Earlier this month, Milwaukee Police Chief Edward Flynn angered protesters in his community for being on his phone during a meeting about the officer-involved shooting death of Dontre Hamilton, 31.
When reporters confronted Flynn about it after the meeting, he went on a tirade.
“Well I was on my phone, yes. That is true. I was following developments about a 5-year-old girl sitting on her dad’s 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, I’d take some of their invective more seriously.”
The video has exploded online, going viral today.
