Craigslist Proved My Innocence Against A Felony Charge

In 2011, Westpoint Graduate and Iraq Veteran Antonio Buehler was arrested for taking pictures of two cops abusing a woman they had pulled over in Austin, TX. He was accused of spitting in one of the cop’s face and charged with a felony. Luckily for him, there was someone filming the whole incident from across the street and showed that it was actually the cops who were the aggressors. Since that incident, Antonio has launched the Peaceful Streets Program which aims to bring accountability to police and their actions and to encourage people to flex their rights by filming the police.

Luke began his activism at the age of 17 when he was wrongfully accosted and assaulted by the NYPD. In 2006, at the age of 20, Luke founded the independent and grassroots media organization, WeAreChange. Through this organization and the use of social media, he has aimed to inspire those who no longer feel they can trust the mainstream media to become the media themselves. As support for WeAreChange grew, many followers became active themselves and WeAreChange has grown into a global organization with 160 independent chapters around the world.

Through Luke’s activism and journalism he has been able effect legislation and also influence dialog on a national level on important issues such as extrajudicial assassinations. Along with being featured in multiple documentaries, his work has been highlighted in numerous major news publications including CNN, MSNBC, BBC, The London Guardian, FOX, Huffington Post, Rolling Stone, RT, Al Jazeera, among many more.

Luke’s work with WeAreChange has covered a broad spectrum from police brutality, human rights and protests to in depth interviews with many prominent political and influential figures. He is well known for his guerrilla style journalism and confronting prominent governing figures with questions that the public would not hear about through mainstream media. A small representation of his confrontations include Henry Kissinger, Ben Bernanke, Joe Biden, Mitt Romney, Lord Jacob Rothschild, Mayor Bloomberg, Larry Silverstein, and the Rockefeller Family

Luke has traveled around the world covering events, conducting interviews and live streaming protests. On Luke’s work the Village Voice stated, “Luke Rudkowski, whose live stream is one of the most reliable and engaging records of Occupy Wall Street actions.” As some politicians have deemed Luke’s journalism a threat, he has been banned from entering Canada and has been falsely arrested numerous times for questioning people such as Mayor Bloomberg. His reporting has often caused him to face the blunt of police brutality and Luke has been interrogated and harassed by police on many occasions. Police have gone as far as attempting to set up a fake bomb threat in order to refrain him from carrying out his activism.

Celebrity supporters of Luke and WeAreChange include: Rosario Dawson, Roseanne Barr, Rosie O’Donnell, Prodigy, KRS-1, Immortal Technique and Dylan Ratigan.

      The best part is when he’s yelling at the cops calling them fucking cowards and punks. I know he’s baiting them, but if he is a ex-ranger he should be able to handle it. Hopefully he keeps friends with cameras with him all the time because pigs hate being publicly humiliated.

          When I was in the army people used to yell “ranger” for no particular reason. Kind of like yelling “Fuck yeah!” or “woot”

          It generally meant “Bad ass!”
