminal acts against a woman than make this man mad. I am concerned for the entire community. This man showed no empathy when he saw my skin. His intent was to acquire my property at any cost. Something’s not right here. I have known these individuals most of my life and I have never witnessed or heard rumors of any of them committing criminal offenses on someone else’s behalf. Mayor Dinwiddie clearly had a personal financial gain when he sold this otherwise worthless piece of property to Mark Conlee.  Didn’t Mark Conlee know that redeveloping a nonconforming property is not an option? the city building official intentionally allowed the illegal construction, and avoided his duty to address my concerns. Lee County Attorney Michael Short recently retired and I believe the shuffling of the new County Attorney is finished so I believe it should be possible to hold those who have committed criminal acts be prosecuted and I should be compensated for being the victim of the criminal acts that were committed against me. As it stands, I am forced to watch these individuals living large from the guts of my property. I sit here with chronic health problems in a small section 8 rental house that is not satisfactory for my lifestyle or sewing machine. I do not know how long I can contain my patience. It has been an extended period. The chances I will be diagnosed with cancer are overwhelmingly high percent based on the studies on glyphosate. These people have new homes and garage no worries. My achieved American dream has been ripped (taken) from my hands causing injury with no compensation, no acknowledgement much less an apology. In fact if you asked anyone of the participating authorities they would most likely just respond that I am “crazy”. That information was given to the Mayor by a family member who has mental issues with narcissistic personality disorder.  If you read my webpage, https://poisonedbymyneighborfromhell.com  you will find much more evidence supporting this story and the others who conspired to deprive me of my rights under color of law. There just is no other way to view or excuse these events. I will not be denied my right to private property no matter who or when justice is served. In the end I will be compensated for the suffering I have been made to endure at the hands of these self serving government impostors. They need to be held accountable by the Justice Dept. They need never to hold another government position as they have proven capable of serving the ultimate sacrifice to those who they have taken an oath to protect.  It makes no difference that this is only one individual that has harmed their duty to protect the rights of all equally. If I had not fled I would have paid the ultimate price for simply having owned the property a psychopath purchased from the Mayor.

This cannot be allowed in the USA under any circumstances. I certainly do not intend to be the first and only citizen who has been subject to such brutal criminal acts by my local government officials. There is no more time for excuses this needs to be addressed. These crimes are in violation of the Constitution of the State of Iowa and The Constitution of the United States of America. I am requesting an investigation into the evidence that has never been reviewed by any authority.

Sincerely,

Melody Boatner

Keokuk, Ia.

Unprecedented, complex,  HARD COPY EVIDENCE PROVING MY ALLEGATIONS OF CONSPIRACY AGAINST RIGHTS. DEPRIVATION OF RIGHTS UNDER COLOR OF LAW, GROSS NEGLIGENCE, USING CHEMICALS AS A WEAPON WITH INTENT TO CAUSE SERIOUS HARM OR DEATH, DOCUMENT FRAUD, MAIL FRAUD, PERJURY, MAKING FALSE POLICE REPORTS, CONFLICT OF INTEREST, TAKING OF PROPERTY WITHOUT JUST COMPENSATION, CRIMINAL TRESPASS, CONTEMPT OF COURT, DEFAMATION OF CHARACTER, COLLUSION, INTENT TO CAUSE PHYSICAL AND EMOTIONAL STRESS. ABUSE OF POWER, OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE. NONCOMPLIANT PROPERTY REDEVELOPMENT, NUISANCE DRAINAGE COMPLAINT, KNOWINGLY MAKING FALSE STATEMENTS,. FAILURE TO KEEP FROM HARM,

Original property layout

This building permit is fraudulent as it is impossible to construct this building from pouring a slab to complete finish in the timeline of 5 days. It is incomplete as there is no fill dirt amount, setbacks or other information required by the State of Iowa. This document is folded for scanning purposes. Boatner was initially informed that this structure was non compliant because the owner intended to build a living quarters in the second story.

After a suspicious fire supposedly destroyed the existing double-wide mobile home this building permit was issued. Fraudulent building permit issued by City of Montrose, Ia. Not signed by the builder, no fee charged, no fill dirt or setbacks recorded. This permit is also folded for purposes of scanning.

