Hillary Clinton: Strange Way To Address Gun Violence

posted on November 4, 2015

It’s interesting that Hillary Clinton would meet with the mothers of Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown in the name of “gun violence.”

“Grateful to spend time today with mothers who have lost a child to violence and turned their grief into a national call to action,” Clinton tweeted. Interestingly, neither death meets any traditional definition of “gun violence.” Brown was killed after attempting to take police officer Darren Wilson’s gun from him, then charging him. Martin was killed while banging neighborhood watch participant George Zimmerman’s head against a sidewalk. A grand jury elected not to charge Wilson, and Zimmerman was found not guilty by a jury of his peers.

Even worse, Huffington Post readers will never know those truths. In its report on the Clinton meeting, the author wrote: “Brown, 18, was shot and killed by police officer Darren Wilson last year in Ferguson, Mo, after a scuffle. In 2012, Martin, 17, was shot and killed by George Zimmerman, a Florida neighbor of his father’s fiancée, for appearing ‘suspicious.’”
