Another black man has been killed by your Rochester Police Department. I’ve lost track of how many have died just this year alone. You claim that you want to move forward and progress in the right direction yet my brothers and sisters are being killed everyday by the people who swore to serve and protect. How are you protecting someone when nearly every time you are called someone ends up dead. It’s as straight forward as that. I can’t even express how tired and angry I am seeing things like this everyday. He was obviously in distress anyone with a brain can see that. He wasn’t in his obvious state of mind apparently that’s enough reason for the cops to kill right. Do you realize the level of wrong that logic has? Not only that but if EMT’s are able to deescalate situations like these without need of lethal force yet your “trained officers” aren’t there’s a big problem there. You spend more time teaching officers how to fire their firearms than to just do the obvious tactic of communicating with the suspect. He didn’t even commit a crime. They just assumed that he was guilty. It isn’t the place of an officer to be the judge nor executioner of anyone that they pursue. If a fast food employee can deescalate a situation without someone being killed then it’s obvious what the true problem really is. #JusticeforDanielPrude
