A New York Police Department officer was punched and wrestled to the ground in Brooklyn this week, and it was all caught on camera and yet the criminal is already released without bail.
The NYPD says the officers had told Haynes to move off of the sidewalk where he had allegedly been drinking alcohol and blocking pedestrians.
It was then that Haynes punched the officer and wrestled him to the ground. The officer's partner is heard calling for backup before shouting and using a baton to try to remove Haynes.
Haynes was eventually removed and arrested on several charges including resisting arrest, assaulting an officer, and disorderly conduct.
The union representing the cops tweeted a statement from PBA President Pat Lynch, first given to the NY Post: "When will our elected leaders admit that the streets are out of control? The perps know they can sucker punch a cop and escape with no consequences. And cops know that City Hall will not back them up. The situation is getting more dangerous by the day."
By Saturday, Haynes had been released.
