A video that has gone viral online shows Austin, Texas police beating up and arresting two men early Friday morning for allegedly jaywalking. They subsequently arrest a third man and a woman who had witnessed the incident.

Police tell bystanders they are taking the man to jail, while bystanders ask what he had done.
“Crossing against the light,” an officer says in an apparent reference to jaywalking.

A man and a woman, who appear to be friends of the two men being arrested and who were questioning the police’s actions, are also arrested in the video.

This is not the first time the city’s arrest policy for jaywalking has come under question. Last year, the city made international news after police beat up a jogger for jaywalking.
At a press conference concerning the incident, Austin Police Chief Art Acevedo quickly came to the defense of the arresting officers, saying they may have been rough with the female college student, but they hadn’t raped her.

Watch the video, what happens is plain as day. These guys get attacked, beaten, and arrested by several cops for simply crossing the street, and then two witnesses get arrested as well.
In reference to an older situation in which a jogger was also attacked by the police for jaywalking, the Police Chief actually said "they may have been rough with the female college student, but they hadn’t raped her". This is the man who runs the police department from which these thugs come from. Psychopaths from top to bottom.
We always hear about the "good cops", but where are they? All I see is a bunch of other officers going along with it. Every officer standing there played a role in allowing this to happen to these men. At this point I won't believe in "good cops" until I see a video of one stepping in and stopping the psychopathic rampage of one of his fellow officers.

I am at loss of words, these events are happening daily, my only question is do we see more violence from cops because of cameras everywhere, or are they more violent by the day.

Oh man Austin cops are sissies!!!
They fail to tactically take someone down so they resort to punching, they even punched the poor dudes arm hahah.

On a more serious note, the police in the USA need to be steroid tested!

Do these cops live in a cave? What are they thinking?

Surely they are aware of the plethora of videos coming out especially the last year, showcasing horrible cop behavior and resulting in cops losing their jobs, being harassed out of their homes and into hiding, having official complaints in their jacket if they keep their job, lawsuits against the city they work for...

We are watching you! Stop misbehaving! Go find some real criminals!

Lol, as USUAL, the melodrama is blatantly hilarious... He was jay-walking? "OMG, red team go, red team go!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

This is how comedic it's become... And a PRIME EXAMPLE. SLOW DAY AT THE STATION, BOYS?

Remember when cops simply gave you a warning and sent you on your way without incident? Yeah, long gone are those days...

The amount of violence and overall use of resources used for a few individuals crossing a street against the light is simply ludicrous. For inquiring minds who would like to know why more and more people are developing a deep distrust and/or hatred for law enforcement, this video is a good example.

The one officer clearly says in the video that they're being taken to jail for "crossing against the light", ie jaywalking. So this whole situation with them being attacked was simply, by the officer's own admission, because they crossed a street.

That shows, you are just as dangerous as those cops to the average citizen.

Just in case you were unaware, this case and the case that brought the statement referencing rape are two separate incidents. It just happens that both were incidents involving Austin police using inappropriate force for jaywalking.

I share your sentiments though...

Oh is that right? Because I'm not going to be randomly attacked and ill defend myself in such situations? No if I'm right I will fight for it I don't care who you are badge or otherwise, I do not react well getting jumped and beaten on by a gang of thugs nor should you, my immediate response, would be to get away as fast as possible and get them off of me. Sorry you lay down, I don't and never will.

Seems that every day is something else. Every single day.

At least no one got shot here. How pathetic is it to say that?

This system is broken, and needs to be scrapped. I shudder to think how many more outrageous videos we will see in the meantime.

Thanks brother but, that situation has not ever happened to me involving police. They don't bother me and I don't bother them, putting myself in those shoes, being randomly attacked by a group of people knowing I've done nothing wrong, yea it's time to get them off me and get away. That's how I would think immediately..

I've just finished posting in another thread about US law enforcement officers being the dictionary definition of "terrorists" but I should have also mentioned that they act like outlaw bikie gangs when protecting and serving up their "us against the civilians" industry entrenched violence.

Then they have the audacity to question and wonder why they are despised and disrespected by civilians across the country.

They have clearly taken "To protect and Serve" as meaning "protect each other at all costs by serving up beatings and using thug tactics on unarmed civilians".

Thank God for Youtube and Liveleak for allowing civilians to upload these recordings which clearly show Law Enforcement officers being the Thug assholes they have earned as a reputation.

Undeniable accountability
