The United States Border Patrol is named as a defendant in a civil lawsuit filed in United States District Court in North Dakota today.

On August 17, 2016, Timothy Charles Holmseth filed a Complaint to the United States District Court – District of North Dakota, against multiple agencies in North Dakota. Holmseth filed the Complaint after receiving paperwork from the North Dakota Court that provided instructions and forms regarding a previous correspondence to the Court pertaining to a lawsuit.

Holmseth, an investigative journalist from East Grand Forks, Minnesota, alleges a multi-agency and multi-jurisdiction conspiracy exists to cover up the true facts and circumstances surrounding the pursuit and shooting of David James Elliott in 2015.

Elliott was unarmed when he was shot by  a University of North Dakota police officer on February 28, 2015.

The lawsuit alleges defendants are violating public records laws; have defrauded Holmseth’s publication Write Into Action; and are actively violating Holmseth’s Constitutional rights under the First Amendment.

According to Holmseth’s Complaint, defendants, including Grand Forks Police Chief Mark Nelson, have conspired to destroy police-cam evidence of the Elliott Event, which includes deliberately hiding the fact that the United States Border Patrol was involved.

“The criminal conspiracy involves, but is not limited to, GFPD officer (former UNDPD officer) Jerad Braaten, UNDPD Chief of Police Eric Plummer, GFPD Chief of Police Mark Nelson, Grand Forks County Sheriff Bob Rost, GFPD Lt. Derik Zimmel, UNDPD Sgt. Danny Weigel, Grand Forks States Attorney David Jones,” the Complaint said.

Holmseth alleges Defendant Grand Forks Police Department (GFPD) altered police body-cam evidence before turning it over, in effort to hide what truly happened the night a University of North Dakota police officer shot David Elliott multiple times in the head in the Altru hospital parking lot.

Holmseth had been actively requesting and paying for public records regarding the shooting until he was notified by Lt. Derik Zimmel on July 11, 2016, Nelson issued a “Special Order’ on June 26, 2016, changing the retention dates for police cam evidence held in GFPD custody.

Holmseth alleges the Special Order by Nelson was made in bad faith to advance a criminal conspiracy to destroy evidence of an attempted murder.

On July 11, 2016 Lt. Derik Zimmel advised Holmseth he had until July 18, 2016 to make any further requests for records and then the records would be “subject to destruction”.

On July 17, 2016, Holmseth submitted a public records request to the City of Grand Forks that said, “Pursuant to all applicable state and federal laws, I am requesting ALL officer body-camera videos; ALL police dash-cam videos; ALL reports, notes, ledgers, transcripts, and other records pertaining to the pursuit and shooting of David James Elliott.”

On July 28, 2016 Holmseth received a letter from Grand Forks City Attorney Howard Swanson advising that no more records would be turned over because they were now deemed legal Discovery.

Holmseth alleges the Elliott shooting was actually a pre-mediated murder and possibly an ordered ‘hit’ that involved drug trafficking through the State of North Dakota.

North Dakota Bureau of Criminal Investigation (BCI) records show the BCI seized “thousands” of pills from Elliott’s vehicle following the bizarre two hour slow speed chase through multiple counties that was all captured on a 107 minute 911 call placed by Elliott – but never heard by the public. Elliott was talking to a GFPD officer during the 911 call.

Holmseth is the only publisher to request any portion of the 107 minute 911 call, which cost over a hundred dollars in fees for just a few minutes of the call.

David James Elliott contacted Holmseth and said law enforcement hid and/or destroyed body-cam evidence that showed police officer Jerad Braaten attempted to shoot him while he was sitting atop the Columbia Road Bridge in Grand Forks.

“What they don’t tell you is that the officer that shot me tried to shoot me at the top of the university bridge were I stopped and was hanging half way out the window with my hands straight out but his gun misfired – so he pulled his gun back on top to dislodge the bullet and they found that bullet there on top of the bridge with nobody taking claim to it until they pulled his finger prints off of the damn thing,” Elliott said.

The first attempted shooting of Elliott by Bratten changes exposes the entire false narrative that was subsequently given to the public because it shows Braaten was stalking Elliott to shoot him.

“When [Jerad Braaten] shot me everyone was yelling ‘cease fire’ and nobody even knew who was firing until it was all done – and the cop that supposedly got drug by my vehicle wasn’t ever in danger – let alone near the driver’s window – and the cop that shot me on video said ‘I thought you were in danger’ and he yells ‘I wasn’t in danger at any given time and was upset,” Elliott said.

