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.

"The families of police officers grieve for their losses as well, and it would have been a healing moment to get everyone on the same stage to say stop the violence," he said.

His remark was posted by Mediaite.
