After yesterday's shooting at the Holocaust Museum in Washington D.C. that left a security guard dead and the shooter (apparently an 88-year-old white supremacist) wounded, the NYPD has increased security at almost 60 Jewish sites in the city. Bomb sniffing dogs were seen at the Jewish Museum and uniformed cops were stationed outside the Museum of Jewish Heritage right after the D.C. shooting. The NYPD told the Daily News, "We adjust our counterterrorism resources on a daily basis depending on events around the world." David Norwell of the Museum of Jewish Heritage told WCBS 2, "The incident in Washington, ignorance dominates."