When the city building official refused to address my concerns about a nuisance drainage issue according to city ordinance I contacted Lee County extension agent for an opinion. He wrote a letter to me and a copy to Mayor Dinwiddie including a copy of the Iowa drainage laws. There was no response.

City clerk Cirinna altered the fee charged on this original permit to conflict with Lee County Ext. Agents observation.

Water standing in yard

Water standing in the yard. Note upper right hand corner retaining fill dirt on neighbors new garage.

Ground in crawl space saturated with groundwater caused by increased stormwater runoff from neighbors new redevelopment and illegal removal of existing berm foundation washed out. This side of the house had never received water like this because of the existing berm that Conlee removed unlawfully.

According to expert Bob Dodds anything existing for more that 10 years is considered existing, Conlee illegally removed the berm that had been put in place in 1972 for the purpose of protecting Boatners home from stormwater runoff.

Neighbor’s allegation that my nuisance drainage was caused by the city street is false. This photo shows crawl space toward the street is dry. Dark area of soil is saturated from side of home that faces neighbors property

Common boundary supporting neighbors applied chemicals to my property (on the right side of photo). This boundary is 300’ long and there was never any action by law enforcement to stop the application of chemicals to my property.I began to report the unlawful acts in late April 2005 and nothing was ever done on my behalf until I was forced to escape from them in Aug 2010.

Conlee’s opinion was that a ditch on his property would be unsightly. Boatner believes Conlee has a severe personality disorder. He thinks he is above the law. He committed perjury in his testimony under oath in Conlee vs Boatner as he knew full well Boatner wanted a ditch dug because the stormwater diverted to. The wire fence was installed by Conlee to keep Boatner from digging a ditch down the common boundary.  If the building codes were recognized publicly, Conlee would have never been allowed to expand the size of the new structure larger than the existing structures. The Mayor and building official were well aware of the legality of Conlee’s redevelopment that is why they refused to address her grievances. They violated their oath of office. They conspired with Conlee to allow Boatner’s State and Federal RIght to be violated. They conspired with Conlee to use chemicals as a weapon to eliminate her from her property.

I did not notice the chemicals until the the grass was getting green in the spring as soon as  I did notice them I knew what was causing the “rash” on my shins

I advised neighbor not to apply anything to my property and requested an incident report from Police Chief Brent Shipman

Spreading

Spreading, Condition continues to get worse. No action from law enforcement to protect e from harm or my Constitutionally protected private property rights

Poison continued to be applied to my property on a routine basis. By this time the “rash had developed into a full body severe skin condition that caused severe pain to the degree it was unbearable to wear clothes. Poison continues to be applied to my property without my permission against my control

I can think of no more brutal way to eliminate a neighbor. In the background is the Steel Roofing I had just purchased to put on my home. It was in no way my decision to move. This was heavy 1/4 “ j channel steel.

I had no authority to stop this neighbor from unlawfully applying chemicals to my property except to take up arms.

law enforcement has the duty to provide protection of my private property rights.

This felt more like a chemical burn. Boatner  was completely unable to function. This was an intentional brutal attack that have had serious lifelong effects

.

16 Months later I received this report that is completely inadequate from Police chief Brent Shipman. I refused this and told him I wanted one that was more specific.

9-16-2006  intentional untimely incident report requested by Boatner 16 months after the discovery of chemicals on her property. By this time it was too late the condition had become chronic. There was never any intervention from local city and county law enforcement to protect my right to private property. Police chief Shipman advised me that he did not want to make this neighbor mad. Lee County attorney dismissed the photo evidence and advised me that “Mark Conlee said” that he only applied the chemicals to his side of the fence.

