A Canton Police Officer has been relieved of his duties after a traffic stop where dash cam video shows him berating and threatening a driver.
Ohioans for Concealed Carry released the video of the June 8th incident, where the driver tries to notify the officer several times that he has a gun and is a concealed carry permit holder. The officer becomes irate when he realizes the driver has a gun and starts threatening the man identified as 'William'.
"As soon as I saw your gun I should have taken two steps back, pulled my Glock 40, and just put 10 bullets in your ass and let you drop," the officer is heard saying off-camera in video. "And he would have been a nice witness as I executed you because you're stupid."
Canton Police Chief Dean McKimm says in a statement that the officer has been relieved of all duties and the incident has been referred to the internal affairs bureau for an investigation.
"The behavior, as demonstrated in this video, is wholly unacceptable and in complete contradiction to the professional standards we demand of our officers," says McKimm. "Anyone shown to be in violation of our rules and regulations will be help appropriately responsible as dictated by all the facts."
