"On the wall. A member of the Vietnam veterans memorial fund tells our news partners at NBC four that this isn't the first time the memorial has been vandalized. But in the last three or four years, we've had just a significant number of damaging incidents. Either accidental or malicious in that. But certainly we'd like to nip it in the bud and make certain that the sanctity that's offered here. And the sacrifice that's represented here is measured and valued by everyone. Police don't believe this case is related to the vandalism at the Washington Monument, though. The Vietnam veterans memorial fund is working with the U.S. park police and the investigation, that directory will be replaced as soon as possible. Attacks on homeless men in the district and in New York City terrified people who live on the streets, and now a man whom police say carried out those attacks has been indicted. After hearing the facts of the case a grand jury delivered a 17 count indictment against Gerald Brevard the 30s, the D.C. man accused in 5 attacks on homeless men that launched a nationwide manhunt in March, one of those attacks claimed the life of 54 to Morgan Holmes of D.C.. The indictment included charges for first degree murder and several assault charges. The grand jury also finding the attack for so heinous that he was charged with aggravated circumstances and also bias related hate crimes because the attacks targeted homeless men. The charges here are only for the D.C. cases Brevard faces life in prison if convicted. Mike Morello WTO news. As the Washington national season comes to an end, a dispute between the ballpark and the district threatens to close the park to future games, concerts and other events. But we are learning about a plan that could help resolve the conflict. We're really seeking closure here. That's how Allison prince and attorney for events D.C., which owns Nats park, described the situation under an agreement with the city events D.C. is supposed to develop 46,000 ft² of commercial and retail space at the ballpark, but events D.C. says a better plan now is to develop significantly less space, 17,000 ft², and prince says they'd be open to accepting a set timeline. The new concept is putting in a deadline for building out that retail space. The proposal will be taken up by D.C. zoning commission. Coming up here, traffic and weather and then two lawsuits are resolved over teacher sex abuse allegations at a local high school, ten O 7

"There's been a decline in the number of law enforcement professionals who died in the line of duty in the first half of this year compared to last year. The national law enforcement officers memorial fund said a 129 federal state county, municipal military campus and tribal officers have died through June 30th, and that's a 31% decrease from last year. Locally, two officers died in Maryland three in Virginia, none from the district. Meantime, the memorial fund also said there's been an 18% increase in the number of firearms related deaths from 28 in the first half of last year to 33 in the same period this year. The house has approved a bill expanding benefits for veterans who became ill after being exposed to toxic substances during their military service. And the will flips the script, removing from veterans, the burden of proving that their exposure to toxic elements resulted in illness, including asthma and cancer. That can take years to develop, the bill now goes to the Senate or approval as expected. The Food and Drug Administration authorized a COVID-19 vaccine from Gaithersburg based pharmaceutical company novavax, CBS medical contributor doctor David agus says this one consists of two doses for people who are 18 and older. It's important to note that this is a different kind of vaccine. The way the RNA vaccines work is RNA is injected into the body. And then that RNA is made into spike protein and the humans we make an immune response against us by protein, but these vaccines are different. In this case, the RNA for the spike protein is injected into insect cells and to moth cells in those moth cells make the spike protein spike protein is purified and then it's injected as part of the vaccine. Now it's not a done deal just yet, the CDC also needs to sign off and the first meeting of its advisory committee takes place next Tuesday

If you want to donate, we're going to donate money and I was really pleased to read that there's a couple of funeral homes that are actually in uvalde that are not going to charge the families. And that almost brought me to tears because as you know, funeral costs are so expensive and to have to do that with people that are very low income and can't afford it. So bless you for doing that as a funeral home director to take the, you know, the cost off of this is just incredible.

"Even in those instances there were people that she was close with that decided that they weren't sticking around because maybe maybe cancer could be caught maybe maybe I don't WanNa be with somebody who's going to be a Downer and you know it's no different here the difference here that makes it even more difficult is exactly what you said the individual could be suffering almost as badly as my. Mother may have been, but they look perfectly fine on the outside and that's the biggest and the hardest thing to delineate and make that distinction between the two and that's when if you see somebody and you see something like that and something's off, it's so important vital that you ask them. Hey, everything. Okay. You know are you okay and there's nothing wrong with that. You know to make that approach to somebody and try to extend your hand because it might be something that ultimately gets them out of where they are and ultimately saved their life. Young I think people really underestimate the power of a simple text that says, Hey, how're you? I'm thinking of you something like that or like how are you doing like? Let me know if you need anything just reaching out to people who? Might be suffering or might be on the brink. I, think just you know even a simple. Thing to reach out like that can do a lot of good and I know when I've been in depressive episodes just getting text from a friend be like, hey, how're you doing I'm thinking of you it's like Oh. Wow. They're actually taking the time and effort to reach out to me even though I know I'm not pleasant to be around right now and that can mean a lot for people because depression and anxiety and mental health issues can also poison your brain in a way to think no one wants to be around me I. Don't WanNa be around me and so kind of self isolate in and so. I think for people on the outside you know reaching out trying to be supportive as best as you can those all can go a long way to helping other people a hundred percent I made my wife and I had through the Keith Milano Memorial Fund which we set up, which is housed at AFS p. basically raise money in his name and the money stays at AFSPC.

