Word has it that Milwaukee Police Chief Ed Flynn is in line for an appointment to the board of directors of GM by President Obama. Why so?
Well, he's apparently rejecting the advice of the attorney general of Wisconsin, and has instructed his officers to "take down" anyone found carrying a pistol openly (which is perfectly legal there), disarm them, and only THEN figure out if they're carrying legally.
Now think about this one for a minute; he's telling his officers to attack armed men without provocation, a deed that really ought to provoke, you know, an armed response. It's the kind of brilliant thinking that could land a lot of officers and citizens in the morgue, and fits perfectly with the kind of "thinking" President Blago wants to enshrine at General Motors.
Seriously, I hope and pray that this ends without someone being killed, and that it also ends with Mr. Flynn's firing. Even apart from his unconstitutional views on gun control, he's demonstrated that he has no clue about responsible police tactics.
