The 2014 Video You Should Watch Right Now.

Donald Trump Jr. retweeted this 2014 video of Milwaukee’s since-retired Police Chief Edward Flynn at a press conference answering why he was being “disrespectful” to “some people” by talking on his cell phone instead of being more “attentive” to them as they discussed the fatal shooting of Dontre Hamilton – a Black man – in Red Arrow Park by a White police officer.

Chief Flynn, after admitting he was on his cellphone, provided this brutally honest and emotional response to the reporters:

“They all know about the last three [Black] people killed by the Milwaukee Police Department over the course of the last several years, there’s not one of them who can name one of the last three homicide victims we’ve had in this city.”

It’s unfortunate (and, a sad commentary on violence) that his words from 2014 still resonate today: It appears to be a lesson no one has heard. Here’s the full story about the video.

Thanks for Reading!
