Car stolen with baby trapped inside ends in non-fatal shooting of suspect

Light Sabres and PS4 Ultimate Fighting – drug trafficking and murder is fun until somebody loses a baby

by Timothy Charles Holmseth on February 4, 2017, 10:41 A.M. CST

Will the ‘baby caught in the stolen car’ case be the event that wakes up North Dakotans and Minnesotans to the public safety issue being created by drug trafficking within the ranks of their own law enforcement agencies?

Let’s break it down.

The Associated Press is reporting the manhunt for Daniel Michael Two Hearts has ended. Two Hearts was reportedly airlifted to the hospital after he shot himself during a hostage situation in Devil’s Lake, North Dakota – resulting in a non-fatal wound.

Two Hearts, 23, reportedly became involved in an extended pursuit that began around 9:30 p.m. on Thursday when a North Dakota State Trooper attempted to stop him on Interstate 29 near Grand Forks for a ‘loud muffler’.

Two Hearts reportedly fled and eventually fired shots at police with a 9mm in what became a multi-county pursuit that involved Two Hearts stealing several different vehicles – one with a baby in it.

Two other individuals that were with Two Hearts were arrested and methamphetamine was reportedly found in the vehicle.

North Dakota court records show Two Hearts is charged with ‘Attempted Murder’.

Two Hearts has an extensive criminal record that involves offenses such as theft, burglary, minor drug charges, and traffic violations.

WAS TWO HEARTS WORKING FOR LAW ENFORCEMENT?

But there is one particular case that stands out.

In March, 2015, Two Hearts was charged in Burleigh County with three counts including a Class C felony drug charge.

However…

On April 17, 2015, less than a month later, the charges were completely dismissed.

What is relevant about that?

I’ll tell you.

Two Hearts certainly reached some kind of a deal with the government to have his criminal charges dropped. That makes it very likely Two Hearts was working for/with law enforcement.

So…

Why was Two Hearts so terrified and determined to get away Thursday when a State Trooper attempted to pull him over?

Let’s get some perspective using another very recent case in Grand Forks.

On Tuesday, January 31, 2017, Dean Allen Vondal-Rinde, 34, was charged with delivery of a controlled substance, a Class AA felony. Court records show the Affidavit for his arrest that was filed Tuesday was the first activity ever on the case.

Vondal-Rinde’s charges are based upon a ‘controlled buy’ arranged by the Grand Forks Narcotics Task Force agents that took place near the Ralph Engelstad arena on September 20, 2016.

Here’s the question, folks.

Why did law enforcement wait until February, 2017, to charge Vondal-Rinde with a crime he committed in September, 2016?

Persons charged with a Class AA felony in North Dakota may be sentenced to life in prison if convicted.

Law enforcement claims to have electronic data/evidence that proves Vondal-Rinde committed the crime.

So…

Here’s what that really means.

Drug task-force cops had evidence on a man that could put him away for the rest of his life and there was NO RECORD OF IT for five months.

So…

Here’s the question that creates…

What was Vondal-Rinde doing between September and February while shadowy people secretly held his life in their hands?

Probably anything they told him to do – wouldn’t you?

Vondal-Rinde was ripe for blackmail and extortion by faceless and nameless shadow people that call themselves ‘Task Force Agents’.

The facts and circumstnaces surrounding Two Hearts also indicate he may have been involved on some level with law enforcement.

DRUGS, FLEEING THE POLICE, AND PEOPLE GETTING SHOT IN NORTH DAKOTA

The Daniel Two Hearts situation, which involves Two-Hearts fleeing a traffic stop, closely mimics the pursuit and shooting of David James Elliott in February, 2015.

Much like Two Hearts, Elliott inexplicably fled when a police officer attempted to pull him over for a minor traffic offense. Elliott told police he had taken enough pills to kill himself, which he claimed was his intention. However, he did not die from the drugs he ingested, which may mean he over-stated his consumption.

Two Hearts, too, also unsuccessfully attempted suicide.

Something clearly had both men scared to death.

Elliott, who was unarmed, was shot in the head by a UND police officer in the Emergency Room parking lot of Altru hospital in Grand Forks where he had arranged to meet a GFPD officer that he had been talking to during a two hour 911 call.

Thousands of pills were found in Elliott’s pick-up truck.

Methamphetamine was reportedly found in Two Heart’s vehcile.

But watch this.

911 call records reveal Elliott told police during the two hour pursuit, which went up and down Interstate 29, that he believed Lauren Wild, the former Sheriff of Walsh County was following him (Wild is the disgraced former Sheriff that was sued by a deputy in federal court and was not even the Sheriff at the time) and would surely harm him if he pulled over.

But there is even a bigger problem here that may require the FBI to sort out.

Walsh County Sheriff Ron Jurgens told Write Into Action that Walsh County played no role whatsoever in the Elliott pursuit. “Walsh County had no involvement with the chase or anything involving that case,” Jurgens said.

However, according to BCI investigative files a Walsh County “deputy” was involved.

So which is it?

The public was never even supposed to know about Wild’s involvement and only learned about it after Write Into Action exclusively obtained BCI interviews with David Elliott’s wife, Jennifer Elliott, and the 911 call recording from the North Dakota Attorney General’s Office (Grand Forks County PSAP deleted their copy).

