CANTON —

The city police officer fired for a pattern of verbal abuse and making threats is trying to get his job back.

Patrolman Daniel Harless is proceeding with the arbitration process, said Kristen Bates Aylward, an assistant city law director.

In January, Safety Director Thomas Ream fired Harless.

Bates Aylward said Thursday that she and the attorney representing Harless have tentatively settled on a neutral third-party arbitrator, who will be asked to hear the case.

Michael Piotrowski, an attorney with the Fraternal Order of Police of Ohio, is representing Harless. Piotrowski could not be reached for comment Thursday.

An arbitrator would rule if the firing was proper or decide if Harless should be reinstated. An arbitrator is selected through the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service, an independent agency of the United States government that provides mediation and arbitration services.

The internal affairs division of the Police Department investigated three traffic stops involving Harless, each one filmed by a cruiser dash camera, including two incidents in 2010. Investigators said the officer had violated rules for conduct, cooperation with the public and handling persons.

“Job” my pink, plump, rump!

The only legal proceedings that bastard should be involved in is trying to avoid jail time for what he’s done under color of authority....

"Michael Piotrowski, an attorney with the Fraternal Order of Police of Ohio, is representing Harless."

A little something to remember next time the pigs ask you to donate.

I’m guessing the verbal abuse was a little bit more aggressive than “Go ahead, punk. Make my day”;)

Used to be that the cops were respected. Because of clowns like this, they are looked down on. Its no wonder people are making a living filming them and showing the world their true colors, because unfortunately he’s not the only one.

He’d be an embarrassment to mall cops let alone the city police. He shouldn’t work in a public capacity at all.
