Daniel Prude was experiencing a mental health crisis in March when Rochester, New York, police officers responding to a 911 call pinned him to the pavement while handcuffed and naked, suffocating him to death.
A month later, Nicolas Chavez, 27, was “having a mental breakdown” in Houston when he was shot 21 times, with 28 officers on the scene.
And last week, 13-year-old Linden Cameron, who has autism, was having an episode when officers shot him, leaving him with injuries to his shoulder, ankles, intestines and bladder.
