Swalwell Rips Buttigiege Over South Bend Shootingrip

Body cameras were supposed to end the wrongful death law suit trend
But not the case when they are not turned on in the case of shooting Logan in South Bend
Officer O’ Neill responding to a report of cars being damaged came upon the scene without siren turned on
Body camera linked remained off so no video record of whether Logan’s knife was or was not drawn
The officer said he was retreating while Logan with a knife pointed continued to advance
Fearing being stabbed did not want to take the potentially fatal chance
Fired two shots one of which in the abdomen struck
Another officer took Logan to hospital in three minutes but he was out of luck
The city is 24% black but black officers total only six percent
Protesters of the shooting into the streets quickly went
Blacks too often do not believe accounts of shootings by officers of the law
Body cameras whose on switch is linked to a siren is a fatal flaw
Mayor Peter from Swalwell over not firing the officer took a lot of flack
Facts not in and a rush to judgment to side with the feelings of the family of a dead black
Defect on the camera switch needs to be fixed and in all confrontations the camera must be on
Or protests in the streets and wrongful death suits will in such shootings be spawned
