During a press conference with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, President Obama talked about the situation in Baltimore, showing no sympathy for the rioters, saying those who stole from businesses and burned buildings should be treated as criminals. He also mentioned how there appears to be too many instances where police officers interacting with individuals, mainly African-American and often poor, “in ways that raise troubling questions.” The new Attorney General, Loretta Lynch, is also reportedly looking at the Baltimore situation.

Bid day for Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, who meets with President Obama on Tuesday before a State Dinner Tuesday night, followed by a speech to a joint session of Congress on Wednesday. Japan’s economy has had some problems of late, and much of the discussion will concern that, plus a possible thawing in relations between Japan and China, the two largest economies in that region.

In an effort to spare his life, lawyers for Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar are trying to show that his older brother, Tamerlan, was more radicalized, and more responsible for the attack. At the penalty phase of his trial Monday, they called a Muslim clergyman who testified that Tamerlan had become very angry during a service when the clergyman compared Martin Luther King to the Prophet Muhammad, calling the clergyman a hypocrite during the service. They proceeded to detail other incidents where Tamerlan displayed similar manic behavior.
