U.S. officers suspended for death of Black man

U.S. officers suspended for death of Black man”

Prude - who was discovered running around the city streets naked and reportedly high on PCP in March - died following the detainment by Rochester police.

"Mr Daniel Prude was failed by our police department, our mental health care system, our society, and he was failed by me", Ms Warren told reporters.

Hours after the announcement, protesters demonstrated late into the night outside police headquarters in the city of 210,000, New York's third-largest.

The confrontation came on the second day of peaceful demonstrations over Prude's death.

"He was the normal Rell that I knew", Prude's aunt Letoria Moore said when she talked to him two days before his death, according to NBC News.

Michael Mazzeo, president of the Locust Club police union, said the seven officers appeared to be following guidelines. And I really do - I really would love to see them stand in front of a judge and have their prosecution just like they prosecuted my brother. "They shall feel free to do so - I have been sued before".

Warren did not announce any action against Singletary. Approached at a community event, Singletary declined to comment but said he would speak later. Three officers were hurt and were hospitalized, but later released, police said.

However, on March 23, 2020, Prude was wandering in the middle of the street naked. The officers then pinned him to the ground, one of them keeping a knee on his back and another pressing his face into the pavement for two minutes.

"Spit hoods can cause extreme distress and restricted breathing", Justin Mazzola, the deputy director of research at Amnesty International USA, said in a statement. It was after Prude demanded an officer give over his gun that the "spit hood" was put over his head, to protect officers from COVID-19 droplets. Shortly thereafter, they became aware that he had thrown up, performed CPR, and Prude was taken by ambulance to a nearby hospital.

"OK, stop. I need it".

Despite the fact that Prude was handcuffed and unarmed, the officers held him down for several minutes in the video.

Mr Mazzaeo further defended the officers, saying they were in a hard position trying to help someone who appeared to have a mental illness, and they did not intend to harm Mr Prude.

The goal is to pair mental-health professionals, when available, with police officers on 911 calls.

Police claim that the victim, 18-year-old Deon Kay, was a known street gang member. "He did not deserve that". He was treated like an animal. It is still not complete. "We can not continue to fail Black lives this way".

Governor Andrew Cuomo called the video, which was made public on Wednesday showing the arrest of Daniel Prude in Rochester "deeply disturbing".

Joe Prude, Daniel's brother, said: "I placed a phone call for my brother to get help". Some activists felt suspending the officers was not enough. Police said they were not yet prepared to report on property damage.

Earlier Thursday, Prude's brother, Joe Prude, said all his younger brother wanted that morning was "somebody to grab him up and help him".

"You're trying to kill me", the man said prior to losing consciousness. He's cuffed up already.

Hill reported from Albany. Associated Press writers Michael R. Sisak, Ted Shaffrey and Jennifer Peltz in NY and Don Babwin in Chicago contributed to this report. "Ya'll need to know that".
