Middleclassworker, of course I agree with you. The point is all member cities have to pay for New Ulms’ ineptitude. If New Ulm would have to pay it out of pocket it would be $43.85 per person. You can look up the latest population stats but that would be frivolous and would not change my point. I’m sure New Ulm has had to pay for other cities Goober and Gomers as well.

Wow, that is fuzzy math if I've ever seen it.

How do you assume that every city pays the same premium? I would assume that New Ulm would pay a higher premium than Sleepy Eye, thus our number would be higher than $838, so the per-person amount is higher.

FYI--League of Minnesota Cities -829 city members-10 township members-55 special district members-total 894 members-$750000.00 divided by 894 is $838.93. $838.93 divided by 13000 residents is .0645 cents.

This is to HarrytheHenderson... Who I assume is including me in his "ladies" comment...

First of all ... I believe Dana is male 2nd... If your going to comment on my level... Of anything ... Don't hide behind a pseudo name... What are you scared of? If you don't have the balls to comment using your real name your either the cop involved or the biggest weenie that lives in NU... Which is no hard feet as there are MANY!!! You don't think I'm ladylike now??? Show your identity act like a true man/women/dog you are and see how lady like I am ...

I'm not looking for support I'm looking for the truth which has not yet seen the sun. From blood money to reward money seems rather poetic don't you? Like creating a painting this will evolve into a coherent whole.

DanaLee - What happened to your mom & Brian is tragic in every way, & I sincerely sympathize with you & your family. I can't imagine such horrific pain, but I'm confused.

Is the $133,000 reward money the blood money that you would not take? Also, I thought there was nothing more that could be done & you would not be back. Evidently, something has changed.

Your choice of words, at times, are in very poor taste. For example, "Okay, bring it mofos." will gain you little support.

Furthermore with this written statement I'm offering a reward of $133000.00 for information leading to the arrests and convictions of those involved.

I Dana Lee Wichmann will now make this staement; In my opinion of the available facts is that this was criminal vehicular homicide and a cover up has taken place. This is why I'm calling bull ****. Ok bring it mofos.

Sorry, just for carification and summation: In My opinion; The cop sped down the street at 50+ mph at least four times for kicks. The Chief said he was following procedure.(the coverup)

The cop murdered two people and in the end, he walked. That's just not right. Anyone other than a cop that would have done this would have long ago started their jail sentence.

All I know is if it was one of my family and a cop car presumably going 70mph in a 30 collided and killed them and he wasn't absolutely positive that his lights were flashing and his sirens blaring, I'd be outraged too! I don't think $133,000 and a cop being put on medical leave is even close to being fair. I do think that the chief of police did go to the funeral in good faith though(not to intimidate that's just not his style)

This is the truth. I have been fighting this thing for months and months thinking I was doing the honorable thing by not giving up. It is what it is. Lest you think I'm just some crazy guy, I thought I saw something up a tree and I shook and kicked and screamed but it just wouldn't fall out. I'm am sorry if any of you were hurt but I will not apologize for doing what I truly thought was right. Please don't post with the intent that I will read it. I wont be back this time. Most Sincerely; DanaLeeWichmann

HEYNOW I agree with you 100%. Please read: People of New Ulm, I have done you a wrong. I got a my civics lesson today. It is over. Honest I did not know. I've been harping on this witness statement because I truly thought you didn't get it. Every time I brought it up people screamed at me. It's over! I just didn't comprehend. I finally called Jim Schwebel today and threatend him with fileing a complaint for supressing evidence. He told me the Grand Jury did indeed have the statement do know this happened multiple times. He said if it happend once or a thousand times it makes know difference. The city took responsibiliy and that's why it's done. I actually thought the were letting me contine because they thought I was on to something and were rooting for me. Believe my I thought I was the only one who hadn't given up on mom and brian. No I'm not embarassed will not apologize. I can walk away with my head up because I thougtht I was fighting the good fight even if no one else would.

Why is it if others reached a different conclusion than you did regarding witness testimony there has to somehow be a cover up ?

Just because you disagree with their conclusions doesn't mean there was a cover up at all. I'd have to conclude that the people on the grand jury were more objective than you are. You are looking for "something wrong" in an attempt to make sense out of this tragedy.

Nobody is going to believe your position as being unbiased and therefore credible.

Everyone keep in mind this is a sworn statement and he has stated he will testify in a court of law if asked to do so. With that I'm going to end this. I think I've put it out there to the best of my ability. Thanks for listening and good night. Peace

Oh Jessica, I've been analysing this statement for a long long time and of course that crossed my mind as did 1000 other things you haven't thought of yet. And keep in mind I heard this from his own mouth while looking him square in the eyes. No believe me this is rock solid. I know there is pain to come but there is nothing vindictive about my pursuit of the truth. I began my quest 12/24/11 and it has taken a terrible toll on me that you will never know.

And please understand a deposition was to be taken 12/7/12. This was a step in the process to decide if a trial would take place. This meeting was canceled and not rescheduled. As far as I can figure out it was canceled because there was evidence that my mother did not have her turn signal on. I know. It didn't make any sense to me either. It truely is a day that will live in infamy.lol, Sorry, I couldn't resist. (Pearl Harbor Day) Anyway it went directly to mediation and that I find suspicous. Mabe they didn't know that you should never under estimate a Wichmann.

I think your reaching on your viewpoint of the handshake as well as your other views on here. Since you seem to have your rather strong viewpoints here, I am going to make a guess of my own. I work in the area of the crash site and am rather confident that Garden Terrace was having work done at the time (I think roofing). In looking at the those workers, I am going to make an educated guess in that they have had encounters with Law Enforcement in the past. Take that in account as it might have been there one and only time to get back at a cop if they were the workers that provided a statement! Let me make it clear again that with the facts I have seen I am very surprised that this did not get the chance to proceed to a criminal trial, however I think you are grasping for straws here.

Jessica Please read the post above yours. The sweating is just fact. The nature of the hand shake is what was significant.
