Fire from Both Sides: Police Chief of Milwaukee to Retire

found online by Raymond

From Wisconsin conservative James Wigderson:

Handing out a bunch of statistics about how his ten years in office improved the crime situation, Milwaukee Police Chief Ed Flynn announced his retirement. Flynn’s last day is February 16.

In recent years, Flynn found himself a police chief with only one ally, Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett. Frustration with his tenure in office grew so great the Milwaukee Common Council overrode Barrett’s veto to give themselves the ability to fire the police chief. That grasping of authority waits on the state legislature.

On the flip side, conservatives abandoned their support for Flynn after he spoke out against the state’s concealed carry law, defended not pursuing straw buyer gun cases, and the infamous “no chase” policy that has led stolen car crime to bleed into the suburbs.
