NOTICE OF COMPLAINT

ICMS #: 2022-0028
On January 10, 2022 the OPO received an email complaint.
The complainant alleges:
This email results as a reflective addendum to our most recent conversation. I have considered
our discussion and I felt it necessary to place in writing my feelings.
I have attached a copy of the email that I composed and submitted to the Leadership Austin Team
immediately after the criminals from
victimized me by committing
this heinous crime of robbery in my home. I want to reinforce that this egregious act was
perpetrated under the guise of the federally mandated weatherization program designed by the City
of Austin as an aide to the most vulnerable in our community. To qualify for this program, one
must meet the criteria designed by the application process established by the City of Austin
Weatherization Department. Primarily, the applicant must be in the class of the most vulnerability
in our community.
After I failed to reason with
items that were stolen from me, I initiated a complaint with the City of Austin Police Department.
After my initial complaint was heard and received, my case was assigned to Detective
have never made it a secret that my most sincere desire was that I wanted all of my items returned
to me. I submitted correspondence to Detective
via email, and my only conversation with
resulted from his attempt to learn from me the federal status of this criminal
activity perpetrated by these criminals from
. Shortly after Detective
learned the federal position of my complaint, I lost the ability to interact with Detective
either by email or by phone. I have since learned from Officer (Commander)
from you, Detective
has been out for an extended period due to
Covid. I am saddened that the severity of my complaint and the extent of this organized crime
was not given more consideration neither then, nor now, due to the protected classes affected by
these heinous actions.
NOTICE OF COMPLAINT
During our most recent conversation, you suggested to me that I should just forget about this
heinous crime that was perpetrated on me. Again, I say to you madame, that this robbery
seemingly was committed as organized crime. The extent of this atrocious robbery far exceeds
the parameters of petty thief. These contemptible actions should have been pursued within the
realms of a justifiable resolution as the aim. I have repeatably asked for all of my items to be
returned. I initiated this request with the initial call that I placed to
girlfriend. I asked
her to tell
that I want my items returned. I followed up the call with
and then with
. (See attached notes).
You suggested that my pursuit to retrieve my property, and or justice that is inclusive of alarming
relevant authorities about this organized crime causes detrimental stress. You suggested that the
ongoing pursuit of justice could likely stress me to the extent that it will kill me. Might I suggest
to you that the stress of recurrently evidencing the extent, in my home, of this odious crime
committed on me, compounds the stress that you have suggested. The knowledge that my
complaint was minimized and not pursued farther compounds this stress. Knowledge that the
Austin Police Department failed me, and other protected individuals causes this stress. This is the
stress that exacerbate my medical, and physical condition. The perception that nothing was done
by authorities, or the Detectives for Austin Police Department intensifies this stress and could
conclude in a severe detriment to me
When I verbalized my apprehensive feelings to you resulting from this reprehensible crime
committed in my home, you suggested to me that I sell my home. This is my home. I choose this
home and my husband initiated the purchased of it for me. Water shed Protection has used my
home as contentious discussion for many years. I have lived here for almost 40 years. I have been
harassed and victimized in my home. I made references of these occurrences during my
conversations with you. This is my home. Questioned has been posed as to how my husband and
I got this house.

build this home. “ My home, here, the one that I currently live in. I had nothing to do with the
building of this home. I do not k now who they are, however, I feel that they are inclusive of
elements within the City of Austin who have seemingly colluded against me to lead to the
objectionable offense of thief in my home. I feel that I was set up for this crime to be perpertrated.
I honestly appreciate the time you spent in discussion with me. Now, understand my stance; these
vile elements not only violated the sanctity of my home, but they also intentionally inflicted harm
to my property, cause despair and committed atrocities that I shall never be able to reconcile
mentally, emotionally, or maybe financially. These vile conspirators stole things, memorabilia

property was not returned to me).
