the articles about james fullerton make it sound like he's the victim not the offender it sounds like he's already guilty what happened to innocent til proven guilty? sounds like someone is deliberatly out to ruin this man's life with the help of the media

i worked at buds repair for 12 years and we haul alot of things for people,my sister called me and ask if i could give her friend a ride to pickup a gaspump he recieved for tearing down a house and garage(old barn),i told her yes if the guy was going to pay for gas and my time,we met at candace moe's house in rice lake.my sister introduced me to her friend (brandon)who then told myself,my sister and candace that he gets this gas pump for tearing down the buildings by poskin and he needed a ride to get the pump and had it sold to an antique shop in cumberland wi.and he would pay me when he sold it ,so him and i with my truck and buds repairs small trailer went to get this gaspump,when we got there i see the house and barn garage were half torn down,no doors on the garage and the only thing in there was a old junk rusty gas pump.so him and i loaded it onto the trailer and headed for cumberland,when we got to the antique shop they didnt want the gas pump it was to junky,so we headed back to rice lake and i told this brandon that jim willert from rice lake might be interested in it for parts as he collects pumps and he might want to give him a call,so i dropped brandon and the gas pump off at candaces house where we left from and i went back to work,mad because the kid didnt have any money and it just costed me 40.00 for gasoline.

the next day i stopped over to candaces to see if this brandon had atleast my gas money,and he had sold the pump i guess and left candace 35.00 for gas money i spent,and thats the first and last time i ever seen this kid. so on april 13th i sat in jail all nite til the next morning at 11:00 am the jailer calls in the cell and says strenke its your lucky day you can go.and they released me.thats it.i guess my sister called the investigator and told him it was all here fault ,that i didnt even know the kid and the kid said it was givin to him for doing the work tearing down these buildings.
i also worked on a dairy farm in rice lake for a couple years now,about 2 months after the gas pump drama,the farm i worked for (dan dostal) who rents the farm from an older farmer(john oberg) told me that someone had stolen the lift arms off the back of the old john deere tractor of john obergs.a couple weeks went by and dostal was acting like he was mad at me.so i asked his wife charleen why dan was acting like that towards me.she then told me that travis busch an 18 yr old kid from rice lake told dan that he had purchased the stolen tractor arms from me.i dont know the kid but i know his parents own the adventure tavern in rice lake.so i went right over to terry and ruth busch's house and knocked on the door not even knowing if they had a kid named travis,ruth answerd the door and i asked her if travis was around,she said yes he is shane come on in.we were standing in the kitchen and ruth yelled downstairs five times saying shane strenke is here and wants to talk to you.i then tried to tell her what was going on and she lifted her hands up and said she didnt even want to here about it,i then peeked around the corner looking down the stairs and there was travis standing there .as he seen me he quick got away from the bottom of the stairs.ruthy finally went downstairs to get him and she came back up and said travis was sick and he gave her his cell phone number and said for me to call him..two hours later i called him and he answerd.i said travis what the hell are you accussing me for stealing lift arms off a tractor at obergs farm for,he said because you did,i said travis ibetter not get blamed for this shit,i then said so travis whoed you get them arms from.he said two guys dropped them off in his driveway and said everything was taken care of and paid for and all he had to do was bring them up to curtis johnsons in shell lake.i said what the hell are you talking about travis,he said you were at johnsons,i said what?travis said you were up at curtis's place so dont fuckin lie and try to act like you didnt do it and he hung up on me and wouldnt answer the phone again.i then went back to the farm and told dan dostal what had just happand and dan said that he seen travis busch at the feedmill in haugen, that his grandpa owns where travis works,and travis told dan that he bought the arms from me at the bungalow bar during the ice races.dan said we got the arms back.so i wanted to know how.he said john oberg ran a add in the paper for a reward to get the arms back and a guy brought them back and the guy had to tell the police who he got them from,which was travis..dan then told me the guy that brought the arms back was at the farm a year ago and bought some arms off a different tractor that oberg had advertised in the newspaper and while the guy was there taking off the different arms he asked oberg if he could buy the arms off the john deere tractor.the same ones that got stolen!oberg said no them werent for sale..so dostal said he didnt need my help anymore (fired me)because he really believed travis.

