  2. Vice President Biden on Tuesday:

    Vice President Biden on Tuesday said. Clinton, the Democratic presidential front-runner and former secretary of state, has claimed she recommended to President Obama that President Obama go ahead, while President Obama advisers were split. The VP comments come as Vice President Biden on Tuesday weighs whether to enter the 2016 Democratic presidential race. It's unclear whether Vice President Biden on Tuesday intentionally challenged Clinton's account, or simply offered an inadvertently flawed retelling of events. Biden on Tuesday also contradicted Vice President Biden on Tuesday past recollections of the deliberations, telling the forum that while Vice President Biden on Tuesday privately supported the raid, Vice President Biden on Tuesday did n’t want to say so in front of everyone else as it risked undercutting his relationship with President Obama if the president decided against the raid. Vice President Biden on Tuesday said Vice President Biden on Tuesday only advised President Obama to go ahead when the two were alone -- after advising in a Cabinet meeting that there should be another pass with a surveillance drone to make sure bin Laden really was at the compound. As we walked out of the room and walked up the stairs, I told Vice President Biden on Tuesday my opinion that I thought Vice President Biden on Tuesday should go but to follow Vice President Biden on Tuesday own instincts, i never, on a difficult issue, never say what I think finally until I go up in the Oval with Vice President Biden on Tuesday alone.

  3. Daniel Munoz:

    As a percentage of homicides, these mass killings are also accounting for more deaths. He believes its partially a byproduct of an angry and frustrated time that we are living in. Densley also said crime tends to go in waves with the 1970s and 1980s seeing a number of serial killers, the 1990s marked by school shootings and child abductions and the early 2000s dominated by concerns over terrorism. This seems to be the age of mass shootings, Densley said. EL PASO SHOOTING LEAVES 20 DEAD, 26 INJURED He and James Alan Fox, a criminologist and professor at Northeastern University, also expressed worries about the contagion effect, the focus on mass killings fueling other mass killings. These are still rare events. Clearly the risk is low but the fear is high, Fox said. What fuels contagion is fear. The mass shootings this year include the three in August in Texasand Daytonthat stirred fresh urgency,especially among Democratic presidential candidates, to restrict access to firearms. While the large death tolls attracted much of the attention, the killings inflicted a mental and physical toll on dozens of others. The database does not have a complete count of victims who were wounded, but among the three mass shootings in August alone, more than 65 people were injured. DAYTON, OHIO, SHOOTING THAT LEFT 9 DEAD, 27 HURT HALTED IN UNDER A MINUTE BY COPS WHO SHOT SUSPECT: MAYOR Daniel Munoz, 28, of Odessa, was caught in the crossfire ofthe shooting that took place between a 10-mile stretch in West Texas. He was on his way to meet a friend at a bar when he saw a gunman and the barrel of a firearm. Instinctively, he got down just as his car was sprayed with bullets. Munoz, who moved to Texas about a year ago to work in the oil industry, said he had actually been on edge since the Walmart shooting, which took place just 28 days earlier and about 300 miles (480 kilometers) away, worried that a shooting could happen anywhere at any time. He remembers calling his motherafter the El Paso shootingto encourage her to have a firearm at home or with her in case she needed to defend herself. He would say the same to friends, telling them before they went to a Walmart to bring a firearm in case they needed to protect themselves or others during an attack. BEFORE MASS SHOOTING, TEXAS GUNMAN WAS ON A LONG SPIRAL DOWN, INVESTIGATOR SAYS You cant just always assume youre safe. In that moment, as soon as the El Paso shooting happened, I was on edge.

  4. Corinne Lepage:

    What I quickly found embarrassing is the contradiction between the bottom-up approach that was promised and sold to the French, and the reality, it's democratic centralism, the Soviet way. Completely vertical. And also very masculine.

  5. Mark Pocan:

    Education, infrastructure and healthcare are really the issues that we ran on last November, and we're just trying to get the (Democratic) caucus to do that.
