Daniel Brandon: Toledo Police Re-hired After Sex Assault Attempt
Women's group was outraged when Toledo police Sergeant Daniel Brandon was re-hired after a sexual assault attempt last year. He threatened to arrest the clerk if she did not have sex with him; the act was caught on surveillance video.
In the video, he said, "What if I take you punk a** off to jail. In the county, you'd be thinking, "shoot, it's only five minutes."
The clerk replied, "Horrible, horrible, horrible."
"And that's counting foreplay," Brandon responded on the video.
Brandon was fired for the incident, but an arbitrator ordered him to be re-hired. Only few weeks back on duty, he was under investigation again when Brittany Abraham filed a complaint.
Brittany Abraham and her family were held at gunpoint by 2 masked men in a home robbery. After they left, the family called the police, and Daniel Brandon showed up. The family was appalled by how the officer reacted.
"He called us liars. Told us we were lying about the people who came in, lying about the guns in our face. Then he started calling, saying that my wife was a prostitute," Dominic explains.
"He said there was a bunch of ho activity in my house -- hos coming in and out -- and it's our fault our house got broken into because we have hos coming in and out of our house," Brittany says, saying he was looking right at her the whole time he spoke.
"Why would I lie like that?" she continues. "And he said it was my fault! I have a job, I have a family. I am not a ho! Those were the first words out of his mouth, as soon as he stepped into my house."
Sharon Barnes of the National Organization for Women speaks up saying it's time to do something: "Women are less safe if you can't trust police who are there to protect you."
