New York City Man Set Free by Liberal Judge After Punching a Cop in the Face Skips His Court Date

A New York City man who was set free by a left-wing judge after being caught on video punching a cop in the face skipped his court date on Monday, demonstrating the perils of liberal criminal justice policies.

Steven Haynes, the 40-year-old suspect, was set free last week without bail and allowed to walk the streets after admitting to hitting a police officer. After he skipped his court appearance on Monday, he was arrested on a bench warrant shortly afterward.

The video of the attack shows a struggle between Haynes and a police officer on a Brooklyn street. Haynes had been reportedly drinking alcohol in public and hassling pedestrians while sitting on a sidewalk. After the punch, the cop’s partner had to beat Haynes with a collapsible baton to subdue him. It took several law enforcement officials to take him into custody.