BCI interviews reveal Jennifer Elliott and her mother-in-law, Margaret Dolan, said their family was friends with Wild. Jennifer Elliott and Dolan further told BCI agents that Wild claimed, after the shooting, that Jerad Braaten, the UND police officer that shot David Elliott, had been kicked out of the Grafton Police Department.

But Grafton Police Chief Anthony Dumas told Write Into Action that Braaten was never employed there.

Indeed – a former North Dakota disgraced county sheriff had involved himself on some level in a midnight pursuit and shooting that involved drugs.

Write Into Action recently obtained never before seen video of the David Elliott shooting and there is no doubt whatsoever the shooting was an attempted murder that was covered up by Grand Forks County States Attorney David Jones and other law enforcement Department heads.

Write Into Action will be showing the public the video in the near future.

The integrity of the BCI investigation into the David Elliott shooting is such a complete and absurd joke that a BCI agent, Michael Ness, is his heard telling Braaten that his body-cam was found underneath his squad car – noting to Braaten it must have fallen under the car. Write Into Action obtained the body-cam file, which seemed tampered-with, unresponsive, and partially disabled. While the camera captured no meaningful video – the camera lens briefly captures the ‘sky’ amidst a swirling motion as the camera unit is clearly being thrown under the UND squad car well after the shooting.

Isolated events?

No.

Not a chance, folks.

In June, 2016, Clifford Edward Monteith IIII, was shot by Brad Bowman, a Pembina County deputy. The shooting occurred on a deserted highway late at night where Bowman and Monteith allegedly fought until Monteith was tazed and shot and then escaped in a vehicle.

The meeting/interaction between Monteith and Bowman was not even the result of a traffic stop. Bowman told the BCI he followed Monteith’s vehicle and then got out to talk to Monteith during a “walk and talk”.

During his interview with BCI agents, Bowman describes a fight that took place; how he escaped Monteith’s grasp; and a knife that he thinks he might have seen.

THE LIGHT SABRE AND VIDEO GAME FIGHTING

“I thought that I saw a large object omitting from his right hand,” Bowman said. When asked by a BCI agent to explain what he meant by something omitting from Monteith’s hand, Bowman giggled and said, “Just, like a light sabre coming out [laughing] you know what I mean. You know coming from his hand.”

Bowman’s careful words indicated he did not want to flat out lie about seeing a knife.

Bowman said Monteith had a hold of his carrier vest during their physical fight and explained how he escaped. “I play this UFC game on PS4 you know. And one of the moves to get out of the bottom – you put your foot on the guy’s leg – I obviously wasn’t thinking of this but it must’ve been like from memory. But I put my left foot on his right leg and I started pushing myself like up away…” Bowman said, explaining how he escaped by slipping from his carrier vest – leaving the carrier vest on the road.

Now watch this.

Sara Ramos Letexier, who lived right near where the shooting occurred, was the only objectively independent and credible witness to the Bowman/Monteith shooting scene.

Letexier told Write Into Action she pulled up on the scene on her way home from work and that the version of events presented to the public by law enforcement was absolutely NOT what she saw.

Letexier told WDAZ and Write Into Action that she observed Monteith laying “crumpled’ on the highway when she pulled up in her car (although the official version was that Monteith had already fled in a vehicle by that time).

Letexier said she went home – and then she then heard a gunshot after she got home.

Letexier said Pembina County State’s Attorney Ryan Bialis did not even talk to her.

Bialis told Write Into Action the BCI questioned Letexier on his behalf. He suggested the BCI told him that Letexier was mistaken in her observations. Bialis said Letexier mistook Bowman’s ‘carrier vest’ as Monteith’s body.

Bowman/Monteith police shooting scene. Deputy Brad Bowman told BCI he shot Monteith inside the police vehicle because Monteith had a knife. Note marker number five (5) that shows a knife far away from the vehicle. Pembina County State's Attorney Ryan Bialis said witness Sara Ramos Letexier was mistaken when she believed she witnessed a man (Clifford Edward Monteith III - 6' 3" - 214 lbs) laying on the highway. Bialis said Letexier actually saw Bowman's carrier vest (shown above)

However…

Write Into Action has reviewed the BCI interview with Letexier, as well as the file on the case, and no such opinion is stated by the BCI.

But – we sure got a nice full explanation from Bowman about how he used a video game move to escape from his carrier vest, which was then left lying on the highway, after he was attacked by a guy with a light sabre.

Cute, eh?

Is there more?

Yeah – this is North Dakota.

In January, 2017, Colt Allery, a Rolette County deputy, and Melvin DeLong, a car thief suspect (sound familiar?), were both shot and killed in a wild gun fight that involved three other deputies out in the middle of nowhere (sound familiar?).

DeLong, of course, too, had an extensive criminal history.

Even before authorities could officially confirm there had been a fatal shooting in Rolette County on Wednesday, January 18, KFRY-TV reported authorities said “the public is not in danger”.

Wow.

But guess what.

Two days later the Rolette County Courthouse was locked down for “security reasons”.

Then…

On Sunday, January 23, an ‘intruder’ was shot and killed in a home in Rolette County.

Write Into Action has contacted Rolette County Sheriff Gerald Medrud several times to learn why the courthouse was shut down but he does not reply.

In North Dakota and Minnesota, drug trafficking and murder is always fun until somebody loses a baby.

