New York protests continues after death of African American man
Protests in New York have continued after police officers “spit hood” and suffocated Daniel Prude.
“Spit hood” is a guard police officers use to protect themselves from someone who may be spitting or biting.
Prude, 41, had been brought to hospital in upstate New York after the encounter, but was taken off life support a week later by his family on March 30.
The video evidence has only just been released on Wednesday, causing the protests to continue.
Seven of the police officers involved have been suspended. Rochester Mayor, Lovely Warren said, “I am suspending the officers in question today against the council’s advice”.
“Daniel Prude was failed by our police department, our mental healthcare system, our society and, he was failed by me,” she said.
