Protesters marched on the streets of Rochester, New York, on September 7 for the sixth straight night of demonstrations in response to the death of Daniel Prude.
Prude’s death in Rochester in late March came to national attention upon the release of police bodycam videos in September.
The footage from March 23 showed how officers, responding to a mental health wellness call made by Prude’s brother, handcuffed the naked man, placed him in a “spit hood” and pressed his head to the pavement.
A week later, on March 30, Prude was taken off life support and declared dead the same day. New York State Attorney General Letitia James said that a grand jury would be convened to investigate Prude’s death.
This footage shows protesters marching in Rochester while chanting Prude’s name. Protesters later gathered outside the Public Safety Building, local media reported, before police declared the rally an unlawful assembly. Credit: scottiexposure via Storyful
