11-20-2019 Evidence supporting US Attorney Kevin VanderSchel has conflict of interest with Lee County Sheriff Stacy Weber. You do not have the authority to violate State and Federal rights of citizens. Your duty is to serve me!

 

DAVENPORT, Ia (WGEM) – UPDATE: The Department of Justice announced Wednesday afternoon that a ninth individual has been arrested as a result of at multi-year joint federal and state investigation of a large drug trafficking organization.

First Assistant United States Attorney Kevin VanderSchel stated that Alphonso Edmond, Jr was arrested in Burlington, Iowa Wednesday morning, bringing the total number of arrests in the investigation to nine.

Earlier on Wednesday, the DOJ reported that eight people were facing federal criminal charges as part of a multi-year joint federal and state investigation of a large drug trafficking organization that operated out of Burlington, Iowa.

VanderSchel stated that five of the individuals were arrested Tuesday. Those arrested will make their initial appearance in federal court at the United States Courthouse, in Davenport, on Wednesday.

The charges were announced by Marc Krickbaum, United States Attorney for the Southern District of Iowa; Kristi Johnson, Special Agent-in-Charge of the Omaha Field Office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation; Lisa Schaefer, Des Moines County, Iowa, Attorney; Dennis Kramer, Chief of Police of the Burlington, Iowa, Police Department; and Robert Copley, Chief of Police of the Quincy, Illinois, Police Department.

VanderSchel stated that the charges stem from a long-term investigation conducted by numerous federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies including the Federal Bureau of Investigation; Southeast Iowa Narcotics Task force; Burlington, Iowa, Police Department; Des Moines County, Iowa, Sheriff’s Office; West Central Illinois Task force; Quincy, Illinois, Police Department; Drug Enforcement Administration; Iowa Division of Narcotics Enforcement; Henry County, Iowa, Sheriff’s Office; Mt. Pleasant, Iowa, Police Department; West Burlington, Iowa, Police Department; Keokuk, Iowa, Police Department; Ft. Madison, Iowa, Police Department; Lee County, Iowa, Sheriff’s Office; Iowa City, Iowa, Police Department; Johnson County, Iowa, Sheriff’s Office; North Liberty, Iowa, Police Department; Coralville, Iowa, Police Department; Muscatine County, Iowa, Sheriff’s Office; Louisa County, Iowa, Sheriff’s Office; Washington County, Iowa, Sheriff’s Office; Bettendorf, Iowa, Police Department; Illinois State Police; Monmouth, Illinois, Police Department; Macomb, Illinois, Police Department; Galesburg, Illinois, Police Department; Adams County, Illinois, Sheriff’s Office; and Fulton County, Illinois, Sheriff’s Office.

VanderSchel reported that eight individuals were charged by complaint in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Iowa, stemming from a years-long investigation of this drug trafficking organization.

Those arrested include Kendrick Page, Breon Raquon Armstrong, Lamar Harris, Tristan Davis, and James Lewis Miles, Jr.

The identities of those who have not yet been arrested remain sealed at this time. Additionally, search warrants were executed at multiple locations in the Southern District of Iowa, Northern District of Illinois, and Northern District of Texas. Others involved in this drug trafficking organization have previously been arrested in both the Southern District of Iowa and the Central District of Illinois.

VanderSchel reported that the charges carry maximum penalties of between 40 years and life imprisonment. If convicted, the Court must impose reasonable sentences under federal sentencing statutes and the advisory U.S. Sentencing Guidelines. There is no parole in the federal court system.

The public is reminded that charges contain only accusations and are not evidence of guilt. The defendants are presumed innocent and entitled to a fair trial at which the government has the burden of proving guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. These cases are part of Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN), a program bringing together all levels of law enforcement and the communities they serve to reduce violent crime and make our neighborhoods safer for everyone. The Department of Justice reinvigorated PSN in 2017 as part of the Department’s renewed focus on targeting violent criminals, directing all U.S. Attorney’s Offices to work in partnership with federal, state, local, and tribal law enforcement and the local community to develop effective, locally-based strategies to reduce violent crime.

 

Wanted personal injury lawyer, for case of Government Negligence, Willful Misconduct, Fraud and Harassment resulting in serious injury.