Wednesday’s police shooting also comes in the direct wake of Write Into Action’s expositive report that former Walsh County Sheriff Lauren Wild was allegedly involved in the pursuit of David James Elliott in 2015.

Elliott was deadly afraid of Wild and thought he was going to be harmed. However, Wild was retired at the time of the Elliott pursuit and would have no business being involved in a midnight pursuit, which ended in Elliott being shot.

BCI investigators found “thousands of pills” in Elliott’s truck. David Elliott’s wife, Jennifer Elliott, told BCI investigators the pills were all coming from Altru Hospital doctors.

Write Into Action has obtained dash-cam video from a Grand Forks County Sheriff’s vehicle that shows the shooting of David Elliott did not happen the way it was reported.

The shooting of David Elliott appears to have been a planned hit being carried out by rookie UND police officer Jerad Braaten.

Grand Forks County States Attorney David Jones, without a doubt, completely lied to the public about the David Elliott shooting when he deemed it justified.

CAITLIN JENNA ERICKSON HOMICIDE

Write Into Action obtained video of police-cam evidence regarding the death of Caitlin Jenna Erickson, who died at the same time the David Elliott was occurring. Erickson’s next door neighbor, Desiree Gomez, heard Erickson and Mario Parsons (the man she was with) shouting and arguing for about a half an hour amidst banging sounds in the bathroom.

Parson told police everything was fine when he left and when he returned Erickson was dead. Write Into Action believes the GFPD has engaged in a deliberate cover-up of Erickson’s death.

PEMBINA COUNTY SHOOTING

Write Into Action interviewed the only witness to the shooting scene of Clifford Edward Monteith III, who was shot by Pembina County Deputy Brad Bowman. Sara Letexier said she saw pulled up on the scene and saw Monteith lying on the highway although he was supposedly miles away at that point. She said she then heard another gunshot.

The David James Elliott pursuit and shooting

  • David James Elliott telephoned Grand Forks PSAP (911) almost immediately after GFPD Dan Harvala attempted to pull him over for running a red light.

He stayed on 911 with a police officer, GFPD officer Matthew Bullinger, for some two hours until he was shot while holding the phone.
  • David Elliott made arrangements to meet GFPD officer Matthew Bullinger at Altru. After arriving in front of the E/R David Elliott is seen pointing in the direction where UND officer Jerad Braaten is approaching him. He fled again on four flat tires and was shot through his back window by Jerad Braaten.

  • Jerad Braaten’s body-cam was found underneath his squad car where he tried to hide it.
  • Jerad Braaten did not put his body-cam on his shirt until a few minutes before he joined the pursuit and shot David Elliott (although he had supposedly been on-duty for hours).
  • Jerad Braaten had UNDPD intern Heather Hopkins put the body-cam on his shirt, which was placed on him improperly and captured no visual (except the moment it’s thrown under the car).
  • After the shooting, the audio portion of Jerad Braaten’s body-cam reveals he asked Heather Hopkins if she saw David Elliott try to run a police officer over. Hopkins promptly replied yes. Braaten then told her he would need a witness statement confirming it and she said she would give it. However, when Hopkins was interviewed by the BCI she balked, and said she didn’t see what happened.

  • Video showing what happened atop the Columbia Road Bridge has been redacted.
  • Videos obtained by Write Into Action reveal the time-stamps on the dash-cams do not even remotely match the events taking place on the officer body-cams.
  • David Elliot was shot three times in the head and his ear drum was blown out. Two of his fingers were shot off but re-attached.
  • After being hired by the GFPD, Jerad Braaten was at the scene of a fireworks accident in Grand Forks where a man’s fingers were blown off. The fingers disappeared. They were found later on a picnic table in East Grand Forks.

The following is my investigative opinion.

  • It is my investigative opinion that Jerad Braaten sounds like a psychopath when he is talking to Heather Hopkins.
  • It is my opinion Jerad Braaten may have taken the fingers from the fireworks scene and kept them. He may have placed them in the Red River Valley Campground as a trophy of what he did to David Elliott and/or an ominous message to the drug trafficking underworld.

Another suspicious death in Grand Forks: GFPD has lost its credibility to conduct homicide investigations

by Timothy Charles Holmseth on January 9, 2017, 10:42 P.M. CST

The Grand Forks Police Department (GFPD) is investigating an unattended death that has been described as suspicious.

First responders were dispatched to the 1100 block of North 55th Street on Saturday at approximately 4 p.m. Lt. Brett Johnson, GFPD, identified the deceased female as 24-year-old Kristen Guillemette.

Grand Forks citizens should have ZERO FAITH in this investigation.

Here’s why.

On February 27, 2015 the GFPD responded to the unattended death of Caitlin Jenna Erickson.

Write Into Action obtained police files and body-cam from the Erickson case. The reason Write Into Action became interested in the Erickson death was because it happened in the exact same time window as the pursuit and shooting of David James Elliott.

THE HOMICIDE OF CAITLIN JENNA ERICKSON

Caitlin Jenna Erickson

Caitlin Jenna Erickson

On February 27, 2015, shortly after 10 P.M., GFPD responded to a call for assistance made by a man named Mario Parson.

Parson told police that he was with Caitlin Erickson in the hours before her death. He said she was trying to obtain some money at a pawn shop. He said he left her at her apartment to go take care of some business that involved money. He said Erickson was fine when he left. He said that when he returned Erickson was unconscious – never to be revived.

