    Posting this FYI.. If you have a comment, keep it on-topic please.


    NW activists follow new developments in Canton, OH ‘cop stop’ case

    Northwest gun rights activists infuriated over a dash-cam video showing a Canton, Ohio cop threatening and berating an armed citizen are monitoring new events in that distant city, including Monday’s motion by the attorney for citizen William Bartlett to have charges against his client dropped....
    ...
    *So heated was the debate on Northwest Firearms that the discussion was locked down (we get a bit rowdy out here in the Pacific Northwest!).
    :laugh: :paranoid: :rolleyes:

    Anything less than that pig's immediate dismissal isn't enough.

    The officer was dismissed on July 22, 2011.

    Good. I also hope he can never work in LE again.

    My guess is after all the negative publicity, he'd be lucky to get a graveyard shift for an unarmed security company. IMO, he's too much of a liability, imagine if he had actually followed through with his threats?

    I just read about 7 pages of comments on the LEO forum regarding this incident. The bad news is that about 10% of the cops on that board SUPPORT Harless' actions! I hate to think that there are that many cops who would treat my family member or friend like that. Harless has done some damage, but the responding cops who support him keep adding to it.

    I hope not. I wouldn't even want to see him as a mall cop.

    I don't even know if he should be a scum-mopper at a peep show...

    Dismissal only? So there was no crime committed here? Didn't the cop convey some kind of threat?
    They need 'dismissal' also.

    Looks like NSP40R is as loopy Harless. I can't see how any LEO can support this guys actions. :nuts:

    Where did you get that info? All I can find is that he's been on admin leave since 7/20/11

    I read NSP40R's post as 'channelling' the officer's thoughts, i.e. the officer's thinking is that "the only reason a citizen would carry a weapon is to shoot me."

    Yeah but there is a lot of those cops calling the supporters stupid too.

    With a dismissal it is virtually impossible to obtain work in law enforcement again. That is one reason Birk resigned. He knew he was going to get fired but his quitting leaves him open to work as LEO elsewhere but most likely not in this state.
