Capital Gazette Slams President Trump For His Fake News Remarks – Even Though Man With Longtime Vendetta Shot Up Newspaper
Capital Gazette shooter Jarrod Ramos
Jarrod Ramos entered the Capital Gazette building in Annapolis, Maryland last Thursday afternoon, and shot and killed five people; many more were injured.
Authorities identified 38-year-old Jarrod Ramos using facial recognition software because he damaged his fingertips.
Ramos previously sued the Capital Gazette for defamation and lost; he became enraged and began to harass the newspaper.
Ramos threatened and harassed Capital Gazette journalists for years.
He created a Twitter account and posted hundreds of tweets about his defamation case against the paper; he even harassed the judge assigned to the case.
But the Capital Gazette took a shot at President Trump in a letter published Sunday over his remarks fake news media is ‘the enemy of the people.’
[Excerpt from letter]
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.
No, we won’t forget that. Because exposing evil, shining light on wrongs and fighting injustice is what we do.
The tragic shooting had nothing to do with President Trump.
Below is a screenshot of the crazed killer, Jarrod Ramos’ Twitter account.
His Twitter bio reads: “Dear reader: I created this page to defend myself. Now I’m suing the shit out of half of AA County and making corpses of corrupt careers and corporate entities.”
A tweet was sent shortly before the shooting Thursday from the Twitter account, presumably by Jarrod Ramos. [Time displayed in screenshot is PST]
Thursday’s tweet was the first tweet Jarrod Ramos sent from the account in over two years.
The tweet said, “F*ck you, leave me alone @JudgeMoylanfrnd”
Judge Moyland was assigned to Ramos’ defamation suit against the paper; the Twitter account tagged in the tweet appears to be another account created by Jarrod Ramos.
Jarrod Ramos clearly had a vendetta against the newspaper going back to a 2011 defamation lawsuit, yet the Capital Gazette still managed to tie the tragic shooting to President Trump.
