No White House representative at Brian Moore’s funeral

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 were sent by Obama to Freddie Gray’s funeral.  There is controversy about Gray’s death and particularly the charges brought against the police, but there’s no lack of evidence of Gray’s long history of crime and arrests.  Johnson and Foster also attended Michael Brown’s funeral along with Marlon Marshall, also of Public Engagement.  Brown had just committed a robbery and assault when he was shot resisting an officer.  As of the latest reports from New York, no one representing the president was sent to officer Brian Moore’s funeral.  Moore was murdered by a thug and has probably saved many black lives by being a NYPD officer, because black lives matter.!
