Ogden police hire officer fired for excessive force (Out of 102 applicants...) (ABC 4)
Monday April 30th, 2012
OGDEN, Utah (ABC 4 News) - The Ogden Police Department is facing some heat Wednesday night. They've hired a former UHP sergeant, just four months after he was fired for repeatedly punching a 59-year-old woman in the face.
What some people may find interesting is that Ogden Police believe Sgt. Andrew Davenport was one of the most eligible officers they could’ve hired. But others see it differently.
If you look at the video you can understand why some would consider Davenport’s actions as police brutality.
[...]Wednesday the Department of Public Safety confirmed for ABC 4, that they fired Davenport on Feb. 14th, 2011 for excessive use of force involved in the 2010 incident. We at ABC 4 discovered Ogden Police hired Davenport roughly four months later on June 27th, 2011 as one of their newest officers.
