The South Bend F.O.P. Lodge has called on Mayor Pete Buttigieg to recuse himself from all decisions in the June 16 police shooting case.
In a statement Monday afternoon they pointed out that the mayor is using what it calls “the justified shooting of a felon armed with an 8-inch hunting knife as a political issue” in the Democratic primary elections.
South Bend F.O.P. President Harvey Mills said “Mayor Buttigieg has repeatedly shown that he’s more concerned about boosting his own presidential political campaign than ensuring a fair investigation about an incident where a veteran police officer was forced to defend himself when a dangerous felon attacked him with an eight-inch hunting knife.”
