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.
Haynes also faces charges of harassment, menacing, and resisting arrest in addition to his felony assault charge. He may ultimately face more time in jail because of his inability or unwillingness to show up to his court appearance.
Haynes is enabled by liberal public officials like New York state senator Julia Salazar of the Bronx, who are known to cheer when violent thugs are let loose on the streets to cause mayhem.
Wealth-based detention doesn’t protect me or any other hypothetical victim of a crime. That is what this is about. Cash bail should be completely eliminated. If someone is charged with…attempting to spit in a cop’s mouth?…then let a jury decide what to do about it. https://t.co/CIPq12VfNS

Liberal bail reform policies have empowered criminals and put law-abiding citizens at risk, as the case study of New Jersey has shown:
On January 1 of this year, New Jersey overhauled its criminal justice system and virtually eliminated the old cash bail structure, replacing it with one that relies heavily on a mathematical risk assessment formula…
From January 1 through March 31, 10,193 eligible defendants were processed. Preventive detention was ordered for only 12.4%. Nearly 85% were given pretrial release, some with conditions…
Outraged mother June Rodgers of Millville blames bail reform for the murder of her son. He was shot to death on a street in Vineland in April after a verbal dispute with a man driving a car. Cops arrested career criminal Jules Black, who’d been picked up on a separate gun charge four days before, and released with no bail…
The state has created a Division of Pretrial Services to monitor defendants. The funds come from court fees. There have been 173 employees hired so far. The projected spending for next fiscal year is expected to be in the range of $36 million to $38 million dollars.
The Office of Administrative Courts was unable to provide any statistics on the number of released defendants who have re-offended since January 1, or the number of those who have failed to appear for scheduled court dates.
New York City, with the rest of the state not far behind, is crumbling to pieces because of left-wing government officials with no respect for the rule of law.
Teacher’s Union President Claims It is ‘White Privilege’ to Worry about Children Committing Suicide During School Closures
Scott Wilson, who serves as president of the Pasco Association of Educators in the state of Washington, claimed on a Zoom call earlier this month that it is “white supremacy” to consider reopening public schools and any concerns over children committing suicides while isolated and away from school is “white privilege.”
Additionally, Wilson claimed that reopening schools would be the equivalent of letting rioters storm into the U.S. Capitol.
“There are decisions to be made. You stand on the lawn of the U.S. Capitol as people break down barriers and head to the doors. Do you follow?” Wilson asked on the call. “You stand at the governor’s mansion. The crowd breaks down barriers to enter the grounds. Do you follow? Or do you choose a different way? We must not ignore the culture of white supremacy and white privilege.”
“We speak of equity, we speak of care of all students, yet we listen and attend to voices saying ‘Reopen everything, I’m free to breathe,’ supporting white privilege,” Wilson continued.
“[Parents] complain their children are suicidal without school or sports. As a father, daily surviving the suicide of my son, I find these statements ignorant and another expression of white privilege,” Wilson said, demonstrating his complete lack of concern of the children’s safety.
The bizarre series of mentally-ill comments can be seen here:
How can they say it's safe to reopen schools when they can't even meet in person to discuss it?

Big League Politics has reported on teachers claiming it is racist to want to open schools.
North Carolina teacher Justin Parmenter, who serves on the board of directors for the North Carolina Association of Education (NCAE), is saying that any parent who wants their child to return to school is guilty of “white privilege.”
“White folks threatening to pull their kids out of public schools if those schools don’t open those doors during a pandemic that is disproportionately impacting communities of color = weaponized white privilege,” he wrote in a Twitter post on Dec. 19.
“Using disproportionate wealth and power to try to impact policy in this manner is the definition of white privilege,” Parmenter wrote in a tweet from Dec. 20.
Parmenter is an elementary-school teacher who revels in indoctrinating his students to his political agenda, as NC’s Education First Alliance has exposed.
“Why do some people claim that teachers should not be political? In what ways is that stance political? How do you respond when people tell you that teaching should not be political?” Parmeter wrote in a Twitter post on Oct. 18.
He believes in indoctrinating children to his political beliefs so strongly that he even hosted a workshop encouraging other teachers to do so shortly before the election…
Unless the people come together and reject this insanity pushed by soulless leftists, the pandemic will mean a permanent shuttering of American life.
The radical Left hates white people, and their dehumanizing rhetoric could lead to genocide if this wicked ideology is not defeated.
