Demand Texas Rangers Arrest Officer Brown #7047 from Austin Police Department

The Texas Ranger Division is the primary criminal investigative branch of the Texas Department of Public Safety that deals with:

  • Murder, robbery, sexual assault, burglary, theft, and fraud;
  • bank fraud;
  • theft by credit card and computer generated counterfeit checks;
  • misuse of criminal history information;
  • misconduct and corruption of public officials;
  • threats against the governor and other state and federal officials; and
  • missing persons, parental abductions, questionable deaths and unidentified bodies

It is the duty of the Texas Rangers to investigate APD for acting under color of law while unlawfully detaining Austin activist, Antonio Buehler. One officer, Officer Brown presumably, can even be heard threatening to continue to unlawfully pull over Buehler and other members of Peaceful Streets.

Buehler has been targeted several times after his first encounter with APD which is currently experiencing an inadequate internal investigation.

There's also this:

Public Corruption Unit

The 81st session of the Texas Legislature passed HB2086; this bill created the Public Corruption Unit within the Texas Department of Public Safety, under the responsibility of the Texas Ranger Division. The Texas Rangers are committed to fighting public corruption, as it relates to public officials, law enforcement officers, and others that hold a position of public trust. Fighting corruption is vital to preserving our democracy, protecting our borders, and securing our communities.

When's the last time the Texas Rangers arrested a corrupt cop or a corrupt politician? I think it may have been Walker Texas Ranger. What better way to restore faith in law enforcement than to make an example out of bully, corrupt cops? Start there...then work towards the State Legislature and then Congress.

Perhaps we can show the rest of the country how to deal with corrupt bureaucrats....perhaps it's wishful thinkin'.

Should you feel compelled to demand action by the Texas Rangers against the Austin Police Department in an effort to attempt to restore faith in law enforcement and local government, here is their contact information:

Texas Rangers Headquarters
P.O. Box 4087
Austin, TX 78773-0600

If you have a complaint to file against public officials in Texas, try contacting your local Texas Ranger unit. Not sure what other states do, but feel free to provide info in the comments!

Let's see if we can use the internet and our combined efforts to hold the APD accountable.

The Texas RINCHES won't do anything!

The only thing they know how to do is steal lives, land, and property from hispanics!

They treat us like the buffalo. Shoot and pile up the bodies to pose for a black and white picture.

This is what they replied

Mr. Barber, you will need to address your complaint with the Internal Affairs division of the Austin Police Department.

Thank you,
Texas Rangers

You just got PAULED!

What I wrote

This concerned citizen (Antonio Buehler) has been active trying to show youtubers how cops should behave during traffic stops, and that not all cops are the way some folks make them out to be. Well his attempt has been Cond eluted with insults and abuse of power by the Austin PD. One instance Antonio was following an Austin PD officer (this is all on youtube) and the officer then pulled over Antonio, illegally searched him, forced him out of the car, pulled his hands behind his back and claimed he was being detained so they could search him for warrants. After this Antonio got pissed and started cussing at the officers because they were not following the constitutional protections laid out that the officers swore an oath to uphold. The officers let Antonio go because he really was not doing anything wrong, but this should be followed up on, this is wrong and Texas is better than this.

You just got PAULED!

I see this as aimed towards answering, definitively and for sur

definitively and for sure, a very simple question: Are the cops above the law?

Or like as Nixon said: "When the president does it, that means it is not illegal."

Is the same true for cops? Whatever they do, it is not illegal?

Excellent, excellent

Excellent, excellent work.

Rob, do you know this guy personally? He is brave to stand up against the machine like that, so fearlessly.

That is the next phase that most of us have to handle: fearlessness.

I don't know Antonio personally...

...but some of my friends do. I've been aware and following the Peaceful Streets Project for a while now, and yes, definitely he's brave and quite inspiring! It's actually very empowering to stand up to authority when you know what you're doing!

I'm sure it helps that he was a 2nd Lieutenant in the United States Army, graduated from Engineer Officer Basic Course, Ranger School,and Airborne School, and was a finance graduate from Stanford.

to make some noise

Lived in El Paso...

actually Ft. Bliss...Hated it. Under Mayor Rodgers you could openly see the corruption, abuse of the constitution at every level...I begged (and finally got) a transfer to another post across the country....Texas is just as corrupt as the rest of the states...even more so. Don't expect the Chuck Norris bunch of crooks to be any better than any other bunch of crooks....Mytwo cents.
