On this week’s edition of “The New York Times Close Up” with Sam Roberts: The Synagogue slaughter in Pittsburgh; pipe bombs sent to Trump critics; Blacks murdered in a Kentucky supermarket. The increase in violence by extremists on the far right. Why did law enforcement fail to see and fail to act on the rising threat of white nationalism? We talk to the author of a provocative piece in the Times Magazine. Plus: the Midterm elections generated the biggest voter turnout in history.
