They were prepared to kill and they waited till the Christmas party to gun them down. I got the message. It wasn't work place violence. It was a Christian massacre .

Why not wait until Christmas day then and do a massacre at a church? If workplace had absolutely nothing to do with it, then they would have waited. That building, those people were targeted for a reason beyond Christianity.

He also worked at the place he shot up and had an argument with someone at the party just before going home and loading up on weapons. To understand what happened we need to not jump to conclusions and let the evidence take the investigation where ever it goes. You could be right in the end. You could be wrong. It doesn't help to spread humors in the meantime until we know all the facts that can be found. If you truly are in law enforcement, I'd think you'd know the difference between letting the evidence lead you instead of having a foregone conclusion and looking for evidence to support it.
Don't let your ignorance get in the way of shooting your mouth off about things of which you know nothing. We all know (in LE) what happened but are stopped by politicians and bosses (who also know the truth of this event) all to make the morons among you feel better about the great job they're doing and try to deflect the truth to something you can handle.

People like you ARE the problem and you are worthy of being dismissed, nothing more. Put your faith in the system and obambo. Yeah, that's the ticket. Oh, and watch out where you shop in the next few weeks, malls are soft targets too.

I work for a big company so I highly highly highly doubt we would cancel. However, if we did, I would hope people would get organized to meet somewhere outside of work to have it. So stupid to not have it.

Unless I have missed it, the motive for the killings has still not be determined, right?

It seems to me that as it took place at a party for Farook and his co-workers, that that it is now being reported that there were were no Muslims involved in the attack other than Farook and his wife, and that, reportedly, Farook had exchanged angry words with a co-worker before leaving the party and then returned, that this just MIGHT have been a incident of workplace rage that escalated into a terrorist attack at the urging of his wife. I say this because Farook was born in the U.S., and his wife had just arrived from Saudi Arabia about two years ago.

However, at this point, I think that the motivation for the attack can only be guessed at.

P.S. to Wayland Woman -- Sorry that I did not read your post before I read yours because you basically said the same thing I did before I did.

Default Sayed Farook - San Bernardino Terrorist - Described Himself as "Very Liberal."

Sayed Farook, one of the San Bernardino terrorists, described himself in a dating profile as "very liberal."

Quote:
On the same page, Farook preaches his love of snowboarding, camping, and working on cars, and further describes his personality as cautious, reserved, skeptical and very liberal.


What does this mean? It means that Democrats and Liberals can put away their silly default stereotypes about domestic terrorists being "right wing Christian nut jobs." That's what it means.

This is an intriguing and perplexing case. Both sides have some grounds for argument, although it looks like its leaning towards Islamic terrorism. But maybe they were just evil? They didn't seem as bug nutty as Robert Dear, at least. But Farook did lash out at his coworkers and at his workplace. But he picked a time when others would be there. And he had it planned in advance and had his wife as a willing participant. He wanted to tape it and share the bloodshed and violence. He built bombs. Bought body armor. They'll have to go over his home for fingerprints and check his computer and phone records to see who his accomplices and co conspirators may have been.
So who wins or loses? they used assault rifles, apparently. I say apparently because sometimes people say that as in the case of Robert Dear and then later no details on the weapons are made public and we're left with speculation. But it was an act of terror, also. Islamic terror. The feds don't win, they let this one get by them. The police don't win, these two got away from the scene and were only caught later when they returned, supposedly to attack the police. Both the anti gun and pro gun lobby can claim justification. Obama's credibility is zero already so he doesn't win. The people who were killed and injured and their families lose. Maybe Isis wins. The gun makers win. People will buy more guns now.

describes his personality as cautious, reserved, skeptical.........this right here would tell you he was a Liberal.


All he left out was "angry."
