Governor Doug Burgum should declare State of Emergency

Here’s WHY the police are shooting people in North Dakota – the next death is on Burgum

by Timothy Charles Holmseth on February 6, 2017, 11:52 A.M. CST

Last week in North Dakota a baby became trapped in a stolen vehicle because a man was desperately trying to get away from the police.

It needs to STOP!

Governor Doug Burgum needs to observe this is an emergency; intervene, and request the United States Department of Justice direct uncompromised FBI agents to investigate.

The now regular occurrence of police shootings and unsolved murders in North Dakota is the result of international drug trafficking operations that involve every level of law enforcement including sheriff’s departments, United States Border Patrol, and the Grand Forks Air Force Base.

Law enforcement officers such as deputies, state troopers, local police, and campus police, are being used to kill off and/or arrest and/or murder by overdose, lower level drug traffickers because the cat is out of the bag.

The North Dakota BCI is part of the criminal operation and is used to conduct fake post shooting investigations; shootings that are always deemed justified by the respective county’s states attorney’s office.

Every low/mid level drug trafficker and/or blackmailed/extorted person that looks in his mirror and sees red police lights is going to flee because he knows he is going to be killed or sent to prison for a long time.

For proof of the before-mentioned simply peruse Write Into Action.

GRAND FORKS DEPUTIES AND THE GRAND FORKS AIR FORCE BASE

North Dakota law enforcement and States Attorney’s Offices have told so many lies and engaged in so much deception and obstruction its getting hard for me to keep up. I can longer explain the full gamut of activities of this syndicate in single articles.

So I’ll do this…

I’ll prove they are lying…

And I’ll do it in spades.

Write Into Action has created an exhibit regarding the activities of Grand Forks Sheriff’s deputies as they pertain to the BCI investigation into the shooting of David James Elliott by a University of North Dakota police officer in 2015.

Two Grand Forks Sheriff’s deputies were questioned by the BCI regarding their involvement in the pursuit and shooting of David James Elliott. Those two deputies are Sgt. Andy Schneider and Nathan Moen. Schneider and Moen lied to the BCI about their movement and locations on the night in question.

Moen told the BCI he ate lunch with Schneider at the Grand Forks Air Force Base at 11:55 p.m. on February 27, 2015.

Schneider told the BCI they ate at the GFAB at 11:00 p.m.

Okay -so they are not even close on that one.

And..

Schneider is totally lying because he is seen on Grand Forks Police Department Officer Dan Harvala’s dash-cam at 11:09 p.m. standing on the side of I-29 near Thompson, ND as the first pursuit of David Elliott was terminated.

GFSO Deputy Andy Schneider is seen here standing on I-29 near Thompson, ND at 11:09 P.M.. The investigative report by the ND BCI 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.”

GFSO Deputy Andy Schneider is seen here standing on I-29 near Thompson, ND at 11:09 P.M.. The investigative report by the ND BCI 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.”

The BCI investigative report from the NATE MOEN interview says “GRAND FORKS SHERIFF’S DEPUTY NATE MOEN AND GRAND FORKS SHERIFF SERGEANT ANDY SCHNEIDER  LEFT THE GRAND FORKS AIR FORCE BASE AT APPROXIMATELY 12:55 A.M.

HELLO!!! McFLY!!!

David James Elliott was shot at 12:47 a.m. in the City of Grand Forks in front of the Emergency Room at Altru Hospital – so Moen’s claim is impossible on its face – because both Moen and Schneider were involved in the pursuit and present at the shooting.

But it gets even worse.

The time-stamp on the dash-cam of Deputy Andy Schneider shows him (Schneider) leaving the GFAB at 12:07 a.m.!!!

andy-schneider-dash-cam-air-force-base

Look again at what Moen told the BCI.

The BCI investigative report from the NATE MOEN interview says “GRAND FORKS SHERIFF’S DEPUTY NATE MOEN AND GRAND FORKS SHERIFF SERGEANT ANDY SCHNEIDER  LEFT THE GRAND FORKS AIR FORCE BASE AT APPROXIMATELY 12:55 A.M.

Look again at the dash-cam time stamp.

