“We are hurting. I could walk you through all of the things we have done as a community,” he said at the debate. “All of the steps we took, from bias training to de-escalation, but it didn’t save the life of Eric Logan. When I look into his mother’s eyes, I have to face the fact that nothing that I say will bring him back.”
And David Axelrod, who worked as Barack Obama’s chief strategist, told that the cerebral candidate missed a opportunity to emotionally connection with the community during a contentious town hall Sunday.
“The effort to recruit more minority officers to the department and the effort to introduce body cameras have not succeeded and I accept responsibility for that,” he said. “We have tried but not succeeded to increase diversity in the police department and we need help.”
Eric Logan’s mother said, “I have to face the fact that nothing that I say will bring him back.”
“Look, we have taken so many steps toward police accountability that, you know, the FOP just denounced me for too much accountability,” Buttigieg said. “We’re obviously not there yet, and I accept responsibility for that because I’m in charge.”
