16. SOUNDBITE (English) Oliver Davis, South Bend Common Council:
"Why in the world, when we have the budget to do that and we want to make sure all of the officers who have it, when I'm sitting up there reading there's no body cameras on, that's the same way. That's why we had it."
St. Joseph County, Indiana Prosecutor Ken Cotter says there is no body cam video of the fatal shooting of a black man by a white police officer in South Bend, the city where Democratic Presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg is mayor.
Sgt. Ryan O'Neill had been responding to a call about a suspicious person going through vehicles when he spotted 54-year-old Eric Jack Logan early Sunday, leaning inside a car, Cotter said. When confronted, Logan approached the officer with a 6- to 8-inch knife raised over his head, Cotter said. That's when O'Neill fired twice, with the other shot hitting a car door, Cotter said.
Cotter said no police video exists of the confrontation as the officer's dash and body cameras weren't automatically activated because he was driving slowly without his emergency lights on while looking through a parking lot.
Logan's brother Tyree Bonds told WSBT-TV that he suspects there is video of the shooting. "But they are not going to show this stuff because they don't want to show the truth. This ain't nothing but a cover up," he said.
Mayor Buttigieg canceled several days of campaign events after returning to South Bend, where he spent the day meeting with community members and faith leaders.
The white mayor has had a sometimes-tense relationship with the black community dating back to his first term in office, when he fired the city's first black police chief. He has also faced criticism for his handling of police misconduct cases, including a case involving an officer who was twice disciplined for civil rights violations but not fired, and for not having a police department that reflects South Bend's diversity. Roughly 40% of the city's residents are black or Hispanic; the department is almost 90% white.
