    Milwaukee Police Chief Ed Flynn, once again you failed the Officers of the Milwaukee Police Department, the Citizens of the City of Milwaukee and Milwaukee County and the State of Wisconsin. Who are you to say that because “YOU” terminated Officer Christopher Manney for one of “YOUR Rule Infractions”, that he could “Never effectively serve as a Police Officer again”?

    By doing so, you have helped to incite these people who are out there screaming to get the “Killer Pigs!!!; and you helped to encourage the feds to drag Officer Christopher Manney through another Federal investigation. But that is fine, because Officer Manney has already been dragged through the mud and all hell; it is “YOU” and “YOUR Department” and “YOUR Methods and Operations” that will be dragged through the fine tooth comb. Even if after Officer Christopher Manney, the Milwaukee Police Officer’s Association Lawyers and his private lawyers are through with you he doesn’t have “his job back” and then “ultimately a full disability retirement pension” like the other times Milwaukee has knee jerk reacted and wrongfully terminated Officers for political reasons; “YOU” have cost the City of Milwaukee Taxpayers a small fortune in how poorly you have handled this situation.

    AND THEN YOU WONDER WHY ALMOST 100% OF “YOUR” DEPARTMENT HAS VOTED NO SUPPORT OF YOU. SORRY CHIEF, A COP’S COP YOU ARE NOT; BUT A CITIZEN’S COP YOU ARE NOT EITHER. YOU ARE A MAN TRYING TO APPEASE HIS BOSS AND MAKE IT TO A PENSION, AND COULD CARE LESS ABOUT YOUR DEPARTMENT, YOUR OFFICERS, YOUR CITY’S LIABILITY OR THE CITIZEN’S YOU SERVE.

    The MPA needs to run this police management gypsy off the same way the Phoenix police union ran off an outsider jerk police chief.