Letter of Intent From Boatner attorney to Conlee

Boatner hired an attorney very early in this case, to file a complaint against the city of Montrose early on. Conlee commits perjury in the civil case Conlee vs Boatner also.  Steve Swan knowingly lied to her. He reassured her that he had filed the complaint against the City of Montrose. Boatner believes that Attorney Swan was so eager to take her case that it leaves to question whether arrangements were premeditated by Conlee and Swan for him to do just what he did, nothing except suppress evidence that is right here in this file. Suppress testimony of witnesses that he claimed were experts in their own right, but then did not ask a question to any of them. This case followed no standard procedures. What began as a simple nuisance drainage issue that could have been easily remedied. Turned into a criminal conspiracy all because one of the good old boys wasn’t smart enough to pay attention to step on in land developing. Site layout and drainage. His nonconforming lot he should have known has stringent laws in development. Mayor Dinwiddie, the seller of the property, acknowledges this in the public record.

How many cases are there in which the plaintiff offers the defendant an out of court settlement? Well in this case Conlee offered Boatner two out of court settlements. Both of which are ridiculous. Mark Conlee is a psychopath. Nobody in their right mind intentionally hurts another human being. In this case he was asked to stop applying the chemicals. He refused to stop. The reason he continued was for the purpose of eliminating Boatner.

First offer to settle out of court. Plaintiff’s offer to defendant is admission to guilt. Boatner’s attorney suppressed this from the court.

2nd offer to settle out of court. This was suppressed from the court. This offer is completely ridiculous being Boatner is not responsible for the new developments stormwater drainage.

This is the privacy curtain Boatner installed, it was within her legal right as there was no fence ordinance at that time. You can also see Conlee’s property is graded down toward her property. The existing berm prior to the redevelopment was located on the left hand side of this photo, Conlee has put some bricks where the berm used to be. You can see the Conlee’s new home has the roof rotated from the original home to divert stormwater directly onto Boatner’s property. Prior to the removal of the berm a heavy rain would develop a small pond in this front yard of the Conlee’s property. Boatner’s property received no stormwater runoff from the Conlee property.  The judge erred in what he stated Conlee’s witness actually stated in her testimony. She actually stated the her (Boatner’s) property NEVER received stormwater runoff from the Conlee property. Boatner’s attorney recognized this as a fact in an email exchange. No competent attorney could be so incompetent not to raise issue with what he acknowledges in an email to Boatner when she contacted him after receiving the decision. The attorney’s oath swears that he will represent the best interests of his client. Boatner’s attorney violated that oath. His action support intent to cause Boatner harm.

Finding of Fact

Finding of Fact,  The dismissal of Conlee’s this case only made Conlee more aggressive toward Boatner. Conlee decided he would get elected to council member. The timeline for announcing candidacy was not within the guidelines. We never got the decision on the civil case until the end of Oct.  I believe you must have your candidate announced before that timeline. Conlee went to the city hall every afternoon when he got off work for a week, and read the city codes before he announced. Conlee‘s personality true to itself, he gave her a thumbs up as she drove by one afternoon, indicating  that he had made a deal for his position and was going to be elected to city council. His intent as a council member was to force me to take that curtain down. He intended to harass me financially. Clerk Cirinna obediently began to take orders from Conlee. She fabricated an ordinance specially for Boatner .

The fraudulent ordinance indicated Boatner had to take the curtain down. Boatner pleaded not guilty. The case was dismissed by the City Attorney. There was not a word spoken to the court about the case. Correction the paragraph below the red line is fraudulent.

Footnote of the court order the judge noted the issues in this case had been remedied by a previous court of law.  These types of crimes continued along with the chemicals exposure until 2010. At that time Boatner’s condition had become dire. She also lost her eyesight. She was helpless to defend herself or her property. Conlee’s network of authorities did not waver in their malicious fight to acquire Boatner’s property.

Finding of Fact

The court ruling, citing Boatner’s right to enjoy her property meant she has been returned complete control of her own property.

According to Lee County Deputy David Hunold, who came to her home investigating a second of the same fabricated law complaint against her by Lee County Attorney Mike Short on behalf of  Mark Conlee.

