The man who allegedly opened fire in a Pittsburgh synagogue Saturday morning, killing 10 and injuring a dozen, was reportedly a frequent poster on Gab, a relatively new social network that has attracted many from the far-right fringe.
Robert Bowers, the suspected shooter, reportedly joined Gab at the beginning of this year, using it to post a series of anti-Semitic messages and redistribute many more from other users. Immediately before he allegedly attacked the synagogue, Bowers took aim at HIAS, a Jewish organization that helps refugees.
