Doctors Agree Nothing Benign About the Chokehold-A Correction

In the May 28, 2023 op ed “Doctors Agree Nothing Benign About the Chokehold”
by Earl Ofari Hutchinson
A correction

The following sentence inaccurately portrays the 2021 American Academy of Neurology Neck Restraints Position Statement:

“The Justice Department and the American Academy of Neurology in 2021 conducted a rigorous study of the

medical hazards of the carotid restraint.”

Because this was a position statement and not a study, and because the Justice Department was not involved, we are requesting that the sentence please be corrected to the following:

“The American Academy of Neurology issued a position statement in 2021 recommending prohibiting use of

neck restraints in law enforcement.”
