Defense lawyer Michael Horn described Black Lives Matter activist Chanice Reyes in court today as a “kind and generous young lady.” This was far from the truth when Reyes took a cane and bashed NYC cops over the head. It was also untrue when Reyes flipped off reporters during her arrest for the assault.
Unfortunately, Reyes was freed following her arraignment on multiple counts of second-degree assault and related charges. Reyes whooped and jumped for joy when she was released from the Manhattan Detention Complex today.
The New York Post reports that Reyes went straight to the “Occupy City Hall” encampment to continue her “activism’ for BLM.
Is this the “light touch” that de Blasio speaks of when he discusses punishment for criminals? Two officers were left with blood streaming down their faces after Reyes bashed them in the head on the Brooklyn Bridge when BLM crashed a pro-police march.
Our previous report on the attack by Reyes:
Yesterday, three NYPD officers were violently attacked and beaten with baseball bats during a “Stop the Violence” march on the Brooklyn Bridge.
Chief of Department Terry Monahan, who recently took a knee to show his compliance with Black Lives Matter, was one of the police officers who was violently attacked with baseball bats.
Townhall reports – Chief Monahan was marching with pro-police clergy when he was attacked with canes, baseball bats, and a variety of debris, according to ABC7 News. Thirty-eight people were arrested in the mayhem.
Here’s the video of the attack. ***Warning***the video is very graphic, and the violence against the police officers is disturbing.

NYPD News released these horrific images of the injuries NYPD officers sustained at the hands of the “Stop the Violence” protesters, in a city where the mayor, Bill de Blasio’s top priority is trolling President Trump by spray painting messages on the street in front of Trump Tower.

“Now What” shared an incredible video of an interesting transaction that took place right before the violent protest on the Brooklyn Bridge.
“Now What,” who posted the video on Youtube, explains that the delivery of the long packages and several individual bats to two black individuals from the trunk of a vehicle, that can be seen below, was taken from a surveillance camera outside of City Hall, and “appears to show protesters receiving a small shipment of bats before anti-cops activists clashed with officers on the #Brooklyn Bridge Wednesday morning.”
The person in the pink shirt and light-colored pants who’s accepting the baseball bats from the trunk of the vehicle in front of City Hall, has an uncanny resemblance to the person in the video wearing a pink shirt and grey sweatpants who repeatedly swings and strikes a baseball bat at NYPD officers below.
Here’s another view of the black man running from the “peaceful” protest after assaulting the NYPD officers with a baseball bat. NYPD Crime Stoppers is offering a $2500 reward for anyone who can ID him.

The New York Post reports – Police sources said the bats were delivered so the anti-cop activists could confront a “unity” rally proceeding over the Brooklyn Bridge into Manhattan.
The unity rally included clergy, law enforcement and community activists.
It’s unclear if the City Hall protesters used the bats in the wild Brooklyn Bridge brawl between opposing protesters. But at least one was recovered after the dust settled, police sources said.
A cane was also used in the melee, with one counter-demonstrator seen on video using the object to whack cops over the head during the melee on the bridge.
In all, four cops, including Chief of Department Terence Monahan — the NYPD’s highest-ranking uniformed officer — and one civilian were injured in the clash, sources said.
