Police Transgender ‘Equalities Officer’ Charged with Explosives and Weapons Offenses
UK — Lincoln, England. On October 4, 2020, police raided the home of Zoe Watts (formerly Kyle Ashley Jake Watts), equalities officer for Lincolnshire Police UNISON, and former police community support officer (PCSO) with the Bracebridge Lowfields Community Police.
The arrest marks the second time in two years that a transgender equalities officer has been taken into custody on weapons charges.
Watts has a YouTube channel called Survival Mistakes, which include videos giving such tips as how to create shotgun shell survival kits and tampon fire rockets. In one video, Watts makes a baseball bat covered in glass, to smash watermelons with masks of famous faces on them, including feminist scholar Germaine Greer (author of The Female Eunuch).
