Internet slams 'Democrat policies' as migrants freed without bail after attacking cops in Times Square are arrested in Phoenix
The brutal attack, which was captured on film, led to their initial arrest in New York.
The incident involved a group of seven individuals attacking two officers on January 27, following a dispute at a migrant shelter, per Daily Mail.

Out of the seven, six were charged with the crime. While one of them was held at Rikers Island, the remaining five were released without bail.
In a surprising twist, four out of the five who were released managed to escape from New York.
They allegedly used false identities to secure free bus tickets to California from a Catholic charity.
The four escapees were identified by Fox as 19-year-olds Darwin Andres Gomez and Kelvin Servita Arocha, 21-year-old Wilson Juarez and 24-year-old Yorman Reveron.
Fox News reported on Monday that "several" of the four were arrested in Phoenix. However, the identities of the suspects arrested have not been released.

We need MORE reporters like this that are willing to turn up the heat 🔥

Yohenry Brito, a 24-year-old Venezuelan national, was the only suspect among those arraigned in a Manhattan criminal court on Thursday who is currently being held on bail at Rikers Island.
Brito, who has a history of minor offenses including petty larceny for stealing merchandise worth $275 from Bergdorf Goodman and $139 worth of clothing from Macy's, was recognized in the video footage of the attack due to a unique tattoo.
This led the Manhattan District Attorney's Office to justify a $15,000 cash bail or a $50,000 bond for him alone.
Jhoan Boada, 22, the sixth suspect, is believed to have stayed in New York City.
After his release, he was seen making an obscene gesture at the press gathered outside the court.
Jandry Barros, 21, the seventh suspect who was initially arrested, was released without charges due to insufficient evidence, despite having a prior record with law enforcement.
Alvin Bragg, the Manhattan district attorney who is supported by George Soros, reportedly faced significant backlash following the release of the five suspects.
Bragg stated on Saturday that his office plans to submit evidence to a grand jury on Tuesday.
According to Bragg, the total number of suspects is twelve.
The identities of five additional suspects involved in the assault on the NYPD officers have not been disclosed by the police. On Friday, Bragg stood by the decision to set them free.
The brutal attack
The violent incident occurred around 8.30 pm when police officers tried to disperse a disorderly group at 220 West 42 Street. A fight ensued between a suspect in a yellow sweatshirt and the officers.
The migrants reportedly attacked the officers, kicking them while they were trying to restrain another man. The suspects then fled east on 42nd Street toward 7th Avenue.
Four of the suspects - Gomez, Arocha, Wilson, and Reveron, were arrested around 10.44 pm that night.
They were charged with Assault on a Police Officer, Gang Assault, Obstructing Governmental Administration, and Disorderly Conduct, but were released without monetary bail.
It is believed that Gomez, Arocha, Juarez, and Reveron provided false names to a church-affiliated nonprofit group that assists migrants in leaving the city, according to law enforcement sources.
Social media calls New York 'corrupt'
A Facebook user remarked, "I don’t know who released them without bail but that person needs to be off the bench if they are a judge, and they need to be fined and disbarred if they were an attorney."
Another replied, "It's NYC their all corrupt."
"NYC is a “no cash bail” state because of democrat policies," a person opined.
"Oh sure…. We will welcome them with open arms in California thanks Gov Newsom and sleepy Joe. WTF," stated a user.
"DEPORT them!!!!" added another.
