Wow. He let them have it. Enjoy.
Earlier this month, Milwaukee Police Chief Edward Flynn was verbally attacked by protesters in his community for being on his cellphone during a Fire and Police Commission meeting related to the officer-involved shooting death of Dontre Hamilton, 31. When reporters confronted Flynn about the cellphone incident after the meeting, he not only revealed that he had a good reason to be on it, but he also went on a tirade about the “greatest racial disparity in the city of Milwaukee.”
“Well I was on my phone, yes. That is true. I was following developments about a 5-year-old girl sitting on her dad’s lap who just got shot in the head by a drive-by shooting,” Flynn said angrily. “If some of the people gave a good goddamn about the victimization of people in this community by crime, I’d take some of their invective more seriously.”
“The greatest racial disparity in the city of Milwaukee is getting shot and killed — hello!” he added.
“Now, they know all about the last three people who have been killed by the Milwaukee Police Department in the course of the last several years. There’s not one of them that can name one of the last three homicide victims we’ve had in this city,” Flynn said. “But this community is at risk alright, and it’s not because men and women in blue risk their lives protecting it. It’s at risk because we have large numbers of high-capacity, quality firearms in the hands of remorseless criminals who don’t care who they shoot.”
