STORY: A show of support from mother's whose children were killed in police violence at the Democratic convention in Philadelphia, with Lucia McBath, the mother of Jordan Davis who was shot and killed for playing loud music, telling the DNC, "Hillary Clinton isn't afraid to say 'Black Lives Matter.'" She was joined by other mothers, including Geneva Reed-Veal whose daughter, Sandra Bland, was found dead in a Texas jail cell days after she was arrested following a minor traffic offense, an incident said by activists to be yet another example of police brutality toward minorities. Also supporting Clinton, Sybrina Fulton, mother of Trayvon Martin who was killed by George Zimmerman, a former neighborhood watch volunteer who was later acquitted in the fatal shooting Martin, an unarmed black teenager in 2013. "Hillary Clinton has the compassion and understanding to support grieving mothers, she has the courage to lead the fight for common sense gun legislation," Fulton said.
