Milwaukee taxpayers once again would have to pay most fired police officers while they appeal their dismissals under a provision Republicans tucked into the state budget in the wee hours Friday.
"All this bill does is allow the unscrupulous officers we fire for untruthfulness to game the system at taxpayer expense," Milwaukee Police Chief Edward Flynn said. "It is well known that officers in that position delay justice as long as possible, collecting money for no work."
Police officers in Milwaukee are most often fired for lying, according to records. The proposal, passed at 12:30 a.m. Friday, would require taxpayers to continue paying those fired officers.
