Master Post

We emailed the FBI and some support and media outlets today.  Please add places we can contact.

ETA:  I'm Debbie Byrd Shinn.  The women who contacted me who said they were from DHS named themselves Patti Young, Natasha Ivory, and Joyce Cook.  None of those names are in the MS Employee registery:  http://dsitspe01.its.ms.gov/its/webphone.nsf/Home?OpenForm

Ever since the activity started at the trailer next door, dh smelled a lot of ammonia and organic solvents in the evening.  He originally put it down to remodeling.  He also remembers being asked if he could show somebody how to "cook something" last year.  "Cook what?" he asked puzzled.

Here is a letter my husband prepared for the FBI.  Please forward it to any parties who might be interested:

Over the last several weeks my wife has been the subject of an harassment campaign.

She has blogged this at crabby-lioness.livejournal.com

Most of this happens when I am not at home.

This began with a daylight breaking and entry, and what was suggested by the county attorney to be an attemptedkidnapping of our son. And the telephone went dead 1 hour before all this. (No reply from PSC.)

Deputy Jimmy Rappe,in no uniform, but acting as such still, refused to look at the door, but told my wife DHS would respond; he was interested only in the child being out of the house, and told her not to lock the door.

The sheriff’s dept. knows about the evidence of the break-in, but have never picked it up from the Okolona police.

DHS blames my wife for letting the baby out of the house, as if this break-in never happened. The county attourney even suggested this was an attempted kidnapping; we have asked him as well to have this investigated.

 One day after that when my family was with relatives in another county, Chris Ware Chickasaw SD, called me at work,that there was an emergency at my house, that some of my family were inside injured, and no one would come to thedoor. I told him no one was at home. He and DHS said they did not believe me. I said if anyone was in my house, they had broken in, and asked Ware to investigate the windows and doors – he refused. Okolona police recommended we get a civil rights attorney at this point, but none up here will take our case.

More items of harassment came in a steady trickle as we tried to find a way to move.

Saturday, Oct. 9, 2010, our home was entered shortly after we left. About 45 minutes after we left, 3:27 pm,someone called my telephone, and a stranger inside picked up. They discussed and viewed my wife’s medical records,which we found by the telephone. Our attorney did not want us to report this, and it does seem a little pointless since an Okolona policeman thinks one of the voices is Jimmy Rappe, of the Chickasaw SD.

His mother lives next door (see the trailer story following) and has made threatening statements before.

Please read her further descriptions and help us end this harassment.

I suspect something is going on over at the trailer near us; it was almost abandoned until about 2 months ago.

I have smelled ammonia and strong organic solvents (I have a degree in chemistry) from that direction since.

One night, several people came down, turned off the outside light, carried boxes into the pitch-black interior, then emerged with even more boxes, coming down steps and loading these into vehicles in total darkness. Something is going on.

We have removed from the house, as we deem it no longer safe.

 Please, please, read her further descriptions and help us end this harassment.

 Thank you,

Robert Shinn, Ph.D.

Good luck!

When you say that this is your husband's letter to the FBI, do you mean a normal postal letter? I'd suggest trying something a little quicker if at all possible. Do you have an e-mail address to use to contact them?

Here is a list of newspapers in Mississippi, which includes links to their websites. it also includes links to TV and radio stations. Somebody there might be interested in following the story. So far as newspapers are concerned, though, I wouldn't try anything too local.

I'm so glad you've relocated!

I've emailed the text of this posting to the Miss. ACLU.

Stay safe!

u need to mood that might be meth. if so an crooked cops are involved u get no help. but u will hear a loud bang if that is meth when the place blows up.

now chain of command
if police act stupid u report police to FBI, contact ebony mag, and jet or Google articles about police and those mags, Yep, mags of color but a group of people that has had lots of problems with the police.These mags have listed things dealing with how to report the POPO. U might also write them a letter to document ur trouble along with letters to The Souther Poverty Law Center.

Definitely sounds like you have a Meth Lab next door.

Good luck with things, and I hope the contacts that have been made help your situation. You need to be safe, and then work on pursuing things on legal grounds. Both criminal and civil.

