    Sad that peaceful gatherings such as places of worship are being targets.

    There's a lot of angry people out there.
    I'm under the belief that prescription meds make them worse over time.

    Trump: 'Wacko' who opened fire at Pittsburgh synagogue should get death penalty

    President Trump condemned the gunman who opened fire in a Pittsburgh synagogue on Saturday, killing eight people, saying that the shooter "should pay the ultimate price."

    Trump spoke to reporters at Joint Base Andrews before departing for a rally in Illinois, lamenting the "terrible, terrible things going on with hate."

    Asked about what could be done to curb such violence, Trump suggested bringing the death penalty "into vogue."

    "We should stiffen up our laws in terms of the death penalty," he said. "When people do this they should get the death penalty …they should very much bring the death penalty into vogue."

    Very sad. Tragic news. Happened during a baby naming ceremony. They were visibly shaken and some law enforcement said it was among the worst scenes they'd ever witnessed. Prayers with the families and people of Pittsburgh.

    I lived in Squirrel Hill for a few years. It is a very nice neighborhood, generally quiet, and safe. It has sizable Jewish population, ranging from real Orthodox to cultural Jews, however it is ethnically and racially diverse. Has a lot of students, due to it's proximity to CMU, Pitt, and Chatham colleges.. The fact that this has happened here is frankly shocking. Victim count is now 11 dead, and two cops in critical condition.

    If this doesn't qualify for the death penalty, I don't know what does.
    You lost. Get over it.

    There are no words that can express the sadness and simultaneous outrage for this fn atrocity. A nation grieves with you Pittsburgh.

    He probably will get the death penalty, but I doubt that is any sort of deterrent to this type of act since the vast majority of them end up dead on the scene. Hard to believe this guy didn't, shooting at the cops

    I would guess based on descriptions of the crime scene that there are children involved. Just horrific.

    No criminal record apparently.

    That's just horrible. It's pretty sad when you've reached a point that you should be armed in church. The bad thing about the death penalty is how long that pile of shit will sit in prison before it happens. You should be 1 appeal unless it's a 100% certainty you did it. The next day at dawn you should be shot.


    I worked in the Jewish community for a year and they certainly are always a target. Not only of nutjob muslims, but stupid nazi dirtbags. They must always remain on gaurd.

    Condolences to all the families that have been affected by this cowardly act. I'll leave the judgement to God but the shooter needs prayer too. I'm not making excuses for his behavior BTW...

    Prayers for the entire community. Why there is still hatred of Jewish people is completely beyond me. One of many things I do not understand about this world.

    I agree. I just don't understand it at all. I am a very good friend of a Israeli American and he is as apple pie as you can get. Absolutely normal in almost every respect. Where this jewish hatred comes from is just beyond me. I just don't understand how they are threatening to anyone (well, except the Muslims).

    Refer to post #55 in the Migrant Caravan thread. This was the shooters motive.

    Are you injecting the meth or just smoking it?

    Because the despicable murderous acts of a bigoted, evil psychopath are so similar to someone expressing the utter failures of our government tying into their citizenry being entitled to the right to bear arms are so eerily similar, it's almost uncanny. Quite scary actually.

    Again, fucking idiot.

    Easy. Because Trog learning the killer didn't vote for Trump and wasn't a Trump supporter was such a letdown.
    Right Trog?

    Was at my bud's house all day making beer. He has a TV in the garage so we're watching this on the news. He's a smart guy but not very politically aware, it's just not something he pays a lot of attention to.
    Him: "How come people don't like Jews? I don't get it."
    Me: "I don't have a good answer either. Been going on for centuries. I mean, there's nutjobs out there who think the Jews control all the media and banks and blame their problems on them. Hitler got a whole country to follow him based on that. That's all I got."
    "It is not the multitude of ale houses that occasions a disposition to drunkenness among the common people; but that disposition arising from other causes necessarily gives employment to a multitude of ale houses." -- Adam Smith, 1776

    What he posted at Gab.com immediately before he murdered 11 innocent people.
