Daniel Prude's family holds news conference | USA TODAY 1

 

A 41-year-old Black man died in March after being forcibly restrained by police officers.

Daniel Prude, who suffered from acute mental health problems, was handcuffed naked by officers in the early morning hours of Monday, March 23. He was detained during an 11-minute confrontation involving six police officers and two emergency medical technicians.

Force was applied for several minutes to Prude's head and back as he lay on the pavement. He lost consciousness after officers cut off his breathing and was transported to a hospital, where he died a week later.

      @Raina Fortini There’s a new invention called punctuation. It’s free, along with another marvel of the modern age: the paragraph.

    The system of white supremacy

  8. One name: Cannon Hinnant…. sick of the double standard

    • @Goahehriahvwvehdba Its was fake $20 Dollar bill, man STFU. Robbery is still not a death sentence, whites get arrested alive, for way more!?

      Origins686720 Its funny how you think I said George floyed deserved it? You attacked me for correcting someone who got the facts wrong about George Floyd? I never gave my opinion on it but you wanna sit here and attack me for something I didn’t say. Sit down

    • @Goahehriahvwvehdba Ahh stop hiding, and be specific then, cowardice, another characteristic of the racist.

      Racist definition: *a person who shows or feels discrimination or prejudice against people of other races, or who believes that a particular race is superior to another.*

      Me: Corrects someone on a case and gets called racist by someone els. Fix your logic please

    • @Goahehriahvwvehdba Your support of a historic Police Force Worldly renowned and historicly proven to be racist says different. Also your denial of their killing of George Floyd, is another indicator, of someone who believes blacks are inferior or classicaly criminal, so can be snuffed out as if they don’t matter, another indicator of a supremacy you consider your self to be over this now dead subject. The very definition of a RACIST.

  9. How did he die of asphyxiation 7 days later? Obvs the media won’t say it’s called a spit hood and they put it on him because he told them he had covid and he wouldn’t stop spitting. He also had pcp in his system. The media left that part out

    seriously ? we are going to whine about a man that overdosed ? really ? this is how pathetic it’s become now? This happened nearly 6 months ago , can anyone else see the money grab here?

    All the cops had to do was give him what he axed for: their gun and a plane ticket out of town. Geez. How hard is THAT?

  12. Bla bla bla 💩💩

    That’s called a spit hood! Its used to keep people from spitting on you! If you watched the whole video, you’ll know he was butt naked out in the street while its snowing, spitting on the officers right around the time covid became a problem, high on pcp and resisting arrest! The officers did nothing wrong! In fact it was his brother that called them! Stop trying to use this incident to bring more racial division during this election term! We know it’s all a part of mainstream media’s narrative! On another note, I will be praying for the family.

  14. Whoever this girl is she’s being deceptive , her emotions don’t seem genuine either. This is most likely another “psy-op” like George Floyd and all the others. Mind manipulation for the masses.

    He was abusive, resisting arrest, was spitting at the cops, told the cops that he had coronavirus, they put a spit hood on him, he was high on pcp.
