Days After Beating Jaywalker, Austin Cops Caught on Video Beating a Minor and Kicking Tiny Dog
Austin TX – A video uploaded to Facebook this evening is once again putting a spotlight on the arrest practices of the Austin police department.
As the video begins, an officer can be seen attempting to force a man out of his house. When the man asks the officer if he can exit of his own accord, the officer simply replies “no” and continues to needlessly struggle with the non violent man.
Within seconds, more officers arrive and proceed to struggle with the man and attempt to place him in different arm and head locks all while the man is insisting that he is not resisting and trying to comply with the officers’ demands.
As soon as the officers wrestle the man from his home, they immediately throw him to the ground and begin violently assaulting him. When a child comes out to see what is going on, one of the officers proceeds to forcefully shove him back.
Officers then unnecessarily tase the man while he appears to be on his knees and is continuing to stress that he is trying to obey their orders. After tasing him, officers then unleash another volley of fists to the man’s head.
While the officers continue to escalate the situation and the scene becomes more chaotic, a dog comes out and begins barking at the officers. Instead of attempting to de-escalate the growing tensions, the officer that initially made contact with the man decides to continue his melee by maliciously kicking the tiny canine.
When neighbors begin exiting their apartments to witness the officers’ actions, police further escalate the already hectic situation by attempting to bully and intimidate the uninvolved bystanders.
The Austin Police department is already facing public scrutiny from an incident that took place just last week. As the Free Thought Project previously reported; on Friday, November 6, several Austin Police officers were caught on video horrifically brutalizing two men for the crime of walking across the street.
While details are still emerging as to why this man was being detained, there is no doubt that these officers’ actions were completely unwarranted. Three police officers should be able to successfully apprehend a non-violent individual without creating a scene of chaos and brutally assaulting innocent bystanders and family pets.
The video was shared on the Fox 7 Austin Facebook page.
