Austin, TX – A video showing a group of masked police officers leading a handcuffed man to the side of a building where they proceed to attack him is going viral on Facebook.

The video was posted by Facebook user Mo Anderson. It appears to have taken place at the Signature Austin Convenience store on 900 East Avenue in Austin. The officers are dressed in all black, with the word “POLICE” featured on both front and back.

The man, who is African American, is also wearing all black, and carrying a backpack. His hands appear to be handcuffed behind his back as three officers lead him out of what looks to be a convenience store.

Given the timing of the video, it is not clear why the man was arrested, or how the incident began, but one thing is clear—the man is not resisting arrest. He is not attempting to get away from the officers, and he appears to be complying with their orders.

However, in addition to the woman recording the scene from the front seat of her car, there also appear to be a few other bystanders, reminding the officers that there are multiple witnesses.

The officers then lead the man to the side of the building. The woman who is recording the scene turns the camera away for a matter of seconds and then exits her car when she sees that another man has followed the officers to the side of the building.

The man in handcuffs can be heard crying out in pain on the video before Anderson reaches the side of the building. When he appears on camera again, he is on the ground, with two officers holding him in place while the third officer fires a Taser at him.

After the man is shocked with a taser, one of the officers then begins striking him in the head and pushing his head into the concrete sidewalk. The officer stops hitting the man long enough for the first officer to shock him with a taser once again.

As the officers are assaulting the man, the one holding the taser is also seen looking around, assessing the surroundings, and the witnesses who are watching and hearing the man’s exclamatory cries of “No,” “Ow,” and “Help me!”

“Put your hands behind your back!” One officer yells, almost seeming to attempt to counter the man’s cries. However, as any witnesses to the scene can see, there are two officers on top of the man, and a third kneeling over him with a Taser. If the assault had caused the man’s hands to slip from behind his back, it is clear that he would not have been able to secure them again, in the physical position he was put in.

The video of the assault was published on Facebook, and it has nearly 12,000 shares and over 2,000 comments. Both the man and the officers who physically abused him have not been identified, and there does not appear to be much public information on the circumstances surrounding the incident.

  1. Somebody with even minimal equipment could easily take these images and zoom in and mine them for telltale data. The worst you can end up with is more information than you have now. Did anybody even try?

    I see many things just in the cover photo alone that could be used to begin to determine where this took place. You have the name of the establishment, what appears to maybe be the numerical portion of an address on the door, various kinds of signage on the wall and in the windows… And these are just the things I noticed at first blush on a 5-inch LCD screen, hardly the largest image with the greatest resolution available on the market.

    • Good! It’s like I said in my previous comment when I first read the article, there were more than enough glaring clues present in the cover photo alone for anybody with high enough resolution to pick out the relevant details to be able to find this place had they actually bothered to look. Thank you for looking.

    • Just give it a few more short years and it will be right on the sidewalks in broad daylight….. normalized. People will be so apathetic and conditioned they will walk by on their phones not even paying attention anymore as it will be the standard, just another day in America. Thru the lightposts (surveillance posts) they will play America the Beautiful as the beatings take place. No one will think anything of it, the masses will cheer and waive their flags as they foam out the mouths screaming freedom and were #1. Anyone who disagrees with the beatings will also be beaten and labeled unpatriotic, enemy of the state and a terrorist. If you ask me, our future looks bright. I can’t wait to become old and on my rocking chair watching all the exciting action from my porch. Who needs Netflix when there is so much action and entertainment which will be happening right before our very eyes…. all for free.

      • Not free homie, your taxes pay for that beating, pay for the guy to live in prison, and the million dollar lawsuit they cause against the city.

        • Yeah i know, i thought of that before i posted, but it sounded better to get a free beating rather than one you have to pay for. Who doesn’t like free things right?? Was just trying to make everyone feel better that they wouldn’t have to pay, but thanks for telling them they have to pay for their beatings it will make their work day that much worse now. Don’t feel bad though, i’m very sure most won’t mind.

      • You are right, except that they already do it in broad daylight. The American people are the most misinformed, dumb down, propagandized population in all of human history, bar none. They stuff their faces with fake foods (GMO‘s), inject their children with poisonous vaccines, breath in chem-trail neuro-toxins, drink fluoridated water which contain more neuro-toxins, and read, hear and see “mainstream” news, movies, tv even commercials which are all lies, filling their brains with nothing but incomprehensible distortions to which they develop a perspective of the world which is wholly incompatible with reality,.. And yet, find it acceptable that police beat and taser a handcuffed suspect.

    • You see what you want to see instead of seeing what is happening.
      He wasn’t moved to an alley. He was moved to the side of the storefront so patrons of the store don’t get caught up in whatever altercation takes place while he is being placed under arrest. As would be expected in the era of resist at all costs, this man decided to resist arrest and put up a fight which could have caused injury to a store patron had they remained in the stores doorway.
      Repeatedly, “Put your hands behind your back!” Why? because the man was refusing to comply and resisting arrest and hoping to draw a crowd since that is the in vogue thing for minorities to do these days, necessitating the police to use force including stun gun, which coukd have hit an innocent store patron had they remained in the store’s doorway.

