The shocking attack on two New York City police officers near Times Square last weekend became even worse. It was revealed that the illegal migrants arrested for the beating of the policemen while they were on the ground were released from custody without bail.
It was about 8:30 p.m. Saturday when the officers asked a group of young men loitering in the area to move along.
Security footage from the scene clearly showed the illegals ganging up on the two officers. One policeman attempted to arrest a suspect only to be pummeled to the ground by the others.
In New York City migrant mobs attacked two police officers who were trying to break up a crowd. Those arrested were released back to the streets! Again Biden and his pathetic administration continue to endanger the lives of American citizens! DO YOU FEEL SAFE??? TRUMP 2024!

The mob then began to kick and punch the officers in the head as they tried to get back on their feet.
Four illegals, 19-year-old Darwin Andres Gomez and Kelvin Servat Arocha, 21-year-old Juarez Wilson, and 24-year-old Yorman Reveron were subsequently arrested, according to the New York Post.
A fifth suspect was taken into custody Monday night and charged in the violent attack. All most likely seek asylum.
The Manhattan District Attorney’s Office confirmed it is investigating the alleged attack and poring through additional video footage.
The officers were treated at the scene for their injuries. One reportedly received cuts to the face while the other suffered bruising, though the results could have been far worse.
According to the Post, one of the suspects has had multiple encounters with law enforcement. Reveron has two open cases in Manhattan for robbery.
One of them involved an alleged incident in November in which he is accused of pushing, striking, and biting a Nordstrom Rack employee. Reveron was caught shoplifting an item valued at $130, according to law enforcement.
The sources also reported that the suspect in December allegedly “punched with a closed fist” a Macy’s employee. The loss prevention officer was attempting to stop a robbery when the attack took place.
New York City police officials are not happy with the lenient treatment of the suspects.
Police Benevolent Association President Patrick Hendry said in a statement, “Attacks on police officers are becoming an epidemic, and the reason is a revolving door we’re seeing in cases like this one.”
Hendry declared it is becoming “impossible” for law enforcement to effectively deal with rampant crime when the justice system will not protect them.
