WNPA sends letter to Milwaukee Police Chief

On behalf of the organization, WNPA Secretary Michael P. King has sent a letter to Milwaukee Police Chief Edward A. Flynn regarding the mistreatment of WITI Fox 6 photojournalist Clint Fillinger by Milwaukee Police sergeants. The letter was also sent to Anne Schwartz (Flynn’s public relations manager), the Milwaukee Police and Fire Commission, Mayor Tom Barrett, WITI news director Jim Lemon, and all WNPA board members.

In the letter, WNPA objects to the sergeants’ unlawful orders and extends an offer to work with the department to ensure that incidents like this do not happen in the future. Read the full letter here: WNPA_letter_MilwaukeePolice_web
