Minnesota/North Dakota government pedophile ring exposed via Court Administration

Court records on child rape case completely disappear

by Timothy Charles Holmseth on February 24, 2017, 7:43 P.M.. CST

Yesterday, Write Into Action exclusively reported that all court records have vanished from the Register of Actions regarding a 2016 child rape case filed in Polk County, Minnesota against George Robert Lyons.

Today, further investigation reveals Grand Forks States Attorney David Jones appears to be involved in some very strange and suspicious behavior (as usual).

Evidence shows something grossly illegal appears to be taking place within the Polk County, Minnesota and Grand Forks County, North Dakota judicial systems – at the court administration level.

I’ll show you.

The bizarre and suspicious nature surrounding the George Lyons sexual assault case was first noticed and reported upon by Valley News Live on January 16, 2016.

The Valley News report filed by Neil Carlson called out the fact that sexual misconduct runs in the Lyons family and George Lyons’ brother, Matthew Lyons, is serving a life sentence.

Carlson also reported that George Lyons, after bonding out of jail, announced on Facebook that he would be marrying an assistant state prosecutor in the spring of 2016.

valley-news-george-lyons-and-matthew-lyons

Grand Forks, ND (Valley News Live) We have uncovered new, strange and unsettling information regarding a story we first brought you yesterday.
Thirty-five year old George Lyons of Grand Forks has been charged with having sex with a 13-year old girl in East Grand Forks. And it’s an alleged crime, that apparently runs in the family.
George Lyons is a free man today after posting 15-thousand-dollars cash bail. He was charged with 2 counts of Criminal Sexual Conduct for allegedly engaging in sexual acts with a juvenile relative in East Grand Forks.
Meanwhile, East Grand Forks Police say Lyons was also under investigation in Grand Forks County for a similar incident. Assistant States Attorney, Jason McCarthy says he can’t comment on ongoing investigations. But, George Lyons brother, Matthew Lyons was sentenced to life in prison here in 2014, for the continuous sexual abuse of a child.
The relationship between all these factors gets even stranger. George Lyons had listed on facebook that he was engaged to marry an Assistant Prosecutor here in Grand Forks this Spring. She has not returned inquires to confirm or deny that relationship, as George Lyons gets ready for his criminal trial, and his brother Matthew continues to serve his life sentence in prison.
If he’s convicted, George Lyons could be sentenced to as much as 30 years in prison for the charges in Polk County.

Well…

George Lyons still claims he’s engaged to a Grand Forks States Attorney AND his rape case files all vanished.

So, here’s the fact-pattern.

George Robert Lyons, Grand Forks, was charged in January, 2016 with first degree sexual misconduct against a young minor, which was widely reported.

On Thursday, January 7, 2016 the Grand Forks Herald referred to “court documents” and a “criminal complaint” pertaining to criminal sexual conduct charges filed against George Lyons in Polk County, Minnesota District Court.

But now…

There is no record of the “criminal complaint” and “court documents” referred to by the Herald.

Note: Write Into Action reached out to Kathy Narlock, Polk County Court Administrator, for an explanation as to why the entire case vanished from the website, but received no response as of the time of this publishing.

So George Lyons was charged in January, 2016.

Move ahead to February, 2017.

This week, George Lyons told an employer and several others in Grand Forks (including me) that he is engaged to Carmelle Mattison, the prosecuting attorney on the Delvin Shaw murder trial.

The Shaw murder trial is presently underway in Grand Forks.

Delvin Shaw was convicted in June, 2014 for the murder of Jose Lopez. However, the North Dakota Supreme Court subsequently ruled the Grand Forks District Court “misapplied the law and abused its discretion in admitting evidence against 32-year-old Delvin Lamont Shaw, who was found guilty by a jury last year for the June 24, 2014, murder of Jose Luis “Joe” Lopez.

Okay…

So…

There is no longer any court record that George Lyons was charged with repeatedly raping a child; and he’s running around declaring a romantic relationship with States Attorney Mattison.

