At the Democratic National Convention next week in Philadelphia, family members of victims of police shootings are on the list of speakers. But there are no family members of police officers killed in the line of duty.

And the largest police union in Philadelphia is mad at Hillary Clinton, the Washington Times reports.


The speakers include Mothers of the Movement, a group that includes relatives of Eric Garner and Michael Brown.

A Clinton spokeswoman told a CBS Philadelphia affiliate: "We look forward to highlighting the courageous efforts of law enforcement with speakers at our convention."
