Q: Who shot and killed FPD officer Jason Mozser?
A: North Dakota State Trooper Adam Malafa

Cass County States Attorney begrudgingly admits “facts” show Moszer was shot by a state trooper

by Timothy Charles Holmseth on April 6, 2017, 11:19 A.M. CST

Write Into Action has concluded facts and evidence clearly show Fargo Police Officer Jason Moszer was accidently shot and killed by North Dakota Highway Patrolmen Adam Malafa.

Fallen Fargo Police Officer Jason Moszer

Cass County States Attorney Birch Burdick responded to Write Into Action’s questions and assertion that Malafa shot Moszer as “alternative facts”.

“If you wish to establish a position contrary to the facts by using “alternative facts”, that is entirely up to you,” Burdick said.

On March 25, 2016, WDAY reported, “Marcus Schumacher fatally shot a Fargo police officer and threatened to kill more before turning the gun on himself in a standoff last month, the Cass County State’s Attorney’s Office has concluded.”

Lab tests conducted on bullet fragments in the case were all inconclusive.

Neither Burdick, nor the BCI, has ever actually stated Marcus Schumacher shot Officer Moszer.

You decide.


On February 10, 2016 law enforcement received a report of a domestic incident at a Fargo residence that had escalated and a man, Marcus Schumacher, was shooting his gun.

North Dakota State Trooper Adam Malafa and Fargo Police Officer Jason Moszer were stationed at opposite ends of the alley that ran past the Schumacher home located at 308 9th Avenue North in Fargo.

Both officers had been instructed to keep pedestrians from entering the alley because of the dangerous situation.

The BCI Timeline states:

Malafa arrived in the alley south of the Schumacher residence at 8:36 P.M.

Moszer arrived in the alley north of the Schumacher residence at 8:43 P.M.

Cass County Sheriff’s reports state Deputy Matthew King was dispatched at 8:27 P.M. to check on Malafa (which is an odd time considering Malafa did not arrive at the scene until 8:36 P.M.)

“Fargo PD asked me to check on HP250 (Trooper Adam Malafa) due to driving down the alley where the shooter was. After speaking with HP250, it was determined that HP250 and I were approximately 30 to 40 yards south of the residence where the shooter was,” King stated. NOTE TO REMEMBER: DEPUTY KING AND TROOPER MALAFA KNEW WHERE THEY WERE AT (30 to 40 yards south of the residence).

The following, taken from the BCI timeline, is going to show you that Malafa accidently shot Moszer in the dark alley.

“9:05 P.M. – Officer JASON MOSZER exits his patrol vehicle and walks southbound through the alley toward the subject residence. Officer JASON MOSZER positions himself on the north side of a light blue garage located on the west side of the alleyway,” the BCI reports.

At 9:07 “shots fired” is heard over the radio and Moszer reports he is in the alley north of Schumacher’s residence.

“9:09 P.M. – MARCUS SCHUMACHER shoots at Trooper Malafa, who is positioned south of the subject residence near his patrol car in the alleyway near 8th Avenue North. Trooper Malafa is not injured,” the BCI reports.

“9:11 P.M. –  MARCUS SCHUMACHER fired four (4) shots towards Officer JASON MOSZER. [REDACTED CONTENT BY BCI ——————————————————————————————————————————————-]”

“9:12 P.M. – [REDACTED CONTENT BY BCI ——————————————————————————————————————————————-]”

“9:18 P.M. – [REDACTED CONTENT BY BCI ——————————————————————————————————————————————-]”

“9:19 P.M. – [REDACTED CONTENT BY BCI ——————————————————————————————————————————————-]”

“9:19 P.M. –  Dispatch advises over the police radio that they have received multiple calls about an officer down in the alleyway near a light blue garage located north of the subject residence near 305 9th Avenue North,” the BCI reports.

Of course, the officer that is down by the light blue garage is Jason Moszer.


Malafa’s statement to the BCI is defensive.

Malafa told the BCI he had not been informed of the “correct location” of the Schumacher residence. BCI reports said Malafa “believed the residence was on the corner of 3rd Street North and 9th Avenue North.”

