February 18, 2005 — A Channahon police officer was suspended Friday for excessive force after an incident was caught on video tape.
Channahon internal investigators say the soundless videotape speaks for itself. After patrolman Edward Bischoff handcuffed Debra Losacco, he grabbed her around the neck and slammed her into the bed of her pick-up truck.
"Grabbing the woman in handcuffs by the throat and pushing her into that truck was the wrong way to deal with it and certainly was excessive conduct," said Joe Cook, Channahon mayor.
