David Axelrod: DNC Should Have Honored Police Widows

After mothers of black victims of police-involved fatal shootings spoke at the Democratic National Convention Tuesday night, CNN commentator David Axelrod said widows of slain police officers should have been invited too.

Axelrod, a former adviser to President Barack Obama, called it a "missed opportunity" for a "healing moment."

Three of "The Mothers of the Movement" – including Sybrina Fulton, the mother of Trayvon Martin, who was fatally shot in Florida by neighborhood watchman George Zimmerma in 2012 – spoke about efforts to prevent future confrontations, and their support of Hillary Clinton

Afterward, CNN anchor Michael Smerconish said Democrats should have featured at least one widow of a fallen officer.

Axelrod agreed.
