Austin Bully Cop Jason Mistric Attempts to Intimidate Mom and Baby at Father’s Court Hearing

March 9, 2012 in News, Police Accountability

On Thursday March 8th at 2PM I attended John Bush and Matt Medina’s pretrial hearing for their arrest last winter for filming an officer.  That video is here: target=”_blank”>
The hearing was reset, nothing special there, but what happened next was beyond strange.

As I’m seated on a bench in the hall outside the courtroom, the man who kidnapped John and Matt, Officer Jason Mistric (badge number #4856) sets down 4 pages of printouts containing facebook conversations about John and Matt’s arrest. Here are the docs he left:

When I chased him down in the hallway and asked him about his action he says its “trash” then tries to have us kicked out of the public hallway.  Here is video of the end of that confrontation:

Next we spoke with the chief of police about the incident.  He kissed our baby and smiled as he made a copy of the facebook printouts assuring us he’d call John.  Here is that interaction :

When I looked closer at the printouts I realized the account he was logged into when he took the screenshots was an account I had conversed with a few weeks back.  In fact the account, “Max Rock”, was an account many of us thought was a cop because it was only commenting on recent Austin arrest videos and asking obvious questions, so of course, I had chatted him up trying to get info.  The conversation was WEIRD and ended with him saying he has many gigs of “screenshots”.  Here is that conversation:

I’m not sure what to make of it.  Is he stalking me?  Is he threatening our family?  Was he acting as a rogue officer or was this part of his work?  Creepy.  To the max.

Here is my recap right after the event:

    1. Catherine, John (and sweet, sweet baby), Matthew, Antonio… I admire all of you so much. Thank you so much for you sincere dedication to the message of freedom. I’m just a mechanic from Odessa, TX who loves Liberty, my wife and my four kids and want a better world for them. In Liberty, -caleb

    2. Rhonda Omberg says:

      First impressions? Looks to me like he is trying to assemble some kind of dossier on you and your Austin pals that he has also had run-ins with, in case he needs them in court or for any future disciplinary hearings he has to go through – which I hope will be soon. This guy has major issues – seems like a sociopath to me. I’d steer way away.

    3. Austin Guy says:

      Some of these cops are psychotic! Mistric, Oborski, Snider … oh yeah, and the ones who murder young black males.

    4. Momma Ally says:

      my heart stopped when the chief took the baby… Cat and John seemed ok with it but I was on edge the whole video until he handed her back and as far as the creepy stalker cop there are several things that can be done other than filing some stupid report that goes nowhere like: 1) find out who his wife is and let her know he is stalking other females online beyond the capacity of his badge 2) track his ass down online and print out everything you find about him, copy it and serve him up with some intimidation just like he did you. He’ll back off if he thinks there may be actual retribution beyond his control. IE the control of being able to brush off some light questioning by the chief VS a bunch of activists in the area knowing where he lives and who he lays down with at night.
      Just some suggestions of how to fight back if you choose that road. either way dont let that scary shit get to you! Make no mistake that WAS his point

    5. Pete Eyre says:

      wow that’s sick. no one with a conscience would be happy to pay for such actions.

      ademo just shared your recount at

      take care and keep making public such attempts at intimidation! transparency only hurts those who have something to hide.

    6. I just wish the Austin Police Dept. would quit making false arrests of people who videotape them and I wish they would quit making up lies that people spit on them.

      I also wish they would quit arresting women sitting in the front seat who have done nothing and then manhandle them.

      I think that the APD has too many cops, too many bad apples, and too make people who abuse other people’s God given and Constitutional rights.

    7. Anonymoususer says:

      This behavior is unacceptable. These people are supposed to be protecting and serving our great community. Men like this that are given the privilege to do this job are insulting to the rest of our police force that is working hard day in and day out while this guy feels the need to intimidate people with the power of his badge and creepy way of giving information. I would like to see the chief of police take this seriously and ADDRESS THIS ISSUE immediately. This is a public safety concern and possible risk. We can’t have people like this running around with a badge and gun.

    8. [...] Catherine said of the matter, “I’m not sure what to make of it. Is he stalking me? Is he threatening our family? Was he acting as a rogue officer or was this part of his work? Creepy. To the max.” The link below is a first hand account of what happened to Catherine Bleish including video taken after the incident and a scan of the note that was passed.
