Judging from the first picture in the TheBlaze article, these cops clearly hate exercise.
Michael Nystrom's fists can punch through FUD.
Public shaming body language is another tool to combat tyranny in my opinion. What is most important is the folks around you who may see someone standing against tyranny in a calm manner. Just a thought, I figured maybe it could catch on like a trend, like down thumbing a youtube video you do not like. I'm starting to do this with my hand out of the window when I pass by police radar detecting, believe it or not, I don't see the cop radar detecting on my road anymore, (knock on wood), anyways if you physically see tyranny, thumbs it down, peace.
Thank you to whoever recorded this!!
kind people rock
He defended what happened because the day prior, someone was jay-walking and got hit by a car (or maybe it was a bus - whatever). All the tyrannical policies are based on "we're just trying to protect you!" They use this as moral high-ground to enforce the tyranny that they really want.
that may or may not have anything to do with what the police are up to in Austin.
Students around campus at Texas are bizarre pedestrians. They don't look before stepping into streets. Their faces are glued to gadgets. They don't look where they're going. If you're walking on campus they will run right into you. They're habituated that cars will yield to them. At intersections between classes, cars will just wait ten minutes for the herd to pass. There is a sense of entitlement a mile wide.
It's not an environment of free thinking people aggressive about individual rights and liberty, as one would expect of a university where you can run into someone from anywhere in the world, although that element is not absent. There is a chapter of YAL, and RPs appearances through both cycles were very well attended.
People are mostly very locked in to government money and grants. The campus is deeply integrated with State government down the street. UT and the city are cooperative. This is both good and bad. When financial supporters at UT say jump, the University says, "How high?" They banned smoking because it was a condition of receiving grant money.
I don't know why police are becoming lawless nationwide. I can easily imagine a conversation between police and the university about pedestrian traffic.
The police chief probably has a lot of support when he misses the point, saying, "This is our problem? Jaywalking? Great!"
Here's a video that took place just around the corner from the jaywalking arrest.

Immoral funding of Military Industrial Complex by Federal Reserve and US taxation system must stop!!!! End illegal/unconstitutional wars! Preserve US currency!
Thanks for posting.
What a disgusting charge, felony harassment, and what an unprofessional and weak thing to do, to lie and fabricate charges, to "teach him a lesson" about who's in charge. They should definitely be fired.
They've arrested him five more times!
Peaceful Streets Project seems to be successfully changing the character of police encounters and the accepted rules of engagement. It's nice to see those bike cops on camera saying, "Yep, filming is perfectly legal."
There has to be power on both sides for civil behavior from police.

piece of shi!t. Would love to see him go back to Cali. Really, Really dislike Assholevedo.

When they finally do this to the wrong person "it" will begin. God willing the citizenry will begin defending one another. This cannot continue without some serious consequences.
But about myself I will not boast, except as it concerns my weaknesses (2 Cor 12:5). Let the unbelievers seek praise from each other; I wish that which is from God alone.
Just my impression: defending one another in an incident like this will not cause "it" to go Federal (if that is the correct word). There might be a correction in a locality. Even on the computer these things are hard to watch and realize you will do nothing to come to her aid, but this is a big country. Watching that video, what could the people have done to keep the situation from becoming even more violent? Maybe even just stop and stare, idk? Hey Austin! If you let this pass, Texas is "all hat and no cattle". (just joken.)
Until we as a nation becomes more conscious. The brutality shown to our citizens will maintain. There is no peaceful place within these police. They don't have an iota about tranquil ness . They have very small brains. People like these men never leave their town. They can not exist outside their little area. It is sad for them.
This is total crap. Police officers have no right to interject themselves in to your day to day life like this.
This is clear unwanted projection of state power upon us.
If you live there it is your DUTY to call the mayor and complain.
Jay walking should not even be a ticket if no accident is caused.
"You only live free if your willing to die free."
it's as simple as a power trip.
I am really disturbed by the rash of delinquent/criminal police behavior as of late.
Did a national memo go out to all police departments telling the rank and file to act as jackboots?
The law cannot make a wicked person virtuous…God’s grace alone can accomplish such a thing.

I bet pigs pick up girls like that all the time for stupid crap. Who knows what they do to them once they get them to their cage. Somehow I bet this girl has a cavity search in her future. I hope those pigs get flaming rectal cancer.
Something we agree on.

Chances are we agree on 90+% of stuff, especially in politics. I love all my libertarian buddies, even if I don't get their religious beliefs. Id never let such irrelevant stuff keep me from working alongside any liberty minded person to fight for freedom.
Hmm she didn't seem too free... and all the bystanders not talking to those officers don't seem to brave...
This is a dangerous area to j-walk in Austin because it is a really busy street at the edge of campus with lots of shops. A lot of students are crossing all day long. Not justifying this just making a statement. You should be allowed to use your own judgment to cross a street where and when you want.

But the lips of knowledge are a more precious thing.
The age of oppression were in. Everyone needs to record everything these days. Don't leave home without your cameras and voice recording equipment.
I left a voice recorder on in my backpack in my car when I had to use a parking garage with a valet, and when I checked it later, sure enough it sounded like they were going through my stuff after they parked. It sounded like they found the voice recorder, saw it recording, then got scared and decided not to take anything.
further solidifies the fact that we are NOT free and haven't been for quite some time. What happened to "No victim - No crime"?
In addition, imo, a lot of these stupid laws were just put in place to generate revenue--evil, evil, evil!
