Host Brian Kilmeade said the video of the event made Buttigieg search for “little, if he needed you to see great,” and he seemed ” detached from the community.”

June, the 54-year-old Eric Logan, who was black shoot. The mayor added that he would like to the local state’s attorney would report, that an independent investigator be appointed.


Prosecutors said the shooting of Logan was not recorded by Sgt. Ryan O’neill the body of the camera.

O’neill, who is white, was responding to a report that met a suspicious person breaking into cars, when investigators said he fired a shot, Logan, and others, missed after Logan threatened him with a knife.