Grand Forks States Attorney Mattison

Interestingly, North Dakota court records show George Lyons has a criminal history that includes Felony Theft and Facilitation of the Delivery of Methamphetamine.

Pay close to attention to the details reported by the Herald.

A Grand Forks man is facing criminal sexual conduct charges after East Grand Forks police arrested him Wednesday for engaging in sexual acts with a minor.

George Robert Lyons, 35, was charged in Polk County District Court in Crookston with first- and second-degree criminal sexual conduct, both felonies.

The charges stem from claims he had oral sex and inappropriately touched a person under 16 years of age with whom Lyons had a “significant relationship,” according to court documents. The incident occurred Jan. 20, 2014, at an East Grand Forks residence, according to a criminal complaint.
– Grand Forks Herald / Thursday, January 7, 2016

It’s very clear that everything that occurred in the Court occurred in Polk County, Minnesota.

There is NO RECORD whatsoever of that Polk County, Minnesota court case in the Register of Actions for the State of Minnesota courts.

Now…

Enter the ever-embattled Grand Forks, North Dakota States Attorney David Jones.

Grand Forks States Attorney David Jones

Grand Forks States Attorney David Jones

According to the Grand Forks County, North Dakota Register of Actions, on January 4, 2016, Grand Forks States Attorney David Jones filed for extradition of George Robert Lyons from Polk County, Minnesota.

Here’s the problem with that.

That’s two days before George Lyons was reported to be arrested.

The North Dakota Register of Actions show Jones filed for “Extradition” and the hearing was held by ITV.

“Extradition” is the ONLY entry in the North Dakota system regarding George Lyons in that annual time window.

And the North Dakota ‘Extradition’ case is now CLOSED.

And there you have it.

The rape of a child disappears from the record in TWO STATES!

Sex charges vanished from Minnesota court’s website!

George Lyons, Grand Forks, told Timothy Charles Holmseth, and multiple other people today that he is engaged Carmell Mattison, the Grand Forks County States Attorney prosecuting the Delvin Shaw murder trial, which is underway in Grand Forks.

Here’s the problem.

Lyons was charged in January, 2016 in Polk County, Minnesota with serious sexual misconduct crimes against a minor.

The following is from Valley News Live on January 7, 2016:

East Grand Forks, Minn. (Valley News Live) A Grand Forks man has been charged with sexually assaulting his relative. Thirty-five year old George Lyons faces charges of First and Second Degree, Criminal Sexual Conduct.

According to court records, it happened at an undisclosed East Grand Forks home on January 20, 2014. George Lyons is accused of forcing a 13-year old female relative to perform oral sex on him.

Police say this may have been just one, in a long string of incidents.

Lt. Rod Hajicek, East Grand Forks Police: “There’s sexual innuendos over a period of time, which ends up finally with a sexual encounter that occurs.”

Write Into Action reviewed Minnesota’s official website and found no record of Lyons’ sex charges, which were widely reported by the Grand Forks Herald, Valley News, and other news agencies.

Write Into Action has contacted Polk County Court Administrator Kathy Narlock about the bizarre situation regarding the missing records.

In Re: George Lyons / Delvin Shaw Murder Trial

February 23, 2017

Carmell Faye Mattison
Attorney at Law
Grand Forks County State’s Attorney Office
P.O. Box 5607
Grand Forks, ND 58206-5607

Attorney Mattison,

Today I spoke with a man named George Lyons at my place of employment in Grand Forks. It was his first day on the job.

Mr. Lyons told me he is engaged to you. He told several other people the same thing. He told me his girlfriend is the “prosecutor” on the Delvin Shaw murder case. He told me your opinions on the Supreme Court ruling regarding the Delvin Shaw case. He told me details about the murder case. He told me it was a case of mistaken identity. He said you work late due to the Shaw murder trial.

I researched court records on the Delvin Shaw murder trial and learned you are the attorney assigned to the case.

I researched George Lyons and found that in January, 2016 he was charged with first and second degree sexual misconduct in Polk County, Minnesota. He was also charged with delivering methamphetamine and theft in Grand Forks County, North Dakota.

