Oborski-ing = The act of an officer abusing a female. That officer is Obosrki-ing that lady!
July 3, 2012
If you were going to hold an anti-police corruption rally, you’d probably pick a different place than the steps of police headquarters. But Peaceful Streets is pissed and it’s putting it right in APD’s face.
The Peaceful Streets Project, a group headed by an Austin, TX man who alleges assault by police and falsification of charges, held a Know Your Rights Training Session where the primary topic was how to react when confronted by bully cops. Several speakers gave explicit instructions in police obedience and tips that focused on keeping you alive and out of jail.
The group was born when Antonio Buehler (pronounced bee-ler) was arrested after snapping photos of two Austin police officers abusing a young woman. In photos Buehler took, police can be seen holding a handcuffed woman’s hands tortuously high behind her back while trying to pick her up off the floor.
When Buehler began asking questions one of the officers approached him and asked “What the hell do you think you’re doing?” He proceeded to slam Buehler up against the closed trunk of a truck. Buehler stood in a non-threatening position while the officer got in his face and pushed him. Next Buehler claims Officer Patrick Oborski laughed and claimed Buehler spit on him, a crime punishable by up to 10 years in federal prison. Buehler was jailed for 16 hours. Fortunately, someone across the street filmed the whole thing (and we never see Oborski wipe the spit).
Buehler, who is a teacher in Austin, attended the United States Military Academy at West Point, has a BS in Systems Engineering, an MBA from the Stanford Graduate School of Business, and is an Iraqi war veteran with a non-violent history, is hellbent on holding police accountable for their actions.
The group is encouraging everyone to film their interactions with police. On July 14, they’re holding an all day summit where they plan to hand out video cameras to citizens that want to record abusive police behavior.
At first it seemed like the meeting would be hindered by the lack of electricity; it was to be derived from an outlet right outside the lion’s den, APD HQ. But by the time Buehler took the stage (more like the sidewalk) someone, with or without permission, had procured a power source. The training proceeded to relay practical advice on how to prevent police situations from leading to your imprisonment or even death.
