Pete Buttigieg holds town-hall in police shooting in South Bend

SOUTH BEND, Ind. (ADAMS) – South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg is facing tough questions about the police killing of a black man last week. Yesterday, the 2020 Democratic presidential candidate held a town-hall for a crowd of people that at times booed and shouted over him. Mayor Pete answered questions calmly, acknowledging the lack of trust between the black community in South Bend and the police. He also pointed out reforms that he’s already taken on as mayor, but admitted that they might not have gone far enough.

Buttigieg has taken breaks from his presidential campaign several times since the June 16th shooting of Eric Logan to return to South Bend to address the issue.
