Police officers all over the country are still struggling to recover from the anti-cop shootings in places like Dallas and Baton Rouge that have left many officers dead or wounded this month. That’s why it came as a slap in their faces this week when Hillary Clinton announced that she had invited relatives of those who were shot dead by police to speak at the Democratic National Convention next week.
In a very Obama-like move, Clinton ignored the families of the officers who have been killed by race-baiters in the last few weeks.
According to Right Wing News, Philadelphia’s police union spoke out this week to blast Clinton and the DNC for this decision. John McNesby, president of the Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 5, said the union was “shocked and saddened” by the list of speakers.
“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,” McNesby said, according to The Washington Times.
It’s sickening that Clinton is putting her race-baiting agenda ahead of honoring the police officers who gave their lives for their country. SHARE this story if you think Hillary Clinton owes police an apology!
