TV6 Investigates: Davenport Police Officers Accused of Using 'Too Much Force'

Updated: Aug 6, 2013 09:46 PM
By Lynnanne Nguyen

Caught on tape, Davenport Police officers and an accused shoplifter in a questionable incident that has some questioning -- did they use too much force?

Video captures a Davenport Police officer striking an accused shoplifter several times. That person was 34 year old Brandie Redell of Davenport.

On February 18th, Redell was taken in for questioning regarding a shoplifting incident at the Von Maur store at Northpark Mall.

Surveillance video shows Redell saying something to the officers, then one of them, Officer Scott Crow, moves to restrain her, punching her several times in the process.

Not only dead the beat her, they beat her on top of her child. Hard to express how upsetting this is.

Oh yeah but this isnt all cops. This is just one and just because he didn't go to jail doesn't mean anything. Naw its all fine.. I'd celebrate the day when a video like this ends up with a cop beaten killed or thrown in jail. And its no diffrrent than the people who want to see murders killed on this site. I think this action is that of the worse criminal activity one can see.

No, it's not all cops regardless of your twisted view of the world. It's news because it's not the norm. In twenty years, I never did anything like that. And most of the guys I worked with never had any use of force problems.
He was the sort of person who stood on mountaintops during thunderstorms in wet copper armour shouting "All the Gods are bastards."

I'm quite aware it isn't all cops. regardless of your twisted view of my view of the world.

However if it wasn't the norm then why do we see reports like this nearly every single day? I would say with an average around 10 a day 3600 a year your "its not the norm" isn't a very compelling argument.

Uh, that website only shows cops that were arrested/charged. What about all the other stuff that is dismissed as "appropriate force"?

That's a silly argument isn't it? Kind of like saying "you don't need a gun for self defense because neither me nor anyone i know has ever been attacked"

No, I think what he is saying is that he and huis guys conduct themselves with integrity & principle...and take pride in doing so. Just because some needle dick fucktards in some other forces can't we shouldn't paint them with the same brush.

I don't know anyone that paints them all with the same brush.

Sure enough though, it is not something that just happens now and then. It happens nearly every day and no one seems to give two shits.
