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.

      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!”
