The head of the Milwaukee Police officers’ union shared not only his own dismay at the Fire and Police Commission’s demotion of Police Chief Alfonso Morales to captain, but the anger which he says a large numbers of officers feel about the decision.
“A lot of them are mad. A lot of them are angry. Quite frankly, a lot of them are (expletive) off,” Milwaukee Police Association President Dale Bormann told WTMJ’s John Mercure on Wisconsin’s Afternoon News Friday. “They got rid of our leader.”
Bormann believes that Morales should have received more time to complete a series of directives the FPC had asked for by August 6.
“It is unfair. At least give Chief Morales the opportunity to complete the directives. Give him the opportunity to show to the citizens of Milwaukee that he is the police chief and he completed all the directives,” he said.
