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.
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.
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.
TROOPER ADAM MALAFA’S STATEMNTS TO BCI
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.
MALAFA CLAIMS HE THOUGHT SCHUMACHER MIGHT BE “ON FOOT”
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.
THE COVER UP
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.
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.
“They’re bad people – there’s something wrong with them”
by Timothy Charles Holmseth on March 19, 2017, 6:03 P.M. CST
President Donald Trump recently described the criminal mental illness at work within elements of the American media.
During a recent interview with Jesse Watters on FOX News, President Trump commented on the recent acquisition and publication of his private tax returns by the weirdoes at MSNBC.
“They’re bad people – there’s something wrong with them,” Trump said.
Trump was referring to news media figures such as Rachael Maddow, who published his 2005 tax returns, and appeared to be physically vibrating with excitement that she was able to use a national television platform to do something that was bad and wrong.
But this freakish activity by cult-like weirdoes that appear to get a thrill up their leg when engaging in deception is quite common.
Trump’s characterization, describes exactly, what is occurring at Forum Communications and within an organized criminal cartel operating in North Dakota and Minnesota.
“They just don’t respect the law and we have to change that,” Trump said.
In 2016, Write Into Action discovered the North Dakota Bureau of Criminal Investigation (BCI) is engaging in systemic corruption and criminal collusion with many North Dakota States Attorney’s offices to cover up true facts surrounding police shootings and other serious crimes.
Most of the efforts appear to conceal an international drug trafficking operation that involves bad actors within local and state police, along with the United States Border Patrol and the Grand Forks Air Force Base.
The Office of North Dakota Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem (BCI) regularly colludes with State Prosecutors to utilize Forum Communications to fool the public regarding investigations.
Write Into Action’s most recent discovery of Forum Communications conspiring against the public involves the tragic death of Fargo Police Officer Jason Moszer.
Moszer was shot in the line of duty in February, 2016.
Forum Communications reported, categorically, that Officer Moszer was shot and killed by Marcus Schumacher.
Schumacher was subsequently encouraged, during negotiations, to kill himself. He was then shot by a SWAT sniper.
Acting upon tips from the public, Write Into Action initiated an independent journalistic investigation into the Schumacher/Moszer shooting case.
There are no BCI reports or ballistic tests that support what Forum Communications reported to the public.
Evidence does clearly show Moszer was accidently shot and killed by friendly fire from a fellow officer in a dark alley in what appears to be a tragic case of mistaken identity (Write Into Action is presently preparing that for future publication).
Cass County States Attorney Birch Burdick colluded with WDAY-TV (Forum Communications) during a sit down interview to use ‘fake news’ to fool the public about what happened and falsely accuse Marcus Schumacher of shooting Officer Moszer.
The regular practice of the ‘fake news’ deception by Forum Communications is a polished one.
THE SCHEME EXPLAINED
North Dakota States Attorneys and/or Forum Communications news presenters will refer to the ‘BCI investigation’ when explaining the basis for an official decision.
It’s a trick.
According to the BCI, their agency only processes the crime scene and conducts interviews. The BCI maintains it does not submit an opinion, make recommendations, or influence the decision-making process of the State Prosecutor in any way (beyond turning over its reports).
Essentially – the State Prosecutor and Forum Communications trick the public into believing the BCI made a recommendation and its simply being followed.
It’s a trick.
Write Into Action has discovered States Attorney’s across the state of North Dakota have been regularly using this trick to fool the public.
This illusion was used by Pembina County States Attorney Ryan Bialas when Pembina County Deputy Brad Bowman shot Clifford Edward Monteith III on a rural highway late at night.
In this case, an eye witness, Sara Letexier, told police she pulled up onto the scene and witnessed Monteith lying on the highway, which did not match the official story that cleared the officer in the shooting.
Bialas told Write Into Action that the BCI were the investigators. He then claimed the BCI told him Letexier was mistaken in his observation.
The BCI reports make no such statement, whatsoever.
