    Polyglot Pete is lying out his buttigieg. Mr. All Lives Matter used racist dog whistle because his top 2 donors in south bend wanted him to fire the black chief of police and all the black police officers. If Pete will do and say racist things for a little bit of political power, imagine what he will do to get into the oval office.

    If they are leaving let them go. Use this event to start a new way of hiring and recruiting of and from the local taxpaying public. Let us put the best amongst "US" to do the job of policing. And send those that bring homegrown racism to the job back home.

    There are so many police bodycam shooting videos out nowadays due to the blm movement but no one ever talks about those in the media because they all show how it really goes down.

    These racist police officers always turn their bodycams off right before they are about to "interact" with a person of color.

    All police departments (and most do) have to try to make their police departments percentage of black and white officers be the same percentage of black and white citizens. Maybe Mayor Pete Buttigieg should start a NATION WIDE recruiting program to bring black officers to his city. He also should call on the black community in his city to become involved and encourage young black men and women to become police officers. After the Ferguson Missouri police shooting and riots more black citizens got involved. They gained three new black city council people.

    Pete Buttigieg you proved again tonight in Miami that you are swinging way above your weight class!
    After dozens of police shootings the past several years of African-Americans around the country why aren't you and your administration in a better pro active position concerning this serious issue?

    why are the mob protestors waving the flag of Africa?   We're told Mayor Pete "isn't making any talking points" …. as opposed to the group of vigilantes ready to throw rotten tomatoes and all graduates of the prestigious on-line GED University who majored in rap music appreciation.
