Rochester Mayor Suspends Officers Involved In Death In Custody Of Daniel Prude Of Chicago
“I am suspending the officers in question today against council’s advice, and I urge the attorney general to complete her investigation,” Warren said, as quoted by CBS affiliate WROC-TV in Rochester. “I understand that the union may sue the city for this, they shall feel free to do so — I have been sued before.”
Local civil rights groups gathered on the steps of City Hall in Rochester earlier Thursday to demand the immediate firing and prosecution of the officers who are involved, WROC reported. The Rochester City Council also formally requested that the officers by placed on administrative leave until an investigation by the New York state Attorney General’s office is finished, WROC reported.
