SSCC #329 – Milwaukee

Remember the Wisconsin police chief Ed Flynn who said this?

“My message to my troops is if you see anybody carrying a gun on the
streets of Milwaukee, we’ll put them on the ground, take the gun away
and then decide whether you have a right to carry it.”

Well, it has become apparent how he feels the law applies to him and his department.  It’s no wonder he didn’t want the law abiding victims carrying weapons, they might fight back.

Nevertheless, the Milwaukee Police Department is under “the most
sweeping investigation… in at least a decade”

to the Milwaukee Sentinel Journal, which
also notes 13 former Milwaukee cops have been convicted of federal
crimes in the last 7 years. At least seven officers (suspended, not
fired) are under currently under investigation for potential sexual
assault and civil rights violations

from illegal cavity searches. At least one defendant
subject to an illegal search has

been released.

See, this is unsurprising from this department.  When your chief is making statements like previously seen about how his department should treat law abiding citizens can any of this be surprising.

State Sponsored Criminal Count #329: Ed Flynn

Because police officers can do whatever they want to whoever they want and the law is merely to prevent victims from fighting back.

    This is why I think someone’s opinion on gun ownership is a decent litmus test in general, it says a lot about them I think.
