A VERY rattling mayor Pete Buttigieg becomes a & # 39; traitor & # 39; named and shattered during the fiery town hall that met the presidential candidate of the democrat, named after a black man who was shot by the South Bend police
Mayor Pete Buttigieg, a Democratic hopeful president from 2020, got confused at a city council meeting he gathered on Sunday to address the concerns of constituent parties about the increasing tensions between the community and South Bend, Indiana Police Department.
The heckler was called Buttigieg a & # 39; traitor & # 39; during the live broadcast, which took place exactly one week after a 54-year-old black man was shot and killed by a police officer in South Bend.
The officer did not turn on his body camera before he shot the man, which led to even more controversies surrounding the incident.
Many have shown frustration with Buttigieg for not taking immediate action and have even gone so far as to accuse him of taking sides with the police.

The government website says the event was intended to outline the process for officers-involved shooting investigations and hearings before the Public Safety Board.
Buttigieg has temporarily stopped all campaign-related appearances – missing out on high-profile events in New York, Hollywood and South Carolina – to address the unrest in the city where he is mayor and to speak with his voters.
During the town hall he mentioned the radioactive fallout between the community and the police station & # 39; very challenging & # 39 ;.
Buttigieg is the youngest candidate of the 24 in the Democratic Primary at the age of 37.
On Friday evening, he participated in a march in front of the police headquarters with more than 100 frustrated protesters, including the mother and brother of Eric Logan, the man who was shot and killed by Sgt. Ryan O & # 39; Neill when responding to reports of car burglaries.
According to the South Bend Tribune, a demonstrator suggested that no black people would vote for Buttigieg.
& # 39; You are running for president and you want black people to vote for you? That is not going to happen, & the demonstrator said.
Buttigieg held the City Hall at Washington High School in South Bend together with police chief Scott Ruszkowski. It was moderated by NAACP South Bend chapter president Michael Patton.
