HONOLULU - US President Barack Obama called Philadelphia Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey on Sunday to express his outrage over the recent killings of two New York City Police officers, White House spokesman Eric Schultz said.

Obama recently named Ramsey co-chair of a task force to examine policing practices across the United States following a Missouri grand jury's decision not to indict a white police officer in Ferguson, Missouri for killing an unarmed black teenager.
