Skip to comments.Wisconsin's Top Criminal (Police Chief dismisses Constitution)
Posted on 04/28/2009 7:14:37 PM PDT by marktwain
Milwaukee, Wisconsin Chief of Police Ed Flynn is hopefully going to be out of a job soon. This is a good thing. Take a deep breath and read this excerpt from a recent Associated Press release.
MADISON (AP) Milwaukees police chief said today hell go on telling his officers to take down anyone with a firearm despite Attorney General J.B. Van Hollens finding that people can carry guns openly if they do it peacefully.
Please take the time to read the entire piece (JPFO copy) This is very important information for any gun owner.
Chief Flynn then goes on to further dig his own professional grave:
My message to my troops is if you see anybody carrying a gun on the streets of Milwaukee, well put them on the ground, take the gun away and then decide whether you have a right to carry it.
Maybe Flynns lackeys will also start blowing out tires before checking for drivers licenses?
Its been said before: When the police make the laws, its called a Police State.
To get some idea of where this type of criminal arrogance can lead, read JPFOs exposé of how Hitlers gun control laws in Germany were actually imported into our own Gun Control Act of 1968. (see "Gun Control" - Gateway to Tyranny ). Its always for public safety.
Back to Milwaukee: Wisconsin has had legal open carry for 137 years. This law isnt something recently cooked up by the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy. The Attorney General simply reminded this particular Goon-In-Blue that he (and his troops?) must now obey the law.
Flynns idiocy continues as he asserts that felons carrying guns will now do so openly! Like the cops dont know who each of these guys are from mug shots that would cover a pool table? Please! Flynn should pray that the dirt bags pack openly! A slam dunk arrest and conviction!
But there is deeper, more sinister, issue at work here. It is a somber matter that few Americans are at all aware of: No police officer has ANY duty whatsoever to protect you!
JPFO has done meticulous research on this troubling fact of life. (See "Dial 911 and Die") A huge cover up of the truth is taking place in Milwaukee (and anywhere else the police would like to see you disarmed).
Chief Flynn, in typical GovCrim authoritarian style, is only telling you part of the story. Hes telling you that you are not allowed to protect yourself, but NOT telling you that he and his men have no duty to do so!
Directly related to this state of affairs, a JPFO funded lawsuit has been filed in Federal Court against the city of West Milwaukee and three police officers. On its face it seems like no contest. Three cops unlawfully disarmed and detained a peaceable man (exercising his right to carry a firearm openly in Wisconsin), and confiscated his private property in the process. There were some other denigrating rogue cop mind games involved as well. (Refer to this PDF file)
Seeing that the Attorney Generals finding hasnt yet slapped Chief Flynn awake, perhaps it will take more. If the cops lose this civil rights suit, it will send a sharp edged (and expensive) message to Wisconsin police: Leave openly armed and peaceful citizens alone.
But be careful! Many other Wisconsin citizens will find discomfort in this court victory for gun owners. Guns scare them. Theyve been effectively brainwashed (many of them from their earliest years) by the victim disarmament bottom feeders. (Read Sarah Thompson's essay - "Raging Against Self Defense")
The political pressure to BAN open carry in Wisconsin will shift into overdrive. And you can bet the vermin like Sarah Brady and Paul Helmke of Handgun Control Inc. will come slithering, flapping, and cawing over the Wisconsin horizon.
And then, because Wisconsin is one of only two States that prohibit concealed carry, it will come down to open carry versus concealed carry. And this, despite the fact that the Second Amendment makes absolutely no distinction between the two. Please take advantage of JPFOs free download, the best explanation of the Second Amendment you can find. Share it with friends and family.
Herein lies the potential danger to your liberties, whether you live in Wisconsin or not: When you carry openly in Wisconsin (each state is certainly a bit different) there is no gun registration involved. It is just as legal to carry a legitimately unregistered firearm as a registered one. More importantly, you havent had to register YOURSELF as a gun owner.
On the other hand, if open carry in Wisconsin is banned by an act of the Wisconsin legislature (leading other corrupted States to mimic the maneuver), and concealed carry takes its place, an immense step towards gun registration will have slipped into play. Because concealed carry will require a license, and the mandatory registration of both you and your concealed firearm. Again, go visit the link to those Nazi German gun control laws.
For twenty years, JPFO has fervently advocated the abolition of ALL gun registration. Take every gun control law off the books. All of them. The abuse of firearms registration lists over the last one hundred years by governments-gone-bad is horrific. So many times the story has been: Register, Confiscate, Exterminate. (See JPFO's Genocide Chart)
If a convicted criminal is such a danger to society that he should be prohibited from owning or carrying a firearm, WHY IS HE EVEN ON THE STREETS? The same goes for certified lunatics. These are such common sense questions! Why arent the deceptive cops, or the sleazy gun prohibitionists, asking them?