The first complaint stated that Boatner had driven by Conlee’s home and given him the middle finger. According to Officer Hunold the Judge did not specify Mark Conlee was not allowed to continue to apply chemicals to her property. He could continue and he did continue to apply chemicals to her property. She had just been to court over this same allegation that she had given him the finger and it was dismissed. She never even got to see the judge. Mark Conlee in contempt of court did not show up for court.  He was on vacation in Florida. The newest Police Chief Karl Judd advised Boatner that he knew Conlee was on vacation and would be a no show prior to the court date.

These frivolous charges were made against Boatner by Lee County attorney Mike Short in State of Iowa vs Boatner. This 2nd complaint was altered from the original simply by adding the words “he is tired of this happening all the time” therefore bumping it up to a harassment charge. Someone should have advised the County Attorney that there is no law against giving anyone the finger. In Boatner’s opinion the judge would have commented that Conlee deserved for her to give him the finger. Boatner was still being denied a trespassing complaint against Conlee. As Officer Hunold was leaving her home she told him wait, she wants to file a complaint for trespassing, having just shown him the court document. Officer Hunold advised her that he was only there to investigate a complaint from Conlee that she had given him the finger. Lee County Attorney Mike Short had sent him in case there was a conflict of interest involved. There definitely was a conflict of interest in this case. This case reeks of  violations of Federal law.

May 23 2008   Mark Conlee assisted by Police Chief Shipman violates the civil court order. Somehow Chief Shipman feels he has the authority to overrule a court order and authorize Conlee  to alter the railroad ties Boatner had placed on her property along the common boundary to divert the excessive amount of stormwater runoff. Boatner’s property now receives 90% of Conlee’s stormwater runoff after the illegal property redevelopment. He pulled the plastic edging out that Boatner had installed, he pushed the ties out of alignment. You can see a broken staub in the foreground of this photo. The staub’s were broken off at ground level all the way down the row of ties. Boatner was putting myself in danger by being out in her yard to place these ties and edging as there were chemicals that had been applied to the entire common boundary. Boatner had no chance to secure her private property rights. Her only option other than to flee would be to shoot this man dead.

This photo is easier to indicate the broken staub’s and edging that was pulled from the ground and laying on top of the soil. This action was don’t in contempt of the civil court order citing Boatner’s  right to enjoy my own property. He never did this to the upper half of the property. He did this in the middle of the night. Earlier that day Conlee along the the Police Chief approached Boatner and informed her that he was going to move her railroad ties. Boatner went into her house and returned with a single shot pellet gun. Boatner stood guard and defended her property till after dark. Boatner is human. She was still trying to operate her upholstery shop business and did goe in the house to try and get some rest. The next morning this is what took place on her property. Several weeks later Conlee calls a false report into the police stating he heard shots fired from Boatner’s property. The purpose for the false police report was to know if Boatner had weapons. It is a violation of the law to make false police reports. There is no law that applies to Mark Conlee. You can see the amount of fill dirt that was brought into Conlee’s property by the retaining timbers on the left of the photo. He committed perjury in the civil case denying the amount of fill dirt he had trucked in.  As you can see Boatner’s property has mature trees and his property has nothing that would prevent him from installing a drain pipe to divert his stormwater to the city drainage ditch as required by State drainage law.

This is the finished illegal property redevelopment of Boatner’s neighbor. Completely not in compliance with state building code, Conlee went to get this recorded on the County plat map and apparently it was denied. This is the reason that he determined the remedy was to eliminate Boatner. It took 5 years of severe suffering, emotional and physical before she had no choice but to flee. The only other option she had was to shoot this man dead or flee. This was her home, business and property. It was apparent that Boatner or Conlee was going to die if she stayed, Due to the intentional negligence and conspiracy against her rights by local government officials She is still being denied justice. These government officials have been allowed to commit serious criminal offenses. why? Boatner will not go away, No way no how. Her assets were in her property, Her property has been forcibly taken. Her credit rating before Conlee came to the worthless lot next door was 760. Two trips to the ER in the first few days of this attack wiped her credit out. Then as a council member Conlee uses his position in an attempt to cause her more financial harm. By involving the City clerk, who has no problem forging documents of file or fabricating city ordinances. There is a slough of things the clerk performed that were criminal and ethical violations. Anyone who looks at this evidence sees that.

