The police Sergeants Benevolent Association (SBA) expressed outrage over the the latest attack of a New York City police officer. The attack was caught on camera.
40-year-old Steven Haynes allegedly punched and jumped on the officer after he told Haynes to move off the sidewalk. Haynes had allegedly been drinking alcohol and blocking pedestrian traffic.
The police camera video appears to show Haynes hitting then jtaking down the officer and continuing the attack as another police officer attempts to pull him off.
Haynes was arrested and released a short time later on bail.
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.Pat Lynch, Police Benevolent Association President
News Channel 4 in New York says it reached Haynes, who said he was resting on the sidewalk from a leg injury when police asked him to move. Of his actions, he reportedly stated "I feel bad."
