Keeping the streets safe
 
Austin police drag jogger to car screaming after jaywalking without ID

A Texas woman was dragged screaming to a police car in Austin, Texas after being arrested for failing to provide ID while jaywalking.

The woman, pulled to a police car in gym clothes, was captured on video shouting, “I didn’t do anything wrong.”

A University of Texas Student filmed the police capturing the jogger and placing her in an officer’s car.

“I was sitting at the Starbucks at 24th and San Antonio,” the student, Chris Quintero, told the Daily Texan, the student newspaper for the University of Texas-Austin. “Then I hear a cop shout at an innocent girl jogging through West Campus with her headphones on.”

Police told the woman to provide identification, Quintero remarked. When she wouldn’t, the officer grabbed her arm and placed her in handcuffs.

“She repeatedly pleaded with them, saying that she was just exercising and to let her go,” Quintero said. Quintero is heard in the video saying, “I saw you,” after the woman calls across the street, saying, “I was doing nothing wrong. I was crossing the street.”

Police then apparently called for backup. Two additional officers on bicycles arrived as the arresting officers were putting the jogger in the car.

The Daily Texan reached out to the Austin Police Department, where police spokeswoman Lisa Cortinas said police were working on “pedestrian enforcement.” Cortinas maintained that police weren’t targeting jaywalkers specifically, but instead focusing on pedestrian and bike safety overall.

“District representatives were working pedestrian enforcement at 24th Street and Guadalupe,” she said. “[In this case], the call is titled failure to identify.”

“I don’t think there’s any [jaywalking] initiative going on out there,” a second spokeswoman said.

After her arrest, the woman, who is not identified in the Texan, is shown screaming as she is secured in the car.

“I didn’t do anything wrong,” she shouts. “I didn’t do anything wrong. I didn’t fucking do anything wrong. I just crossed the street.”

Not sure what the deal was, but who ever wrote this story clearly wanted to sway the reader.

What we need in this situation are some Russian cossacks to whip these out of control jaywalkers into shape.

More evidence of police overreaction.

This is a great video. Funny, sad, scary, and infuriating all at the same time.
