Thanos actor Josh Brolin reacted to the death of Daniel Prude killed by the police officers in Rochester, New York, with his latest post on his Instagram account.
The Footage of Daniel Prude, who died six months ago in Rochester, came to light, despite his surrender and his hands being handcuffed, the police put a plastic bag on his head and pressed his head to the ground.
In the footage, Prude, who surrendered on the street, lies on the ground in line with the instructions given to him after the police’s warning, his hands were handcuffed, and the police put a plastic bag on the head of Prude, who was lying in a harmless and handcuffed manner, and pressed it to the ground.
After the footage was released, Josh Brolin blasted the police community, although he is a supporter of them. He said that the police intervention against Prude, who was thought to be harmless and mentally disabled, was callous. He also thought that the behavior of the police officers was a terrorist act.
Here’s what Josh Brolin stated:
“DANIEL PRUDE died AFTER this moment?! I have been a huge supporter of the police community, but how can you be so callous as to not react to a handcuffed, mentally disabled man with a bag over his head dying at the hands of a trained force is beyond me. There’s no debate here. If you are for it, you are for easy murder. If you are against it, you are for humanity. It’s that plain and simple.
Police are put in life-threatening situations all the time and have reason to be paranoid and fear for their lives. Not here. This is an act of terrorism. Tell me it’s not. Strong is not homicidal. Strong is not forceful and suffocating. A strong protector of our communities is something entirely different. Get out of the protect and serve business if you can’t be an asset.”
An Instagram user hinted that Prude caused his own death while defending the police officers:
“Physiological effects of low to moderate doses of PCP include: the slight increase in breathing rate, rise in blood pressure and pulse rate, shallow respiration, flushing, and profuse sweating occurs. The physiological effects of high doses of PCP include a drop in blood pressure, pulse rate, and respiration.
Nausea, vomiting, blurred vision, flicking up and down of the eyes, drooling, loss of balance, and dizziness. PCP causes breathing problems at any dose. I wonder if he would be alive today if he had not taken an illegal narcotic, stayed in the hospital he escaped from or wasn’t naked in the middle of the street while screaming he has COVID and spitting at the police. Its almost as if he was the cause of his own death.”
Brolin also blasted the IG user and responded to him:
“I also wonder what it would be if there was no mental illness, no drug addiction, no irrational/erratic behaviors what it would be like. Can you imagine some of the dumb shit you and your friends have done if you suffered always the worst consequences imaginable? Like some third world countries: death by stoning for infidelity. Was she the cause of her own death? I guess it’s all perspective and what your own personal ideas of justice and punishable by death protocols are.”
