Trump to order flags flown at half-staff to honor Capital Gazette victims

The United States flag is lowered at half-staff at the White House in Washington, Tuesday, July 3, 2018, to honor the victims killed in the June 28th shooting at the Capital Gazette newspaper in Annapolis, Maryland.

The Australian Mayor of Annapolis says he is disappointed US President Donald Trump declined to order American flags be lowered to half-mast across the US to honour the five employees shot dead at The Capital Gazette newspaper.

The White House said the initial request was denied because it did not come directly from the Mayor.

The World Cup is into the knockout stage, and every match will end with someone going home. In defeat I feel even more proud of being Spanish'.

Suspect Jarrod Ramos was taken into custody Thursday afternoon after he allegedly stormed the Annapolis newspaper's office with a shotgun, fatally shooting four journalists and a sales assistant. He has been charged with five counts of first-degree murder, according to court records.

Buckley made his initial request through Maryland's congressional delegation.

Police said that after a search of his Laurel apartment Thursday, they found evidence, which they did not detail, showing that he had planned the attack. The spokesman said: "We can not get into the specifics of the letter but the wording mirrors [his] social media rants". "He sees these murders as an attack on the freedom of the Press as guaranteed by the First Amendment of the United States Constitution". It's especially disheartening considering Trump constantly attacks the press.

Ronaldo nearly had a chance at goal on 20 minutes but a timely clearance by Gimenez six yards was enough to keep Ronaldo at bay. We will have to work collectively to try to contain him, in order to try to limit the effect he can have".

Presidents usually lower federal flags following the death of former presidents and service members, or other national tragedies. "It's just as important as any other tragedy", Buckley said, according to The Baltimore Sun. He said the day after the shooting journalists shouldn't fear being violently attacked while doing their job.

By comparison, the shooting at the Annapolis newsroom killed five.

Cuomo acknowledged that this thesis makes Trump sound "extraordinarily petty and callous", but he also noted that the president continues to mock Sen. She also said that Trump approved the request "as soon as" it reached his ears. "But as much as I'm going to try to articulate how traumatizing it is to be hiding under your desk, you don't know until you're there and you feel helpless".
