Michael Brown’s mother, Lezley McSpadden, is set to speak at the Democratic National Convention.
Michael Brown tried to kill a cop.

How did anyone think this was a good idea? Michael Brown robbed a convenience store, attacked a cop, and reached for the cop’s gun. The U.S. Department of Justice and a grand jury both found that Officer Darren Wilson had no choice but to defend himself. The popular meme “Hands up, don’t shoot” was a lie.
In response to the horrific Baton Rouge shooting that left three police officers dead, Hillary Clinton issued the following statement: “We must all stand together to reject violence and strengthen our communities.”
Yes, Hillary. We should.
@HillaryClinton Want unity? Disinvite Michael Brown's mom from speaking at convention. Her son tried to kill a cop/was rushing cop when shot

Michael Brown’s mother has a history of making inflammatory anti-cop statements. After two cops were shot in Ferguson last March, she was positively elated at the news.
“Woke up in a GREAT MOOD this morning. 2 Cops got Shot in FERGUSON lastnight. You ant seen sh** yet, wait till this SUMMER,” she tweeted.
She also commented on Facebook, “If my FAM woulda got JUSTICE in August maybe those two cops wouldn’t have got shot LAST Night…”
It got worse: “F*** THEM 2 COPS..DON’T GOT NO SYMPATHY FOR THEM OR THEY FAMILIES…Aint no FUN when the Rabbit got the GUN.”
This is the person that the Democratic Party wants to represent their platform. She’ll appear on the night celebrating Hillary’s “lifetime of fighting for children and families.” Exactly whose children and families are you fighting for, Hillary? Clearly not cops’ children. Clearly not cops’ families.

The Democratic Party has chosen to side with anti-cop extremists–people whose rhetoric has incited violence against law enforcement across the country.
Actions have consequences. This is not a game.
