Jewish Doctor Asked Synagogue Gunman: How Are You Feeling?

Jewish Doctor Asked Synagogue Gunman: How Are You Feeling?

Jewish leaders across South Florida on Sunday preached peace and kindness a day after a gunman killed 11 people at a synagogue in Pittsburgh. The county medical examiner described finding ammunition "casings everywhere".

Authorities said the suspect, Robert Bowers, 46, of Baldwin, Pa., was charged late Saturday with 29 federal counts.

The murder charges are all punishable by death.

A tactical team found Bowers on the third floor, where he shot two officers multiple times, an affidavit said. "It's real once you hear the names".

The mass shooting, called the deadliest attack on Jews in USA history, hit particularly close to home for Aaron, who said she used to live just a block away from Tree of Life, which is nestled in the Squirrel Hill neighborhood near several universities. Four officers were also injured.

According to a criminal complaint filed Saturday, he told police he "wanted all Jews to die and that they (Jews) were committing genocide to his people".

Charging documents said the suspect, Robert Gregory Bowers, armed with an AR-15 assault rifle and three handguns, wanted all Jews to die and that Jews "were committing genocide to his people", an apparent reference to his belief that a Jewish refugee agency assisting foreign nationals entering the US endangered non-Jews in America. Authorities have said Bowers used an AR-15 rifle and three handguns in the attack, which also injured several police officers.

Eisenberg, the former synagogue president, said officials at Tree of Life had not gotten any threats that he knew of before the shooting. Bowers, who was in fair condition at a hospital, was expected to face federal hate-crime charges.

Eleven people, whose ages ranged from 54 to 97, were killed in the attack, including a couple and two brothers.

The White House has ordered all US flags on government property to be flown at half-staff through Wednesday "as a mark of solemn respect for the victims of the awful act of violence".

Potential Medicare Reimbursement Demo to Lower Part B Drug Prices
The United States spent almost $26 billion for Medicare Part B drugs in 2016, the most recent year for which data is available. In those countries, the government health systems directly negotiate with pharmaceutical makers over the price of their drugs.

"You have to talk to them in a way they understand", he said.

The emerging evidence strongly suggests that the attack was motivated by anti-Semitism and was the deadliest against the Jewish community in the history of the US, as per the Anti Defamation League, a Jewish non-governmental organisation.

As officials try to put together a picture of the alleged Pittsburgh synagogue shooter, one focus of the investigation is his social media postings, the FBI said.

Ray Iwanonkiw Sr., a resident of a neighboring community agrees with Trump's position: "We need protection", he continued, explaining that while he doesn't believe violence will solve violence, he just doesn't see any sensible way to stop what he calls the "insensible".

"We wish to respond to evil with good, as our faith instructs us, and send a powerful message of compassion through action", the groups said in a statement.