There is no excuse for the treatment of a human being as brutal as this attack waged against me. Boatner has EPA results and much more evidence that she has the right to submit. To date no authority has given her the opportunity.

Does anyone recognize a conspiracy against rights? Deprivation of Rights under color of Law? These are violations of Federal law.

Anyone who does not visually recognize that these oversized structures set sideways on the Conlee property has changed the frontage of his property to be the city alley is not qualified to oversee the first step taken when redeveloping begins, site layout and stormwater drainage.

Anyone who does not visually see the significant increased stormwater being diverted onto Boatner’s property is not qualified to oversee new property redevelopment.

Anyone who does not recognize the violations against Boatner’s State and Federal Rights please explain how Boatner’s rights have not been violated.

Boatner wants to know the process needed to redress grievances. Her attempt to get any answers from anyone has been in non productive. She is really been put through hell by the chronic skin condition and the loss of her eyesight.

Had she invoked her second amendment rights where would she be now? Would she have been found not guilty of murder and at home enjoy life as it was prior to Conlee purchasing the adjoining lot from Mayor Dinwiddie? Would she be in prison for murder. We will never know. We know that she is still burdened by the events that took place in violation of Federal law from Spring of 2005- Fall of 1010.  Her ability to enjoy life is blocked by the crimes committed against her by an entire local government subdivision. This cannot be dismissed as the basic fundamental rights are what we as Americans base our freedoms on.

Conlee vs Boatner Eqeq004300 This court record is full of evidence of perjury committed by Mark Conlee and his attorney Greg Johnson. Conspiracy against rights committed by Mark Conlee, Greg Johnson and Steven Swan ESQ. Still the court ruled in my favor even with the evidence suppressed from the court.

About Sheriff Weber

Sheriff Stacy Weber conspired with city clerk to hide evidence in April 2017 Sheriff Weber has an existing conflict of interest with the Conlee’s that will not allow the written law to apply in any situation involving this situation. Sheriff Weber spoke to SA Jeff Huber. Any information given to SA Huber could not have been based on fact, Weber was not privy to any of the facts of this case. Without a reasonable comparison of that information with the facts in the case there can be no reasonable conclusion of this case.

Weber picks Conlee as No. 2

By JEFF HUNT dgceditor@dailygate.com

Dec 23, 2016

MONTROSE – Lee County Sheriff-elect Stacy Weber has appointed a new chief deputy to serve as his second in command. He promoted Will Conlee, a patrol deputy, to help him lead the department. When Weber was campaigning for office, he said if elected there would be changes. Weber said it wasn’t just Conlee’s experience that made him inviting for the job, but it didn’t hurt. “He started with the city of Fort Madison in 1998,” Weber said. “He moved to the sheriff’s office in 2000.”Weber summed up the main reason he wants Conlee in one word.“Leadership,” Weber said. “This was a decision that was easy for me because with the people who are working here, I observed on a daily basis who has leadership skills.” Weber called Conlee a good man and said it is a plus that he was from the area and that his father was in law enforcement. “His father is one of the reasons I am in law enforcement today,” Weber said. “Will comes from good stock. He does the right thing when nobody’s looking.” Weber said the chief deputy will act as the sheriff when the sheriff is not present. He said in the past there were two parts to being the sheriff. One part is the man who comes in and runs the office, and the other is the man who goes out and meets the community. When Weber is out of the office he knows someone will be in charge. Conlee comes from Montrose. He received his law enforcement training at Cedar Rapids Police Academy.

I am hoping that someone with authority gets word of my situation.

I am not or have never been an aggressive person. Well maybe a little 25 years ago when I had a nip or two. But I am the type if I don’t agree with someone I keep it to myself. I am not confrontational. I will take the short end of the stick every time to keep the peace. This case is more than I can handle. I promised myself I will not be the only victim of this brutal attack. I will invoke my 2nd amendment right. I don’t know when. I just know that I cannot allow for my dad to have served on a Destroyer in the South Pacific taking on bombs and kamikaze pilots thinking he was fighting for the freedoms of his countrymen.

