SSCC–Officer Road Rage, Round 2

He’s back in another video and just like the last one he’s making death threats.

It came out today that there is a “hearing” about the actions of Officer Harless in the previous video.  It disturbs me that there is only a hearing for disciplinary action and absolutely no charges whatsoever for his behavior.  A city councilman even attempted to justify it.

A man with a long history of issues and every time they look they other way.  Seriously I think the only way this man is going to get the punishment he deserves if he finally kills someone.  Even then I’m sure Alan Schulman will defend the shooting of the cooperative citizen.

The guy has absolutely no business being a police officer and seriously needs to stop the steroids.  The mental issues have obviously been getting worse.  Though I think in his case the loss of his testicles is going to be permanent.

Of course the Police Department is claiming that this incident has caused undue stress.

“The Canton Police Department’s operation and efficiency has been impaired due to negative phone calls and emails that have been fielded by its members (regarding the case),” the report says.

If you don’t like the heat, stay the hell out of the kitchen.  You have created this situation by ignoring a pattern and history of behavior.  If you dislike the reaction of the public to the behavior of one of your officers, maybe you should revaluate why you find his behavior acceptable.

Because the job of the Canton Police Department is to make sure its officers are free to intimidate, threaten, and harass anyone they please.

Update: Here’s another video thanks to Jake below. Once is happenstance, twice is coinicendence, three or more is enemy action. Canton needs to get a clue.

    This is actually the third video of this guy doing the same thing. The second one is here.

    Also, how blatant can that department be? They’re basically saying that what he did wrong was getting caught, and only because it pissed people off. Not one word about threatening someone in custody with harassment or death.

    It looks like the whole department is rotten – a conclusion supported by the fact that at least two separate partners (I’m not sure if his partner in the newest video is a different cop or not, since I haven’t had a chance to watch it yet) did nothing to calm him down or separate him from his prisoners when he flew off the handle.

    • Holy crap, I just updated the post to add it.  This one was an even better example.  I’m busy this weekend but I might do another whole post on that third video.

      That’s seriously screwed up.
