Freddie Gray homicide resembles police station beating in federal lawsuit againt Minnesota cops

Ranking police officer captured on tape discussing the beating and vowing to lie to investigators

by Timothy Charles Holmseth

The savage beating of a handcuffed man in a Minnesota police station closely resembles the Freddie Gray homicide case.

So does the attempt to cover it up by police.

The U.S. District Court of Minnesota will soon be deciding if evidence depicting the violent beating in the East Grand Forks, Minnesota police station supports a pattern and practice of corruption as alleged in HOLMSETH V. CITY OF EAST GRAND FORKS ET AL.

The beating was reported by a former police investigator that describes how the handcuffed man’s head was smashed against a cement wall over and over by a psychopathic police officer.

Multiple officers then colluded to cover-up the savage assault.

Plaintiff, Timothy Charles Holmseth, investigative journalist, learned of the violent assault and audio evidence against the police after he filed his original Complaint in July, 2014.

Holmseth has requested leave to amend his Complaint to include the allegations of the former police officer that witnessed the event. The officer tape recorded the now ranking officer at the EGF police department, Lt. Detective Rodney Hajicek, admitting he witnessed the  beating, while vowing to lie to investigators.

U.S. Judge Donovan Frank has referred Holmseth, who has been representing himself, to the Federal Pro Se project for an attorney.

Polk County Commissioner won’t provide source of Task Force statistics published in newsletter

Grand Forks Herald – East Grand Forks Exponent – Polk County Newsletter – all under fire for misinforming the public

by Timothy Charles Holmseth

Suspicion increases as the Polk County Commissioner that authored an article with statistics regarding the Pine to Prairie Gang and Drug Force (Task Force) now refuses to respond to questions about the information and numbers he published.

Warren Strandell, Polk County Commissioner, authored an article for the Spring Edition of the Polk County Newsletter entitled “Pine to Prairie Drug Task Force making dent in drug activity”.

Write Into Action was directed to Strandell by Polk County Administrator Chuck Whiting. “Warren Strandell, County Commissioner, authored the article in question. He puts together the newsletter each quarter,” Whiting said.

Strandell will not respond to questions about the article.

Controversy surrounding the Polk County Newsletter’s article began on April 28 when Write Into Action filed Polk County Attorney Greg Widseth using fake numbers to camouflage operations of task force – Pine to Prairie Gang and Drug Task Force publishing fraudulent statistics in county newsletter as secret society across region rampages against the innocent.

“I am not in charge of the Polk County Newsletter, nor is it something authored by our office. You should direct your request to the County Administrators office,” Widseth said.

Widseth is an advisor to the Task Force and conducts prosecutions supported by affidavits of Task Force agents.

Irrefutable evidence exists to show the Task Force has been grossly misused and exploited for illegal purposes.

In December, 2013, Aeisso Schrage, an East Grand Forks Police Officer assigned to the Task Force, involved the Task Force in an application for a search warrant for an investigative journalists computer, and then got caught fabricating a police report on behalf of the Task Force against the journalist.

Schrage is now a defendant in Holmseth v. City of East Grand Forks et al, a deprivation of rights lawsuit which was filed in U.S. District Court in July, 2014.

The information that Strandell is now refusing to discuss, according to Whiting, ultimately leads back to Schrage.

“[Strandell’s] practice is to have the article cite the author if it is not himself, otherwise it is him. For his articles, he has the respective department head proofread the story prior to printing,” Whiting said, responding to Write Into Action’s questions.

But in the case of the Task Force, Strandell did not follow policy.

Write Into Action responded to Whiting and asked, “Who is the department head that proofreads articles regarding the Minnesota Pine to Prairie Gang and Drug Task Force? Where do the statistics and numbers for the article(s) come from?”

Whiting responded.

“Aeisso Schrage from the task force reviewed the article. He is not a Polk County Department head. I believe he is an East Grand Forks staff member and would know where the statistics and numbers came from,” Whiting said.

Write Into Action contacted all members of the Polk County Commission regarding this matter and received no response.


