by Timothy Charles Holmseth
The plaintiff in a deprivation of rights lawsuit is asking a federal judge to hear a motion regarding allegations by a whistleblower, that savage police abuse and systematic corruption has been common in Polk County, Minnesota and the East Grand Forks Police Department.
The explosive revelations were made to Timothy Charles Holmseth, in the wake of the David James Elliot shooting; the (believed to be) un-armed man shot by a University of North Dakota police officer in the parking lot of Altru hospital, Grand Forks.
The REQUEST FOR LEAVE TO FILE AMENDED MOTION AND/OR SUPPLEMENTAL MOTION was submitted to the U.S. Court today by Timothy Charles Holmseth, plaintiff, HOLMSETH V. CITY OF EAST GRAND FORKS ET AL.
Holmseth filed the request after receiving information from a whistleblower that eye witnessedand reported police abuse of prisoners, and corruption at a colossal scale, which Holmseth believes supports his existing federal complaint alleging a pattern and practice of corruption at the EGFPD.
The request to the Court read in part:
Plaintiff’s FIRST AMENDED COMPLAINT, and oral testimony and argument before the Court, alleged Defendant City, as well as individual officers and public officials named as defendants in their individual capacity, were engaging in a pattern and practice of corruption that violated federal law and resulted in the violation of Plaintiff’s constitutional rights.
Plaintiff alleged that the pattern and practice of corruption was so deeply engrained that it had become accepted as an un-written policy. Plaintiff alleged it was within this accepted culture that Plaintiff’s constitutional rights were violated.
Plaintiff now requests the Court allow the following be considered, as the following was not available to Plaintiff at the time of the filing of the original complaint.
- On March 13, 2015, Plaintiff received a telephone call from REDACTED, REDACTED, REDACTED, Minnesota.
- REDACTED asked if I (Timothy Charles Holmseth) was the one writing about the East Grand Forks Police Department on the Web.
- REDACTED said REDACTED.
- Plaintiff had never met or spoken to REDACTED, ever. Plaintiff had no knowledge of REDACTED story or experiences. Plaintiff and REDACTED were complete strangers.
- REDACTED said he had personally witnessed police corruption and prisoner abuse at the East Grand Forks Police Department.
- REDACTED said he had knowledge of drug trafficking and un-solved murders.
- REDACTED said he had audio of Lt. Detective Rodney Hajicek discussing the savage beating of a handcuffed prisoner’s head against a cement wall, which Hajicek admits he witnessed. He said Hajicek vows he will deny what he witnessed if questioned by investigators. REDACTED said he gave Hajicek a copy of the audio long ago.
- REDACTED said he witnessed destruction of evidence during the same violent event of prisoner abuse that involved Hajicek. He said there were seven officers present that night.
- Hajicek is named as defendant in this case.
- REDACTED said he had turned information into the FBI and Minnesota Attorney General.
- REDACTED said he was asked for a list of names and subsequently provided 15-20 names.
- REDACTED said there is presently a known murderer that is free because the corruption is so deeply engrained and the murderer is well established in the community.
According to the whistleblower, disturbing accounts of maniacal sadistic abuse and cover-ups involved former EGF police officer Curt Ellingson.
Curt Ellingson is related to Sgt. Mark Ellingson, one of the Grand Forks Police Department officers that were placed on administrative leave following the David Elliot shooting.
HOLMSETH V. CITY OF EAST GRAND FORKS ET AL. is being heard by the Honorable Donovan W. Frank.
