The Fire and Police Commission, a civilian board in charge of overseeing the Milwaukee Police Department, recently issued a series of directives for Milwaukee Police Chief Alfonso Morales to accomplish that come due on August 6.

Morales was also joined by his lawyer Franklyn Gimbel who thinks the FCP is "on a mission to fire the chief of police."
