Fargo Friendly Fire Cover Up: What was in the bag, Mr. Burdick?

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

by Timothy Charles Holmseth on March 15, 2017, 6:02 P.M. CST

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?

Cass County States Attorney Birch Burdick

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).

Okay…

The BCI agent reviewed Attachment #19, which was involved Detective Mark Voigtschild.

So…

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.

Fargo police shooting – friendly fire cover-up

Truth to be released to public

by Timothy Charles Holmseth on March 14, 2017, 10:32 P.M. CST

The American public has been lied to about who fired the shot that killed Fargo Police Officer Jason Moszer.

Officer Jason Moszer was shot and killed in the line of duty on February 10, 2016 after responding to a Fargo, North Dakota residence where a domestic incident had intensified, firearms became involved and a stand-off ensued.

Officer Moszer responded to 308 9th Avenue North along with other local police officers from agencies including the Red River Valley SWAT Team, Cass County Sheriff’s Department and North Dakota Highway Patrol.

The WDAY-TV news clip that I am going to show you, will demonstrate that Forum Communications in conjunction with ABC, broadcast that Marcus Schumacher – the man that stood off against police in his home – is the person that shot and killed Officer Jason Moszer.

The clip is relatively short – following the clip I will tell you what’s really going on.

While you observed the WDAY news presenter, at the introduction of the segment, categorically state Marcus Schumacher shot and killed Officer Jason Moszer, you will note that Cass County State’s Attorney Birch Burdick, who sat down with WDAY for a very formal interview regarding the case, never stated, on behalf of the State, that Marcus Schumacher shot and killed Officer Jason Moszer.

That’s because he didn’t.

However – Attorney Burdick cryptically telegraphed the truth about what happened when he said, “Schumacher was putting a lot of people at risk. He fired a lot”.

Based upon tips from the public, Write Into Action has initiated an independent journalistic investigation into the Moszer/Schumacher shooting, which includes the entire investigation file of the North Dakota Bureau of Criminal Investigation.

Write Into Action reached out to Attorney Burdick and asked the State Prosecutor if he stood by the statement made by WDAY and himself during their coordinated news story.

It was important Attorney Burdick be asked the question because the WDAY news story accused Marcus Schumacher of murder.

Attorney Burdick responded to say that he felt my questions were primarily directed to the North Dakota Bureau of Criminal Investigation.

I advised Attorney Burdick that I am aware all final decisions in criminal cases are made by the State’s Attorney, and that according to BCI Special Agent Michael Ness, the BCI processes the scene and conducts interviews but provides no opinion regarding the facts and has no influence over prosecutorial decisions.

Attorney Burdick, now, will not state whether or not he stands by the assertion that Marcus Schumacher.

That’s because Marcus Schumacher did not commit murder.

The news story reported that all the details of the night had not yet been released.

That’s right.

And that’s going to change.

Write Into Action is preparing the evidence of what happened and will be presenting it to the public once it’s prepared.

Fargo police shooting a friendly fire cover-up?

Well…watch closely now…you’ll observe a curious exchange of energy

by Timothy Charles Holmseth on March 13, 2017, 11:03 P.M. CST

UPDATE: I was contacted by Cass County States Attorney Birch Burdick and Forum Communications following my initial press release. We are now at the next step. I have confronted the before-mentioned regarding televised statements by WDAY regarding Attorney Burdick saying Marcus Schumacher killed Fargo Police Officer Jason Moszer.

Do you believe WDAY’s reporting is true?

Do believe Attorney Burdick make that statement?

Do you believe Marcus Schumacher is the person that shot Officer Moszer?

Or, was WDAY’s reporting what Donald Trump would call “very fake news”?

Well…watch closely now.

by Timothy Charles Holmseth on March 12, 2017, 12:28 P.M. CST

Write Into Action is investigating tips and information that indicates Fargo Police Officer Jason Moszer was not shot and killed by Marcus Schumacher on February 10, 2016.

Evidence suggests Officer Moszer was accidently shot by a police officer.

Write Into Action has issued an inquiry comprised of three questions to the Office of North Dakota Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem and Cass County States Attorney Birch Birdick.

