Death toll is increasing. Shooter apparently still firing from the 3rd floor, likely has hostages.

President Butthead used this as an opportunity to say that this wouldn't have happened if the synagogue had had an armed guard.

In NYC in the 1970s, synagogues often had armed guards. More specifically on duty NYC policemen.

Trump proclaimed "off with his head" which is more striking than saying "if they protection, maybe it wouldn't have been as bad".
He added: “They should really suffer the ultimate price—pay the ultimate price. I’ve felt this way for a very long time. People disagree with me, and I can’t imagine why.”

Earlier this month, the president called for the death penalty to be brought against “criminals” who kill police officers. The president has issued calls for a stricter death penalty policy since the 2016 presidential campaign.

Trump was asked about tighter gun laws, which he discounted, saying they had “little to do with it.”

“If they had protection inside, the results would have been far better. If they had some kind of protection inside the temple, maybe it could have been a very much different situation,” Trump said. “They didn’t have protection. They had a maniac walk in and they didn’t have any protection.”

Next up, watch for that scumbag Louis Farrakhan to praise the shooter for eliminating eleven "termites."

See for example:
Twitter shrugs off Louis Farrakhan 'anti-Termite' tweet about Jewish people

Will the mainstream media condemn Louis Farrakhan for inciting violence against Jews?

No?

They excoriated Trump for Florida Man Pipe Bomber™ even before they knew who did it.

Hypocrites.

If the mainstream media want to stop being called the enemy of the people, then perhaps they should stop acting like it.

The free press is not the enemy of the people.I've no respect for people who claim that it is.

The latest episode in The NarrativeTM:

The shooter used some Twitter-like social network called Gab that doesn't moderate.

Up next: Calls from the LIBBERUL media for the government to squash Jack Dorsey's less prosperous competition.

Because silencing crazies makes them harmless.

Gab is favored by white supremacists and others of like mind.

In this case I guess the perpetrator expressed himself using several firearms and premeditated murder. Now his hateful words are getting spread far and wide. Violence has been an effective means for such people to get their viciousness "go viral."

...and it's a bit convenient to call such killers "crazy". Ain't necessarily so.