But we already know Malafa was joined by Deputy King and they knew exactly where they were at.

3rd Street North and 9th Avenue North is located across the street from the Schumacher residence and Moszer was shot in that alley while peeking out from around a garage.

Malafa, in his own words, has placed the shooter on the other side of the street.

Whatever the reason … Malafa mistakenly believed he should be focused across the street to the North of the Schumacher home.

It was a critical mistake.


Moszer was located in the alley where Malafa misplaced his focus. And – Moszer had gotten out of his vehicle with his rifle to take up a position behind a blue garage.

Therefore – Moszer walked north down the alley in the dark with a rifle in the direction of Malafa – while bullets were flying around.


Trooper Malafa told BCI agents he believed Marcus Schumacher might be “on foot” and would be approaching him.

Believing that MARCUS SCHUMACHER was either on foot or on a rooftop, Trooper Malafa fled his squad car to the south and east away from the gunshots. Trooper Malafa stated he assumed a prone position and covered his squad car. Trooper Malafa believed that if the gunman was on foot, the gunman would be approaching Trooper Malafa’s position from the area of Trooper Malafa’s squad car. 

Trooper Malafa was receiving fire, and he returned fire at the person he believed was shooting at him.

Unfortunately, Trooper Malafa mistook Officer Moszer for Marcus Schumacher and accidently shot and killed him.


Write Into Action initiated an investigation into the Moszer shooting after receiving work product from Mark E. Nelson, LA Sevareid Newsgroup, Fargo that revealed evidence in the form of shell casings had been found and then mysteriously vanished.

BCI reports two shell casings were found next to Jerrod Wagner’s sniper rifle. “Wagner’s two shots were the only shots fired by law enforcement in the standoff, while Schumacher fired many times; dozens of shell casings were discovered in the home, the report states,” WDAY reported. Work product contributed by Mark E. Nelson.

BCI reports reveals additional shell casings were found on a street corner. Work product contributed by Mark E. Nelson.

Police records reveal a detective handed over mysterious evidence to an unknown BCI agent. The detective claims he never saw the collection of the evidence and did not know what was in the bag. Work product contributed by Mark E. Nelson.

The cover up of the truth about the Moszer shooting is far more disturbing than an accident that happened in a dark alley.

The BCI and Burdick know what really happened because shell casing were found; turned over to a BCI agent; and then hidden and/or vanished.

According to official version of the events, Jerrod Wagner, a sniper on the Red River Valley SWAT team, fired two shots at Marcus Schumacher. The shell casings for those two shots were found right next to his rifle.

“Wagner’s two shots were the only shots fired by law enforcement in the standoff, while Schumacher fired many times; dozens of shell casings were discovered in the home, the report states,” WDAY reported – WDAY / March 25, 2016

That’s a lie.

Additional shell casings were found that vanished.

North Dakota Highway Patrol Colonel Michael Gerhart and the North Dakota Attorney General’s office were contacted for comment but no reply was received.




Cass County Sheriff Paul Laney owes apology to public for divisive statement following friendly fire death of Fargo Police Officer Jason Moszer

by Timothy Charles Holmseth on March 18, 2017, 11:51 A.M. CST

During an interview following the shooting deaths of Fargo Police Officer Jason Moszer, Cass County Sheriff Paul Laney said, “people are hunting us…how do you think that sits with us?”

Laney made the volatile statement shortly after Officer Moszer was shot in the line of duty during a stand-off with Marcus Schumacher in Fargo.

Sheriff Laney owes the American public an apology because Officer Moszer was accidently shot by another police officer in the alley.

Cass County Sheriff Paul Laney

Laney’s bull-shit was an attempt to create and ‘us against them’ atmosphere within the public and law enforcement community; an act that could have deadly consequences.

The Laney-type mind-set has already crippled North Dakota.

Laney’s deluded belief that police are being ‘hunted’ when they are required to respond to a call is how the narcissistic ‘I’m a hero’ complex has created an internal cover-up culture that is destroying North Dakota law enforcement.

Write Into Action is preparing the evidence that shows what really happed the night Officer Moszer was accidently shot and will publish it upon completion.

The evidence will also show the involvement of Cass County deputies.