Elliott told Holmseth police used “Excessive Force” and the Grand Forks States Attorney’s office told his lawyer, Darla Schuman, they were charging him with felonies so he wouldn’t sue.

The excessive force appears to involve more than the unwarranted shooting.

“There is so much to this whole thing that people will never know or even understand. Heck after the first two to the third shot fired, my pickup was stopped and he just kept on shooting me. He fired 14 times total until his gun was empty and 8 hit me – and a total of ten hit my truck – and two hit the Kidney Dialysis Center way off to the right and two hit the E/R hall way way off to the left,” Elliott said.

“I got shot 8 times – not 6 or 7 – and then after I got shot and was laying on the steering wheel knocked out with blood all over the place and my left hand missing two fingers -two other officers from GFPD ran up to the drivers window and freaken tazed my lifeless body not once but twice – and they’re yelling put your hands up quit resisting as they open the drivers door and my body falls out of the truck like a sack of potatoes,” Elliott said.

“That’s the video nobody has seen – and I have it,” Elliott said.

The following are named as defendants:

  1. City of Grand Forks/Grand Forks Police Department, 122 South 5th Street, Grand Forks, North Dakota
  2. University of North Dakota/University of North Dakota Police  Department, 300 Twamley Hall, 264 Centennial Drive, Grand Forks North Dakota

Judge Donovan Frank
United States Courthouse
316 North Robert Street
STE 100
St. Paul, Minnesota
55101-1460

Honorable Frank,

I am contacting the honorable court to:

  1. Request permission to Petition the U.S. Court
  2. Request the Court consider referring me to the Pro Se project

The office of the Governor of the State of Florida and other government officials are violating state and federal laws.

State of Florida is violating laws to deprive me of my constitutional right to Speech and Press, which are protected under the First Amendment.

The Court file contains videos published on You Tube warning me and my daughter to remove all my websites or suffer the consequences, which included mention of my unborn (at the time) grandchild being taken.

In addition to the years of threats, which include death threats, I am now receiving telephone calls from a person talking into a voice-changer who is warning me to remove all my websites from publication or very bad things will happen to me.

The threatening calls came from State of Florida.

The aforementioned telephone calls have been recorded and I have photos of the telephone receiver that show the telephone calls are coming Florida Governor Rick Scott’s office and Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi’s office (and others).

The following is a list of some of the calls I have received.

March 10, 2016 – 850.488,7146 (State of Florida)
March 12, 2016 – 212.832.2000 (The Trump Organization) (Owner Donald J. Trump)
March 13, 2016 – 561.832.2600 (Mar A Lago Club) (Owner Donald J. Trump)
March 16, 2016 – 650.488.7146 (State of Florida) (Governor Rick Scott)
March 21, 2016 – 305.592.2000 (Doral Golf Resort) (Owner Donald J. Trump)
March 26, 2016 – 850.906.9100 (Tripp Scott Law Firm)
March 28, 2016 – 850.414.3990  (Pam Bondi)

In one call the person told me to remove all my websites or I will be “exposed as a pedophile”. I am FACTUALLY NOT a pedophile.

The anonymous caller today spoke of “Donald J. Trump” and “Pam Bondi” and told me to take down my websites or “face consequences”.

I can submit the audios to the Court upon request.

The purposes of the calls are to force remove from publication, via extortion, public documents and information regarding secret naked photographs of the missing child HaLeigh Ann-Marie Cummings.

Note: The Federal Bureau of Investigation is presently seeking information from the public about the kidnapping of HaLeigh Cummings.

The violators are interfering with legitimate reporting on the election of the United States Presidency.

Very respectfully submitted,
Timothy Charles Holmseth

Retired EGFPD officer dead

Jim Grabanski was key media figure in 1986 unsolved murder

On February 20, 2016, Write Into Action (Timothy Charles Holmseth) issued a legal advisement to North Dakota Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem, East Grand Forks Police Department, EGF City Council, Grand Forks Police Department, City of Grand Forks, and the North Dakota Highway Patrol regarding HOLMSETH V. CITY OF EAST GRAND FORKS ET AL.

by Timothy Charles Holmseth on February 28, 2016 at 9:30 P.M.

Retired EGF police officer Jim Grabanski was found dead in his home on February 24, 2016.

The cause and manner of Grabanski’s death was not stated in the very short obituary.

Mysterious Death

Grabanski was a key media figure regarding the unsolved 1986 murder of Daryl Sindermann. Sindermann, a youth from East Grand Forks, Minnesota was murdered at a beer party and the case was never solved.

In November, 2014, Grabanski was interviewed by KVLY during a two part story by reporter Neil Carlson regarding new information about the Sindermann murder. Grabanski told KVLY he was told who murdered Sindermann.