The police lie; the BCI says nothing; the State’s Attorney deems the shooting justified and everybody lives…

Well, no, wait…

The next baby trapped in a stolen vehicle by someone trying to get away from these monsters might not live happily ever after.

The next death is on DOUG BURGUM.

To:

GFPD Chief Mark Nelson (Grand Forks, North Dakota)

EGFPD Chief Michael Hedlund (East Grand Forks, Minnesota)

Police Chief,

This email shall memorialize existing threats to the safety and rights of me and my family. The following list of encounters with law enforcement has occurred amidst my request for public records and investigative reporting regarding the following events, which I believe to be related to law enforcement’s involvement in drug trafficking and organized crime in North Dakota, Minnesota, and elsewhere:

EVENTS

  • Caitlin Jenna Erickson (suspicious death) in Grand Forks
  • Kristen Guillemette death (suspicious death in Grand Forks)
  • David James Elliott shooting (unarmed man shot by police in Grand Forks)
  • Pembina County Police Shooting (Clifford Edward Monteith III)
  • Rolette County Police Shooting (two shootings/three dead /courthouse locked down – all in four days)
  • Retired Walsh County Sheriff Lauren Wild (secretly) involved in David Elliott pursuit
  • Human Fingers on Picnic Table at Red River Campground in East Grand Forks
  • Wal-Mart Shooting
  • Altru pharmaceuticals
  • Compromised BCI agents

RECENT ENCOUNTERS WITH LAW ENFORCEMENT

On October 14, 2016 I advised East Grand Forks Police Chief Michael Hedlund via email that an EGFPD officer, upon seeing my vehicle, abruptly turned around and followed me until I turned into the Frandsen Bank drive through. My email to Mr. Hedlund said in part, “I would like to remind you that when a police officer does that to an innocent person, the officer is deliberately and knowingly terrorizing the targeted individual. Because I knew I had not violated any law, the only thing that went through my mind was “there’s a man with a gun following me”.

On October 23, 2016 I advised EGFPD Chief Hedlund that on October 22, 2016 an EGFPD officer abruptly left its stationary position in a parking lot near my home and followed me.

On January 10, 2017 I advised Grand Forks (North Dakota) Police Chief Mark Nelson via email that while I was working as a delivery driver for [REDACTED] in Grand Forks a vehicle attempted to collide with me and forced me off the road. It was my belief the vehicle that came at me from the front was coordinating with a vehicle that was behind me. I avoided collision by driving part of my vehicle up onto a roadside snow embankment.

  • Note: The next day I received video in the U.S. Mail from the North Dakota Attorney General’s Office that showed never before seen footage of the David James Elliott shooting captured by a Grand Forks Sheriff’s vehicle, which proves the official version presented by Grand Forks States Attorney David Jones is patently false and the shooting was an attempted murder

On January 15, 2017 I advised EGFPD Chief Hedlund that a police officer was knocking on my door between 2-3 A.M. claiming I had called the police.

On January 25, 2017 during my daily routine of traveling to Central Middle School in East Grand Forks to pick up my son I observed an EGFPD vehicle parked in the very back of the parking lot. I noticed the police vehicle in its odd and obscure location, only after stepping out of my car to take off my [REDACTED} jacket. I stared at the police vehicle for about 30 seconds. I then got back in my car. After about a minute the police vehicle left the area.

On February 2, 2017, while working as a delivery driver for [REDACTED], I returned from a delivery to find a GFPD unit parked, ominously alone, in the back parking lot. The police officer waited for me to see him and then slowly drove out. The vehicle was also noticed by the manager at [REDACTED] before I returned from my delivery and was captured on [REDACTED] surveillance.

  • Note: Before going to work at [REDACTED] on February 2, 2017 I received body-cam in the U.S. Mail from the North Dakota Attorney General’s Office from the camera of a GFPD officer that further proves the official version of the David James Elliott shooting presented by Grand Forks States Attorney David Jones is patently false and the shooting was an attempted murder

Family of Grand Forks Police Chief issues call to action against Timothy Charles Holmseth on Facebook

by Timothy Charles Holmseth on December 25, 2016, 7:57 P.M. CST

Hunter Nelson and Nick Nelson, two of Grand Forks Police Chief Mark Nelson’s sons, issued a call to action today via Facebook regarding articles published on Write Into Action about a local police shooting and drug trafficking.

