Philadelphia’s police union is slamming Hillary Clinton for who will be speaking at the upcoming Democrat National Convention (DNC). They are even more upset over those who were not invited.
One of the most controversial speakers will include the mother of Mike Brown, who was the suspect shot and killed by police in 2015. The incident started the “Hands up, don’t shoot” media narrative, which falsely alleged that Brown did not have an altercation with police before being shot.
President John McNesby and the membership of Philadelphia Lodge 5 FOP said they are “shocked and saddened” by the announcment, the Washington Examiner reported. As McNesby pointed out, none of the speakers include widows or family members of officers killed in the line of duty.
The full letter the Philadelphia police union sent Clinton was making its rounds on Twitter:
The Clinton campaign responded by simply saying that she supports police, but also desires to speak out against police brutality of African Americans.
Other speakers at the DNC also includes the mother of Trayvon Martin, who was killed in the midst of an altercation with neighborhood watchman George Zimmerman.
Contrast those speakers with those of the Republican National Convention (RNC) where parents who lost their children to illegal immigrants and Pat Smith, the mother of one of the men who was killed in the Benghazi, Libya attacks while Clinton was Secretary of State.
