Protesters BOMBARD Mayor Buttigieg at town hall over cop shooting

Mayor Pete Buttigieg faced angry protesters at his town hall over a cop shooting of a black man in his town of South Bend, Indiana.

They are not happy, especially since somehow the cop’s bodycam was magically turned off before the shooting.

Watch below:



More about the town hall at NBC News:

South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg was peppered with tough questions Sunday as he sat alongside the city’s police chief at a town hall event following a white police officer shooting a black man to death one week prior.

Buttigieg was repeatedly shouted down and met with profanities and heckles as he spoke during the extremely tense and emotional town hall meeting at a local high school about last weekend’s shooting.

The shooting took place when South Bend police responded to a report of a suspicious person going through cars at an apartment complex. When South Bend Police Sgt. Ryan O’Neill, engaged with the suspect, 53-year-old Eric Jack Logan, Logan allegedly approached the officer with a knife. The officer then fired at Logan, who was taken to a hospital and soon after was pronounced dead. The officer was treated for minor injuries.

Here’s another video of the town hall:

More:

Buttigieg and South Bend Police Chief Scott Ruszkowski took questions for nearly two hours, with attendees pointedly asking about the failures of the police officer’s body camera.

Buttigieg acknowledged that two of his initiatives — implementing body cameras for officers and diversifying the police force — have not yet been successful.

Asked about the failure of the body cameras, he said, “If anybody is trying to figure out who to hold responsible, the administration bought the technology, hired the officer and wrote the policy.”

“So at the end of the day, I’m responsible,” Buttigieg said.

BUT also at the end of the day, Booty-judge is leaving and going to the presidential election debates. And that’s just gonna get the protesters even more angry.

  1. You ( the community ) lose me when complaints of the new cops recently sworn in are all white and when a protestor in the last video is holding up a red, green, and black flag.

  2. “If anybody is trying to figure out who to hold responsible, the administration bought the technology, hired the officer and wrote the policy.”

    Uh, and the cop.

    Punting to “the bureaucracy” is a lame ass way to ensure that there is never any accountability in government. Which includes law enforcement, for all you people who keep forgetting that.

    1. There should be accountability. Absolutely. Appropriately, though. They have to figure out how and why that camera was off. Everyone, predictably, goes to their corners and start spouting off. No one cares what actually happened. That’s what gets me.

      The family of this guy have every right to get emotional over this incident. Hell, I know I would be but everyone else needs to STFU up until the point what really happened is found out.

      1. He had his camera off. Period.

        Regardless of the reason why, that should be grounds for termination and loss of pension.

        It’s not. Not yet. But it damn well should be.

  3. Just heard that Nancy Pelosi is thanking Trump for delaying the ICE raids and now feels she can work with Trump on Border Security in exchange for the citizenship of the 10 miliiion illegals now in the Country

      1. Just the Thought of those two working together gets me upset Huge article over at Brietbart regarding Nancy and Donald.

  4. Define racist in 2019 for me.. As near as I can tell I’m a racist for being a successful white male…

  5. I just heard a WBAP Dallas report that 92% of left wing protesters live at home and only one in three has a job. Why, I’m shocked!

  6. Body cams are a string of fragile devices connected together and placed on an individual facing a deadly assault. Technology fails. You can spend obscene amounts of money, but sometimes there will still be a failure (e.g. airplane crashes, nuclear reactor meltdowns, etc.).

    Body cams are good. Expecting them to work 100% of the time is foolish. Getting angry because there is no video of the knife wielding perp attacking the injured officer is faux outrage.

    1. @txgrunner Especially the obscene amounts of money. Some people want all officers to wear body cameras without regard to the cost to the taxpayers.

  7. Must be tough for Mayor Pete to get this kind of rough treatment, when he’s used to the fawning press and people telling him how great he is.

    Say what you want about Trump, he’s had everything thrown at him and no one can land a glove on him.

  8. I don’t know if I can say it’s suspicious because his body cam was off. That would mean that it was premeditated and it becomes more difficult to believe. Possible I guess.

  9. He has this coming to be called out, he is the mayor. I think it’s BS to call out a governor for town/city issues since he governs the state as a whole [let alone the president], and the task of town/city management goes to the mayor…Which in this case is Pete.

  10. So who hired these goons? Black Lives Matter never set foot in South Bend, Indiana until Buttigieg was running for President. . . Correction: Until Buttigieg was suddenly Top 5 in the Democrat field.

    1. I noticed in a few other videos that some of them are white people dressed up in ANTIFA garb. That suggests that there is a paid activist aspect behind all of this, i guess Pete isn’t a darling of the DNC.

  11. The fact that the police officer’s body cam was not turned on does not automatically condemn the officer or the police department.
    No one may ever know if the shooting was justified to save the officer’s life from an attacker with a knife. But I’m willing to bet that if the roles were reversed, black officer shoots white thief, there wouldn’t be a peep out of the black community. Not a word.

    If this is the route we are going – dont tax wall street , go after the endowments from these colleges who produce nothing but debt ridden idiots.

    1. And everyone who’s ever had a student loan to pay back and did so should raise hell.

        1. Everyone can come up with some slight against them, especially done by the government, so yeah, reparations for all.

  13. Cartels are making billions, and these desperate people are making very dangerous treks to our border because there is too great an incentive. My heart breaks for these babies.

    1. @Tracy. It’s bad down here and most of the country is oblivious to it. I heard about this on the radio this morning. I disconnected two things that might be causing the interference and I have been able to listen for nearly an hour!!

  16. I’m hearing that we retaliated for the drone by a cyber attack on Iran’s military. It was done with clickbait phishing, and some dummy swallowed the hook.

      1. @homer It wouldn’t surprise me. It was on of those Where are they now? from a TV show that I forgot almost immediately.

        awww I’m so sorry trapper for your loss. My heart goes out to you it really does.

  18. There was also a shooting at a South Bend bar over the weekend, one dead and 10 injured.

      1. @trapper1960s The bar has an Irish name, so I presume that they were white folks.

  20. It’s sad that every single justifiable shooting of a black thug by police in America, causes the democrat-owned black population of this country to go crazy. But, this is the reality today – and if anyone needs and deserves a good dose of reality, it is this ridiculous Buttclown.

  22. You mean the mayor can’t get past this real world issue by simply kissing his partner this time?
    What is the world coming to?

    1. I think Mayor Pete might reconsider taking it up the a– after the reaming he’s getting from the BLM crowd.

    It’s summer in Alabama. Current time: 10:56 Current temp: 82 degrees. Who do I go to complain, protest and get reparations?

    1. Donald Trump because if he hadn’t pulled out of the Paris Accord that wouldn’t be happening in Alabama at the end of June. Ever.