Abracadabra! – BCI investigation into police shooting of unarmed man contains impossibilities and absurdities

Wayne Stenehjem’s BCI uses magic to justify police shooting

ND AG Wayne Stenehjem

David James Elliott was shot by UND Police Officer Jared Braaten at 12:47 A.M., 2015 in the Altru hospital emergency room parking lot in Grand Forks, North Dakota.

Braaten shot Elliott six times, including three times in the head, because Elliott bumped into Grand Forks County Sheriff’s Sgt. Andy Schneider’s SUV.

But…

Wait…

Abracadabra . . .

According to investigative interviews by the North Dakota Bureau of Criminal Bureau Investigation (BCI), Sgt. Schneider was eating at the Grand Forks Air Force Base with GFSO deputy Nathan Moen, while Elliott was being shot.

The BCI investigation into the police shooting of the unarmed man contains impossibilities and absurdities that are wholly unacceptable.

“Grand Forks Sheriff’s Department Deputy Nate Moen indicated that he and Grand Forks Sheriff’s Department Sergeant Andy Schneider ate lunch at the Grand Forks Air Force Base at approximately 11:55 p.m.,” said BCI special agent Michael J. Ness.

“Grand Forks Sheriff’s Department Deputy Nate Moen and Grand Forks Sheriff’s Department Sergeant Andy Schneider left the Grand Forks Air Force Base at approximately 12:55 a.m.,” Ness said.

But the egregiousness of the discrepancies is even worse than that.

The BCI interviews record Schneider and Moen were both involved in pursuing Elliott down I-29 in separate vehicles during the same time they were supposedly eating at the GFAB.

Another bizarre entry by Ness said, “Grand Forks Sheriff’s Department Deputy Nate Moen and Grand Forks Sheriff’s Department Sergeant Andy Schneider went to the Grand Forks Air Force Base in Grand Forks, North Dakota, at approximately 11:00 p.m., to have dinner.”

Dash cam video from Grand Forks Police Department officer Dan Harvala’s squad car captured  during the initial pursuit of David James Elliot, shows Grand Forks County Sheriff’s Sgt. Andy Schneider standing by the side of I-29 near Thompson, North Dakota at 11:09 P.M., February, 27, 2015.

Sgt. Andy Schneider, GFSO, is seen standing on the side of I-29 at 11:09 P.M., February 27, 2015, after the first pursuit of David James Elliott was terminated. Elliott was shot at 12:47 A.M., February 28, 2015 in the emergency room parking lot of Altru hospital by UND police officer Jared Braaten after Elliott bumped into Schneider's SUV. However, BCI interviews of involved officers after the shooting have Schneider eating dinner at the Grand Forks Air Force Base from 11:55 P.M. to 12:55 A.M.

However, BCI interviews of involved officers after the shooting have Schneider eating dinner at the Grand Forks Air Force Base from 11:55 P.M. to 12:55 A.M.

While it is theoretically possible Schneider left the I-29 location following the termination of the first pursuit at 11:09 P.M., and then traveled to the GFAB to eat dinner with Moen; that version coincides with the two men eating at 11:55 P.M. and leaving at 12:55 A.M.

But – Elliott was shot at 12:47 A.M. for bumping into Schneider’s vehicle in the Altru parking lot – so it’s impossible.

Andy Schneider the night a police officer shot David James Elliott six times, including three times in the head, for hitting Schneider's vehicle. BCI interviews have Schneider eating dinner at the Grand Forks Air Force Base at the same time Elliott was being shot.

BCI interviews have Schneider eating dinner at the Grand Forks Air Force Base at the same time Elliott was being shot.

Thousands of pills were located in Elliott’s vehicle when the BCI executed a search warrant.

No criminal charges were ever brought against Elliott or any other person regarding those drugs.

Write Into Action is investigating the possibility that Elliott had a passenger with him during the first pursuit.

