After Deputies Were Injured In Compton Shooting, Trump Talks Up Death Penalty For People Who Kill Police (CBS LA)

At President Donald Trump’s first indoor rally since June on Sunday, he called for the death penalty for people who kill police officers.

The comments came one day after two Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department deputies were shot and injured in Compton.

“We also believe that if you murder a police officer you should receive the death penalty,” Trump said at his Nevada rally. [Read More]

Biden calls Trump a “climate arsonist,” warns of wildfire threat to suburbs (Axios)

Joe Biden on Monday called President Trump a “climate arsonist” and warned that another four years of Trump’s policies would expose suburbs to more deadly wildfires.

Why it matters: Biden’s speech addressing the record-setting wildfires in the West sought to cast Trump — who rejects consensus climate science — as a threat to the safety and livelihoods of people nationwide, rather than just an environmental issue. [Read More]

Remote regrets: Most telecommuting Americans working longer hours, more stressed (StudyFinds)

Working from home is supposed to be easier than a daily commute to the office, but a new survey of 2,000 remote-working Americans is challenging that narrative. In all, 65% of respondents report working longer remote hours these days then they ever did while sitting in a workspace. Similarly, 56% are feeling more stressed than ever before due to all the demands that come along with remote work.

For all of the annoyances that come along with commuting to work each day, a physical work location firmly establishes a barrier between work and play. When working from home, however, that line tends to blur. Perhaps that’s why nearly 70% of respondents are struggling to maintain a healthy work-life balance.[Read More]

Former Florida gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum (D) on Monday told daytime talk show host Tamron Hall that he identifies as bisexual.

“To be very honest with you, when you didn’t ask the question, you put it out there is whether or not I identify as gay. And the answer is I don’t identify as gay, but I do identify as bisexual, and that is something that I have never shared publicly before,” Gillum told Hall, a former NBC “Today” co-host, on Monday.

Arlington County Bans Firearms In Government Buildings And Parks (DCIST)

The Arlington County Board voted unanimously on Saturday to ban guns and ammunition in all government buildings, parks, and events with county-issued permits.

The vote stems from a new state law that lets localities set their own rules on whether guns should be permitted on public property. It was one of a slew of new gun laws passed by the Democratic majority in the General Assembly earlier this year.

The vote in Arlington followed a public hearing in July where dozens of residents testified about the ordinance. [Read More]

Shooting of L.A. deputies new flashpoint in a ‘tinderbox moment’ (LA Times)

The video showed a shooting that shocked the conscience: a cold-blooded attempt to kill two Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies at close range in Compton. Immediately, unequivocal condemnations flooded in from law enforcement officials, city leaders and the nation’s most prominent politicians.

President Trump called for the unknown shooter to receive the death penalty. Trump’s opponent in the November presidential election, former Vice President Joe Biden, called for the gunman to face “the full brunt of the law.” [Read More]
