The mother of a slain Philadelphia police officer and loved ones of two other fallen officers addressed the Democratic convention Thursday, calling for unity at a time of heightened tensions between law enforcement and civilians. That tension was underscored this week by the Philadelphia police union's rebuke of the Clinton campaign for not initially scheduling speaking time for fallen officers' families - and by words heard in the Wells Fargo Center during a moment of silence just before they spoke.

I'm looking forward to seeing Hillary Clinton make history when she's nominated for president this week at the Democratic National Convention. And I'm excited about the prospect of a Clinton presidency. Not just because I think Donald Trump is the wrong man for the job. But because Democrats and Republicans hate each other too much right now to come together - in Congress or in the town square. I think the impact of a female administration could get us playing nice again.

As Gov.

"I will retreat to the role of used-to-be," the governor said at a breakfast Thursday for the state's delegation, describing his role model for departing office as former President George W.

A Delaware County judge has booted a Folcroft police officer out of his courtroom - forever. District Judge Steven A. Sandone filed a court order to recuse himself from "any and all matters" in which Sgt. Christopher Eiserman is a party or witness, according to court documents. "It is ridiculous," said Robert Ruskowski, chief of police in Folcroft. Efforts to reach Sandone were not successful. A woman at his office in neighboring Darby hung up witout taking a message. According to the "Standards of Conduct of Magisterial District Judges," Sandone is within the law to disqualify himself in which his impartiality might be questioned including if the judge ". . . has a personal bias or prejudice concerning a party or a party's lawyer . . . " The situation developed after Allen Burton, 23, was arrested by county and Folcroft police on drug and weapons charges, said Ruskowski.