i then called travis back and got his answering maching and i said travis so i bought the arms from you at the bugalow bar huh and i swore alittle telling him i better not get accussed of this.and i called a seacond time and left a message,never treated him or said i was after him or nothin.so i called all day lokking for a guy that restores tractors in the shell lake area.finally found someone by the name of curtis johnson who works for the DNR i guess and restores tractors.so i called and curtises wife answerd the phone.i said hi iam the person that is getting accussed of stealing the tractor arms your husband purchased from travis busch do you know him?she said o yes we know travis and his mom and dad very well we just were up there a few weeks ago for supper and my husband asked travis if he knew where to get some john deere lift arms,and travis said yes i can get ya them..she said the next evening travis came to their house late one evening and had the lift arms,but she would pay him the 1000.00 because he didnt have all the parts that go with the arms,and he said he would go get them,they were in his girlfriend kami weavers grandpas shed whom was with travis at the time,so they left and came back the next day with the rest of the parts and we gave travis the 1000.00 she said.and we would like that money back.travis told investigators that he gave me 950.00 for the arms and kept 50.00 for the gas and inconvenance for running them up to curtis.and he couldnt get ahold of me to get the money back because i wouldnt answer his calls.i read that in the police report when i get accussed about 3 weeks from this time.NOTE:I STILL AT THAT TIME HAVE not been talked to by anyone im digging and digging this info up myself because im scared to death and mad about this whole thing.so anyway curtis johnson walks in the door and his wife hands the phone to him and i ask him the same as i asked his wife and he wouldnt hardly even talk to me.but his wife already told me everything.I then went back out to the farm to tell dan dostal that i think curtis johnson told travis busch to go try and buy them arms from oberg and travis just said he did and stole them and told curtis he paid for them.or curtis wouldnt have brought them back if he would have told travis to steal them!!but curtis had to tell travis where the arms were or travis would have never known were to get the arms at.and curtis is the only one that knew the arms were at that farm..dan dostal then told me that investigators were at the farm and went thru everything that i had stored on the farm property

he said he sent them to james renikee. and james dont have them.so my dad gave me 500.00 and had me go to owen williams whom was just goin into surgery and sent letters to the courts for speedy trial on the tractor arms case and to dismiss the other two cases.he then got out of surgeury and we went to court and we made jury trial dates.then back to court for final pretrial and owen told the judge that we needed to make dates for trial and the judge laughed and said owen you already did that.and we were 2 weeks to the first jury trial on 6-6-07 which owen had set the 2 felony intimidating a witness cases for jury trial first.i called his office and had to make an appointment to come and see him because i was getting scared and i knew that the theft of the tractor arms should be tried first.and when i was at owens office he was very confused about the whole thing and i dont blame him.i was to but ive investigated this whole thing for a year now.owen was telling me that i was chared with the two felonies before the theft of the arms and i said no owen i wasent and he said ill do the talkinhear i can see your upset about all this.the theft was 8-15 and the intimidating case were 8-29 and then he said that i had to comeup with 200.00 so he could send out witness supenas and we had 7 days and he was trying to supena my sister and candace for the first jury trial which had nothing to do with them.i like owen used him for years but he was not ready for this yet.i called owens office and told his secratary that i couldnt come up with the 200.00 this fast and asked what i should do and she called back and said get a public defender.so i went down to the public defenders office 4 days before jury trial and said i needed to get a public defender and to secratary there called the judge and the judge called owen and told owen he wasent letting him off the case.i said i wanted a different attourny.owen called me and said he wasent going to beable to get off this case as soon as 6-6-07 so we will do the best we can and i need to take alittle resposibilty and get whe witness to showup myself on 6-6-07 and he wasent sure if this case had any witnesses or maybe the ones we talked about earlier.and said see ya buy..well on the afternoon 6-5-07 investigator dave kuffel called me and said i didnt have to go to court tomarrow because the charges were all dropped the he had filed on me.because he has really read it all in the last few hours and knows travis busch did this and he would of been mad to if someone accused him of doing this...and i see it says that all charges are dismissed with prejudice.what ever that means..dan dostal will write out a statement that kuffel told him to get rid of all my things because they were more than likly stolen anyway.the thing is is 3 riding lawnmowers they got rid of were a customers they brought in to be serviced over the winter.and they are not very happy...
anyway its been a year now and busch finally came forward and had to tell the truth..iam sure glad i investigated this whole thing myself and didnt get one of their gay bail jumping charges or i would be in prison right now for something i knew nothing about...

They seem to think that y0ur guilty by association around here. If your seen talking to someone...yup you have to be in cahoots with em! I have been at the hands of these people for years and they just wont leave me alone! Dang I am too old for this. Then I get tossed in with the real criminals but stay longer and for nothing in comparison.Its like they dont believe what really occured what about ME? I guess I dont matter...let the abuser get away with murder basically.

I hear from friends that the investigators talk with people all the time in the hallway. Anyone can overhear what is said. Not very professional of them.

Not very professional is right, Most of the stories they hear are things made up by the people in jail thinking there going to get out early for being lying little snitch bitches,
The day i went to small claims court against travis busch the investigator pulled me over when i left the court house and gave me the charter bundle,3 traffic citations,i only had one safty chain,taillight was out on my trailer and i didnt have a license plate on the front or my truck,and tried to give me a ticket for no rear view mirror,i said i have door mirrors,so i got out of that one,