In the Heartland-Government lead Terrorist Group used chemical weapon to eliminate US civilian. The use of chemicals in the manner which they were used in the attack against me was ongoing terrorist acts. Be it written law or not. I know I personally felt terrified. I continue to feel unsafe. I actually believed at the time they would burn my house down with me in it. The Feds have been as much as co conspirators. An agent used tax payers money to travel to my location, after 14 months, his intent was to review my hard copy evidence. He arrived announcing he had no intention of reviewing any evidence. He asked that I tell him the story. I received a letter two hours after he left from Washington DC headquarters advising that the agent had determined no violation of Federal law had occurred. The point is that two hours is not time to get a letter from the departure to the local hub of the post office. This agent clearly had predetermined his decision without any evidence provided by me. I received a letter from him saying as much two weeks later. It does not take a law degree to know that private property rights are Federally protected or that evidence based on hearsay is not evidence admissible to a court. Yet I am the only one who knows about these shenanigans because I have no opportunity to submit my evidence to any authority. A trespassing complaint complied to and enforced would have prevented my ongoing pain and suffering. To allow local government to use terrorist acts against a civilian is unconscionable. I have publicly stated that I am not going to be the only victim of this serious criminal act for the purpose of personal financial gain. Thank you for listening. Give me a day in court or an AR-15. This is exactly why civilians need assault rifles. https://poisonedbymyneighborfromhell.com

Dear Senator Grassley

Dear Senator Grassley,

I have been corresponding with your assistant John Kaufman since 2006. He advises me that you are aware of my complaint. John has through the years advised me of several things that did not materialize as he said it would. My complaint is that my local government officials used chemicals unlawfully applied to my private property with intent to cause me serious injury or death. The chemicals were applied by a neighbor who purchased his legally nonconforming lot from the Mayor. He illegally redeveloped the property causing nuisance drainage, loss of value and structural damage to my property. My complaints to the building administrator were ignored. His duty to address my concerns were refused. Instead this neighbor’s brother, a County Detective, with an obvious conflict of interest began acting as a city building authority. This County officer had no authority or jurisdiction to act as any official in this City. The actual building administrator continued issuing this neighbor fraudulent building permits. As expected when this neighbor went to get his redevelopment recorded on the County plat map, it was rejected.

It was at this time he, along with the City officials and the County attorney determined his remedy was to eliminate me. With the addition of my property added with his he would be in compliance with State building code. 

He began applying chemicals to my side of the 300′ common boundary in spring of 2005. I developed a “rash” on my shins at this same time. I had owned my property for ten years, I have never had any type of “rash”, never so much as poison ivy. Through the advice of a dermatologist and the process of elimination it has been determined the “rash” was caused by the chemicals my neighbor had exposed me to. I requested him to stop, asking for an incident report from the police chief. The neighbor would not stop. I received an incident report 16 months after the initial exposure. By this time the “rash” had developed into a severe skin condition. It was unbearable to simple wear clothes. I was completely unable to function from what had become a full body condition of eruptions on my skin. I researched the chemical and it did have a history of being known to cause rashes on peoples skin. In this case I was exposed intentionally by this neighbor in which I had no control. I requested the City and the County attorney file a trespassing complaint against him on my behalf. They refused stating they did not believe in neighbor against neighbor complaints. A double standard as I was criminally charged by the City and the State on fabricated laws and ordinances. This was an attempt to cause me financial harm. The chemicals had already rendered me unable to work. I was an upholsterer. The eruptions constantly caused random bleeding from my hands and arms. If I could have worked I could not afford to get blood stains on clients fabric. I was living on money borrowed from friends. Prior to this chemical exposure I was ready to semi retire. I had excellent credit rating and felt financially stable enough to be more selective in the jobs I accepted. I was referred to an attorney. He was briefed on my case by the person who referred him to me. When we met we both understood that the liable party was the city. It was the city who issued the fraudulent building permits. It was the city who refused to stop the trespassing with chemicals on my private property. It was the Mayor who stated on public record that the builders signature on a building permits alleviates the cities liability. At that time I presented one of the building permits issued by the city to this neighbor with no signature. The mayor had no response. There are many similar incidents where the officials implicate themselves on public record. 

