The Rochester Police Department has announced that only one of seven suspended officers will face departmental charges for the death of Daniel Prude.

In response, the New York Civil Liberties Union issued the following statement from Genesee Valley regional director Iman Abid:

“The Rochester Police Department took Daniel Prude’s life while he was in crisis. He deserved services and supports, not for his life to end. The City of Rochester subsequently withheld body camera footage and the RPD subjected residents peacefully protesting Prude’s murder and calling for systemic change to abuse.

“Now, eighteen months later, the RPD will hold one of seven officers accountable for taking the life of an individual in crisis. This is impunity, not justice.

“We will not stop fighting for justice in Daniel Prude’s memory to protect others from being killed by police because they experience a mental health crisis.”
