Skip to comments.Former Black Diamond Officer, Husband Say Chief Used Gay Slurs

Scott Oak and his husband, Jamie Smith, said they heard Black Diamond Police Chief Jamey Kiblinger use the word "fag" repeatedly.
"Cops can talk rough, and I understand things like that, but she used it to personally attack me," said Oak, who was a Black Diamond police officer. He left in 2012.
His husband said that he heard Kiblinger use the slur in front of them at a work-related party back in 2011. "When she said that, other officers looked around, and she looked around and she put her hand over her mouth like, Oh my gosh. She knew she said it she caught herself saying it," said Smith, who is also a former Montana State Trooper.
"I took off running and that's when I heard from the fence line Chief Kiblinger say, Oh, he runs like such a fag and she's laughing and joking about it," said Oak.
He filed a complaint against Kiblinger this week, calling on the city to open a new investigation against her. Oak filed complaints in the past, but the city's previous mayor didn't demote or punish Kiblinger. She was only given a written reprimand.
"As a former state trooper, I've seen more thorough investigations done on parking complaints than on this case," said Smith.
The city administrator said that investigation is closed.
The city has received new complaints against the chief for her behavior, but the administrator said she is still reviewing the complaints and cannot say yet if a new investigation will be opened.
"We've been together 19 years, and to have her say something -- have her say 'fag' about somebody you love -- it hurt. It really hurt," said Smith, who married Oak last year.
KIRO 7 obtained emails from a public disclosure request that showed at least two other former Black Diamond police officers sent emails to the current mayor, Dave Gordon, saying they also heard the gay slurs. Calls and emails to the current mayor were not returned.
Kiblinger was not at the police station when we went there to ask her about the allegations.
Oak filed a tort claim against the city last year along with former Black Diamond police Officer Eric Weinreich.
Weinreich claimed Kiblinger sexually harassed him.
"She actually told me in front of other people there to go into another room and take a picture of it to prove size," said Weinreich.
Back in October, KIRO 7 asked Kiblinger about the allegations at her house. She said, "No. No thank you," and shut her door.
According to city clerk records, Kiblinger is the highest paid salaried employee on city staff. She makes $138,391 annually.
"People of Black Diamond deserve better," said Smith.
People are more than a little oversensitive these days...sheesh
Boo hoo! Grow up. Sticks and stones.
Oh no, the world is coming to an end....
Read the headline.
Dog bites man story. What straight people, when the subject comes up, don’t make a few homosexual slur type of comments?
Mom, they called me a name.
Fags are such cry babies...
The pussification of the US continues at a constant, steady rate...
Black Diamond, other than the police chief, is a liberal hellhole (not far from Seattle). Also, the Catholic parish priest is openly homosexual (or the one was a few years ago).
Oh poor baby umm or should I say poor fag? While I don’t support police insulting people and I’ve never had a bad experience with it myself its hardly a cardinal sin. its amazing that the people who express such a worry about legislating morality would have every manner of speaking and thought regulated to suit them. We need to stop going along with the wusses and the whiners and start sending them to the corner to suck their thumbs.
“Oh, he runs like such a fag “
I am very sensitive to the plight of the homosexual these days. That’s why I always call them “British cigarettes” rather than f@gs. Much less harsh. I am a kind and considerate person you see.
When will homosexualists be taken to task for using hateful antibreeder and antiChristian hate rhetoric and using taxpayer funds to make anti-Christian works like P!ss Christ and the Madonna & Child portrait made out of elephant dung?

Is she dating Bill Clinton?
They’re having a gay old time....
Mommie, she’s looking at me.
I’m 72. My grandmother favorite expression when she had a really busy day was that she was fagged out. Would Granny ever be in trouble today.
