Police officer fired after he’s filmed telling people he’s ‘trigger-happy’ – AOL News

A police officer was fired after being caught on camera threatening a crowd of people to back away because he was “trigger happy.”The decision to let Officer Stephen Barone go was the result of both internal investigations and a formal hearing process following the August incident as well as a July traffic incident, Hartford, Connecticut, Police Chief David Rosado said in a statement Wednesday. “I did not make this decision lightly,” Rosado said. “After reviewing the findings related to these two incidents, it’s clear to me that there’s no scenario in which Mr. Barone can return to his duties as a productive member of the Hartford Police Department.”
