for Prude’s:

    New York : Brutal arrest, March 23, 2020 Photo: Rochester Police Department / Courtesy Dozens of protesters marched in Rochester, NY last night, just hours after New York Attorney General Letitia James announced that a grand jury had voted not to indict any police officer on charges related to Daniel Prude’s death. . Prude, a 41-year-old black man, was unarmed and having a mental health episode on March 23, when the officers handcuffed him, covered his head and kept him face down on the ground. He was taken to a hospital, declared brain dead and died a week later when life support was withdrawn. The protesters, some with “Black Lives Matter” (BLM) signs, called for justice and chanted Prude’s name, reported CNN. “This is not what we expected, this is not what we wanted, and until there is justice in this system, they will not...
    A grand jury in New York state voted not to indict police officers for the death of Daniel Prude, a Black man who died of asphyxiation while in police custody in March 2020 in the city of Rochester, state Attorney General Letitia James said on Tuesday. Prude’s family obtained body-worn camera footage of Prude’s death that showed him naked in a dark, snowy street. A so-called mesh "spit hood" was placed over his head after he told officers he had contracted the novel coronavirus. The video also shows Prude, apparently in the middle of a mental health crisis, being restrained against the ground by police. The footage was released in September, further fueling ongoing nationwide protests against police violence following other high-profile episodes in 2020 where police killed Black men and women, including the death of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police in May.

    “I am extremely disappointed”, commented the first magistrate of the State of New York, while recalling that the jurors were sovereign in the matter. In American criminal law, the Crown sometimes convenes a grand jury, which, after reviewing the case, must decide whether or not to prosecute and go to trial. “We were awaiting a different decision than the one handed down today by the grand jury,” Letitia James said. But “at the end of the day, we have to respect this decision.” A video of the arrest, which dates back to March 23 in this city in the far north of New York State, was made public in early September. Naked in the street when the police arrived, Daniel Prude was unarmed and was quickly handcuffed, before one of the officers present put a hood over his head to prevent him from spitting on the police because he...
    By Michael Hill and Carolyn Thompson | Associated Press Police officers shown on body camera video holding Daniel Prude down naked and handcuffed on a city street last winter until he stopped breathing will not face criminal charges, according to a grand jury decision announced Tuesday. The 41-year-old Black man’s death last March sparked nightly protests in Rochester, New York, after the video was released nearly six months later, with demonstrators demanding a reckoning for police and city officials. State Attorney General Letitia James, whose office took over the prosecution and impaneled a grand jury, said her office “presented the strongest case possible” and she was “extremely disappointed” by the decision. “The criminal justice system has frustrated efforts to hold law enforcement officers accountable for the unjustified killing of African Americans. And what binds these cases is a tragic loss of life in circumstances in which the death could have...
    A New York grand jury on Tuesday declined to indict the officers involved in the death of Daniel Prude, a black man who died from asphyxiation while in police custody in March 2020. "A grand jury has voted not to indict any police officer on charges related to the death of Daniel Prude," New York Attorney General Letitia James wrote in a Twitter thread Tuesday afternoon. "My office concluded there was sufficient evidence surrounding Mr. Prude’s death to present the case to a grand jury, and we presented the most comprehensive case possible." James said the ruling would "rightfully" devastate Prude's family and communities across the nation, but that "we have to respect this decision."

    All seven Rochester officers involved in the death of Daniel Prude, a 41-year-old Black man who suffocated to death after police pinned him to the ground, have been cleared of wrongdoing, authorities said Tuesday. New York Attorney General Letitia James said that while her office “presented the strongest case possible,” a grand jury decided “not to indict any officers” involved in the March 23, 2020 death. James also released a 204-page report into Prude’s death, which states that he initially complied with authorities during his arrest and was in need of mental medical assistance. “I know that the Prude family, the Rochester community ,and communities across the country will rightly be disappointed by this outcome,” James said, adding that while she is “extreme disappointed” and wanted a different criminal outcome “ultimately we have to respect the decision.” “The system too often allows officers to use deadly force unnecessarily and without...
    Embattled Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren has been indicted on campaign finance charges. The leader of New York State’s third largest city was already under fire for her administration’s handling of the facts surrounding the death of Daniel Prude, who died after being restrained in a spit hood while in police custody. Monroe County DA Sandra Doorley Friday slapped Warren with two campaign finance charges — scheming to defraud in the first degree and an election law violation. The indictment claims she had donors exceed campaign contribution limits, limited to $8,500 per donor, during Lovely’s successful 2017 re-election bid. Warren was running a campaign account and a separate political action committee, Warren for a Strong Rochester PAC, both allegedly aiding her re-election. Twenty eight donors made contributions to both committees, exceeding contribution limits. One of the complainants who blew the whistle on Lovely Warren’s suspicious fundraising at the time was her...
    Lawyers representing the seven Rochester police officers suspended with pay during an investigation into the death of Daniel Prude said Thursday the events leading up to the man’s death were not being portrayed fully and they called for at least two of the embroiled cops to be reinstated. “These officers are being mistreated, we believe, unfairly,” said attorney Michael Schiano, who represents one of the officers involved. “Their lives have been threatened, there are bounties placed on their heads.” Attorneys spoke on behalf of the suspended Rochester Police Department employees on Thursday at the city’s Police Locust Club, to explain “exactly what happened that day from the officers’ point of view,” and where they defended the alleged actions or inaction of the officers, in part, by pointing to the police department’s training protocol.

    Protesters have taken to the streets of Rochester, New York, for the eighth consecutive night to demand justice for Daniel Prude, a mentally ill black man who died during arrest by police officers in the city.  Prude, 41, was arrested in the early morning hours of March 23 running naked through the streets of Rochester.  Handcuffed and sitting on the flood without any clothes on, he had a 'spit hood' placed over his head, and when officers tried to move him, kneeling on his back, he fell unconscious.
