    Yeah I am sure he is all better now… This time around he will be sure to shoot the person instead of threaten to shoot them..

  2. Stephen Says:

    Yes, this is exactly the type of upstanding, responsible officer who deserves to have his job back.

    Just kidding. I wouldn’t trust this guy as an unarmed security guard in a golf cart.

  3. Andy Says:

    Now don’t I look like the fool commenting on the wrong open tab.

    Harless is an ass who should never have a gun or a badge.

  4. Alan Says:

    I bet they reinstate him.

  5. Sebastian not the blogger Says:

    Seeing as he’s guilty of being a threatening asshole and not knowing the laws he’s charged with enforcing he probably shouldn’t be reinstated, but I wouldn’t be surprised to hear that they do give him the job back. Reason enough to avoid Canton, OH.

    My prediction: He’s gonna win. He’s gonna pull over another CCW holder and out right kill them. The family of the dead CCW holder will sue the city and state for an ungodly ammount of money. The city and state will backpedal without ever admitting it was wrong.

  7. SGB Says:

    He’d be perfect for the TSA.

  8. Sid Says:

    Reinstating him is every criminal defense attorney’s dream. The legal brief practically writes itself.

    My favorite bit from the article:

    The incident was reviewed by an outside prosecutor who concluded Harlessí actions werenít serious enough to warrant criminal charges.

    Seems to me if citizen Joe did this they’d be up for criminal threatening, but since a cop did it it must be Okey Dokey.

    We’ve got a cop in Chicago, Hispanic, who’s shot dead four men, the last one a young black man reaching for his cell phone. It got the attention of the State’s Attorney, and it won’t go away.

  11. Sebastian not the blogger Says:

    I would agree with Sid. Can you say negligent retention?

  12. Snowdog Says:

    Darn, and here I was hoping of another trip to the AF museum. If this guy goes back on the force, goodby to me visiting Ohio again.

    This is the classic example of how to do it:

  14. FatWhiteMan Says:

    Of course he would appeal. He has nothing to lose. He does have appropriate representation though: He hates armed citizens–the FOP hates armed citizens; peas in a pod. Maybe they can have meetings where they burn the Bill of Rights together.

    Anti-virus software says your page is pushing viruses. Maybe check your ads?

    Side Note: If he’s Fired, then he loses his Police Privileges to Carry Concealed, and he has to go through all the Hoops a Regular Citizen has to. And I don’t think it would be Approved.

  17. TennGoodBoy Says:

    Article says he is supported by the Fraternal Order of Police Of Ohio, and the Canton Police Patrolman’s Association. So I guess this is the kind of “protect and serve” that these organizations want in Ohio. OK, then. Now we know another place in the “land of the free” to avoid, and there’s more of them all the time.

    “…And I donít think it would be Approved.”

    Ohio is shall issue–there is no approval process other than to check that he has not been convicted of a felony or certain other crimes.