The North Dakota BCI and Cass County States Attorney Birch Burdick need to stop trying to buffalo the public before there’s no hope left for their careers.

You will definitely learn Laney is just an obnoxious big mouth that listened to too many Bonnie Tyler songs – not a hero by any stretch.

The next time you have one of your punk deputies come to my workplace and park outside in a Sheriff’s vehicle for a half an hour – come on in and say hi.

Corrupt Punk Grand Forks County Sheriff Bob Rost

Maybe we could get you a ‘Reserved’ parking spot in the back so your deputies can sit and chat with the GFPD officers that do same thing.

If you guy are so bored you should read my latest article about the Jason Moszer shooting.

By the way Mr. Rost – don’t feel left out – according to my hit counter somebody has taken a very strong interest in that little stunt you pulled at the shooting of David Elliott.

Maybe somebody is getting sick of your bull shit.

PETITONER asserts the “Special Order” was made in bad faith and was done in the act of a Criminal Conspiracy.

RESPONDENT UNIVERSITY OF NORTH DAKOTA – UNIVERITY OF NORTH DAKOTA POLICE DEPARTMENT (hereby referred to as UNDPD) has provided PETITIONER public records that appear to be altered and/or tampered with.

PETITIONER has been threatened by anonymous persons using voice changing software over the telephone and Web and warned to remove all of his websites or suffer serious consequences. PETITIONER’S children and grandchild have also been threatened.

PETITIONER has obtained evidence that shows RESPONDENT(S) are involved in the commission of state and federal crimes including Conspiracy and Attempted Murder.

RESPONDENT GFPD is planning to destroy evidence for the express purpose that it shows RESPONDENT(s) attempted to murder an unarmed man, David James Elliott; and for the purpose of destroying evidence to avoid prosecution.

PETITIONER argues the following supports an Injunction:

Irreparable Harm: If RESPONDENT destroys the files in question, they will never again be retrievable through RESPONDENT’S Keeper of Records.

Clear Legal Right: PETITIONER has a clear legal right to the files, which are public record.

The Order further forbids the destruction of any related files held by the University of North Dakota Police Department, Grand Forks County Sheriff’s Office, Grand Forks County States Attorney’s office, North Dakota Highway Patrol, Altru Health Systems, and Grand Forks County PSAP.

Very Respectfully Submitted,

Message to Grand Forks Police Chief Mark Nelson from Timothy Charles Holmseth:

by Timothy Charles Holmseth on August 5, 2016, 12:21 P.M. CST

Write Into Action is going to show you how a single police body-cam file obtained through a public records request proves Chief Mark Nelson and the Grand Forks Police Department altered the file to cover-up the shooting of an unarmed man in Grand Forks.

Chief Nelson: Say Uncle

Chief Nelson: Say Uncle

Chief Nelson and the gang need to admit what they did because it is a felony in the state of North Dakota for a public official to alter a public record.

The BODY-CAM file begins at 12:27 A.M. CST (06:27 GMT), February 28, 2015, and shows David James Elliott atop the Columbia Road Bridge in his pick-up truck talking to police officers through the window.

Body Cam Columbia Bridge 12 27

The video then goes black.

At 12:33 in the BODY-CAM video you can hear the dispatcher on the radio say “627 is on his way”. That same phrase (627 is on the way) by the dispatcher is also captured on DASH-CAM video – but is heard at 12:46 A.M.

The phrase by the dispatcher (627 is on the way) is critical because it establishes a timeline contained in the one single BODY-CAM file and locks the GFPD Keeper of Records into a time-window and timeline of events all contained in the one BODY-CAM file; thus eliminating the ability of the GFPD Keeper of Records to claim the time-stamp on the BODY-CAM was simply set wrong or incorrect.

At 12:35 A.M. on the BODY-CAM, shots can be heard ringing out and an officer says “shots fired – shots fired”.


At 12:47 on the DASH-CAM you can hear gunshots and an officer say “shot’s fired – shit’s fired”.

The BODY-CAM and DASH-CAM do not match.


Watch this…

If one accepts the BODY-CAM video as legitimate, it means David James Elliott was shot eight minutes after he is physically seen in his pick up at 12:27 A.M. on the bridge talking to the officers.


