Fraternal Order of Police Slams Hillary Clinton: Why Are You Shutting Out Widows of Police Officers From The DNC?
Michael Brown was shot and killed in 2014 by Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson after Brown attempted to take his gun, with the intention to use it against him during a struggle in Wilson's police cruiser. Despite these facts, which were proven by a Grand Jury and by the Obama Justice Department under Attorney General Eric Holder, the mainstream media continues to refer to Brown as an "unarmed black man" who was "shot by a white police officer."
The mothers of Trayvon Martin and Eric Garner will also give remarks.
This speaker lineup has prompted the Fraternal Order of Police Philadelphia chapter to issue a statement to the DNC, saying Hillary Clinton should be ashamed and asking why widows and children of officers killed in the line of duty aren't on the agenda.
"The Fraternal Order of Police is insulted and will not soon forget that the Democratic Party and Hillary Clinton are excluding the widows, and other family members of Police Officers killed in the line of duty who were victims of explicit, and not implied racism, and 'being on duty in blue,'" Philadelphia Lodge 5 FOP President John McNesby said in the statement. "It is sad that to win an election Mrs. Clinton must pander to the interests of people who do not know all the facts, while the men and women they seek to destroy are outside protecting the political institutions of this country."
"Mrs. Clinton, you should be ashamed of yourself if that is possible," he continued.
The DNC and the Clinton campaign have not issued a response.
