Please note that the Bureau's interest in the case has been publicly and officially confirmed by several of the law enforcement agencies involved, who have also confirmed that they provided their files to the FBI.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 20 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Emma Best

Note that despite your prior denials about having these records, not only have numerous police departments officially confirmed you do – so have you. See attached.

FOIPAQUESTIONS@FBI.GOV is not the proper method for submitting appeals pertaining to FOIA requests.

You may file an appeal by writing to the Director, Office of Information Policy (OIP), United States Department of Justice, U.S. Department of Justice, Sixth Floor, 441 G Street, NW
Washington, DC 20001, or you may submit an appeal through OIP’s FOIAonline portal by creating an account on the following web site: https://foiaonline.gov/foiaonline/action/public/home. Your appeal must be postmarked or electronically transmitted within ninety (90) days from the date of the letter in order to be considered timely. If you submit your appeal by mail, both the letter and the envelope should be clearly marked “Freedom of Information Act Appeal.” Please cite the FOIPA Request Number assigned to your request so that it may be easily identified.

You may seek dispute resolution services by contacting the Office of Government Information Services (OGIS) at 877-684-6448, or by emailing ogis@nara.gov.

From: Emma North-Best

I didn't file an appeal. I sent you supplemental information.

Are you confused? Did you see the word "appeal"? I know for a fact that you didn't, as the email's body was preceded by "This is a follow up to a previous request" Do you need a copy of hooked on phonics? Would you like help reading words? I can help you spell it out if you need.

I'll say it again slowly for you since you clearly have comprehension difficulties:

I DID NOT FILE AN APPEAL, YOU HAVE NO RESPONDED TO THIS FOIA, I SENT YOU SUPPLEMENTAL INFORMATION SO YOU COULD LOCATE THE RECORDS MORE EASILY. Sorry to have confused you, you thickheaded excuses for civil servants.

Love, kisses and outrage,

Emma Best

From: Emma North-Best

What's your shipping address? I'll order you a copy of Hooked On Phonics and you can reduce the cost from your next improper attempt to charge me duplication costs. Your inability to process FOIAs in the time the law allows now makes a lot more sense! It's actually impressive that you manage to process any FOIA requests without the ability to read. Don't worry, though, Emma's got you. I'll teach you how to read and write words; that way you won't have to redact the long ones you don't understand anymore or rely on inaccurate form letters!

Seriously, you all must be dumber than half of a brain damaged cat.

I'd love to! But you still haven't given me one. If you sent it the acknowledgment at all, you sent it to the wrong place.

From: Federal Bureau of Investigation

Good morning Ms. Best,

This request is opened under FOIPA Request Number 1444198-000. You received this FOIPA Request Number in our acknowledgment letter dated August 19, 2019. Please advise where we can send a new copy, as you indicated below that it was sent to the incorrect place. Additionally, the supplemental information you emailed has been provided to the assigned analyst.

"You received this FOIPA Request Number" – No, I didn't, because you didn't send it properly. You can see a complete listing of the communications for this request at https://www.muckrock.com/foi/united-states-of-america-10/shooting-sheriffs-saturday-78260/ – you may note the lack of acknowledgment (though again, your reading difficulties which led you to believe an explicitly labeled "follow-up" was an "appeal" may present difficulties here).

You can email the letter to this email address, as you should have done in the first place (you ridiculously and deliberately incompetent office of half-baked cats).

From: Federal Bureau of Investigation

Dear Ms. Best,

The letter was sent electronically in the form of an email and contained the referenced Dept MR Number. We can certainly send you a new copy.

"requests@muckrock.com" is not a valid email address. Use the email address you just used to contact me here.

OMFG. It's like you're incompetent or deliberately obstructing FOIA.

I hope you slip down some icy steps.

And as indicated in my response, that's the wrong address. Send it to the address you are using to correspond with me here.

From: Emma North-Best

I am appealing the integrity of the search in its entirety, as the Bureau has previously confirmed its interest in the case and official emails from many of the police departments involved also not only confirmed this (see attached), but that the Bureau took all of their records on the matter. These emails are a matter of public record. The Bureau cannot possibly have conducted a search competently calculated to locate all potentially responsive records.
