– Second Video Emerges Of Hot-Tempered Canton Police Officer (Pixiq, July 29, 2011):
A second dash cam video has emerged showing Canton police officer Daniel Harless overreacting to finding a gun in a man’s car.
The video is from July 29, 2010, exactly one year ago today.
Like the video that emerged earlier this month (second half of story), Harless can be heard threatening to kill the driver because of the gun that was found.
Unlike the last video, it is not clear whether the driver had a concealed weapons permit.
But the one thing that is clear is that Harless has a very hot temper and does nothing to deescalate a potential violent situation.
Here is just a small sample of what Harless told the man he pulled over.
“Do not move a muscle or I will put you in the grave.”
“I’ll shoot you in the face and I’ll go to sleep tonight.”
The first video to emerge has prompted gun advocate groups to call for Harless’ resignation.
Canton residents also created a Facebook page demanding his removal.
