Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg defended his decision to release the illegal aliens accused of attacking an NYPD officer without bail, citing a lack of evidence.

The incident, which occurred near a shelter for illegal aliens, involved a group of men assaulting two officers.

Bragg emphasized the need to conclusively identify each defendant for court convictions.

“In Manhattan, we don’t tolerate or accept assaults on police officers. I watched the tape this week. Despicable behavior. It sickened me and outraged me,” Bragg said.

“While the video is shocking and disturbing, in order to secure convictions in a court of law, it is essential that we conclusively identify each defendant,” he said.

Despite outrage, he stressed the importance of charging the right individuals.

“In a court of law, our profound obligation is to make sure we have right people charged with the right crimes. I don’t think New Yorkers want to charge the wrong person,” Bragg said.

Meanwhile, police are still searching for additional suspects, and four defendants are believed to have fled to California, possibly en route to Mexico.
