Mr. Burdick – please tell the American people the truth so I don’t have to do it

Is Cass County States Attorney Birch Burdick actively conspiring with the North Dakota Bureau of Criminal Investigation to conceal the truth about who really shot and killed Fargo Police Officer Jason Moszer?
Well, let’s take a look.
On March 26, 2016 WDAY interviewed Burdick and reported he reviewed all the evidence in the Moszer shooting case.
“Cass County State’s Attorney Birch Burdick reviewed everything documented from the night of the stand-off,” WDAY reported.
Well, that’s good.
That means Burdick and Write Into Action are on the same page because we’re looking at the same documents (except Burdick’s are not redacted).
So, let’s take a look.
Burdick reviewed a BCI report that said:
S/A [REDACTED BY BCI] reviewed a one (1) page supplement report from FPD Detective Mark Voigtschild related to this incident. Detective Mark Voigtschild was in the FPD crime scene bus and provided evidence collection equipment to NDBCI agents. Detective Mark Voigtschild’s report is listed as Attachment #19 (please see the attached CD Attachment #1, Fargo PD Reports, for details).
The BCI agent reviewed Attachment #19, which was involved Detective Mark Voigtschild.
Let’s take a look at Attachment #19.
16-9136, Voigtschild Supplement 19
On 02/10/16, at approximately 2130 hours (9:30 P.M.), I, Detective Voigtschild, responded to the staging area behind First Lutheran.
I was in the CSI bus and had provided a bag to a BCI agent for evidence collection. I never saw the collection of the item nor did I see the item which was collected.
End of report.
Yesterday, I reported my journalistic investigation into the Moszer/Schumacher shooting will reveal who really shot Officer Moszer and will be released once it’s completed for publication.
But here are a few things to think about regarding the aforementioned documents.
9:11 P.M. – Officer Jason Moszer is shot
9:23 P.M. – “Officer down” is broadcast
9:26 P.M. – Officer Moszer is delivered to the Sanford Emergency Room
9:30 P.M. – Detective Voigtschild handed a mysterious evidence bag to a BCI agent
Voigtschild does not say ‘WHO’ gave him the evidence bag
Voigtschild does not say ‘WHAT’ was in the evidence bag
Voigtschild does not say ‘WHERE’ he obtained the evidence bag
Voigtschild does not say ‘WHEN’ he obtained the evidence bag
Voigtschild does not say ‘WHY’ he obtained the evidence bag
Voigtschild does not say ‘HOW’ he obtained the evidence bag
But – it was handed to a BCI agent four minutes after Officer Moszer’s mortally wounded body was removed from the alley.
Mr. Burdick – please do the right thing and tell the public what happened so I don’t have to do it.
