Rochester, N.Y., Mayor Suspends Officers Over Asphyxiation Death Of Daniel Prude

After the video’s release, Warren immediately suspended seven officers with pay. As NPR’s Liz Baker has reported, many protesters say that action doesn’t go far enough.

As NPR’s Brian Mann reported from Rochester, demonstrators there have been protesting what they see as a cover-up by police, who first said Prude had died from a drug overdose.

The protests in Rochester have been mostly peaceful, Mann reports, although police have fired pepper balls at protesters.
