New York Attorney General Letitia James announced Tuesday that none of the officers who were at the Rochester scene associated with Daniel Prude's death will face criminal charges for their actions.
"My office presented an extensive case and we sought a different outcome than the one the Grand Jury handed us today," she said from Aenon Missionary Baptist Church.
Prude, of Chicago, died last March a week after his brother called 911 seeking help for him during a mental crisis.
When officers responded to the call, they found Prude naked in the street and put a "spit hood" over his head" upon hearing he may have COVID-19, according to police video made public in September. The officers pressed his head to the ground for two minutes until he stopped breathing. He was taken off life support seven days later and died.
Prude's brother, Joe Prude, spoke out about the case in the fall. Joe Prude said his brother arrived in Rochester on March 22 and he immediately tried to get him psychiatric help.
At first, he took him to the hospital for a medical evaluation for suicidal thoughts, but he was released only hours later. The next day, he had another crisis and it resulted in the 911 call that lead to his death.
"I placed a phone call for my brother to get help. Not for my brother to get lynched," Joe Prude said at a press conference in September. "When I say 'got lynched,' that was a full-fledged on-going murder, cold-blooded."
The news of Prude's death reignited outrage at a time when Americans were already calling for an end to police brutality.
AG James launched an investigation into the incident in April.
The seven officers on scene that day — Mark Vaughn, Troy Talladay, Paul Ricotta, Francisco Santiago, Andrew Specksgoor, Josiah Harris, and Sgt. Mark Magri — were suspended in September.
Then the Rochester Police department's entire command staff, including its chief, resigned.A makeshift memorial is seen, Wednesday, Sept. 2, 2020, in Rochester, N.Y., near the site where Daniel Prude was restrained by police officers. Prude, a Black man who had run naked through the streets of the western New York city, died of asphyxiation after a group of police officers put a hood over his head, then pressed his face into the pavement for two minutes, according to video and records released Wednesday by his family.

Throughout the fall, Insider spoke to mothers around the US who called 911 when their sons were experiencing a mental health crisis, only to end up summoning their loved ones' killer.
In most cases, the families first tried to seek involuntary treatment for the men through the civil-commitment process — in which a person can argue that a loved one needs to be entered into treatment even if they oppose it.
This system, though, usually involves the courts or law enforcement to be involved, which can lead to traumatizing or even fatal encounters.
"The debris and wreckage that leaves behind for the family members who are essentially survivors, who may themselves feel like they had a hand in contributing to the death of a loved one — this survivorship is one of the most under-recognized sources of mental-health disparities in the country," Alexander Tsai, a psychiatrist and researcher at Massachusetts General Hospital, previously told Insider.
This is a breaking story and will be updated.

Camilo Y Ricky montaner They starred in a nasty challenge on TikTok that went viral on social media. The singers are very united in the networks, where they usually publish videos in hilarious situations, but this time they went further.
The duo did a challenge where the author of “Rich Life” had to lick his armpit to his brother-in-law, Ricky. This is how the singer ends up agreeing. In the images you can see that first, Camilo smells under the arm of his wife’s brother, Evaluna, and tells him that “he has a little smell.”
“Well yeah, it could be a little bit,” Ricky answers. This unleashes the laughter of several people in the background and the repulsive gesture of the singer who has to do the maneuver. “She’s sweaty, let her see,” Camilo adds after feeling his brother-in-law’s armpit with his fingers, whom he asks to dry with his shirt before licking his tongue.
“Nerd. It’s part of the pod, ”Ricky answers. A few seconds later and after thinking about it so much, Camilo runs his tongue over his brother-in-law’s armpit: “It’s very salty”, secures and runs with a gesture of displeasure to wash his mouth.
Many users of the network thought “disgusting”The video, meanwhile, others were surprised by the situation. It should be noted that both are very active in their social networks and tend to undergo unexpected challenges of any kind.Watch the video here
