EXCLUSIVE: Write Into Action has obtained the secret video of David James Elliott being shot – official story is a lie!

Investigative journalist assaulted head-on by vehicle one day before obtaining video

by Timothy Charles Holmseth on January 13, 2017, 08:35 P.M. CST

Never before seen video of a police shooting in Grand Forks, North Dakota has been exclusively obtained by Write Into Action.

01-09-17-nd-ag-police-shooting-video

The official version of the shooting is a lie.

Write Into Action (Timothy Charles Holmseth) obtained dash-cam video from a Grand Forks Sheriff’s vehicle that very clearly shows UND Police Officer Jerad Braaten shooting David James Elliott in the Altru Hospital parking lot in front of the Emergency Room.

The video of the shooting proves beyond any doubt that Grand Forks States Attorney David Jones willfully deceived the public when he announced the shooting was justified.

I have had opportunity to reports of investigation, supplemental reports, audio statements, photographic evidence, in-car videos, and PSAP recordings all relating to the underlying investigations. 
– Un-dated Letter, Grand Forks States Attorney David Jones

Officer Braaten has indicated that he was concerned for the immediate safety of Sgt. Ellingson, as well as the safety of others at or near the scene of the Altru parking lot. It should be noted that in addition to the officers present, there was civilians present as well who were in the process of entering the Emergency Room. It should be further noted that Officer Braaten’s line of fire was away from the Emergency Room or other occupied areas of Altru Hospital. 
– Un-dated Letter, Grand Forks States Attorney David Jones

Obtaining public records in this case has been an on-going battle that has now reached what appear to be blatant violations of the law by multiple law enforcement agencies in North Dakota.

The video obtained by Write Into Action this week was turned over by the North Dakota Attorney General’s Office only AFTER Write Into Action provided evidence from recorded BCI interviews of witnesses that proved the BCI possessed the dash-cam.

Write Into Action has also obtained other video from the scene of the shooting, as well as the 911 call made by David James Elliott the night he was shot. The additional video and 911 call were not in the inventory records but proven to exist by Write Into Action.

Today the following exchange occurred between Timothy Charles Holmseth and Liz Brocker, public information officer, Office of ND AG Wayne Stenehjem.

* * * * *

Liz,

The records you initially sent me of documents pertaining to the pursuit and shooting of David James Elliott did not contain an inventory sheet that showed the videos you sent me (GFPD, GFSO, NDHP).  I am requesting the BCI evidence inventory sheet that records the aforementioned video files you sent me.

Thanks,
Tim”

Brocker replied.

* * * * *

The records you requested have been provided previously. A public entity is required only to provide one copy of requested records. A public entity is not required to explain the content of its records.

We will not respond to further requests for these records.

* * * * *

Write Into Action possesses the CD the records are embedded into and no such inventory sheets are present.

ASSAULT UPON TIMOTHY CHARLES HOLMSETH

The day before I received the CD of the police shooting in the mail, I was assaulted by a vehicle that attempted to ram me head-on while I was working as a delivery driver. I avoided the collision by driving half of my car up onto a snow bank.

Corrupt Grand Forks Police Chief Mark Nelson and Grand Forks city officials have been notified about their little stunt on 16th Street, which should curtail any plans to ram my vehicle in the future and then accuse me of a bunch of felonies I didn’t commit.

STATUS OF THE VIDEO

Write Into Action is presently withholding publication of the video of the shooting for legal reasons.

DRUGS AND MURDER IN GRAND FORKS

As a matter of public safety, Write Into Action strongly recommends the public read previous articles regarding the homicide of Caitlin Jenna Erickson and its connections to the David James Elliott 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).

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

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.

New evidence sheds light on Rachel Hoffman murder

‘Narcotics Task Force’ shown as lawless criminal death cult in several national cases

by Timothy Charles Holmseth on May 24, 2016, 12:55 P.M. CST

Write Into Action’s investigation into the use of extortion by law enforcement officers to coerce naïve youth into acting as drug informants has uncovered very disturbing evidence in the 2008 murder of Florida State University graduate Rachel Hoffman.

The emerging evidence is the result of a four year investigation involving several high profile cases in Florida, North Dakota, and Minnesota.

RACHEL HOFFMAN

Rachel Hoffman

Rachel Hoffman

New evidence obtained by Write Into Action implicates the Tallahassee Police Department (TPD) and a Leon County, Florida judge in a criminal conspiracy to silence Rachel Hoffman’s doctor who spoke out publically after her murder.

The Hoffman murder was featured on ABC’s 20/20 and Dateline NBC and resulted in Rachel’s Law that went into affect in 2009.

