2 More Migrant Suspects Arrested In NYPD Officer Beating
New York City police arrested and charged two more suspects in the shocking and brutal attack on two police officers last weekend. That’s in addition to the five illegal migrants arrested and then promptly released without bail by progressive District Attorney Alvin Bragg.
The New York Daily News identified the latest two migrants apprehended as Yohenry Brito, 24, and Jandry Barros, 21. Unlike the others, some of whom reportedly already fled to California, Brito was held on bail.
Officials described the two additional suspects as “migrants,” the same description given to the five who were previously taken into custody. Officers are outraged that five of the alleged assailants are back out on the streets after being caught on tape attacking two of their compatriots.
Chief of Patrol John Chell declared “they should be sitting in Rikers right now. They should be indicted this week and taken off our streets.”
He said cops are being attacked because there are no consequences to what once was a sure ticket to a long jail term. Calling the suspects cowards, Chell noted, “you have eight people attacking a lieutenant and a cop, running up to them to kick them in the face.”
One of the first five illegal migrants arrested flipped off cameras as he was walked by gathered journalists.
The city’s Police Benevolent Association expressed its anger that the suspects were released without bail. President Patrick Hendry noted that attacks on officers is “epidemic” and caused by the judicial system’s revolving door.
Republican Staten Island Borough President Vito J. Fossella called on Washington to deport the suspects immediately.
Fossella posted on X, formerly Twitter, “What universe are we living in where migrants, who are living rent-free in our city, are allowed to brutally attack police officers and then are released without consequences?”
He added that the system in 2024 regularly protects violent perpetrators while punishing law-abiding citizens.
Even Democratic Gov. Kathy Hochul admitted that deportation was something that “should be looked at” by federal officials. She asserted, “If someone commits a crime against a police officer in the state of New York and they’re not here legally, it’s definitely worth checking into.”
Radical leftist prosecutor Alvin Bragg defended the decision to release the suspects without bail. “Every defendant charged so far is facing felony charges that carry a penalty of up to seven years.”
But meanwhile, they are free to roam the streets.
