As Instapundit points out in comparing Obama’s actions vis-à-vis police, Obama honored Freddie Gray — who, according to CNN, had over 20 criminal cases filed against him before his death in police custody — by sending Cabinet Secretary Broderick Johnson, chair of the Obama administration’s My Brother’s Keeper Task Force; Heather Foster, an adviser in the White House Office of Public Engagement; and Elias Alcantara from the Office of Intergovernmental Affairs to his funeral.
The Washington Post reported Obama sent three government officials to Michael Brown’s funeral: Johnson and two officials who worked in the White House Office of Public Engagement, Marlon Marshall and Heather Foster. Brown robbed a convenience store before his fatal encounter with Officer Darren Wilson.
Both Gray and Brown were black.
Yet at the funeral on Friday for Officer Brian Moore, 25, a white NYPD officer who was cold-bloodedly murdered by a black man, Obama sent no one, according to New York 1, despite the fact that tens of thousands of uniformed officers stood in formation outside the church and hundreds of others attended the funeral inside.
