Rochester Mayor: "I know that I must do better as a leader in this community. The buck stops today with me, here, at City Hall. We must as a society, a city, a community face the truth. Institutional and structural racism led to Daniel Prude's death."

Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren ordered the immediate suspension of seven police officers involved in the death of Daniel Prude.

She also rebuked Police Chief La'Ron Singletary for his handling of the case, including a failure to inform her of the full details of the March 23 incident until early August.

The actions were announced at a press conference late Thursday afternoon. The steps came hours after members of City Council sent her a letter calling for stronger actions in response to Prude's death.

"The only way we can confront systemic racism in our city is to face it head-on," Warren said. "There can not be a justice system for white people and a justice system for Black people."

She also accepted the blame for the city's lack of transparency regarding the case.

"I know that I must do better as a leader in this community," Warren said. "The buck stops today with me, here, at City Hall. We must as a society, a city, a community face the truth. Institutional and structural racism led to Daniel Prude's death."