What Parson told the police was a total lie.

Erickson’s next door neighbor in the apartment complex, Desiree Gomez, told police she heard fighting and arguing next door. She said she heard banging around in the bathroom and the shower turning off and on. She identified the two voices as being male and female – she identified the female voice as Erickson and the male voice as Parson.

Body-cam of GFPD interviewing Gomez reveals the officer was already telling Gomez that everything appeared innocent.

It is impossible the GFPD officer could have been coming to that conclusion when a witness and her husband are standing in front of him telling him they heard fighting and banging around at the time of the death.

This is really sick, folks.

Write Into Action attempted to follow up on Parson’s alibis, but the GFPD did not even use real or entire names of Parson’s alibis in their reports. In one instance the interviewing officer made sure to not reveal an alibi’s name by calling him “the dude”.

This is really, really sick, folks.

It was a cover-up that is linked to pills, medications, and drugs.

Here’s the deal.

The GFPD (and other law enforcement) is in collusion with the Grand Forks Herald to cover up drug trafficking and other crimes.

This is not rocket science.

Erickson’s death involved pills and medication.

 “I then looked around the apartment to see what the female might have taken. Cpl. Buzzo found empty pill bottles on the end tables in the living room next to the couch. I again spoke with Parson who said that the female, Caitlin Erickson, said something about taking “Benzos.” 
– GFPD Cpl. W. Holtz

“I yelled at Mario from the bedroom to the living room and asked him what kind of medication Caitlin had been taking. He stated she had taken pain medications and heroin in the past. He did not know for sure if she had taken narcotics on this occasion” 
– GFPD Officer Wes Vert

“A quick look of the apartment only revealed a small baggie of pills located on the kitchen counter.” 
– GFPD Sgt. W. Wyatt

“He stated that he knew the victim had a drinking problem and had done drugs in the past.” 
– GFPD Sgt. W. Wyatt

“Parson said that the female had taken some pills.” 
– GFPD Cpl W. Holtz

But watch this and you will see how the police and The Herald are preying upon the gullible public to fool people into believing their bull-shit.

Devoured by demons: Grand Forks woman, 28, dies after battling alcoholism

By Charly Haley / Forum News Service on Mar 22, 2015 at 1:32 p.m.

Go ahead and read it.

You will not see one reference to narcotics, pills, and/or medication, which is exactly what the police found in Erickson’s apartment.

The police reports clearly showed pills were found, and body-cam shows GFPD officers at the scene, inside Erickosn’s apartment, looking at each other very suspiciously and making cryptic statements that something seemed very wrong.

I have the videos, folks.

The responding officers knew.

It appears somebody higher up directed the cover-up (probably scum-bag corrupt Police Chief Mark Nelson).

The bizarre feature story in the Herald is an utterly obnoxious piece of propaganda that is intended to drive into the readers head that Erickson died of alcoholism.

No need to mention Erickson’s use of drugs, pills, or heroin – right???

Why are law enforcement and their propaganda arm – the Grand Forks Herald – trying so hard to cover up pills being found in Erickson’s apartment?

Well…

Let’s see…

While the police officer is interviewing Gomez on body-cam, you can actually hear the radio crosstalk of the police pursuit of David James Elliott that was taking place at the exact same time.

Elliott is the unarmed man that was shot three times in the head in the parking lot of Altru hospital in Grand Forks by a UND police officer.

Visit www.writeintoactiion.com to read about the drug trafficking and bust that occurred at UND that involved multiple members of the football team.

BCI investigation files reveal thousands of medications and pills were found in Elliott’s vehicle after he was shot. During a recorded interview, BCI special agent Michael Ness told David Elliott’s wife, Jennifer Elliott, the pills were in bags.

Jennifer Elliott told the BCI that her husband was getting all his pills from Altru doctors. She was flabbergasted and posed the rhetorical question ‘who prescribes morphine for headaches?’

Here’s what was going on right around the time-window Caitlin Erickson was dying.

David Elliott called 911 after a GFPD officer attempted to pull him over for running a stop sign.

David Elliott fled and was trying to stay away from the police as he talked to an officer over PSAP. He told police he overdosed and was committing suicide. He was simultaneously arranging to meet a police officer at the Emergency Room of Altru hospital.

Despite claiming he wanted to die, David Elliott was deadly afraid of the police and believed he was going to be harmed.

The 911 call reveals he was deadly afraid of former Walsh County Sheriff Lauren Wild and thought Wild was among the police following him.

David Elliott contacted Write Into Action and said UND officer Jerad Braaten, that cop that shot him in front of the Emergency Room, actually tried to shoot him minutes before, while he was atop the Columbia Road Bridge, but his gun jammed.

While the body-cam of the event on the Columbia Road Bridge was redacted by the GFPD, Write Into Action used available files to show what occurred.

View the You Tube…

Nobody was ever charged regarding the thousands of pills found in David Elliott’s truck and the case was closed.

No foul play was found in Erickson’s death and it was closed.

But hey – what’s another huamn life – right Mr. Jones?

