Seems this isn’t the first time this cop lost his cool. Follow the link, as the video is not embeddable. This suspect had an illegal gun, but this guy still really needs to find another line of work. Police work is not something he’s cut out for.
“Don’t (expletive) move. Let me see your (expletive) hands,” Harless shouted. “I’ll kill every one of you (expletive). There’s a (expletive) gun in this car. You (expletive) move, I’ll shoot you in the head.”
Harless also threatened to send the suspects “to the grave” if they moved, adding, “I will shoot you in the face and I’ll go to sleep tonight.”
If this officer ever does have to shoot someone, even if it’s legitimately self-defense, the statements appearing in these videos are going to greatly complicate his life unless it’s a cut-and-dry clean shoot, which is not often the case.
I also suggest this guy isn’t too good about controlling the situation. In what universe does a guy have a gun in a car illegally, and you don’t pull him out of the car and cuff him as soon as you realize it? Wouldn’t you at least want to remove the gun? Does he maybe want the suspect to pick up the gun, so he has an excuse? You really have to wonder.
