The Daily Freeman admits it made a mistake with its initial reporting of the traffic deaths of Dante Crump, 22, of Kingston, Adam (Jeff) McQueen, 22, of Ulster Park, Kaireem Meeks Jr., 24, of Kingston, and Jonte Clark, 26, of Kingston, which included some criminal records. "An early Web version of an Aug. 27 followup story on the deaths included the criminal records of some of the victims. The information was deleted from the story a little less than two hours later and did not appear in print. The Freeman posted an apology on its Facebook page," the paper reported. Freeman Managing Editor Tony Adamis plans to apologize to protesters who plan to gather at 3 p.m. Sept. 8 outside the newspaper's office on Hurley Avenue in Kingston. The Ministers’ Alliance of Ulster County, End Jim Crow Action Network, Kinsgton Council of Churches, Citizens Action of New York, and Midtown Rising are organizing the protest.