“If anyone wants a good laugh this Christmas, they should read anything that Timothy Holmseth has posted. He is a self-claimed award winning “journalist” who has nothing better to do than attempt to give a bad name to people who are more successful than he is. He is the kind of guy who did not receive enough attention from mommy and daddy as a child so he writes absolutely absurd “articles” making false claims about our local law enforcement being involved in a drug trafficking ring so he can get people to pay attention to him for once in his life. Not to mention, these “articles” he writes are being written in the basement of his mother’s house, where he most definitely resides. Take some advice, Timmy, and do something else with your life because you are a terrible “writer” and nobody believes the garbage you are producing anyway.”

I replied.

“Your dad, Mark Nelson, the Grand Forks Chief of Police, hired Jared Braaten, the UND cop that hid his body cam under his squad car after he shot David James Elliott, an unarmed man, in front of the Altru hospital emergency room.  As a journalist, I made a public records request for the police cams from the GFPD officers at the scene. For some reason, your dad then issued a ‘Special Order’ so the videos could be destroyed. And that all reflects poorly on me – how???”

Nelson told me I am not important enough to cause anybody to worry.

He then challenged me to show evidence that a ‘Special Order’ had been issued by GFPD Chief Mark Nelson to get rid of police-cam evidence of the David James Elliott shooting. I posted a copy of the Order on Nelson’s Facebook page, which now appears to have been scrubbed.

Hunter Nelson, an employee at Grand Forks County Corrections, originally began posting about me in March, 2016, where he said I am a “coward” because I am not a police officer.

“Timothy Holmseth posting this extreme leftist garbage. This guy actually thinks he knows what he’s talking about. It’s borderline sad. This guy has nothing better to do with his time than to pretend like he knows how to do a police officer’s job. I wonder if he knows that this man attempted to run over police officers and even rammed squad cars. He believes everything the liberal media says but is too much of a coward to do the job that our police officers do every day. He is pathetic.”

     – Hunter Nelson / Facebook / March 6, 2016

Today, Nelson’s friends joined in and bombarded me with names including vulgarities pertaining to the female anatomy.

I firmly believe this is a public safety issue because organized members of law enforcement and other government agencies are conspiring together, along with the local media, to conceal the truth from the public.

I have confirmed the following through public documents, police records, and BCI post- shooting interviews regarding the David James Elliot pursuit and shooting.

The David James Elliott pursuit and shooting

  • David James Elliott telephoned Grand Forks PSAP (911) almost immediately after GFPD Dan Harvala attempted to pull him over for running a red light. David Elliott had no meaningful criminal history and there is no known reason he would feel compelled to flee at very high speeds. He stayed on 911 with a police officer, GFPD officer Matthew Bullinger, for some two hours until he was shot while holding the phone.
  • David Elliott made arrangements to meet GFPD officer Matthew Bullinger at Altru. After arriving in front of the E/R David Elliott is seen pointing in the direction where UND officer Jerad Braaten is approaching him. He fled again on four flat tires and was shot through his back window by Jerad Braaten.
  • David Elliott was unarmed.
  • David Elliott had thousands of prescription pills in his truck that BCI agent Michael Ness said where in “bags”.
  • Jennifer Elliott, David Elliott’s wife, said all the pills her husband possessed were all coming from Altru doctors.
  •  Grand Forks PSAP deleted the 911 call.
  • UND police officer Jerad Braaten was not scheduled to work on the night he interjected himself into a slow speed pursuit and shot David Elliott.
  • UND police officer Jerad Braaten, a rookie cop on his first job, was inexplicably training an intern (on a night he was not even supposed to work), Heather Hopkins, on the night of the shooting.
  • David Elliott was nearly completely stopped atop the Columbia Road Bridge where he was trying to meet GFPD officer Matthew Bullinger. He continued inching forward as Jerad Braaten was pointing a gun at him.
  • The audio portion of UND police officer Jerad Braaten’s body-cam captured him telling Hopkins he hoped to provoke David Elliott into ramming him.
  • David James Elliott told Write Into Action (Timothy Charles Holmseth) that Jerad Braaten attempted to shoot him minutes before the actual shooting, while atop the Columbia Road Bridge, but his gun jammed.
  • The audio portion of Jerad Braaten’s body-cam reveals a clicking sound on Braaten’s gun that sounds like a misfire atop the Columbia Road Bridge.
  • Jerad Braaten’s dash-cam was never found and/or entered into BCI evidence.
  • Jerad Braaten’s body-cam was found underneath his squad car where he tried to hide it.
  • Jerad Braaten did not put his body-cam on his shirt until a few minutes before he joined the pursuit and shot David Elliott (although he had supposedly been on-duty for hours).
  • Jerad Braaten had UNDPD intern Heather Hopkins put the body-cam on his shirt, which was placed on him improperly and captured no visual (except the moment it’s thrown under the car).
  • After the shooting, the audio portion of Jerad Braaten’s body-cam reveals he asked Heather Hopkins if she saw David Elliott try to run a police officer over. Hopkins promptly replied yes. Braaten then told her he would need a witness statement confirming it and she said she would give it. However, when Hopkins was interviewed by the BCI she balked, and said she didn’t see what happened.
  • GFPD Sgt. Mark Ellingson, the officer that Jerad Braaten said he was worried about, is captured on audio at the scene telling Jerad Braaten he was never in any danger.
  • UNDPD chief Eric Plummer reprimanded Jerad Braaten in writing regarding issues with his police-cams.
  • GFPD chief Mark Nelson subsequently hired Jerad Braaten onto his Department.
  • Videos obtained by Write Into Action have been tampered with by someone using a video editor. For instance – dash-cam from the squad car of GFPD officer Dan Harvala is in clear crisp color on most of the footage. However, the portion that actually shows the shooting in the distance has been converted to black and white which obscures the details.
  • Video showing what happened atop the Columbia Road Bridge has been redacted.
  • Videos obtained by Write Into Action reveal the time-stamps on the dash-cams do not even remotely match the events taking place on the officer body-cams.
  • David Elliot was shot three times in the head and his ear drum was blown out. Two of his fingers were shot off but re-attached.
  • After being hired by the GFPD, Jerad Braaten was at the scene of a fireworks accident in Grand Forks where a man’s fingers were blown off. The fingers disappeared. They were found later on a picnic table in East Grand Forks.

