NY Grand Jury declines to charge Rochester cops in the death of Daniel Prude; protests errupt

A New York grand jury declined to issue any charges against Rochester police officers for their role in the death of Daniel Prude, a Black man who died days after being restrained by police in March 2020.

NY AG Letitia James said in a press conference that her department presented a solid case against the officers but “acknowledged that many would be ‘disappointed from this outcome.'” She also “called for reform of the Rochester Police Department and said that Prude, 41, was “‘in the throes of a mental health crisis’ and ‘literally crying out for help’ when officers restrained him while he lay naked in a street.”