“Retired Officer, Jim Grabanski doesn’t plan to let this case remain unsolved,” Carlson reported.

In November, 2015, Write Into Action acquired records through a document request that named Sindermann’s alleged killers and showed law enforcement had covered the information up to protect certain people.

Grabanski was also a key figure in Write Into Action’s investigative series ‘Special Investigation: East Grand Forks – History of Darkness – Culture of Death’.

Grabanski was a witness to the savage police station beating of Jon Osowski at the East Grand Forks Police Department.

Write Into Action’s investigation into the Osowski beating has revealed Osowski saw a bright light and tunnel during the maniacal assault by (retired) Sgt. Curt Ellingson and other officers.

Osowski told Write Into Action “Jim Grabanski” visited him in his jail cell and told him he could file a complaint about what the police did to him. Grabanski asked Osowski to not tell anybody that he advised him.

On February 20, 2016, Write Into Action (Timothy Charles Holmseth) issued a legal advisement to North Dakota Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem, East Grand Forks Police Department, EGF City Council, Grand Forks Police Department, City of Grand Forks, and the North Dakota Highway Patrol regarding HOLMSETH V. CITY OF EAST GRAND FORKS ET AL.

Timothy Holmseth advised the aforementioned agencies of tentative federal legal action regarding the endless stream of death threats and extortion demands being made against Write Into Action to remove all websites from the internet.

Some of the threats made are against Timothy Holmseth’s children and grandchild – no known action has been taken by any law enforcement regarding the highly documented crimes.

Florida Gov. Rick Scott will not be Donald Trump’s running mate because of child pornography scandal

Federal case involving Scott’s cover up of child pornography ring will doom Scott VP bid

by Timothy Charles Holmseth on February 26, 2016 at 11:54 P.M.

Donald Trump is very unlikely to choose Florida Governor Rick Scott as his VP running mate.

Scott is the focus of a pending federal lawsuit against the State of Florida that involves the Scott Administration covering up organized kidnappings and a child pornography sex trafficking ring.

The federal lawsuit, which was originally filed as HOLMSETH V. CITY OF EAST GRAND FORKS ET AL – DISTRICT OF MINNESOTA, is being expanded, based upon new evidence that links the Scott Administration, Florida Department of Children and Families, FDLE, and other agencies to extortion, blackmail, and child sex trafficking.

Donald Trump, the front runner for the GOP, would never survive the horrendous details of the scandal.

The Scott Administration and AG possesses audio recordings of a Florida DCF child protection worker discussing a child sex trafficking operation. The DCF agent is heard admitting she received a CD that contained secret naked photos of a raped missing child, HaLeigh Cummings.

HaLeigh Cummings was reported missing in 2009 and is classified as a Missing Person by the FBI.

According to one of the sex traffickers, William Staubs, he was an agent of Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi and personally met with her.

Evidence against the Scott Administration also includes medical files and client lists from a Tallahassee pill mill where Scott’s own Chief Inspector General, along with countless other government officials and law enforcement officers, frequented to illegally obtain drugs from persons using a Georgia doctor’s medical license without his knowledge.

The evidence to be used in federal court includes the names of agents from:

  • Chief Inspector General / Office of the Governor
  • Second Judicial Circuit of Florida
  • United States Attorney’s Office
  • Office of the State’s Attorney
  • Gadsden County Sheriff’s Office
  • Florida Highway Patrol
  • Tallahassee Police Department
  • Dept of Corrections
  • Dept of Agriculture
  • Florida Department of Law Enforcement
  • Florida Department of Health
  • Leon County Sheriff’s Office
  • Capital Police
  • Leon County Commission
  • Florida Department of Revenue
  • Republican Party of Florida
  • Florida House of Representatives
  • Dept of Energy
  • Dept Motor Vehicles

HOLMSETH V. CITY OF EAST GRAND FORKS ET AL involves threats made against Timothy Charles Holmseth by agents of Scott W. Rothstein – Rothstein, Rosenfeldt, and Adler.

Holmseth possesses internal law office e-mails between Rothstein’s firm and child sex traffickers involved in multiple missing and murdered child cases.

Timothy Charles Holmseth, the plaintiff in the federal case, has been the victim of death threats and extortion by Florida agents after securing the evidence.

The FDLE and Tallahassee Police Department are also reportedly facing lawsuits by Dr. Mark Hash, and Alec Hash, pertaining to civil rights violations.

High profile attorney and long time Scott Administration nemesis, Steven Andrews, is representing Alec Hash.