To a great degree the answer lies in what Gus Cotey calls the Security Monopolist cabal. (See "Seven Varieties of Gun Control Advocate") Cops like Flynn want to expand their power via the reduction of yours. They want a dependent, unarmed populace whose taxes will fund a burgeoning number of their troops.
And then Milwaukees Police Chief Flynn and his sycophantic storm troopers will really get a chance to decide who to take down.
“I am JPFO does good work.” should be “JPFO does good work”.
Flynn is not well.....
But when the Constitution of the United States says your right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed, that means nothing if the police don't like it. </s>
This turkey has been in his current job since January 2008. Before that, he was a police chief in Massachusetts. He also worked for good ol’ Mitt Romney.
No, he is merely a piece of S**T.

That’s REALLY going to encourage peaceful responses. [/sarc]
And it should be met with violence, IMO, because that sort of action is akin to the police stopping you on the way to your car, by way of tackling, and then determining whether or not you were going to use it for vehicular homicide.
Well, then there is that.....
Only well-trained professionals in the military and the police need guns.
History proves that civilians are safer without them.
>”Foreign Enemies And Traitors”
I look forward to reading it.
I’m somewhat concerned that our government, all three branches, are traitors.
GAHH!! Who the hell does this prick think he is?!
Someone needs to sue him into oblivion.

Sounds like a challenge to the good gun owners of Wisconsin. About 100 open carry law abiding citizens walking through the town just WAITING for a cop to “take them down” so they can sue the pants off of the city.
This is a lie; how many others are there here?
A concealed carry permit does not require you to register your firearms.
FReepers are free to use this image anyway they desire to further understanding of the importance of the 2nd Amendment.
Looks like we have a little tyrant in Wisconsin.
Of course the country is full of them today.
In some states it does.
And in some states, the carry license is ONLY good for the individual weapon(s) listed on it.
One must be direct.
Commissar Flynn seems to have confused himself with Kaiser Wilhelm. Perhaps counseling is in order?
Im somewhat concerned that our government, all three branches, are traitors.
I think your concern is well justified.
“Because concealed carry will require a license, and the mandatory registration of both you and your concealed firearm.”
The author is speculating on the future, asserting what they believe to be true. That does not make it a lie. Laws have been passed both ways.
This “officer” should be arrested for OFFICIAL OPPRESSION under color of law!
NOTE: The 2nd Amendment is SELF-incorporated to all government entities at every level. It is MORE ABSOLUTE than the 1st Amendment, or any of the others, because the wording forbids not only CONGRESS, but ANYONE from infringing on it. The 1st says Congress shall make no law.... The 2nd say shall NOT be infringed! Period! End of debate!
WI Henry Bowmans need to add the good chief to the menu for their local hog farm.
If I were in WI, I’d be all about starting up a Grand Jury to do so.
He has the typical “Massachusetts Police State” mentality. He is unqualified to serve in any law enforcement position except in Mass. (and some communist countries).
I am so glad I fled the tyrany and facism of Mass. 30 something years ago and now live free.
Better than having Barney Frank on his back...
Milwaukee's police chief said today he'll go on telling his officers to take down anyone with a firearm despite Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen's finding that people can carry guns openly if they do it peacefully... "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." Maybe Flynn's lackeys will also start blowing out tires before checking for drivers licenses?
In Texas you have to let them know if you are carrying an automatic or a semi-auto weapon - if they know what you are carrying, then they know what to expect when they come to get them!
I am not sure what other requirements are specific to other states, but I don’t think we should be required to get a permit at all!
The Milwaukee Police Department has a long a serious history of corruption.
His message to his “troops?” He thinks he’s a tinpot general, and his fellow citizens are the enemy.
So this is who Mitt Romney appointed as his Secretary of Public Safety in Massachusetts? Interesting.
The guy is so politically correct you have to use RealPlayer to watch his swearing in ceremony.
DON’T click on the video at his website unless you want a million turgid realplayer programs and updates installed on your computer.
Besides looking like he has the drink taken, Flynn needs to write his oath of office 100 times on the blackboard and then have Sister Mary Murgatroyd slap his gun hand with a steel ruler.
"Message to his troops," indeed! Apparently, Milwaukee was able to avoid appointing an Affirmative Action Casshole, along the lines of an Asian female transvestite version of Chief Moose to this post, is that they have found an even more ridiculous white man.
What a bloody wanker.
It does in some states.
That said, the Second Amendment is my permit. And it doesn't.