I observed that Mr. Lyons’ court records for the sexual misconduct charges in Polk County, Minnesota are not on the official website.

By appearance – they never existed.

I have contacted Polk County Court Administrator Kathy Narlock in regards to the strange omission of public record.

It is my opinion the aforementioned fact pattern is very concerning because:

  1. You are a prosecutor on an existing murder case that involves drugs in Grand Forks County
  2. Simultaneously, you are engaged to a man that was charged with first degree sexual misconduct against a minor in Polk County, Minnesota, as well as delivering methamphetamine and theft in Grand Forks County
  3. Your alleged finance’s court records disappeared from the State’s website

It is my belief and opinion that Delvin Shaw and/or any legal counsel he may retain should be aware of the aforementioned.

This email is to memorialize the aforementioned facts.

Respectfully yours,
Timothy Charles Holmseth

WDAZ-TV ignores local nightmare

by Timothy Charles Holmseth on February 22, 2017, 9:03 P.M.. CST

WDAZ, the East Grand Forks Police Department, and the Polk County Attorney’s Office have partnered to distract the public from a deep dark secret involving a kidnapped child from Florida and a local cover-up.

Today, WDAZ published Drug arrests spike in East Grand Forks.

The lame story was a response to Does Trump Executive Order spell trouble for Polk County, Minnesota – – – Minnesota county tangled up with CNN Pizzagaters

The WDAZ story featured an interview with creepy Lt. Rodney Hajicek, EGFPD.

Lt. Rodney Hajicek

Lt. Rodney Hajicek

Hajicek is a very sick man that secretly colluded with kidnappers in an international child sex trafficking operation.

Write Into Action obtained secret emails involving the kidnapping, which Polk County Attorney Greg Widseth was hiding (they disappeared from the EGFPD files) until I made a public records request for them. The secret emails had been exchanged between Hajicek and CNN pedophile pizzagater Art Harris. Hajicek used his personal email account so they wouldn’t be subject to public data records request.

That also means he’s a pedophile supporter in his free time.

The emails show Hajicek was trying to help kidnappers come up with a way to arrest me while I was actively assisting the Minneapolis FBI with information I obtained about a kidnapped five year-old named HaLeigh Ann-Marie Cummings during interviews I conducted.

I captured the kidnappers on audio talking about rape porn that had been created of HaLeigh. The images were actually described to me. They FBI were moving in on the suspects, which is what Harris and Hajicek didn’t want.

Hajicek actually used a scissors (or some office tool) to cut out his side of the email conversation with Harris so nobody would know what he was saying.

That means he is subject to blackmail now by the pedophile group.

Not only is Rod Hajicek creepy – he’s stupid.

In 2011, Tina Church, a private investigator from Indiana called the EGFPD and made a police report regarding HaLeigh Cummings. She told the police I claimed to have HaLeigh in my apartment. They sent police officers to my home and scared my children.

In 2016, after I obtained information from an eyewitness that appeared to place Church with HaLeigh shortly after the kidnapping, she called me and said she was impersonated on the police report that was made about me. She said it placed by a woman from Florida and, yet another CNN operative, Levi Page.

Church also told me the police had been calling her (off the record).

They tried to set me up, folks.

They plowed over me with guns and bullet proof vests and tried to get into the bathroom where my teenager daughter was prepared for a bath. She fought with that baby elephant police officer Tony Hart to keep the door shut so she could get dressed. Sgt. Chris Olson asked my daughter where she worked. EGF City Attorney Ronald Galstad and Sgt. Chris Olson then started switching off going to Perkins in Grand Forks to sit in her section and scare her.

These guys are sicko perverts, folks.

Pine to Prairie Gang and Drug Task Force Commander Aeisso Schrage illegally seized my young daughters cell phone that day and then read all of her private texts in private somewhere. He then boasted to me what he read and he looked like he was becoming genuinely sexually aroused.

I firmly believe Aeisso Schrage is a sexual predator.

Local law enforcement sleaze-balls and scum-bag pedophiles were collectively working together against children.

