Austin Police Chief's UNBELIEVABLE response to jogger arrest.

Last Thursday a female jogger in Austin, Texas was arrested, handcuffed, and thrown into a police car for the high crime of jay-walking. Many people think that the police overreacted.

So Austin Police Chief Acevedo issued a statement about the incident. The chief said it's no big deal because the police just arrested her and didn't sexually assault her.

Read that last sentence again. Let it sink in.

The story, along with video of the actual arrest, is here:
