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!