However – the BCI never steps forward to correct the false impressions being created by the States Prosecutors in these cover ups.
DECEPTION EXAMPLE / OFFICER MOSZER SHOOTING
Forum Communications used news reporters and presenters to make the most defamatory of the statements (e.g. – a WDAY presenter unequivocally stated Marcus Schumacher shot Officer Moszer) to be made about the case.
WDAY Producers cleverly sprinkled quotes from States Attorney Birch Burdick into the fake news segment. The Burdick quotes complimented the lies told by the WDAY presenter (without requiring Burdick, himself, to lie outright on TV) thus creating the illusion, in the subconscious mind of the viewer, that the WDAY presenter’s comments were based upon official statements from Burdick.
But they weren’t – it was a mind trick.
MORE PROOF OF COLLUSION
Write Into Action obtained evidence of blatant fake news deception by Forum Communications regarding their news coverage of a police shooting in Grand Fork, North Dakota.
In February, 2015, a University of North Dakota campus police officer emptied his entire clip into an unarmed man, David James Elliott, who was trying to reach the safety of the Altru Hospital Emergency Room without getting shot.
Write Into Action began ordering police cam videos of the shooting, which appeared to activate collusion behind the scenes between WDAZ-TV (Forum Communications) and the Grand Forks Police Department.
Before Write Into Action was able to obtain the videos, WDAZ announced they would be publishing videos from the night of the David Elliott shooting.
WDAZ producers and GFPD Police Chief Mark Nelson conspired to conceal the time-stamps of the police body-cams. Producers strategically covered the time-stamp with Staci Van Dyke’s shoulder. In a second clip, they placed the WDAZ logo over the time-stamp.
Grand Forks States Attorney David Jones completely cleared Jerad Braaten, the officer that shot David Elliott, despite the fact Braaten got rid of his dash-cam and tried to hide his body-cam under his squad car (Write Into Action has obtained a video of the shooting which will be released in the future).
No evidence even remotely supports Jones’ conclusion published in a bizarre undated letter.
In 2016, George Lyons, was arrested in Polk County, Minnesota for first degree sexual assault upon a young minor girl. Lyon’s then announced on his Facebook page that he was engaged to be married to an Assistant State Prosecutor at the Grand Forks County States Attorney’s office; his entire case file then disappeared from the Minnesota Court’s register of actions.
The collective behavior pattern of Forum Communications and North Dakota public officials is destructive to the health of our society, and only serves to create a sick culture that is friendly and conducive to organized crime and violent pedophiles.
Normal people that want to raise their children in a safe community understand the difference between right and wrong.
Trump’s characterization of these people could not be said any better.
“They’re bad people – there’s something wrong with them”.
VIDEO: North Dakota Highway Patrolman prompted shooting of unarmed man
by Timothy Charles Holmseth on February 12, 2017, 4:38 P.M. CST
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.
– David Jones / Grand Forks States Attorney / Undated Opinion Letter
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
Write Into Action has acquired video that shows the shooting of Elliott, which will be published in the near future – revealing a cover-up that will blow your mind.

Light Sabres and PS4 Ultimate Fighting – drug trafficking and murder is fun until somebody loses a baby
by Timothy Charles Holmseth on February 4, 2017, 10:41 A.M. CST
Will the ‘baby caught in the stolen car’ case be the event that wakes up North Dakotans and Minnesotans to the public safety issue being created by drug trafficking within the ranks of their own law enforcement agencies?
Let’s break it down.
The Associated Press is reporting the manhunt for Daniel Michael Two Hearts has ended. Two Hearts was reportedly airlifted to the hospital after he shot himself during a hostage situation in Devil’s Lake, North Dakota – resulting in a non-fatal wound.
Two Hearts, 23, reportedly became involved in an extended pursuit that began around 9:30 p.m. on Thursday when a North Dakota State Trooper attempted to stop him on Interstate 29 near Grand Forks for a ‘loud muffler’.
Two Hearts reportedly fled and eventually fired shots at police with a 9mm in what became a multi-county pursuit that involved Two Hearts stealing several different vehicles – one with a baby in it.
