Chief Flynn On Decision to Reinstate Fired Officer

Statement from Milwaukee Police Chief Edward A. Flynn on the Milwaukee Fire and Police Commission overturning his firing of Richard Schoen:

 ”We in the Milwaukee Police Department proudly hold ourselves to a Code of Conduct and we would expect the Board of Fire and Police Commissioners to support us in that effort. I recommended the firing of this officer for excessive use of force and I am disappointed in last night’s ruling. There is no place for this conduct in policing and I will not be deterred from upholding the standards of the Milwaukee Police Department.”
