Carl Bussjaeger has been keeping an eye on the developing case of Daniel Harless, the other Hero of Canton. For those who don’t follow Stupid Cop Tricks, Harless is a Canton, Ohio police officer who has a private little policy when it comes to “civilians” having the temerity to legally carry guns on his beat. He screams obscene abuses and threatens them with death. At least three times, it turns out, on video.
That’s a bit much even for the sweep-it-under-the-rug cops, and it’s barely possible Harless will receive something besides his current paid vacation. But not for a while, it turns out.
A disciplinary hearing for a police officer who threatened to execute a driver has been postponed until Dec. 1 at the request of the union, which says the patrolman has been diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder.
The Police Department’s internal affairs division recently completed an investigation into Patrolman Daniel Harless’ behavior in three police cruiser videos and found he violated three department rules in each of those traffic stops.
This shite makes me crazy. PTS F’ing D? How did this loser get so traumatized? Looking in a mirror and recognizing what he sees? Laying awake nights worrying about getting what he deserves?
