Seems possible he might've had some stress in his life.
Idiot , indeed;
Also, a man who had a serious problem, one which seems to be claiming way too many people , from all walks of life , regardless of their economic status, profession, or level of society....
Sad, for everyone.
Should have stolen some Narcan from the medical bags too. Let this be a lesson to others...
We don't even bother with lifesaving awards anymore there's been so many saves from Narcan, why in the world you would trust seized heroin to be safe being aware of that ..

I don't want to speak ill of the dead, but on many levels that was 100% a stupid thing to do.
Even stupider is how someone with 2 months on the job had access to all that dope.
Apparently, this is like a one-man department. He was the chief and the patrolman.
EDIT: There are actually fifteen officers in a town of 535 people.
Looks like it's relatively small, but maybe not the chief-plus-one small.
FWIW, when it comes to trivia regarding LE agency size, the last time I heard nationwide stats mentioned, something like almost 65% of local LE agencies had 10 or fewer sworn/armed positions. Small town (and county) America has a tradition of having quite a number of smaller agencies.
EDIT: Wow, your edit came up between the time I read your post and then hit the Reply button, and I didn't see it appear in the Quote. What are the chances for that timing to happen?
Department went up his nose.
Maybe at one time the village council approved that number, but haven't heard anyone mark on in a long time. They certainly didn't have any full time officers.
was that even before the shooting?
That must be one wealthy village. They’re exceeding the normal staffing ratio about fifteen-fold.
Eric had been regularly marking on in the morning, but can't remember if he was working 40 hours/week. I can tell you that being the early car out west, if he wasn't in service that would have been my dispatched call.
The only revenue for it is a a truck stop, fireworks retailer, and mayors court fines.
Without doing any googling to the other Ohio guys, last Chief was shot and killed, correct?
Well there was a chief in between Disario and this chucklehead, but he blew through there like the wind.. Quit claiming something about a hostile work environment.
Sounds like their hiring process needs adjusted.
There’s another article about this guys background and history of poor decision making.
The common thread is the village council. In my 22 years of policing in the area, there seem to have been very few Chiefs to last 12+ months.
Some were knuckleheads, some were decent, Eric was the only one to get my cell number. The one between Disario and Hughs was decent. The village council disagreed in his community policing strategy. My understanding is that it was not their we need revenue strategy.
IMHO the department should be decertified. They cannot provide any of the basic functions of police work, and the reason it exists is not for public interest.
Not a slight at the many fine folks that worked for the department, but there are reasons for that kind of exceptional turnover.
I don't know anyone who personally works there, but after having read the stories and personally met folks who have worked there in the past, it doesn't sound like it's really any different than any other micro-town police department. 99.9% politics, 0.1% actual law enforcement.
