Austin Police Dept Corruption Exposed

8 Jul

If you don’t know the Antonio Buehler story, I have posted some information below this new video of Antonio Buehler addressing Austin officials. Make sure to see his credentials at the bottom. He’s a CEO, a teacher, a war veteran, a Stanford and West Point graduate with accolades and he works with disadvantaged children. The Austin Police Department’s lies are helping no one. Their denial of any wrongdoing and refusal to release the dash cam video will only continue to encourage an antagonistic relationship between the community and the police. The more animosity and resentment the public feels towards the cops, the more danger police put themselves in.

The original news report.

You may not be a fan of Alex Jones, but the following is the most comprehensive interview.

After midnight on New Years of this year, war veteran Antonio Buehler witnessed Austin police officers being unnecessarily rough with a female at a gas station.

The police had pulled over a car containing two females and began to question the driver. The passenger yelled to her friend that she did not have to take a sobriety test. The police claimed the passenger’s right to free speech was an interference. One of the two cops, Oborski, ripped the female out of the car, eliciting a scream from the victim. She was then cuffed and held by both cops in a “pain compliance” move that reminds me of strappado, a medieval Inquisition torture technique that was used in torture chambers.

Note: A form of strappado  was used by abusive U.S. military personnel at Abu Ghraib, but was referred to as a “Palestinian Hanging.” It resulted in the death of Manadel al-Jamadi in 2003. This technique not only has potential to dislocate shoulders, causing long-term tendon, ligament, and nerve damage, but in some forms of the technique, the victim also risks having their shoulders broken.

Wikipedia describes strappado as:

A form of torture in which the victim’s hands are first tied behind his or her back and suspended in the air by means of a rope attached to wrists, which most likely dislocates both arms. Weights may be added to the body to intensify the effect and increase the pain.

When Antonio saw this happening, he pulled out his mobile phone and began taking photos.

“We pull out our cameras and try to take pictures with our cell phones,” he said. “She sees me taking pictures and says, ‘please, take pictures and videos.’

“I asked the cop, ‘why are you hurting her, she didn’t do anything wrong, stop hurting her.’

“They pick her up and walk her right past us. Oborski then turns around walks back towards me.”

“’He said, ‘who do you think you are?’

Antonio Buehler’s first amendment right to photograph anyone in public prompted Oborski to approach him. The cop then proceeded to pin Buehler against the back of his truck. The video turned over by a good Samaritan who had surreptitiously recorded the incident from across the street shows the aggressive cop approaching Buehler, who has his hands up, showing no signs of aggression, asking “Why are you touching me?” before being wrestled to the ground by Oborski for no reason. Of course, the story the cops told varies and is not substantiated by the video.

Note: I’ve seen an unsettling trend indicating that sometimes being arrested (or doing your job or being on a bicycle)includes being tackled or thrown to the ground for no reason.

Oborski claims in the police report that Antonio Buehler assaulted him by spitting in his face and then resisted arrest.  Oborski’s report states that he wiped his face after Antonio spit on him, but an enhanced version of the cell phone video posted in April does not show Oborski’s claimed face wipe. Instead, it shows the cop lunging towards Buehler, who has his hands raised passively in the air.  The cop claims Antonio escalated the situation by raising his voice while Antonio claims  Oborski was the one who initially began to speak louder. I’m curious to know what law says someone cannot speak louder than a corrupt cop caught abusing a small, innocent woman. We have every right, and in my opinion, an obligation if capable, to stop police abuse. Police spokesperson Anthony Hipolito is on record saying the cop car dash cam shows no evidence of Antonio Buehler spitting on Oborski. I find it odd that after Buehler was unnecessarily wrestled to the ground, his friend stood there recording the events, or pretending to record, according to some reports. The other cop  seemed to have no problem with it. Watch Hipolito admit the dash cam video does not show Antonio Buehler spitting on Oborski. The enhanced version of the video at full speed starts at 4:39.


The Austin Police Department refuses to release the dash cam because they claim it would “interfere with the investigation.”

Feel free to call the Austin Police Department and let them know how you feel about the situation. I encourage people to let them know we are not buying the nonsense they are trying to sell us.

It is my desire to make this world a better place for children; where they can hope, dream and grow to achieve their full potential. It is my belief that our best hope for a world with economic and social freedom comes through education and opportunity.

I have been involved in efforts to improve the lives of disadvantaged youth in the US, Germany, Bulgaria and Kosovo. For the past nine years, through Childreach/Plan USA, I have sponsored three children in Egypt, Malawi & Zimbabwe. For four years I was the co-Treasurer and a board member of A Caring Hand, a New York based non-profit for child bereavement. For two years I was responsible for Congressional Districts NY-8 and NY-9 as the Field Force representative for West Point. I also coordinated and ran college fairs for both West Point and Stanford in the NYC metro area. I have considerable experience coaching and mentoring middle school, high school and college students, as well as young professionals. I am interested in talking to people leading business or social ventures that will improve the lives of, and create opportunities for children.

Antonio Buehler’s Experience

Founder & CEO

Buehler Education

Privately Held; Myself Only; Education Management industry

January 2011Present (1 year 7 months)

We believe that each child is a gift to the world with unlimited potential. In order to unlock that potential, parents and teachers need to abandon the one-size-fits-all approach to education that destroys intellectual vitality and motivation. We structure individualized academic programs for children based on their unique learning styles, and by doing so, we enable parents to enable their children.

Our work focuses on the following objectives:
1) Foster in children a desire for lifelong learning
2) Provide children with an education that is unobtainable through the public school system
3) Position children for admission into highly selective colleges and universities

We primarily work with homeschool families. We also work with parents looking to supplement their children’s public/private school offerings, or teachers and administrators who recognize that a one-size-fits-all teaching style is not effective.

More information on strappado -

There are three variants of this torture. In the first one, the victim has his or her arms tied behind their back; a large rope is then tied to the wrists and passed over a pulley, beam or a hook on the roof. The torturer pulls on this rope until the victim is hanging from the arms. Since the hands are tied behind the victim’s back, this will cause a very intense pain and possible dislocation of the arms. The full weight of the subject’s body is then supported by the extended and internally rotated shoulder sockets. While the technique shows no external injuries, it can cause long-term nerve, ligament, or tendon damage. The technique typically causes brachial plexus injury, leading to paralysisor loss of sensation in the arms.

The second variation is similar to the first, but a series of drops is added, meaning that the victim is allowed to drop until his or her fall is suddenly checked by the rope. In addition to the damage caused by the suspension, the painful jerk would cause major stress to the extended and vulnerable arms, leading to broken shoulders. It is believed that Niccolò Machiavelli, during his 1513 imprisonment after allegedly conspiring against the Medici family in Florence, was subjected to this form of strappado.

In the third variant, the victim’s hands are tied to the front. The victim is also hung from the hands, but the ankles are tied and a heavy weight is attached to them. This will cause pain and possible damage not only to the arms, but also to the legs and hips. This variant was known as “squassation”.
