Nation remains on edge after police shootings, officer deaths

The emotional aftershocks from the nation’s recent spate of fatal shootings by and of police intensified Monday, with the Dallas police chief revealing that he and his family have received death threats ever since a gunman killed five officers there last week.
On the eve of a memorial service for those slain officers, Chief David Brown turned highly personal at a news briefing, speaking of the toll the violence is taking on his department.
“We’re all on edge,’’ he said. “My brain is fried. I’m running on fumes. . . . We’re asking cops to do too much in this country.’’
