What Does The South Bend Police Department Think Of Mayor Pete Buttigieg?

Mayor and presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg has angered both the police in South Bend and the residents with his reaciton to a police involved shooting. In the Democratic debates, and on the campaign trail, Mayor Buttigieg has made comments angering police, intimating that they are racist and policing is based in systemic racism.

South Bend Fraternal Order of Police Preisdent Harvey Mills talked to Tony Katz about tensions in South Bend, how the police department has responded to Mayor Buttigieg’s statements (including when the Mayor sent the police department pizza) and how city residents are reacting.

The interviewed occured on July 23rd, and originally aired on Tony Katz Today.

Are These The 25 Best Beers In America?

USA Today made a list of what they say are the best beers in America. The problem with any list like this is that deciding the 25 best beers is way too pretentious. Just, as Tony Katz feels about it, not as pretentious as an IPA.


This is Eat! Drink! Smoke! Tony, along with Fingers Malloy, reviews Beer Barrel Bourbon from New Holland Spirits and the Arturo Fuente Double Chateau cigar. Eat! Drink! Smoke! is sponsored by Fanimation.com

Look, if you’re an IPA fan, there’s nothing wrong with that. Tony isn’t. Fingers isn’t. But that doesn’t take away from their huge popularity, and multiple appearances on the list.

And if you’re curious, Tony and Fingers prefer the stouts and the brown ales.
