BLM Rioters Cause Estimated $100,000 In Damages In Manhattan, NY
The destruction hit at least eight businesses and banks in Manhattan
Manhattan residents and business owners suffered tens of thousands of dollars in damages after approximately 150 Black Lives Matter rioters destroyed businesses and banks in Lower Manhattan on Friday evening.
The total cost of damages from one night of rioting caused an estimated $100,000, according to Police sources, as per New York Post.
Eight people were arrested by The New York City Police Department in connection to the damages.
The destruction hit at least eight businesses and banks in Manhattan.
Out of the arrested rioters were from out of town:
One from Iowa
One from Portland, Oregon
The suspects were charged with rioting, while some were also hit with additional charges of weapons and burglary tools possession.
Following the video of Prude’s arrest in March, which was released earlier this week, more riots broke out in parts of New York.
In March, two people, including Prude’s brother, called the police saying that Prude was acting erratically and suffering from mental health issues.
Prude was running around naked and screaming at people that he had COVID-19 in a neighborhood in Rochester, New York.
The video shows police cuffing a naked Prude before leaving him on the ground.
Prude challenges the officer before demanding a gun.
As body camera footage and media reports suggest, the 41-year-old threw up, and lost consciousness after cops restrained him.
He was resuscitated on the way to the hospital, according to reports, but likely suffered severe brain damage before being taken off life support a week later.
Prude has a mesh-like hood placed over his head, which is dubbed a “spit hood.”
The device is used to protect officers from saliva.
Prude was reportedly telling people he had the coronavirus while spitting on people.
Prude had died from “complications of asphyxia in the setting of physical restraint due to excited delirium due to acute phencyclidine intoxication,” according to The Monroe County Medical Examiner’s Office.
The result indicates he may have been high on PCP at the time of his arrest.
BLM Protesters took to the streets in Rochester and disrupted diners and causing chaos.
Meanwhile, several people attempted to break into an apartment building.
One Rochester resident called for the entire police force to resign
“We want badges, we want Chief of Police badges. We want it because they swept this under the rug.”
“Black lives do matter, okay? We want to see those officers arrested, and if we don’t—we tired. We are tired. We tired of it, man,” he continued.
“They act like black people—we want justice all over the world, we want equal pay, we want equal rights, when you go to court, we wanna be treated equal.”