All of our children.

Polk County Attorney Greg Widseth, EGFPD Michael Hedlund, Lt. Rodney Hajicek, and EGF City Attorney Ronald Galstad must be into some really sick stuff. The time, trouble, and effort they all went to in order to help baby-rapers defines them.

Watch the You Tube video below and think about little HaLeigh Cummings – I live with this every day.

You should have helped that little girl punks.

I haven’t even gotten started.

BTW – just a pointer punks – if you try to run me off the road again you have to make the head-on shot at my car faster and at the last second – you gave me two extra seconds to think.

Does Trump Executive Order spell trouble for Polk County, Minnesota?

Minnesota county tangled up with CNN Pizzagaters

by Timothy Charles Holmseth on February 19, 2017, 10:35 A.M.. CST

Does an Executive Order issued by President Trump regarding transnational criminal organizations and trafficking spell future trouble for Polk County, Minnesota?

It could if local police and government officials are part of an international crime syndicate that puts out local fires that pop-up in Polk County.

So is it an issue?

Let’s take a look.

Greg Widseth, the county attorney in Polk County, Minnesota might be a little unnerved by the recent Trump Order that reads in part:

“Transnational criminal organizations and subsidiary organizations, including transnational drug cartels, have spread throughout the Nation, threatening the safety of the United States and its citizens.  These organizations derive revenue through widespread illegal conduct, including acts of violence and abuse that exhibit a wanton disregard for human life.  They, for example, have been known to commit brutal murders, rapes, and other barbaric acts”

It continues.

“Work to support and improve the coordination of Federal agencies’ efforts to identify, interdict, investigate, prosecute, and dismantle transnational criminal organizations and subsidiary organizations within and beyond the United States”

Yeah – might be a problem.

President Trump isn’t real big on international kidnapping and pedophile rings that are funded by drug trafficking and other illegal activities.

Alternatively stated….

President Trump doesn’t like slime-bag Luciferian creeps that kidnap, sell, dungeon torture, drink blood, eat hearts, and rape to death babies and children.

So why should this matter to Widseth?

Polk County (Minnesota) Attorney Greg Widseth

Polk County (Minnesota) Attorney Greg Widseth

Here’s why.

Documents prove…

In 2009, Widesth, along with the East Grand Forks Police Department and Pine to Prairie Drug Task Force, secretly coordinated through phone calls and private emails to assist child sex traffickers directly associated with CNN, Nancy Grace, and Art Harris, to cover-up actionable information that could lead to a missing child from Florida.

Let’s take look at Attorney Widseth’s resume:

  • Widseth has knowledge that child rape pornography was created of a kidnapped five year-old named HaLeigh Cummings. The child rape pornography was in the very possession of the creeps that were communicating with East Grand Forks Police and public officials.
  • Widseth has knowledge that pedophile traffickers connected to Scott Rothstein and Jeffrey Epstein secretly communicated with EGFPD Lt. Detective Rodney Hajicek to suppress stories and orchestrate raids on a local investigative journalist, Timothy Charles Holmseth.
  • Widseth has knowledge that Timothy Charles Holmseth was actively assisting the Federal Bureau of Investigation with information about the child pornography, which he had acquired through recorded interviews he conducted with kidnapping suspects, and, Widseth knows the EGFPD conspired with those traffickers to find a way to arrest Holmseth at that very time Holmseth was helping the FBI.
  • Widseth has knowledge that in 2011, Tina Church, a private investigator from Indiana, called the EGFPD and reported Timothy Charles Holmseth claimed he had the missing child HaLeigh Cummings in his apartment. Widseth subsequently learned that in 2016, Tina Church told Holmseth she was impersonated on the telephone call to police by a woman from Florida and a CNN pundit named Levi Page.

There’s more but you get the point.

For seven years, Widseth and the EGFPD have possessed knowledge and information that connects a missing child to operatives of convicted pedophile Jeffery Epstein, Ponzi schemer Scott Rothstein, and rogue CIA operatives connected to Bill and Hillary Clinton.

