How does forcing out four men of integrity equal a BLM “victory”?
In what’s being hailed as a victory for the Black Lives Matter terrorist group, Police Chief La’Ron Singletary, Commander Deputy Chief Joseph Morabito, Deputy Chief Mark Simmons, and Commander Fabian Rivera have all tendered their resignations from the Rochester, NY, Police Department.
Interestingly enough, both Singletary and Simmons are black. Morabito is of Italian lineage. Rivera was the highest ranking Latino on the RPD.
Rochester has seen multiple nights of rioting well over four months after Daniel Prude died while in police custody.
As reported by the Chicago Sun-Times (CST), Prude’s family “told police they suspected he was under the influence of the powerful hallucinogen phencyclidine, or PCP.”
The CST also cites that “community organizer” Ashley Gantt accuses the Rochester PD of treating Prude, “inhumanely and without dignity.” It was also noted that then police initially approached Prude, “he walked naked and bleeding down Jefferson Avenue in the southwestern part of the city.”
Buried deep in the article, the CST eventually noted;
“Toxicology tests as part of the autopsy found a low level of PCP, also known as angel dust, in Prude’s blood. The drug can induce schizophrenia and wildly erratic, violent behavior.
The autopsy report listed “acute phencyclidine intoxication” as a complication of his death. The medical examiner did not say whether the levels of PCP in his blood explained Prude’s behavior before and during his detention by city police and did not make any mention of preexisting mental health issues that might have come into play.”
What the CST failed to note, is that according to the federal government’s National Center for Biotechnology Information official website, PCP “can cause seizures, coma, and death.”
With all that aside, MSN.com is describing that the resignations of the RPD’s top commanders “as a victory for the racial justice movement.”
With Chief Singletary leaving the RPD at the end of the month, he was quoted as stating (emphasis mine);
“As a man of integrity, I will not sit idly by while outside entities attempt to destroy my character,” Rochester Police Chief La’Ron Singletary said in his open resignation letter.
“The events over the past week are an attempt to destroy my character and integrity,” he accused. “The members of the Rochester Police Department and the Greater Rochester Community know my reputation and know 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.”
