Last night at the city council meeting a citizen noticed the normal security guards were NOT at the meeting and replaced with some off duty SFPD detectives. She asked Chief Thum about it and he said that they all quit the same day (Aprox 10). She also did some asking around today and it seems to be a disagreement about salaries. I guess this also includes the mayor’s security at City Hall. Who is going to protect his mini-fridge now?!

8 Thoughts on “Has the private security detail for the City of Sioux Falls all quit?

    “That reminds me, didn’t someone steal a Coke from his mini-fridge?”…. “It’s probably the same guys who stole the Pink Pig BBQ from Karl’s”…. #UnsolvedMysteries
    (… “Wait a minute, a Coke?…. “A BBQ, which might equate a steak, and what about a baked potato, too?”) #AreYouThinkingWhatIamThinking?

    It’s a problem when police refuse to protect the mayor and council. Do they know there’s going to be an LBGTQ demonstration?

    Wait a minute, I thought corporatists were like communists, but without a standing army. Frankly, we might have to rethink all of this.

    They were making just slightly more than the teenaged lifeguards at the pools. If they left, I’m not surprised.

    Constitutional democracies are rarely destroyed by a single blow. Their citizens often sleepwalk into catastrophe, discovering too late that a degree of timely vigilance could have preserved their system of self-rule.

    Sioux Falls and South Dakota are just sleepwalking into authoritarianism with the right wing nuttery.

    Then David was right. The zombie thing is for real. Plus, there’s nothing worse, then a zombie with some right wing cutlery.