Ironically he spent his career working as the Street Commissioner of a larger neighboring town. His father’s career was also working for the neighboring city. I know the duties and responsibilities a city MUST provide its residents. One of them being nobody has the right to do anything to another persons property. Trespass enforce would have solved this problem from the get go. This was a conspiracy against my rights. Deprivation of Rights under color of law and torture from chemical warfare.

Constitutional Rights, Bullying , Terrorist Acts, Discrimination

    I am an innocent victim of your War on Drugs. Share this with your colleagues and your assistant in your local office who frankly couldn’t have care less that I was being poisoned by toxic chemical applied to my property for the sole purpose to cause me physical harm not excluding death if that were the consequences. 

     I will never forget her comment after I repeatedly called desperate for intervention, “something will come along”. Two years later and on my deathbed she, Penny, as I recall was her name, assured me “something will come along”. 

     I  am victim of crimes against humanity in the State of Iowa, in the County of Lee. I am angry. I want you to demand some answers from these local Government authorities to the questions I have been oppressed from asking.

    You have made it clear that you are Federal, well sir the State is under the Federal authorities. In fact I was advised by the State Attorney General that they could only get involved if a case was referred to them by the County Attorney. the following is just a minute accounting of the brutality I suffered. There are numerous participants that I have not mentioned. The constant use of massive amounts toxic chemicals as a weapon is nothing short of attempted murder. 

     I understand you may not like my tone in this letter, let me assure you it is not my character to assert a tone of anything but pleasant. You must understand that I believe I am the only person in this Nation that has endured this degree of brutality and disregard of the law by those who I pay to enforce  the law.

    I am sending the following brief to all media and and sources available. Not one single person beside myself and this neighbor mentioned in the following letter know the whole story and events that took place. But there are many witnesses and documents that together can not be disputed as to the credibility that what seems to unbelievable to be true these people treatment of me was pure evil. Sir, I am not a liar, I am not a cheat, and I am not a thieve. I will take a lie detector test any time. They have defamed my character to the highest degree, when asked about the situation they would avoid any discussion by saying “oh she’s crazy”.

 

To Whom it may Concern,

I have literally been oppressed from presenting the facts, getting any answers to my questions pertaining to the indisputable evidence proving criminal acts, ethical violations of several high ranking City and County officials. I deserve answers. I deserve an investigation.

I was victimized by these individuals for 5 years. I am innocent of any crime, There is no evidence that I was ever involved in any illegal drug activity. The evidence, proves the highest ranking County officer knowingly made false allegations over the police radio associating me a family member who has prior convictions. I can prove this officer was well aware that his statement was false by information on a copy of a search warrant that I am in possession of. I have had no personal association with this family member since 1992. This is a well known fact by many people.

I and other neighbors can testify that I was under surveillance (their term) by this County officer 24/7. The hours he spent watching me knowing that there was no just cause most likely cost the taxpayers a considerable amount of money. His behavior is defined as stalking. I found it kind of humorous early on simply because he and I both knew everything he was saying about me was completely false, he was taking the facts completely out of context as the documents prove. The last 12 months his behavior frightened me, he became more irate, and his lies more extreme in content. Then at age 42 he suddenly retired. I have heard that there were undisclosed ethical circumstances for his sudden early retirement. Many citizens find retiring suddenly at 42 unusual and believe the facts behind this should be disclosed but the County Attorney will do whatever it takes to protect his highest ranking officer, personal friend and closest working colleague for over 2 decades. 

Why am I under surveillance by a County officer when I live in the City? I and other neighbors can testify that I was under surveillance (their term) by this County officer 24/7. The hours he spent watching me knowing that there was no just cause most likely cost the taxpayers a considerable amount of money. His behavior is defined as stalking. I found it kind of humorous early on simply because he and I both knew everything he was saying about me was completely false, he was taking the facts completely out of context as the documents prove. The last 12 months his behavior frightened me, he became more irate, and his lies more extreme in content. Then at age 42 he suddenly retired. I have heard that there were undisclosed ethical circumstances for his sudden early retirement. Many citizens find retiring suddenly at 42 unusual and believe the facts behind this should be disclosed but the County Attorney will do whatever it takes to protect his highest ranking officer, personal friend and closest working colleague for over 2 decades. 

