Congressional Records: Minnesota police officer and congressman alerted FBI to police misconduct and mysterious deaths 

“Dear Mr. Wellstone: I was a police officer…”

Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton posed a rhetorical question upon learning of the police shooting death of Philando Castile on Wednesday.

“Would this have happened if those passengers, the driver and the passengers, were white?”
     - Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton

Philando Castile

Congressional records obtained by Write Into Action reveal Gov. Dayton has simply posed the wrong question.

The real question is…

Would this have happened if the U.S. DOJ and FBI had properly acted upon a referral from former Minnesota Senator Paul Wellstone regarding a Minnesota police officer that came forward about abuse and mysterious deaths in the State? 

The proper question may sit within the four cryptic words continuously repeated by presidential candidate Donald Trump regarding the truth behind our government and it's bizarre spiral into insanity. .

"There's something going on. It's inconceivable. There's something going on."
     - Donald J. Trump

The document dump obtained by Write Into Action is disturbing beyond measure and supports Trump’s cynical code-speak.  

Essentially – the FBI and U.S. Attorney General’s office appear to have deliberately run out the clock to avoid acting on information received from a 15 year veteran of a police force in Minnesota, which exposed horrific prisoner abuse and may have prevented a graveyard’s worth of mysterious deaths.


The 15 year career of former East Grand Forks Police officer and investigator Gary Deitz ended in termination after he broke ‘The Blue Code’.

The evidence obtained by Deitz was so powerful he actaully captured a fellow police officer, Rodney Hajicek, on tape, stating he planned to lie to investigators about an investigation of the Department. Hajicek went onto to become the ranking police officer at the EGFPD; where he remains to this day.

Serious questions are now being raised as to how many congressional complaints and legitimate referrals from police officers and patriotic whistleblowers have been swept under the rug in Minnesota.

As state and federal law enforcement across the nation now brace for what could be a firestorm of violence following the fatal police shooting of Castile; the truth is the American public may only be watching tragic theater.

Sen. Wellstone’s files reveal Minnesota authorities, as well as the DOJ, FBI, and Special Litigations Section in Washington D.C., have long possessed very specific and actionable evidence of police abuse and widespread public corruption in Minnesota at the ‘pattern and practice’ level.

In 1997 Wellstone contacted the Justice Department and requested an inquiry regarding the information provided by Deitz.

Deitz’s initial correspondence with Sen. Wellstone rings sadly tragic today.

Dear Mr. Wellstone:

I was a police officer with the City of East Grand Forks for 15 years. In October 1991, I went to the FBI with many concerns about the city of East Grand Forks, city officials, and most important the abuse of prisoners by police officers. I have developed a heart condition, depression, and Post Traumatic Stress. The Post Traumatic Stress was due to the beating of Jon Osowski and the fact that they covered the incident and did nothing about it. Yet, the beatings continue. The Grand Forks office of the FBI is allegedly looking into the abuse of Dean Bass (dislocated arm while in custody in December 1995) and Neil DesJarlais (three broken ribs while in custody in April 1996) both of them were in custody of the East Grand Forks police department and both are American Indian males.

Subsequent communications between Sen. Wellstone, the Justice Department, and the FBI show Deitz turned over troves of actionable information regarding prisoner abuse and mysterious deaths after eye-witnessing a man beaten to within an inch of his life in the EGF police station.

Write Into Action continues to review the documents.

As public figures, national leaders, and politicians, from President Barack Obama, to Gov. Mark Dayton, to Donald Trump, now grapple with the mindless death cult sweeping the nation, it just may be the solution begins with recognizing the true tragedy of the words…