GFPD Chief Mark Nelson

GFPD Chief Mark Nelson

The Nelson’s want the public to scorn investigative journalist Timothy Charles Holmseth (me).

“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.”

– Hunter Nelson / Facebook / December 25, 2016

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???”

     -Timothy Charles Holmseth / Facebook / December 25, 2016

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

Hunter Nelson

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).

North Dakota police chief is in deep

Mark Nelson needs to stop talking about Evan Poitra and other people’s babies

by Timothy Charles Holmseth on December 16, 2016, 12:15 P.M. CST

Grand Forks Police Chief Mark nelson is getting deeper and deeper into his slimy efforts to stall his imminent demise.

In today’s issue of the Grad Forks Herald, Nelson was once again featured in an oversized picture using sleek shadow art to push a bogus narrative regarding his fight against drugs in the community (last time he was in a giant photo holding a rifle).

mark-nelson-holding-pen

gfpd-mark-nelson-herald-cover-story

But, Nelson just can’t ‘hoax media’ himself out of the trouble he is in (neither could Hillary Clinton).

In July, 2016, Nelson issued a ‘Special Order’ so police-cam video of a police shooting of an unarmed man in Grand Forks could be destroyed right in the middle of Write Into Action’s independent investigation.

If Nelson was truly one of the good guys he would ‘find’ the deleted videos and show them to the public.

But, he’s not one of the good guys folks.

Mark Nelson is such a scum-bag he continues to use the name of dead children and talk about funerals that were caused by drugs flowing into the area through a law enforcement drug trafficking ring.

Write Into Action will soon show the public what is really going on, which includes murder cover ups and very scared witnesses that say they are afraid to talk because they are being watched and are afraid for their children.

Have your boys leave some more human body parts laying around campgrounds, Mark.

It don’t matter – I got your number.

Dear Altru,

I am independently conducting a journalistic investigation into the cover up of the true facts surrounding the pursuit and shooting of David James Elliott on February 28, 2015 in the Altru Hospital parking lot.

I am presently reviewing BCI interviews conducted in this matter. During the interview between BCI agents and David Elliott’s wife, Jennifer Elliott, many medical providers were personally named.

According to Jennifer Elliott, Barbara Norman factually knew and expressed her knowledge that David Elliott was addicted to medication.

According to Jennifer Elliott, during the BCI interview she (Jennifer) confronted Barbara Norman about the issue. She told agents she confronted Barbara Norman about the fact she (Norman) was not documenting the fact David Elliott was addicted to the medication. Jennifer Elliott said Barbara Norman replied, “Oh do you want me to put that in there”. Jennifer Elliott said she replied, “You’re the doctor you want me to tell you what you put in the notes”.

Jennifer Elliott further told agents that Altru did not like her (Jennifer) attending the appointments.

The BCI agents were very intent on obtaining copies of Mr. Elliott’s medical records during the shooting investigation.

I am investigating the far ranging issues of public safety created by this police shooting that involve Altru, University of North Dakota, UNDPD, GFPD, GFSO, NDHP, and other agencies.

Sincerely,

Liz Brocker
North Dakota Attorney General

December 15, 2016

Ms. Brocker,

I am independently conducting a journalistic investigation into the cover up of the true facts surrounding the pursuit and shooting of David James Elliott on February 28, 2015 in the Altru Hospital parking lot.

During an interview between BCI agents and David Elliott’s wife, Jennifer Elliott, Special Agent Michael Ness spoke of (former) UND police officer Jerad Braaten (now GFPD officer) and said “The times I worked with [Jerad Braaten] he’s a very good officer. He’s very meticulous. Attention to detail.”

Records absolutely prove nothing about Jerad Braaten’s conduct or actions on the night he shot David James Elliott indicate he was “meticulous” with “attention to detail”. He was not wearing his body-cam until a few minutes before he shot David Elliott (although he was supposedly working that night (although he was not scheduled to work) and training an intern (which also appears unscheduled); the body-cam was fixed to capture no visual. His dash-cam is not listed in BCI evidence (disappeared). His body-cam was found (hidden) under his squad car. He was ultimately reprimanded in writing by UND Police Chief Eric Plummer regarding his police-cam issues.

