How Pete Buttigieg and Elizabeth Warren Cracked the Code of the 2020 Race Pete Buttigieg ran through his stump speech (six minutes on generational change), tossed bean bags with activists (in front of as many cameras as Iowa voters), took seven questions from reporters (“How does it feel to be a rock star?”) and pounded out some blues on an electric keyboard (a Miles Davis tune).

Tensions spilled over at a town hall held Sunday by South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg following the fatal police shooting of a black man, drawing further scrutiny on the Democratic presidential candidate's record.

The town hall, which was held in South Bend a week after Eric Logan, an African-American man, was killed by a police officer, grew tense as visibly angry black residents confronted Buttigieg and Police Chief Scott Ruszkowski over systemic failures with the city's law enforcement.

Buttigieg, speaking calmly as audience members grew increasingly vocal, said the city will share information as soon as officials are able.

The 37-year-old mayor, who has seen his popularity skyrocket in polls over the past several months, has sought to quell the anger in the community following Logan's death, and temporarily left the campaign trail last week in order to address the incident.

Iran Shoots Down a U.S. Drone, Escalating Tensions

Iran Shoots Down a U.S. Drone, Escalating Tensions Iran shot down a United States surveillance drone early Thursday, both nations said, but they differed on the crucial issue of whether the aircraft had violated Iranian airspace, in the latest escalation in tensions that have raised fears of war between the two countries. Iranian officials said that the drone was over Iran, which the American military denied — an important distinction in determining who was at fault — and each side accused the other of being the aggressor.

The military veteran and Rhodes Scholar was already facing criticism over his handling of the firing of South Bend's black former police chief, and his decision not to publicly release of five tapes critics say could include racist language used by police officers.

The shooting of Logan by Sgt. Ryan O'Neill, who was not wearing his body camera at the time, has further strained relations between South Bend's black community and city officials. Protesters confronted Buttigieg after he returned to the city, and those simmering tensions appeared to boil over during Sunday's town hall.

One woman during the town hall asked that the city place any racists "at the desk."

"If anyone who is on patrol is shown to be a racist or to do something racist in a way that is substantiated that is their last day on the street," Buttigieg responded.

He added that the city will look into any tools to help them better evaluate officers' racist activity.

"I don't want to seem defensive, but we have taken a lot of steps. They clearly haven't been enough. But I can't accept the suggestion that we haven't done anything," Buttigieg said. "I acknowledge that it has not been enough, I would like as many different voices to be in the process as possible... it's why we're here."

Throughout the evening, residents pushed Buttigieg as to why the body camera that the city purchased wasn't used.

Buttigieg said the failure could have happened due to the technology, the written policy or the individual officer. He said he can't yet speak to the specifics of Sunday's shooting, which is under review.

However, he said the administration hired the officer, wrote the policy and purchased the technology.

"At the end of the day I'm responsible," Buttigieg said.
