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?’
