One thing about the debate over gun control is that Milwaukee’s two big law enforcement officers are becoming national spokesmen.
Police chief Edward Flynn is slated to appear on "Anderson Cooper 360" tonight on CNN at 8 p.m. This follows his biting discussion and firm slap down of Republican Sen. Lindsay Graham yesterday during congressional hearings.
Flynn thus joins Sheriff David A. Clarke who has enjoyed some national fame as a result of his ongoing battle to urge citizens to arm themselves because his office might not arrive in time to prevent a break-in.
Two cops dueling on national TV. And they both belong to us.
Begel your a terrible writer, zero research.. ever.. Total joke on live T.V too great interview on inside mma lmao!
Dave, you really need to research before writing your articles. If you did you'd discover that 911 response times are getting longer, not shorter, in the city of Milwaukee and around the country in urban areas. Clarke was simply pointing out a FACT that you cannot expect 911 to be there instantly when in a dangerous situation (and that's assuming you can even make the call in the first place).

"Frankenstein" has all of the intensity and drama you'd expect from the creation of a monster, but the pace is relentless and that can wear you out. It would have been helpful to have a little bit of room to breathe and sit back in your seat.
