THE DAILY | JANUARY 2023

Ruth Lowenkron, director of Disability Justice at NYLPI, was featured in a New York Times Magazine story about the failures of bodycam footage in instances of police violence. Eric Umansky, ProPublica editor, discusses that story and more on The Daily, a New York Times podcast.

“Having a little black box on officers’ chest recording everything they do isn’t enough. Really, we need to address the more fundamental issue of ‘who controls the footage that is being recorded on those cameras?'” – Eric Umansky
