Bandaged Pittsburgh synagogue 'shooter' makes court appearance in wheelchair

Bowers appeared briefly in federal court in a wheelchair and handcuffs Monday to face charges he killed 11 people in what is believed to be the deadliest attack on Jews in US history.

Cohen had a brief conversation with Bowers to ask him if he was in pain or needed anything. He says he hopes to one day forgive Bowers the way relatives of victims killed in 2015 at the Emanuel AME Church forgave the shooter.

Three members of his congregation were among those killed when a man armed with an assault rifle and three handguns on October 27 stormed the Tree of Life temple in the city's heavily Jewish Squirrel Hill neighborhood yelling "All Jews must die" as he opened fire on worshipers.

"Since 2017, there have been increased anti-Semitic acts", Rabbi Oblath said, adding that members at Congregation Beth Shalom have a connection to the community and individuals who were murdered at Tree of Life synagogue in Pennsylvania.

Bowers, who had made anti-Semitic posts online and shouted about killing Jewish people during the attack, has been charged with federal hate crimes and could face the death penalty.

According to a Monday report, the suspect in Saturday's mass murder at a Pittsburgh synagogue was raving about hating Jewish people as he was brought into the hospital for treatment of his injuries.

The federal court in Pittsburgh ordered him held without bond for the deadliest attack ever on America's Jewish community.

Among his alleged victims were brothers David and Cecil Rosenthal, husband and wife Bernice and Sylvan Simon, as well as 97 year-old Rose Mallinger.

But he has said little about Bowers, and shown little interest in joining a national debate about whether the country's hostile political climate or loose gun regulations helped enable the attack.

The White House press secretary has called Bowers "a coward who hated President Trump because @POTUS is such an unapologetic defender of the Jewish community and state of Israel". Brady said while the investigation continues, his office must present this case to a federal grand jury within 30 days of today's court appearance, under law.

"I can't sit by and watch my people get slaughtered", he posted.

Camerota later asked Myers if he would like Trump to visit the synagogue in the aftermath of the shooting.

"There were three shots, and he (Mr Wax) falls back into the room where we were", he said.

It is apparent at least eight souls lost their lives in a shooting at Tree of Life Synagogue.

The president of the hospital where a wounded Bowers was taken said that he was ranting against Jews even as Jewish staff members were treating him.

"Why I picked those particular examples is that was the same commitment made to the Muslim community after 9/11 in Pittsburgh", he explained.

"I think you're raising one of those great questions that people far smarter than I can answer", Myers said.

Rabbi Jonathan Perlman closed the door and pushed them into a large supply closet, he said. Bowers, who has a history of posting anti-Semitic material online, will get a court-appointed attorney and was remanded to the custody of US marshals. "Screw your optics, I'm going in".

"We thought it was important to have someone stand up for the people who were killed or injured - who were unable to be here", Pushinsky said after the arraignment.