Oh-oh – we have a HUGE problem folks…

In officer DASH-CAM that begins at 12:32 A.M. police cars are seen pursuing David Elliott eastbound on Gateway Drive. The pursuit then turns south onto Columbia Road and heads toward the University of North Dakota campus when an officer is heard saying “were southbound just passing University Avenue”.

University Avenue must be crossed before even arriving at the Columbia Road Bridge.


How does officer body-cam show David Elliott sitting atop the Columbia Road Bridge at 12:27 A.M. when they have not even arrived at the bridge as of 12:35 A.M.?

Moreover, how can we hear “shots fired – shot’s fired” at 12:35 A.M. on BODY-CAM, if we’re watching the police on DASH-CAM pursuing David Elliott at 12:35 A.M.


I’ll show you…

Body Cam Columbia Bridge 12 27

How can David Elliott be on top of the Columbia Road Bridge at 12:27 A.M. if the pursuit has not even reached that location yet?

I’ll show you what I mean.

See the next photo – they are only beginning to head in that general direction and it’s already 12:32 A.M.

Dash Cam 12 32 east on Gateway Winnipeg sign

In the next photo the pursuit is on Columbia Road heading south – they still have not reached the bridge and its 12:35 A.M.

Dash Cam 12 35 approach UND

Let’s look one more time where the BODY-CAM places David Elliott at 12:27 A.M.

Body Cam Columbia Bridge 12 27

Ordered police ‘hits’ and multi-agency cover-ups make Grand Forks and East Grand Forks a very unsafe and creepy place to be.

The public is invited to contact Matt Henson and Stacie Van Dyke at WDAZ-TV and asked them why WDAZ purposely tricked viewers into believing something that wasn’t true.

GFPD chief Mark Neslon covering up premeditated attempted murder?

Grand Forks Police Chief Mark Nelson was featured on the cover of the Grand Forks Herald today where he discussed 'body cams'.

Grand Forks Herald ‘cover story’ the ‘cover story’?

by Timothy Charles Holmseth on July 4, 2016, 9:52 P.M. CST

Is Grand Forks Police Chief Mark Nelson covering up an attempted premeditated murder?

Evidence is piling up against him.

Here’s what’s going on.

The GFPD and University of North Dakota have been colluding to cover up the truth about a police shooting that happened in Grand Forks on February 28, 2015 when UND police officer Jerad Braaten shot David James Elliott multiple times in the head in the parking lot of Altru hospital.

Braaten told the ND BCI he fired on Elliott because he believed GFPD Sgt. Mark Ellingson had been struck or was being dragged by Elliott’s pick-up truck. .

That whole cock-a-meenie story is falling apart.

Emerging evidence from sources, including a person claiming to David Elliott himself, say Braaten attempted to shoot Elliott minutes before while they were atop the Columbia Road bridge. Sources tell Write Into Action that body-cam and dash-cam video shows Elliott had stopped his vehicle and put both his hands out the window – but Braaten tried to shoot him anyway – but his gun jammed.

According to a person identifying himself as David Elliott, Braaten attempted to lie about the incident atop the bridge until a cartridge was found from that location that had his fingerprints on it.

If that’s true – the shooting in the parking lot was an attempted murder because Braaten was trying to kill Elliott (possibly connected to the thousands of pills found in Elliott’s vehicle).

Cam footage cam from atop the Columbia bridge was blacked out by the GFPD and replaced with the word ‘REDACTED’. One officers body cam appears to be covered by his coat during critical times. Another officers dash-cam, which captures the shooting in the distance, was changed from color to black and white to obfuscate the details. See screenshots I prepared at — Did somebody alter police cam video from shooting of unarmed man in Grand Forks, North Dakota?
by Timothy Charles Holmseth on May 14, 2016, 9:16 A.M. CST

Braaten’s video simply disappeared.

The reason Chief Nelson suddenly felt compelled to discuss ‘body cams’ with the local media is not because he wanted or desired to do that. He had to do it so he could casually mention that body cams sometimes break.

Why would Nelson be talking about body cams breaking?

Here’s why …
