Stephanopolous to Buttigieg: Do You Have To Do a Better Job of ‘Owning’ Your South Bend Record?
STEPHANOPOULOS: “You seemed to little taken aback when it — when Linsey Davis (ph), on Friday night, challenged you about the record of African-American arrests for marijuana procession in South Bend. Do you have to do a better job of owning your record in South Bend and explaining it.”
BUTTIGIEG: “Well, I’ve never been afraid to talk about the good, the bad and the indifferent that we’ve experienced in South Bend. Look, when you’re a mayor, you’re not just calling for good things to happen, you have to be on the ground figuring it out. And when it comes to things like the systemic disparity in arrest rates and incarceration rates when it comes to marijuana, South Bend has not been immune.”
