    Massachusetts attorney general Maura Healey (D.) on Tuesday refused to denounce the violent riots occurring nationwide, likening them to the purifying effects of a forest fire. "Yes, America is burning, but that's how forests grow," Healey said in a speech delivered to the Boston Chamber of Commerce. Healey, who is also the co-chair of the Democratic Attorneys General Association, repeated her remarks in a tweet later the same day, adding that Americans need to "seize the opportunity" to rid the country of "institutionalized racism," which she blamed for the violence.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said Trump is "ripping" the country apart. "Tear-gassing peaceful protesters without provocation so that the president could pose for photos outside a church dishonors every value that faith teaches us,” Pelosi and Schumer said. "The President’s continued fanning of the flames of discord, bigotry and violence is cowardly, weak and dangerous." Father...

    Joe Biden on Monday suggested that police forces could train officers to shoot attackers in the legs in order to reduce potential fatalities. There is “the idea that instead of standing there and teaching a cop when there’s an unarmed person, coming at him with a knife or something, to shoot him in the leg instead of in the heart,” Biden said. “There’s a lot of different things [policies] that can change.”

"It’s disturbing that Joe Biden’s team would financially support the mayhem that is hurting innocent people and...
