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 dads 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, Id 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. Theres not one of them that can name one of the last three homicide victims weve had in this city, Flynn said. But this community is at risk alright, and its not because men and women in blue risk their lives protecting it. Its at risk because we have large numbers of high-capacity, quality firearms in the hands of remorseless criminals who dont care who they shoot.

FULL TITLE - "BOOM: Milwaukee Police Chief Explodes on Black Protesters for Ignoring Crimes Greatest Racial Disparity"
"Its at risk because we have large numbers of high-capacity, quality firearms in the hands of remorseless criminals who dont care who they shoot.
Then he lost it.
It isn't the firearms that commit crimes, it is the thugs. He could have blamed the criminals, but went off on the guns instead, which makes me wonder if his 'solution' isn't to do away with "high-capacity, quality firearms".
High capacity firearms are NOT the problem, I have several as to many of my friends NON of us are using them to commit crime. The CRIMINAL element in his city is the problem and he ENABLING community in which they live.
If he was elected I see him being a “lets take the guns away from the citizens then maybe some day deal with the criminals that still have them..” type but that is a quick read he may not be..
that would be NONE.. did not mean to use french.. ;)
don’t let his tough talk fool you - he was probably ordering take out
Was he joining the Ferguson crowd?
Sounds like something Al or Jesse might say
I guess he wants more white drive-by killings too, to even things out
I did not hear him say he was against the law abiding citizens who have FA's. That would be a whole different issue if that's his position.
“Oh mother, don’t be so sentimental. People explode every day....”
He phrased it with the firearms described in some detail before bringing up criminals. That tends to indicate he sees the firearms as the problem before the criminals, and if you read enough statements by anti-gunners, they parse things the same way.
It would be interesting to know if the quality of firearms used in homicide are increasing over those used, say, 20 years ago, when the homicide rate was much higher.
This could go either way I think.
Did your teachers in school complain about you not paying attention?
Or are you just selective in what you hear or read?
I just copied and pasted what you posted, and it's clear to me what he said.
His point is, seldom are single shots fired by these indiscriminate thugs. They are spraying an area with bullets and many innocent bystanders are hit.
You’re right. He was nailing it and then he lost the plot.
NO not anarchist. I don’t want anyone to think Chief Flynn is a good guy. Chief Flynn has never been good for Milwaukee. He fired the officer who shot the mentally unstable man in Red Arrow Park, after the man grabbed the officers nightstick and beat the officer. His officers don’t like him either. Read up on Chief Flynn. As far as the 5 year old girl who was shot on her grandpa’s lap, that was obvious retaliation. Drug shooting?? Two suspects walked up to the home and opened fire. Doesn’t sound like a random shooting to me.
Flynn is a premier gun-grabber. He even testified in DC about some of the gun-control legislation.
He just had a moment of honesty here but relapsed immediately to politically correct law enforcement.
Ya better watch the video again there Joe...
Regarding the question leading up to it, he was first told ya about 80 percent of the homicides and all other crimes are committed by African Americans...
Lets keep what he was saying in context here.
