Milwaukee Gang Members Threaten Police In Recruiting Videos

posted on September 1, 2015

A video that appeared as evidence in the trial of an alleged gang leader shows young men on a street corner in Milwaukee, Wis., displaying guns. Just a few blocks away from a police station, one subject brandishes what resembles a MAC-10 and says, “It’s MAC-aroni time. Police gonna get shot at, too.” 

According to Police Chief Edward Flynn, this is a gang recruiting video—and just one of many. “They jump out of their cars and spend five minutes flashing their guns, gold teeth, money and drugs and off they go,” Flynn explained. “They are trying to send this message, they can operate with impunity.” Police are investigating this video, but it is chilling that criminals not only feel safe threatening police on their doorstep, but expect to gain supporters by such a gesture.
