New York Attorney General Convening Grand Jury in Daniel Prude Case
The principal New York attorney removes the Daniel Prude case from the jurisdiction of the local jurisdiction and places the decision to bring charges directly to the people.
Attorney General Letitia James has said she will soon summon a grand jury to review the case and see if a crime was committed by the Rochester cops … who put a sack on Prude’s head earlier this year , which ultimately led to his death.
As we reported … Prude’s brother called 9-1-1 for help after Daniel acted erratically. He was pulled over in the snowy streets, completely naked. While complying with the officers’ requests at first, Prude eventually tried to stand … and was pinned to the ground.
With a knee behind her back and a hood over her head, Prude eventually passed out. He was placed on life support and died 7 days later. His death was characterized as a homicide by complications of asphyxiation during the restraint, as well as other contributing factors.
Empaneling a grand jury basically takes the power to charge anyone outside the prosecutor’s jurisdiction and submits it to the grand jurors, who will take a peek and be presented with an argument somehow by the office. primary investigation – in this case, the New York Attorney General.
Safe to say, if the GA makes this decision … it’s because it wants impartial people to judge what happened and then determine whether charges should be laid. So far, seven of the cops have been suspended with pay, but no charges have been filed.
Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren denounced Prude’s death last week … claiming his ignorance of the true nature of his detention. Not everyone is satisfied with this explanation, especially since Prude passed away 6 months ago.
After body camera footage was released fully depicting Prude’s meeting, protests erupted across the Big Apple once again. Obviously, they are now trying to act quickly on this point.