I am curious as to why Special Agent Ness made this flattering comment to Jennifer Elliott considering he (Ness) had already questioned Jerad Braaten and knew about the aforementioned misconduct.

I am wondering if Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem has any comment on this and/or other serious issues surrounding this case.

I am wondering if Special Agent Ness is qualified to conduct investigations.

I am investigating the far ranging issues of public safety created by this police shooting that involve Altru, University of North Dakota, UNDPD, GFPD, GFSO, NDHP, and other agencies.

During an interview between BCI agents and David Elliott’s wife, Jennifer Elliott, she said she knew you from her job in “accounts payable” at the University of North Dakota. She said you spoke to her regarding the shooting of her husband and told her you (or someone) was trying to call him on the telephone on the night in question. She pointed out the strangeness of your statement because David Elliott was on the telephone with 911 the whole night until he was shot by your police officer.

In reviewing BCI interviews, David Elliott’s wife, Jennifer Elliott, and her mother, [Margaret] Dolan, told agents they were told by (former) Walsh County Sheriff Loren Wild that Jerad Braaten was employed at the Grafton Police Department and was asked to leave.

I would like to know if Jerad Braaten has had ANY affiliation whatsoever with the Grafton Police Department.

Mr. Carlson,

I am independently conducting a journalistic investigation into the cover up of the true facts surrounding the pursuit and shooting of David James Elliott on February 28, 2015 in the Altru Hospital parking lot.

I am reviewing BCI interviews that include David Elliott’s wife Jennifer Elliott and her mother, Barbra Dolan. During the interview you are mentioned by name and KVLY is accused of publishing fake news.

Nolan and Elliott mentioned an article regarding assertions Jennifer Elliott had obtained a lawyer and was going to sue.

Nolan said, “They manipulate and lie, boy”.

Jennifer Elliott said, “The one day I came home and I just lay down on the couch for a little bit and I’m laying there and you know how they give out the news – the little blip – the advertisement coming up – and I think they said; it was KVLY; well we talked to Jennifer Elliott or something were going to give a update; I sat up off the couch said ‘did they just say…” I’ve never spoken with them. They were calling me wanting to interview – I just said no … I’ve never given them any information whatsoever”.

There was considerable commentary about you.

My research at this point indicates you have done very, very little (if any) investigating in this matter, which would naturally include obtaining police-cams and the 911 call from the pursuit and shooting.

I will likely be publishing content regarding KVLY; feel free to comment on any questions surrounding your journalistic integrity regarding this police shooting story.

I am investigating the far ranging issues of public safety created by this police shooting that involve Altru, University of North Dakota, UNDPD, GFPD, GFSO, NDHP, and other agencies.

Pembina County police shooting cover-up

BCI records show official version clashes with eyewitness account

by Timothy Charles Holmseth on October 27, 2016, 7:48 A.M. CST

Law enforcement and government officials in drug and crime infested North Dakota face yet another police shooting scandal – this time in Pembina County.

On June 5, 2016 Pembina County Deputy Brad Bowman shot Clifford Edward Monteith III on a rural highway near Neche, North Dakota.

Clifford Edward Monteith III

Clifford Edward Monteith III

Media reports at the time described a scene that involved Monteith, the passenger of a vehicle, abruptly exiting the vehicle and physically attacking the deputy and chasing him with a knife before stealing his keys so the deputy could not pursue him.

BCI interviews show those characterizations of the event were largely false.

No media reports ever mentioned Monteith and his girlfriend had traveled from Grand Forks to Neche to look for “the Neche house” and the Grand Forks County Narcotics Task Force immediately became involved after the shooting.

Court records showed the case against Monteith was closed on October 17, 2016 after a plea deal was reached.

The settlement was widely reported.

Man accused of brutally attacking deputy pleads guilty

PEMBINA, N.D. (AP) – A Grand Forks man accused of attacking a deputy sheriff in Pembina County before being shot has pleaded guilty under a deal with prosecutors.