Two other individuals that were with Two Hearts were arrested and methamphetamine was reportedly found in the vehicle.
North Dakota court records show Two Hearts is charged with ‘Attempted Murder’.
Two Hearts has an extensive criminal record that involves offenses such as theft, burglary, minor drug charges, and traffic violations.
WAS TWO HEARTS WORKING FOR LAW ENFORCEMENT?
But there is one particular case that stands out.
In March, 2015, Two Hearts was charged in Burleigh County with three counts including a Class C felony drug charge.
On April 17, 2015, less than a month later, the charges were completely dismissed.
What is relevant about that?
I’ll tell you.
Two Hearts certainly reached some kind of a deal with the government to have his criminal charges dropped. That makes it very likely Two Hearts was working for/with law enforcement.
Why was Two Hearts so terrified and determined to get away Thursday when a State Trooper attempted to pull him over?
Let’s get some perspective using another very recent case in Grand Forks.
On Tuesday, January 31, 2017, Dean Allen Vondal-Rinde, 34, was charged with delivery of a controlled substance, a Class AA felony. Court records show the Affidavit for his arrest that was filed Tuesday was the first activity ever on the case.
Vondal-Rinde’s charges are based upon a ‘controlled buy’ arranged by the Grand Forks Narcotics Task Force agents that took place near the Ralph Engelstad arena on September 20, 2016.
Here’s the question, folks.
Why did law enforcement wait until February, 2017, to charge Vondal-Rinde with a crime he committed in September, 2016?
Persons charged with a Class AA felony in North Dakota may be sentenced to life in prison if convicted.
Law enforcement claims to have electronic data/evidence that proves Vondal-Rinde committed the crime.
Here’s what that really means.
Drug task-force cops had evidence on a man that could put him away for the rest of his life and there was NO RECORD OF IT for five months.
Here’s the question that creates…
What was Vondal-Rinde doing between September and February while shadowy people secretly held his life in their hands?
Probably anything they told him to do – wouldn’t you?
Vondal-Rinde was ripe for blackmail and extortion by faceless and nameless shadow people that call themselves ‘Task Force Agents’.
The facts and circumstance’s surrounding Two Hearts also indicate he may have been involved on some level with law enforcement.
DRUGS, FLEEING THE POLICE, AND PEOPLE GETTING SHOT IN NORTH DAKOTA
The Daniel Two Hearts situation, which involves Two-Hearts fleeing a traffic stop, closely mimics the pursuit and shooting of David James Elliott in February, 2015.
Much like Two Hearts, Elliott inexplicably fled when a police officer attempted to pull him over for a minor traffic offense. Elliott told police he had taken enough pills to kill himself, which he claimed was his intention. However, he did not die from the drugs he ingested, which may mean he over-stated his consumption.
Two Hearts, too, also unsuccessfully attempted suicide.
Something clearly had both men scared to death.
Elliott, who was unarmed, was shot in the head by a UND police officer in the Emergency Room parking lot of Altru hospital in Grand Forks where he had arranged to meet a GFPD officer that he had been talking to during a two hour 911 call.
Thousands of pills were found in Elliott’s pick-up truck.
Methamphetamine was reportedly found in Two Heart’s vehicle.
But watch this.
911 call records reveal Elliott told police during the two hour pursuit, which went up and down Interstate 29, that he believed Lauren Wild, the former Sheriff of Walsh County was following him (Wild is the disgraced former Sheriff that was sued by a deputy in federal court and was not even the Sheriff at the time) and would surely harm him if he pulled over.
But there is even a bigger problem here that may require the FBI to sort out.
Walsh County Sheriff Ron Jurgens told Write Into Action that Walsh County played no role whatsoever in the Elliott pursuit. “Walsh County had no involvement with the chase or anything involving that case,” Jurgens said.
However, according to BCI investigative files a Walsh County “deputy” was involved.
So which is it?
