PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Philadelphia’s police union is condemning Hillary Clinton for allowing relatives of people killed by police to speak at the Democratic National Convention without giving equal time to families of fallen officers.

President John McNesby says the union is insulted by the decision to exclude families of officers killed in the line of duty.

He says Clinton should be ashamed.

Clinton’s campaign responded that “we need to support heroic police officers who put their lives on the line” while listening to mothers who have lost their children.

“The Mothers of the Movement” group that’s scheduled to participate in the convention July 26 includes the mothers of Eric Garner and Michael Brown.

The campaign says former Philadelphia Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey will speak during the July 25-28 convention in Philadelphia.

    Sucking up to black voters. Nothing more, Pandering to blacks is standard operating procedure for Democrats. What’s pathetic is that they buy into it rather than be insulted.