JEFFREY EPSTEIN AND CLINTON GLOBAL

The Polk County connections include business associates and employees of convicted pedophile Jeffery Epstein, convicted Ponzi schemer Scott Rothstein, and a group of FBI/CIA operatives working with CNN.

Threatening telephone calls to Holmseth from “Clinton Global” indicate the Pizzagaters are connected to Bill and Hillary Clinton, and are particularly worried about information Holmseth acquired and published regarding the slain Colorado child JonBenet Ramsey.

During the 2016 presidential race it became virtually impossible for Widseth to pretend he did not understand the magnitude of the situation.

The operatives continuously threatened Holmseth (including threats against his children and grandchild) using phone numbers connected to President Donald Trump such as the “Trump Organization” “Mar-A-Lago Resort” and “Doral Resort”.

In a relatively short amount of time in 2016, Holmseth was threatened in Polk County, Minnesota by operatives using voice changing software that called from the numbers of:

  • Clinton Global
  • Trump Organization
  • Mar-A-Lago Resort
  • Florida Governor Rick Scott
  • Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi
  • New Jersey Governor Chris Christie
  • Doral Resort
  • Tripp-Scott Law Firm
  • Turner Enterprises
  • Republican Party
  • Texas Eqquasearch
  • Adult Video Warehouse
  • Miami Velvet
  • Cheetah Lounge

In October, 2016, Winston C. Mathis, attorney, Arkadelphia, Arkansas, contacted Holmseth after he (Holmseth) published Clinton Global implicated by child sex operatives targeting Donald J. Trump

When Holmseth asked Attorney Mathis who his client was – Mathis ceased communication.

In November, 2016, Holmseth contacted Widseth regarding new information he obtained and asked for a meeting.

Widseth didn’t reply.

So what happens to these little kids that get kidnapped?

Let’s take a look at a You Tube video that contains a voice of a man believed to be  Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager, John Podesta.

Warning: This video upsets normal human beings.

I don’t know if the video will upset Mr. Widseth and Mr. Hedlund.

Maybe they’ll get a good laugh.

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

Sincerely,

Timothy Charles Holmseth

Brave Minnesota police officer and whistleblower dead

Officer Gary Deitz dedicated his life to doing the right thing

by Timothy Charles Holmseth on January 21, 2017, 10:50 A.M. CST

Gary Deitz, the courageous Minnesota police officer that exposed the East Grand Forks Police Department for deep corruption and savage sadistic beatings of prisoners has died.

Gary Deitz

Gary Deitz

Gary contacted me over a year ago and asked me to please help expose the corruption at the East Grand Forks Police Department. He said the local news media was no longer covering the truth and very bad things were happening.

Gary was bullied out of the EGFPD after he told the truth about a near fatal beating of a prisoner he witnessed. He captured a young police officer named Rod Hajicek on tape vowing he would lie to investigators about what he saw. Hajicek is now the ranking officer at the EGFPD.

Gary told me about a former police officer named Curt Ellingson that savagely beat a mentally handicapped man that was crying “I want my mom – I want my mom”.

In July of 2016 I featured Gary in a story entitled Congressional Records: Minnesota police officer and congressman alerted FBI to police misconduct and mysterious deaths “Dear Mr. Wellstone: I was a police officer…”

Gary said he used to be threatened by voices on the telephone that said, “The next time you see me I’ll be standing by your bed”.

Gary’s passion in life was to expose the local criminal enterprise within law enforcement that has been murdering people and covering it up. He often spoke of Daryl Sindermann, the teenage boy that was murdered by locals and thrown into a river.

The last time I talked to Gary he was laughing and teasing me about negative comments written on Facebook about me by the sons of Grand Forks Police Chief Mark Nelson.

I only regret I don’t have a photo of Gary in his East Grand Forks Police Department uniform because that is what he was – he was an East Grand Forks Police Officer – and he remained one in his heart until the day he died.

Every time Gary called me the first thing he would say was, “Ya hard at it?”

I’m hard at it Gary.

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.

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).