The following is my investigative opinion.

  • It is my investigative opinion that Jerad Braaten sounds like a psychopath when he is talking to Heather Hopkins.
  • It is my opinion Jerad Braaten may have taken the fingers from the fireworks scene and kept them. He may have placed them in the Red River Valley Campground as a trophy of what he did to David Elliott and/or an ominous message to the drug trafficking underworld.
  • It is my opinion GFPD chief Mark Nelson has violated his oath, betrayed the public, and is engaging in extensive efforts to cover up events that involve drug trafficking, shootings, and homicide(s).

EXCLUSIVE: East Grand Forks chief detective named in gang-stalking cult involving local hockey club

Son of former EGFPD officer says federal authorities are in the area

by Timothy Charles Holmseth on December 20, 2016, 10:20 P.M. CST

Jared Rasmussen, the son of retired East Grand Forks police officer Vern Rasmussen, says federal authorities are in the area.

And…

Jared Rasmussen said is being gang-stalked by local fireman, police officers, social services, and members of a local group called the Blue Line Club that is headed by EGFPD chief detective Lt. Rodney Hajicek.

The bizarre activity is only the latest account of citizens being terrorized in the Red River Valley region.

Jared Rasmussen contacted Write Into Action today and said he has been terrorized for a steady month.

“[It’s] the same vehicles – the same people – all the time. This has been going on a month of pure hell,” he said.

“I don’t know if I fucking seen something I wasn’t supposed to but I am going to fucking find out,” he said.

“I know who some of them are – I know where some them work – some of them are firemen on the east side – some of them are cops – some of them are social services,” he said.

Jared Rasmussen said he does not know exactly why he has been targeted but did say his ex-girlfriend told police he is a drug dealer.

Taken at face value, Jared Rasmussen’s allegations are very serious because under no circumstances do ‘fireman’ and ‘hockey parents’ assist law enforcement in investigations and surveillance.

“I got shit on them. I mean my dad was a cop for 33 years. I know what kind of pieces of shit these guys are. I know about a lot of stuff. I know about (Pine to Prairie Task Force Commander Aeisso) Schrage – (former Task Force Commander Scott) Jordheim – I know all these guys,” he said.

His story has credibility.

Jared Rasmussen said he has repeatedly gone to the police department and other agencies and attempted to report what is going on – to no avail.

“I talked to the head of social services in Crookston on the phone. He called me one day. And I told him – I said I was going to go a TV station – and he tried to file a complaint against me to the east side for threatening. I said it was no threat. I’m going call the TV stations for real,” he said.

Jared Rasmussen said he was told he is the subject of an “ongoing investigation”.

“I said ‘when did social services become an investigative service,’” he said, noting he was being followed by social services vehicles late at night.

One event involving EGF Lt. Detective Rodney Hajicek appears to be a text-book move used by government officials to discredit witnesses to serious crimes.

Jared Rasmussen said he went to the EGFPD to talk to Lt. Hajicek who refused to investigate his allegations. Hajicek then attempted to have him committed to a psyche ward.

“He had the hospital – the ambulance – come and pick me up from the police station and told them you’re just so tired – stuff in your head – you’re not really seeing this stuff,” Jared Rasmussen said.

“He put me on a 72 hour hold,” he said.

However, according to Jared Rasmussen, he passed all the evaluation with flying colors. “I went up there. I did their evaluation. Blood test. I walked right out of there,” he said.

Jared Rasmussen said he called up the police after he got out and said “I’m out”.

“I know [Rodney Hajicek] is a liar. I’ve known him for a long time. I’ve known him for many years. And I know what he’ll do to cover shit up,” Jared Rasmussen said.

Jared Rasmussen said he (Jared) can do anything he wants and local law enforcement will never intervene or initiate contact with him.

“I did shitty’s in the parking lot by the Post Office until there was so much smoke you couldn’t see the building and nothing happened – no one came.  I have people with me when I do this stuff,” he said, noting he has filmed much of the gang-stalking.

“I can see them – they have radios in their cars. They have cell phones but they have two-way radios – some of them. I’ve seen them hold it up too high on accident and I seen it in their hand,” he said.

“I went a hundred miles an hour on the highway just to see who would follow me – sure enough they were there,” he said.

Jared Rasmussen described an incident when a white pick-up truck, which he believes is associated with Rodney Hajicek, was tailgating him extremely close. He said he slammed on his breaks and the truck almost him.

