Ohio news: Canton unemployment numbers increase by 1...

Police officer Daniel Harless who threatened to execute CCW holder fired by the city of Canton, Ohio.

You may remember this incident from June of  last year from here in the Buckeye state.  It made national press and has been used to show the bias some police have against CCW holders...justified or not this was clearly a case of an over-the-line officer going way beyond any reasonable amount of self restraint.  Given, the "suspect" in that case did not do enough in my book to let the officer know a head of time, but both officers made what seem to be gross mistakes in the handling of the situation.

It is notable that former-officer Harless claims he suffers from PTSD since 2003 when he was attacked while on duty, but if this is his defense why was he allowed to be on an active status for so long without any treatment?  Also the question is raised in the article about not only a trial he recently testified at while supposedly "mentally disabled" according to his union at the time but incidents of police brutality his is accused of prior to the 2003 incident that he claims triggered the PTSD that lead to his behavior.

Doesn't look like news reports for Harless are going to end anytime soon.
