WASHINGTON (Sputnik) - New York Attorney General Letitia James said a grand jury has decided not to indict the Rochester police officers with charges related to the death of Daniel Prude , an African-American man who died while in police custody last year.

Prude’s arrest – which was captured on police body cameras – sparked outrage across the United States, which saw widespread protests last year demanding racial justice and an end to systemic police violence against Black people.

“Daniel Prude was in the throes of a mental health crisis and what he needed was compassion, care, and help from trained professionals. Tragically, he received none of those things,” New York Attorney General Letitia James said in a statement on Tuesday.

“We concluded that there was sufficient evidence surrounding Mr Prude’s death to warrant presenting the case to a grand jury, and we presented the most comprehensive case possible,” James said.

“While I know that the Prude family, the Rochester community, and communities across the country will rightfully be devastated and disappointed, we have to respect this decision.”

Australia's death bowling being tested by Kiwis

  Australia's death bowling being tested by Kiwis Daniel Sams is cannon fodder at the death, while Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc and Kane Richardson remain Australia’s best options in these dying overs in T20s. That’s what was revealed when I painstakingly calculated using ball-by-ball data the performance of every Australian who’s bowled at least four times at the death in international T20s over the past two years. An inability to close out innings with the ball has hurt Australia badly in three of their past four T20s. In their most recent match Australia bled 56 runs from the final five overs as New Zealand charged to a giant total.

Mr. Prude ’ s family has accused the police of covering up his death to protect the officers involved. On Monday, Mayor Lovely Warren released an internal report documenting how the police repeatedly characterized the death as a drug overdose in communications with the city. But the former detective, who spoke on the condition that his name be withheld because he said it would be improper to speak about another officer’s practices, said the move did not appear dangerous. “It would not impede your breathing in any way,” he said.

Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren also said the grand jury decision “is hard for many of us to understand”, but called on the community to “work towards changing policies and procedures to correct the inequities in the system”, according to a statement shared by local media.

Seven police officers who were involved in Prude’s arrest were suspended in September.

Police body camera footage showing Prude lying on the ground naked, handcuffed and surrounded by police officers, was released after his family obtained it through a freedom of information request.

His family said the father of five had been struggling with mental health issues when the family called the police for help after he ran into the street and took off his clothes.

The video showed officers who arrived at the scene putting a hood over his head and telling him to “stop spitting”. Prude’s face was pressed into the ground with the hood on.

The mayor and police chief of Rochester, New York, put up a united front on Sunday, saying they have no intention of resigning amid protests over the death of Daniel Prude in police custody. Speaking at a press conference, Mayor Lovely Warren and Police Chief La'Ron Singletary reaffirmed their intention to remain in charge and help reform the city. "For everything that we 've seen this year, it is clear to me that there is more work to be done, and I am committed to doing what' s necessary," Warren said.

His voice became muffled and minutes later he was silent. Prude died seven days later, on March 30, after he was taken off life support.

A medical examiner concluded that Prude’s death was a homicide caused by “complications of asphyxia in the setting of physical restraint”.

The release of the video images raised questions of a possible cover-up and turned Rochester into a flashpoint in a summer of protests over racial injustice and policing in the US that were first sparked by George Floyd’s death in Minneapolis police custody on May 25.

Warren, the mayor, fired Police Chief La’Ron Singletary and suspended two city officials over the incident.

Local civil rights groups had called for the officers involved to be fired and prosecuted, however. In September, they held several consecutive nights of protests to demand justice and accountability for Prude’s death.

Rochester police have said they are conducting internal and criminal investigations.

Warren said the city’s new police chief is expected to announce orders and procedures to implement policing reforms soon.

“The current laws on deadly force have created a system that utterly and abjectly failed Mr Prude and so many others before him,” said James, the attorney general. “Serious reform is needed, not only at the Rochester Police Department, but to our criminal justice system as a whole.”