He said the incident was witnessed by EGFPD Sgt. Chris Olson. “I tried to stop him after that white pick-up almost rear-ended me. I jumped out of the car and waved at him and he turned the other fucking way,” Jared Rasmussen said.

He said on one occasion after a roadway incident he was approached by a deputy and told to stop to following people. He said he told the deputy to “fuck off” – noting they won’t do anything to him.

According to Jared Rasmussen, he is even being stalked by aircraft that circles him at nearly tree-top level. The allegation involving aircraft is compelling because in August, 2016, a Polk County Deputy was injured after a man shot the Border Patrol helicopter that was buzzing his property as part of a supposed Drug Task Force mission.

Jared Rasmussen said there are weird things going on with his telephone. “I tried to get a hold of the Minnesota police corruption line – you know where I got transferred to – the New York City Sanitation Department,” he said.

“They are all corrupt – every one of these pieces of shit in town,” he said.

“This should not happen to anybody,” he said.

Jared Rasmussen said the police blew it. “You should have had me on your side – but now, fuck off”.

Write Into Action has been receiving reports by people in the Valley Region that allege Hajicek is part of a criminal drug trafficking operation with a cabal of others.

Write Into Action is also receiving reports naming police officers at the Grand Forks Police Department and other agencies.

The people calling are describing creepy surveillance, death threats, rape cover-ups, and murder cover-ups.

Write Into Action will continue to investigate and report.

BCI focused on prescription drugs during police shooting investigation

Altru Hospital and University of North Dakota may have betrayed the public

by Timothy Charles Holmseth on December 20, 2016, 12:17 P.M. CST

Does a police shooting victim’s medical background and prescription drug history have anything to do with whether or not the shooting was justified?

In an undated letter authored by Grand Forks State’s Attorney David Jones, he determined the shooting of David James Elliott by a UND police officer was justified based upon all the evidence he reviewed, which included police-cam evidence.

But nobody has been allowed to see the video that Jones claims clears the cop.

And…

There are new questions being raised in this bizarre North Dakota case that involves drugs – drugs that Attorney Jones knew about – but has never talked about.

The seizure of thousands of bagged pills from the vehicle of David James Elliott on the night he was shot in the head has created those questions.

On February 28, 2015 the North Dakota Bureau of Criminal Investigation (BCI) began an investigation into the police shooting of David James Elliott by a University of North Dakota police officer in the Emergency Room parking lot of Altru hospital.

David Elliott was unarmed and on the telephone with a Grand Forks police officer, and had arranged to meet that officer at Altru Hospital, when he was shot multiple times by a rookie UND campus cop he had been trying to stay from during a slow speed pursuit.

Audio from the inside of the UND squad car later revealed the officer, Jerad Braaten, was diabolically and cynically hoping to cause a collision with David Elliott – it also captures what David Elliott says is the sound of Braaten attempting to shoot David Elliott several minutes before the actual shooting – but his gun jammed.

Questions are rapidly developing in this case regarding what was really going on between David Elliott, the University of North Dakota, Altru Hospital, and multiple law enforcement agencies.

altru-und

And – it’s all about drugs.

Here’s why.

The region has been saturated with drug use, fatal overdoses, and mysterious unattended deaths as result of narcotics that are flooding into the area.

BCI records show ‘thousands of pills’ were found in David Elliott’s pick-up truck after he was shot – the pills were in bags.

“We found three bags of pills,” said SA Michael Ness during his interview with David Elliott’s wife, Jennifer Elliott, an employee in the Accounts Payable department at UND.

“That’ what Altru – he gets it all from doctors. It’s all coming from doctors at Altru,” Jennifer Elliott said.

Jennifer Elliott said she repeatedly tried to curtail the dispensing of drugs to her husband by Altru. She told investigators she confronted Barbara Norman, a clinical nurse specialist about it.

“He keeps coming here and you (Barb Norman) keep prescribing stuff – so I said what’s your plan – what’s your plan here – what, were going to come here every three months and your going sit and go oh you need this one – okay we’ll print that one – what else do you need? Oh you out of this one? Oh okay were going to print that one. Okay and after sitting and watching her do that for twenty minutes I start to argue with her and say what’s your plan – do you have a plan here for him more than just to give out drugs,” Jennifer Elliott said.

Jennifer Elliott said Dr. Matthew Roller, a neurologist at Altru, looked at David Elliott’s prescription list and was “appalled” at what he saw in David Elliott’s chart.

The drug dispensing appeared weird to Jennifer Elliott.

“Now, [my husband David Elliott will] always say don’t argue with them before we get in there – don’t argue with the doctor,” Jennifer Elliott said.

Margaret Dolan, Jennifer Elliott’s mother, was at the BCI interview. “The pain management doctor in Bemidji when he would go there – he didn’t want her there – he made it very clear that he did not want her at those appointments,” Dolan said.

Ness and Jennifer Elliott discussed prescription drug documentation regarding David Elliott. “I ran the same thing – it’s called a PDMP – prescription drug monitoring on a report – I just went back a year and it’s like five pages long,” Ness said.

“Isn’t one Benzo enough? Why three? Who takes morphine for headaches?” Jennifer Elliott said.

BCI investigator Ness was greatly focused on obtaining David Elliott’s medical records and wanted Jennifer Elliott to sign a release.

“Be important to look at all his records to see kind of where were at – why were at where we are now today,” SA Ness said.

