Capital Gazette Leaves Its Editorial Section Blank Day After Shooting

Morning after mass shooting, Capital Gazette publishes Friday edition

"The terror and violence that we saw at Capital Gazette is another terrible example why our laws need to be updated to reflect modern-day crime", said Rep. Katherine Clark, D-Mass., who has been pushing for years to bolster federal online harassment laws and increase cybertraining for police departments around the country.

Jarrod W. Ramos has been charged with five counts of first-degree murder in one of the deadliest attacks on journalists in USA history.

In an editorial signed by a collection of survivors of the mass shooting at the Capital Gazette newspaper that resulted in the death of five of their colleagues, the staffers thanked everyone across the country for their show of support before pointing out that - since the shooting - they have been on the receiving end of more death threats.

President Trump took a moment at a White House tax bill event Friday to mourn the five victims of the shooting at the Capital Gazette newspaper in Annapolis, Maryland. According to court documents, the judge said, "There is nothing" to prove "anything that was published" was in fact false.

After the attack, members of the public held a vigil, a march, sent condolences and hundreds subscribed to the paper. She Googled him, found a yearbook picture and realised they apparently did go to Arundel High together. The woman, who was not named in the story, tried to help and suggested that he seek counseling. "I just thought I was being friendly", she said. He called her vulgar names and even told her to kill herself, the woman told the paper. The woman said she hadn't written him in months.

The Rev. M. Dion Thompson, who worked as a journalist at The Baltimore Sun for 15 years, made the sadness a focus of his sermon at St. Anne's Episcopal Church in Annapolis on Saturday evening. But then he started again, nastier than ever. Belichick graduated from Annapolis High School in 1970. "It all came from a public record". In the column written by Hartley, the woman described how Ramos had stalked her online and perhaps caused her to lose her job. But moments before the shootings, it posted: "Fuck you, leave me alone".

Ramos, who was 31 years old at the time, pleaded guilty to a misdemeanour harassment charge. Also in 2011, a peace order - an order issued by a judge to stay away from someone and to avoid contacting them - was filed against Ramos.

Then Ramos "went silent" for more than two years, Marquardt said. "And this is apparently one of those situations". "We are in a Mayberry kind of town, we're in shock we're going to be grappling with".

During Ramos' 2013 appeal, the appellate court judge in that case appeared to rebuke Ramos, who was representing himself in the matter: "A lawyer would nearly certainly have told him not to proceed with this case".

Clark, the MA congresswoman, said the scourge of online harassment is further complicated by the fact that many law enforcement agencies - particularly small and midsized ones - have little capacity to train officers on how to investigate incidents.

Sgt. Amy Miguez, an Annapolis Police Department spokeswoman, said that she received a text message early on Thursday from Gazette reporter Phil Davis about a story.
