White Officer Threatens Black Family in St. Louis

St. Louis County police apologized to a Black family who were questioned and threatened by a police officer Friday while they were fixing up a foreclosed home for a real estate firm. “I’m going to assume that you’re legitimate, but if something happens down the road, then we’re gonna come down like the headless horseman,” the officer told Dale C. Watson and his family. (Photo: Raymond Boyd/Michael Ochs Archives/Getty Images)
