MAYOR SUSPENDS OFFICERS IN ‘SPIT HOOD’ DEATH

Seven US police officers have been suspended over the death of a black man who suffocated after being restrained.

Daniel Prude, who had mental health issues, died after being put in a “spit hood,” which is meant to protect officers from detainees’ saliva.

Mr. Prude died in March, but his death has only just been reported.

The 41-year-old died two months before George Floyd’s killing, which sparked national and international protests against racism and police brutality. His arrest also bore similarities to Mr. Floyd’s, as both were pinned to the ground by officers.

Announcing the suspension, Rochester’s mayor, Lovely Warren, said systemic racism led to the death.
