‘Who Replaces Me?’: An Update
This week, The Daily is revisiting some of our favorite episodes of the year and checking in on what has happened in the time since they first ran.
Scott Watson — a Black police officer in his hometown, Flint, Mich. — has worked to become a pillar of the community. And he always believed his identity put him in a unique position to discharge his duties.
After watching the video of the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis police custody in May, his job became a source of self-consciousness instead of pride.
Today, we call up Scott once again and ask how he’s been doing and how things have been in his police department.
Guest: Scott Watson, a police officer in Flint, Mich.
- Lynsea Garrison wrote about interviewing Scott in an edition of The Daily newsletter.
- Many Black and Hispanic officers in New York City have found themselves caught between competing loyalties in the wake of the killing of George Floyd.
