Remember that much talked-about report by the MPD this week that focused on all the problems with city of Milwaukee voting in November of 2004?
Seems it was released to a whole bunch of people before he got to see it.
Flynn is launching a full-blown internal investigation.
Does Flynn have a beef?
Sure he does.
But where is the outrage about what is in the report?
And if Flynn had seen the report first, what would he have done with it, given his comments in today’s Journal/Sentinel that the MPD is not in the business of policy recommendations? Sit on it? Alter it in any way?
Last Monday, I spent an hour on WISN resurrecting the photo ID issue. A constitutional amendment that would require photo ID needs approval from the state Senate so it can go to the voters in a statewide referendum. Senate Democrats refuse to schedule the amendment for a vote.
That was Monday.
The next day, the MPD report was released or leaked, however you want to term it.
More talk show hosts started discussing the issue.
On Thursday, Senator Joe leibham tried to bring the amendment to the floor of the Senate for a vote. Senate Democrats immediately gaveled the session to an abrupt adjournment.
I played that portion of the Senate session on WISN Friday and listeners were angry.
Milwaukee's police chief should be, too............................about what happened in November of 2004.
Chief, find out what happened and take the action you deem necessary.
Then back up your department and the findings in their report.
