Tonight, we’ve received disturbing footage out of Austin.
It shows a group of thugs taunting the homeless man under an overpass, before lighting his mattress and personal belongings on fire.
Law Enforcement Today spoke with an Austin police officer on the condition of anonymity. He said the homeless man is known in the area and believed to be a combat veteran who has battled PTSD for years.
Apparently Austin police are reviewing the footage and trying to identify the suspects.
In the video, the homeless man rushes to recover his mattress from the fire while shouting, “I live here!”
“What are you doing?!” he cried. “I live here! What are you doing! What the fuck are you doing?!”
Officials are working to determine if extremist groups have infiltrated police brutality protests across the country.
Law enforcement is looking into if they deliberately tipped largely peaceful demonstrations toward violence.
To make matters worse, they’re investigating if foreign adversaries – such as Russia – were behind a growing disinformation campaign on social media.
Update: A previous version of this article said Antifa was involved in the riot in Austin, Texas. We have removed reference to Antifa while authorities continue to investigate whether extremist groups have infiltrated otherwise peaceful protests.
