Robert Gregory Bowers-Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania shooter-was indicted with forty-four counts on Wednesday, October 31, 2018.

On Saturday, October 27, 2018, 46 year old Bowers shot and killed many at the Tree of Life Synagogue. Bowers killed 11 people, injured 10 people, 4 of which where police officers, and paralyzed 2 of the officers due to a gunshot wound. Due to Bowers actions, his 44-count indictment, he is accused of federal hate crimes.

“I think it’s appropriate, I think it’s necessary, and I think justice needs to take place. He needs to be evaluated for mental health status, but if he’s found to be of sound mind I think it’s a hate act and he deserves the full punishment,” said English Teacher Vali Crawford.

Many believe Bowers was totally wrong for the commotion he caused and what he did to those innocent people at the Tree of Life Synagogue.

“I don’t think his punishment was actually severe enough, for somebody that decides to go in to a synagogue in the middle of prayers  on a Saturday which was Shevat, which is one of the holiest days of our week,” said freshman Iran Malka.

Some believe his punishment was fair and that he got what he deserved  and others feel as if he needs to be charged with something more reasonable such as the death penalty.

“I don’t think this is something he should get 20 or 30 years for in prison. I feel that he needs the death penalty, that he needs to die for what he did to those unarmed, innocent people, but luckily no children were killed,” said Malka.

This tragic event will always be remembered in the hearts of those affected.
