NY state probes Black man’s death after police use ‘spit hood’ restraint

In this image taken from police body camera video provided by Roth and Roth LLP, Rochester police officers hold down Daniel Prude on March 23, 2020, in Rochester, N.Y. "That before we make a decision, before we opine about what happened or didn't happen in Rochester, we allow the Attorney General and her staff to complete their investigation and share their findings", said Akshar.

The footage was obtained by Prude's family through a public records request.

The news of yet another police killing of an African American triggered fresh outrage, three months after protests ignited nationwide over George Floyd, who was choked to death during an arrest while handcuffed.

"For the sake of Mr. Prude's family and the greater Rochester community I am calling for this case to be concluded as expeditiously as possible".

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed a bill into law in June that designates the attorney general as an independent prosecutor for matters relating to the deaths of unarmed civilians caused by law enforcement.

'To me, it looks like they were watching the training in front of them and doing step by step what the training says to do, ' he said on Friday. "Come on.' How many more brothers gotta die for society to understand that this needs to stop?"

That was the first day she saw the video of Prude's interactions with police.

Officers then pressed Mr Prude's head into the pavement for two minutes. Minutes later, the video showed Prude being loaded into an ambulance on a stretcher.

An emergency medical technician tried to resuscitate him before he was taken to hospital. The autopsy also revealed that Prude had PCP in his system.

"He was treated inhumanely and without dignity", community organizer Ashley Gantt said.

An officer exits his patrol vehicle, approaches Prude while asking him six times to get on the ground as the officer points a Taser at him.

The 41-year-old's death came two months before George Floyd's killing, which sparked national and global protests against racism and police brutality.

'Experiencing and ultimately dying from the drug overdose in police custody, as I was told by the chief, is entirely different than what I ultimately witnessed, on the video, ' the mayor said. They apprehended him and placed him in a spit hood because he had reportedly told them that he had contracted coronavirus.

But they've become the subject of several lawsuits in recent years, as concerns mushroom over their safety.

There's a sad, nearly inevitable cycle about how many of these deaths of unarmed Black men happen in the places with the worst police departments-who then make everything worse by responding poorly and aggressively to the ensuing protests.

The Mayor of Rochester in the USA state of NY has suspended seven police officers and promised to overhaul the city's justice system after a black man died following an encounter with police. "They shall feel free to do so".

And in Washington police on Wednesday fatally shot an 18-year-old black man after responding to reports of a man with a gun. The chief of police in Rochester says there is no cover up whatsoever. This police body cam footage was just released.

Joe Prude, the brother of Daniel Prude, appeared on Cuomo Prime Time Thursday night where he spoke about his brother's death, and corrected a misconception.
