How Cops Tried to Turn Daniel Prude From a Victim Into a Suspect

How Cops Tried to Turn Daniel Prude From a Victim Into a Suspect

vice - 1 week ago

New internal city documents show that in the months after the death of Daniel Prude, Rochester police and city officials did everything in their power to paint the distressed black man as a suspect and suppress evidence in the fatal arrest in hopes of preventing an uproar similar to protests after the police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis.

The documents obtained by the New York Times contain a series of damning emails and altered police reports that show how Rochester Police attempted to change the narrative around Prude’s arrest. One police report features an edit in red to “make him a suspect” instead of an “individual” as originally listed in the document.

The department also tried to downplay the cops’ role in Prude’s death during the fatal arrest on March 23, despite video that showed officers putting a hood over his head and slamming his head into the pavement while forcefully restraining him. 

An email discussion between Deputy Police Chief Mark Simmons and Rochester Police Chief La’Ron Singletary from early June shows that the department tried to suppress evidence of the misconduct to prevent community unrest.

“We certainly do not want people to misinterpret the officers’ actions and conflate this incident with any recent killings of unarmed Black men by law enforcement nationally,” the email to Singletary said, according to the New York Times. “That would simply be a false narrative, and could create animosity and potentially violent blowback in this community as a result.”

“I totally agree,” Singletary wrote back minutes later.

The document also shows that officers downplayed how rough officers were with the distraught man during the arrest. While bodycam footage shows that officers pushed Prude’s head against the concrete for more than a minute even as he asked them to ease up, police reports say officers used the commonly used restraining technique to subdue him until he threw up and lost consciousness. The document also lists the cause of death as a drug overdose.

In a summary of the incident written by Singletary in early April, shortly after the county medical examiner ruled Prude’s death as a homicide by drugs and asphyxia, internal discussions in the document show that officers attempted to keep Mayor Lovely Warren in the dark about how officers may have triggered the man’s cardiac arrest.

Finally, documents show that top cops and city lawyers repeatedly tried to thwart Prude’s family attorney from obtaining bodycam footage of the arrest, citing conflicts with an on-going investigation by the state, Prude’s posthumous right to medical confidentiality, nudity and government bureaucracy.

Video of Prude’s death has stirred protests in the mostly Black and Hispanic city of Rochester since its release Sept. 2, more than four months after police completed their internal investigation, concluding that the officers conducted themselves appropriately during the arrest. Earlier this month, Mayor Warren suspended seven of the cops involved in Prude’s death, going against the Rochester city council’s recommendation of placing the officers on administrative leave. On Monday, she’d fire Cheif Singletary citing the internal city documents.

“Mr. Daniel Prude was failed by our police, our mental health care system, our society, and by me,” Warren said last week. “And for that I apologize to the Prude family and all of our community.”

On Tuesday, the Rochester city council unanimously passed a series bills approving and funding an independent investigation of Prude’s arrest.