But at the same time, you know what you're better off asking and looking silly the not asking it all and waking up one day and hearing that something happened to that person.

"To Jim Ryan, Jim. We've talked many times on this show the price that first responders pay, including being separated from their families and all kinds of other stories, and now we're leading to a statistic. That's not not really good, Jim. No one really is that by any measure, this is not good. You look at either the officer down Memorial page or at the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund, you'll see that dozens of police officers have died this year. Interestingly, looking looking first at the, uh, the officer down memorial page It says that 120 officers have been killed in the line of duty this year. Those are of course shares deputies, state troopers, prison guards, police helps it all sorts of those first line responders. Compared with 65 who've died at the national law enforcement officers. Well, the difference. Of course here is that the memorial page is including covert 19 deaths. Out with the people in charge of the other sites say that you know, by the end of this year, undoubtedly covert 19 deaths will be the leading cause of on duty deaths among police officers, and already it looks as though it's going that way. Covert 19 accounts for 52 Line of duty deaths among police officers, compared with 29 from gunfire. So already it appears that Corona virus is the leading cause of on duty deaths of police officers in this country. It's remarkable. How have we not heard about this? Because there are folks that air they're trying to get people to wear masks until you look at young people are at risk. And if this is true, these air, fairly young, healthy people. Why is this not more commonplace knowledge? You know, That's a great question. I think that part of it. I mean, the Ah Memorial Fund, the the national Law Enforcement officers more fund is a little more conservative conservative about this wait until the covert 19 has been verified that the Corona that the coroner's report or medical examiner's report verifies that this is a covert 19 death, But in many cases, it's quite well known that that's what the officer Well that he tested positive He or she was at home because covered 19 eventually expired from it. So you know, it looks as though and then again these cases and there could be many, many more than this look to be on a face to be covert 19 related deaths, and I think that that's what accounts for the difference here. No one is looking at a little more cautiously, saying, Let's wait till these cases are verified. Now the other one keeps a daily, longer, tragic daily long that's updated within hours of an officer's death and yet account for the covert 19. Jim Ryan ABC News in Dallas, Texas. You know, these cops have gone through so much the last couple of decades this last decade heroin, so they're they're bringing people back to life on a daily basis, sometimes multiple times in the days that are dealing with People that are assaulting them in the street. I'm thinking and now we've got cove in 19. They probably thought when they were signing up to be a police officer, they wouldn't die of a pandemic. But I wonder if the protests the number of protests that had that they have had to work these long hours. Where their immune system are down, and they're exhausted and they're still out there, battling on the front lines with these protesters wonder if that has anything to do with the gym. Well, potentially, I mean, being with any crowd, of course, is going to expose you to Corona virus, Potentially. But I think that responding to those things, the officers of other I've seen a big year. Demonstrations and protests around the country, whether they turn out violent or that it's just a crowd control matter. The officers are wearing masks a lot of cases. Obviously, they're wearing face shields as well. SWAT officers In daily interactions. Then you may have noticed this too. You see, an officer was pulled somebody over a sheriff's deputy. You're a trooper or the local police officer. Very often. They're not wearing that. Neither is the motorist, obviously, in most cases, so I think that daily exposure that daily you contact with the public may account for much of this as the unusual event of a big demonstration. Now a skeptic would say that there's number of manipulation happening that police officers maybe died in the line of duty, but they don't want to make it look like there's an attack on police officers, but he was asymptomatic and covert positive. So let's say he died of Cove. It Are we confident that this was indeed illness that brought on death? Well, you know, I think if the officer down Memorial page has any sort of agenda, it would be not in inflating these numbers but making sure that they're accurate. And so, yeah, I think that the news stories very often. That's what they based a lot of this on his new stories around the country. That relate to these police officers in the individual officers and each name on the list carries with it An account of what happened with this officer. So yeah, I don't know. I don't know if they're playing with the numbers in some way, but I don't. I don't think there's much of an agenda to do it. And again, there are two organizations. They're keeping tabs on these things, too. Thank you for your time. Jim Ryan, stay safe in Dallas and see where Texas is. You guys were trying to get back on the road, and it's It's a long haul for you guys. So good luck down there, Jim. Thanks a lot. Appreciate it. You got it. Texas.