The public was never even supposed to know about Wild’s involvement and only learned about it after Write Into Action exclusively obtained BCI interviews with David Elliott’s wife, Jennifer Elliott, and the 911 call recording from the North Dakota Attorney General’s Office (Grand Forks County PSAP deleted their copy).
BCI interviews reveal Jennifer Elliott and her mother-in-law, Margaret Dolan, said their family was friends with Wild. Jennifer Elliott and Dolan further told BCI agents that Wild claimed, after the shooting, that Jerad Braaten, the UND police officer that shot David Elliott, had been kicked out of the Grafton Police Department.
But Grafton Police Chief Anthony Dumas told Write Into Action that Braaten was never employed there.
Indeed – a former North Dakota disgraced county sheriff had involved himself on some level in a midnight pursuit and shooting that involved drugs.
Write Into Action recently obtained never before seen video of the David Elliott shooting and there is no doubt whatsoever the shooting was an attempted murder that was covered up by Grand Forks County States Attorney David Jones and other law enforcement Department heads.
Write Into Action will be showing the public the video in the near future.
The integrity of the BCI investigation into the David Elliott shooting is such a complete and absurd joke that a BCI agent, Michael Ness, is his heard telling Braaten that his body-cam was found underneath his squad car – noting to Braaten it must have fallen under the car. Write Into Action obtained the body-cam file, which seemed tampered-with, unresponsive, and partially disabled. While the camera captured no meaningful video – the camera lens briefly captures the ‘sky’ amidst a swirling motion as the camera unit is clearly being thrown under the UND squad car well after the shooting.
Not a chance, folks.
In June, 2016, Clifford Edward Monteith IIII, was shot by Brad Bowman, a Pembina County deputy. The shooting occurred on a deserted highway late at night where Bowman and Monteith allegedly fought until Monteith was tazed and shot and then escaped in a vehicle.
The meeting/interaction between Monteith and Bowman was not even the result of a traffic stop. Bowman told the BCI he followed Monteith’s vehicle and then got out to talk to Monteith during a “walk and talk”.
During his interview with BCI agents, Bowman describes a fight that took place; how he escaped Monteith’s grasp; and a knife that he thinks he might have seen.
THE LIGHT SABRE AND VIDEO GAME FIGHTING
“I thought that I saw a large object omitting from his right hand,” Bowman said. When asked by a BCI agent to explain what he meant by something omitting from Monteith’s hand, Bowman giggled and said, “Just, like a light sabre coming out [laughing] you know what I mean. You know coming from his hand.”
Bowman’s careful words indicated he did not want to flat out lie about seeing a knife.
Bowman said Monteith had a hold of his carrier vest during their physical fight and explained how he escaped. “I play this UFC game on PS4 you know. And one of the moves to get out of the bottom – you put your foot on the guy’s leg – I obviously wasn’t thinking of this but it must’ve been like from memory. But I put my left foot on his right leg and I started pushing myself like up away…” Bowman said, explaining how he escaped by slipping from his carrier vest – leaving the carrier vest on the road.
Now watch this.
Sara Ramos Letexier, who lived right near where the shooting occurred, was the only objectively independent and credible witness to the Bowman/Monteith shooting scene.
Letexier told Write Into Action she pulled up on the scene on her way home from work and that the version of events presented to the public by law enforcement was absolutely NOT what she saw.
Letexier told WDAZ and Write Into Action that she observed Monteith laying “crumpled’ on the highway when she pulled up in her car (although the official version was that Monteith had already fled in a vehicle by that time).
Letexier said she went home – and then she then heard a gunshot after she got home.
Letexier said Pembina County State’s Attorney Ryan Bialis did not even talk to her.
Bialis told Write Into Action the BCI questioned Letexier on his behalf. He suggested the BCI told him that Letexier was mistaken in her observations. Bialis said Letexier mistook Bowman’s ‘carrier vest’ as Monteith’s body.
Write Into Action has reviewed the BCI interview with Letexier, as well as the file on the case, and no such opinion is stated by the BCI.
