Rally Against Police Abuse in Solidarity with Anaheim, CA

On Friday, July 27th, Austin joined with cities across the nation to come together in peaceful protest against the violence of the Anaheim Police Department, and against the violence of police departments across the nation.

People across the nation are outraged after finding out that the Anaheim Police Department killed an unarmed man, Manuel Diaz, on Saturday, July 21st, then randomly began shooting into a crowd of women and children with non-lethal rounds, and unleashing a K-9 dog on a woman and a baby, and then killed another man the following day.

The Rise of the Peaceful Streets Project and Police Accountability Summit

 Peaceful Streets flier

By Antonio Bueheler

In the early hours of New Year’s Day, 2012, I pulled into the 7-11 on W 10th and Lamar to refuel the truck I was driving. I was the designated driver that night, and I was sober. While fueling up, my passenger and I observed a DUI stop in progress, with a woman standing in the cold without a jacket, in high heels performing a field sobriety test. As one cop, Patrick Oborski, was administering the test, we saw the other cop, Robert Snider, walk up to the passenger side of the car and engage the female passenger in a conversation. The woman was clearly no threat to anyone, and we saw no reason to become involved in the situation. As we were preparing to leave, we heard a chilling scream from the female passenger, and turned in time to see Snider violently yanking the female passenger out of the vehicle. Then we observed Oborski join in on the abuse. My friend and I both immediately reached for our phones to try to take photos of the abuse, and when the female passenger saw us, she cried out to us begging us to record the assault.
