December 11, 2007

Director – Robert S. Mueller, III
Federal Bureau of Investigation
J. Edgar Hoover Building
935 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW
Washington, D.C. 20535-0001

Director Mueller,

I’m notifying you in your official capacity as the Director of the FBI of continuing and on-going violations of my civil rights and official police misconduct, including illegal electronic surveillance and harassment, by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE), Holmes County (HC) Sheriff’s Department, and the West Florida Electric Cooperative (WFEC) Association. I am requesting that the FBI investigate my charges and supply me with a report of the investigation. The enclosed VHS videotape, which I discuss below, is more than enough evidence to warrant a FBI investigation of my charges.

State and county law enforcement officers illegally arranged with WFEC employees for the illegal electronic surveillance devices’ installation on the two utility poles servicing the house and grounds. Both utility poles are located on private property and are not on the public roadway. The audio/video surveillance devices are capable of “bugging” between 20-40 square acres, have serial ID #’s, and are inventoried. Florida Law Enforcement Officers also arranged for the illegal installation of a remotely activated tracking device in one vehicle and supplied neighbors with a remote control to activate the device whenever they saw me leave.

Three electronic surveillance experts all verified illegal FL law enforcement "bugs" on the two utility poles servicing the house and grounds, but refused to supply their reports. The first one, Diop Kamau, said that law enforcement would arrest me if he supplied the report. Both Mr. Kamau and his employee, Doug Jones, subsequently denied saying this, but still didn’t supply their report. Mr. Kamau obtained his Florida Private Investigator’s license after failing to provide his signed report. The second one, Jim Toth, confirmed that law enforcement installed a tracking device in one vehicle and identified Audio Surveillance Devices (AIDs) as the supplier of the surveillance devices on the utility poles, but said that he would lose his FL PI license if he supplied his report. Mr. Toth agreed to be videotaped while he conducted his Technical Surveillance Counter Measure (TSCM) “sweep,” and I videotaped him refusing to check the utility pole in the backyard for any surveillance devices. Mr. Toth said that only law enforcement would install a device on the utility poles because there are too many easier places to put them. Mr. Toth said that the police had installed a GPS remotely activated tracking device in the mini-van. He also said that the authorities have a warrant and will have to tell me about it within 30 days. I observed Mr. Toth scramble the video image he obtained on his OSCOR’s screen and then remark that there’s a video camera nearby, but he couldn’t get an image. The third expert, Jim Ross, had a conflict of interest, which he didn’t disclose. Mr. Ross is a close personal friend of Mr. G. Gordon Liddy. Mr. Liddy is the founder of the Liddy Foundation, which assumed the mission of the National Intelligence Academy (NIA) after Hurricane Andrew destroyed AID’s facility in Homestead, FL (AIDs was sold sometime ago and NIA spun off). Ross also said in reference to Florida law enforcement, “They want to be in charge.”

Former FL Gov. Bush suggested that I bring any evidence of my charges to my state attorney. I sent State Attorney Steve Meadows a VHS videotape (copy enclosed) in which recorded audio phenomenon that two TSCM experts said was indicative of electronic surveillance was pronounced. The amplification and reverberation of the dog’s barking and the sounds of a low flying helicopter recorded in the VHS tape copy indicative of electronic surveillance. Additional examples of this phenomenon are demonstrated in the enclosed VHS tape. Although not a TSCM expert, a sibling who is a Ph.D., PE indicated that the sound appears caused by some type of advanced technology. I also sent State Attorney Steve Meadows a copy of an email, dated Dec. 3, 2004 (attached) from my neighbor, which tends to verify my version of events. Since all state law enforcement and related agencies refused to investigate, I sent a copy of the VHS tape and my charges to US Rep. Jeff Miller and requested his help. US Rep Miller found the VHS tape to be compelling evidence of my charges. In his November 14, 2005 letter (see attached), he encouraged me to contact my State Representative, Donald Brown, for help. I contacted Rep. Brown, but I never received any reply until late in the afternoon of November 30, 2005 (see attached). Earlier that morning retired FDLE Agent Betty Romminger visited the Holmes’ County library to research some articles regarding a bungled FDLE drug bust. This drug bust and subsequent arrests are in part responsible for the FDLE’s refusal to investigate my charges. The judge declared a mistrial in that case because the State Attorney and FDLE withheld evidence and testimony. I suspect that this withheld evidence and testimony would prove my charges.

