Every disaster application generates a case file that is submitted to FEMA in Washington DC as record of fact. Just like what you see in the picture on the left.
It is the state's version of events as documented through their own divisions of FEMA.
In this specific case file, names were omitted and replaced with other names. Dates and times have also been falsified. Disaster victims don't know that they are entitled to receive a complete copy upon request, to keep for their records. Mississippi FEMA agents will allegedly falsify these documents to protect the entity from any legal action by a disaster victim. Names are replaced with employees of their choosing who will appear in court to discredit the victim's claims. FEMA also contracts with major law firms leaving victims little resources when they are forced to try and obtain counsel. As in any declared disaster, keep EVERY piece of paper related to your application. Even paperwork sent by the state. Some paperwork has information that is required by law to be sent to you. Some of that information is printed on the back side of documents and is printed in white ink so most people will never see it. Documentation is everything.
This new 3 bdrm ADA compatible modular facility was authorized by USDHS. Louisiana FEMA agreed to deliver it to the damaged address in Mississippi. It came from Bogalusa,LA. Orders were given for the transport company to make no stops between Louisiana and the final destination. Louisiana FEMA tied the facility down in a figure 8 formation as is protocol with any government facility. MS~FEMA was responsible for installing handicap ramps and initial hookups. If you notice, there was no handicap ramp installed at the rear exit as is considered standard protocol in any installation orders for persons with disabilities. Had there been a fire or emergency, no means of escape was made available for the rear of the unit. James's mother could not walk on her own and depended on a wheelchair. Was this intentional?
The evidence is still in place today. 129 Charwood Dr., Derby,MS 39470.

Family members of a small community made up a story against their neighbor and brought it to life. Most are related in one way or another. There were family members who worked for local government with one or more working for FEMA. Some had accused James McGee Jr. of income tax evasion. Others reported he wasn't a constituent.
The community took this story and reported it to the federal government within the first days of the recovery process. All services were blocked. USDHS also blocked services based on the same false reports submitted by local FEMA agents as fact. No Mississippi attorney's would help him clear his name. None from around the country either.
He died trying to get justice as guaranteed by the US Constitution and afforded to every US citizen. He was deprived of life.
USDHS was witness to the fact that MSFEMA would never provide any services as early as two weeks after the storm made landfall.. His mother died a horrible death in 2008. She had been ordered to be relocated from her home in St. Charles Parish because of the chemical plants and was moved to Mr. McGee's home in Pearl River County in Mississippi. The move was made in March of 2005 to extend her quality of life.
The only thing James McGee Jr. was guilty of was keeping his promise to take care of his mom and keep her safe. The state and federal governments failed under the disaster proclamation signed by then George W. Bush.
The most vulnerable time for the federal government is the time it is attached to any state following a declared disaster. It can be seized by a constituent. James McGee Jr. did just that in June, 2007. One of the criteria that had to be met was, He had to remain alive and move up through the federal court system. Out of hundreds of attempts to find counsel throughout the state, no members of the MS state bar would agree to assist and stand up against a state entity.
James McGee Jr. had never been arrested nor had he ever been convicted of any crime. He was a caretaker of two terminally ill family members.
James McGee Jr.: November 18th 1964 ~ October 25th 2012
A victim of hate from his community,he ordered a reverse to the investigation in 2007.
Hurricane Katrina strikes the MS Gulf Coast.
Federal officer #1 who is on the ground to set the state up so that the disaster proclamation can be attached arrived at the damaged address. He identified himself as a housing inspector and assessed damages. He had a conversation with James McGee Jr. in the driveway. He had the power and authorization to clear his name in the computer but could not secure him to the application. He was ordered out of the state to another disaster location. This order was given to him by federal officer # 2. FO#1 said he could not get any of the 13 local agents in the disaster recovery office to secure his name to the application. All 13 refused.
Federal officer #1 authorized the placement of an emergency travel trailer at the damaged address. He said to only make the emergency repairs that are authorized to the damaged home. It appears to be a total loss.
A Mississippi Emergency Management Agency official came to the damaged address around the 21 month mark and went far beyond their authority when they ordered about $ 1,500.00 in additional repairs to the mobile home and said to "call" FEMA when those repairs were complete. They were not housing inspectors and were not authorized to order any repairs. The official stated she got her orders from her supervisor. They were not worried about any emergency medical needs for Mrs. McGee.. These actions brought the timeframe to 22 months at which time, MS~FEMA allowed the federal investigator to go and attempt to make the arrest that was ordered by former Gov. Haley Barbour. (the executive order he issued). This order was based on reports from MS~FEMA that could NOT be substantiated.
Mississippi FEMA stated in a federal report to FEMA that, federal officer # 1 was a sub contractor. It is understood that this officer was assaulted physically/verbally by at least one of the thirteen FEMA agents in the local disaster recovery office in Poplarville. This one FEMA agent was terminated with a "no rehire" placed in his personnel file. He was the same constituent that was married into the family that launched this entire act of hate. There's no proof yet on the reason of the termination of this employee. It may be in relation to his involvement with this case, or some other wrongdoing. Federal officer #1 wore many different hats. He was the first boots on the ground in Jackson within a few days after landfall.
His orders were to prepare the state for the signed disaster proclamation to be attached by federal officer #2 who at the time was wrapping up FEMA business in Florida.

The evidence is secure and federal witnesses will testify.