But – we sure got a nice full explanation from Bowman about how he used a video game move to escape from his carrier vest, which was then left lying on the highway, after he was attacked by a guy with a light sabre.
Is there more?
Yeah – this is North Dakota.
In January, 2017, Colt Allery, a Rolette County deputy, and Melvin DeLong, a car thief suspect (sound familiar?), were both shot and killed in a wild gun fight that involved three other deputies out in the middle of nowhere (sound familiar?).
DeLong, of course, too, had an extensive criminal history.
Even before authorities could officially confirm there had been a fatal shooting in Rolette County on Wednesday, January 18, KFRY-TV reported authorities said “the public is not in danger”.
But guess what.
Two days later the Rolette County Courthouse was locked down for “security reasons”.
On Sunday, January 23, an ‘intruder’ was shot and killed in a home in Rolette County.
Write Into Action has contacted Rolette County Sheriff Gerald Medrud several times to learn why the courthouse was shut down but he does not reply.
In North Dakota and Minnesota, drug trafficking and murder is always fun until somebody loses a baby.

GFPD Chief Mark Nelson (Grand Forks, North Dakota)
EGFPD Chief Michael Hedlund (East Grand Forks, Minnesota)
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:
- 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

Rolette County police shooting occurs one day after Grand Forks States Attorney asked to turn over cam evidence from separate police shooting
by Timothy Charles Holmseth on January 19, 2017, 3:06 P.M. CST
The body-count in North Dakota continues to rise.
Today, Rolette County Sheriff Gerald Medrud announced Colt Eugene Allery, a deputy sheriff, was fatally shot and two other deputies are on paid administrative leave after a vehicle chase turned deadly Wednesday.
Yesterday, Write Into Action contacted the Grand Forks County States Attorney’s Office requesting police video evidence from the David James Elliott police shooting case.

Assistant Grand Forks County States Attorney
Grand Forks, North Dakota
I am requesting all of the police body-cam and dash-cam related to the 18-2015-CR-00632 (State of North Dakota vs. David James Elliott).
I am contacting your office because the records are digital data and was referred to you by the Grand Forks County Sheriff’s Office.

Wednesday’s police shooting also comes in the direct wake of Write Into Action’s expositive report that former Walsh County Sheriff Lauren Wild was allegedly involved in the pursuit of David James Elliott in 2015.
Elliott was deadly afraid of Wild and thought he was going to be harmed. However, Wild was retired at the time of the Elliott pursuit and would have no business being involved in a midnight pursuit, which ended in Elliott being shot.
BCI investigators found “thousands of pills” in Elliott’s truck. David Elliott’s wife, Jennifer Elliott, told BCI investigators the pills were all coming from Altru Hospital doctors.
Write Into Action has obtained dash-cam video from a Grand Forks County Sheriff’s vehicle that shows the shooting of David Elliott did not happen the way it was reported.
The shooting of David Elliott appears to have been a planned hit being carried out by rookie UND police officer Jerad Braaten.
Grand Forks County States Attorney David Jones, without a doubt, completely lied to the public about the David Elliott shooting when he deemed it justified.
CAITLIN JENNA ERICKSON HOMICIDE
Write Into Action obtained video of police-cam evidence regarding the death of Caitlin Jenna Erickson, who died at the same time the David Elliott was occurring. Erickson’s next door neighbor, Desiree Gomez, heard Erickson and Mario Parsons (the man she was with) shouting and arguing for about a half an hour amidst banging sounds in the bathroom.
Parson told police everything was fine when he left and when he returned Erickson was dead. Write Into Action believes the GFPD has engaged in a deliberate cover-up of Erickson’s death.
PEMBINA COUNTY SHOOTING
Write Into Action interviewed the only witness to the shooting scene of Clifford Edward Monteith III, who was shot by Pembina County Deputy Brad Bowman. Sara Letexier said she saw pulled up on the scene and saw Monteith lying on the highway although he was supposedly miles away at that point. She said she then heard another gunshot.

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).