      If you are stupid enough to resist arrest, then you leave the police with only two choices. either they must use force to arrest you, or they must let you walk away after committing whatever crime you have committed. I personally don’t have a problem with you guys living in a hell hole of your own creation where the criminals who plague your comunities are allowed to simply roam free for fear that the police might have to use some force to protect your community.

      • Yeah, must have been what the cop was doing when he beat up my 5′ 1″ 21 year old daughter for telling him not to use such vulgar language on her.
        Must have been what he was doing three years later, when he went to jail for raping a transgender women, in the back seat of his patrol car, under a bridge, while he was on duty.
        Sure, he was only making sure no “innocent” people got hurt while he was committing rape.

        • Hey Soros sucker, it is quite probable that they may have loosened his hands for some reason and were attempting to rehandcuff him. I have seen videos of police officers adjusting cuffs, replacing wire ties with real handcuffs, or removing cuffs to allow a suspect to remove an article of clothing.
          What happened at the side of the building is unknown because there wasn’t video of the first few moments.
          What I do know is that if cops have supposedly drug a man off into an alley, where they supposedly won’t be seen, they aren’t going to waste time screaming and yelling at the person to put their hands behind their back.

      • each time I watch….in big screen mode…..and pausing it to get a clearer view….I see his hands behind his back, appear to be restrained….and he is complying….also….he would NOT be strong enough to hold them back their while the body is being hit….we’re he not already restrained….its anatomy .physiology and physics….I wish you did your statement’……under penalty of perjury….and in a proper declaratory form……such as prefacing what you wrote with….”the following facts are within my direct knowledge, and if called to testify as an expert witness, I could and would do so competently.”…….and then after your statement ….say “sworn under Penalty of perjury under the laws of my own state, the laws of the State of California, and applicable Federal Laws”……I dare you to do that……Timoteo Suazo…..I double dare ya!

        • That is one of the most asinine statements I have ever read. In what confused state of hysteria were you able to surmise that any person’s opinion would be subject to any states purgery laws, or that any officer of the law would ever place any person under oath just to hear what their opinion is about something?
          That’s simply not the way it works; not in my state, and not in your state either.

          • My intent is to show you would not and could not be able to back up your statement once science and other was involved…….and I’m well aware of the laws…..as I have done much consulting on regulatory abuse issues…..and despite serious brain injuries, I follow patterns and trends…..I started martial arts in 1970….did a dance halls breaking up a few fights each shift, from 81-83, I focus on detaining and other applicable skills…….its been decades, of learning and real world application…….in 2014, I was hit by a tree branch and paralyzed for a while.,and in the hospital for months from brain bleeding swelling and other……..my brain neck spine and joints show the story…so Im speaking from many perspectives of both direct experiance, observation, training and other…….and youll see it demonstrated (if they can find the person alive)….they could have handled the situation way better……and you know it

          • Thank You!……my rebutting your points strongly was not meant personally, rather, so as to cause you to consider expanding your perspectives…..I like that we are both leaving this on a positive, agreeing we can disagree, even passionately, and yet still enjoy each other and get along

          • the experts sure would have fun toying with you under heavy cross examination……you would be unable to support many positions made, you would not look like a smart person, nor a highly ethical person……in the light of brighter consciousness…….

      • That is exactly what happened. They took him around the corner most likely not to interfere with the business (who is going to go into the store with a bunch of cops at the front door). They probably had to undo his cuffs to get the back pack off to pat him down and search the back pack and when they did and wanted to re-cuff him he resisted and would not comply. You do what you have to regain compliance…. this time it was the taser – you can hear the cops asking for him to put his hands back behind his back to re-cuff him, when he came out of the store he was cuffed already. All is not what it seems…..

      • I guess you are stupid or blind? There is no thrd option. Everybody see that guy got bot hands in handcuffs on his back. So the cop was yalling just to cover the pure guy call for help. At the end why they bring him behind the store after they got arrested him? Don’t they supposed to put him in vehicle? I really hate arrogants!!

  2. This is not proof of jack shit. They took him aside to speak with him, the girl stopped filming them to put her stupid face on camera and we missed whatever happened on the side of that business. He might have tried to run or fight, but we don’t know, yet “this is proof police are a gang” shut the fuck up!

  3. Free thought project There is no option on your website to leave comments, therefore I’m writing here.
    Video shows how many cop’s where there beating that guy. Everyone can see they are one white female (who was beating the guy),A tall black oficir (who holds was torturing rhe guy with teaser ), and one white oficir who was on top of that guy (pushing guys head on concrete ) There must be record in police which unit responded to that call. The rest of home work you do!
