Rochester, NY is the latest hub of antia/ BLM rioting as obnoxious swarms of antifa and BLM activists disturbed the peace, climbed on people’s homes, vandalized businesses, assaulted people, including police officers, committed arson, and generally engaged in free-form lawlessness.

Back in March, a black man, Daniel Prude, was reportedly on PCP and running around naked in the streets, and as police attempted to control him with a “spit mask” and hold, he stopped breathing.  He was revived but died seven days later after be taken off of life support.

The rioting hordes learned of the tragic incident on Wednesday when the video was released, and although Rochester mayor Lovely Warren (D) announced the suspension of the officers involved, the mobs took to the streets to assault, harass, annoy, and frighten innocent people, apparently intending to win them over.

Watch the report:

Fox News reports:

Protesters marched in Rochester, N.Y., on Thursday night, as many appeared unswayed by the city’s mayor’s recent decision to suspend seven police officers involved in the suffocation death of Daniel Prude.

Prude, 41, a Black man, died when he was taken off life support March 30. Just seven days earlier, a “spit hood” was put over his head during an encounter with Rochester police to prevent him from spitting — after he ran naked in the street. He was held down by police for roughly two minutes until he stopped breathing.

A medical examiner ruled his death as “complications of asphyxia in the setting of physical restraint.” Delirium and acute intoxication by phencyclidine, or PCP, were listed as contributing factors.

The rioting continued Friday night, as well, because suspending the officers while the incident is investigated is not “justice.” Or something.

The New York Post reports:

Two Rochester cops were injured and eight people arrested early Friday after a protest by over 200 demonstrators demanding justice for Daniel Prude — who suffocated while in police custody — descended into chaos, including arson, vandalism and looting, according to a report.

The eight protesters — men and women ranging in age from 24 to 60 — were charged with disorderly conduct, a violation, police Capt. Michael Callari said, according to the Democrat and Chronicle.

Two of them also were charged with resisting arrest, a misdemeanor, and one was charged with harassment, he added.

The large crowd descended on the Public Safety Building, where some of the people pelted police officers with rocks and bottles, the news outlet reported. The injured cops were treated at a local hospital and released.

Of course, at least one Democrat appeaser on the city council complained that police didn’t engage in “respectful deescalation.”

The New York Post continues:

The police action drew criticism from at least one city council member as “unnecessarily aggressive,” according to the Democrat and Chronicle.

“It’s clear that City Council’s request for a respectful, de-escalated interaction with protesters went unheeded,” Mitch Gruber said in a text message to a reporter.

“RPD initiated unnecessarily aggressive behavior toward peaceful protesters,” he added. “By morning I expect to hear from the mayor and chief as to why our requests weren’t met and how they will appropriately address continued, sustained peaceful protest.”

The city council asked Warren in a letter Thursday that police “meet these protests with respect and to de-escalate tension. We do not need any militaristic outfitting and use of pepper balls at this incredibly sensitive time for our community.”

Here’s what the police had to deal with on the city’s streets:

“Fiery, but mostly peaceful”:

Apparently, these deluded rioters and the Democrats who enable them think that this is the way to win hearts and minds and affect change.  It’s not, of course, all it does is aggravate and anger the people they need on their side, namely their fellow citizens among the general public.

The longer these riots continue, the less anyone cares what these rioters want or why; people just want the violence, bullying, and lawlessness stopped in its tracks.
