How Far is to far? Ive been a resident here for 5 years and I used to feel proud of the police department, they made me feel safe.That is until recently when unamed police chief started using his power to basicly take our constitutional rights and throw them out the window.I have personaly witnessed him forcing his way into residents homes without warrents, excessive force when apprehending suspects,lying to children service agencies to get warrants issued,tearing through residents vehicles and personal belongings overa simple seatbelt violation,refusing to wright out police reports that involved theft,braking and entering,and criminal tresspass,but the most recent abuse of power ive personally witnessed is harassment of any body who drives in or out of the appartments located behind d&d auto. There are many residents without criminal records hard working tax paying residents getting pulled over and searched with no propable cause whats so ever.ENOUGH is ENOUGH stop using our town as your own personal playground. Like I said I used to feel safe in this town but if the new chief of police is going to only carry out the laws of his choosing.Then how safe are we really? How far are we going to let this go?

If you are truly concerned this is not the place to go. Go to a council meeting and ask them to address your concerns.
NO one who can do anything about your concerns are likely to see your post

as to the comment about going to a council meeting. Ask Mr. Mouse (former councilman in Canal Fulton), how that worked out for him.

I'm a laidback person, but I can't take the harrassment from the so called police department. the police are there protect the citzens not do illegal home searches without warrant. They have forced themselves into many homes without a warrant. When asked if they had a warrant the so called officers have stated it wasn't with them. We need to stop this police state from happening to canal fulton. This is the united states and my ancestors didn't fight for a police controlled state

Though one had nothning to hide, they can still charge you. For having bendrayl and yellow kitchen gloves. My God we should search the officers houses and see if they have kitchen gloves lol.One can't get over officers of the law not abiding by their own rules. They also have informants who have been charged as sentenced as meth manufacturer and heavy users for many years. One wonders how those type of people are reliable sources of information and why the police would ever listen to informants like that. Officers in Akron, Cleveland, Canton and many other cities would laugh at those type of people ever giving any info. Meth addicts will lie and come up with hilarious stories to get out of trouble

I was pulled over on leaver ave once for driving over the yellow line when I told the idiot cop there are no lines on this road , I live here. Then the idiots wanted to search for illegal stuff, all I had was McDonalds value meal. Come on canal fulton , hire some cops that know to act like cival servants, fire the idiots we are stuck with.
