Video: Austin Man Facing 10 Years In Prison For Phtographing Cops Making Arrest


It was just after midnight on New Year’s Day when Antonio Buehler spotted a pair of Austin cops manhandling a woman at a gas station during a DUI investigation, so he pulled out his cell phone and began taking photos.

That, of course, prompted one of the cops to storm up to him and accuse him of interfering with the investigation.

Austin police officer Pat Oborski shoved Buehler against his truck before handcuffing him. He later claimed in his arrest report that Buehler had spit in his face.

Buehler was charged with resisting arrest and felony harassment on a public servant, the latter punishable by up to 10 years in prison.

After spending 16 hours in jail, Buehler began seeking witnesses to the incident.

“We started posting flyers around the gas station,” Buehler said in an interview with Photography is Not a Crime Sunday afternoon.

Then they

had better get rid of those dash-cams and street cams, or put their operators in jail, right?

Just how much bullsh!t to they think the people are going to swallow?
Their BS is getting pretty damn deep.

How Much BS Will The Public Swallow?

A heck of a lot if incidents like these don't get publicized in the media.
