    You know this campaign has jumped the shark when conservatives are trumpeting a union press release. There was no vote from the membership of the FOP, many police officers and family members are irate at this press release. Law enforcement does support precinct policing, Loetscher’s ads never mentioned “local,” although the police chief has said this is the direction we’re heading. If law enforcement didn’t support this form of policing it wouldn’t exist in communities like Sioux Falls across the nation. The union crossed the line here, it’s just hilarious Dakota War College is suddenly pro-labor.

      Damage control time.

      “If law enforcement didn’t support this form of policing it wouldn’t exist in communities like Sioux Falls across the nation.” Back this claim up.

      If that’s the case, you know Democrat Jolene Loetscher’s campaign is in complete free fall mode when a union press release rolls the dem under the bus.

      I’ve always viewed the FOP to be more about supporting police officers than advancing a union agenda myself.

          Still trying to figure out if you’re a bigot? You spend a lot of time and share many of your thoughts on SD blogs, you should be defending what you’ve said.

      Kinda weak. If I’m reading correctly, it hasn’t been implemented yet. When and if it does, SF should watch to see how successful it is. I have my doubts about this type of policing and about your claims. Was it Paul or Jo who thought it might be a possibility for the future of SF, but currently not the priority?

      Any other examples for “across the nation”? Don’t need links, just city names I can do the rest;)
