Hillary Clinton's and Donald Trump's responses to the weekend bombings in New York and New Jersey, as well as a mass stabbing in Minnesota, were markedly different.

Trump on Monday morning called on law enforcement to embrace increased racial and religious profiling as they sought out terrorism suspects, while Clinton said it's "crucial that we continue to build up trust between law enforcement and Muslim-American communities."

It was the night of the small-screen giants. And none stood taller at the 2016 Emmys than the HBO juggernauts Game of Thrones and Veep, which won for best drama and comedy series, respectively. The People v. O.J. Simpson also won the Emmy for outstanding limited series.

Game of Thrones and VEEP may have pulled off repeat wins at Sunday's Emmy Awards, but there was also plenty of room for fresh faces in the winner's circle.

The head wrap was brilliant blue. It mirrored the applique on the long yellow bodice of the strapless gown and was echoed in the shoes and handbag.

CHICAGO  — Chicago police announced Sunday that they will expand the use of body cameras to include all officers on patrol by 2018.

Numbers of body cameras will increase by several thousand within the next two years so that every officer on patrol has access to the wallet-size cameras, Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson said.

"This expansion is a win-win for the public and for officers," he said, adding that their use should improve accountability and help build community trust.

An assailant at a mall in St. Cloud, Minn., stabbed at least nine people before the suspect was shot dead by an off-duty police officer, authorities said.

Police say he was "reportedly wearing a private security uniform" and began attacking shoppers at Crossroads Center just after 8 p.m., as Minnesota Public Radio's Tim Nelson told our Newscast unit. "Police said that the attacks occurred in several places in the mall," he added.
