Police told Q13 News they are on alert, but will not stray from their mission. It must seem to officers that they can do no right in the eyes of the people they work to serve and protect. Kennedy was assassinated in 1963. A total of 12 police officers and two civilians were shot during the attack, Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings said.

Among services providers, retailers boosted payrolls by nearly 30,000, while employment in health care climbed 58,400. Economists say the deceleration is normal given the relatively advanced age of the economy's recovery from the 2007-09 recession, with the labor market now near full employment.
Tesla delivered just 14,370 vehicles in the second quarter, below the 17,000 originally forecast, according to figures released over the weekend. The stock dived on news of Tesla's SolarCity bid, falling more than the value of its offer. Tesla shares dropped 1.2 percent Tuesday to $213.98.
