WAYNE VINCENT OF THE AUSTIN POLICE ASSOCIATION ISSUES A VEILED THREAT AGAINST ANTONIO BUEHLER & PEACEFUL STREETS PROJECT
June 27th, 2013
During a recent interview with the local Fox affiliate, KTBC, Austin Police Association President Wayne Vincent issued what appeared to be a threat of violence against Antonio Buehler and the Peaceful Streets Project. This threat comes on the heels of the Peaceful Streets Project's public announcement that they would increase downtown patrols to record Officer Nathan Wagner while on duty. Wagner is the APD cop that shot and killed Byron Carter in 2011.
"We fully are afraid that this thing is going to turn violent before it's over because Buehler keeps escalating the harassment. Our officers are out there with absolutely no relief from this kind of harassment and it's not going to end well," Vincent said.