I have never needed an attorney or had any experience in a courtroom. I paid my attorney at our first meeting the amount he needed to file a complaint against the city.  He advised that we would sue both the city and the neighbor, adding that the city is where the money is. I submitted my witness list to him. He was impressed, stating that my witness list is “compelling in itself”, that they are “experts in their own right”. I was naive and actually believed an attorney would always have their clients best interest in mind. I have had a significant reality check since then. My attorney had to have gotten a better financial reward from the opposing party. He never filed the complaint but continued to assure me that he did. I get served papers from this neighbor. He is suing me for “loss of enjoyment of his property”. All along the chemicals have routinely been applied to my property. My attorney still misleading me to believe he had filed the complaint against the city advised we would counter sue the neighbor for nuisance drainage. When I advised him of the severe skin condition the chemicals were causing I assumed he would amend the complaint to include damages I suffered from the chemicals. He did not amend the complaint. At trial he did not question any of my witnesses or submit their written affidavits. He did not submit any of the photo evidence that I had been documenting this entire time. Even with my evidence suppressed the judge cited my right to use my property as I wished. He dismissed both complaints. It was on the last day of this civil trial that I asked my attorney about the case against the city. He snickered and told me that he did not want that case. I did not understand why he would deceive me in this way. I understand now that he was a co conspirator with the opposing party. I did feel a sense of relief knowing that the judge ordered my right to use my property as I wished. That was a false sense of relief. The chemicals continued to be applied to my property without pause. I had lost my eyesight by this time. I could not read or recognize people. Only by their voices could I know who was around me. The vision loss was a result of the massive amounts of steroid injections administered by the ER at the local hospital. The steroids would offer me fifteen minutes of relief, that fifteen minutes helped me want to stay alive and regain my health. During this time I contacted you though John Kaufman. First he gave me specific direction as to where to send my evidence. I recall it was the Davenport office with ATT. Penny. I submitted that large envelope of evidence and never heard another thing about it. Sometime later, in a state of dis pare I contacted you again. I signed another authorization for personal information and was advised that you requested an inquiry on my behalf from the FBI. You advised me that the FBI would contact me. I waited five years, Senator Grassley. No FBI ever contacted me. The chemicals continued in a more aggressive manner as my health deteriorated. I contacted you again. Again you advised me that you would request another inquiry on my behalf. You again advised me that the FBI would contact me. You advised me to “be patient” it “takes time”. Another five years passed and no FBI contacted me. 

One afternoon a County sheriff’s officer who was aware of the situation stopped by my home. He advised me that this neighbor had no intention to stop applying the chemicals to my property. The neighbor had to acquire my property or the court would order him to bring his structures into compliance to State building code, or remove the structures and return the lot to its existing condition. Having no protection of the law I had only two options that would eliminate the chemical exposure. One would be to commit a criminal offense myself or I could flee and seek compensation when and if I regained my health. Staying at my home was certain death. I fled homeless, blind and with a severe full body skin condition. 

I am still waiting for an investigation into my case. I contacted an agent though the County Sheriff. Against my gut knowing he had a conflict of interest with the opposing party. 

The agent took 14 months to come to my home. The purpose was specifically for him to review my evidence. He arrived announcing that he had no intention of reviewing any of my evidence. He advised me to verbally tell him my story. I protested. I attempted to point out the violations of Federal law that have been committed against me. Such as violation of my private property rights. He did not recognize that as a violation of Federal law. In fact he was not interested in what I was telling him. He seemed lethargic. He was steady checking the time on his wrist watch. He gave me 2 1/2 hours to tell him a story that took a student lawyer the better part of three days to review the evidence I have documented in this case. Two hours after this agent left my home I receive in my mailbox a letter from the Washington DC headquarters a letter signed by Deputy assistant director JC Hacker. The letter stated that the agent had determined no violation of Federal law has occurred. This investigation was a fraud. this agent did not interview any of my witnesses, he did not interview my Dr. He did not look through financial records for a payment of a bribe. It is not possible for an agent to send a report to Washington DC, and an assistant director to get a decision back to me in Iowa in a period of two hours. This agent pre determined his decisions based on false information the County Sheriff gave to a third party. Several weeks later I received a letter stating as much of the same.

You advised me to document everything. I did that Senator Grassley, the part that has not been done is a competent authority to review my documented evidence. 

 ​Attached is a heartfelt letter I sent to the FBI Omaha division. Still nobody responded, this was soon after your last request for an inquiry. These actors will not go unpunished. In a case of crimes against humanity and torture there are no Statute of Limitations.  Senator I am giving you this one last opportunity to do your job and follow through on what you have the power to do. 

If I do not get a response in a timely fashion I will accept the fact that you have given your permission to take the law into my own hands and serve justice myself using my 2nd amendment right. I hope that if this letter is intercepted by one of your staff members they personally hand it to you. You can reach me at 319-520-0253. It is unfortunate that I have not been allowed to talk directly with you. You present yourself as a supporter of Constitutional Rights and support whistle blowers. I pray that you do not force me into committing a criminal offense. I have no criminal history. I do have a paper trail of my contact with you that will be exposed after you let choose to allow a tragedy occur.  I would like copies of the FBI reports following up on your requests for the inquiries you requested on my behalf. If there are none then it is clear that no legitimate investigation has been done in this case. I will know when an investigation is being done because I have the evidence supporting my allegations in my possession. Advise the FBI there is no statute of limitation for torture. Advise the FBI that this is a case of cruel and unusual punishment. Advised the FBI that hearsay is not evidence. Advise the FBI and the US Attorney for the Southern District of Iowa that they do not have the authority to violated my Federally protected Constitutional Rights anymore that these local government officials did. Hold them accountable for the crimes against humanity they have committed. Good Day Senator.

sincerely serious,

Melody Boatner. ​​

My Doctor says “I am pioneer of the effects Roundup by Monsanto can cause to the human body after being intentionally exposed to the chemical for over five years on a routine basis.
