Daniel Prude was murdered by the Rochester Police Department on March 23.

Daniel was naked and unarmed when seven police officers encountered him on Jefferson Avenue.  He was experiencing a mental health crisis.  His brother had called the police for help.

When the officers instructed Daniel to sit on the ground, he complied with their direction.  When they moved to handcuff him, he did not resist. 

The officers then placed a hood over Daniel's head, tackled him to the ground, and pressed his face into the pavement until he vomited, lost consciousness, and his heart stopped. 

Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren was informed about these events the day they happened.  She was informed when Daniel was taken off life support a week later.  In her own telling, Mayor Warren viewed the videos of Daniel's murder on August 4.

Despite this knowledge, Mayor Warren did not inform the community that members of the Rochester Police Department had murdered a man who was naked, defenseless, restrained, and alone.  We only learned about this execution on September 2, when Daniel's family released the video in coordination with their attorneys and local activists.

Despite this knowledge, Mayor Warren did not remove these officers from their patrol or suspend them from the police force.  She allowed them to remain at large in our communities, each carrying a badge and gun.

Mayor Warren and her administration covered up the police murder of Daniel Prude and deeply endangered our community. 

We demand that she resign.