Write Into Action previously published Grand Forks Herald caught deceiving the public to protect organized crime – Wholesale deception of the public by Forum Communications Company.

The article revealed the Grand Forks Herald concealed evidence from a whistleblower that had information about sadistic beatings of prisoners and suspects, and drug trafficking in the region.

Write Into Action also published evidence that Rollin and Julie Bergman at the East Grand Forks Exponent published a timeline of events regarding the ‘Boardwalk Enterprises’ loan-fraud money-money-laundering scheme, that was strategically printed out of chronological order.

All the acts of misinformation and disinformation appear to be done to advance or protect existing criminal activity.

Rape victim terrorized by Polk County Attorney and task force agents

Agents strategically target PTSD time windows to incite drug sales from mentally ill woman

by Timothy Charles Holmseth

Agents of the Minnesota Pine to Prairie Gang and Drug Task Force (Task Force) and Polk County Attorney Greg Widseth are using judicial authority to terrorize a mentally ill rape victim.

The latest revelations regarding Polk County and the Task Force are creating concerns about the mental health of local police and attorneys that are exhibiting increasingly psychopathic behavior that appears to be out of control.

According to a whistleblower (hereby referred to as Paula), Christina Schmiedt, Polk County, is being systematically terrorized and bullied by law enforcement agents that are capitalizing upon intelligence they gathered about her in a rehabilitation treatment center.

Paula said the intelligence is in regards to Schmiedt’s mental illness, PTSD, and a violent sexual assault she suffered. She said Schmiedt receives social security for mental illness related issues.

Paula said agents of the Task Force have been obtaining information from a drug user named “Nana Brooks”.

Brooks is acting as a confidential informant for police to do ‘buys’.

Brooks spent time in a rehabilitation treatment center with Schmiedt, and has provided Task Force agents with information from Schmiedt’s therapy, so the Task Force can focus in on time-windows Schmiedt may be having a PTSD episode; increasing their chances of Schmiedt selling some drugs.

Paula said the Task Force targeted Schmiedt’s rape anniversary after eight prior attempts to get her to sell narcotics to Brooks failed.


According to court records, Schmiedt is charged with second degree felony assault with a deadly weapon.

Schmiedt told police she stabbed Robert Guzman because he was trying to rape her.

Court records show Guzman has an extensive criminal history that includes charges involving:

  • Intent to cause fear of immediate bodily harm or death
  • Bodily harm
  • Strangulation
  • Domestic assault
  • Trespassing
  • Narcotic sales
  • Burglary
  • Theft of a firearm
  • DWI

Schmiedt was charged with second degree assault; Guzman was not charged with anything.

“They let him go and within a month and a half he had a domestic on him. And then another month and a half he had another domestic – and now he’s absconded,” Paula said.

“He went to prison for strangling his baby’s mom to the point – you know, she was pregnant – asphyxiation to the point she was passed out. He went to prison for that and they let him go knowing it,” Paula said.

Paula said Guzman violently assaulted Schmiedt with his hand and fist causing internal damage to her vagina, as Schmiedt’s one month old baby slept nearby.

That’s why she stabbed him, Paula said.

The Minnesota Pine to Prairie Gang and Drug Force has come under increased scrutiny after Lt. Detective Rodney Hajicek, EGFPD, told the Grand Forks Herald that a young adult that went missing was not a confidential informant for the Task Force.

Write Into Action reported earler today that another whistleblower has come forward and revealed the truth about Jenna Stai’s involvement with the Task Force.

Drug Task Force blackmailed Jenna Stai with cell phone numbers – missing girl was forced to work as confidential informant against her will

Drug Task Force blackmailed Jenna Stai with cell phone numbers

Missing girl was forced to work as confidential informant against her will

by Timothy Charles Holmseth

Jenna Stai was forced to work as a confidential informant for the Minnesota Pine to Prairie Gang and Drug Task Force.

According to a source close to law enforcement, agents blackmailed Stai using contacts and telephone numbers found on her cell phone. The agents played a game with Stai’s life, which forced her to cooperate with them.

“They took her phone, and then they went and told the people that were on her phone that she was (working with them),” the source said.