Authorities say 27-year-old Clifford Monteith III pinned Deputy Brad Bowman to the ground during a June 6 traffic stop in Neche, beat and choked him, and tried to grab the officer’s gun. Monteith then allegedly chased Bowman with a knife when Bowman broke free, and the officer shot him.

Monteith initially faced nine charges including attempted murder. Prosecutors dropped that charge, and Monteith on Monday pleaded guilty to five charges including assault.

The plea deal calls for him to serve 15 years in prison.

However – court records show that on October 18, 2016 an Arrest Warrant was served upon Monteith (who was already in custody) for felony Aggravated Assault and Terrorizing.

The prosecution for the State of North Dakota is Haley Wamstad, Grand Forks County State’s Attorney‘s Office.

Is there a reason law enforcement in Grand Forks wants to keep Monteith jacked up on more felony charges?

Let’s take a look at what was going on behind the facade put up by law enforcement’s media arm, Forum Communications. .

On October 16, 2016 Write Into Action submitted a records request to the North Dakota Attorney General for the BCI investigative records of the Bowman/Monteith shooting.

The North Dakota Attorney General’s office replied on October 17.

“I am responding to your request for records involving Clifford Edward Monteith III and Deputy Brad Bowman. No records will be provided because the requested records are exempt pursuant to N.D.C.C. Section 44-04-18.7,” said Liz Brocker, public information officer, ND AG.

On October 19 Write Into Action re-submitted the records request for the BCI files on the Bowman/Monteith shooting.

Liz,

I am re-issuing my request for records regarding Clifford Edward Monteith III. The reason I am re-issuing it is because Clifford Monteith has been sentenced (see Grand Forks Herald link below).

Thanks,
Tim

On October 20 Write Into Action contacted Brocker about the records again.

October 20, 2016

Liz,

I am holding a story that includes information about the shooting of Clifford Monteith.

Per below, I re-issued my public records request regarding the Monteith case yesterday. I re-issued it based upon the fact the case is closed.

I plan to hold the story through this morning to give your office fair opportunity to respond.

Thanks,
Tim

Brocker responded on October 20. “We will be happy to provide a cost and time estimate, shortly,” she said.

Write Into Action has since received the files.

So why did the Grand Forks County States Attorney’s Office take an interest in charging Monteith with more felonies after he had reached a plea deal that sent him to prison for 15 years?

The bizarre circumstances surrounding the Bowman/Monteith shooting may actually rival the shooting of David James Elliott, an unarmed man shot in a hospital parking lot by a University of North Dakota police officer in neighboring Grand Forks County in 2015.

Both the Bowman/Monteith and Braaten/Elliott shootings appear to be violent interactions between police and drug traffickers that are part of the same criminal enterprise; after something has gone wrong.

THE OFFICIAL STORY OF THE CLIFFORD MONTEITH SHOOTING IS CONTRADICTED BY AN EYEWITNESS

According to Deputy Bradley Bowman, on Sunday, June 5, 2016, shortly after midnight, he observed an SUV on Highway 18 driving slowly.

Bowman said he pulled up to the SUV, which had stopped alongside the road. The SUV was driven by Rebecca Rausch, Grand Forks. Clifford Edward Monteith III, Rauch’s boyfriend, was a passenger in the vehicle.

The following is a summary of Deputy Bowman’s account of events:

  1. Bowman radioed dispatch at 12:18 A.M. but received no response.
  1. Bowman approached the vehicle and asked Rausch if she was lost. He asked her to exit the vehicle. He talked to her. He asked Rausch how she got a black eye. Rauch told him somebody other than Monteith did it.  She said she and Monteith were looking for the “Neche House”.
  1. Bowman told Rausch to get back in the vehicle.
  1. Bowman then asked Monteith to exit the vehicle, which he did. Monteith did not want to tell Bowman his name. Monteith attacked Bowman. Monteith pulled a knife. Bowman deployed a tazer. The tazer failed. The two men fought. The two men ended up in Bowman’s squad car (Monteith on the driver’s side).
  1. Bowman shot Monteith three times in self defense. Bowman radioed “shots fired” at 12:23 A.M.
  1. Monteith exited Bowman’s squad car; got into the SUV driven by Rausch; and they fled.
  1. Bowman radioed dispatch that the maroon SUV was southbound on Highway 18 at 12:24 A.M.