The evidence that my state rep’s assistant, Mr. Drake, referred to in his email is the VHS videotape. I contacted the respective I.G.s. On June 20, 2006, I emailed IG Harper and courtesy-copied IG Al Dennis offering to meet with them together or separately. IG Dennis replied that he forwarded my inquiry to FDLE Executive Investigations for review. Former FDLE Executive Investigations Director Jamie McLaughlin previously dismissed my earlier complaints with the pretext: “There does not appear to be a criminal predicate which would warrant investigation by the Office of Executive Investigations.” The former Director lied and officially sanctioned a cover-up. Within two days of receipt of my complaint by then FL AG Charlie Crist’s office, a FDLE Executive Investigation was initiated and Director McLaughlin resigned purportedly over charges regarding what could be considered a form of sexual harassment. According to the FDLE Executive Investigation’s report, the victim was a subordinate with whom the Director had an affair with for a number of years.

By letter, dated June 26, 2006, I notified Governor Bush that I had contacted both IG’s per my State Rep’s suggestion and shared my concerns regarding FDLE Executive Investigations’ good faith in investigating my charges. Ms. Kim Likens from the Governor's OIG phoned and left a message Monday (July 3, 2006) morning to call her. I returned her call later that afternoon and left a message. Ms. Likens called back and told me that her boss, Dawn Case, wanted her to call me and tell me that she had forwarded my letter to the Governor to FDLE IG Al Dennis earlier in the day (see attached). Likens said that this matter belongs with the FDLE. Later that same afternoon (July 3, 2006), FDLE Criminal Investigator (Inspector) Keith Wilmer called me. Director of Investigations Case’s early morning referral to the FDLE IG apparently prompted Inspector Wilmer’s call later that afternoon.

Inspector Wilmer denied that he saw earlier letters regarding this matter. However, Inspector Wilmer repeatedly quoted my earlier correspondence verbatim. When Inspector Wilmer’s questioning became silly, I asked him directly: Are there FL law enforcement bugs on the utility poles? Inspector Wilmer said that he did not know. Criminal Investigator Wilmer then told me to have WFEC check their poles and transformers quoting the exact text that I used in my initial letter to WFEC VP & CEO William Rimes requesting a search. Wilmer also instructed me to have a FL licensed mechanic search for the transponder in the mini-van. Later he refused to say whether or not he viewed a copy of the VHS videotape.

On September 5, 2006, I received an email from the FL OAG replying to my inquiry if I should file a Public Records Request with the OAG or the SAO for records in possession of the SAO. I sent an earlier Public Records Request to SA Steve Meadows’ office for a copy of all records in his files regarding this matter, but I never received any reply. The USPS verified that the SAO received my request, which suggests that SA Meadows ignored it. The OAG’s email instructed that I should submit such a request to the state attorney’s office, indicating that I had filed my earlier request with the correct office. On Sept. 8, 2006 a clerk in the SAO emailed that Mr. Lewis, Chief Assistant State Attorney (Florida’s 14th Judicial District) asked her to respond to my previously ignored Public Records Request. She said that she never received a request and that I should send another, which I did. I later received a letter, dated October 2, 2006, from Mr. Lewis in which he questioned my credibility and refused to answer my question whether or not he, his boss, or newly hired SAO Investigator Guy Tunnel viewed the VHS tape. Governor Bush had sent a copy of one of my complaints to former FDLE Guy Tunnel, who never replied. I later received a letter, dated 12-6-06 from Chief Assistant State Attorney William A. Lewis (see attached), which stated that there was no basis to my charges. A subsequent FL Public Records Request to the SAO for Assistant State Attorney Lewis’ “inquiries” file produced little and omitted a lot. In addition, I filed numerous Public Records Requests with both the FDLE and Sheriff’s Dept., which didn’t reveal any records of any official investigations. “Off the books” investigations and “informal inquiries” are employed to smear and discredit someone’s charges of official misconduct while serving to threaten and intimidate witnesses. As a matter of fact, the FDLE even went to a family member’s place of employment during one of these endless “investigations” on a pretext that she was a “pot head,” but did not speak to her. Her superiors, when they could stop laughing, told her what the cops said. There was no reason for this cowardly inexcusable abuse of authority by so-called law enforcement officers other than an attempt to smear and defame in order to cover-up their criminal conduct and abuse of authority.