“The task force really intimidated her … they put her out to the wolves,” the source said.

The shocking revelation directly contradicts what Lt. Detective Rodney Hajicek, East Grand Forks Police Department told the Grand Forks Herald during an interview published February 4, 2015.

“East Grand Forks Police said Wednesday there is “nothing similar” between the cases of a missing 18-year-old woman and a man who died after working as an informant for authorities,” the Herald reported.

“Hajicek said Stai is not an informant herself and is not working with any drug task force to his knowledge,” the Herald reported.

“She’s not the first person charged with a drug crime to run,” Hajicek said.

According to the source, Hajicek is lying.

“She didn’t want to (work with them), the source explained.

But she was forced to do it.

Task force agents used Stai’s cell phone to contact dangerous drug dealers and purposely told them she was working with police. According to the source, the agents “put her at risk” so she would “go back into protective custody”.

The shocking new information demonstrates how local task force agents are terrorizing young adults that become involved with drugs, and then using their position in law enforcement to impose unlimited power over their young victims.

The new information regarding extortion by task force agents against a teen have brought the Andrew Sadek back into the spotlight.

Sadek, a young college student, was found in the Red River near Breckenridge, Minn., on June 27, 2014. An autopsy showed he died from a gunshot to the head. His backpack had been weighted down.

Sadek had been working with the Southeast Multi-County Agency Narcotics Task Force after he had been busted selling small amounts of marijuana.

Write Into Action’s investigation indicates there is a mutiny growing within the judicial community and the ‘blue code’ is being called off.

This is a developing story.

Grand Forks Herald caught deceiving the public to protect organized crime

Wholesale deception of the public by Forum Communications Company

by Timothy Charles Holmseth

The Grand Forks Herald has been caught in the act of deceiving the public regarding criminal activity occurring in the region.

Overwhelming evidence shows the Herald has breached the public trust and created a public safety issue through improper relationships with law enforcement.

The Herald’s editorial staff possesses information regarding criminal activity and organized violence associated with the drug trafficking underground, which it has carefully guarded from the public.

The Herald has possessed and withheld critical information from the public for years.

The deception is egregious and has created an on-going threat to public safety due to the Herald’s perceived status as a trusted source of news and information.

Documents and evidence shows the Herald has misled the public on the most critical of news matters, such as drug trafficking, police abuse, and murder.

The Herald, a private enterprise, is being used as an information delivery system for the purpose of deceiving the public, while protecting and cloaking the criminal activities of specific individuals involved in very serious felonies.


The Herald was contacted by a former police officer that possessed troves of information regarding corruption, drug trafficking, murder cover-ups, and police abuse of suspects and prisoners.

By industry standard, the information is so powerful and compelling that the Herald could never ignore it without an ulterior motive.

According to the whistleblower, the Herald was provided audio of Lt. Detective Rodney Hajicek, East Grand Forks Police Department (EGFPD), discussing a violent assault of a hand-cuffed prisoner that he (Hajicek) witnessed take place at the EGF police station.

Hajicek is the ranking the police officer at the EGFPD.

The details are extremely disturbing.

Hajicek witnessed another police officer, Sgt. Curt Ellingson, EGFPD (retired), smash a hand-cuffed prisoner’s head repeatedly against a cement wall. Ellingson also stood on the prisoner’s chest and throat with his boots; shoved his nose bone up into his head; and gauged his eyes.

The whistleblower said Jim Grabanski, EGFPD (retired), told another officer to get rid of the surveillance tape.

On the audio, Hajicek admits he witnessed the abuse of the prisoner, but then vows to keep his mouth shut if questioned by investigators.

The Herald took no action regarding any of the information and kept it from the public.

The Herald could play the audio to the public at any time – but doesn’t.


In July, 2014, the Herald was notified of a federal deprivation of rights lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court by a local journalist (Timothy Charles Holmseth- this writer) against select public officials, police officers, and attorneys that conspired to violate his constitutional rights.

Timothy Holmseth did not know the former police officer that had provided the information about corruption to the Herald nor is it mentioned in his formal complaint.

