Abracadabra! – BCI investigation into police shooting of unarmed man contains impossibilities and absurdities
Wayne Stenehjem's BCI uses magic to justify police shooting

David James Elliott was shot by UND Police Officer Jared Braaten at 12:47 A.M., 2015 in the Altru hospital emergency room parking lot in Grand Forks, North Dakota.
Braaten shot Elliott six times, including three times in the head, because Elliott bumped into Grand Forks County Sheriff’s Sgt. Andy Schneider’s SUV.
Abracadabra . . .
According to investigative interviews by the North Dakota Bureau of Criminal Bureau Investigation (BCI), Sgt. Schneider was eating at the Grand Forks Air Force Base with GFSO deputy Nathan Moen, while Elliott was being shot.
The BCI investigation into the police shooting of the unarmed man contains impossibilities and absurdities that are wholly unacceptable.
“Grand Forks Sheriff's Department Deputy Nate Moen indicated that he and Grand Forks Sheriff's Department Sergeant Andy Schneider ate lunch at the Grand Forks Air Force Base at approximately 11:55 p.m.,” said BCI special agent Michael J. Ness.
“Grand Forks Sheriff's Department Deputy Nate Moen and Grand Forks Sheriff's Department Sergeant Andy Schneider left the Grand Forks Air Force Base at approximately 12:55 a.m.,” Ness said.
But the egregiousness of the discrepancies is even worse than that.
The BCI interviews record Schneider and Moen were both involved in pursuing Elliott down I-29 in separate vehicles during the same time they were supposedly eating at the GFAB.
Another bizarre entry by Ness said, “Grand Forks Sheriff's Department Deputy Nate Moen and Grand Forks Sheriff's Department Sergeant Andy Schneider went to the Grand Forks Air Force Base in Grand Forks, North Dakota, at approximately 11:00 p.m., to have dinner.”
Dash cam video from Grand Forks Police Department officer Dan Harvala’s squad car captured during the initial pursuit of David James Elliot, shows Grand Forks County Sheriff’s Sgt. Andy Schneider standing by the side of I-29 near Thompson, North Dakota at 11:09 P.M., February, 27, 2015.
While it is theoretically possible Schneider left the I-29 location following the termination of the first pursuit at 11:09 P.M., and then traveled to the GFAB to eat dinner with Moen; that version coincides with the two men eating at 11:55 P.M. and leaving at 12:55 A.M.
But – Elliott was shot at 12:47 A.M. for bumping into Schneider’s vehicle in the Altru parking lot – so it’s impossible.
Thousands of pills were located in Elliott’s vehicle when the BCI executed a search warrant.
No criminal charges were ever brought against Elliott or any other person regarding those drugs.
Write Into Action is investigating the possibility that Elliott had a passenger with him during the first pursuit.