Write Into Action’s most recent discovery reveals the phenomenally brazen and criminal actionable measures secretly initiated by TPD and its affiliates to terrorize and threaten Hoffman’s doctor and family non-stop.

POLICE SHOOTING in GRAND FORKS, NORTH DAKOTA

The new Hoffman case evidence was discovered during a separate investigation into the mysterious shooting of David Elliott, an unarmed man that was inexplicably shot six times by a University of North Dakota (UND) police officer in the emergency room parking lot of a Grand Forks, North Dakota hospital.

The North Dakota investigation revealed the UND rookie cop that shot Elliott was associated with members of a shadowy group of mercenaries claiming to be a ‘narcotics task force’.

The ‘narcotics task force’ concept is being exposed as a quasi-hoax; comprised of law enforcement officers and government officials operating a private criminal enterprise of transnational drug trafficking through North Dakota and Minnesota.

Write Into Action’s efforts to obtain 911 records and video from law enforcement in North Dakota has been continuously hindered by stall tactics and serious evidence integrity issues, which include a color police dash-cam video inexplicably changing to low quality black and white during the critical footage of the Elliott shooting.

ANDREW SADEK

Andrew Sadek

Andrew Sadek

The Rachel Hoffman murder was effectively mirrored in 2014 when the body of Andrew Sadek was found in the Red River near Breckenridge, Minnesota.

The Sadek case was a national headline story and widely covered by the media including 60 Minutes.

Sadek, 20, had been effectively extorted by law enforcement into acting as a drug informant for a multi-jurisdictional law enforcement task force. The young man was later found in the Red River with a bullet in his head and his back-pack weighted down with rocks.

The feckless investigation into the murder of Sadek has been a horrendous perpetual insult against the Sadek family who have endured published suggestions that the murder of their son could have possibly been a suicide.

Sadek’s violent murder has never been solved. In 2016, John and Tammy Sadek hired Tallahassee Attorney Lance Block to sue Richland County, North Dakota.

The Sadek family has requested the FBI take over the investigation.

UNIVERSITY OF NORTH DAKOTA

Ever increasing evidence shows Universities in North Dakota are unsafe due to drug trafficking that involves rogue law enforcement officers cloaking their criminal activity and black operations with the deceptive phrase ‘narcotics task force’.

Write Into Action has contacted UND President Ed Schafer regarding public records requests that are not being responded to by the UNDPD.

UND President Ed Schafer

UND President Ed Schafer

Write Into Action has requested the Grand Forks police Department provide the name of a person that died of an alleged drug overdose on the same day the police shot Elliott – the GFPD has not released the name.

Write Into Action has requested and made a down payment on the frantic 911 call made by David Elliott shortly after police began chasing him. The call lasted 107 minutes and the public does not know what was said. Write Into Action requested the first seven minutes of the 911 call over three weeks ago and the request has not been filled.

Write Into Action will be releasing the new information on the Hoffman and other cases in the near future.

POLICE SHOOTING COVER UP! Critical video and 911 records of David James Elliott pursuit and hospital parking lot shooting not requested by media

University of North Dakota Police Chief Eric Plummer and GFPD Police Chief Mark Nelson give opposing account of events

GFPD Chief Mark Nelson

GFPD Chief Mark Nelson

by Timothy Charles Holmseth on February 21, 2016 at 1:44 P.M.

“No transcription requests, or requests for additional video footage to be processed, have been made for video or 911 records,”

– Lt. Derik Zimmel / GFPD

Law enforcement in North Dakota is attempting to cover-up the true facts and circumstances that led to the shooting of an unarmed man in a hospital parking lot.

The public is yet to learn why David James Elliott, a man with no criminal record, abruptly fled from police in February, 2015, before being shot three times in the head.

Despite availability, no request has been made for the critical 911 records of Elliott’s call to PSAP, which would shed light on the events, facts, and circumstances that ended when Elliott was shot outside the Emergency Room parking lot of Altru hospital in Grand Forks.

On February, 8, 2016, WDAZ, Forum Communications, Inc. broadcast select video featuring short clips from the chase and shooting.

Responding to a request for information by Write Into Action regarding records, Lt. Derik Zimmel, Grand Forks Police Department (GFPD) said “In-car video for primary pursuing vehicles for both pursuits in their entirety” was requested by the media.

Zimmel’s reference to “both pursuits” is based upon an assertion that two separate pursuits took place on the night in question.

The deceptive story being given to the public is that the initial David Elliott pursuit was cancelled, and then, re-initiated, over an hour later, when Elliott returned to Grand Forks city limits.

That’s false.

