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. Last night, the president hosted a State Dinner with the Japanese prime minister, who addresses Congress Wednesday.

The curfew was back in effect for Tuesday night. Another Orioles baseball game was postponed, and they’ll play Wednesday’s game in an empty stadium before the team heads to play their weekend home games at a ballpark in Florida. While at the time of this email things were calm, clearly the city is restless, and worried that more violence could break out at any time. Jim is in Baltimore, and will fill you in on how things went during the overnight, and how they appear Wednesday morning.

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. Japan and the U.S. also announced Monday a bolstering of their strategic alliance, both militarily as well as into space and cyberspace.

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.

Rioters plunged part of Baltimore into chaos Monday, torching a pharmacy, setting police cars ablaze and throwing bricks at officers hours after thousands mourned the man who died from a severe spinal injury he suffered in police custody. Seven officers were hurt, some with broken bones, and one was unresponsive. And this was all before sundown. The governor declared a state of emergency and called in the National Guard to restore order. The Baltimore Orioles cancelled their baseball game. Downtown was essentially shut down for the night. Whether things settle down is anybody’s guess, but Mary Bruce is there and will tell you.
