Law enforcement, activists to meet with Obama at White House

Behind him stood a group of officers, a racially diverse church choir, and a host of local officials and prominent individuals such as Police Chief David Brown and ex-President George W. Bush, the Daily Mail reports.

He lamented that Obama turned the Dallas Police Memorial "into another attempt at gun control", but made clear that he was not surprised by it. The event was streamed online, which allow the nation to watch the handsome speeches and songs delivered during the touching ceremony. "It is as if the deepest fault lines of our democracy have suddenly been exposed, perhaps even widened".

Undaunted, the president urged Americans to cast aside such doubt and replace it with faith in the nation's institutions and progress.

"I thought that was very ignorant for our chief, however his emotions was to say that to a community", Alexander said. We should - when we hear a friend describe him by saying that "Whatever he cooked, he cooked enough for everybody, ' that should sound familiar to us, that maybe he wasn't so different than us, so that we can, yes, insist that his life matters".

Pointing wistfully to the capricious winds of politics that ended his career abruptly, he said: "I was the future once". On July 13, David Cameron stepped down as Britain's Prime Minister , handing over the reins to Theresa May.

She stated, "These horrific attacks and their viral images dismantle the African American community's ability to feel safe in this country".

We are not Pollyanna enough to say one speech can right the course of a nation. "Protecting us", he said.

Another said: "George Bush laughing and dancing during the Dallas cop memorial while standing next to the Obamas is white privilege on hallucinogens". "Too often we're asking police to man the barricades in communities that have been forgotten by all of us for way too long", the president said last week, citing inadequate schools and a lack of economic opportunity. "And this has strained our bonds of understanding and common goal", he added. In Louisiana, crimes against police officers and emergency responders are now considered hate crimes - a part of the law that should be reserved for the truly marginalized, to those who are systematically excluded from power, not those with the power to wield their profession as a weapon. Instead, officers chatted and took selfies with the demonstrators.

Personally, Im glad to live in a country where there is gun control. The president positioned himself as both an ally of law enforcement and a sympathizer of the Black Lives Matter movement. It's a posture neither side has completely accepted. But until Tuesday, they said, the president had not shown that same outpouring whenever an officer has died in the line of duty.

'Turkish government has closed its airspace to military aircraft'
It borders Syria and has given the USA access to some of its bases , allowing the U.S.to conduct more airstrikes against ISIS. In 2015 Turkey agreed to let the U.S. fly military strikes out of the base against jihadi militants in Syria and Iraq.

Biden also said some of the police organizations voiced concerns for the safety of their members.

Back to Dallas. I found it heartwarming that after the tragedy, Dallas police officers suddenly found themselves the recipient of hugs - yes, hugs - from grateful citizens who all of a sudden seem to grasp just how hard and how unsafe a police officer's work is, and to appreciate the fact they are around and willing to protect us from ourselves for a pittance of what they and their families deserve. Sparked by the deaths of two men, Alton Sterling and Philando Castile, two fathers who had their murders by police broadcast for all the world to see in horrific detail.

Fox News host Bill O'Reilly, for example, chastised Obama for "raising the specter of slavery and Jim Crow" and fueling the "grievance industry".

President Barack Obama returns from a shortened visit to Spain, as he walks across the South Lawn of the White House in Washington, Sunday, July 10, 2016. "Weeping may endure for a night but I'm convinced joy comes in the morning", the President said. "I've seen how inadequate words can be in bringing about lasting change". I'd like to conclude with a word to the families, the spouses, and especially the children of the fallen.
