Cops Put Hood on Man’s Head, Smash His Face Into the Street Until He Stops Breathing and Dies

When Daniel Prude died on March 30 of this year, not one mainstream media network covered it and it had been but a blip in local media.

It wasn't until his family fought for months to seek out out what happened that Prude's case is finally seeing the sunshine of day.

In the midst of a chemically-induced psychological state crisis, Prude was compliant and sat on the bottom when asked by police and placed into handcuffs.

Moments later, he'd have a hood placed on his head while cops shoved his face into the pavement until he stopped breathing and eventually died.

Seven days after Prude stopped breathing, he would die on life support.

Prude's brother called police that evening to urge help for his brother.

"I placed a call for my brother to urge help. Not for my brother to urge lynched," Prude's brother, Joe Prude, said at a press conference.

"How did you see him and indirectly say, 'The man is defenseless, buck naked on the bottom. He's cuffed up already. Come on.' what percentage more brothers gotta die for society to know that this must stop?".

Joe Prude was much more qualified to urge his brother in check than the officers and he should haven't called them do roll in the hay for him.

Sadly, this sort of scenario plays out sort of a broken record as relations believe cops to assist their loved ones and "Help" usually times last on the list.

As the newly released video shows, Prude is initially compliant with police and sits down on the bottom, allowing officers to handcuff him.

He slowly becomes agitated after officers put a hood on his head. it's unclear if Prude attempted to spit on officers before having the hood placed over his head. However, this incident happened as COVID-19 deaths began mounting within the state, so officers said they placed the hood on his head for his or her protection.

"Give me your gun, I need it," Prude shouts after officers put the hood on him.

For no apparent reason, aside from dispensing punishment, officers then slam the man's head into the concrete.

One officer then holds his head down against the pavement with both hands, saying "Calm down" and "Stop spitting." Another officer places a knee on his back.

"Trying to kill me!" Prude says, his voice becoming muffled and anguished under the hood.

"OK, stop. I need it. I need it," Prude begs, his voice growing softer because the air is squeezed from his body.

For over two minutes police held Prude's face to the bottom with a hood over it until eventually fluid started running from his mouth and he stopped breathing.

"My man. You puking?" a politician says.

Officers then removed the hood and therefore the handcuffs but it had been too late, Prude would never start breathing on his own again and would die days later during a hospital.

According to the AP, spit hoods are scrutinized as an element within the deaths of several prisoners within the U.S. and other countries in recent years.

According to the report, a doctor concluded that Prude's death was a homicide caused by "Complications of asphyxia within the setting of physical restraint." The report lists excited delirium and acute intoxication by phencyclidine, or PCP, as contributing factors.

Prude's death is currently under investigation by Attorney General Letitia James' office, who took over the investigation from the Rochester local department.

Activists are now demanding charges be brought against the officers involved.

"The police have shown us over and once again that they're not equipped to handle individuals with psychological state concerns. These officers are trained to kill and not deescalate. These officers are trained to ridicule, rather than supporting Mr. Daniel Prude," Ashley Gantt of Free the People ROC said at the press conference with Prude's family.

Sadly, she is true which is strictly what we see within the video below.

"He was just a bright, loving person, just family-oriented, always there for us once we needed him," Prude's aunt Letoria Moore said, and "Never hurt or harmed anybody."
