The charge stems from an Instagram post he shared earlier this year in support of his wife, Const. Erin Howard, who is also a Durham police officer. Around Jan. 24, Howard posted a video of herself to social media. In the video, she appears in uniform while delivering a message of support for the “Freedom Convoy” which occupied downtown Ottawa.

She should be fired for supporting an illegal far-right extremist group in full uniform

In Harnum’s Instagram post, he urged people to reach out to Durham Police Chief Todd Rollauer to “let them know you stand with Erin.” The post included the chief’s email address, where some 500 people directed messages about Howard.

He should be fired for supporting that shit

Nah, make a guy with that mindset keep on working, walking around with a gun and badge. Makes perfect sense ^/s

The post also featured a picture of his wife and read “Freedom of Speech is Essential! Please show your support for Constable Erin Howard.”

My rights as a police officer have been trampled on!!!!!
