Rochester Law Enforcement Command Staff Quits After Continued Attacks

In Rochester, New York, the entire command staff of law enforcement has resigned.

Police Chief La’Ron Singletary, Deputy Chief Joseph M. Morabito and a commander retired, while two more leaders gave up command positions following attack ‘investigations’ and continued attacks from democrats.

The Epoch Times reported:

Black Lives Matter activists have called for Singletary to resign or be fired over how his department handled the investigation into the death of a black man who a medical official said was under the influence of PCP earlier this year.

“After 20 years of dedicated service to the Rochester Police Department and the Rochester Community, I announce my retirement from the Rochester Police Department. For the past two decades, I have served this community with honor, pride, and the highest integrity,” Singletary said, reported Rochester First and other local news outlets.

Singletary said that he won’t “sit idly” while outside forces try “to destroy my character,” adding that events “over the past week are an attempt to destroy my character and integrity.”

“The mischaracterization and the politicization of the actions that I took after being informed of Mr. Prude’s death is not based on facts, and is not what I stand for,” he said.

Prude, a 41-year-old male from Chicago, died during an encounter with police in March. Video footage of the incident was released last month in the midst of nationwide unrest and riots.

An autopsy report from the Monroe County Medical Examiner’s Office ruled his death a homicide, but it also stipulated that his cause of death included “complications of asphyxia in the setting of physical restraint.”

It added that Prude had PCP in his system at the time of his death. PCP, which is a dissociative hallucinogenic drug similar to DXM and ketamine, can produce delusions, irrationality, hallucinations, and other symptoms. Those who are under the influence may experience a reduced sensitivity to pain or feelings of super-strength and invulnerability.

Police said that Prude was allegedly smashing windows at storefronts and claiming he had COVID-19. A person who called 911 said Prude was naked and covered in blood.

The New York Attorney General’s office is investigating the incident.

Over the past week or so, rioters set fire to a number of businesses and smashed windows of buildings in Rochester.

Breitbart News reported:

Chief La’Ron Singletary released a letter about his resignation and 20 years of service, which said, in part:

The members of the Rochester Police Department and the Greater Rochester Community know my reputation and what I stand for. The mischaracterization and the politicization of the actions that I took after being informed of Mr. Prude’s death is not based on facts, and is not what I stand for.

I would like to thank the men and women of the Rochester Police Department, as well as the Rochester Community for allowing me the honor of serving as your chief and fulfilling a lifelong dream. I look forward to serve our community in my next chapter.

According to the public information officer with the Rochester police, Deputy Chief Joseph Morabito and Commander Fabian Rivera also announced their retirement.
