SSCC #7 – Officer Harless Update

If you have to visit Canton Ohio, be advised that Officer Roid-Rage is heading back into the force.

Fired police officer Daniel Harless could get his job back if he gets medical clearance to return to work.

An arbitrator hearing Harless’ appeal ruled in the former patrolman’s favor. The 15-page ruling was dated Saturday and released by the city Wednesday.

So much for this post in the Accountabilibuddable tag.

And lets not forget that there have been other incidents within this same department.

Honestly, that town is becoming a serious 7 figure settlement waiting to happen.  Any department that willfully hires him is going to be looking at a lawsuit if he so much as sneezes on someone.

He had his opportunity at law enforcement and he blew it.  He can go work in fast food and flip burgers.

State Sponsored Criminal #7: Officer Daniel Harless

Because when an officer is caught blatantly abusing his power and the law he shouldn’t be held accountable because there’s always others who don’t get caught, how is it fair to them?

    Wasn’t the guy’s name Daniel Harless? Not Todd?

    Yeah, but “I” am not going to try to collect… Canton is OFF my travel itinerary…

  3. Barron says:

    You might not be the one to cash in, it may be your kids or significant other… That doesn’t bode well for your ability to spend it.

    This is just messed up…

    Luckily for me though there is no reason for any southern Ohio boy to go north of I70.

    In other news, just bought my first handgun :D!

    God I just wanted to post that somewhere today and none of the gun blogs I read have anything where I can inject that statement into the comment section… Even this post is 3 days old.