An investigation into the County Attorney’s history will show that he has repeatedly used his position to provide protection from prosecution for family members who have repeated meth, illegal drug and other criminal offenses. The general public is not aware this is repeated behavior by the CA ignoring the rule of conflict of interest because some of the individuals are blood and carry the same last name, other immediate family last names differ because they are step- relatives. The County Attorney stated in an email to me that he sent an officer to investigate. None of my witnesses were ever interviewed. The officer that he sent to my house stated that he was only at my house to question me about giving the neighbor the finger. 

The motive according to the evidence I have of this high ranking officer who initiated verbal attack on me was to defame my character, other City and County law enforcement officers, along with City officials and the general public who did not know me personally to disregard general procedure and duty of appointed officials to address and answer a citizen complaint? My initial concern was a drainage issue that devalues my property value $8,000 and damaged my foundation when this guy redeveloped his property. 

Did I mention there was a suspicious fire that destroyed the existing home? Did I mention the Chief of Police felt it was suspicious and felt and investigation was needed. Did I mention the Chief was told an investigation was not necessary, that they (the fire dept) had taken care of it. Did I mention out of umpteen firemen on the dept. only 4 were on the seen at this fire. There are always more than needed at any fire. Did I mention that the firemen that were present were the Mayor (seller of the property), the building inspector(who refused to speak to me about the drainage issue) and the new neighbor(purchaser of property, brother of the County cop with the apparent vendetta against me) and Jake, junior member of the dept. and son of the building inspector. It was a conversation of the facts of events several days after the fire that both Jake and I realized we without a doubt had witnessed an arson. Jake’s dad and the other 2 had always presented himself as such fine servants of the community. 

Did I mention the neighbor is also on the City Council?They have committed what is probably the most severely punishable crime ever happen in this town of 900. Jake testimony which I will not disclose is by far the most compelling evidence of all. Every neighbor on the block approached stated they felt it was intentional. I did not question any of them as to the reason behind their thoughts. 

According to witnesses (some being police officers that do know me personally) This County officer verbally assured City officials, City police officers, and one other County deputy for sure that I was going to get busted for drugs. What type of drugs I do not know. I assume pot. I stated that I knew for sure one other County deputy was convinced I was going down. This officer and I have a mutual friend. One afternoon after the friend left my house after a visit this deputy pulled him over and stated “that house you just left is going to get busted”. I thought the officer had mistaken my house for a house on the next block that did get busted. I knew for a fact that I wasn’t doing anything to get busted for. 

 I am not a writer, I have a GED. I quit high school in 11th grade because I was terrified that speech was a require class and I get so nervous that I literally can not stand up and talk to people I don’t know. My cheek starts twitching, that’s just me. Maybe because I was bullied by big brother, I don’t know.

 I will take the short end of the stick every time to avoid and confrontation. I bought my property in 1995, raised a son to be a fine productive member of society with no financial or emotional support from his father whom I was married to for 13 years. Never questioned my ability to use my talent to pay my bills and support myself and acquire the American Dream. 

 I had much more success in doing so depending on myself than with a husband. I rebuilt the existing home on my property and rebuilt the garage into an upholstery shop. I had an outstanding reputation for the quality of my work and was never without a job on deck. I am self taught at many skilled crafts. I chose upholstery so I could work from home as my son a had rare serious health condition from the age of 6 through young adulthood. 

 I am writing this in part due to the media attention to bullying that has been so relevant lately. I am well educated as to the duties and responsibilities of Cities to the citizens and the procedures that citizens are to follow when an issues arises pertaining to new construction and property redevelopment. My Grandfather and father both were employed by a neighboring City. My father’s position was titled Street Commissioner, this was in the 60-80s. This was also the time when States, Counties and Cities adopted the uniform building codes. 

