“What we saw was appalling. It was unnecessary, and it was downright criminal. So, we are now searching for the individuals who did this to our officer. Not only were they attacking the officer. They were trying to free the suspect who was actually being arrested. That’s downright criminal,” Baltimore Police Commissioner Michael Harrison.
