FROM THIS EPISODE

Last week’s deadly violence has escalated the tension between advocates for Black Lives Matter and some ardent supporters of local police. Two killings of black men by police officers produced videos the Washington Post calls, “too graphic to absorb but impossible not to watch.”

The killing of five officers by a black sniper has inflamed passions from the streets to the halls of Congress. We’ll get updates from Baton Rouge and Dallas, and we’ll look at the prospects for bringing the nation together in the midst of a bitterly divisive presidential campaign.

Also, Bernie Sanders on the verge of endorsing Hillary Clinton.

And last night, demonstrators were peacefully assembled on a private homeowner’s lawn when police in riot gear pushed them into the street and then arrested them. Reporter Bryn Stole was there for The Advocate.

Sanders Wins Party Platform Concessions 8 MIN, 48 SEC

Bernie Sanders is scheduled to appear with Hillary Clinton at a rally tomorrow, the result of a series of meetings that went from morning until night on Friday and Saturday in Orlando. Sanders is finally expected to endorse Clinton after a weekend of hard-fought compromises over the Democratic platform.
