jim dunlap: too many nevada police officers have been killed in the last few years. the truth is, we make it too easy for criminals and the dangerously mentally ill to buy guns.
they get them at gun shows or online from strangers, so here's something we can do to honor the fallen: close the background check loophole. that will help prevent future cop killings. it works. in states that have closed the loophole, nearly half as many police officers have been shot and killed in the line of duty. background checks save lives.
i served under president bush and obama. i fought the taliban. i was asked to form a global coalition to counter isil. when someone makes the comment that they know more about
the islamic state or isil nerals, it implies a complete ignorance of the reality. but i believe secretary clinton really understands the threat that the islamic state poses to the united states and to the american people. and i believe she understands how to wield american power to ultimately defeat this threat and to keep us safe. i'm hillary clinton

three are expected to recover. but that video is dramatic. >> michelle: you can see they do hand over their stuff and she shoots at them for no reason. look at that. awful. a 16-year-old boy from utah is in critical condition after police say that he was shot by a 14-year-old as school was letting out for the day. police say the boy was shot twice during a confrontation. this middle school near salt lake city. it's not clear what the argument was about. but authorities say the 14-year-old suspect is a student at that middle school. he the shooting. >> krystal: secretary of defense ash carter announcing california national guard members will not have to repay bonuses. the initial move to collect the bonuses handed out ten years ago sparked outrage. the pentagon started collecting bonuses from more than 6,000 soldiers who it was was overpaid to enlist and serve in iraq and afghanistan. they say the california national guard improvely offered bonuses

ad from the american grant network for guaranteed government grants, watch out. new york postal inspectors began investigating the business after receiving numerous complaints from consumers. their investigation led to a man named steven young who operated several businesses. >> mr. young said for anywhere from 1995 to 24 sflooif was 100 percent guarantee they would receive grants. received the book of so-called available grants, they realized the offer was not as advertised. >> when the individuals got the grant book and they looked smat of the grants, they realized that there were requirements needed for them to meet the qualifications of the grant. >> marie: despite being guaranteed 100 percent satisfaction, consumers who asked for refunds received nothing. there were more than 500 formal complaints and $14,000 in losses. postal inspectors ordered
desist order. but consumers should remember to always research any company offering deals that appear too good to be true. >> the thing that customers should remember is nothing in life is free. >> marie: postal inspectors want to warn consumers about another version involving callers who claim to be associated with the government. after confirming your name and mailing address they request the name of your bank, routing number and account number to withdraw a bogus processing fee. of course, there is no grant. with this rip-off alert, i'm marie mortera. >> michelle: good information there. there's a town in massachusetts whose really trying to take drastic measures to cut down on halloween pranks. the question is, is this going to work. >> krystal: we'll see. it is a rather odd way that police are cracking down on halloween night pranks. that you get more treats than tricks.
