Police Chief La’Ron Singletary, and the entire command staff of the Rochester Police Department, have resigned. Now angry BLM protesters are turning their wrath on Rochester’s top Democrat, Mayor Lovely Warren.
BuzzFeed’s Paul McLeod reports that the Mayor has attempted to deflect blame, and that protesters are calling for the defunding and disbandment of the city’s police force. He writes:
The mayor appeared to deflect blame onto Singletary last week by saying she was not told the details of Prude’s death until August. But she also praised Singletary as a dedicated public servant.
Protesters clashed with police in the streets of Rochester when nightly marches started last week. In recent days, the events have been reported as peaceful, in part due to a wall of elders coming out to form a human barrier between protesters and police. Despite this, President Trump tweeted Monday about Rochester having a bad night.
The seven officers involved in Prude’s death have been suspended without pay, and the New York Attorney General’s Office has opened an investigation. But protesters have called for the officers to be fired and want police to be barred from responding to mental health calls. They also want the Rochester Police Department to be defunded and disbanded.