“I think it’s important. I really do,” SA Ness said.

“Important for what?” Jennifer Elliott replied.

“Just to kind of figure out why were at where were at,” Ness said.

David James Elliott eventually pled guilty to traffic/driving related offenses and the police shooting case has since been closed.

No more was ever heard about the prescription drug issue.

Write Into Action continues to focus on evidence that shows a possible connection between the drug over-dose death (murder cover-up by GFPD) of Caitlin Jenna Erickson, which occurred in Grand Forks at the same time police were chasing David Elliott.

Write Into Action also reported a major drug trafficking incident that hit the UND football team that went un-reported by the local corporate hoax media.

Interestingly…

Jennifer Elliott said UND Police Chief Eric Plummer told her that his department was trying to reach David Elliott by telephone the night he was shot.

Disturbingly…

Grand Forks Police Chief Mark Nelson issued a ‘Special Order’ so his Department could delete GFPD videos after Write Into Action initiated it’s journalistic investigation.

Write Into Action is presently battling the ND AG for the police videos after AG Wayne Stenehjem called upon Marsy’s Law (a victim’s rights law) to stall my investigation.

Casey Anthony investigator involved in discovery of “bloody sheet” and ‘El Chapo’

by Timothy Charles Holmseth on May 30, 2016, 11:56 A.M. CST

Dominic Casey, the private investigator who once worked for Casey Anthony, has stated in an Affidavit to the Florida Court that George, Cindy and Lee Anthony me with a convicted drug trafficker for the Mexican Drug Lord “El Chapo.”

“On the way to meet the attorney they were taken to meet Pete (Pedro) Beneviedes, a convicted drug trafficker and money launderer for “El Chapo” – the Mexican Drug Lord and head of the Sinaloa Cartel,” PI Casey said.

El Chapo

El Chapo

The meeting involved “reward money”.

In 2009, William Staubs (a.k.a. Cobra), Rev. Richard Grund’s private investigator that interjected himself into the HaLeigh Cummings kidnapping investigation, told Jessica Clark of First Coast News that his bills were paying paid by a “reformed drug dealer from Miami”.

The implications of Dominic Casey’s revelations about El Chap have a profound effect on the evidence stream connecting the Caylee Anthony murder with the HaLeigh Cummings kidnapping, which includes a “bloody sheet” taken into police evidence.

THE BLOODY SHEET

Although never reported by the news, PI Casey was heavily involved in the investigation into the kidnapping of HaLeigh Cummings. The five year-old from Satsuma, Florida girl was reported missing from her father’s home on February 10, 2009.

PI Casey was involved in the location of a “bloody sheet” found in the woods and taken into evidence by law enforcement. He was working with Detective Peggy Cone, the lead detective on the HaLeigh Cummings Task Force at the time.

PI Casey and Det. Cone had another private investigator, William Staubs (a.k.a. Cobra), under surveillance.

William Staubs (Cobra) interjected himself into the HaLeigh Cummings kidnapping investigation at the direction of Rev. Richard Grund (the father of Casey Anthony’s former fiancé Jesse Grund.)

Grund told both the Orange County Sheriff’s Office detectives and Write Into Action there was a conspiracy to plant semen and pubic hair on Caylee Anthony’s body that would implicate Jesse Grund.

The suspicious assertion by Rev. Grund and Cobra about semen and pubic hair being planted on little Caylee’s remains were dwarfed by the bizarre ‘funding’ of Cobra’s involvement in the HaLeigh Cummings kidnapping investigation by a “drug dealer from Miami”.

And…a bloody sheet.

During a recorded interview with Write Into Action, Cobra recalled the moment he, his son Matthew Staubs, and a man named Jeremiah Regan found a bloody sheet in the woods.

“[Dominic Casey] called up Jeremiah Regan on the phone and told him to step away from me. Well when he answered the phone, Jeremiah looked dead at me – my eyes met his eyes and he looked to the ground. And he turned around and he walked off talking on the phone,” Staubs said.

William Staubs said he and his son then left the scene before the police arrived.

“As we were riding up to Mee Maw from the HaLeigh Bug Center I said to [Matthew Staubs] ‘if I’m correct – within about a minute – two minutes – I give them three minutes, this is pretty hot – he’s ‘what dad what’ – I said the cops car as going to go blazing down this fucking road right here – you watch and see. And all of a sudden there goes two cop cars,’” William Staubs said.

William Staubs said Regan was in one of the cars and Matthew Staubs asked him why they had “Jeremiah” in custody.

“I said they don’t have Jeremiah son. There taking Jeremiah over there to that part of the woods to recover that fucking sheet,” Staubs said.

Staubs talked to Regan after the sheet was taken into evidence and asked him who called him on the phone.

“He said that was Dominic Casey. I said what did Dominic Casey say to you? He said step away from Cobra right now. That means that he is – that means that he is watching some place. He said to step away from you and call this lady Peggy Cone. I said who the fuck is Peggy Cone. She’s a detective. I said is that the detective that came and picked you up. He goes ‘yep.’ I said what did she say to you bro? She said I needed to stay away from you or I was going to find myself in jail with you and he started shaking. He said remember that sheet I told you was evidence. I said yeah. He said ‘she recovered it’. I said she did what? I said she took it into custody – I told you it was blood,” Staubs said.
