A Back the Blue protester was caught on camera slapping a woman in the face as she formed a barrier around his mom during a Sunday pro-police rally in Brooklyn.
Video footage shows a crowd of people around an older woman standing against a fence in the Bay Ridge neighborhood, but it is unclear from whom they separate her.

After the woman was attacked, the attacker apparently waits around to see if there will be reprisals.

Police overtook the violent man, who was later seen next to his mother. The police took him to a police van, although he was not wearing handcuffs.
Frustrated counter-demonstrators who had urged police to arrest him reportedly blocked the police van, forcing law enforcement officers to get them out of their way.
As part of the two days of protest, flags had been burned by a number of counter-protesters, and the locals holding alcoholic drinks were on site and questioned Black Lives Matter protesters.
A Black Lives Matter protester was also arrested earlier in the counter-demonstration and seemed captivated by NYPD.
The budget of the New York City police, which was harshly criticized after several officers used excessive force against protesters in the days and weeks following George Floyd’s death, had a budget cut by $ 1 billion.
The city government’s decision has led to warnings from law enforcement circles that smaller police budgets will result in fewer officers on the street and an increase in violent crimes.
Since then, they have reported increased violent crime rates.
