Fired Milwaukee officer starts process to appeal in court

MILWAUKEE - A Milwaukee police officer who was fired for improper procedure in the lead-up to a fatal shooting has started the process to appeal his firing in circuit court.

Christopher Manney has filed a notice with the Fire and Police Commission, which certifies the case records and sends them to the court and that starts the action. The commission has five days to do that.

Chief Edward Flynn fired Manney for inappropriately frisking the mentally ill Dontre Hamilton in a downtown park in April 2014. Manney was checking on Hamilton's welfare, but it turned into a confrontation in which Hamilton allegedly grabbed Manney's baton and hit him.