“MULTIPLE COUNTIES”

“The UND police officer was assisting in a pursuit that had covered multiple counties as well as the City of Grand Forks,” said UND Police Chief Eric Plummer during a press conference. [quote can be heard at the 20 second marker of the following video].

Plummer refers to ONE pursuit.

Either GFPD Chief Mark Nelson’s public information officer Lt. Derik Zimmel is lying; or UND Police Chief Eric Plummer is lying.

The facts show Plummer is telling the truth.

The pursuit was on-going after law enforcement claims they stopped chasing Elliott on I-29 South near Thompson, North Dakota.

But law enforcement does not want the public to know that.

Public record already in existence establish that Grand Forks County Sheriff’s and North Dakota Highway Patrol were pursuing Elliott on I-29 South from the Oslo, Minnesota interchange to Grand Forks, which is in the opposite direction of Thompson.

The details of the mysterious events occurring during that time window are contained in the 911 records.

The reason for calling it ‘two separate pursuits’ is to avoid discussing the activities of the Grand Forks Sheriff’s deputies and North Dakota Highway Patrol that were likely attempting kill Elliott.

The following excerpt is from an Opinion Letter authored by Grand Forks County States Attorney David T. Jones:

David Elliott Jones Narrative Quote

According to States Attorney Jones, Elliott telephoned 911 after the pursuit began. The 911 records of Elliott’s 911 call will reveal where he was located and what was occurring around him.

“No transcription requests, or requests for additional video footage to be processed, have been made for video or 911 records,” said Lt. Derik Zimmel, GFPD.

Write Into Action has determined a collective effort is being made to conceal from the public, just exactly what occurred after police claim they stopped chasing Elliott near Thompson, North Dakota; and over an hour later when they admit coming back into contact with Elliott near the Oslo, Minnesota I-29 interchange, which is in the opposite direction.

The truth is in the 911 records.

“People are hunting us” – North Dakota Sheriff’s analysis of shooting illuminates the Steven Avery Syndrome

by Timothy Charles Holmseth on February 13, 2016 at 10:27 A.M.

Humans hunting humans is a problem says Cass County Sheriff Paul Laney.

Laney spoke out in the wake of the shooting that killed Fargo Police Officer Jason Moszer during a stand-off Wednesday.

“How do you think that hits us? People are hunting us. And how do you think that sits with us? Yet we wear this badge with honor and pride and we’re going to go out every day and protect our community,” Laney said.

Cass County Sheriff Paul Laney

Cass County Sheriff Paul Laney

Laney’s ‘predator and prey’ analysis to characterize the fatal shooting of a police officer has captured the essence of a serious national epidemic.

People hunting people.

Laney’s expression has entered the dialogue of concerned Americans that believe the lives of “community” members such as Steven Avery – the Wisconsin man featured in the Netflix documentary Making a Murder – are all valuable lives.

81 percent of American’s believe Avery is innocent according to a January, 2016 poll.

The North Dakota sheriff’s ‘hunting’ analysis has given rise to a conversation regarding the unavailability of police records and bizarre under-reporting of an officer-involved shooting in Grand Forks, North Dakota in 2015.

The 2015 shooting of David James Elliott involved the actual ‘hunt’ of a man by police for over two hours; the details of which have being seemingly hidden since the very beginning.

Hidden facts, circumstances, and obfuscated evidence are primary components of the rapidly spreading Steven Avery Syndrome.

In February of 2015, a University of North Dakota Police officer unloaded 12 rounds into the vehicle cab of David Elliott; an unarmed man that had managed to roll his hobbled vehicle to the emergency room entrance of a hospital. There in the parking lot while on the telephone he was shot – he was hit six times – three time in the head – once in the face – but survived.

The details of the hours leading up to the event are by any standard, very mysterious.

Elliott, unarmed, with no criminal record, telephoned 911 shortly after police began pursuing him and is believed to have told 911 why he refused to stop.

It is known three police officers were suspended following the event but no updates have ever been given.

The bizarre actions of law enforcement were captured in a scathing editorial by the Grand Forks Herald.

North Dakota law enforcement will not relay to the public what Elliott told 911 or provide a timeline of events regarding the pursuit, which involved the Grand Forks Police Department, Grand Forks Sheriff’s Office, North Dakota Highway Patrol, and University of North Dakota Police.

Only after a formal document request was made for the records by Write Into Action, did police release video to WDAZ TV. The news piece only featured officer-cam segments from the high-speed chase but did not mention the 911 call or explain why Elliott fled.

The 911 call and officer cam video, which will reveal the route of the Elliott pursuit (which could involve another State – Minnesota), and reveals what he was saying to 911 while officers that were behind him without their red-lights activated, is not readily available to the public.