State Attorney Steve Meadows is obstructing justice by covering up FL law enforcement officers’ criminal misconduct and abuse of authority. This is at least the second set of such electronic surveillance devices installed by WFEC under the direction of Florida law enforcement and other state officials. WFEC removed the first set under the protection of FDLE officials. In reply to my initial request for help identifying any authorized or unauthorized listening devices connected to any of their equipment servicing my residence, WFEC VP and CEO William S. Rimes wrote that he took my charges seriously and forwarded my letter to HC Sheriff Dennis Lee for action. The Sheriff’s first contact was about two weeks later when an FDLE helicopter hovered over the house late one evening for more than ½ hr purportedly searching for a neighbor who the FDLE attempted to arrest that evening. Sheriff Dennis Lee was in that FDLE helicopter piloted by his first cousin. In addition to a powerful searchlight, a large infrared device mounted under the helicopter assisted in their late night “search.” Earlier in the day, an FDLE Agent disguised as a Federal Express driver delivered a 3.5 lb. package of meth to my neighbor’s wife. My neighbor arrived home as the bust was in progress, grabbed the package that his wife signed for, and escaped with the evidence. He outran a lot of FDLE agents in his escape. The FDLE returned later that evening on the pretext of apprehending him at his home. However, the entire event was staged in an attempt to provoke a violent incident with me and remove their illegal “bugs” in the aftermath. When I didn’t react as my “profilers” anticipated, the Sheriff ordered the agents to storm the grounds in hot pursuit of an imaginary fugitive in an attempt to provoke another incident. The FDLE arrested my neighbor’s wife on drug and theft charges and later arrested my neighbor on the same charges when he turned himself into authorities.

Sometime later when I stopped an attempt by a WFEC utility crew to open the locked front gate to gain access in order to surreptitiously remove the bugs, the crew foreman summoned the Sheriff. A young deputy who had not been certified yet as a FL LEO arrived to assure access for the crew. The foreman fortunately agreed to reschedule the inspection, which was subsequently canceled. Sometime after this incident, I talked to this same foreman and his superior, Russell Dunaway, at the front gate. They both consented to be videotaped. They said that they were upgrading service and would have to replace the two transformers (containing the illegal “bugs”) on the property within a month or else disconnect power. I asked Mr. Dunaway if he knew anything about any illegal electronic surveillance devices on their poles. He said that he had no knowledge and that they’re not in the electronic surveillance equipment business. My questioning irritated Mr. Dunaway as he turned beet red (visible in the video). He then added that I put the device on the pole myself.

Two months later, a large contingent of WFEC employees arrived to “upgrade” services by replacing the two transformers, containing the illegal surveillance devices, with new ones. The foreman agreed for the operation to be videotape. WFEC CEO & VP William Rimes oversaw the work from the road. Rimes became visibly upset when I recognized him and videotaped him. Although they again agreed to conduct a search for illegal devices, once in they refused to search as agreed or even open the lightening arresters and fuses on the transformers. Moreover, they insisted that the lightening arrester was solid and could not be opened, which was a lie. The crew foreman threatened to call the Sheriff and have me arrested if I searched their equipment myself. I asked this foreman if he intended to reuse this transformer with the implication for surveillance purposes, and he replied that he had just the place for it. They replaced the existing transformers with new ones and left.

In his August 14, 2007 letter (copy enclosed), the Honorable Jeff Miller wrote: “I am confident that if the agency finds merit in your allegations or have further questions, they will be in touch with you. Do understand that as a matter under the Privacy Act, the agencies may not be able to report back to your or even confirm any action taken.” I don’t understand Representative Miller’s comments. I wrote the Jacksonville FBI Field Office in June charging the FDLE and HC Sheriff’s Department with illegal electronic surveillance and harassment, but still haven’t received even an acknowledgment. As FBI Director, please explain what the Honorable is talking about, because it doesn’t make any sense to any rational person. The Fourth Amendment is either still the law or it isn’t. Whose privacy is being protected? I filed a straightforward complaint, so why haven’t I been able to get a straight answer? Are my charges legitimate or aren’t they?

