Correction

In The Death of Dontay Ivy and “Walking While Black”, posted on March 1, I incorrectly said the officers approached Dontay Ivy on a set of steps. In fact the District Attorney’s letter to Mayor Sheehan said the officers who later stopped Ivy, began their shift by approaching an unidentified man sitting on a set of front steps. The incident is relevant in describing the behavior of the officers but not in describing Dontay’s experiences on his last night alive. Thank you to Mark Mishler for spotting my mistake.
