The community is reacting to a grand jury's decision not to indict Albany police officers who confronted Donald "Dontay" Ivy on the night he died.
Albany County D.A. David Soares announced Wednesday that police will face no charges in the case involving Ivy, the 39-year old African American man who died in April after officers stopped him on an Arbor Hill street, eventually subduing him with a stun gun.
“…my intention, moving forward, is to take this issue on as aggressively as I possibly can. And I will be calling to task my other partners in law enforcement, faith-based organizations and other leaders who I believe also have a responsibility to contribute to the betterment of young people of color in the city of Albany."
Citizens are planning to rally 5:45 Friday evening outside Albany Police Department headquarters on Henry Johnson Boulevard.