 These codes are now international and have been for quite some time. One of the main purposes for these codes is to minimize the number of lawsuits filed by neighbor against neighbor. The position of Street Commissioner has now been phased out and larger Cities use City Planners to oversee property issues. Smaller Cities as mine appoint a council member to be building administrator. The administrator has specific duties to ensure building codes are compiled to by the builder the first step is for the administrator to issue a permit. The builder signs the permit prior to any work to be done.   The builder notifies the administrator when t the project is complete. The administrator goes to the property and physically measures, checks a list of things to ensure the builders has complied to all regulations. If the project is compliant the administrator signs the permit. If the project is not compliant the administrator does not approve (sign) the permit until the property is brought up to code. The administrator signs the permit and then issues a certificate of occupancy. Residents are then free to move in an live happily ever after…..

  • Did I mention that the permit for the neighbors property was signed by the administrator but not the builder? 
  • Did I mention that the neighbor admitted to applying chemicals to my property without my knowledge? 
  • Did I mention the City applied chemicals to my property without my knowledge or without a licensed applicator to do so? Or without following the EPA rules for posting and every other rule regulated by the EPA? 
  • Did I mention that I developed a severe skin condition from the chemicals? 
  • Did I mention that when I requested both parties not to apply anything to my property they became more aggressive? 
  • Did I mention that my entire body was raw, I could not bare to wear clothes for the entire 2 years this continued on a weekly basis? 
  • Did I mention that I was so sick that the pastor of the church went to City hall to make a payment on my water bill and the clerk told her that the payment had to come out of my pocket? 

 A civil court judge told him that I had the right to enjoy my property. He physically enter my property accompanied by a cop and moved some landscape timbers I had place in a desperate attempt to kept the chemicals off me. The County Attorney told me he frankly didn’t care.

I am now physically disabled. I live in a 12′ camper that I borrowed from a friend behind my sons house. My credit score when this began was 760. Now I can’t even open a checking account to deposit my $660 p/m SSI disability check. I have a 3 year backlog of work from when I first got sick. 

Oh yeah this neighbor sued me in civil court for loss of enjoyment of his property. Then he  offered me 2 ridiculous out of court settlements. To sum it up. I am a victim of bullying. I have been tortured and the condition is chronic.

I need some answers to why this happened. I have information that the public has the right to know about the Lee County Task Force, County Attorney, Retired Officer, Psychopath Council member and criminal city officials. Are you or your colleagues scared to ask questions or are you reporters of the news?

 

sincerely,

Montrose and Lee County, Iowa unprecedented case of #public corruption, #nepotism and #kleptocracy

18 U.S. Code CHAPTER 11B—CHEMICAL WEAPONS. FBI SA THOMAS REINWART DETERMINED NO VIOLATION OF FEDERAL LAW HAS OCCURRED

The fact that FBI Agent Reinwart, refused to review my evidence that supports without a doubt my allegations leaves his decision irrelevant. It does not take a graduate of the academy to know that an investigation requires reviewing evidence from both sides of a case. In an email he sent me he admits that he made his decision based on what I verbally told him and what the County Sheriff told a third party. I even submitted evidence that the Sheriff had a conflict of interest with the opposing party. He made his decision based on false statements given by the sheriff. I asked Reinwart to share with me the information the Sheriff had made in his statements. Reinwart refused. Reinwart was supposed to be investigation this case on my behalf. He could not share the false information given by the Sheriff because I have hard copy evidence that would prove the Sheriff was lying. The sheriff knows no facts about this case. Any information he has is based on lies made by the Conlee’s. I can prove multiple counts of perjury made by Conlee in the civil case. AUSA Kevin VanderSchel was lying when he advised me that he had the authority to violate a civil court order. When we have Federal authorities who have no regard to the oath they took to uphold the Constitution its time for the citizens to unite and remove them from their positions. Dirty Rotten Bastards. I have a purpose to speak to the Inspector General. To expose one corrupt government official is small potatoes. I have an entire group of self serving government impostors that need removed from their positions. Hearsay is not evidence. Dirty Rotten Bastards. Private property is never to be taken without just compensation. Reinwart did not possess the knowledge of  any Federal law, who is responsible for putting this incompetent individual in his position? He has shown me that he is not qualified to investigate any case regarding Federal law!
