VIDEO: North Dakota Highway Patrolman prompted shooting of unarmed man

There may be far more to the case of the baby trapped in the stolen vehicle than the public knows.
Recently acquired dash-cam video from a North Dakota State Trooper captured during a police pursuit that ended in the shooting of an unarmed man in a Grand Forks hospital parking lot is creating serious questions about drug cartel activity and assassinations being carried out by police in North Dakota.
Dash-cam video obtained by Write Into Action reveals that on February 28, 2015, North Dakota State Trooper Matthew Peschong deliberately broadcast false information over a police radio during a pursuit to create the false appearance the suspect, David James Elliott, was homicidal – contributing to his shooting.
In the video, Peschong broadcast that Elliott tried to run over a police officer; an assertion which the video reveals is beyond absurd and patently false. The video also reveals Peschong was talking to someone on his telephone during the pursuit and making the same claims.
After the shooting, Grand Forks State Attorney David Jones joined the false narrative in an official, yet un-dated, opinion letter he sent to University of North Dakota Police Chief Eric Plummer declaring the shooting of Elliot by UND police officer Jerad Braaten was “objectionably reasonable”.
THE TROOPER PESCHONG DASH-CAM VIDEO
In the dash-cam video from Trooper Peschong’s car, Elliott is seen boxed in by law enforcement vehicles after exiting I-29 where police have been following him without emergency lights.
During the bizarre pursuit, Elliott was on 911 with Grand Forks Police Officer Matthew Bullinger. Elliott repeatedly told Bullinger he was in dire fear for his safety because former Walsh County Sheriff Lauren Wild was involved in the pursuit and following him (Wild was no longer the Sheriff at the time of the pursuit but alleged by Elliott to be very dangerous and corrupt).
After being boxed in, Elliott is seen driving over a median to escape, and then continues on his flight toward Altru Hospital.
Peschong is heard blatantly lying over his police radio to create the appearance Elliott is homicidal. “Grand Forks 332 – he just tried to charge a deputy – or excuse me a PD with his vehicle – he took off Southbound on Gateway. Excuse me Eastbound on Gateway,” Peschong said.
Only a couple minutes later Peschong is heard talking on his telephone. “Hello [answering his telephone]. He just tried to ram a police officer. A PD officer – he almost drove right over him,” Peschong said.
Peschong’s assertion that Elliott almost ran down a police officer is so utterly ridiculous it cannot possibly be viewed as anything but criminal misconduct intended to incite harm brought upon Elliott.
In his (strangely undated) letter to University of North Dakota Police Chief Eric Plummer, Grand Forks States Attorney David Jones regurgitated the lie told by Peschong about Elliott, and used it to support his conclusion that the shooting was “objectionably reasonable”.
Jones stated “Officer Braaten had been monitoring radio traffic concerning this matter and was aware of the circumstances presented and the public safety issue raised.”
A further attempt was made to bring him to a halt on the Gateway Drive exit off of Interstate Highway 29. On that occasion, North Dakota Highway Patrol Officer Peschong, Sgt. Schneider, an additional Highway Patrol, and Grand Forks Police Department officer made an attempt to get Mr. Elliott to stop an exit his vehicle. At least one Grand Forks Police Officer had drawn his service weapon at that time. Mr. Elliott declined to halt, accelerated his vehicle towards Grand Forks Police and Sheriff’s Officer vehicles and leaving that scene at a high rate of speed. Mr. Elliott subsequently proceeded eastbound on Gateway Drive then Southbound on North Columbia Road. At that time officers made a second attempt to bring his vehicle to a halt. Officer Jerad Braaten of the University of North Dakota Police Department then joined the pursuit. Officer Braaten had been monitoring radio traffic concerning this matter and was aware of the circumstances presented and the public safety issue raised.

Braaten went on to shoot Elliott.
THE DANIEL TWO HEARTS PURSUIT – BABY TRAPPED IN CAR CASE
The never before seen dash-cam video from the Elliott pursuit, and the bogus conclusion of Jones, sheds a whole new light on the recent pursuit of Daniel Two Hearts.
On February 2, 2017, Two Hearts fled a North Dakota State Trooper that attempted to pull him over for a loud muffler. The pursuit quickly escalated into events that eventually led to Two Hearts fleeing on foot and stealing a vehicle that had a baby inside.
Two Hearts became the subject of a massive manhunt; reportedly shot himself; and was placed under guard in the hospital.
Very little information regarding the Two Hearts pursuit is available because the case is presently under investigation.
However – many similarities can already be observed.
- Both men were approached by police for a minor traffic violation
- Both men fled
- Both men were suicidal
- Both men appeared to be in great fear for their life
- Both men were pursued on I-29 in North Dakota
- Both men were found to possess pills and/or narcotics in their vehicle
- Both men suffered a gunshot wound
- Both men lived