FL law enforcement and the 14th District SAO have an inherent conflict of interest in investigating my charges. FDLE Executive Investigations, the department that is entrusted with insuring the integrity of FL LEO’s, is in fact covering up just as the SAO. Consequently, I’m requesting that the FBI help to end this egregious violation of my civil rights as well as others by FL law enforcement officers, who apparently believe that the 4th Amendment doesn’t apply to them. I’ll provide additional video and audiotapes, documents, and witnesses to prove my charges. Please advise by December 31, 2007 as to whether or not you intend to investigate my charges. Thank you.

Respectfully submitted,
Joe Keegan

W.I.P. Removal

Around 8:50 a.m. this morning, a large WFEC bucket truck pulled up to the utility pole out front that they had mounted a second thinner transformer on Oct. 30, 2007. The driver and his helper lingered, which is unusal because WFEC employee do move it. At 9:00 a.m. a second WFEC utility arrived and pulled up to the utility pole. It looked like a truck crane with the hook at the end of the boom. I was surprised to see it also had outriggers, which stabilize cranes. As the second truck lowered its outriggers, the first truck raised its bucket to the transformers and the technician began disconnecting the wires connecting the two transformers to each other. I thought that they intended to replace the smaller thinner transformer with a larger one, but that wasn't the case. The second truck raised it boom with bucket and hook, but there was no new transformer. Instead they hooked onto the thin secondary transformer that they had installed on Oct. 30, 2007, and lowered it to the ground. There was no replacement. The driver and helper from the first bucket truck finished up and left first. The second crane/bucket truck left shortly after the employees raised and secured the outriggers and transformers. Usually just one truck performs this operation, but I guess that they either had an extra truck or were on a tight schedule. Both trucks had left by 9:15 a.m. As I said, WFEC employees are efficient. Fortunately my neighbors dogs weren't around to get in the way. Finally, I can't help but wonder why they put that additional transformer up in the first place only to remove it in December?

Friday, December 07, 2007


Yesterday morning about 8:00 a.m. I was admiring how clear and blue the sky was (I'm also into sunrises and sunsets) when I noticed a contrail forming to the south. I couldn't see or hear the aircraft, but just see the contrail form slowly from east to the west. I didn't think much of it, until a little after 9:00 a.m., when I observed that there were now 4 or 5 contrails and they were not evaporating. I wondered if these were the "chemtrails" that I had read about on the internet and heard discussed on Art Bell? I wondered if "they" had done this before, but I missed it because I couldn't hear or see the planes because of the altitude? My critics say that I don't miss anything, but I've never seen this phenomenon before here in Holmes County. I thought to myself, "Why Holmes County? It's not cost effective. Not enough people (about 20k and rural), cattle, or agriculture to be cost effective. Could it be some test on the population? During the rest of the morning I watched the clear blue sky crossed by parallel contrails from east to west that weren't dispersing, but lingering and merging into a white covering which obscured the blue and otherwise cloudless sky. The sun, however, was still shinning brightly through the white covering. These were chemtrails! I also observed that additional ones were intersecting the earlier ones from south to north creating a grid pattern, but not much of one. There was no need. The earlier east to west ones had spread sufficiently to fill the sky in all directions but about 2 miles to the north where they ended just pass Route 160. Just two or three planes silently created the entire chemtrail grid, which completely covered the sky with a white overcast that turned gray, by noon (your tax dollars at work!).The white turned gray by 2:00 p.m., but the sun still shined through although somewhat strangely. I also pay attention to the quality of light.

This morning, Dec. 7, I observed more of a haze than a mist. I probably wouldn't have noticed it and dismissed it as morning fog if I hadn't witnessed yesterday's chemtrails. What surprised me, however, was that unlike the past 3 days there was no morning frost on the ground! I noticed the chilly air (more like frigid) when I drove up front to put out the trash. The air was "iced," but there was no frost for the first time in the last 4 or 5 days on the ground. It was as though the frost/ice was in the air instead of on the vegetation. I decided to water the newly planted sod around the pond. For the past few days, I had waited until things warmed up to turn on the water because the line would have been frozen, but no frost so no ice I thought. I was surprised that I could water the sod at 7:00 a.m., instead of the usual 10-11 am or so. Again, it was as though the "frost/ice" was in "the air." The ground was frostless.

My only question is: Why Holmes County? I'm certainly not important enough and just another scandal, there's not enough people, livestock, or agriculture to make the operation cost effective, so why Holmes County? At the risk of sounding conspiratorial, dare I ask: testing?
