On Thursday, June 28, 2018 Jarrod Ramos opened fire with a shotgun in the offices of Maryland’s Capital Gazette, killing five and wounding several others.
In an editorial published Sunday, the surviving writers at the Capital Gazette said, “Here’s what else we won’t forget: Death threats and emails from people we don’t know celebrating our loss, or the people who called for one of our reporters to get fired because she got angry and cursed on national television after witnessing her friends getting shot. We won’t forget being called an enemy of the people.”
The last comment refers to statements by President Donald Trump, who has, in the past said that he considers journalists “an enemy of the people.”
