And then this cop. Rossford Police officer accused of using police database to contact women resigns

Snip--

TOLEDO A Rossford Police Officer resigns after two women report that he misused a police database to look up their personal information and message them on Facebook. The City Of Rossford Administrator Allyson Murray released a statement saying that Officer Glenn Goss, Jr. resigned prior to being terminated on Tuesday. The move follows an immediate internal investigation into the allegations brought to light by a Rossford woman.


Emily Hackler says she was driving home from the health club when she noticed a man in a black truck following her. Hackler says when she got home she received a Facebook message from the man who turned out to be Officer Glenn Goss Jr. of the Rossford Police department. In the message, he makes inappropriate comments about her appearance and sends a picture of himself in his police uniform. Hackler says when she asked how he got her contact info, he tells her he looked up her license plate information. “I do not think a person like that should have a job like that. Working with people and with people's information,” says Emily.

Taylor Harder says she was on her way to work about a year ago, when she was pulled over by Rossford Police Officer Glenn Goss Jr., “He stopped me after I came down the hill in Rossford and he pulled me over by the railroad tracks. He asked me for my license and registration and everything told me that I was speeding.”


Snip--"City of Rossford Administrator Allyson Murray says the city launched an immediate internal investigation and found grounds for termination. However, Goss Jr. resigned before that happened. Now an independent investigation that could involve criminal charges will be done by the Ohio State Highway Patrol."

3. This is the town where I reside.

His dad is former chief of police. The two of them post in our community page often. When a BLM protest came here, both posted a lot of dogwhistle racism about it, toeing the blue line about how police are infallible. I'm glad that Officer Goss is gone, but he will be protected. The Mayor, the City Council, and the city trustees are an ol' boys network. It's a clique that protects and enriches their own. I have a ton more to say about it, but it isn't for this post on this day.
