Rochester Riots over death of a black man restrained by police

8
2117

Two months ago, police in Rochester arrested a man named Daniel Prude who was running naked in the streets. His brother called the police to ask for help. The police put a spit sack over his head to keep him from spitting at them [he wouldn’t stop spitting despite requests by police and ranted he had coronavirus]. At one point, they held him down for two minutes. The man died a week later.

Newspapers claim he died from asphyxiation since that’s all they cared to read in the autopsy report. However, he had pneumonia, acute myocarditis, severe respiratory acidosis, brain injury, and acute PCP intoxication, along with a history of restraint for combative behavior.

The Monroe County medical examiner ruled Mr. Prude’s death a homicide caused by “complications of asphyxia in the setting of physical restraint,” according to an autopsy report.

“Excited delirium” and acute intoxication by phencyclidine, or the drug PCP, were contributing factors, the report said.

EXCEPT, EXCITED DELIRIUM IS NOT AN ACCEPTED DIAGNOSIS

Excited delirium, according to the National Center for Biotechnology Information, “is characterized by agitation, aggression, acute distress and sudden death, often in the pre-hospital care setting,” typically associated with drug use and sometimes with the death of the “person in the custody of law enforcement.”

Excited delirium is not an accepted diagnosis or syndrome by the American Medical Association, the American Psychiatric Association or the World Health Organization, nor is it listed in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, according to Harvard University’s Civil Liberties Law Review.

In other words, he likely died from acute intoxication from PCP, and he very serious health problems.

THEY FOLLOWED PROTOCOL

The police followed protocol step-by-step, but the left doesn’t want spit sacks used (regardless of the disease the suspect could have) and they don’t want restraint.

Agitators, aka activists, say it was cold-blooded murder.

“On March 23, 2020, the Rochester Police Department executed a Black man named Daniel Prude,” said local activist Stanley Martin. “Mr. Prude was naked, defenseless, unarmed, and experiencing a mental health crisis.”

Now, the majority-white liberal Black Lives Matter movement, begun and funded by George Soros, is raising hell in Rochester.

The BLM rioters say you must call them protesters, but they do appear to be terrorist groups of rioters.

The BLM/Antifa terrorists simply shop for an excuse to riot. Period.

It was a self-induced mental health crisis, called using PCP.

I wish I could live in Mayberry too but this is the real world. And what else but total lawlessness and anarchy can one expect from the George Soros funded BLM and the irrational useful idiots they are paid to agitate?

With what rioters were saying I assumed he died at the scene. A week later??

Given these past months I didn’t even care, no matter the circumstances, if BLM activists are involved. It’s a cue there is no truth in the matter. This is what the mobs are accomplishing. If people cannot act as civilized human beings they will lose all sympathy.

Amazing. A homicide caused by “complications of asphyxia in the setting of physical restraint,” according to an autopsy report. Was that “setting of physical restraint” the one imposed while under medical care because he was a raving, out of control patient or the one a full week earlier while the police collected him in order to deliver him into the caring hands of the medical community?

Has anyone in the legacy media even asked?

An important omission in this report is that while Daniel Prude was resuscitated at the scene by the EMTs, at least to the point of getting his heart beating, he never regained consciousness. He was taken off life support a week later.

In light of this it’s clear that the autopsy report refers to the police restraint, that the medical crisis began during that restraint and that it may have been at least a contributing factor.

We hear plenty of criticism about how police deal with mentally ill people in crisis. What we don’t hear much of is, what would the correct course of action be with someone so out of control? What are the good alternatives? What best practices of mental health professionals from hospital settings could be adapted to the streets?

Have you ever been in an ER when someone hopped up on PCP is brought in? (The ones lucky enough to survive the early moments of their OD) They have to be restrained upper and lower arms, upper and lower legs, waist, chest, and head. They spit, bite, scratch, and I had ones flip the gurney on its side while fully restrained. The most dangerous time is trying to tranquilize them with a sedative. I’ve seen needles broken off in thighs and shoulders. Anyone close to them is in danger. They are immensely strong and seem to feel no pain. There is no way anything a mental health professional would do other than shoot them with a tranc gun that would have changed the out come.
