Yesterday, it was in Poway, California:
A 19-year-old man armed with an assault rifle walked into a suburban San Diego synagogue Saturday morning and opened fire, killing one person and injuring three others, including a child, in a mass shooting that the mayor cast as a “hate crime.”
The San Diego Sheriff's Office said that John Earnest of San Diego had been arrested in connection with the shooting at the Chabad of Poway but they didn't believe there were any other suspects. Police said he has had no prior contact with police and was being questioned by local detectives and local FBI agents Saturday afternoon.What do we know about the shooter? Take a guess!
Sheriff William Gore said authorities were looking into a rambling, multi-page manifesto that was published minutes before the shooting by a person with the same name, in which the writer claimed Jews were destroying whites and praised attacks in Pittsburgh and New Zealand. [snip]
Authorities were also “looking into the possibility” of Earnest's involvement in a mosque fire in nearby Escondido last month, a claim that is made in the manifesto, Gore said.The shooting came 6 months to the day from the horrific murder of 11 congregants at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, PA.
Now, for the chasers from the white nationalists' commander- in- chief:

This follows the Trump regime's decision to disband the domestic terrorism intelligence group in the Department of Homeland Security, including reassigning its last two experts on white nationalist terrorism. That's no unfortunate coincidence, folks.
BONUS: To say these thugs have been emboldened would be an understatement.
