  1. That was not how you treat a person with mental illness I’ve never seen more harrowing video I have seen

    • So strung out on PCP he scrambled his own brain long ago.

    • @Stevan R. This is what is meant by defunding the police. There are just times when mental health workers might be able to stop the police from killing someone…or letting someone die.

    • @David Hale Very few people are talking about abolishing the police. defunding is a stupid choice of expressing the idea that mental health officials should be brought in to handle a lot of the things police are stuck with and don’t really have the training to handle. Of course the police need to be there as well, just in case. So, actually more money and not less needs to go into law enforcement so we can get to a point of protect and serve.

    • @Julian Marsh yes but realistically speaking when it’s all happening at once you cannot expect police just to sit there and wait around and if they sent out mental health people every time with police officers to a call that could put them at risk also

    • Are you kidding me? A spit hood and then they kept him from bashing his head into the ground. They did nothing wrong

    The takeaway from this is that police overreach isn’t merely a white/black issue. Not by a long shot. I’m white, and I drove a cab for thirty years, and I dealt with a number of cops who were clearly psycho.

  3. Oh good finally seeing self defundment by police force stepping down. Lock them up for not punishing bad police.

  4. These people should not be allowed to “step down” before being thoroughly investigated and held accountable, if found to be complicit, in corruptly covering up what appears to be the murder of an innocent man.

    Now, perhaps, we can get changes!

  6. You’re still going to be held accountable. Period.

    Perfect that’s what’s needed revamp the whole police force

  8. Cameras. The number one cop-killer.

  9. There needs to be investigations of sociopathic prosecutors as well

  10. Best question: “Would they have done anything if there was no public pressure?” Answer: no. Speaks volumes.

    • @Don Williams Prude died of asphyxiation after a group of police officers put a hood on his head then pressed his face into the pavement for two minutes. As usual, it was not investigated until after the video came to light

    • @Ali B Prude had been arrested 37 different times by police. He had eight convictions. (Where have i heard that part of story?)
      His brother called cops on him recently high on pcp acting out. Cops got him help at hospital. Prude went home. Brother again had to call cops on Prude. Again high on pcp acting out.
      Hes buck naked in dead of winter with spit bag on head for spitting and resisting arrest, acting beligerant.
      7 days later he died
      Cops did what??

    • @MarSec C Yup. Got it. Prude was a drug addict and had serious mental health issues. He was high and in mental crises and was acting out. He needed medical attention. If the cops needed to restrain him, I get it. If they needed to use a spit hood, because, after all there is a deadly virus, I get it. The issue is the fact that he was restrained on the ground with a hood on his head and they held his face to the ground until he was unconscious. He was actually brain dead and he was in the hospital on life support until he died. The issue is that they laughed and joked around while they did it. The issue is that the autopsy and medical report determined that he died of asphyxiation due to restraint (yes, I know, drugs contributed to that). The issue is that there was no investigation and they lied to the family about the incident. There was no questions asked until the video came out.

    • @Ali B ” If the cops needed to restrain him, I get it. If they needed to use a spit hood, because, after all there is a deadly virus, I get it. The issue is the fact that he was restrained on the ground with a hood on his head and they held his face to the ground until he was unconscious.”
      So…If I read that correctly, by saying “I get it” You obviously get it.
      That video has a criminal defense lawyer break the whole thing down, that’s if you care about “Black lives” I suppose. But I doubt that’s true when you ignore the hundreds of black on black deaths and domestic violence that has emerged from the pointless riots and burning down of the USA. Just keep focusing on what the media feeds you, it suits you.

    New York Attorney General knows her job👍🏻

  12. Retirement?! Protecting their $100’s thousands in pension money!

    • @Miso Mama 0:15 you should listen to facts, rather than pushing your owners B.S. stories.

    • Miso Mama They stepped down because they can receive retirement benefits subsidized by public tax dollars, while they do not do their job.

    • @Miso Mama Not everyone “stepping down” or leaving their positions are
      doing so in an untoward, improper or unfavorable manner. “Choking on it” is a very harsh and cruel way to state it for a retirement or, for that matter, a resignation. Your comment shows your stupidity …🤦‍♂️🤮😣 😡

    • Take their money.

    • @Miso Mama Cry baby

  13. Good! They all probably walked away with astronomical retirement packages.

  14. *Step Down willingly? —> 1. They all avoid an Inquiry / 2. They protect their Retirement Pension. SMH.*

    • What would you have done differently? Let the guy spit in your face during COVID? Let him run around naked, at night, with a mental illness? Please describe the proper procedure to us, since you must know given your comment.

    • @Rich Henry its not because you blue soule… anim… cant do the job that no one can !!! just sit on his back instead of his head sociteties tra……

  15. I was born a poor black child - Navin Johnson | September 9, 2020 at 12:44 PM | Reply

    Good for them. Enjoy your retirement!

  16. Sometimes, when we’re trying to help somebody, they just fall over and die. Sometimes they have bullets in them, sometimes they just stop breathing. It’s not my fault just because I sat on his chest, or stepped on his head as hard as I could. It’s not illegal to stand somewhere, like on somebody’s head, or throat, is it? cop-logic 2020

    • L. A. logic…..If a black guy dies while on PCP it CAN’t be his fault even if the Coroner rules it an OD case.

    • @John Hiller Where do you get that faulty logic from? I said nothing of the sort. Don’t be dumb, sparky. Let’s say you don’t like forest fires. Does that mean you also won’t let people heat up their food?

  17. Good. Most of them got their jobs because of affirmative action. They never should have been there anyway.

  18. “We are trained Marxists” — Patrisse Cullors BLM Cofounder

    Slick Willie Clinton pardoned …
    Susan Rosenberg — BLM Board Member — Convicted terrorist; Marxist; Weather Underground alumnus

  19. Hes a good cop prude was on pcp been arrested 37 times mavor lovely thew cops under bus like mayor bug eyes in chicago
