Fight Back! Public Corruption
Across Colorado, through no fault of their own, young families, property investors the elderly and others have found themselves suddenly the owners of an illegal meth-lab; and are then held responsible for the entire environmental clean-up mandated by State regulations. Many of these homeowner then learn that the Regulator with the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment responsible for the enforcement just happens to be identified as a Board Member on a private group of pseudoprofessionals who are responsible for performing unlawful assessments and unlawful property decontamination resulting in falsified Real Estate documents.
In violation of Colorado statutes, members of the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment have been engaging in a scheme of corruption, falsification of real estate documents, and graft, that has involved the willing participation of the Tri-County Health Department and the Boulder County Department of Health, and the unwilling participation by other County Governments.
If you have a home in Colorado that was identified as a meth-lab, and you believe that your home was properly mitigated and confirmed as being cleaned – you may be the victim of a crime perpetrated by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment. The probability is your real estate documentation was falsified, and the CDPHE condoned or even was responsible for the crime. Worse still is that it is possible that if you have purchased a home in Colorado, it may remain a contaminated property that has been hidden by the CDPHE. You may be living in a toxic time-bomb.
According to Patrick Fitzgerald, Former U.S. Attorney for Northern District of Illinois (July 8, 2015)
“Undoubtedly the most harmful consequence of endemic public corruption in a community is the apathy that it engenders – the culture of acceptance. Over many years of seeing corruption in almost every facet of government, many residents of a community begin to simply accept corruption as the immutable status quo. They come to assume government is broken and ineffective and destined to function corruptly. The consequences of this culture of acceptance in a community are many. Some residents simply disengage from the political process and no longer trust their government to function well or in their interest. Other residents may come to believe they must engage in corruption in order to gain government benefits themselves. Still others will begin to look the other way when they witness corrupt transactions. And honest folks are discouraged from entering politics or suffer from the skepticism engendered by others’ misdeeds.”
It is very easy to say “fight back,” but when it comes to the heavy lifting, it is virtually impossible for regular Joe America to take a stand – for a start, the corrupt public offices will be using your own tax dollars to defend themselves while you are using your own personal money to pursue the case. This represents a double loss from the outset; combine that with the character assassination from the bully pulpit used by the public official against you and the cost of speaking out mounts quickly.
Forensic Applications Consulting Technologies Inc. (FACTs) is a small Woman-owned Colorado “S” Corp incorporated in 2003 in the State of Colorado. In 2010, FACTs became involved in an CDPHE cover-up of meth contaminated properties wherein the State of Colorado would hire corrupt consultants to falsely state that residential properties had been assessed and cleaned – when in fact, the assessments were invalid and unlawful, and in many cases, the properties had never been cleaned, but the owners, buyers, and occupants were falsely informed the cleaning was done.
FACTs is filing suit against the criminals with the Department of Health who have scoffed at State laws, and scoffed at human health threats, but the suit is expensive and we cannot do it alone. If you have been a victim of this scheme, or know of someone who has, or you are just tired of fraud, we need your financial help! The funds received will be applied directly to a separate legal fund and used exclusively for pursuing justice in the State of Colorado in the ongoing suits. Unused funds will be returned and unused anonymous funds will be donated to a Colorado Charity.
Although hundreds of properties have been affected, the addresses and regulatory audits of known affected properties can be found in two locations on FACTs website:
Summary of Colorado Regulations
Meth Lab Addresses - Former and Present
We are asking for financial support to help ensure the corruption ends, and the individuals responsible for their criminal behavior are made to account for their actions.
Update: The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment , realizing that their case is falling apart, has dismissed 55 of the false allegation made against FACTs. Remarkably, the CDPHE continues to stand beside the remaining false allegations, and continues to dig itself into a deeper hole by falsifying regulatory variances.
FACTs has now completed 38 audits of clandestine drug reports, that the CDPHE has attempted to gloss over and suborn fraud to the detriment of property owners, landlords, and homeowners. FACTs has now documented 12,360 regulatory violations suborned by the CDPHE. Most of those audits are available in their entirety at http://www.forensic-applications.com/meth/Properties.html where we have also listed the addresses involved, as well as identified the fraudulent consultants involved in the scam.
In response to our motion to file suit against the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, the CDPHE has retaliated with the strong arm of State intimidation! The CDPHE has issued our little Woman-Owned firm a "Notice of Violation," with fabricated allegations against our little company with a potential a fine of approximately $678 MILLION. Now, what do you suppose our little consulting firm could have done to warrant such a massive fine? Nothing of course...
Except exposing the criminal activities at the CDPHE. The CDPHE is hoping that will silence us. As a result of the Notice of Violations, FACTs has issued three new “Regulatory Audits” as follows:
One for 4383 Tennyson Street, Denver, Colorado 80212, (343 regulatory violations)
One for 101 S. Clarkson, Denver, CO (440 regulatory violations)
And one for 690 S. Lincoln Street in Denver, CO 80203 (769 regulatory violations)
Please consider throwing in ten bucks, or $20, or whatever you like - This is a fight for everyone to address credibility, honesty and ethics in State Government.
Just a quick up-date: A couple weeks ago, FACTs formally filed a notice to government entities at the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment who are engaged in illegal activities involving properties that have been contaminated by illegal drug laboratories.
In retaliation, the State of Colorado has attempted to go back through reports on such properties prepared by FACTs and desperately try and identify “violations.” (FACTs is the only Consulting firm whose reports have been subject to review).
Unable to identify any significant violations, the State of Colorado has had to rely on two strategies: 1) Invent violations that don’t exist, by inventing regulatory requirements that don’t exist; and 2) rely on EXTREME stretches of regulatory language to “demonstrate” non compliance.
The first is self explanatory. For an example of the second, here is an actual situation the State is now seeking a fine of up to $3,840,000 from FACTs.
In Colorado, (for no particularly good reason), during the sampling assessment of an illegal drub laboratory, the Industrial Hygienist is required to collect surface samples from an area of 100cm2. During one project, our Industrial Hygienist selected a lally column in a basement for the surface – the lally column had a diameter of 24.95 cm2 (so, for all practical purposes, 25 cm2). The field Technician therefore, calculated the necessary second dimension of 4.008 cm and wrote on the field form 4.1 cm.
To jump ahead, the sample result was so extremely low, that it was just barely above instrument detection levels. The sample result was 0.04 µg/100cm2 (in Colorado the decision criteria is 0.5 µg/100cm2. According to the State of Colorado, the 0.02% margin of error is worthy of a 3.8 MILLION dollar fine, for a sample that was WAYYYYYY below the decision threshold anyway.
And yet, while the CDPHE is choking on these gnats – here are some photographs of camels from other consultant’s assessments which the State finds no objection (One should be reminded that the “acceptable” practices shown in the photographs are from consultants who have identified themselves as members of a private commercial group that identifies one of the regulators as serving as a Board Member!)
