Killing of Daniel Prude:In the streets our hands are lifting

On March 23, 2020, Daniel Prude was fatally injured after being physically restrained by Rochester, New York, police officers. Prude had been suffering from a mental health episode and was running naked in the city’s streets. The officers put a spit hood over his head after he began spitting.They held him face down on the pavement for two minutes and fifteen seconds, and he stopped breathing. Prude received CPR on the scene and later died of complications from asphyxia after being taken off life support. The autopsy report ruled Prude’s death a homicide and also included the contributing factors to his death as “excited delirium and acute intoxication by phencyclidine, or PCP.” The killing first received attention in September 2020 when the police body camera video and written reports were released along with the autopsy report. Following the report’s release, protesters demonstrated outside the Rochester police headquarters.收起
