Philadelphia’s police union is blasting Hillary Clinton for inviting relatives of victims of police shootings to speak at the Democratic National Convention next week, but failing to include relatives of slain police officers.
John McNesby, president of the Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 5, said the union was “shocked and saddened” by the planned choice of speakers at the convention, which opens Monday in Philadelphia.
“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,” Mr. McNesby said in a statement.
He said it’s “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.”
The Clinton campaign has scheduled former President Bill Clinton to speak Tuesday night with members of Mothers of the Movement, a group that includes relatives of black men killed by police such as Eric Garner of New York and Michael Brown of Ferguson, Missouri. Former Philadelphia Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey, who said the nation is a “powder keg” over the police-involved shootings and assassinations of officers, is also scheduled to speak.
Who said it was Hillary's turn? She belongs in prison.
And what did they or anyone else expect from the hilldabeast?????
She wants the black vote and she will get it.
IF all of us don't get off out rear ends and get out to help Trump win, WE ARE A DOOMED NATION. END OF STORY!!!!

This so called woman has no soul. She is evil.
Some of the worse 'dredges of society' will be speaking at the dnc convention. That par for the dnc..
I am right she is a lying 2 bit tramp. A worthless fat butt
This is typical Marxist doctrine... created to agitate for violence and revolution. The American People must understand the purpose of such inflammatory actions is to divide us. We must all condemn such acts and those who support them.
The Democrat Party is not the Party of the American worker.... it was hijacked decades ago by Marxist agents of the Communist International Party, who are using the Democratic Party to FUNDAMENTALLY TRANSFORM AMERICA... forcing America to accept socialism and its Marxist doctrines.
Spot on, Ronald. These left-wing, Marxist, progressive fools might just get that revolution. If we keep on heading down the path we're on, it very well might happen soon.
SHE IS HAVING THESE PEOPLE SPEAK BECAUSE SHE CAN'T FIND ANYONE ELSE TO SAY ANYTHING
NICE ABOUT HER.
It actually makes me sick to my stomach to just look at her and to think she could be our president. We are in for a bad time come voting. The deomcraps will do all kinds of voting fraud and tampering with voting machines and that's IF we even get to VOTE! Remember the Martial Law thing....
