Hillary Clinton Campaigns with Mothers of Black Suspects Killed by Police, Ignores Officers Killed in Line of Duty

February 29, 2016  | 

Hillary Clinton paid tribute Saturday during her primary victory rally to the mothers of black suspects killed by police–while ignoring the rising number of police killed by gunfire in the line of duty this year.

The Democratic presidential candidate paused during her speech in Columbia, S.C., to honor the five women, who also campaigned with her across South Carolina before Saturday’s primary. 

“They all lost children, which is almost unimaginable, yet they have not been broken or embittered,” Clinton said, adding that they have turned their “mourning into a movement.”

She recited the names of Gwen Carr, mother of Eric Garner; and three others, Fox News reports.

But she did not mention the rash of police fatalities. So far this year, according to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund, 10 officers have been shot and killed, representing a 900 percent increase in firearms-related officer deaths compared with this time last year.

EVERY Police Officer needs to remember how the Dems treat Law Enforcement and vote for whomever the Republican Candidate is in November.

It is sad that "politicians" like Clinton play the games they do. I am sure she has Secret Service protection but has she ever thought about them and what they represent. The liberals also see fit to remove firearms from the citizens but their security teams are armed. I pray that the citizens of this great Country of ours open their eyes to the direction we are heading and not elect liberals like Clinton or Sanders.

No surprise there. Hillary doesn't like cops. I am absolutely convinced of this. When she was campaigning in our city, she not only wouldn't pose for photos with officers, but even the children of one of our officers. Of course she took plenty of photos with all her supporters who were at the rally. Sanders is no friend of cops either. In his speech in our fair city, he actually assured the crowd that under his administration, young people, "often minority's," would be able to walk the streets without fear of "being murdered by the police." Looks like the democrats have conceded the blue vote in favor of the thug vote. By the way, Cruz, Rubio and Carson could not have been nicer to the police officers who protected them in our town. All three were real gentlemen who clearly support us.

This is only natural as Hillary and Bernie are desperately seeking the black vote and will pander and say anything to get their vote. And standing up for Law Enforcement would be the kiss of death for that to happen. I can only say that both of them are what I call a most vile and disgusting label to be placed on any person, they are "politicians".

What else can we expect from Clinton and BS? They're both racist and anti police. They've said so numerous times. Clinton, for one ought to be in prison. Sanders should be relegated to a nursing home.
