Bull S**t. It is not over. The people still don't know why this happened. As far as the civil suit goes the final offer is $133,000 each.(x3) This was not the first time this rogue did this exact same thing. It was witnessed multiple times by workers at the site. And this fact is in witness statements. I heard it directly by a witness looking me straight in the eye. He obviously didn't know who I was. I did not sign off on this settlement but was out voted. There is no way I will take this blood money. No, my payday will come after the next law suit aganst the city for conspireing to sweep this under the rug. Think I'm full of it? Citizens of New Ulm I know you are afraid to step forward for fear of retaliation. You should be. Intimidation is a common tactic around the country but this is New Ulm. In this department it is nothing short of bullying. did the sa

Mr. Nierengarten was born and lived in New Ulm all his life and has come accustomed to getting his way. (the New Ulm way) In this case his arrogance will be his down fall and it will take New Ulm down with it. I remember him gleefully announcing the results of the Grand Jury which was hastely called before all the evidence had been investigated. They stll haven'

haven't. No this is not over. I have the same names and address of the witnesses as they do but I followed up to find out WHY this happened. They even canceled the deposition which was set to take place 12/7/12. There's a new protocal in town, the internet. It allows the spot light to be focused in the darkest places where small fish feel big living in their tiny pond.

They won't tell you but I will and there's not a d.a.m.n thing they can do about it. They will be left quivering like smashed bugs when all is said and done.

Well? I'm waiting. Bring it.

Also know this, Myra Meyer did not die at the scene. She died of starvation after we had to pull the plug as was her wish.

Sorry for doing this in multiple comments. I do it on a Android phone which intermittently freezes up and my only choice is either post it or lose it.

and no such double jeopardy. There will be a criminal trial with multiple defendants.

The reason the police think they will get away with this is they are claiming immunity for themselves and any one that works form them.(this is legal fact) however; this provision is nullifed in the face of gross neglegence which exists here.

Buck up and take your lumps. The truth will come out and real justice will prevail. Much more severe than two weeks off and a reprimand. And there is not a d.a.m.n. thing you can do about it.

Another thing I have had to endure all this time is how the have been trying to shift blame to my mother. At the speed this cowboy cop was moving is totally the cause of this crash and the reason the car was traveling at this speed is he wanted it to. Even 24 year old Olympic athelete would have seen the squad as a block and a half away when starting the turn. They say she didn't have her turn signal on. Do you always signal when the nearest car is a block and a half away.*****no you don't. No, the blame here lays 100% on the cowboy cop. The only question is if he had been doing this with the blessing of the Chief. I have heard that he stated the cop was following procedure. Yes I am calling you out. Well?

To the family My family has also been "assaulted", literally by Matt Rasmussen ... His time and the NUPD time will come with our situation too... They also know what he did and have not made one effort to hold him accountable for his actions. I won't say much more as this is your chance to vent ... But my family supports you all ... I have personally spoken to Nancy and I know how much pain your family is in. Please don't let this define your lives ... His time will come

Thank you for your support,DS. I hope people will come forward with their stories. I know the persecuted want to but are afraid. I guess this is where the rubber meets the road. By that I mean the people will see just how high, or low, New Ulm's, "high morals"really are. It will be interesting to see who ends up with tire tracks on their backs from the bus. lol

Here is the last of my 13 part comment.The multiple posts is not a ploy to make it look like there are more comments than there are. That was merely a technical problem. I am on a Pc now. This will bring the total comments to Two. This is not the histrionic rant of a grieving man. I believe what I am saying to the point of contacting two of the witnesses about what I am doing as to warn them to watch their backs. It should be stated that my opinions are mine and mine alone and do not reflect any opinion of my family members. My statements are not for the purpose of venting or ranting about my frustration. This is a clarion call to action. I will have a blog site soon dedicated to this subject.I will post it's location when it's ready.

I pride myself on never having missed an apointment in my life so I will go now to prepare for my date with destiny. lol (Now THAT'S Histrionic!

See you on the intertubes, Dana

WOW! Unbelievable! I was starting to think they put something in your communion waffers. I was informed there is a rumor out there that I tried to commit suicide. Please go and punch whoever told you that in the nose. Anybody who knows my work knows I get the job done. If I had tried suicide you wouldn't be reading this. What I want to get done gets done and so it will be with my pursuit of justice! No wonder I wasn't getting the responses I thought I would. My blog site will be myra-brian****. I've never done one before so I don't know when it will be working properly. I do know it will be raw and uncensored and any rumors will be laid to rest and we can go about the business of getting to the truth.

Let's just save time and start this now. We can begin with this statement; I am not acquainted with any of the parties to this accident. Friday July 8th,2011 was a clear dry summer day. I was working a job in New Ulm. I was standing on the ground behind a building we were working on. I had a clear view of Garden Street. I was walking toward Garden Streat when I saw a police car heading southeast on Garden Street. The speed limit on Garden Street is 30 miles per hour. The police car had to be going between 50 to 60(ACTUALLY 72) miles per hour. There were no sirens or lights activated. As far as I could tell the police officer was not pursuing any other vehicle. I observed all this about a block prior to the accident intersection. Seconds later I heard the crash. It was a big impact. I did not hear any squealing of breaks prior to the impact. I immeadiately ran over to the intersection. The police officer was out of his vehicle, walking around the car he had just hit.

I never talked to him. The vehicle that was hit by the police car had two people in it. It was obvious that they were critically injured. I stayed back as the EMTs came and did what they could. I had been working at this job for SEVERAL WEEKS PRIOR to this accident. I noticed SEVERAL POLICE CARS, I can't be sure if it was the same one, go FLYING down Garden Street. The police car was ALWAYS SPEEDING AND NEVER HAD ANY LIGHTS OR SIRENS activated. I never saw any vehicle being pursuded. I wondered WHAT WAS UP WITH THAT? About a week or so after the accident,the State Patrol spent a day at the accident scene. They had Garden Street blocked off and were driving at various speeds,some really fast. In my opinion, the speed of the police car along with the LACK OF SIRENS AND LIGHTS was the main cause of this accident.

Ok, I'll start it out. I have heard the Chief stated that procedures were followed. I have to ask what kind of procedure this is? Perhaps the Chief can enlighten us. The several times this cop,(or mabe several cops), was observed performing this "procedure" no fleeing suspect was observed. Come to think of it I don't recall anyone noticing a fleeing suspect before the crash. Hmm. That's odd. The cop said he was chaseing someone didn't he. And it would seem my mother would have noticed a car speeding by just feet from her car and this would have put her on aleart. Certainly Brian would have noticed. Odd. Let's figure this out. In order to cover all senarios I like to start with the absurd and work my way back. What's the most absurd senario I can think of. Oh here we go here's one. From his hilltop perch the cop can see for almost a mile up to the 5th north intersection. You could see a car turning from 5th north onto Garden Street.

If the cop WANTED to crash into that particular car knowing it would be turning into that particular driveway he most likely would take a few practice runs to get the timing right. Ok I'm pretty sure we can rule out a hit. Of course mom,was an Atheist as am I and you know how nuts religious freaks can get. Some families just have bizzare nut jobs in their lineage I guess. I suppose the other end of the spectrum would be that he was just getting his kicks. Ok we have the parameters. Any ideas for senarios somewhere in between? Mabe we should just ask the Chief what these procedures are and what they are used for. You guys just chime in if you want. I'm going to get a shower' do some food and grab a nap for awhile.
