Video: Austin Cop Threatens To Jail Man If He Puts Video of Him On Facebook
"Don't film me... If I find myself on Facebook, I'ma come for you!"
"Someone put me on Facebook, and I put them in jail!"
Antonio Buehler stands up to a street thug with a badge.
Here's the backstory:
APD Officer Jones #4846 threatens man filming him!
The man in the video interacting with Code Enforcement Officers and an Austin Police Department officer is being harassed for projecting non-commercial images onto the side of a building. The night prior Austin Police Department arrested him for projecting images, and then arrested someone who was filming the arrest for 'interference with public duties.'
An officer at one point takes the gentleman's ID away and disappears for a couple of minutes. When the gentleman gets his ID back, he asks why it was taken in the first place, and what was done with the ID. The officer then threatens the gentleman by saying "don't talk yourself into something you don't want to have happen."
There were several Peaceful Streets Project filmers on the scene filming. The Austin Police Department Corporal (Jones, Badge #4846) threatens Antonio Buehler on several occasions from both a professional and a personal standpoint. Specifically, he threatened to arrest, to come after, and to file charges against Buehler if this video was uploaded to facebook. We uploaded the video within two hours of the incident.
The people of Austin are paying thugs and tyrants.