Grand Forks Sheriff’s Department Sergeant Andy Schneider positioned his vehicle at a crossover about one (1) mile north of the Thompson, North Dakota, exit. Grand Forks Sheriff’s Department Sergeant Andy Schneider notified Grand Forks Police Department that he had deployed his spike strips. Grand Forks Sheriff’s Department Sergeant Andy Schneider indicated that Grand Forks Police Department Sergeant Mark Ellingson terminated the pursuit. The Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP) relayed that DAVID ELLIOTT had called 911 and told them that he was going to hurt himself or others if law enforcement did not quit following him. It should be noted that Grand Forks Sheriff’s Department Sergeant Andy Schneider did not have his emergency lights activated and walked into the ditch to avoid getting run into by DAVID ELLIOTT. DAVID ELLIOTT continued southbound on I-29. Grand Forks Sheriff’s Department Deputy Nate Moen and Grand Forks Sheriff’s Department Sergeant Andy Schneider went to the Grand Forks Air Force Base in Grand Forks, North Dakota, at approximately 11:00 p.m., to have dinner.

GFPD records clerk could not provide ‘Time’ of the 911 call she was transcribing

Official narrative regarding police shooting of unarmed man in serious question

by Timothy Charles Holmseth on April 5, 2016, 7:20 A.M. CST

The Grand Forks Police Department (GFPD) records clerk that transcribed the 911 call that preceded the police shooting of David James Elliott, did not know the ‘time’ of the call she was transcribing for an investigative journalist.

It’s kind of important.

The 911 call set into motion a high speed chase, police shooting of an unarmed man, and the subsequent seizure of thousands of pills in the suspect’s vehicle (for which no criminal charges were ever brought).

“The Time was not stated within the PSAP recording of the call therefore I have no way of knowing the exact time of the call,” said Penny Johnson, Records Administration Bureau, GFPD.

Lt. Derik Zimmel, GFPD, said the document provided to Write Into Action “fulfilled” the records request. It’s not known why the GFPD would not consider the actual time of a 911 call to be part of any 911 records request.

Lt. Zimmel, as well as Becky Ault, director of Grand Forks County PSAP, both responded to subsequent requests for clarification – both stated the time of the call was 10:41 P.M., February 27, 2015.

However, the box allotted for “Time” remains empty in the actual transcription record.

Specific times are the key to understanding what occurred – and what did not occur.

Write Into Action’s request was for public records regarding an incident described in the official police shooting investigation conducted by the North Dakota Bureau of Criminal Investigation (BCI) that said, “The cleaning woman inside the bank called in the complaint around 11:30 p.m., to 11:40 p.m.”

Lt. Zimmel said, “No such record exists.”

However – there appears to be a significant event that occurred at 11:30 P.M. on the night in question.

The BCI interview of ND State Trooper Brittany Schmidt said, “Trooper Schmidt stated the original call in regard to this case came in around 11 p.m.”

The BCI report continued, “Trooper Schmidt stated at 11:30 p.m., the vehicle from the earlier pursuit was located in Grand Forks. There was no pursuit at this time.”

The vehicle was located?

No pursuit?

Why?

Another anomalous statement regarding time is found in the BCI interview of GFPD officer Chris Brown who said he witnessed the pursuit at around 10:30 P.M.; which is before the 911 call was even made.

“In regard to the first (1st) pursuit, Grand Forks Police Department Officer Chris Brown said that he was at the Altru Hospital Emergency Room with a female that refused to leave, and a pursuit began at about 10:30 p.m./10:35 p.m. Grand Forks Police Department Officer Chris Brown saw the first (1st) pursuit proceed northbound on South Columbia Road past the Altru Hospital, but he was not involved. Grand Forks Police Department Officer Chris Brown continued with his call at the Altru Hospital Emergency Room until around 11:00 p.m.” the BCI report said.

How did Officer Brown observe a chase that began at 10:30/10:35 P.M. that was going north on Columbia Road past Altru when the pursuit did not begin until shortly before 11 P.M.?

The 11 P.M. start time for the pursuit is verified in a short video clip published by WDAZ TV.

“It started around 11 p.m. Friday February 27th when Grand Forks police tried to pull over a suspicious vehicle. Instead the driver of the vehicle, David Elliot, took off at speeds of more than 60 miles per hour thru a residential neighborhood,” WDAZ reported.

So what pursuit did Brown observe at 10:30/10:35 P.M.?

Write Into Action has identified a myriad of anomalies that call the official narrative in question.

Write Into Action continues to request public records and will report to the public.
