New Sioux Falls Police Officers

Eight new officers were sworn in. Six Males and two females. I’m not sure if any of them are minorities.

I decided to do a little research on our local TV stations to see how they breakdown in these matters. I only counted the ON-AIR personalities, this is what I found.

ALL STATIONS COMBINED: 49 TOTAL • 32 MEN • 17 WOMEN • 4 MINORITIES

KELOLAND-TV: 21 TOTAL • 14 MEN • 7 WOMEN • O MINORITIES

KSFY-TV: 14 TOTAL • 10 MEN • 4 WOMEN • 3 MINORITIES

KDLT-TV: 14 TOTAL • 8 MEN • 6 WOMEN • 1 MINORITY

Not that this has any correlation, but I just thought it was interesting. Also not shown in the numbers are the LGBTQ community, which a few of the stations do have.

Instead of hiring minorities, KELO just keeps showing that clip of them interviewing MLK, Jr., back in January of 1961:

( – and Woodstock states: “‘Knife and Fork Club?’….. The closest thing we would have to something like that today would be an axe bar, or maybe a pawn shop with a sub sandwich eatery, which also offers a free tattoo.”)

Nope, not at all….Pointing out peoples race is not racism. Asking them about their sexuality would also be against the law in hiring practices, but what the hell, they need to be categorized for you to feel better right?

I could go on with all the other categories you chose to be a bigot about in this post, but it would be pointless.

It’s fun watching you crazy liberals eat your own.

Well, LJL, I finally got you. I have been waiting for awhile. Hook, line and sinker. No where in my post do I say we need more minorities, women or gay people in our press or police force. Believe it or not, I am a person who believes in ‘qualified’ people and I could care less about your creed, sex, ethnic background or sexual preference. I know you think I am a raging liberal, but I am not. I try really hard, and I fail, a lot, but I try to judge people on face value. My point is I wanted to know what my readers thought by giving them the facts. My biggest issue with ‘diversity’ in out city is that we don’t seek it out. Maybe a black gay female doesn’t want to be a police officer here, but are we allowing them to apply? Are we opening up to them? Or are we just seeking out MPs from the military? I don’t know. We can’t have a clear grasp on what represents US in this community, if we don’t offer it. Are we offering it? I don’t think we are. Prove me wrong.

LJL, what is even more fun is watching you crazy conservatives destroy yourselves over the selfishness of one man. The Trump show has been very entertaining over the last couple of months.

Thats s shit load of back peddling. Hiring a person because she is a gay black female is also against the law and racist. SO how would we know if she didn’t apply?

Yep, you sure did set a trap. Do you mind if hang some drapes in this room in your head you let me stay rent free?

Trump? Huh? Your smarter than using a Trump rant in this type of debate. Might as well site Hitler while your at it.

You counted the gay and non white people in our local news organization AND you posted your tally on your blog…You got racism on the brain and I really doubt you were brought up that way. Consider your daily influences.

“Trump? Huh? Your smarter than using a Trump rant in this type of debate. Might as well site Hitler while your at it.”

So LJL, are you suggesting a link?
