Watch Police Chief Drop Truth Bomb Shattering The Left’s Anti-Police Narrative
Milwaukee Police Chief Edward Flynn dropped a truth bomb on reporters who were looking to grab anti-cop headlines from him.
Milwaukee Police Chief Edward Flynn’s viral moment from 2014 regarding shootings in his city caught the country’s attention. He passionately hit on all the right points and called out the media for its witch hunt on the police. Six years later, Chief Flynn’s video deserves to go viral again as his message is even more relevant today as it shatters the Left’s growing anti-police narrative.
What ‘Defund The Police’ Supporters Don’t Realize
‘Defund the Police’ supporters need to take notice of this video. They need to be aware of how police officers put their lives on the line every day when responding to calls.
Flynn grabbed the media’s attention in his completely off-the-cuff speech. The reporters couldn’t keep the shocked looks off their faces. The press were thirsty for an anti-police headline but Chief Flynn served them up some truth.
They had been owned and humiliated for not caring about a five-year-old girl who was shot in the head while sitting on her dad’s lap.
Just like today in Minneapolis, it was a tense time for Milwaukee Police Department. An officer had been involved in a fatal shooting of Dontre Hamilton, a Black man. Flynn fired the officer involved, but the union was appealing that decision to the board.
Police Chief Sets Media Straight
During a Fire and Police Commission meeting, Flynn received notification of the child’s shooting. He looked at his phone so he could learn more. Then, a reporter accused the Chief of being disrespectful for checking his phone.

That’s when Flynn set them straight and called out their hypocrisy.
“Well, I was on my phone and yes, that’s true,” Flynn said as he was about to drop a bomb on the reporters.
“I was following developments with a 5-year-old little girl sitting on her dad’s lap who just got shot in the head by a drive-by shooting. And if some of the people here gave a good goddamn about the victimization of people in this community by crime, I’d take some of their invective more seriously.”
Flynn pointed out how the media was completely obsessed with officer-involved shootings. Even though the department was holding the officer responsible, it still wasn’t enough for the headline hungry reporters.
He called them to the mat for not knowing anything about other victims of shootings.
Media Focus On Police Shootings, Ignore Homicide Victims
“Now they know all about the last three people that have been killed by the Milwaukee Police Department over the course of the last several years,” Flynn passionately told the crowd. “There’s not one of them who can name one of the last three homicide victims we’ve had in this city.”
The reporter’s faces completely changed as Flynn continued. They looked not only shocked but embarrassed as he continued holding their feet to the fire for unbalanced reporting
“We’re going up there and there’s a bunch of cops processing a scene of a dead kid, and they’re the ones who are going to be out there patrolling and stopping suspects that may have guns under the front seats. They’re the ones that are going to take the risks to their lives to try to clean this thing up,” Flynn said.
Police Chief Flynn has retired since this video garnered millions of views. But, his speech is still a very important one.
Six years later we are still spinning the same tires and having the same problems. That’s why the video is so important to watch again – it still rings true.
