The horror of this month's news in Jersey City was bad enough.

Mindy Ferencz, 31, Douglas Miguel Rodriguez, 49 and Moshe Deutsch, 24 died inside the JC Kosher Supermarket when two shooters got out of a van and opened fire with rifles on the store on Martin Luther King Drive earlier this month. Jersey City police detective Joseph Seals was gunned down in a cemetery by the same shooters shortly before, authorities say.

There's so much we still don't know. But what's unmistakable: The sheer tragedy is overwhelming.

And yet scammers with fake charities have made it worse.