Seconded on the hypothesis that it's a meth lab. It would explain a *lot*

Good luck with the feds. You might want to try the DEA, too.

Re: Contacted
Excellent. Good luck!

Re: Contacted
Have you been able to talk to anyone at these orgs on the phone? That would be MUCH better than email. If you can only phone one place, make it the FBI. (601) 948-5000

If you can't make a lot of phone calls, perhaps we can round up people who can. It would be best if they are people from MS, AL, TN, or AR who would be willing to be interviewed by the media. Say the word.

I am SO GLAD you are out of that house.
Oct. 15th, 2010 05:24 am (UTC)
completely OT, but why do you call your hubby 'dh'? feel free to tell me it's nunya if you want, it just got my curiousity going^_^;;

also, I've been asking around for someone to take a look at what's going on...hopefully they'll be able to give you some pointers~ (though most of them suggest hidden cameras:S)

Oct. 15th, 2010 06:14 am (UTC)
It stands for dear or darling husband.
Oct. 15th, 2010 06:48 am (UTC)
that's what I thought, but I'm so used to seeing/hearing "husband, darling" instead, so it threw me a lil off^_^;;


Oct. 15th, 2010 05:26 am (UTC)
oh, and I agree...GET IN TOUCH WITH THE MEDIA.

seriously:S it adds a lil protection, for one...if you go to the media and something happens to you, it'll make a friggen red flag of doom go right up over these assholes' hangout~

I agree on the meth lab bit. Meth uses household chemicals and creates a rather strong stench about. (I've lived in areas with meth issues, myself.) Also the 'cooking' comment. Really sounds like they're setting up/have already set up a meth lab next door.

As to the people involved, it sounds like they have a decent sized organization(how many people are involved/don't want to do anything about your case)...up where I live the areas that are heavily into meth production tend to be smaller suburbs/rural towns that have little to no real police protection/the cops are too scared to do anything under threat of violence.

(As to that, there is a town an hour away from where I live (Warrensburg MO, a college town) Called Windsor. They have had a sheriff's office several times over the years, and people have gotten hurt/terrorized until they just quit. Now there is a town of several hundred people with no permanent police presence.)

So even if the rest of the sheriff's department isn't 'in on it' or corrupt, there is a chance that they might be under the heel so-to speak as well, that's why it's a wonderful idea to get outside people involved.

Now, back to who runs these meth labs(least around here). Small towns don't have the business/money/demand to keep up several meth labs, so usually labs will cook up batches in smaller towns and then take them to distribute in larger cities where demand is higher. Around here, some of the older remnants of the Mafia, and some of the larger gangs(large in the sense that not all of them are hustling still) have people they pay to make meth for their distribution.

As to why this hassling is taking place...they could potentially think you heard something or saw something. Or they could just not -want- you to do either of those things.

I hope that you can get this taken care of, no one deserves to be terrorized in their own home.

That sounds awfully familiar.
Oct. 15th, 2010 04:00 pm (UTC)
Good luck - there are several nasty things that could be done with chemicals that include ammonia - drugs, explosives... you should tell that to the FBI as well
Oct. 16th, 2010 05:36 am (UTC)
I've read a lot of bullshit stories in my time, but this takes the cake.
Oct. 16th, 2010 07:36 am (UTC)
Good luck!! I'm glad to hear of who all has been contacted. I've reposted and mirrored your posts to my LJ as well. Stay safe, keep fighting; I'll be rooting for you and following along!
Oct. 24th, 2010 12:58 am (UTC)
Yeah, everyone in power seems to be connected and corrupt. And definately drugs involved. I'm guessing this is a rather small area you live in? these things are usually very well connected within the government. For us DHS, the police and the everyday scumbags were all involved with everything

It also sounds like these people are after your kids. I'm guessing if they get taken away, their gonna use their conections to get them sent to people they know. As hard as it is for you, your kids need to some first. Always. Again, something you know, sorry.

Look, I'm gonna post all this wherever I can, get some exposure out there and hope that it helps.

Holy God Almighty! This sound like what happened in my neighborhood. A group were using two houses on opposite ends of my area to cook meth. Both blew and, due to living in a tree fulled area, nearly took the subdivition with them.