Holmseth’s complaint alleges attorneys, police officers, sheriff’s officers, and the Pine to Prairie Gang and Drug Task Force conspired to seize his computer and hard-drive so his journalistic work-product could be illegally secretly searched.

Hajicek is named as a defendant in Holmseth v. City of East Grand Forks et al and is a key player in the scheme.

Despite the allegations made by Holmseth against Hajicek in the federal deprivation of rights lawsuit, buttressing the information the Herald already received about Hajicek from the former police officer; the Herald published nothing regarding Hajicek or the federal lawsuit.


In January, 2015, Jenna Stai, 18, became the subject of a missing person investigation after she suddenly vanished.

Concerns about Stai’s safety stemmed from similarities that appeared between her case, and the Andrew Sadek case in Wahpeton, North Dakota. Sadek was a young college student found dead after he worked with a drug task force as a confidential informant.

According to court records, Stai sold drugs to a confidential informant working for the Pine to Prairie Gang and Drug Task Force.

Stai’s mother said she has been cooperating with authorities and was afraid.

Valley News Live reported there were similarities between the Sadek and Stai cases.

On February 4, 2015, the Herald published an on-camera interview with Hajicek so he could refute and squelch any rumors created by the Valley News Live story that Stai was an informant.

Hajicek was given a full media platform by Forum Communications, which Hajicek promptly used to publicly state Stai was not an informant for the Pine to Prairie Gang and Drug Task Force, to his knowledge, and stressed there was nothing similar regarding the cases.

Hajicek’s credibility has never been challenged by the Herald.

The Herald’s choice to ignore irrefutable audio evidence that Hajicek is a devoted and polished liar, while quickly giving Hajicek airtime to address rumors about the Pine to Prairie Gang and Drug Task Force, betray an allegiance the Herald owes that supersedes public safety.


On February 28, 2015, David James Elliott, an un-armed man, was shot in front of the Altru Hospital Emergency Room by a University of North Dakota police officer.

The mysterious case is under investigation by the North Dakota Bureau of Criminal Investigation (BCI).

Meanwhile, several Grand Forks Police Department (GFPD) officers are on administrative leave, including Sgt. Mark Ellingson.

Sgt. Mark Ellingson is family to Odney Ellingson and Curt Ellingson, EGFPD (retired).

Curt Ellingson is the police officer that allegedly beat the hand-cuffed prisoner’s head against the cement wall.


The Herald cites the newspaper’s mission statement with a quote from its founder George Winship, “It will be the people’s paper, run strictly in their interests, guarding jealously their rights and maintaining boldly their cause.”

The Herald’s claim is fraudulent because the newspaper is not published in the “interest” of the public and the “cause” of the publication is to protect criminals that have organized against the citizens.

Federal judge refers plaintiff to Federal BAR Association for legal counsel in lawsuit against Minnesota police

Federal judge’s letter to plaintiff in civil rights lawsuit against police tampered with in U.S. Mail

by Timothy Charles Holmseth

The plaintiff in a federal lawsuit against the City of East Grand Forks will soon be talking to a lawyer.

Timothy Charles Holmseth has been advised by the Honorable Donovan W. Frank that his case, Holmseth v. City of East Grand Forks et al has been referred to the Federal Bar Association’s Pro Se Project.

“Your case is being referred to the FBA Pro Se Project,” Judge Frank said.

The United States Postal Service advised Holmseth that Judge Frank’s letter was found apart from its original envelope. “The enclosed was found loose in the mail,” the postal manager said.

The deprivation of rights lawsuit, which was filed in July, 2014, alleges the City of East Grand Forks, Polk County Sheriff’s Office, and various public officials conspired to seize Holmseth’s computer and hard drive for purposes of illegal searches of investigative journalism work product.

Holmseth recently requested permission to amend his original complaint after being contacted by a former police officer that has information about deep rooted corruption at the East Grand Forks Police Department, which includes various public officials and businessmen.

Holmseth has spoken with Tiffany Sanders, Federal BAR Association and an attorney is being sought to review his case.
