According to the convention committee, the other "Mothers of the Movement" participating include Gwen Carr, mother of Eric Garner; Sybrina Fulton, mother of Trayvon Martin; Lucia McBath, mother of Jordan Davis; Lezley McSpadden, mother of Michael Brown; Cleopatra Pendleton-Cowley, mother of Hadiya Pendleton; and Geneva Reed-Veal, mother of Sandra Bland.For obvious reasons, the mothers of the following haven't been invited: Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens, Information Officer Sean Smith, and CIA operatives and former Navy SEALS Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods.
As well, no grief-stricken parent will be speaking on behalf of Kate Steinle, the young woman who was shot and killed by a Mexican criminal last year in the "sanctuary city" of San Francisco.
Update: Don't think they'll be showing this one at the convention:
Unfortunately, no "Fathers of the Movement" will be in attendance either; they can't get parole.
Funny, but also tragic and problematic.
