Woman with “clenched fists” is beat by officer for “appearing willing to fight”
August 7, 2013
Recently released footage of a male police officer was caught on a
department store’s security camera beating a woman after she was
apprehended for stealing clothing.
The video forwarded from the Iowa department store, Von Maur, shows
Police Officer Scott Crow beating 34-year old Brandie Redell and
knocking her to the ground in front of her infant daughter.
“I was crying and begging him to get off me,” said Redell.
“He lunged at me, he came at me. I fell from the chair a little bit
and went to the ground face first and he was rubbing my face in the
carpet telling me, ‘This is not going to happen like this, I’m in charge
here,’” reported KWQC.
The beaten woman was left with an eye injury that has permanently left her vision impaired.
The Better Government Association (BGA) reports that the police were called after Redell was caught on camera stealing over $300 worth of clothing.
