Mayor Pete tends to official duties in South Bend, Indiana, after an officer shot and killed a man, allegedly with a knife.

A lawyer for the family of a black man killed by Indiana police officer South Bend mayor Pete Buttigieg says not “proactive” about officer involved shootings.

Eric Logan’s family is planning a civil rights lawsuit against the city after the 54-year-old man was fatally shot on the road last Sunday, while allegedly, the police threatened with a knife.


The officer, who was off the body of the camera at the time, something Buttigieg, said that he was “very frustrated” about. The Democrat and 2020 presidential candidate of the left the election campaign for several days “with the” South Bend community,” says the Washington Post.

Logan family attorney Brian Coffman said in an interview that systemic problems were to blame for the death of the husband.

“It is a total acceptance of this behavior by the South Bend police Department and the city itself,” Coffman said.

Members of the community Buttigieg criticised for speaking in front of the media, the family, and for the lack of a vigil for Logan. The shooting has highlighted that the candidate is the distance between the black members of his community and in the larger scale – black voters.

To remember, in spite of Buttigieg the management of the South Bend police chief, the officers, the body cameras are a must, during an interaction with civilians, Coffman says his reaction to the incident were “reactive” and he would certainly have these types of incidents don’t happen in the first place.


“I write a letter to the [Ministry of justice], which explain what is happening, to explain why it is not the community’s confidence in the current process,” Buttigieg said at a South Bend rally for Logan on Friday, according to South Bend from WNDU-TV.

Buttigieg skipped an event in South Carolina, but on Friday, seven other candidates speak at a forum in Miami about immigration followed.
