UPDATE: Have the Sioux Falls Police taken the weekend off?

UPDATE: The official report is the suspect Has not been arrested. One of the 3 victims may have already died. During the briefing there was conflicting stories as to what kind of weapon was used.

There should have been an emergency presser by the Police Chief & Mayor yesterday.

No, they have not, but the people working in the communications office have;

We expect to learn more about the shooting during Monday morning’s police briefing . . .

While an active investigation is going on, no one knows how many people were shot because like Orange City, Iowa we have shut down our communications and functioning government until Monday.


We are the largest city in South Dakota, the SFPD should have held a presser this morning about the situation on one of the busiest streets in the city.

Last I checked the SFPD is responsible for public safety, that means 24/7. Should people be concerned? I don’t know because apparently they don’t work Sundays.

I think if we defunded the police in Sioux Falls, we may not notice, especially on Sundays.

I heard they had to unroll the sidewalks before they could start their investigation. I wonder if Barney made a moulage of it all:

“That’s why there is no press conference until tomorrow”…. They didn’t want to make a moulage of it all”….

Maybe they want to downplay this so that it doesn’t impact economic development and gun rights:


( and Woodstock adds: “What is this Watts or Dodge City?”… )

From his grave, Dillinger is jealous of the firepower. But don’t worry Taupeville. It happened over 40 blocks to the north. For now, Emerald Ash Borer is a greater threat to you. Keep voting in conformity. Build your wall. That ringing firepower is the sound of freedom (or, is that failure?).

Police Briefings – open M-F @ 10:30am. It’s what happens when Cruise Control Government meets Drive-by Media.

Wow Scottie, I couldn’t figure out what you were talking about, so had to go to Kelo to find out what you were so twisted about…..looks like 40, mostly peaceful Demoncrats may have had a disagreement the other night?! Odd that there don’t seem to be any witnesses? This is a problem as I don’t watch any news or read any local paper because everything is so slanted, it just pisses me off. I truly wish the media would just report the truth so I can go back to trusting them, and maybe even watching some of it.

#7 Where we at with this? on 11.12.21 at 9:34 am

Have any of the mostly peaceful Demoncrats come forward with video or evidence in this? I actually looked at trusted “news” sources, not much being reported? I figure DL has an inside track, and can give us an update?
