She Allegedly Went on a Simple Jog in Her Toe Shoes. So Why Did She End Up...in Handcuffs?
The Blaze ^ | February 21, 2014 | Dave Urbanski

Posted on 02/21/2014 2:57:46 PM PST by Timber Rattler

It allegedly started with her jogging in her toe shoes and sporting headphones. It ended in video of her screaming and being led away in handcuffs. What happened in between is a matter of debate, but video showing parts of the incident is certainly gaining traction online.

Whatever the woman did to get the attention of Austin, Texas police, a witness’ video of cops detaining her on a city sidewalk Thursday morning then escorting her to a nearby squad car indicate she was not happy with their actions.

(snip)

Student Chris Quintero, who the Daily Texan reported witnessed the arrest, said he saw the woman jogging with headphones on when police ran after her. When the woman failed to stop, the officer grabbed her by the arm and handcuffed her, Quintero said.

(snip)

According to a statement to The Daily Texan from police spokeswoman Lisa Cortinas: “[In this case], the call is titled failure to identify.”

Great use of city resources there, fatsos. Tell me now that we're not living in a police state.

They went after the wrong Austin girl in tennis shoes. They should have been looking for the older blond one wearing pink tennis shoes. I could have supported that beat down...

The charge was failure to identify.

I thought that requiring ID’s was RACIST?

Brown vs. State of Texas. Brown 1, Texas 0. Supremes decided it. Id is not required for joggers.

Because the Po-Lice had the power to stop her, jack her up, handcuff her and haul her away.

I can’t believe that what used to be the beautiful city of Austin has been turned into such a cess pool of libtards.

Usually happens in every city that has a large university, though—and Austin certainly has that.

And yes—larda$$ should not even be a cop—IMHO, of course.

Judging by their girths, those cops must’ve been out of breath when they caught up with her and were plenty pissed.

It’s worse in CA. The cops out here mark your tires now if you don’t move your car for more than 3 days. Then they start ticketing. I had the flu and this happened to me. Thank God the police took care of all the bloods and the crypts so they have time to harass tax payers for prince jerry.

Look at those two, fat donut crunchers masquerading as police officers. The respect I had for police officers at one time in my life has now largely evaporated—evaporated by the heat of their small mindedness and micro evil acts. They should be ashamed but I guess they are incapable of that.

Well, at least these two valiant fatties likely made it home safely—which is all that matters.

Sitting at Starbucks, on the corner of 24th and San Antonio, I noticed a particularly odd situation.Two Austin Police Officers standing outside the Castilian just lingering. Every time I looked back there was a different student holding a carbon copy of what looked to be a jay walking citation.

They were setting a trap to write jaywalking tickets???

I guess it beats going after criminals - they can be dangerous.

I'm not sure either of these two cops have let any chocolate pastry slip through their hands without eating it in their lives.

I guess the APD has eliminated the gang violence issues over in East Austin, such that they can write jaywalking tickets in the West Campus area.

Those fat, out of shape bullies terrorized this girl. I hope she cleans their clock in court. What an outrage.

At least we can all sleep better at night now, knowing this girl is off the streets. Yup.

I’m actually surprised they could even catch her.
As fat as the doughnut monsters are I would figure
they would have had to shoot her in the back to bag
her as it’s obvious she could outrun either of these
two douchebags without even breaking a sweat.

Police state America is here, it’s entrenched and
it isn’t going to go away on it’s own.

Who carries ID when jogging?

I think joggers should be required to wear little license plate ID’s around their necks similar to what dogs wear.

I don't. I don't carry ID except when I am operating a motor vehicle on public roads. That's the only time. Ever.

I feel like this stuff is getting out of control and it seems to be happening in all areas of the country and at all levels of enforcement.

I tell you, this is an issue that can unite left, right and middle.

It is unacceptable that law enforcement is acting as if the general public are a bunch of criminals who should be summarily arrested, brutalized or killed.

jogging in her toe shoes and sporting headphones.

Jogging while wearing headphones is pretty stupid. She probably needed the education she just got.

We need to create new laws with stiff civil and criminal penalties and fines for wearing headphones in public...Good thinking.

It's just not safe!!

A little time in the cage will teach her.
