Milwaukee Police Chief Edward Flynn, as reported in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinal, "We're not going to fulfill the martyrdom fantasies of people who insist on being arrested while they disrupt the lives of this neighborhood."
Asked about the economic issues in the protest, Flynn told reporters, "If they're angry about the economy, go to Wall Street. There's 35% unemployment in this neighborhood. Who are they disrupting?"
Referring to below-freezing evening temperatures, Flynn said, "They can sit and freeze their butts off, I don't care."
Flynn then pulled police officers from the site and ignored the protest.
I think I like this guy.