But – not so fast.

An eyewitness account by Sara Letexier, a passing motorist that spoke directly with Bowman during the event, blows gaping holes in the official story because of what she saw and heard when she pulled up to the scene.

Letexier spoke with the media (WDAZ-TV) and was interviewed by the BCI (the BCI interview with Letexier is astonishingly short for an eyewitness to an attempted murder of a police officer).

The first discrepancy is the timeline.

Sara Letexier stated she came upon the scene at approximately 12:35 a.m. Sara Letexier stated she saw a person on the roadway and a deputy. The deputy told Sara Letexier she should find a different way home because he was attacked.
– BCI / Special Agent Kraft / Sara Letexier Interview

So – according to Letexier, there is a person lying on the road and the attack is over. As you will see; this does not fit the official version at all.

Bowman radioed “shots fired” at 12:23 A.M. (12 minutes earlier than Letexier recalls arriving). He radioed that the SUV was southbound on Highway 18 at 12:24 A.M.

That means that Bowman shot Monteith; and within a minute or so Monteith fled the scene in a vehicle.

No time to lay around the road while Letexier is talking to Bowman.

Letexier saw a “sedan” at the scene.

Sara Letexier stated she saw a sedan in front of the deputy’s patrol vehicle, but could not describe it.
– BCI / Special Agent Kraft / Sara Letexier Interview

Letexier heard gun shots.

Sara Letexier stated she later heard a gunshot. S/A Kraft was told by Sheriff Terry Meidinger a report of fireworks was reported in the downtown area of Neche, North Dakota.
– BCI / Special Agent Kraft / Sara Letexier Interview

“I heard the gunshots as well and that was kind of scary,” Letexier said.

Here’s what you have:

  1. Letexier pulled up to the scene
  2. Letexier saw a man lying on the road
  3. Letexier saw a vehicle (other than the squad car)
  4. Letexier talked to Deputy Bowman
  5. Bowman told Letexier he had been attacked
  6. Letexier heard gunshots (It’s not clear by the records if Letexier heard the gun shots while she was at the scene, or after she exited. The BCI report indicates it was after she left the scene).

THE MAN LYING IN THE ROAD

“I just kind of rolled up in the middle of it. I could see the man in the road, he was crumpled,” Letexier told WDAZ.

Letexier told WDAZ she talked to Bowman. “He seemed like he was out of breath, he said I’ve been attacked,” Letextier said.

Letexier says there was a person lying on the road and the attack is over.

That is entirely inconsistent with dispatch logs that show Bowman called in “shots fired” and then radioed the shooting victim had fled the scene within about a minute.

STRANGE AND MUTUAL OMMISSION

In their interviews with BCI, neither Bowman nor Rausch describe a time when Monteith is laying in the road while Bowman talks to a passing motorist.

In fact – no BCI summary makes any mention of Bowman or Rausch ever mentioning that a motorist pulled up and talked to Bowman.

Here are their accounts, and as you will see, neither Bowman nor Rausch’s account has Monteith lying in the road.

CLIFFORD MONTEITH III told Deputy BRAD BOWMAN he could not feel his arm after the shots were fired. Deputy BRAD BOWMAN stated Rebecca Rausch was also yelling, “You shot him!” CLIFFORD MONTEITH III exited Deputy BRAD BOWMAN’s patrol vehicle and entered Rebecca Rausch’s vehicle and they drove away.
– BCI / Special Agent Kraft / Deputy Brad Bowman Interview
Rebecca Rausch stated that CLIFFORD MONTEITH III exited PCSO squad car #4504 and entered her vehicle, sitting in the front passenger seat. CLIFFORD MONTEITH III said, “Let’s go,” and at first (1st) told her to go to the hospital, but then instructed her to take him to their residence located at 2129 17th Street Northeast in Grand Forks, North Dakota.
– BCI / Special Agent Ness / Rebecca Rausch Interview

Write Into Action has reason to believe the Bowman/Monteith shooting and Braaten/ Elliott shooting are related to a drug trafficking operation that involves members of law enforcement and military personnel.