I've been thinking a lot about using although it's. This platform I have to acknowledge the historical and ongoing racism, oppression and violence that black people experience in the US in Canada and all over the world. I support the black lives matter movement, and what to be an ally that actively promotes anti-racism. What can I do or we do as white people to support anti-racism? I've been doing some research and here some tangible things that we can do. We can listen to the experiences of people of Color. We can educate ourselves on the ongoing struggles and systematic barriers that they face. We can donate to causes like the Minnesota. Freedom Fund or George Floyd's Memorial Fund. There are also other bail funds in major US cities. We can sign petitions. We can demand justice. We can keep having these conversations in our own circles. We can amplify voices that are often not included, and we can intervene and call out microaggressions, cultural appropriation, comments or jokes when we witnessed them. It may be uncomfortable, but I challenge you like I'm challenging myself to lean into the discomfort and get real about our complicity and complacency in weight supremacy I.

another round of staggering unemployment numbers six point six million more Americans filed for unemployment last week that is nearly seventeen million total who filed in three weeks and is unemployment spikes Republicans and Democrats in Congress cannot agree on how to help the Americans they represent today Senate Democrats rejected a GOP proposal to send additional money to small businesses Democrats say they agree more money should be available to taxpayers but lots of questions remain about where the first three hundred fifty billion dollars they allocated are headed well joining me now is senator John Thune a Republican from South Dakota he's among the highest ranking Republicans in the Senate we've caught him on the line from South Dakota senator welcome back to All Things Considered thanks my ladies always nice to be with you glad to have you with us so we had house speaker Nancy Pelosi on the show last night laying out what she wants what Democrats want which is you know is to include an additional two hundred and fifty billion dollars for hospitals states and local governments and I just want to play you what you had to say much you respond this is her speaking about the Senate legislation as it currently stands the bill that they put forth will not get unanimous support in the house it just won't listen to soon if this is dead in the water in the house and if Americans are desperate why not agree to a five hundred billion dollar package well I mean I just think that the amid the ongoing crisis in which we get told you know businesses and workers are clearly struggling I think that and disappointed that the Democrat leadership blocked what is critical funding to provide additional relief to those who need the most to the point that they're making about other at why they had other dollars to other programs we've already authorized dollars of the programs none of which have been distributed yet the first hospital dollars you're actually going out to date so we don't know what we're going to be we don't know what's working what's not working what we do know is that the the paycheck protection program which is the program designed to assist small businesses and help them keep their workers employed by getting them hundred percent guaranteed forgivable loans if they use them to keep their employees employed is running out of money and so this is a bipartisan program it's one they actually support and I think we need to we need to get past any kind of partisan delay tactics as in people's really don't want to see that is there a risk so if Republicans seem to be the ones advocating for less money at a time when many Americans feel financially desperate well I think that that and I don't think it's a question of less money I think we know already I guess we've got you know we have checks going out of their bills presence talking about another round of those checks we've plucked up the unemployment insurance accounts at all the states it is less money to I mean the Democrats want to spend an additional two hundred fifty billion dollar sang date date they do but they wanted bill Potts if they want to put it in our areas where we've already allocated huge amounts of money hundred fifty billion to state local governments a hundred billion over a hundred billion to hospitals and that money has been distributed yet and so they're saying we want to add additional to this without even knowing what the media's and all are or were simply saying as you know it's what these dollars get out there and then let's figure out and says what the need is and we're coming out of our members are more than happy we're gonna do whatever we need to respond to this to get folks through it where's the discuss next this is Jim out of money at stake upwards of well upwards of two trillion already passed the president has removed the inspector general tasked with overseeing how it is spent Congress can't convene to hold oversight hearings where is the accountability well I mean there will be a person that steps in inspector general obviously there's not doubt that position is not going to be vacant it is a concern is that that inspector general was dismissed well I mean I think we other members of the house and Senate might not always agree with the present personnel decisions but at the end of the day these are all people that serve at his pleasure and we want to make sure that that position filled it's filled with somebody who is a professional and not not political insult bodies they were paying a lot of attention to that in some of our members of our expressed concerns about that move in a letter and will will we will do the oversight center Grassley is four letter on there asking for an explanation about Cision and it Romney says Tarun Susan Collins it's you know it's a number of Republicans correct that's right yes so we'll we'll we'll do the oversight that's our role as our job done it will try to get some answers one election question if I may before I let you go what needs to be done to make sure that every eligible American can vote that every eligible American has access to a ballot in November you've given the chaos that we saw unfolding in Wisconsin this week well I guess we'll have we will have a better sense of the November election the general election the ways where there are lots of primary elections are happening in the next month or two and those are I thank state by state they're figuring out what's the best way to make sure close elections get conducted yeah but you know we have invested a lot of money with the states to make sure that they can conduct elections that are that are clean that are free from interference and my assumption is that by the time the fall rolls around and you know we're getting serious about a general election that somebody in this country washable they'll have the opportunity to vote I suppose my question is should Congress included voting access measures in any of these relief bill states that we are sending to pass well I think there there has been money added to the the resources that were putting out there they were pumping out there for the states to make sure that they can conduct elections and they have all the necessary equipment in the end security measures at cetera to protect our election system and keep it keep it free from interference but I don't know that in you know in terms of the specific legislation last couple weeks it has been designed to response which is the greater the crisis that there are measures in there other than additional funding for the state we have I think a lot of sound very capable of states who are focused on making sure that they have good solid clean elections where everybody has an opportunity to cast your vote senator John soon Republican from South Dakota senator soon thank you thanks bye shooting early one of the many open questions about the new coronavirus is whether this season will affect its transmission the worst outbreak.
