Prude family:

    By CAROLYN THOMPSON, Associated Press Joe Prude watched in angry disbelief as New York state’s top prosecutor announced there would be no criminal charges against the police officers seen on video pinning his younger brother to the street until he was on the cusp of death. Prude said Wednesday that videos recorded by Rochester Police officers' body cameras after they caught up with Daniel Prude, naked on a frigid night last March, are irrefutable proof of a crime. But attorneys for the seven police officers applauded a grand jury's decision Tuesday not to charge them, and insisted the videos are only evidence of the officers doing their jobs correctly. “Murder, manslaughter, something,” is what Joe Prude said he wanted to hear from Attorney General Letitia James nearly a year after his brother died following the fatal encounter with police. Daniel Prude, who was visiting from Chicago, had irrationally bolted from...

    Attorneys for the cops suspended over the death of Daniel Prude say the officers acted 'flawlessly' during their arrest of the unarmed black man.  Prude suffocated after he was arrested by cops during a psychotic episode in Rochester, New York on March 23.  Bodycam video - which showed a naked Prude being put into a spit hood and pinned to the ground - sparked outrage when it was released to the public last month and resulted in the suspension of seven officers who were at the scene.  But on Thursday, during a press conference held at the Rochester Police Union, lawyers said the officers were simply following protocol.   'There's no question it's a tragic situation for Mr. Prude's family, and there may need to be conversations about training and mental health intervention, but these officers did exactly what they were trained to do and they did it flawlessly,' a lawyer...

    Friday evening, the city of Rochester, New York, exploded in violence, as far-left Black Lives Matter rioters chased customers out of restaurants, broke windows, set bus stations aflame, and climbed on top of houses over the death of a 41-year-old man named Daniel Prude, who is black. Prude died seven days after an interaction with Rochester police officers back in March, at the height of the novel coronavirus pandemic. A statement released Friday from the University of Rochester Medical Center (URMC), which encompasses Strong Memorial Hospital, where Prude was treated, pushed back on the mainstream narrative that Mr. Prude was not adequately cared for, supposedly due to the color of his skin. Prude’s care, URMC said, was “medically appropriate and compassionate,” adding that they are unable to disclose detail about the care due to privacy constraints. The statement noted that the Prude family has been asked to sign off on a HIPPA...