The criminal enterprise involves members of the Grand Forks County Narcotics Task Force, Minnesota Pine to Prairie Task Force, Grand Forks Sheriff’s Office, Grand Forks Police Department, University of North Dakota Police Department, Polk County Sheriff’s Office (Minnesota), and East Grand Forks Police Department.

Write Into Action continues to investigate.

Donald Trump’s telephone number used to threaten journalist

by Timothy Charles Holmseth on October 9, 2016, 08:35 A.M. CST

Donald Trump has been targeted by organized crime that has repeatedly used his telephone number to threaten a journalist and FBI witness.

Timothy Charles Holmseth, investigative journalist, began receiving threatening calls from telephone numbers listed to The Trump Organization and Mar-A-Lago Resort in March, 2016 – the most recent threat was yesterday.

Holmseth contacted Trump’s attorney, Michael D. Cohen, on September 26, 2016 to alert him that somebody using Trump’s telephone number was committing felonies and federal crimes.

Holmseth recently published a never-before-seen written confession by a person claiming to have murdered JonBenet Ramsey. The sick confession entitled ‘Two Is Too Young To Die’ appeared briefly on the Barnes & Nobles website before it was removed. The confession has been reported to Boulder Police and the FBI.

The call made to Holmseth last night by a person using voice changing software was listed to Trump’s Florida resort.

“You are hereby forbidden to mention the following names on your website. If you do you will face consequences. Never mention Donna Wagoner, Pam Bondi, Levi Page, Marco Rubio, Jeremiah Regan, Tina Church . . . John Regan, William Murtaugh, Alexandria Goddard, Chelsea Hoffman, Dominic Piscitello, John Merchant, Peggy  Cone”.

Piscitello, Merchant, and Cone were all detectives at the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office in Florida and worked the still unsolved case of the missing child HaLeigh Cummings.

Wagoner was interviewed by the FBI based upon a tip from Holmseth.

John Regan told multiple people during the HaLeigh Cummings kidnapping investigation that he was an agent with both the FBI and CIA.

Holmseth provided evidence to the FBI and Florida Governor Rick Scott’s Department of Children and Families that John Regan and a group of public officials secretly photographed HaLeigh Cummings naked.

“You are to delete all reference to them on your website and you are hereby forbidden to mention them again,” the caller said.

In Re: National Security / JonBenet Ramsey

September 26, 2016

Michael D. Cohen 
Attorney
502 Park Avenue 
New York, New York 
10022

Attorney Cohen,

I am an investigative journalist and the Plaintiff in HOLMSETH V. CITY OF GRAND FORKS ET AL. – District of North Dakota – 3:16-cv-303 – – – this Memo is in reference to:

  1. Threatening telephone calls I have received from telephone numbers listed to ‘The Trump Organization’ ‘Mar-A-Lago Club’ ‘Florida Governor Rick Scott’ ‘Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi’  ‘Republican National Committee’ ‘CNN Denver Bureau’ among many others.

http://www.writeintoaction.com/Trump%20Organization%20calls%20Timothy%20Holmseth.html

  1. Written confession I obtained that was authored by the person that tortured and murdered JonBenet Ramsey in 1996.

Whoever is making these calls and online communications, which are recorded, have threatened to kill me; harm my children; and kidnap my grand daughter. The callers taunt me online with assurances the local police will never help me.

I contact Mr. Trump today to alert him to these facts and circumstances because the people using Mr. Trump’s name are connected to the murder of JonBenet Ramsey. Children in our country are being kidnapped, tortured, and murdered by operatives of this satanic shadow government cult and escape prosecution based upon ‘National Security’ (such as in the JonBenet Ramsey case).

Enclosed is a disc containing the confession from JonBenet’s killer, which was published online at Barnes and Noble under the title “Two Is Too Young To Die” before it was removed. I provided it to the Boulder Police Department and Denver FBI.

I am asking Mr. Trump to read “Two Is Too Young To Die” in advance of a Trump Administration and new U.S. Attorney General.

Respectfully yours,
Timothy Charles Holmseth

Enclosed: Disc / Two Is Too Young To Die / Letter to Denver FBI