Law enforcement has presented the two hours long event as ‘two separate pursuits’ while describing the pursuit in the middle of the event as officers simply “following” Elliott through the night.

Why North Dakota law enforcement is concealing the details of Elliott’s 911 call is not known.

Following the Elliott shooting in 2015, North Dakota law enforcement stonewalled the media and refused to communicate with the public about what happened.

The bizarre nature of the Elliott pursuit and shooting is illuminated by North Dakota law enforcement’s complete opposite reaction to the shooting of Fargo Police Officer Jason Moszer.

In the Moszer shooting, law enforcement has adhered to the law and been very transparent – immediately alerting the media to the public safety issue and providing regular updates.

All of the same law enforcement agencies involved in the Elliott shooting are reportedly involved in the Moszer situation, including the Police Department, North Dakota Highway Patrol, Sheriff’s Office, and BCI.

Nancy Grace reporter worked with Minnesota police department to cover-up missing child Amber Alert

Fired CNN reporter Art Harris worked with East Grand Forks Police Department to intimidate news reporter that was assisting the Jacksonville FBI

What did Polk County officials get themselves involved in?

by Timothy Charles Holmseth

In 2010 I was contacted by the Minneapolis FBI. They wanted to interview me regarding information I had regarding a “kidnapping” in Florida.

The kidnapping was of HaLeigh Ann-Marie Cummings.

I was subsequently interviewed for several hours, and provided the FBI audio recordings of various interviews I had conducted with specific individuals. Some of them had been questioned by law enforcement in Florida about their whereabouts on certain days the child had been moved across state lines.

You see…

The HaLeigh Cummings kidnapping was an organized operation by a trafficking underground group with a hub in Florida, and when their operation started to collapse, the group imploded, and they turned on each other; some of them reached out to me.

The primary reason I was chosen (although I didn’t know it at the time) by a select member of the trafficking operation, was because Minnesota has a one-party law regarding the taping of telephone conversations, opposed to Florida’s two-party requirements.

Minnesota’s one-party law allows me to record telephone conversations – even conference calls. The mercenary that called me, did so to create a visible relationship with me, so he could then scare the hell out of other members of the Group by making them believe his media guy in Minnesota captured ‘other’ conversations they had on the phone regarding the missing child.

Essentially, the mercenary used the fact he talked to me; to blackmail other players.

That’s why the FBI contacted me – they handle interstate kidnapping and human trafficking. I turned over audio conversations to the FBI that included conference calls between the players. Some of the players were arguing and threatening each other.

Members of the group were captured discussing events, names, dates, places, and times. They talked about kidnapping, murder, interstate trafficking, Satanism – you name it. At one point, the Agent said they might need to fly me down to Jacksonville, Florida so they could interview me further.

Now – if you look at the records of the East Grand Forks Police Department (EGFPD), you will find police incident reports from individuals calling in from out of state against me, beginning in the spring of 2009.

It includes the same people!

Therefore…

Members of the same Group the FBI was asking me to give them information about in February of 2010, had already been calling the police on me in 2009, and trying to have me arrested.

When the Group began to collectively stalk, threaten, harass, blackmail, and extort me the EGFPD would not do anything to help me. – Even after I used call trace to capture some of the telephone numbers.

Lt. Rod Hajicek, EGFPD, was apparently becoming quite cozy with some questionable individuals, and in time, EGF City Attorney Ronald Galstad, would become equally as enthusiastic about nurturing these out of state relationships.

There are no records that Police Chief Michael Hedlund, Lt. Rod Hajicek, or City Attorney Ronald Galstad ever contacted the FBI to alert them to the sudden eruption of calls to police about me that came in immediately after I (career journalist) had conducted a few interviews regarding the missing child from Florida.

By 2011 the police department was entirely infested with corruption and lay siege to me and my publication.

Galstad and Hajicek had me arrested, although they did not establish Venue, to do that. They didn’t have the legal authority to make that arrest, so they just did it anyway, with a plan to use their man in the Public’s Defender’s Office to complete the framing process.

In 2012, Michael LaCoursiere, public defender, 9th Minnesota District, told me if I didn’t accept a no-contest plea, City Attorney Ronald Galstad would simply call Sgt. Detective Chris Olson, EGFPD, and Polk County Deputy Jesse Haugen to lie on the witness stand and assure a conviction.

I subsequently reported their conduct to the Minnesota Bar Association and FBI.

On December 14, 2013 the EGFPD obtained a Search Warrant for my home-office, seized my hard-drive, and destroyed it.
